The Indian minorities are played with everyday. And they are very willing to play along with people who use them for their own goals without ever giving these minorities anything in return but an impoverished life.
The growth of regional parties – specifically like BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) – has been on the back of such ignorance amongst the minorities. And Mayawati is the leader of all these idiotic loonies.
India and US are engaged over a Nuclear Deal. Some say it is good for India and some say it is bad. The Left Communist parties obviously take their orders from China and oppose it. The less said about them the better – such an insult they are to any intelligent Indian! These useless “my heart beats for minorities” regional parties have found an innovative – but shameless – way to oppose the deal.
“The deal is being done at the cost of cheaper gas from Iran and Muslims are vehemently opposed to it,”
So says this female – Mayawati. Now, let us understand what she is telling the Muslims in India –
That – Iran can send cheaper gas to India… and Iran is a Muslim country… and by going for Nuclear technology .. which is in some distant way an alternative way to produce energy as opposed to gas (Natural Gas, mind you.. NOT Petrol!) – and SO A COMPETITION to Gas.. India has BETRAYED GAS and GONE for NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY… therefore.. it follows.. India has BETRAYED Iran.. and SO Muslims.. and so Indian Muslims.. by going to Non Muslims.. since Muslims obviously have nothing to do with Nuclear Technology!!
Do you see the Great nonsense? Do you see the mischief?
I am not for or against the deal.. but if one has to argue against it .. at the very least it should not be something from the LUNATIC fringe!! At the very least we should have a better level of debate?
It just pains to go through the news from politicians in India. And honestly, there will be enough Mullahs who will go around telling their constituency that since Mayawati is “pro-Muslim” and she says that Nuclear deal is “anti-Muslim”, Muslims should oppose it!
The hillarious part of Mayawati’s arguments is that most of the Muslims in UP are Sunnis. Iran is HARD-CORE Shia. So hard-core that it is backing up the Shias in Iraq against the Sunni minority and waging a bloody battle. That rivalry even in South Asia (as shown by shootings in Shia mosques in Pakistan) is pretty strong.
This is the irony. Lack of education is the bane of Indian democracy. Left has milked it to no end. I mean it has made the most progressive state of Bengal into a junk-yard where instead of innovation one can only see hypocrisy and verbosity.. instead of high art and literature and profoundness of Tagore and Vivekananda, one can only witness the base-ness of Buddhadeb or a Jyoti Basu. Such is the mental slavery.
Where is Indian intellect going to?
