People like Owaisi always spread hatred comments and still get away. Whereas any other religion political leader that would say the same would get thrashed by the media.

    Can you provide some references to justify for "hatred comments"?

  • Because in India we have leftist media which hates Hinduism but any such acts go unreported and uncondemned by the media if dome by some Muslim community leader. Add to this we have many political parties who vie for Muslim vote bank to keep themselves in power.

The same reason why Yogi Adityanath gets to become Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh of India.

He has banned beef, is killing Muslims, and what not.

He and his henchmen are quite famous and popular for hate-speeches.


So, the answer is, because of the widespread communal attitude among general Indian citizens, and predisposition towards seeing one side of the coin (as same as this question).

  • it stems from the lack of Liberalism.

  • which stems from the lack or low-quality of education coupled with racism (casteism), and religious bigotry.

  • This has nothing to do with education. Polarization and bigotry is the same or even higher among highly educated; worldwide (Holy Inquisition was set up and run by THE most intellectual section of populace of Middle Age Europe. Anti-Semitism is far higher among university-educated leftists than average people)

  • general bad quality of two-legged primates calling themselves "homo sapient" seems an adequate explanation (we evolved with tribal loyalty and chauvinism as survival traits). AFAIR Chimps were observed exterminating neighboring troupes just for giggles (or territory).

    @anonymous: Of course you are. Anything which contradicts your set agenda is either a lie or chauvinism.

    @anonymous: It is question of truth not any newspaper. And Indian newspapers hardly reported anything on Kashmir genocide. Bye.

Indians have a tendency to be collectivist, and that makes it really easy for politicians to 'target' specific groups of people, it's all just pure pandering. They realize the ease with which you can gain power if you leverage these unified voting blocs. In this case, Owaisi sees it more beneficial for him to appease the Muslims - even if it means spewing hateful, nasty rhetoric against other groups of people, since his constituency has a clear Muslim majority.

By the way, not all media present the same narratives, there are news outlets which condemn Owaisi too, it all depends on who owns these media outlets (and their connections). If you see a news channel unreasonably criticising some personality, take a look at who owns the media, what are their motivations, what are their financial interests, who is financing them etc. Just follow the money.
