Union Minister and Ghaziabad MP General VK Singh Tweeting a picture on Monday, took a dig at opponents over fake news and propaganda. VK Singh narrated a story tweeting a picture of a donkey and a tiger.
VK Singh wrote that there is an interesting story of a tiger and a donkey. The donkey who says that the color of grass is blue but the tiger does not agree with him. The donkey is telling the color of the grass as blue and the tiger green. Both of them reached out to the lion for the decision. The donkey told the lion that the color of the grass is blue, the lion said yes. After this the donkey goes ahead and talks about punishing the lion. The lion ordered the tiger to remain silent for 5 years.
The tiger accepted the punishment and came to the lion and said that despite knowing that the color of the grass is green, I was punished. The lion said that discussion with these people is a waste of time and nothing else. Even after keeping all the evidence, he will not accept it.
VK Singh further wrote that in a democracy like India, there is a healthy respect for diversity of ideas. However, hype and fake news have changed the contours of public discussion.
