    So what is the common thing between the left leaning know-all self certified Superior West and Pakistan? Well, both are jittery about the prospect of Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister of India since both have always preferred weak, myopic, self serving and pacifist regimes to govern India. Modi is very opposite of that in every respect and thus he is making both the West and Pakistan nervous. In Modi, it seems both the West and Pakistan see the emergence of a powerful nationalist leader like Vladimir Putin. And that is an unnerving proposition for many.


    The Sinister Campaign of Economist on behalf of Western Interest

    Last month, The Economist had come out with one of the most partial, one sided diatribe against Modi titled ‘Can Anyone Stop Narendra Modi?' That article by The Economist was filled with one sided tirade, half-truths, lopsided logic and casting of aspersion on even the Supreme Court for giving clean chit to Narendra Modi. The tone of the article seemed to be aimed at questioning the intellect of the average Indian for preferring Modi over others.

    The article did all it could to malign and defame Narendra Modi, and true to typical British style, (The Economist is published from London) had some recommendations for the Indians, who they have ruled for centuries and plundered. The Economist recommended Rahul Gandhi as a better choice for India by similarly ignoring all the issues of scam, corruption, inflation and lack of governance. Much like what the British did 65 years back in terms of imposing a new ruler on India, the London based Economist tried to do the same now.

    Perhaps the magazine's London based writers had forgotten that the British had left India more than 65 years back and that India today is an independent country with its own self sufficient economy and populace knowledgeable enough to know what to do and that none had sought any advice whatsoever from the know-all writers of London based magazine.

    Rattled Pakistan makes all Kinds of Wrong Noises...

    In the same league, Pakistan's Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan made an obnoxious statement that Narendra Modi is a threat to regional peace. Strange though as it is that the nation which has made a special name for itself through its specialisation in spreading terrorism, narcotics and fake currencies is now concerned now about regional peace.

    On Modi's statement about hunting down Dawood Ibrahim, the Pakistani Minister stated, ‘Such provocative and condemnable statement from the leader of a major political party is touching the last limit of enmity towards Pakistan," He further stated, ‘Pakistani leadership, people and particularly armed forces have the right and power to reciprocate the expression of sentiments coming from across the border."

    Interestingly even as Pakistan has been making bizarre comments about Modi, a report by US State Department Country Reports on Terrorism 2013 stated that ‘India remained severely affected by and vulnerable to terrorism from Pakistan-based groups and their affiliates.'
    India Severely Affected by Terrorism from Pakistan: US report | NDTV.com

    What Modi had actually stated....
    In the first place Modi had never even mentioned about Pakistan and had only talked about Dawood Ibrahim, the fugitive terror mastermind and that too because a journalist had asked him about the issue of India's Home Minister going public about India's collaboration with US on nabbing Dawood Ibrahim, on which Modi had stated that the Indian Home Minister reflected lack of maturity and that he should not have gone public with such information.

    Modi had questioned in that interview if US had got success in killing Osama Bin Laden if it had gone public with its operational plans before launching it. There was no mention of Pakistan made by Modi and yet Pakistan got rattled. There can only be one conclusion from the same that Dawood Ibrahim is very much present in Pakistan and the Pakistani establishment is nervous about an unwavering and no-nonsense Modi regime taking Pakistan to task.

    The statement by the Interior Minister of Pakistan was followed by an equally controversial statement made by Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif who stated that Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan.

    Pakistan Prefers UPA to Modi- No Doubt about That...

    In the hindsight, one wonders what exactly makes Pakistan so jittery about Modi and his style of governance? The Pakistani establishment knows pretty well how much it has taken the Indian Government for a ride for almost ten years now and perhaps Pakistan has become used to the UPA style of either remaining mute, look the other way or raise the peace bogey as well as the fear of a nuclear war to avoid any action or strong response to all the kinds of nuisance Pakistan has been doing to India for long.
    In the last 10 years, Pakistan has been responsible for several terror attacks on Indian soil in addition to instances of intrusions by the Pakistani Army as well as ambush and beheading of the Indian Army personnel by Pakistani Special Forces.)

    For the last 10 years Pakistan has got too much used to dealing with such Indian Ministers who show immense respect and address even dreaded terror masterminds like Hafeez Sayeed of Lashkar e Taiba as Shri Hafeez Sayeed and such Congress leaders who term Osama as Osama Ji and Hafeez Sayeed as Hafeez Sayeed Saheb (Sic!!!)

