Re: Indo-UK News and Discussion - April 2013

Not just defense sector, there should be total ban on purchasing anything from UK. I was strongly opposed to Tata's purchase of Land Rover / Jaguar. If they were itching to invest in an English speaking white country, I think US would have been a better option to invest in. I recall that Hummer was ...

Re: Islamic Britain & The Compromised Western Civilization

UQ invited Muslims into UQ. Muslims were welcomed with open arms. So who are we (SDREs) to say that Muslims are not good for UQ? It is the bonafide subjects of UQ who know what is good and what is not good for UQ. I think it is ridiculous for us SDREs to imply that we know what is best for UQ. Curre...

Re: Islamic Britain & The Compromised Western Civilization

In my opinion, it is naive to state that U.Q. does not understand Islam. U.Q. understands Islam very well. I cannot think of any other nation which has used Islam more effectively than U.Q. to further its interest.
