The British news agency The Telegraph has recently printed article accusing Rashmi Mishra Founder Inspiring Indian Women (IIW) terming her as divisive for aggravating tensions between Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities.
The recent outrageous article by British publication ‘The Daily Telegraph’ depicting Rashmi Mishra IIW as notorious Hindutva (Hindu Extremist) figure spreading hatred against communities just because she was part of a protest outside Guardian for spreading fake biased anti Bharat , anti Hindu narrative is yet another example of how the western media can stoop to any low to muffle Hindu voices without any strong evidence. The Article clearly looks like a personal vendetta and lopsided effort and is character assasination of a Hindu Naree who simply stood for India.
HJS investigation clearly points out that the Violence in Leicester by Muslim men who had forcibly removed flag from a Hindu temple had nothing to do with RSS or Hindutva. The Jehadi radicalized mobs threw Bottles and missiles at the Holy place of worship and flags were burnt. The protest organized by a group of hurt Hindus was against biased reporting carried by BBC and The Guardian regularly against the government in India. They had strongly objected to biased reporting of recent violence in Leicester between Hindus and Muslims where the role of radicalized Jehadi ultra extremist elements was downplayed. Nothing was done or planned to go to Leicester. Just a comment on a whatsapp group of 165 plus people was blown out of proportion as if Hindus are responsible for continued tensions. Patrick Sawer has lost all senses and he finds no one else to talk about but just Rashmi. He has been paid to write it by anti India forces and he has resorted to yellow journalism.
Rashmi Mishra, an academician by profession for the last 25 years, has been a popular figure among the British community for her public and community service. She runs IIW (Inspiring Indian Women) a community platform for activities that brings together global and local innovators to generate ideas, build networks for action, and work together to ensure lasting educational as well as social change. The registered, Not for Profit entity (IIW) is a global organization with a reach of 50,000 plus on social media platforms. The organisation has carried out innumerable activities to bring together women from all over the world on one platform and work towards bigger goals. Get wider ideas and network with ladies worldwide to work towards upliftment and creating awareness towards social causes. The Charity work of IIW has spanned across multiple domains including helping stranded people during the COVID times providing with groceries, medicine, protective masks, gloves, sanitizers at their doorstep. IIW also provided Elderly, vulnerable people with accommodations with counseling and organizing various webinar links, meditation and chanting links. IIW was constantly in touch with the Indian Embassy in London to help the stranded Indian students in London.
Rashmi Mishra is an amazing, inspiring, selfless, dedicated and committed to her mission. She is one of the most popular and respected personalities in the Indian community. With her costumes, speech, lifestyle, mannerism she is an ideal representative of a cultured and empowered Indian woman. It is needless to say that she loves India and Indians with the bottom of her heart. She is a public ambassador of Indians in Britain.
The tone of the article in ‘The Telegraph’ The tone is very accusatory and makes bold brash baseless statements throughout, without any evidence to support such statements and defamatory claims. The protests organised to date have had no direct connection with Dr Chris Allen’s enquiry, Leicester City Council nor Leicester University as claimed in the article. The mention of WhatsApp conversation about further protests and marches being planned in Leicester has no evidence of this and it takes more than a WhatsApp conversation to organise a protest. The reporter goes on to mention that instead of dividing communities, Ms Mishra and the community should work to unite society. The tweet on two years old Honourable MP Tan Dhesi was misinterpreted and being blown out of context with the agenda to harm the reputation of Rashmi Mishra and IIW.
The fabricated and malicious accusations in ‘The Telegraph‘ article has the potential to cause great harm and friction in communities who are still looking to find answers. As evident the Telegraph are publishing concocted stories that sell to get eyeballs on online print papers, encouraging people to subscribe to the Telegraph to read the rest of the article without thinking about the repercussions. This article proves ‘The Telegraph’ is practising cheap journalism and is deliberately stoking and provoking tensions among the communities with the potential to cause loss of life and property.
The article mentions the rise of Hindutva sentiment and imported Hindu nationalism in Britain since 2014 and blames far-right ideology promoting hatred towards all non-Hindu religious minorities and Muslims in particular. The biased reporting in the article reflects that is part of global conspiracy by the Islamist radicals based in Pakistan to paint Hindutva as the fastest growing Islamophobic threat in the United Kingdom. The article paints Hindus to be a threat to the United Kingdom and is Hinduphobic in nature.
The Editor of this article Patrick Sawer (Senior News Reporter) in ‘The Telegraph’ seems to be holding biased and prejudiced beliefs against the British Indian Hindu community and Rashmi Mishra in particular. The article on Rashmi Mishra and IIW is an attack on empowered Indian women who are striving to make the United Kingdom and world a better place by being a living bridge connecting women from various countries and faiths celebrating
people and recognising people’s talents making the World a better place for everyone. This is a prime example of community unity.
Patrick Sawer should not misuse his respectable position and collude with freelancer working with ABP Television to plant fabricated stories against the respectable lady from the Indian community and reframe it in the best interest of humanity.
