Narendra Modi reignites Communal Violence Bill debate with letter to PM

The Gujarat Chief Minister has joined chief ministers of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Odisha in opposition to the bill which they allege is a violation of India’s federal structure.


“Communal Violence Bill is ill-conceived, poorly drafted & a recipe for disaster! Timing of Communal Violence Bill is suspicious. Political considerations & votebank politics rather than genuine concerns are guiding it,” he (modi) tweeted.

Communal Violence Bill is in clear violation of India's federal structure. Centre is busy forming laws on matters that are in the State List. If a Legislation has to be implemented by the States, should it not be legislated by the States?”

“If implemented, Communal Violence Bill would fragment society & increase violence. It will have results opposite of the stated objective. Urged PM to seek wider consultation with the states & various stakeholders of the Bill before proceeding any further on a Bill like this,” he added.


He questioned the hurry of the Centre to introduce the bill in the Parliament, saying that such an attempt before the Lok Sabha elections is suspicious and is driven by votebank politics rather than genuine concern for preventing communal violence.

Good to know Indian lobby in U.S is getting powerful.

U.S. Evangelicals, Indian Expats Teamed Up to Push Through Modi Visa Ban

In March 2005, the United States denied a visa to Gujarat’s chief minister, Narendra Modi, now the Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate in next year’s Indian elections. The visa was denied because of Mr. Modi’s alleged role in the 2002 riots in Gujarat that left more than 1,000 dead, most of them Muslims. But it came about from a highly unusual coalition made up of Indian-born activists, evangelical Christians, Jewish leaders and Republican members of Congress concerned about religious freedom around the globe.

I had a front-row seat to these events as they unfolded. I worked in Washington. D.C., from 2003 to 2011, mostly at Amnesty International and in the United States Congress, and I was a part of the campaign to deny Mr. Modi a visa.

In 1996, Nina Shea, the director of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, organized a summit sponsored by the National Association of Evangelicals, an umbrella group that represents 42,000 Evangelical Churches. At the conclusion of the event, the delegates pledged their collective efforts to “take appropriate action to combat the intolerable religious persecution now victimizing fellow believers and those of other faiths.”

The timing was perfect. Two years earlier, Republicans had taken a majority of seats in the House of Representatives for the first time since 1952, and the new batch of Republican Congress members were eager to see that protection of Christians be a central part of United States foreign policy.

“I wanted to turn this around, to make our focus broader,” Ms. Gaer said in an interview. This chance came in February 2002 when she learned about the riots in Gujarat, India. “We learned about the riots in real time. We had people on staff who kept telling us we need to do something,” Ms. Gaer said.

Ms. Gaer tried to arrange an official commission trip to India to survey the damage caused by the 2002 riots but was denied permission to enter India.

Instead, the commission decided to hold a hearing in Washington in June 2002. Ms. Gaer was “shocked” by the findings at the hearing. “I can’t forget what I heard that day,” Ms. Gaer said.

Mr. Wolf was the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which served as the basis to deny Narendra Modi a United States visa.Alex Wong/Getty Images Congressman Frank Wolf speaking at a campaign rally in Springfield, Virginia, on Aug. 17, 2012. Mr. Wolf was the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which served as the basis to deny Narendra Modi a United States visa.

In the fall of 2002, an Indian-born, Washington-based evangelical Christian named John Prabhudoss led a delegation to riot-affected Ahmedabad that included two Republican congressmen, Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania and Mr. Wolf. Another person on the trip was Raju Rajagopal, an Indian-born retired health professional based in Berkeley, Calif.

The report also did something else — it created a network of activists across the United States who could be quickly mobilized when they learned of Mr. Modi’s planned visit to the country in 2005.

“When we heard about Modi’s visit, we were ready,” Mr. Rajagopal said. “Actually, we had been ready and waiting for Modi’s visit for a few years.”

In early 2005, Mr. Prabhudoss learned that the Asian American Hotel Owners Association was sponsoring a conference in south Florida in late March 2005 and had invited then-Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, the TV talk show host Chris Matthews and Mr. Modi. The association was created in 1989 as a trade group for hotel owners in the United States, and today there are 10,000 members representing 22,000 hotels. The group’s chairman, Nash Patel, said at the time that 98 percent of the group’s members had roots in Gujarat.

Soon after Mr. Modi’s United States visit was announced, 41 South Asian groups across the country came together to form the Coalition Against Genocide. On Feb. 24, 2005, a letter organized by the group was signed by over 100 professors and sent to the hotel association, asking them to rescind Mr. Modi’s invitation. Another pressure group flooded Mr. Matthews with letters.

