How Ashoka University’s Prof. Sabyasachi Das played victim after his shoddy research paper was called out

The Ashoka University saga is a classic case of claiming victimhood for personal gain. This is the professor who started it. Sabyasachi Das. Phd from Yale in Economics. He wrote a paper called “Democratic Backsliding in The World’s Largest Democracy”.

The paper makes wild insinuations about the integrity of Indian elections. Uses laughable assumptions to create sensation and to avoid any risk, simply states in the end the findings are not proof of fraud.

You know, the kind of attention seeking we have come to expect from liberal arts joints where radical subjectivity is the norm. As intended, the paper, not even peer reviewed, was used by leftist trolls and politicians to spread division & suspicion about elections so that violence can be justified. Yes, that’s the objective.

Parties like TMC that believe in violence, shared it with glee. The calculation of Das was perfect. 99.99% people will read the heading and sensation claims. Mission accomplished. More responsible people however realized election denial is a serious matter. Ashoka said they do not endorse his “research”.

This was the second time Das’s calculation was perfect. Seizing the opportunity, he resigned. This despite Ashoka only saying what they would say about every single research there. it was just the excuse he wanted.

Now many professors are threatening to quit. With a couple of well-played moves, a mediocre professor Das is now famous, a hero, a victim and with great career prospects at any of the leftist universities globally. And that, ladies and gents, is how research should be done.
