US professor deported for 'political activism' in Valley

Even as the J&K government said today that US academic Prof Richard
Shapiro was not on its watchlist, it has emerged that the Centre
decided to deport him from the Indira Gandhi International Airport on
charges of continued "political activism in the state while on a
tourist visa".

Sources said the government decided to take action against Shapiro,
who held a tourist visa, because of his partner Angana Chatterji's
involvement with the International People's Tribunal on Human Rights
and Justice in Kashmir and her association with the Jammu and Kashmir
Coalition for Civil Society (JKCCS).

Chatterji was travelling with Shapiro when he was denied entry.

Sources said the professor "was misusing his tourist visa to visit J&K
where he was conducting activities not in line with the purpose for
which the visa was issued".

On Monday, Shapiro was sent back from New Delhi airport when he was on
his way to Kashmir with Chatterji, who is also an anthropology
professor and co-convener of the human rights tribunal. Last year, the
tribunal had come up with an extensive report on mass graves in
Kashmir, saying "2,900 unidentified persons were buried in these
graves after being killed by security forces".

"We have no information about his (Shapiro's) deportation. He was not
on our watchlist," said Senior Superintendent of Police Javid Riyaz.
"We didn't deport him. He was deported by the Immigration
authorities".

When contacted, the press section of the US embassy in New Delhi
declined to comment, saying "we have no information about the issue".

"This is a serious issue. Whether you call it eviction or deportation,
you can't separate him (Shapiro) from his family. I am his family,"
said Chatterji, who is a US citizen of Indian origin. "This puts
across an ugly image of India".

Chatterji said Shapiro was stopped after initially being allowed to
enter the country. "When we arrived at the airport, they stamped his
(Shapiro's) passport for entry permit. But when I went to them, they
detained me. Then they called him again and put a cancel stamp on his
papers," said Chatterji.

"When I asked them if this was deportation, or if there were any
charges against him, they said no. They said that he is not to be
allowed in India. They didn't give any reasons," said Chatterji.

When asked why Shapiro had been deported, Foreigners Regional
Registration Officer, Delhi, Ajay Chaudhry said he had no knowledge
about the same. "I have no idea," he said.

At last, *someone* in India displayed some spine, even if it
were a bureaucrat at the Delhi airport. I applaud their action. It would have been rather appropriate to let Angana Chatterjee & her boyfriend spend some detention time for a few days in one of Delhi's filthy jails. It is very lamentable that GOI is ignoring Susan Arundhati Roy's sedition on the other hand. In other news, looks like the Razakar Jihadi
MP from Hyderabad, Asaduddin Owaisi, Shabana's man Javed Akthar et al were in Detroit, Michigan (Dearborn??) to attend some "Muslim Indian American" convention where they indulged in uninhibited sedition and anti-national propaganda. Anything goes under the Obama-Biden dispensation - Even Osama Bin Laden could legitimately acquire a tourist visa. Jihadi scum like Owaisi deserve to be stripped at the airport and thrown into detention at Guantanamo.
