Media - Politics 776

How do media incite people for genocide?  (3) Chris Wilson (@Chris___Wilson) / Twitter
There seems to be mounting evidence of active incitement by the UK and other governments of genocide against the left in Indonesia (rather than just support for military-led killings as previously known): January 24, 2022.

Why do states destabilize unfriendly states? If there is a war between Russia and NATO + US due to democracy or any other reason in Ukraine and Europe, then the question arises why should Europeans (Russian, Germans, French, Polish, Ukrainians, Armenians etc only suffer? Are violent conflicts more in unipolar world? How can children achieve and maintain peace to live in happines? Humanity must resist war by all means. But what should be done, if war is imposed? Should humanity accept it as destiny? Then the question arises, what is the use of education? People react when people suffer. Many people do not react with the others suffering. This is the sad image of the society.
"Shocking new details have emerged of Britain’s role in one of the most brutal massacres of the postwar 20th century.
Last year the Observer revealed how British officials secretly deployed black propaganda in the 1960s to incite prominent Indonesians to “cut out” the “communist cancer”.
It is estimated that at least 500,000 people linked to the Indonesia communist party (PKI) were eliminated between 1965 and 1966.
Documents newly released in the National Archives show how propaganda specialists from the Foreign Office sent hundreds of inflammatory pamphlets to leading anti-communists in Indonesia, inciting them to kill the foreign minister Dr Subandrio and claiming that ethnic Chinese Indonesians deserved the violence meted out to them".

Historical Memory - New York Article 

Historical memory causes conflicts. Should historical memory be erased to achieve permanent peace? In other words, should victims forgive people and groups for the atrocities committed? "The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; wise forgive but do not forget," Szasz said. I add: "to be wiser, alter historical memories." Media, political leaders, elites, and scholars must guide the next generations in breaking the chain of conflict. Media of west, east, north, and south should safeguard humanity.
Should scholars write the war on history is a war on democracy? Political protests are good to win the elections and bring unity of religion, caste, and color, but they are bad when they destabilize unfriendly nations. This causes destruction, migration, and poverty.

If you want to destabilize an unfriendly country, use the internet. Shaheen Bagh and Farmers protests are in line with destabilization tactics used in Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Libya, and Syria. The result is known to all intelligent people and young in particular. Those protests lead to massacres, destruction, and migration, including rapes of women and children. Humanity must learn lessons from history. All destruction was done in the name of human rights.

"I sometimes get angry emails from frustrated people asking, 'When is the military going to march on D.C. and clean out that den of vipers?'" Rhodes said. He said he responded by asking them whom the Constitution designates to suppress insurrections and repel invasions, and he added: "It is not the standing army. It is the militia. And who is the militia? We, the people."

Media 
Free Speech by 

By Jihoon Sung

On May 3, 2020, the world marked World Press Freedom Day, paying tribute to journalists of the world who contribute their time and effort to inform the public. The European Unionthe United Nations, and the United States put out official statements in celebrating the day. Still, this particular year, these statements had a unique common theme: accuracy in the time of coronavirus pandemic. This article will explore the climate of freedom of speech in the midst of a deadly pandemic, alongside the ‘fake news’ phenomenon known to promote misinformation into people’s media diets. It will discuss the nature of fake news, sustaining freedom of speech that coexists with fake news, and potential misinformation management proposed by scholars.

The ‘fake news’ phenomenon had been ongoing even before Trump popularized the term during the 2016 United States Presidential Election whenever he was faced with unfavorable media coverage. According to Alcock, the current fake news phenomenon resembles early forms of propaganda, perhaps in one way, similar to tactics used by the Nazi regime during the Second World War, which involved “making false news seem genuine and making genuine news seem false.”[1] With the coronavirus pandemic ongoing, fake news became more vibrant, and social media companies have come under pressure to restrict such information from their platforms.

There is a division between scholars on how false information ended up on people’s media diet. Zaller argued that freedom of speech involves creating a climate where people do not fear speaking. But certain figures abuse this climate to gain fame and profit by spreading false information.[2] Borchers claims that false news emerges with a lack of news literacy education, keeps people, and Trump, in their information bubble, which often has false information floating around.[3] Both claims have plausibility and flaws and highlight how vulnerable people currently are to fake news.

