RE: Visa issue of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF)
When a humanrights activist said that the Nandigram incident was being raised at the UN and other international forums, Gopalkrishna Gandhi – Mahatma Gandhi's grand son – the West Bengal governor said: "We must have faith in our own system and the judiciary. We are a responsible democracy and we should deal with a crisis ourselves".
Self-styled Indian Christians 'leaders' like Prabhudoss, Joseph Dsouza, Sajan George and the ilk are commission agents of their foreign masters - USCIRF. They will not hesitate to betray our country for a fistful of dollars. They are the 21st century version of Judas who betrayed his Master, Jesus of Nazareth, for thirty pieces of silver

The United States of America must uphold the International Religious Freedom Act of 1988 and condemn nations with unchecked religious discrimination and persecution. By denying visas for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), India has clearly shown that they have all sorts of ugliness to hide! This embarrassing move highlights India's fake secularism and hypocrisy of the highest order. Imagine the power India could wield politically and socially if it was a true secular democracy...
A true secular nation welcomes all faiths with open arms. In the U.S. there are no restrictions on Hindus or followers of any other religion for that matter. The multiple faiths that live freely under one flag only strengthens the nation. Every human being has an innate right to practice their religion freely without fear of discrimination or violence. It isn't uncommon to see Chris and Krishna flying fighter jets together with Abdul to defend the American interest because in the United States of America there is no high and low, all are Americans PERIOD.
Shame on caste India,
The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom USCIRF has called on the State Department to deny visitor's visa to Gujarat CM/Governor Narender Modi; when he has not even applied for it. It is a common knowledge that Gov. Modi has not shown any inclination to visit America leave aside applying for a visitor's visa since 2005.
USCIRF's communication Director Judith Ingram is planning to write to Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to deny visa to Gov. Modi is a joke; where was she when quasi criminal, possible mass murderer Ehud Olmert the Prime Minister of Israel visited USA on June 4, 2008? It is a shame when it comes to Israel/Jews; every American Politician can drop their pant or skirt before the blink of an eye and start crawling for them.
Ingram is urging the State Department to reaffirm its past decision to deny tourist visa to Gujarat Gov. Narender Modi again without his applying for it. In 2005 it was Pro Israeli USCIRF who successfully persuaded the State Department to deny visa for Modi despite pressure from Indian Government.
USCIRF Chair Felice D Gaer who is also Director of Jacob Blaustein Institute for Advancement of Human rights of the American Jew Committee said, "Official bodies of Indian government have found Modi is culpable for the egregious and systemic human rights abuse wrought against thousands of Indian Muslims."
Then USCIRF communication specialist Bridget Kustin is also in favor of the keeping the Visa denial for Modi in force on the basis of their recommendation for denial made in 2005 holding Modi responsible for 2,000 Muslims killed, thousands raped and over 200,000 displaced.
It looks like Ingram, Gaer, Kustin etc the Israeli lobbyist control USCIRF and have double standards one for a rouge country Israel of over 5 million Jews ruled by quasi criminals & religious fanatics occupying another country Palestine for the last 40 years and another for India a Secular Democratic country of 1.1 Billion practicing all major religions of the world including Judaism.
Unlike Israel; India peacefully co-exists with its neighbor's like Pakistan, Bangala Desh etc. created on Indian Land as Muslim countries. India still has more than 200 million Muslim citizens enjoying more rights, liberty & religious freedom than majority community as well as any Muslim country around the world. India has never attacked any country where as Israel has colonized Palestine for more than 40 years using American money and brutal force. Then history tells us Israel was created on Palestinian land with American help in 1948 by taking over 78% of Palestinian Land when Jewish population was less than 30% and their land holding around 7% in undivided Palestine.
Narender Modi is a Democratically elected head of a State Gujarat with 50 million people from a Secular Democratic country of more than 1.1 billion India representing major world faiths. Gujarat has more Muslims than the total population of Jew only rouge country Israel. Narender Modi is not at all directly or indirectly involved in the 2002 riots neither he has given orders to start the riots targeting Muslims. On the other hand a quasi criminal Ehud Olmert is directly involved in killing the civilian population including infants in Palestine by ordering its Military to Bomb practically every day occupied territories of Palestine under Israel's illegal occupation. He is responsible for treating more than 3.5 million Palestine as slaves rather worst than animals.
I refuse to accept a person who can vote in the election of a foreign country and can serve in the Army of a foreign country as American. American Jews are allowed in Israel to vote and serve in their Army and more than 100,000 American Jews are living in Israel.
Israeli controlled USCIRF has no credibility when it can not stop a possible mass murderer & quasi criminal Israeli Ehud Olmert from entering America. It is a Racial discrimination and character assassination to Narender Modi by denying tourist visa in 2005 and again raising baseless allegations to deny visa that too when he has not applied for it.
Denying visa to Narendra Modi is highly shameful. In fact Govt. of India must take this issue seriously. Self respecting Indians especially Gujratis busy in making money only in America; with voting right in America should make it clear that they stand in support of Modi. They must confront President for the insult and injustice done to Narendra Madi by Israeli lobbyist running USCIRF.
