    Is it proper/allowed for foreign countries to come in and help Indians of specific religious affiliation only ?

    Is this not interference with our internal affairs ?

    Can India being a secular state allow this ?

    Will this not be tantamount to promoting Islam by Islamic countries of Middle East in India ?

    UAE, Qatar, Oman, other Arab states to fund minorities in Karnataka

    Bangalore, Jul 15 (IANS): Nearly 20 Arab states have pledged to improve the welfare of minorities in Karnataka with financial aid to young entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises and for empowering women.

    "About 20 Arab nations in West Asia and Africa have committed to grant Rs.8 million this year to fund minority entrepreneurs, help young women become self-reliant and educate the youth," Indo-Arab Chamber of Commerce executive director Asif Iqbal told IANS.

    Among the states that have pledged help are Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

    A delegation of the chamber recently met Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah here and offered support to the government's various minority programmes.

    With offices in Dubai and Muscat, the chamber has about 330 members, including 130 from across the Arab states.

    "We assured the state government that we will facilitate more investment to Karnataka from the Arab world," Iqbal said.

    "A 250-member trade delegation from the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) will visit the state to participate in the TAB (Transcending Arabian Borders) 2013 conference here in August," he said.

    A very odd situation.

    Next, the Vatican would be justified to assist only the Roman Catholics!

    The Baptists will then fund the Nagas.

    And so on.

    In other words, this would be outsourcing welfare schemes to specific religious minorities.

    And would that be very secular?

    @Ray sir, I do believe this is a very dangerous idea allowing theocratic states like Iran and Saudi Arabia to enter into India.

    The concept of foreign govts sponsoring scheme only for a specific group and it being acceptable to our Govt does not auger well for the social health of the country.

    Already there are religious NGOs who are at these scheme and so why should foreign Govt step in?

    Syria in the making.

    Expect more cutting out hearts out of corpses and eating.

    If I were the dictator of India, I'd bomb the Saudis back to the Dino-age, and seriously, I mean it.
