In a recent twitter interaction with one of my regular readers, we had this discussion if Narendra Modi should visit UK or not. My simple and instant answer was NO. I said NO because I never could find a reasonable angle that could support the upcoming visit. Even looking back at the recent past, it is close to ten years that an Indian PM visited UK. And there has to be reasons for it. Not sure if I am entirely correct in my assessment or not but the prospect of gaining anything from UK is as remotely possible as our football team making it to the world cup finals in recent future. So why waste time on a country that looks nothing beyond a beggar in a suit?
"Keep India backwards, do not let them have a better form of governance to realise their true potential, make them vote for Congress-l" - Wikileaks of BBC
“No words to describe if someone calls Holi a festival. The least that one should attach with Holi is; it is a filthy festival” - BBC editorial, March 2012
Coming back to another example of BBC's hate; as early as June this year, BBC had to close their Karachi office since they thought another of their bile in defaming India would be taken lightly. In an editorial they mentioned how MQM in Pakistan is monetarily being supported by India. For a frood BBC had nothing to present except their hate towards India. The same BBC which in an editorial in 2010 rejected squarely that ISI had no role to play in terror activities in India when there are irrefutable proofs are now equivocally corroborating India’s role in the disturbances in Pakistan without any proof. I guess this is the benchmark of BBC's version of ethical and prudent journalism. Both MEA and MQA refuted these claims. BBC was threatened of legal consequences in event of a misleading and fractured story. As usual to their filthy attitude of blame first and apologize later, they apologized and sacked their Pakistan editor and closed down Karachi office. And by the way, BBC is dragged to the court by the government of India and in all likelihood would pay a hefty fine for their misadventure without proof.
Now take a look at the latest nonsense from Guardian and wonder yourself – how such a piece could be allowed by the editorial board for publication in a prestigious (believe at your own peril) newspaper when there are no proofs to support the nonsense.
London is set to play host to one of the most dangerous politicians on the planet this week. Not that you’ll hear any such thing when Narendra Modi arrives. Instead, we’ll be reminded that India’s prime minister is the leader of a giant and dynamic economy. That he’s taking tea with the Queen and buddying up to David Cameron.
Religious extremism is not some long-faded part of Modi’s past. In 2002, while he was chief minister for Gujarat, a train carriage carrying Hindu pilgrims caught fire in the state.