    For the last 10 years, Pakistan has got too much used to such Indian Defence Ministers like AK Anthony who, in spite of gruesome ambush and beheading of Indian Soldiers by Pakistani Army, openly came in defence of Pakistan army by claiming that it was not the Pakistani Army but terrorists in Pakistan Army uniform killed Indian soldiers. For the last 10 years, Pakistan has got used to Prime Ministers like Manmohan Singh who would rather timidly sign a sickening document like that of the Sharm el Shaikh Agreement with the then Pakistan Prime Minister.

    A decisive and powerful India under Modi is Pakistan's Nightmare

    Pakistan's biggest worry is that with the arrival of Modi regime, all this may change. In the first place, Modi is for sure going to go for massive modernisation of the armed forces and augment India's arsenal, something that has been systematically neglected for the last several years now, to the extent that India's ammunition reserve to fight a war is merely for twenty days now and its armed forces have been grappling with severe lack of adequate weapon systems and spare parts,

    Be it Pakistan or the Western nations, their biggest fear is the emergence of a Vladimir Putin like leader in India. And they see a kind of a strong leader like Putin in Modi. The self certified supremacist West and especially the European states who colonised the world for long, have never wanted strong leaders to emerge in Asia or Africa. In case of India, Britain's revulsion and utter dislike for the likes of Netaji Subhas Bose or Sardar Patel is not a secret.

    Modi may Revive India as Putin did in Russia- That makes the West Anxious

    Putin's emergence more than one and a half decade back as the President of Russia, metamorphosed a decaying and collapsing Russia into an economic and military powerhouse once more, which has literally become an impregnable fortress for the Europeans and the Americans who are otherwise known for their poking nose habits. The recent series of incidents in Ukraine exemplified how Russia's Vladimir Putin brought the European Union down to their knees and exposed their bluffs by showing that neither Europe has the economy nor the military might to challenge Russia and it has alarmed many of those erstwhile power blocs. Further, Putin has been ruthless in dealing with terrorism.

    The predicament for the West and Pakistan is perhaps that they know it for sure that Modi has similar Putin like capability to metamorphose India into an economic and military powerhouse through a series of tough measures and steps which would help India leverage and unleash its real potential. It is this thought that is unnerving Pakistan and many others.
    Pakistan knows it well that if another 26/11 happens during Modi's regime, India would not remain mute, timid and avoid any response as it did during Manmohan Singh's regime. Pakistan knows that if Modi arrives, orchestrating another major terror attack on India would mean massive and ruthless response in return.

    The West should better mind its own Economy

    Those who have waged needless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, those who advocated needless invasion and bombing in Libya and supported rogue terror groups in Syria, those whose own economies are in serious trouble, should ideally take care of their own decaying economies and collapsing social discord. Instead of that, the snobbish self certified intellectuals of Europe use their mouthpiece like Economist to needlessly advocate what Indian voters should do.

    Modi's emergence is good news for those who want to witness an economically strong and a militarily resilient India who would once more regain her rightful place in the global arena. And that is the bad news for Pakistan and the West.

    Pissing off West is always a good indicator of progress. Expect more such articles and interviews by pseudo-intellectual Western reporters who would keep revisiting Godhra incident over and over but conveniently ignore everything that has been done in Iraq, Syria, Libya and now Ukraine.

    Why the West finds Modi’s rise inconvenient
    Why the West finds Modi’s rise inconvenient | Niti Central

    “What do you think of Western Civilisation?”

    “ I think it is a good idea.” Ascribed to Mahatma Gandhi

    Newspapers across the Western world are falling over each other with articles condemning Narendra Modi’s likely rise as India’s Prime Minister. From The Economist to the Guardian, from Germany’s Nürnberger Nachrichten (calling Modi ‘racist’) to the New York Times, commentators are wringing their hands over the loss of the ‘soul of India’. The ostensible reason give is the 2002 post-Godhra riots in which approximately a thousand people were killed — both Muslims and Hindus, which is routinely referred to as a ‘pogrom’ or even as a ‘genocide’.

    The West is of course intimately familiar with genocides and pogroms. Western civilisation has wiped out diverse peoples and cultures including an estimated 100 million Native Americans in the American Holocaust and about 6 millions Jews in the European Holocaust. The witch hunts by the Christian Church in Europe’s Middle Ages killed thousands of medicine women and the two European-initiated World Wars of the 20th century killed another hundred million people between them. Communist ideology imported from Europe into Russia resulted in the deaths of several million more under the hands of Joseph Stalin.

