the way the deities have been attacked, this is clearly a hate crime. probably committed by christist fundamentalists. this is a violation of fundamental rights.
where the heck is the USCIRF, so quick to judge other countries? what about religious freedom in the USA?
where are AID, ASHA, FOSA, FOIL, vijay prashad, biju mathew, romila thapar, witzel, farmer?
will arjun singh now get excited? of course not.
however, if a mosquito bites john dayal, the extreme bigot who is the loudest christist whiner in india, that would be branded an RSS mosquito, and he would demand that the vatican and the CIA and the USCIRF all investigate it.
btw, arjun singh is probably beside himself with joy: naushad, the kerala mohammedan whose eye was supposed to be gouged out, has been pardoned by the saudi king, and is back in kerala with both eyes intact. as for the unfortunate maniappan kutty, who was beheaded by the taliban/pakistanis while e. ahamed (foreign minister) did nothing, oh well, he was only a hindu. i am pretty certain that all the lavish promises of compensation from christist CM oommen chandy have not materialized.
basically, when a hindu or hinduism is attacked, we are supposed to take it lying down, in the interest of 'tolerance'. thus, when hindus are burnt en masse in godhra, it is 'spontaneous combustion', ie. they caught fire on their own: why, the great justice uc bandarjee can be trotted out to ratify it. but when mohammedans burn to death at best bakery, the 'spontaneous combustion' argument does not hold good.