During a pandemic, misinformation and fake news can be a matter of life and death for some people. With news such as coronavirus was caused by the 5G networktaking hydroxychloroquine as a miracle cure, or believing coronavirus is a political hoax that will magically go away by the end of the year, questions arise around the amount of liberty that one should have in a speech that has a potentially negative effect on vulnerable people. Mudde sees the dilemma of managing freedom of speech in a pandemic. He explains the urgent need to restrict false information in media to protect frontline workers from becoming silenced while preventing a fall into the trap of giving political leaders “dictatorial powers” of taking away too much freedom of speech, such as in Hungary.[4] Mudde did not explain how to achieve such balance, but he emphasized that people must fight against leaders using authoritarian measures in response to the pandemic.

The current state of the fake news phenomenon highlights the ongoing debate of how to balance freedom of speech and censorship more than before. Governments and media outlets are experimenting with how to responsibly minimize the dire influence of false information. Alcock proposes tackling fake news similarly to the way allies tackled Nazi propaganda during the Second World War: forewarning, counterpropaganda, ‘focus on truth,’ and critical thinking. Forewarning is about detecting the misinformation before it spreads; counterpropaganda is about attacking false claims directly; ‘focus on truth’ consistently provides accurate information to gain trust amongst the population, and critical thinking is “encouraging the critical analysis of information.”[5] Borchers proposes more news literacy in the education system, following PEN America’s recommendation, with a competent warning system that would prevent fraudulent news purveyors from profiting.[6]

Despite all the debates and discussions, the pandemic ravages humanity, and the fake news phenomenon continues to deceive some people. The challenge of sustaining freedom of speech and containing fake news continues, and time will tell whether we have succeeded in finding this balance. Scholars have shown different approaches to tackling the fake news phenomenon. Now, in the midst of a pandemic where people’s lives are at stake, the solution for this freedom of speech and fake news containment dilemma has become more urgent.

Muslim anchors of media perform a tough job.
"They have to act according to the definition of the situation, which is shaped by the policy of the news channel and also by the dominant narrative. They may be acting because India’s audience, which has been attuned and habituated to communal content, wants them to act this way."
For these anchors, the TV studio is a stage and as spoken by Jaques in As you Like ItAll the world’s a stage/ And all the men and women merely players/ They have their exits and their entrances; /And one man in his time plays many parts. Muslim anchors in Hindi news channels live this Shakespearean dichotomy every day.https://theprint.in/opinion/hindi-news-anchors-rubika-liyaquat-sayeed-ansari-muslim-leaders-bjp/420683/

Yogi on CAA and NRC on News Nation of Deepak Chaurasia explains CAA and is not against the constitution. Mahatma Gandhi announced in 1947 that minorities are always welcome to India as and when. Chaurasia asks that Muslims in India feel insecure and think that they may be told to leave India. Yogi says that nowhere is it mentioned. Shaheen Bagh is polluted to break India. It is not a justified movement. Sharjil is knowingly freed by the government. According to Yogi, it is not the movement Shaheen Bagh is creating a law and order problem. Modi has given all facilities to everyone.

NDTV informs that CAA and NRC are creating problems. CAA to be withdrawn, and there is no need for NRC or NPR. Christians think that it will affect all over India. Many people are living on the streets. They do not have any papers. So it will not be useful to any person. It is a Hindu Agenda of the BJP. We are opposing it. In NRC, religion shall also be mentioned. No one should divide based on religion. What about Sri Lanka refugees? CAA does not consider Sri Lanka, with whom we have a close relationship. The European parliament has condemned CAA and NRC.

Stability of tenure of employee is more important. It brings accountability. Technology can minimize corruption. Start from the top to curtail corruption. Party needs money. दान माँगना बुरा नहीं है हमारी स्नस्कृति में (10:31). But asking that you increase rate and 10% for the party is wrong. He talked about गरीबी रेखा (11:57).

Is Kashmir Bosnia of India or Pakistan?

