NEW DELHI — The government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the Hindutva ecosystem are systematically brainwashing and misleading the majority community to secure political benefits, several recent videos of popular YouTuber Dhruv Rathee have claimed.

The videos of Rathee, who has 18.8 million subscribers, get millions of views on his YouTube channel. Apart from YouTube, these videos have been watched millions of times on other social media platforms.

The latest Rathee video of around 30 minutes shows how selective outrage over the killing of women by their partners is weaponised by BJP supporters to spread hatred toward Muslims.

In the video titled “Reality of Mera Abdul|The Hindu Muslim Brainwash Agenda,” the YouTuber pointed out that if a Muslim man is accused of killing a Hindu woman, the incident is highlighted to suggest that all Muslims are brutal and indulge in immoral things. However, when a Hindu man is accused of killing a Muslim woman or Hindu woman, these incidents are not highlighted to portray all Hindu men similarly.

Rathee offered several examples of selective outrage by the BJP supporters. Hindutva supporters launched a massive campaign when Fayaz was accused of killing Neha in Karnataka. But there was no such outrage when Rukhsana was killed by Pradeep in Bengaluru, even though both incidents occurred only a few days apart.

Rathee also said that it is far-fetched that the BJP supporters will demand justice for women from other communities. They don’t demand justice for even Hindu women when the culprit has connections with the BJP leaders. A rally was organised for the convict when former BJP MLA was found guilty of rape in 2019. This year, three members of the BJP IT Cell – Abhishek Chouhan, Saksham Patel and Kunal Pandey – were accused of raping a woman at Banaras Hindu University (BHU). But there was no outrage over the incident, Rathee pointed out.

Rathee also noted that Muslim organisations issued statements to condemn the incident when there was an outrage against the killing of a woman by a Muslim. However, this information was not shared by BJP supporters on social media.

“Their intentions are only to brainwash you. They want to instil fear in your hearts so that you are scared of Muslims and you vote for Modi out of fear,” asserted Rathee.

In his video, Rathee also fact-checked the claims made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his controversial speech in Rajasthan. Modi had called Muslims “infiltrators” and “the people who have many children”. Rathee pointed out that it was wrong to suggest that Muslims give birth to many children as the fertility rate data suggests that the population rate is lower in areas and states having a higher literacy rate. 

In less than 24 hours, this video of Rathee received 7.1 million views.

Last week, Rathee made a video to show how millions of Indians are brainwashed through WhatsApp messages forwarded by the BJP’s IT cell. Rathee argued that a WhatsApp mafia is being run from behind the scene to proselytise the general people.

Apart from that, Rathee had made videos on the electoral bonds scam, the pharma file of the electoral bonds, the unemployment crisis, the jailing of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the flourishing of dictatorship under the Modi government.
