Knowing Sadanand Dhume – Nastiness Ad Nauseum?

September 2, 2012

Sadanand Dhume (SD) writing in American makes a pitch that the Indians in the US should vote Republican Party. The shallowness and factual short comings in his position are being highlighted here. One can also get a glimpse of the agenda SD types push.   SD writes

And in general, Republicans have greater clarity about the threats democracies such as India face from the rise of an authoritarian China and the resurgence of radical Islam.

Dhume is deliberately muted on xn fascist evangelism and its threat to democracy. Apart from subverting state apparatus under Sonia Maino, Christian evangelist initiatives have seen an over drive converting naïve natives, and driving a malicious demographic offensive in large parts of India. Insidious evangelist conversion is a zero sum game and remains a greater threat than radical Islam in undermining native Indian well-being – as far as scale goes, today, Islamic radicalism is restricted to radicalizing Muslims; Christian evangelist initiatives go deeper in terms of their impact and subversion. Influential republicans have tended to back evangelist agenda. While Christians encourage Hindu versus Muslim narrative, christians at least since 1500s, have played a significant if not dominant role in shaping India’s destiny.

Others still may simply prefer the gaudy identity politics of the Democratic Party to the GOP’s quieter acceptance of all as Americans.

Juvenile attempt by Dhume here to hide Republican party’s “Christian” identity politics?

The overwhelming majority of Indian-Americans are economic refugees who fled the wreckage of Nehruvian socialism for greener pastures.

Dhume deliberately omits here the enabler of economic abyss – nehurivan sickularism. And that Indian poverty was an outcome of Islamic and much more significantly xn imperialisms.

That both Jindal and Haley tend to wear their conversion to Christianity on their sleeves obliquely sends the message to some that the largely Hindu and Sikh Indian-American community may not be entirely welcome.

Dhume has resorted to malicious obfuscation here. Nimrata Randhawa was not a typical Christian convert. She was a proud Sikh. Even her marriage followed Sikh procedures. Reality of pervasive Christian intolerance in polity and smear innuendos made the proud Sikh reluctantly acknowledge herself as a Christian.

By nominating a Mormon to run for the presidency, the GOP has punctured the myth that it belongs only to fundamentalist Christians.

Irrelevant straw man pitch by Dhume here. GOP nominating a Mormon is different from GOP nominating a Rajiv Malhotra. While some Christians may consider Mormon to be less/un Christian, most Hindus/Sikhs, let alone Christians, would see a Mormon with their belief in bible and christ as Christian enough.

Moreover, no reasonable person can gainsay the fact that America’s prosperity and proud tradition of religious liberty owe their existence to a society built on a bedrock of Judeo-Christian values.

Dhume’s gloves are out. Prosperity and Liberty as outcomes of xn values is sophistry at it nastiest. Dhume skates on thin ice here and falls flat. Dhume uses “gainsay” instead of “deny”.  Did he think subconsciously that his charlatan-giri here would not get noticed? A reasonable person just needs to consider the following questions to unplug Dhume’s chicanery here: Isn’t islam a uber-judeo-xn ethic? Will judeo-xn values take America to a medieval hell-hole? And has liberation theology got nothing to do with judeo-xn values? Was there biblical justification of segregation and slavery and sending natives to settlements? “Judeo-xn values” sophistry pushed by the pretentious is a stinking lemon if there was one particularly in the light of christian resistance to Science and the efforts to stop and undermine teaching of evolution. Readers should notice the similarity between Dhume gloves and Amartya Sen take on xn schools.

Closing Comments: Binary stereotypes and sophistry – small/large govt, pro/anti choice, and ‘bipartisanship is good’ type narratives pushed in the US have limited utility and often help camouflage reality. This piece is not to value judge Romney or Obama. Jimmy Carter et al are as “Christian” as they come. Evangelist goals received strong support in Clinton administration as well. An American, including the Hindu would be well off making their voting decision based on the ideas presented, track record of the candidates, influential party stakeholders and chose the better option. Christian extremism remains a factor in the US polity and undermining that would mean good for the Americans. Fox TV/Sarah Palin type “family values” is euphemism for “christian values”; while Sean Hannity etc try and work up a frenzy on “Big Government”, what they censor is their position for “Big God”, a slippery path with a track record of causing incalculable harm to humanity, no different from Shariah hell-holes.

Tailpiece: There is a small section of motivated and pretentious HINOs often with links to dubious moneybags that parrot out of context xn west republican/conservative lines for India– secular/center right etc. Most of this agenda peddlers are quintessential sepoy types of another variety and often anti-Hindu. The gullible Hindu is the audience for this chicanery and disinformation.

No Justice for Deaf and Mute Anil Kumar? Sexual Abuse Victim

December 26, 2009

In May 2009, ZIM had referred to the ‘mute’ response of Indian Media on one of biggest crimes to ever hit India – serial child abuse.

Recent cacophony pertaining to Ruchika Girotra’s persecution by a SPS Rathore made ZIM revisit what remains a criminal suppression of truth by Indian Government Authorities and media. An Australian Christian Missionary responsible for crimes of humongous magnitude is out on bail.

Full Video of Brother Paul Alan’s gut wrenching behavior can be viewed here. Brother Paul Alan was someone who escaped justice in Western Australia for fraud and operates in India as a Catholic Christian Missionary and a respected Doctor.  He led Mother Teresa’s “Missionaries of Charity’ Mass. Among other things he set up his own Missionary enterprise “New Hope”, solicited funds through advertorials.

Some of Brother Alan’s actions pertain to practicing medicine and worse doing surgeries on gullible poor, all without having a medical license.

But this was nothing compared to what you will read now. For three full decades, mind you, not just a day or a week or a month,  for three full decades, Brother Paul Alan sexually abused and assaulted hundreds of teenage children across eastern India in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh.

One child, 14 year old Anil Kumar, same age as Ruchika, who was deaf and mute but not dumb and who lived with Brother Paul Alan committed suicide (We do not know if it was a murder).

Deaf, Mute boy Anil Kumar:

It is not as if the news is not in the public domain. Sally Sara, ABC’s Indian Correspondent did outstanding investigative journalism to dig out the details on the outlaw.

As Sally Sara captures, Brother Paul Alan has been released on bail multiple times, doing more evil every time and Prosecution non existent.

Cover up in India has been massive. Government, the Media, So called Social Rights Activists all went  “Omerta” on this one.

There are many in the Government who need to provide answers on this one:

Sonia Gandhi, Ruling

Congress Party President                                                                                        

Rahul Gandhi, Ruling Congress                             Party General Secretary

Manmohan Singh,        Prime Minister

Navin Patnaik Chief                                                                                             Minister of Orissa

P Chidambaram, Home                                 Minister, India

YSR Reddy, Chief Minister, Andhra Pradesh
