A disgraceful piece, and illustrates so much about popular #Hinduphobia in the media that @HinduAmerican highlights daily. Let's count the ways: 1) Ostensibly document recent events in #Kashmir, but completely erase #kashmiripandits. Not a single mention. None. (thread)
@HinduAmerican 2)Tie revocation of Art 370 to the tired, overused media narratives of Gujarat/Godhra, hagiography of @RanaAyyub, Ram temple, RSS, etc, without a single bit of original reporting. Could just read the annual (discredited) @USCIRF report instead. Goal is to make 370 about Islam (2)
@HinduAmerican @RanaAyyub @USCIRF 3)No context that the revocation of 370 is about equal protection, one law for all Indians, that those pushing for "self-determination" are pushing for a theocratic state. Dexter Filkins reported extensively on #ISIS in Iraq, but ignores #ISIS flags being unfurled in Kashmir. (3)
@HinduAmerican @RanaAyyub @USCIRF 4)Filkins interviews @RanaAyyub, @HartoshSinghBal and other trenchant critics of Modi. Couldn't fit in Kashmiri journalists like @rahulpandita @AdityaRajKaul or @AartiTikoo? This is what erodes public trust in the media & raises questions of bias.
@HinduAmerican @RanaAyyub @USCIRF @HartoshSinghBal @rahulpandita @AdityaRajKaul @AartiTikoo But then, @NewYorker reporters like @IChotiner, busy promoting the Filkins piece today, shamelessly "laughed" off @AartiTikoo's experience being cleansed from the Kashmir valley in a twitter exchange with me. Sometimes, journalistic integrity and neutrality is a farce. (end)
