The hypocrisy of secular Indian Media and its biased reporting

A Muslim man in India’s financial capital and biggest city Mumbai held a 27-year-old engineer girl captive and sexually assaulted her for two-and-a-half months. He also tonsured her head after she refused to marry him and convert to Islam. He showed her videos of evangelist Zakir Naik. He showed her mobile phone videos of him sexually assaulting her and started to blackmail her. Initially, he kept her confined to his home  during which he repeatedly raped her and also beat her with leather belt. He took away her debit card and withdrew Rs. 40,000 from her account.This happened in India, not in Pakistan!

   And this happens very often in India, to women at the hands of Muslims. Can anyone imagine a Hindu man in Pakistan doing this to a Muslim woman? Or for that matter, a Hindu man doing this to a Muslim woman even in India? Had such an incident happened to a Muslim woman at the hand of a Hindu man in India, the national media would have outraged, followed by the world media. But since the religions of the rapist and victim were inconvenient, the media almost totally suppressed this case. The media also reported this case only as if it was a mere sex crime, whereas it was a case of fanaticism, trying to forcibly convert the girl to Islam and show her propaganda videos of Zakir Naik. Pathetic whitewashing of Muslim fanaticism by the media.

How do we know she was a Hindu who he tried to forcibly convert? From these sentences in the report of The Hindustan Times, which is an extremely anti-Hindu and pro-Muslim newspaper:

“The man used the video to confine the 25-year-old woman in his house for 10 days where he raped her multiple times, shot and re-shot several videos of the rape and physically and mentally tortured her to change her religion. [This reads as ‘Forcibly convert her to Islam’, the courage of Leftist-minded ‘secularist’ newspapers like The Hindustan Times fails when it comes to explicitly stating this fact.] The victim met the accused in March on a dating site. After the two became friends, the accused invited the woman to his apartment in a plush society on June 15 to celebrate a festival. [This festival was Eid, which the newspaper conveniently does not mention, but The Times of India mentioned it.]

   The accused sedated the woman by offering her a sweet dish. He then raped her and shot nude photos and videos of her. The next day, he threatened her to accept his demands failing which he would upload the photos and videos on social media.The accused claimed that he was in love with the woman and wanted to marry her. The accused also forced her to watch videos of controversial evangelists [This reads ‘Zakir Naik’, which The Hindustan Times cannot gather courage to mention] and beat her if she did not follow the verses. The accused said he had two passports, including a Pakistani passport [An Indian having two passports is a big crime and the other passport being of Pakistan which is India’s enemy country is a huge offence], and showed her photo of a man seated on a chair surrounded by weapons such as bombs, police said. The accused even made the woman write suicide notes and also took her signatures on blank papers.”

The report of The Times of India, an extremely anti-Hindu and pro-Muslim newspaper of 4 September 2018 was:

   “27-year-old held captive, raped for 2 months

   Mumbai : A 27-year-old engineer was held captive and sexually assaulted for two-and-a-half months by an Andheri [Andheri is a locality in Mumbai, India’s financial capital] resident, who also tonsured her head after she refused to marry him. The woman finally managed to escape to a relative’s house in Pune [Pune is a big Indian city, 150 km away from Mumbai] last week and lodged a complaint, after which the accused, Sayyed Amir Hussain alias Seroj Khan (27), was arrested from his Milat Nagar flat in Andheri (West) on Monday.

Police said the woman was drugged by the accused when she visited his home in mid June. The woman, who had shifted to the city [Mumbai] from Goa last year, had allegedly befriended Hussain through a social networking site. “When she visited Hussain’s home, he offered a sweet laced with some drugs, and sexually assaulted her. When she regained consciousness, Hussain showed her mobile phone videos of him sexually assaulting her and started to blackmail her. Initially, he kept her confined to his home till June 30, during which he repeatedly raped her and also beat her with leather belt. He took away her debit card and withdrew Rs. 40,000 from her account,” said an officer from Oshiwara police station [in Mumbai].

