    Atrocity propaganda is a term referring to the spreading of deliberate fabrications or exaggerations about the crimes committed by an enemy, constituting a form of psychological warfare.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In 1927, Katherine Mayo wrote a viciously anti-India and anti-Hindu book “Mother India”, which portrayed Hindu society as uncivilized, barbaric and oppressive towards women and children by cherry picking incidents and twisting the facts to suit the pre-decided agenda. The purpose of this book was to show to the world that the Indian society was barbaric, which needed to be ‘civilized’ by the ‘civilized white Christian men’ of Britain and defend British rule in India. Gandhiji called this book “a gutter inspector’s report”.

    Mayo’s Mother India was perhaps one of the earliest attempts at creating Atrocity literature against India and Hinduism and this has continued to this day by various vested interests that are inimical to India and Hinduism.

    What is Atrocity Literature?

    Atrocity Literature” is a psychological warfare which the West has been using for centuries to subjugate, control, digest and ultimately destroy native cultures and civilizations. This, when supported by media can have a devastating, long lasting and sometimes permanent effect on that target civilization/culture. It is particularly dangerous, because it makes the people of the civilization, which is being targeted; believe that those who are trying to destroy them are their saviours.

    The West has successfully used this against Native Americans, African Blacks, Bharath and many other places it colonized and invaded. Christian Missionaries/Church, NGO’s, Western/Indian Academic institutions, Private Western Foundations, Human/Animal Right groups, Media, and Western Governments – have all used Atrocity Literature to undermine India.

    In “Breaking India”, Rajiv Malhotra describes Atrocity Literature as a “technical term referring to literature generated by Western interests with the explicit goal to show the target non-Western culture is committing atrocities on its own people, and hence in need of Western intervention”. The ultimate aim of Atrocity Literature that is being produced against Bharath is to demean our culture and religion, specifically Hinduism, and ultimately destroy it.

    This strategy is based on a simple fact that every society, civilization, system, religion, country, community or even artificially formed communities like labour unions will have members, who do criminal acts/atrocities. This is also true with social institutions like marriage, joint family, etc.

    So, Atrocity Literature can be used to demonize any particular community as being oppressive and discriminative towards another community, especially when such assertions have no real basis. It is difficult to understand the biases unless one goes deeper into the statistics. The worst part is, those against whom Atrocity Literature is created, tall people in the above example, themselves start believing in this narrative and a few of them will even approach those, who are trying to malign them, for help.

    They'll do the same thing here. You don't find news going somewhere where everything is fine.

    Yawn...tell that to someone who would believe such lies.

    No one here is foolish enough to believe that all those anti-India propaganda, atrocity literature, poverty porn and support for terrorism against India is 'purely unintentional'.

    One article with negative coverage can be excused as 'reporting the facts'.

    A dozen of them can still can be excused.

    But BBC's reportage on India has a constant bias, that they come up with reports bashing India on a DAILY BASIS. Whom are you trying to fool ?

    Really ? You know everything about the Indian immigration which occurred some 70 years ago ?

    Look at this British clown justifying British press' bias against Indian Space missions, and note his arrogant & condescending tone. Last time Indian Quorans countered his rants on 'Magnanimous British rule', he left crying about 'rising anglophobia' on Quora.

    Yep, he has blocked me too on Quora.

    He is a 'science fiction writer' BTW...:lol:

    Why do prominent British and American news agencies like BBC and New York Times always criticize Indian space missions?

    They don’t.

    For example, when the Mars Orbiter was successful, the achievement was reported realistically (sic) but positively in Britain’s media.

    • The Telegraph reported it as a 'triumph'.
    • The BBC report was quite restrained, mentioning that the USA, Europe and Russia already have several probes in orbit, but pointing out that India has won the regional space race with China, Japan, South Korea, etc. (maybe he deliberately ignored the poverty porn)
    • The British Interplanetary Society reported the mission as an 'outstanding feat of engineering and technology' and a 'a landmark mission for India’s evolving space programme'.
    • The Economist reported: 'A giant step for national pride' but pointed out that the craft carries few sensors, had some help from NASA and was mostly a propaganda coup. (do note that there is no bias in that)
    • The Guardian said India had entered the 'space elite', but that 'some have questioned the cost for a country still dealing with widespread hunger and poverty'. (again, there is no bias)
    This is what we call ‘balanced reporting’ (aka poverty porn) The BBC and other British media are not India’s advertising agency (nopes, they are Britain's propaganda agency) and will never produce articles that ignore issues (even if it is on a completely irrelevant context :lol:) and pretend India is some kind of paradise that is beyond criticism. Would you even want them to?

    The criticisms of the Indian space programme, such as they are, are similar to those that are made of all space missions regardless of country (e.g. that they cost a lot and the money could be spent on other things) (really ? never heard that on BBC before)

    In my opinion, it is well past time for some Indians to grow out of this desperately insecure victim mentality and stop thinking that the rest of the world is looking down on them and belittling them. (British can't stop blaming the Indians)

    So basically what I want to say is that British- educated or undereducated, liberal or conservative- are absolute SCUM. End of story.

    Inside are over 18,000 Indian-Americans, as prosperous and upstanding a diaspora as you will find from the Redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters. They are willing themselves into the kind of obedient hysteria they were meant to have left behind generations ago in the badlands of Asia, along with hunger and snakes. “Modi, Modi, Modi,” shout the massed oncologists, engineers and entrepreneurs, wearing T-Shirts bearing his face and the slogan “Unity, Action, Progress”. An Americanised Bollywood dance troupe wearing fluorescent military uniforms gyrates to Bruce Springsteen’s anthem “Born in the USA”. The cries reach a lustier pitch. “Modi, Modi, Modi!”


    WTF is this ?
