Khalid sets himself ablaze in Chandauli and blames ‘mob lynching’ which forced him to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’

These days, it is easy and trendy for the Muslims to chalk up any issue, any accident and any problem to “lynching” and “Jai Shri Ram”.   Lynching is the new caricature of Intolerance narrative in India.  The going around narrative is that if you do that, no one will ask anymore questions and buy that narrative and arrest those that these victim card carrying folks who pretend to be Secular utter as the criminals.

Sometimes these things do not work.  Because police actually does the work.

In a new incident from Chandauli, 17-yr-old boy, Khalid set himself on fire.  Eye witnesses saw that.  But what did the family say was the reason for his “accident”?  That a mob came and forced him to chant “Jai Shri Ram”.  When he did not, he was set ablaze.

The kicker was that he was changing his statements and then the eye witness confirmed that this guy set himself on fire.

This was nipped in the bud by swift police action.  But imagine if the media vultures had reached and promoted this before the police took action?  What then?  It would have gone all the way to Washington Post or NYT before we could even pronounce the idiot’s name who set himself ablaze!


Secular narrative of lynching and blaming the Hindus is now an epidemic.  If someone from a small town is doing this, out of nowhere, then there has to be some connection to the larger picture.  Is this the going around undercurrent in masjids and communities?  Otherwise, how can someone try to do this from a remote town?

It is THIS that should be worrying the Indians.  That fear that Indian society is being torn apart?  Well THIS is where one should look seriously at.  If we are looking at things incorrectly and incorrectly analyzing things, we will be harming our ownselves!
