    Indian Christians, French Sikhs and Sri Lankan Tamils

    India has no business questioning French laws on Sikh headgear or expressing concern over the Sri Lankan government's action on the LTTE.

    In much the same manner, no other country has a right to pass judgement on India's handling of the violence against Christians in Orissa & Karnataka.

    Update: The original post (above) was more or less the content of a letter I sent to 'The Hindu' (Letters to the editor section) after reading the report on the resolution adopted by the 'all-party' meet in Tamil Nadu.

    Just as Pakistan has no business expressing concern over 'atrocities on Muslims in India' or European countries passing judgement on India's handling of violence against Christians in Orissa & Karnataka, India has no business questioning French laws on Sikh headgear or expressing concern over the Sri Lankan government's action on the LTTE.

    The political parties in Tamil Nadu have vested interests. Most of them have been sympathetic to the LTTE, some overtly and some covertly. It is not in India's interest to interfere in Sri Lanka's domestic affairs, especially when the aim of the Sri Lankan military exercise is to isolate and eliminate the LTTE, one of the world's most dreaded terrorist organizations.
    Only the last sentence was published.
