How the RSS Network’s Incessant Generation of Lies Has Actively Damaged Our Brains – By Alishan Jafri and Apoorvanand

It is not our cognitive limits that prevent us from comprehending the truth. Active damage is being done to our cognition by the incessant generation of lies; a virtual carpet bombing of lies. This shatters our cognitive faculty, which in turn distorts our affective abilities…. when you willingly and knowingly generate lies, you make it very clear that you are simply not interested in truth at all. You inflict a mental and psychological disease on society….

We, however, have the luxury to speak from the point where Premji left. For instance, Premji could have shared examples of what lies can do. He could have started from his city, which aspired to be a city of the future. He could have shown what the lies are doing to it, how they are tearing it apart, how they are hollowing it at a time when it needs to remain together, strong.

MP Tejasvi Surya barged into the COVID war room of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s south zone and read out the names of the Muslims working there. Why were so many Muslims there? Was it a madrasa, was the question. This led to the summary suspension of 17 workers. Not only that, they were taken to a police station and an inquiry was constituted against them. His lies, his history of lies has led to an atmosphere of suspicion and hatred against Muslims.
