US for the cause of Secularism and Ignorance

Posted in Politics, WTF by Manish on May 3, 2009

Believe it or not, US is the flagbearer of secularism for the whole world. As you might be assuming them to be quite better than the Indian counterparts, the truth is somewhat else.

Remember Narendra Modi was denied Visa to attend the World Gujarati meet. The guy got what he wanted. Good press is no press and bad press is good press. The visa denial news spread like wildfire and Modi was again in news. Half of the people expressed happiness and the other half expresses shock and grief. Well, this is not what am trying to point out.

The US as usual tries to showcase itself as the torch-bearer of humanity, secularism blah blah (list is quite long). I still wonder they even know who Modi actually is? The annual report of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) released on Friday, 1st of May. To the utter surprise Narendra Modi who is  currently the  CM of Gujarat is mentioned as

The Governor Nahendra Modi

in page 14 of this pdf

Oh comeon, this shows completely that you dont even know his correct name in the first place. Secondly, he is not a Governor. Can you please move over your ignorance that a state can be lead only by a governor as in your country?

I can still remember when the US media(Western media broadly) says Indian Secretory for Defence ____ (insert the current name) has arrived in our country. They don’t know that we *do* have a post of Secretary but he is not what you think. Thirdly, when will those fucktards stop referring the Indian Central Government as Federal Government?
