Is it called hypocrisy?Of late, I have been noticing the intellectuals in various print media and television have been lamenting on lack of representation of Dalits and minorities in various fields including Government jobs, different bodies, armed forces, judiciary, etc. Some of them have gone to the extent of saying that this is the conspiracy of educated Hindus to deprive the Dalits and minorities to the 'legitimate' share of power in every walk of life.
Senior journalist Shekhar Gupta has been in the forefront of this so-called movement of giving due share of power to the Dalits and minorities. However, I have found with amusement that no Dalit or minority has been there in the newly elected Editors Guild of India. Shekhar Gupta has been elected as the President, A.K. Bhattacharya has been elected as the General Secretary and Ms. Sheela Bhatt has been elected as the Treasurer of the body of the journalists. As far as I understand, all three are so-called caste Hindus.
And there is no murmur of protest against the non-representation of Dalits and minorities in the journalists' elected body. Is it called hypocrisy?