    Western concern for India’s Muslims is cited as the main reason for opposition to Modi. It is worth remembering that, more recently than the Gujarat riots, the America-led invasion of Iraq resulted in an estimated hundred thousand to nearly half a million Muslims being killed. This Bush-Blair war had bipartisan support in US Congress, including 58 per cent of Senate Democrats who supported the Iraq Resolution. The Western Left and Right collaborated in this project. The liberal New York Times helped manufacture consent for the Iraq war. These hundreds of thousands of deaths, are not labeled as “the Iraq genocide”, but are merely “collateral damage” from the war. Despite the false pretext for this war, neither Bush nor Blair were tried in their countries for war crimes, unlike Modi who went through multiple rounds of judicial scrutiny in India.

    Given this history, the West’s apparent concern for Muslims is too facile a reason for the trenchant opposition to Modi. Riots have happened in independent India under many different governments. The British policy of divide and rule had instigated the division of India on religious lines, leading to large-scale displacement and killing. After independence, simmering conflict fanned by politicians broke into riots, most often during the rule of the Congress. In Gujarat in 1969, nearly 5000 Muslims were killed under Congress rule, yet the Chief Minister was not ruled satanic. Unlike in Gujarat 2002, where scores of Hindu rioters were killed in police firing to stop rioters, the 1984 anti-Sikh riots under Rajiv Gandhi hardly saw any such preventative action. However, Rajiv Gandhi was never demonised in Western academia and media. What is special about Modi?

    In his book ‘Clash of Civilizations’, Harvard professor Samuel P Huntington laid out his thesis that basic differences in civilisations will result in a clash. In his book he identified ‘Western’ and ‘Hindu’ civilisations among the major distinct civilisations of the world. While Huntington’s thesis has been criticised, we must accept Huntington’s view as an important way the West looks at the world. Huntington was deeply embedded in the institutions of American power. He was the White House Coordinator of Security Planning under President Jimmy Carter, a consultant to the US Department of State, founder and editor of Foreign Policy magazine and a professor at Columbia and Harvard.

    The rise of Modi bothers the West because the BJP and Modi, unlike the Congress, appear to stand for the Hindu civilisation. This view may not be far off. Unlike the other parties, the BJP’s manifesto, explicitly invokes continuity with Hindu kingdoms of the past. It sees modern India, as not just born today, but as a continuity of an ancient civilisation. This threatens both the Christian Right and the Secular Left of the West, the two prongs of Western civilisational imperialism. The Christian Right sees the rise of a Hindu civilisation as threatening its conversion agenda, the Left sees it as a “religious” threat to the expansion of Western secular universalism.

    Fed on Doniger-esque caricatures of Hinduism and partisan account of the Gujarat riots, they are inclined to view the rise of a Hindu party as an extremely distasteful and incomprehensible existential threat. Just as the a handful of British people ruled India with the help of a large number of Indian sepoys, the intellectual Indian sepoy army that has internalised the Western worldview, view this rise with the same distaste and actively write against it in India and abroad.

    The Hindu civilisation doesn’t have the proclivity towards genocide that shows up in the history of the West. Nor does it fit into the categories of “Religious Right” and “Secular Left.” Monotheism has an issue with diversity and a record of persecuting religious minorities since it is based on exclusive theologies that view the other as Satanic. The Hindu civilisation naturally respects different traditions and has a record of diversity and pluralism, including providing refuge to small minorities such as the Parsis and the Jews without any persecution. It aims to raise human consciousness through harnessing the tendencies of the mind. It has had no concept of the “heathen” or the “kaffir.” Neither does it subscribe to the clash of civilisation but to “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or ‘one world one family’.

    An India based on Hindu civilisational values is not a threat to its diverse religious groups nor to the West. Indeed it may help civilise, or rather Sankritise it, to make it more refined. This has already been discovered by millions of Westerners practicing mindfulness meditation, Yoga, Vipassana, Sanskrit chanting and other Indian spiritual practices as a way to refine the mind and senses. We can only hope that the mainstream of Western Civilisation will also move away from its tendency towards genocide and towards becoming more Sanskrit. India under Modi is less likely to experience religious violence than it has in the years under Congress regimes since independence because of the humanising effect of Hindu culture. India is finding its soul, not losing it.

    The West and Modi
    The West and Modi :Head On:Minhaz Merchant's blog-The Economic Times

    The attitude of the West towards Narendra Modi reflects a deep political dilemma. Used to dealing with pliable dictators in the Middle-East and weak, corrupt governments in the Indian subcontinent, the West for the first time faces the prospect of a democratically elected leader – Modi – who is neither pliable nor corrupt.

