Venkatesh Prasad gives it back to Hinduphobic American ‘journalist’ euologised by The Print

Former pacer Venkatesh Prasad has given it back in style to Hinduphobic American columnist Werleman as the latter attempted to malign Hindus yet again using the Test Championships as an excuse. Prasad also called out the bigotry of Bharatiya portals such as Shekhar Gupta’s The Print that has been eulogizing the likes of Werleman.

Werleman said that he was rooting for New Zealand in the upcoming ICC Test Championship Finals. While that in itself is not a problem, what is appalling is his reasoning for the same. Displaying extreme Hinduphobia, as is his wont, he added “imagining 500 million Hindutva extremists being happy, even for a second, makes me miserable”. 

Bringing in Hindu Dharma and then attempting to justify one’s Hinduphobia using wafer-thin arguments is as low as it gets. There was no reason for the columnist to bring in Hindutva except for the fact that he seems to be extremely Hinduphobic.

Not one to be politically correct, Prasad replied “Whoever wins is fine, but what a sad low, and miserable life this man is. The fact that this man is given an opportunity to write in publications speaks poorly of the publications. Get well soon Mr. Miserable”. Prasad also said that it speaks poorly of Bharatiya publications that give space to such miserable people.

The so-called “activist against Islamophobia” is a Hinduphobic who has been called out by the UP police several times for spreading fake news. No wonder, deeply Hinduphobic Bharatiya media would co-opt such a person only because it suits their agenda and propaganda against Hindus and Hindu Dharma.

Shekhar Gupta’s The Print had earlier profiled Werleman wherein they described him as a “bigot-turned-crusader against ‘Islamophobia’ who is taking on the Indian state”. The columnist, however, has been caught peddling fake news on more than one occasion and that is something his Bharatiya cheerleaders don’t want people to know.

In their reportOpIndia pointed out several instances of fake news spread by him:

In August 2018, he took to Twitter to wrongly claim that the BJP had banned the slaughter of livestock during Eid. Werlemen also claimed that the Police Officer was forcing an Imam to declare “Qurbani is a punishable crime” to his followers in the video that he had attached.

C.J. Werlemen appears to have a special grudge against Uttar Pradesh, probably because a saffron-clad monk is the Chief Minister of the state. The tweets chosen by The Print to portray Werleman as a ‘crusader against Islamophobia’ refer to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as ‘Hindutva terrorist’.

In a separate instance, this time not involving Uttar Pradesh, Werlemen used a video depicting the violence during the Bhima-Koregaon clashes in Maharashtra and claimed that it, in fact, showed Hindus destroying Muslim property.

His obsession with relating everything to Hindu extremism and inventing lies out of thin air seems to have gone over the edge. However, he is unlikely to mend his ways as the agenda trumps everything.

As rightly pointed out, the columnist seems to hold a special grudge towards Hindu Dharma and has now taken his obsessive hatred to greater heights before being cut to size by Venkatesh Prasad.