In her complaint, the woman said that Hussain let her off on June 30. “However, he kept following me. On July 3 called me and told me to reach his home else he would circulate the video of sexual assault on social media. He forced me to return to his home on July 3,” she said in her complaint.

According to police, Hussain asked her to marry him, but she refused. “The woman said that he would tie her up and gag her with a cloth and sexually assault her. He also threatened to sell her for flesh trade if she did not marry him. He tonsured her later,” a police officer said. According to the police, Hussain told her that he had targeted two other women similarly in the past.

On August 25, the woman managed to escape from Hussain’s home and reached a relative’s home in Pune. Her relatives then took her to Kothrud police station [in Pune]and lodged an FIR on September 1. “The case has been transferred to our counterpart at Oshiwara who are conducting further probe,” said inspector Appasaheb Shevale of Kothrud police station.

He was produced before the Andheri metropolitan court, which remanded him in police custody till September 10. Police are trying to recover the chemical used to spike the sweet given to her, besides the mobile phone in which the accused allegedly recorded the sexual assaults.

Hussain has been booked for rape (IPC section 376 ), unnatural sex/offences (section 377 ), wrongful confinement (sections 342 and 344 ), outraging modesty (354), robbery (392 ), criminal intimidation (506) and also under the IT Act.

  But in the above report The Times of India did not dare to mention that the victim woman was a Hindu, and that the rapist tried to convert her to Islam. The Hindustan Times let slip this fact with a mention that the rapist physically and mentally tortured her to change her religion. Another report of The Times of India dated 8 September 2018 was:

“Neighbours heard cries, kin knew 27-year-old Seroj Khan was raping woman

Mumbai : The sexual assault case of a 27-year-old engineer by an Andheri resident [in Mumbai] has got murkier with the police coming to know that the accused’s mother and stepbrother were in the house when he confined the woman and abused her for two months. It was the mother of the accused, Sayyed Hussain alias Seroj Khan (27), who helped the woman escape on August 25 and now, the Oshiwara police is considering making her a witness.

A source said that the mother decided to help the survivor as neighbours had started inquiring about the presence of a woman in the house and screams being heard from the flat. Though she initially denied it, some building children spotted the woman, said the police.

The police said they have found that Khan would stay at home and stepped out only rarely. “He had been threatening his mother and stepbrother too and hence, the duo never interfered in his activities,” said an officer. TOI visited Khan’s house on Tuesday and tried to speak to his mother, who opened the door. But said she will provide whatever details she has to the police.

The survivor told the police that Khan took away her mobile and she was allowed to speak to her mother only on the speaker phone in his presence. She said Khan made her sign a suicide note and five blank papers.

She told the police that she found an opportunity to escape a day after Khan’s pet cat jumped out of his first-floor flat in Millat Nagar and hit a biker. Khan rushed out with his stebrother and took the feline to a vet, who gave her painkillers and asked to get a scan done to check for fractures, the woman mentioned in her FIR.

“On August 25, when the Khan and his stepbrother took the cat for a scan, I requested his mother to let me go as my mother was unwell. She agreed and dropped me off at a bus stop in Andheri on a scooter. I went to the station and later in the night, I took a bus to Pune. I called up my sister and narrated the entire ordeal to her,” she said.

A complaint was registered in Pune on September 1 and Khan was arrested on Monday. He has been sent to police custody till September 10. The police said that they need Khan’s custody interrogate him and recover the mobile which he used to record the sexual assaults on the survivor from June 16 to August 24 at his flat. He also tonsured her when she refused to marry him, said the police.

The woman said that she and Khan met through a social networking app in March 2018 and her ordeal began a day after she went to his house on June 15 for Eid celebrations.[The Times of India somehow had the courage to mention the festival as ‘Eid’ which The Hindustan Times dared not.]

   The full report of The Hindustan Times, which tried its best to whitewash the Muslim fanaticism part and hide the fact that it was a Muslim man who tortured woman and tried to forced her to convert, was:
