George Bush's Trip To India

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh,

So Daas was watching CNN a few days ago and came across the press conference of President Bush and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. They were discussing how America and India are repairing their relationship and expanding it for future business endeavours.

What came across to me was that George Bush kept saying ‘it is in our interest to have relations with India’. This was said time and time again. Basically the only reason America wants to do business with India is because there is lots of money to be made in a country with the worlds second largest (soon to be largest) population. We all pretty much know money talks in the global environment and a lot of stuff can be overlooked by countries and leaders if the financial gain is large enough. This leads in to my point.

George Bush stated in the press conference that India is the worlds largest democracy and is a great example for the world to follow of having many religions and cultures living together. What a ridiculous statement to make, the whole world knows (governments) of India’s human rights violations. Amensty International amongst many other organizations have reported how brutal India’s state sponsored terrorism is not only against Sikhs but also against Muslims and Christians. The US House of Representatives has even documented India’s treatment of Sikhs in Punjab. After all this, Bush still goes on stage in front of the world and says India is an example that the world should follow. How ridiculous is this.

Bush was sent a letter by the Council of Khalistan about this issue, so he can not claim ignorance. America also has the most sophisticated and advance machinery in place to keep track of situations in foreign countries.

At the end of the day, America wants to strengthen relations with India to exploit its vast economic potential, and to get at this goal they are more than willing to overlook the Human Rights violations and state sponsored terrorism that has and is continuing to occur in India. The world seems to work on self-serving goals where principles are sacrificed and things overlooked in the name of making money.

Below is a presentation which includes footage from the US House of Representatives, please take out a few minutes to view it.
