'Politics At Work': S Jaishankar Slams US Media's 'Biased' India Coverage

The External Affairs Minister was addressing a gathering of Indian-Americans

Washington:
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has slammed the mainstream American media, including The Washington Post, for their "biased" coverage of India.
"I look at the media. You know, there are some newspapers you know, exactly, what they are going to write including one in this town," Mr Jaishankar told a gathering of Indian-Americans from across the country amid laughter and applause on Sunday.
The prestigious Washington Post is the national daily published from Washington DC and is currently being owned by Jeff Bezos of Amazon.

"My point is there are biases, there are efforts really, to determine... Look, the more India goes its way and the people who believe that they were the custodians and the shapers of India lose ground in India the more actually, some of these debaters gonna come outside," Mr Jaishankar said, responding to a question on the increase in "anti-Indian forces" in this country.
Such groups, he asserted, are "not winning in India". Such groups, the minister noted, will try and win outside or try and shape India from outside.
"This is something which we need to be aware of. It is important to contest. It isn't because most Americans will not know what sort of the nuances and the complexities of back home, so, it's important not to sit back, not to let other people define me. That is something which I feel as a community is very important for us," he said.
Responding to a question on misrepresentation of the Kashmir issue in the American capital, Mr Jaishankar said if there is a terrorist incident, it doesn't matter what faith the person who's killed belongs to.
"If there are Indian soldiers or Indian policemen who are abducted; If there are people working for the government, or citizens going about their business, who will lose their lives?," he added.
"How often do you hear people talking about it; pronouncing it, in fact, look at the media coverage. What does the media cover? what does the media not cover?," the External Affairs Minister asked.
That is how actually opinions and perceptions are shaped, he underlined.
"There is a big song and dance about the Internet being cut. Now, if you've reached the stage where you say an Internet cut is more dangerous than the loss of human lives, then what can I say?" Mr Jaishankar said amid applause from the audience.
"If you look at A (Article) 370-issue. What was a temporary provision of the Constitution was finally put to rest this was supposed to be an act of majority. This was supposed to be majoritarian. Tell me what was happening in Kashmir was not majoritarian?, I think the way facts are slanted, things are laid out. What is right, what is wrong is confused. This is actually politics at work.
"We should not let it go. We should contest it. We should educate. We should shape the narrative. This is a competitive world. We need to get our messages out. That is my message to you," he said.
"We are not serving our country well or our beliefs well, or even our sense of what is right and wrong by staying out of these debates. I think we have opinions we must express them we must share it with people, we must educate others on what is right and what is wrong.

"I honestly believe that if you look at the whole 370, the Jammu and Kashmir situation, to me, it's mind-boggling. Something whose merits were so obvious, should actually there even be people who would think different way," Mr Jaishankar said.

Relations are not under any strain, we don't have master slave relationship unlike a few.
We both are mature nations and know how to manage our bilateral ties.
What Jaishankar said is a comment on the US media and how polity is changing within the country.
Having realised there is no chance of winning inside the country, the erstwhile power brokers and their beneficiaries have now resorted to outsourcing issues and narratives abroad.
Begging the global polis to act against India is the latest "ghazwa-e-hind" type yearning that helps some people sleep better at night.

When India criticises US for F-16 deal it becomes a cry baby. The word “Randi Rona” gave ecstatic pleasure to some of our friends on PDF. It was used so often, that the word Randi Rona, itself started doing Randi Rona on it’s over exploitation. 😀

When it joins any US cause it becomes a US bitch.

Strange are the ways of those who love you. Itna pyaar dete hai ki sambhala nahi jaata.😈

India must surely be trying US patience: the treachery in Afghanistan, the breaking of sanctions against Iran, the siding with Russia, the injurious democracy in India, the export of RSS thugs into Europe etc. etc. The catalogue of Indian crimes just gets larger and larger and Uncle Sam is surely getting angry to the point of slamming sanctions on India.

Actually it is a dual lane highway with both US and India testing each other.
US giving weapons to its adversaries and India trying its hand at what it can.

India remains important to US due to China angle. People in power must have assessed the impact of these actions.

Sanctions are a little too much but Pakistan may end up getting more weapons. Ghar baithe baithe Pakistan ki kismat chamak gayi.

No one in US admin believes the rubbish you spew, indulging in 24x7 propaganda only helps you cope with your failures.

At the end of day, lies don't get you anywhere, so continue wasting your efforts like you've been doing from last few decades. 😉

What really matters is that there are rational minds on both ends. It's that easy and simple.
You pick up an issue, spend $$$ to propagate the narrative through your jihadi infested network, make song and dance over it for days and weeks.. and all it takes for us is one frank discussion between diplomats of both countries to lay bare the facts.

Effort- 10/10, Result- 0/10. Be happy.

If you think the US are stupid then you must be living in Modi land. India has a use by date and the expiration date is very near.

Hope US take action against India for the scams they are perpetrating:-

That's why I say you guys are absolute failures and will remain failures, the sound inside your mind is too loud for you to listen to anything else.




You don't understand America.

Thanks ya, means a lot coming from someone who touches himself every second day thinking the world will sanction India for the imaginary persecution of jihadis.

Those who are digging a grave for India are in for a rude shock.
Jaishankar has navigated Indian foreign policy with deftness that would be an envy to many. More so within the neighbourhood. Latching on to one of his statement and writing an Indian obituary is for the naive.

This is the latest from him-


Go figure.

These Hindutvas got CEO jobs at big US tech companies for being an anti-China snitch. They think it was all due to merit LOL

+ the biggest one of them all, leeching on US economy and sending that money to US enemy Russia in form of weapons and oil purchase. Americans don't take this level of double dealing lightly.
