    Relations between India and Saudi Arabia have been always good and Arabs always see towards India for trade and political stability and even King Abdullah was invited as the chief guest at Republic day parade in 2006 and during that time it was LeT and so called Al Qaida based in Pakistan were issuing threat against the King Abdullah visit to India .

    http://www.thehindu.com/todays-pape...urity-cover-for-saudi-king/article3243746.ece

    Indian President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam being an Indian Muslim gave clear message to the Arab world that India is not Anti Muslim and it was indeed a great event to end all the wrong info about India and Indians .

    Basically its the Pakistanis who halt any relations between India and Muslim world . One should not forget how Pakistan blackmailed Saudi Arabia in 1967 of leaving OIC if Republic of India become member of OIC.

    Saudi Monarchy itself is battling Al Qaida within Saudi Arabia and it is going on long before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 by the name SAWA Movement .

    In which world are you living in ? :noidea::shocked:

    Sorry to burst this so called India-Saudi friendship bubble !

    Till now we had only direct give and take relationship with those Wahabis through oil trade. It's a different matter that, they funded radical islamists in India through ISI/Hawala and are responsible for most of the mess.

    Now with this Visa on arrival, we have opened our doors officially to all terrorists.

    The relationship changed with the visit of Jaswant Singh where the Saudis told us that "wait you guys are not bad. we were told by the Pakis you were the worst people on the face of this earth". Next was the character certificate given by the Americans to the Saudis. This has allowed the increase in oil imports from saudi arabia and more and more of our considerations be heard by the saudis. its good to get the Saudis appreciate our interests and it would be good if the pakis realise this. watch how the pakis replicate this visa on arrival for the arabs (if they have not done already).

    My only problem with the above is the Iran relationship. I would like to see the Americans balance their overwhelming tilt favouring towards the Saudis and Sunnis by improving their relationship with Iran and Shias. Afterall Iraq is in American hands. We have to support and push for this Shia-Sunni balancing diplomatically as it would create a new reality that would be good for the region and for us. Afterall India has a large Muslim populace and the local Muslim populace would appreciate if we do that for the Muslim world (bring balance and conciliation between Sunni-Shia). We have to take such positions.

    Nonsense. Al-Qaida has been an instrument of Saudi foreign policy. Only when the al-Qaida gets too powerful, they battle it. They have been funding and aiding the al-Qaida (albeit under various names) since before the Soviet-Mujahideen War. It's like you have a vicious dog, that you use to hunt, but you size it down when it growls at you, but you keep feeding it, because it helps you hunt.

    There is no such thing as "Soviet invasion of Afghanistan." It was a war with the Soviets and Afghans on one side, and some radicalized Afghan, Pakistani, and Arab Mujahideen on the other side.

    Al Qaida is against Saudi monarchy similar like they were against Egyptian Baathist regime .


    Afghan Mujhadeens got funding and training from CIA , it was American media which brought Osama bin Laden in limelight to get recruits against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan on which Saudis were not happy because Osama bin Laden aka Tim Osman was problematic for the Saudi Monarchy.

    There was invasion of Afghanistan which lasted for 10 years in which Afghanistan natural resources were robbed and thousands of cities and villages were razed to ground to keep up the occupation .

    Wrong.

    They have been battling those who want to topple the Al Saud family.

    There's a big difference.

    Expect more islamic terror entering India through more and more Saudi clerics now funding and running terror camps in places like Kerala (the number one state with relations to Saudi), UP and W. Bengal.

    Thanks a lot, liberal losers.

    Salman Khurshid is pathetic.

    Saudi Arabia funds extremists around the world extensively so that they will not not come home to roost. Plain and simple. There may be elements in Al Qaida who wanted to upstage Al Sauds and take over Ka'aba admin. But most benefit from the generous Saudi and Qatari funding channels.

    The proportion of Saudi funding for a quake and flood hit areas in Asia is one school or hospital rebuilt to building 2/3 new mosques!!
