It’s entirely a silly gesture to be euphoric about Obama’s achievement. I see no reason as to why we Indians hail him as a great leader when it’s pretty much clear that his role like his predecessors is too keep alive the imperialistic designs of US, to keep expanding the hegemony of US. India needs to remember well that for presidents of United States the “interests” matter more. This explains why the so-called War on Terror is designed more to sustain the ambitions of United States rather than making world devoid of dangerous terrorist. It explains why the violation of human rights in killing of Osama is justified but when India wishes to be straight forward in wiping out the terrorists’ hideouts in Pakistan, the reluctance of United States comes on the surface in form of mild and strong reactions.
The strange thing is that these hideouts started bothering United States once they started affecting the designs of America. On the contrary, our long desire to declare Pakistan a terrorist state always met a rough response on the part of American policymakers. They kept offering aides and donations on one pretext or another to Pakistan, which it kept using against us by spending them on anti-India forces. I must ask is Mr. Obama in a state of coma when it comes to identification of terrorists operating in India with overt and covert support of Pakistan? The irony is that despite our diplomatic efforts in light of so many evidences, we are asked by the US administration to abide by the International laws. The US is always in denial mode while estimating the real face of Islamic terrorism in India. The moment we take strict actions in Jammu and Kashmir, the American clouts in Amnesty International are the first ones to raise eyebrows. However, “revenge” for Mr.Obama is justified as Osama led to rise of many American kids who grew up in absence of their parents.
Curiously, the same logic is not applicable if India on the same grounds take strict against its enemies inside and outside. Is Mr.Obama’s administration unaware of role of Pakistan in 26/11 attacks? However, as a humiliating gesture it asked India to submit proofs and other than delivering customary warning to Pakistan we got nothing. I am really surprised that we chose to turn a blind eye to WikiLeaks, which brought in open the real face of American policymakers. It treats India as “a self-appointed frontrunner for a permanent UN security council seat.”
The revelations only confirm our suspicion that it treats us a fool that can be fooled all the time with sweet doses of assurances and talks that refer to strengthening ties with India. The same strengthening of ties does not include elimination of terrorists mentioned in the list of dangerous terrorists prepared by India. It appears that these terrorists are serving the cause of humanity in the eyes of Obama.
I refuse to hail Obama as a great leader until he displays same level of honesty in dealing with Pakistan. I refuse to treat him as custodian of human values in the wake of his continued rejection of ground realities pertaining to large scale of migration of Kashmiri Pandits and Tibetans. As long as a troubled status quo remains in Tibet and Kashmir, I am in no mood to pay attention to achievements of Obama much less acknowledge him as a wonderful leader. Obama is as selective in approach as his predecessors. He can provide support to smaller nations in Middle East but it refuses to support in explicit terms the refugees belonging to Kashmir and Tibet. Kashmiri Pandits and Tibetans are non-existent for him. They and their kids are living in heaven for Mr.Obama.
