Ahead of 2024 polls, Congress begins demonising ‘Jai Shri Ram’, equates it to ‘Hail Hitler’2 min read
On Wednesday (March 15), West Bengal Congress chief Kamruzzaman Choudhary courted controversy by evaluating the Hindu non secular chant of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to ‘Hail Hitler.’
While reacting to a tweet by BJP spokesperson Keya Ghosh about Hindus making ready for celebrating the Ram Navami competition within the state, a rattled Chowdhury dubbed the sacred chant a ‘war cry.’
“Jai Sri Ram is the new “Hail Hitler”. A slogan of delight has been diminished to an intimidating conflict cry,” he had claimed. The archive of the tweet will be accessed right here.

The vicious try was to hyperlink ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to ‘Hail Hilter’, a Nazi chant devoted to eulogising Adolf Hitler who oversaw the killing of over 6 million Jews.
Tweet by Congress chief Kamruzzaman Choudhary
At the time of writing, it had been over 40 hours for the reason that tweet was posted by the Congress chief. Despite mocking the feelings of Hindus, Kamruzzaman Choudhary or the Congress excessive command didn’t hassle to supply an apology or delete the contentious tweet.
The concerted try and demonise ‘Jai Shri Ram’
It should be talked about that the slogan ‘Jai Shri Ram’ means ‘victory to Lord Rama’ and doesn’t demonise any faith, not to mention name for conflict or subjugation of adherents of different Faiths. However, it has been subjugated to a vitriolic marketing campaign for the previous a number of years for political positive aspects.
This consists of raking up of instances, falsely alleging weaponisation of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to commit crimes towards ‘religious minorities’ in India. OpIndia has documented how the sacred Hindu chat was defamed by falsely linking it to prison incidents.
Ahead of the 2024 polls, the Congress ecosystem is leaving no stone unturned in slandering the Hindu religion. It is conscious that there can be no penalties for its bigotry as Hindus consider in peaceable co-existence. Lord Ram has been a deity who has been revered throughout the pantheon of Hinduism for ages.
For Congress chief Kamruzzaman Choudhary to primarily cut back the mantra of Hindu reverence of Shri Ram to a ‘war cry’ (as carried out earlier by the likes of BBC and Wikipedia) isn’t just motivated by appeasement politics but in addition geared toward demonising the religion of the Hindu group.
It is now a transparent indicator that such makes an attempt to tarnish the ‘Jai Shri Ram’ chant as a supposedly hate-filled slogan by the Congress ecosystem will proceed unabated within the run-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
