disclaimer: i am just forwarding this message without verifying it.
there's been a slew of messages about this. maybe there's something to it, although the usual pseudo-secular, dynasty-sucking-up-to EL media has clammed up about it. on the other hand, would even rahul, not exactly a genius, do something as self-destructive as this, especially immediately after the white world has anointed him crown-prince?
but then, he did apparently get caught trying to smuggle $200,000 into the us a few years ago. and he did (does?) have a colombian drug-cartel girlfriend. maybe his handlers didnt tell him what to do.
i have been thinking of obama as a manchurian candidate, but rahul would be the perfect manchurian candidate, wouldn't he? (anybody seen the original film? i saw the recent one, which was not bad, not great.)
kumar asks a good question -- where are the women's rights banshees, shabana azmi, teesta setalvad, et al? or is it ok if a woman is allegedly raped by the dynasty scion? i guess since the woman is only a hindu, it's ok.

Is there any way to campaign for this poor girl's rights? Can we press the UN or any women's rights groups to condemn this crime? Just because he's a member of the most powerful clan in India doesn'r mean he should be allowed to get away with this crime.