“We needed a Democrat so the White House could say there is bipartisan support against Modi,” Mr. Prabhudoss said. He hired two professional Democratic lobbyists to assist him with his efforts, for an amount Mr. Prabhudoss declined to disclose.

Mr. Prabhudoss found an ally in John Conyers Jr., a Democrat from Michigan who is the longest serving African-American member of Congress and has a large Arab and Muslim constituency.

Mr. Modi called the visa denial in 2005 “an attack on Indian sovereignty” and raised the question, “Will India also consider what America has done in Iraq when it processes visa applications of Americans coming to India?”

Despite the success in denying Mr. Modi a United States visa, disillusionment quickly set in for Mr. Rajagopal, the retired California businessman who accompanied Mr. Prabhudoss to Gujarat in 2002.

“The frustrating thing was that the visa denial was probably the only thing really dealt a blow to Modi,” he said. “I just wish it had been brought about by a large, secular coalition. I am not so sure that is true. The thing that made a difference was the right-wing evangelical support.

Mr. Prabhudoss acknowledged that evangelical support played a big part but said that Mr. Modi was denied a visa for other reasons as well.

“Back then, we were working without any opposition. It was incredible, really,” Mr. Prabhudoss said. “The Modi supporters were there, but they sat that one out. And back then, the Indian lobby was not powerful like they are today. You could speak against Modi and there were no political consequences. Today, it is a completely different story.”

Joseph Grieboski, the founder of the Institute on Religion and Public Policy in Virginia, who also was deeply involved in trying to block Mr. Modi’s visit, said that the mood has shifted now.

“When the U.S. denied Mr. Modi a visa in 2005, it was like the U.S. denying a visa to the governor of Iowa — no offense to Gujarat,” he said. “The U.S. did not see it as a big deal. And back then, it seemed clear to everyone in this town that Modi was involved in the riots. Now the picture is fuzzier, and many are intrigued by Modi.”

While Republicans led the opposition to Mr. Modi’s visa in 2005, there are now Republicans among Mr. Modi’s strongest supporters. When the Tea Party candidate Joe Walsh campaigned in Illinois for Congress, he promised he would push the United States to grant Mr. Modi a visa. (He lost to his Democratic challenger, Tammy Duckworth.)

In March, three Republicans members of Congress visited Mr. Modi in Gujarat, including Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state. The trip for Ms. McMorris Rodgers and her husband cost $15,000 and was paid for by the co-founder of the National Indian American Public Policy Institute, Shalli Kumar, a supporter of Mr. Modi based in Chicago.

What has shifted, however, is that the Indian lobby is much more powerful today than it previously was. “There is no Modi lobby,” said a former colleague of mine from Amnesty International, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter. “There is an Indian lobby, and they do not want to hear any criticism of India, whether it be on the Delhi rape case or on the Modi issue. They just want to hear good things about India.”

“I know it is a cliché,” the official said, “but our talking point on India has always been, ‘India and the U.S. are both democracies that share the same values.’ You cannot really apply that statement to Modi. If Modi becomes prime minister, I guess we will have to come up with something new to say.”

These congressites are snakes.They must really think Muslims are stupid to believe the rationale behind this communal violence bill. Fix the existing laws and reform the police and security forces to protect all communities equally. They are trying to pit muslims vs hindus and mask all the economic and internal security decay happening in the country.

Article 370: Narendra Modi challenged by Omar Abdullah for a debate

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday threw a challenge to BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, saying he was ready for a debate on Article 370 "anytime, anywhere".

"If they want a debate on Article 370 with me, let them tell me where and when they want to talk about it. Even if they want to hold the debate in Ahmedabad, we are ready for the debate anytime," Omar said at public rally here.

That article about Visa denial is a way by US to perhaps tell us- unwashed heathen masses in India- the issue was because of the Indian NGO's. It had nothing to do with GOTUS.

Modi needs to kick the USG where it hurts the most whenever he does get a chance.

Question is why BJP cadre don't like Sushma whereas those who HATE BJP love her ?

There's something cooking:

NaMo should send VCD of speech to USA for that is more than total worth of ignorant people's coalitions and campaigns. Or even written speech in international letter mail is good enough.

Another point to note role of EJs ie sepation of state and religion going for another toss within USA. As also Republican candidates doing their dabbling and routines. Also note labeling arbitrararily Indian lobby. These people know nothing more than creating a mess of ideas, especially separation of state and religion.

USG is doing a downhill ski just like our friends, the NLI during Kargil. They know that Modi will become PM, and they are trying to reduce the damage from their monumental stupidity. There is no reason to ban and insult a Democratically 4 time elected Chief Minister when you bring in terrorists and dictators to the White House and honor them.