“Is Kashmir Bosnia of India or Pakistan?” 
Change is the law of nature. New history is being written every day. Ultra-rights are raising their heads around the World. Subcontinents and religions are no exception. Yugoslavia disintegrated. India and
Pakistan is reaching a trigger point of a mass movement to disintegration. After Iraq, Syria, Libya,
Afghanistan, East European countries, Indonesia, the Indian subcontinent are ready for a demographic,
geographic, and political change. Can democracy save India’s disintegration due to cultural conflict?
Kashmir may be the Bosnia of Pakistan but not of India, the largest democracy in the World. Time
May prove my thesis.
India is a democratic country. Pakistan is stumbling towards becoming a democratic country. Pakistan is supporting terrorists’ activities to destabilize Afghanistan, Iran, India, and Kashmir. Imran Khan,
The Prime Minister of Pakistan called all Muslims to unite and support the Kashmir liberation struggle,
like the Bosnian Muslims asked for NATO’s help to safeguard Muslims during the internal conflict in
Yugoslavia. So the question arises Is Kashmir the Bosnia of India or Pakistan? Will Kashmir choose
Democracy or terrorism?
Many parallels can be drawn between Yugoslavia and India, Pakistan, and Kashmir.  Kashmir is a
Muslim majority like Bosnia and occupied by India and Pakistan. India is a secular democracy.
Pakistan’s democracy is controlled by the military. 
Yugoslavia was not democratic and remained a dictatorship of the proletariat. After Tito’s death in
1980, the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, many nation-states of Yugoslavia wanted to join the European
Union. Yugoslavia collapsed due to many causes such as economic issues, ancient ethnic hatred,
nationalism, cultural issues, international politics, the role of personality, the fall of empires. Perceptions and actors play an important part in history. Was it due to Serbian national myths around aggression?
And genocide? Was it due to the Islamic culture of Bosnia? Of course, but, again, it is an academic discussion.
India and Pakistan fought wars to occupy Kashmir in 1947-48, 1965, 1971, and 1999. The
demarcation of the line of January 1949 changed to the Line of Control in 1972 with minor variations on

Taj Mahal Hotel (2008). Hindus were compelled to migrate from Kashmir. Many Hindus were killed,
property occupied, women, raped by terrorists, who supported some Mosques and were far-right
Radicals of Islam. Pakistan always denied its support of these terrorists. 
On 5 August 2019, India abrogated Article 370 and annexed Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh as
Union Territory of India. Pakistan is now openly calling all Muslims to help Kashmiris liberate
and support Jihadis against India (Video enclosed). Hindus and Buddhists are supporting
the abrogation of article 370, but Kashmiri Muslims are not supporting this. Constitution experts of India are divided on this legality. The Soura area of the Kashmir valley is revolting against a curfew imposed by India. Imran Khan requested all Muslims to come out and stand at nominated places around the
World on each Friday between 12 and 12:30 hrs. Imran Khan told all Muslims that Bosnian Muslims.
They were helped by NATO. Some foreign forces shall help to divide India into small national states. Is
Pakistan preparing for nuclear war?
India is already divided on nation states' ideology which divides a population-based on language and ethnicity. Far-Right Radicals are sowing seeds for this division around the world. Many Muslims are living in states where religion is not Islam, like Canada, United States, China, Britain, India,
Myanmar. Will this be a Huntington war around the world? Will Kashmir and Imran Khan ignite the
Issue? The trigger may be the Kashmir conflict by Imran. History is writing new chapters. Universal Declaration of Human Rights and interference by Veto Powers may change the direction of war between India and Pakistan on Kashmir. But Modi hai to Mumkin Hai. 
Religious groups:  (BBC news) Muslims account for 95% in the Kashmir valley and are against a
Hindu majority parliament of India. Does change in the demography (particularly Muslim) reshape
The geography and culture of the state? Are we moving towards Huntington’s war around the world?
Against Muslims? 
Many questions still remain unanswered. Social unregulated media (Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp) is
Also, spreading fake news in India and Pakistan to divide society and create unrest in Bosnia. 

History may prove that democracy can survive conflicts better than dictatorships. This means Kashmir
shall be the Bosnia of Pakistan and not of India; though Muslims of the world supporting Pakistan may
