As India battles the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the western media outlets have unleashed a massive wave of propaganda to humiliate and discredit the country in the global media.

India has been in dire straits due to the second wave of the novel coronavirus wreaking havoc nationwide and has so far put up a brave fight against the pandemic, is also coping with a massive misinformation war initiated by the global left-liberal establishment.

Though all the foreign cricketers, including commentators and former players, have left the Covid-stricken India, barring Tim Seifert, but continue to keep India in their thoughts.

Among various Australian cricketers, who have shed light on the testing times India is going through at present, former player Matthew Hayden also penned down an emotional note for the country, in his blog. Here are few excerpts:

In a detailed post, Mathew Hayden, perhaps frustrated by the global propaganda on India by the western media, shared his “perspective” on the pandemic saying, it is “not available to those sitting thousands of miles away.”

“As it battles the alarming spread of the virus, the world media has spared no time in lambasting a country of a whopping 1.4 billion where the sheer numbers make the implementation and success of any public scheme a challenge.”

Having travelled to India over the last decade, Hayden called the Asian country his ‘spiritual home’. The left-hander also expressed his gratitude towards the people of India for showering him with love and affection.

“I have been visiting India for over a decade now and have travelled all over the country, especially Tamil Nadu which I consider my “spiritual home”. I have always had the highest respect for the leaders and public officials who are entrusted with the task of running such a diverse and vast country,” Hayden wrote in his post.

Further, sharing his opinion on the biased media coverage against India, Mathew Hayden further wrote, “I am not a data person, but of the figures I have gathered from some of the media reports are astonishing. India has already vaccinated over 160 million people (five times the population of Australia) and has been conducting 1.3 million tests a day. The point I am making is not to overlook the sheer vast numbers and the challenges associated with it.”

Anand Mahindra -- chairman of the Mahindra Group -- took notice of Hayden’s emotional post for India and expressed his adulation to the former cricketer.
