    India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth: BJP - The Economic Times

    I really enjoyed Mr.Sinha's speech in the RS on this issue and he has again spoken in support of the SL Tamils. I agree with his assertion that without Indian collusion the genocide in Lanka would not have happened. Also good to know that its the official stand of the party. As he asks, "Will the PM show the courage?"

    :facepalm: BJP! Why stop at commonwealth which is a joke of an organization? Suspend from the UN too which is another joke as well.

    BJP is playing silly politics.

    BJP Accuses Centre of Inept Handling of SL Tamils Issue | news.outlookindia.com

    BJP needs to take this message to the electorate of TN in an aggressive manner.

    Re: India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth:

    Why would "moderate" Indian be concerned about this ? I have heard that dictum that "rest of Idnia does not care about this issue as its not indian citizens" ad-nauseaum. So why would they concern about this ?

    Are "moderate" Indians so stone hearted that they cant see the genocide that happened in Lanka and would be smug about it. I hope not. Plus plenty of "moderate Indians" were saying that diplomatic approach is the only way out. Now this is a classic diplomatic approach.

    p.s: Tamil votes would have been sufficient. All of us support the issue. Not just hardliners.

    I am beginning to come around w.r.t. Sri Lanka. Spare the rod and spoil the child. We helped them with ending the war and they gift the Chinese a naval base. Time we started treating them like the US treated Cuba.

    Re: India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth:

    BJP should not pick and choose. If they take a stance on SL, then uniformly they should take a stance on BD genocide as well. All or none law.

    Else it's just tamil votebank appeasement which is pretty transparent to the rest of India.

    Re: India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth:

    Agree friend. I remember BJP MPs raising the issue of BD Hindus in Parliament and also undertaking some march to Dhaka.

    But one thing, unlike SL, BD govt is not persecuting Hindus, its the Jamatis and also BD govt is not giving any naval bases to China or shooting our fishermen.

    Having said that, if Hindus find themselves in trouble, I'm all for India taking up their issue be it Pak, BD , SL or anywhere in the world. If India does not speak for Hindus, who else will ?

    Passing of resolution against Lanka was also a diplomatic move, "classic" I may add which is of no use and not binding. Commonwealth is a joke and served no purpose except for those who organized games and made money of it. India might as well leave the organization that was formed just to retain some "shaan" of an erstwhile superpower.

    The thing is, India has to decide now if the regional pressure is going to be here to stay and it will dictate the policy if adopts towards SL, and so come up with a policy that is anti SL and therefore work up a strategy to contain Chinese expansion.

    I mean go the whole hog. Either support fully or oppose fully. No here and there with watered down resolution, silly assembly or parliamentary resolutions etc. I mean if we decide to say yes we have to now be anti SL and boning SL is one of the solutions, bloody well do it. Let us be firm one way or the other.

    What is this Commonwealth about? A Commonwealth Games held every four years? Or visa free among members? Or aid from Great Britain? :shocked:

    Re: India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth:

    It is a colonial relic and increasingly of little consequence. The Commonwealth was conceived when Britain began withdrawing from its colonies. The former colonies decided to continue some kind of cooperation among themselves and with Britain. But it did not progress the way Britain wanted, with a lot of countries charting their own course in international affairs. Moreover, except for Canada and Australia, no other country now accepts the British queen as its titular head. Over time, the Commonwealth has become a paper organization except for the games and some cultural exchange programs and some economic aid that a few of the smaller countries receive.
    To my knowledge there never were visa concessions among the members.

    Re: India should have sought Sri Lanka's suspension from Commonwealth:

    India definitely needs to take some strong stands on the Sri Lankan Tamil issue. Commonwealth is of no consequence. But an international inquiry is a must. And steps to rehabilitate the Sri Lankan Tamils and find a means of better devolution of power... India should press for the 13th amendment implementation.
    I believe India can do a lot through diplomatic pressure alone.

    Sri Lanka should move out first before someone banish her.

    Off topic though, when is Canada putting an end to treating the British queen as its head of state?
