Rinse, repeat

A report which went viral on social media yesterday has alleged AMU Medical College canteen of serving ‘beef biryani’.

Next:

BJP Mayor Shakuntala Bharti, along with party leaders and several right wing activists, held a demonstration outside the office of Senior Superintendent of Police today, demanding registration of an FIR against the contractor of AMU medical college canteen for serving ‘beef biryani’.

Bottomline:

“The contract for the canteen was ending on February 23. Some vested interests which were eyeing the lucrative contract deliberately floated a malicious rumour suggesting that cow meat was being served,” he said.

Patriotism — and the various Tebbit’s Tests the Sangh Parivar has tacked on to it — has indeed become the last refuge of the scoundrel; a license to do as you please so long as you wrap yourself in the fig-leaf of flag and country.

Incidentally, note the pattern? Toss some incendiary allegation out there; get ‘leaders’ to take up the ‘issue’; build controversy…

And while on manufacturing evidence — the gilding of the ‘anti-national’ lily, in the case of Kanhaiya Kumar, continues apace. I am not sure

I am not sure which is worse — that this party and its various arms relies so much on digital dirty tricks, or that it is so incredibly inept.