    Western media often hews slavishly (but with dexterous sophistry) to official Western foreign policy. That policy is often self-interested, disruptive and intrusive. It has propped up brutal Arab dictators, bankrolled a terrorist state like Pakistan and destablised countries ranging from Syria to Ukraine.

    The US and its allies in Europe were delighted to work for ten years with a government like the United Progressive Alliance (UPA). A prime minister without real power like Manmohan Singh and a de facto leader like Sonia Gandhi with limited accountability but absolute power created a fertile geopolitical arena for Washington.

    The liberal power elite in Delhi was similarly co-opted. The Americans know how easily journalists, academics, think-tankers and NGOs fall for sponsored foreign seminars, gifts, donations and other rewards.

    In return the Indian liberal, intellectual elite – much of it neither really liberal nor really intellectual – was compromised.

    Modi provokes a hostile reaction in both these constituencies – Western governments and media on the one hand and their co-opted Indian quasi-elite on the other.

    The vitriolic, at times vicious, recent attacks on Modi in the Western media are a product of the real fear that a Modi government will upend the fraudulent elite power structure in Delhi with geopolitical consequences well beyond India’s borders.

    Modi will be tough on Pakistan, pragmatic with China and cooperative with Japan. He will deal with the West on India’s – not the West’s – terms.

    Grandees like Amartya Sen and his fellow-travellers in India and the West blanch at the very thought. Their idea of India is not most Indians’ idea of India. It is a lesson they may learn the hard way on May 16.

    * * *

    As I wrote in my book, The New Clash of Civilizations: How the Contest Between America, China, India and Islam Will Shape Our Century, America’s history provides many clues to its current dilemma over dealing with India’s likely new political leadership.

    The United States was founded by working-class families escaping religious persecution from newly-Protestant England 425 years ago. These English settlers (Britain as a nation did not yet exist) massacred indigenous Indians, appropriated their land and shipped in slave labour from Africa to work the cotton fields.

    The US won independence in 1776 and as it grew more powerful, it invaded Mexico and by 1848 had annexed what are today California, Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico. By the 1890s, it had colonized the Philippines and built a silent empire arching from the Pacific to the Atlantic.

    After the Second World War it invaded Korea, Vietnam and Grenada, and propped up dictators and puppet-monarchs in Latin America and the Middle-East (including the early Saddam Hussein and the sybaritic Shah of Iran). It made a pact with the sheikhs of the post-Ottoman Middle-East to deny Arab citizens voting rights in return for US military protection, ostensibly against Israel but in reality against popular democratic movements in their own countries.

    In 1932, the US and Britain established Saudi Arabia—custodian of the holy mosques in Mecca and Medina and a part of the Ottoman Empire since 1818—as an independent Islamic kingdom under the Wahhabi Al Saud dynasty.

    Over the next thirty years, a pro-West military dictator or sheikh was installed in virtually every Arab country. Caught in a pincer between Anglo-Saxon politicians and Arab sheikhs, the Arab citizen had no democracy, few freedoms but, thanks to oil, reasonable prosperity.

    The US continues to follow a foreign policy of ruthless self-interest in Asia to secure its geopolitical goals. But America is a declining power. By 2045, it will not only be relegated to the status of the world’s third largest economy (after China and India), but it will also, for the first time in its history, become a non-white-majority country.

    African-Americans, Latinos and Asians comprise nearly 30 per cent of America’s population today. By 2045, that figure will rise to 51 per cent. The implications of this demographic shift will resonate across social, ethnic, economic and cultural faultlines.

    As India’s own demographic dividend kicks in, the new government’s bargaining power with a declining US will grow—if South Block gets its strategy right.

    That strategy involves deepening India’s economic and diplomatic engagement with East Asia, Africa and Latin America, influencing the course of the post-US Af-Pak world and creating a secure environment in the Indian Ocean to the south and the central Asiatic republics to the north.

    Can a putative Modi government achieve these objectives? The West and sections of its media would appear to hope not. Strong Indian leadership is anathema to its historical agenda which favours a geopolitically accommodative status quo.

    That status quo is about to be demolished by an outsider. Modi will not give Western governments – or its over-rated media – the deference they have long taken for granted in the incestuous power warrens of Lutyens’ Delhi.

    Why don't our indian friends understand one country's leader could only adopt the policy within the power of his country.
    India is not russia, so Modi couldn't be Putin.

    Absolutely. While India is world's third largest economy & is consistently among fastest growing large economies in the world (& poised to grow at much faster pace unlike a slowing down PRC), Russia is a declining/fading power excessively dependent on its natural resources alone for its survival.
