From Amir Khan to Nandan Nilekani!!! The weird connection of ‘The Wire’ with Indian celebrities

‘The Wire’ is on fire and it may turn into ashes by this Deepawali. From the day of its inception, it was apparent that ‘The Wire’ was inclined to a particular political party. It always showed keen interest in praising the bizarre statements of Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party. Meanwhile it was condemning each and every milestone achievements of Modi govt. The hate took them so far that they even planted a fake story about Amit Shah’s son, Jay Shah.

But this may end up ‘The Wire’ paying Rs 100 crore as Jay Shah has filed a defamation case against the writer, editor and the owners of ‘The Wire’.

Who supports this kind of journalism? Who promotes this anti-Hindu, anti-BJP agenda news portal ‘The Wire’? What they want to achieve by posting biased and agenda based articles? To know all these questions, we need to know who founder and funded ‘The Wire’.

Who are the founders of this website?

• Siddharth Varadarajan is the co-founder of this website. Formerly he was with ‘The Hindu’ which was recently in news after it projected a saviour as a molester in the Mumbai stampede. After he left ‘The Hindu’, he started his own media named ‘The Wire’.

His wife is Nandini Sundar who was booked along with 10 others for the murder of a tribal in the insurgency-hit Sukma district of Chhattisgarh.

• M.K. Venu is another co-founder of ‘The Wire’ who was caught in the controversial Neera Radia Tapes.• Sidharth Bhatia is also a co-founder of ‘The Wire’.

Let us have a look at the core funders of this website and then you will get an answer for their hatred against certain organisations and their ideologies.

‘The Independent and Public-Spirited’ (IPS) Media Foundation which has funded ‘The Wire’ claims that it promotes they work towards spreading public spirited and socially impactful journalism. But what they promoted was pure lies about Amit Shah and his son.

The trustees of the foundation are 

• Dr Ramachandra Guha, against whom a case was filed for giving his own Gauri Lankesh case.

• Mr Ashish Dhawan

• Mr CB Bhave was the former Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). But the CBI had instituted a preliminary enquiry (PE) against this person for alleged irregularities in granting sanction to MCX Stock Exchange (MCX-EX).

• Dr Rukhmini Banerjee

• Mr T N Ninan

It should also be noted that even Amir Khan is a donor in IPSMF. Let me remind you that Amir Khan is the same individual who said that India is intolerant according to his wife.

Who else funded ‘The Wire’?

You will be shocked to know that few billionaires of India, Nandan Nilekani, Rohan Narayana Murthy, Azim Premji have also funded this website. Nandan Nilekani has also funded Shekhar Gupta’s ‘The Print’. Nandan Nilekani is a co founder of Infosys and a politician from Indian National Congress.