I hope Modi tells them to stuff their visa where the sun don't shine.

One does not have to *kick USG where it hurts*. The very fact that Modi becomes PM will hurt USG in the right places. Just right now the US HC went to Guj. did not get an audience with CM and was doing ribbon cutting in a muslim school. Same situation when Vajpayee sent the Aus. HC to visit Appu Ghar and not grant an audience. Or the same situation where Jaswant Singh met a chineese delegation and announced Flight to China via Vietnam.

The point is paraphrasing somebody - diplomacy is war sans weapons.

As far as I know Modi had not applied for a visa since 2005 and it has not been denied since then. The articles that keeps appearing every month are just paid news by congress and leftists, to project as if Modi is somehow unwanted by the world powers. It can rile up a few uninformeds who jump up and down they hear the news. US of A is not stupid enough to take such a public stand now, when it clearly knows that it will come back to haunt them when Modi becomes the PM.

Boss, I am against that also. But at least in this case alternate routes would be available.

Not so when the running goes on for hours on end and a major road cannot be crossed just so that some corporate can get brownie points with yuppie crowd. These are the exact same people who would be voting for AAP come time for elections. A subset of these disconnected with aam boys are managing Rahul Gandhi's campaign armed with laptops, latest smartphones they got with them when they RTIed after their Ivy lelague and Oxbridge eduvacation. That is the kind of thinking which pushes "form over function" branding BS with flashy PPTgiri. We all have seen the disaster RG's rallies were.

First of all, this denial of visa by the US has nothing to do with 2002. That is just the pathetic psecs piggy backing 2002 on what is a completely different issue - and that is the Guj Government legislation on prevention of conversion.

Vinod Mehta stating as an ardent supporter of Congress and pseudosecularist, Congress is finished. They all see the writing on the wall. Modi must sharpen his knife. He has no time to waste when he is crowned. Amit Shah will probably be HM.

If ever, Modi should debate with someone with more street credentials but not belonging to the Delhi-inner network. Not unlike his interview to Siddiqui, bypassing NDTV, CNNIBN, AajTak, etc.

did modi ever say it is 1:1 debate on A370?.. besides it is not modi to decide, but people at large.. this is where we need khaan type democracy in place - policy based voting... let people decide

- 6 months of discussion time
- web site enabled
- news paper distributed
- finalize on the options
- vote on A370 by end of year 2014.

--

btw, policy based voting democracy gives opportunity for web or mobile based secured voting process, that can have paper trail. let people decide about contentious policies. phuck all politicians.

I don't understand the assumption by these clowns that Mr. Modi is eager to make a beeline for the US. Perhaps there is an assumption in the US based upon the servile eagerness of previous and current Indian politicians to visit Washington.

When Mr. Modi and the party are in power in New Delhi, they should make it clear that there is no interest in visiting the US. Obama or whoever else needs to visit India (and apply for a visa) if there is to be a dialogue.

Furthermore, there needs to be a specific policy on which US citizens we allow to visit India.

Best Wishes,

KL

All Modi has to do is he will discuss it with all prime ministerial candidate of CongI, since they hold the Nehru-Maino mantle. Is OA a prime-ministerial candidate? If not, CongIs should make him one and then there will be discussion.

OA indeed walked into a trap. However media will paint it as "blow to Modi".

Second Modi said, let us at least have a debate. He did not say, debate with me. So if OA is ready for debate - let him/NC first carry the debate in his own assembly and meanwhile CongIs can start the debate in parliament or let Bhajpa have a go at the debate in parliament.

Again this may be painted as "blow to Modi"., but the fact is a debate would have started on something which NC/CongIs hold sacrosanct "no debate" option.

Question is why BJP cadre don't like Sushma whereas those who HATE BJP love her ?



Is it not just a circle?? Given the reaction on BRF to any praise of anyone seen against NaMo or BJP - depending on context - one can easily get the above situation. Praise Sushma and ardent Modi guys suspect she is up to something.

IF Modi comes to power, may be the first big-clouted country he visits will signal the general alignment . MMS was off to USA ( & 8 times after that ) in Nov(?) 2004 after getting elected in May 2004.

wouldn't that be a minefield for Modi with the main beneficiary being the Abdullahs, becoming a Ghazi against Hindu fundamentalist?

If ever, Modi should debate with someone with more street credentials but not belonging to the Delhi-inner network. Not unlike his interview to Siddiqui, bypassing NDTV, CNNIBN, AajTak, etc.


Modi should send Meenakshi Lekhi to the debate. She will dissect him and have him for lunch :rotfl:

Modi's first visit should be to Japan!
