New Delhi, 30 May 2015: Rebutt to IndiaTomorrow.net story  from Yogendra Yadav, leader of Swaraj Abhiyan, Yogender Yadav condemned in tough words the attack on innocent Musims by a organised roiter in Atali Village on 25th May in Faridabad district of Haryana.
Media is our friend at times and not so friendly at times.
Yet Our media friends also will agree with this post. We request just and fair reporting.
This note is to respect dignity of  journalism.

All who know Yogender Yadav closely know it well, he is man for safety and security and prosperity of each citizen of India. The terms vote bank politics and Hindu Muslim factors do not cross his process of thought.  This is true to all who stand for for and with Swaraj Abhiyan.  Yogender considers each citizen is responsibility of each of us. Communal ism in all forms need to be condemned. Yadav does not need any certificate from any one to prove his credentials, he is a simple human being lovers he sensitive to the pains of human beings he cares he dedicates his live for the betterment of the people of the nation and fight rampant evils hatched and nurtured by our decades politics systems in rush to weigh all good and not so good in the balance of vote bank politics.

Yogendra Yadav’s email to the nation. The media that covered was selective it skipped the inputs he gave and also tried to mislead the readers by not reporting his statement he gave to the web portal. The news man skipped this bite which Yogender Yadav gave that is not in good taste and is not in right spirit in fair journalism. … This is the content the media skipped Yogender wrote to media person “incidents of this kind are happening all over and often go unreported or unnoticed. This is the fourth of fifth incident of this kind in Haryana since Modi government came to power, the most serious one being in Tauru last year. Modi government claims that there have been no big communal riots since it took over. What has happened is not that communalism has abated, but that its model has shifted. Crowd-sourcing of majority communalism is the new model. Secular politics has to change its strategy to combat this new model of communal violence.” 
 
 Below is the full text of the letter which I received from Yogender Yadav which is self explanatory and is reflection of a great individual who is respected and regarded as hope for upholding the truth and right form of leading a dignified public life. All credit to Yogedern Yadav to have penned his pain.
The letter as it was received.

Dear friends,
I am amazed and shocked at this kind of irresponsible journalism. I sincerely hope that you would now circulate my response as widely as you have circulated this mischievous report. The simple fact is that we at Swaraj Abhiyan were among the first organisations to react to this incident and did much more than simply issue a routine statement of condemnation. The sequence is events is as follows:
25th: the incident happened in the evening; I was in Ahmedabad where the police had locked our event venue. In the midst of all that no one informed me about it
26th morning: I was still in Ahmedabad when Prashant ji sent me an SMS about this incident and we discussed what should be done. I immediately requested two of our Swaraj Abhiyan colleagues Mr Rakesh Jain and Mr Ramzan Chowdhary (member of our National Working Committee) to rush to the spot and ascertain the facts of the situation. They reached around noon and were there till late evening. Ramzan bhai was with the victims in the thana and Rakesh bhai visited the burnt houses in the village. They gave the factual situation and said that by now the situation was under control; the victims were under police protection. We had request our teams nearby to arrange for food for the victims, but Ramzan bhai reported that it had been arranged locally. They said the media was not reporting this incident in a big way. Wider publicity had the risk of provoking a chain reaction that could lead to further attacks on the minorities. So, Prashant ji and I decided not to go public at that time.
27th: we had a day long meeting on our Kisan abhiyan in NOIDA. Ramzan bhai came for it and reported that the situation was returning to normal. We discussed about setting up our first Aman Committee, something we want to do all over the country, in this village. In the evening I got calls from our volunteers saying that another set of families have been attacked. I requested Ramzan bhai to check this fact. He verified that it was indeed true and I immediately spoke to the Commissioner of Police, Mr Subhash Yadav, to register my concern and demand swift action.
28th: By now the incident was being reported in the media. Mohd Naushad Khan of Radiance Viewsweekly asked me for my reaction and this is what I wrote back at 1130 in the morning: “… incidents of this kind are happening all over and often go unreported or unnoticed. This is the fourth of fifth incident of this kind in Haryana since Modi government came to power, the most serious one being in Tauru last year. Modi government claims that there have been no big communal riots since it took over. What has happened is not that communalism has abated, but that its model has shifted. Crowd-sourcing of majority communalism is the new model. Secular politics has to change its strategy to combat this new model of communal violence.”
Is this what you call keeping mum? Why did this news report not even ask me for a reaction before running a story on me? Why does this report not mention my role in the communal violence at Tauru last year? Why does this report not talk about the fact that I travelled there during the curfew and was pushed and abused by RSS workers? Why does this report not talk about what I said on minorities and Mr Modi in Ahmedabad on the 25th itself? 
Is this journalism? I leave it for you to judge.
Yours
Yogendra
