  Skewed Priorities & Treacherous Behavior

via The Hindu:

Over a lakh Muslims participated in a rally at the Azad Maidan in Mumbai to protest the three-day visit of U.S. President George Bush. Several organisations, including the Communist Party of India, the Communist Gadar Party, the National Railway Workers' Union, the Jamaat-e-Islami-Hind, the All India Ulema Council and the Mumbai Aman Committee, participated in the mammoth rally. The speakers touched on a gamut of issues — from Salman Rushdie, Taslima Nasreen and M. F. Husain's paintings to the Israel-Palestine conflict, Afghanistan and Iraq crisis.

No doubt all noble causes worthy of lending a voice. In other news, owing to severe shortage of generation capacity, Mumbai will be facing electric power cuts of up to 20% this summer. The fact that the nuclear deal will greatly help to reduce this gap won't matter to these folks with skewed priorities in life. Now, over to the communist bastion Kolkata:

Anil Biswas, State secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and senior Polit Bureau member, said Congressmen who did not favour the Centre's U.S. tilt in foreign policy issues "were increasingly being isolated."

He wondered whether the clinching of the nuclear accord was a U.S. attempt to use India and other countries in Asia as strategic partners against China in Washington's campaign against communism."We (the Left parties) will not allow this to happen... this is part of an imperialist design to isolate China."

The Leftist parties whom we dubbed as Chinese Puppets in India are unabashedly rooting for their masters. Isolate China eh? It is China which is lobbying hard among other NSG countries to scuttle the deal and isolate India. They time and again prove where their real loyalty lies.

Via the Associated Press:

Anger at President Bush swept through parts of India on Friday as protesters burned his effigy and carried posters of Osama bin Laden. Three people were killed in clashes, and 18 were injured.

While most Indians look favorably upon the United States, and though the protests have not been as large as expected, anti-Bush demonstrations have been held in various Indian cities by communists and Muslim groups during his visit.

Violence erupted in the city of Lucknow when dozens of armed Muslims tried to force Hindu shop owners to shut their stores to protest Bush's visit, said Senior Superintendent of Police Ashutosh Pandey. The two sides argued, exchanged blows, and finally shot at each other, killing a Muslim teenager, Pandey said.

Idiots. The entire thing could have been considered an acceptable nuisance as part of democratic rights guaranteed by the Constitution of India had there not been loss of life or property. In the long run, such barbaric acts does not augur good for the well-being of the Indian democracy itself. Previous idiocy here and here.

CN,

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) had applauded the Chinese nuclear tests in the 1960s. It opposed the Indian nuclear tests in 1998. Double standards indeed.

The Communist Party of India had opposed M.K. Gandhi's "Quit India Movement" as the Soviet Union and Britain were then allied in a common effort in fighting the Nazis. But when the Soviets had earlier entered into a pact with Nazi Germany, it was Ok to fight the Brits!

The Marxist loyalty is to their ideological bretheren, not to their country.
