In a recent development, in the digital magazines, they said that India has been spying on their devices through a left-leaning magazine “The Wire”.
Sidharth Varadarajan, an Indian American journalist published this in his magazine “The Wire”. In a recent move, the Congress leaders also joined their hands and processions were taken by them in the Parliamentary compound.
Are their claims credible?
They are not credible, some of the people and organisations, who claim that they were snooped and go on instant outrage mode. A journalist who featured in the infamous Nira Radia tapes. Another journalist, who “reproduced” an entire interview with former defence minister Shri George Fernandes out of her imagination and claimed Leonardo Dicaprio is attending an RSS event.
An NGO associated with these organizations was closed in India for not showing the source of foreign funds.
No Evidence and just outrage: In recent times, the CAA is implemented and now, the government is busy in Covid related works and this controversy may be useful in making an ignition, a small ignition, which prepares the left-wing supporters.
India’s IT minister, on the floor of the house, has categorically denied all such charges. The allegations about Pegasus have been made multiple times before. There was no evidence, no credible factual basis earlier, and there is none now.
The newspapers have been continuing their claims and the same newspapers are failing to share the factual data.
The only response these bizarre claims deserve is ridicule, not your critical analysis. The minister has denied it. Hence, it never happened. It never happened because there is no substance to the claim. No data to support the claims and nothing to go to court with.
