The setting up of supporttharoor.org is the democratic right of either Sebastian Fuhrmann or his employers, especially if they are sitting in far-off Germany.
It also seems to be fulfilling a need of those who actually think that “an educated, world-renowned, sophisticated and pro-active minister was shown the door for not much fault.” This fact is even recognised by ET, which has been indulging surprisingly in some old-time-journalistic muckraking on the IPL issue and the Shashi Tharoor fiasco.
Two things worth noting from this is the increasing use of the Web as a political campaign tool even in India. The other is the continued dominance of elite voice in this apparent egalitarian new media.
