Wild Dreams

The Telegraph, 05.05.2005

Since when did a staunch Marxist like Ashok Mitra develop his fascination for civil liberties? It is hypocritical to talk about individual rights when communist governments around the world have been such pioneers of tyranny. Mitra’s shameless defence of Pakistan and Bangladesh in matters of cross-border infiltration and terrorism is a blot on how educated Indians perceive national security. Vocally anti-American, Mitra naturally brings in the CIA. But was it the CIA that killed BSF officer Jeevan Kumar? And what about the 2001 attack on the Indian parliament?

Mitra forgets that India is materially not much better off than Bangladesh. There is no way it can accept the constant inflow of economically useless immigrants. We have had millions of illegal immigrants, most of them not the Hindus India promised to house. It also seems curious how Mitra totally ignores the plight of the law-abiding, tax-paying citizens of India.

  2. Sorry for the confusion Tom, but this is just a letter I sent to The Telegraph on one of the editorials they published recently. I use this blog as a one point collection of all my published works in English.

    The author of the editorial was sympathising with the millions of illegal immigrants that have come into India from neighbouring Bangladesh ever since 1947. I was just pointing out some of the fallacies in his article.

    The commies can be seen simply as proxies for the Chicoms. They hum the Chinese tune all the time at the expense of India. Death to these traitors!
