While, it does bring disgrace to the country when a senior journalist is manhandled in a far away nation by an Indian living abroad, even if the so called journalist is Rajdeep Sardesai ji – The man well-known for abusing selected politicians (whom he dislikes), provoking netizens and painting the entire religious community (Hindus) as barbaric and uncivilized.
He and his wife Sagarika Ghose over the years have used disgraceful terms for anybody and everybody. They called Lord Ram an encroacher, Dr. Abdul Kalam as Bomb Daddy and often addressed ex Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as Blue Turban (Neeli Pagdi). Not to forget they address our country men as ‘Ugly Indian Males’. ‘Internet Hindus’ coined by Ghose was infamously used by the husband-wife duo on several ocassions.
@sagarikaghose ‘Blue Turban’ .. that is a unique construct in recent times for the PM … !!

Internet Hindus are like swarms of bees. they come swarming after you at any mention of Modi Muslims or Pakistan! — Sagarika Ghose (@sagarikaghose) January 24, 2010
In February 2014, Sardesai made a derogatory remark against Modi when he compared him to his dog out of nowhere. This was not the first time he did that. His wife earlier categorized Hindu and Modi with ‘corruption’ and ‘sleaze.’
while Namo travels the country, my Nemo needs to be taken for a walk in the park! Different folks, different priorities! Enjoy the weekend. — Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) February 8, 2014
Soon Roonie Screwwala alerted him on his stand,
And Mr. Sardesai got a an equally worst reaction for his bad tweet. Soon #YoRajdeepAntiNational started trending!!!
Sardesaiji then had to come up with a new tweet after seeing the Twitteratis rage
If you remember, Mr. Sardesai had once called Dawood as patriotic. Expect the tirade to continue till Rajdeep tries to glorify people like Dawood and pass derogatory comments on people’s favorite politician. But, when their action back bites them, they very well know how to play the “victim card”
For the last 24 hours, have received vile abuse on twitter, my family targeted, death threats on phone! Ugly face of the future. — Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) February 9, 2014
Lastly, how can we miss his 2012 tweet which read something like this –
tonight time to say f off to those who call us ‘paid media’. we are journalists, not sensationalists or elitists. gnight. — Rajdeep Sardesai (@sardesairajdeep) February 4, 2012
The war of Rajdeep Sardesai and the Internet Hindus along with the Ugly Indian Males (as they like to call) is not new. It has always been a two sided game. Twitter records show, Rajdeep and his wife as initiators at various instances. In fact, they have a history of using abusive language over the years as mentioned above – So who do we blame now???
