Do you know, what is a sure shot formula of getting unprecedented popularity in no time?
Well, the simplest one is to use anti-Hindu content, demean Hindu gods, and hurl abuses at Hindus and it guarantees you popularity in no time. We have seen how all social media platforms without any exception have been promoting Hinduphobic content in the name of ‘freedom of speech’.
We have seen how several websites indulged in the repeated defaming of Hindu gods and cultural symbols. We have seen how various shopping portals have been caught selling materials that Hindu Gods have been showing obnoxiously.
The government, administration, and even judiciary seem to have turned a blind eye to anti-Hindu content on the online platform. In what is nothing but a travesty of justice, this freedom of speech and expression seems to be the preserve of one privileged section of society.
We have seen one such anti-Hindu act on a website Youngisthan.in, which published a highly objectionable article in the name of Hindu Dharma. This article talks about the Raas Leela, which was a divine dance form of Bhagwan Shri Krishna and Devi Radha. The article says that Shri Krishna does Raas Leela in Nidhi Van (Vrindavan), and if any watches it, then he/she will lose vision immediately.
This is not even an article, it’s just a content of a couple of lines with a highly objectionable picture of Devi Radha. The picture portrays our revered deities in a demeaning way, all in the name of the content.
A Twitter user @I_am_the_Story has raised this concern and we believe this must reach a logical and legal conclusion, as we must not let these people portray our gods in such a demeaning way.
The user has already complained to the Cyber Crime unit of Mumbai Police. He has accused the portal of insulting our Hindu icons and portraying them in a vile and disrespectful manner and demanded strict action against the author and owner of this portal.
Here it is important to know that, whenever we hear the name of Sri Krishna we all get reminded of his divine flute and Raas Leela. There are many myths in society regarding the Raas Leela of Sri Krishna, people even today try to point out the negativity in this act, but this has been pure and divine.
However, anti-Hindu elements always misuse any opportunity to present this as something immoral conduct and even raise questions over the character of Shri Krishna. Even in the recent movie “The Kerala Story”, it has been observed how a Muslim girl concocted the facts and showed Bhagwan Krishna in a bad light, all to brainwash the Hindu roommate.
Such incidents must raise the alarm for Hindus. We must ensure our culture, dharma, and deities are portrayed correctly, and ensure nobody demeans them or misuse them for their vested interests.
