Home office bans Indian minister Narendra Modi from entering

The Home Office is not issuing a visa to the Indian minister Narendra “butcher of Gujarat” Modi, I can confirm exclusively!

Obviously I’m disappointed that I can’t protest against the scumbag, but it seems that the government is now strictly enforcing a policy of banning anyone controversial. I don’t agree with it, but I do think that if the government is to ban controversial people then it should do so with bigots all races, religions and ethnicities, not just the ones that people like Douglas Murray don’t like.

    Good riddance to the bad rubbish. And excellent decision by the home office

    This decision should be applauded but same standards should be applied to Hezbollah and Hamas mouthpieces too.

    Modi committed genocide and was definitely responsible for the state administration looking the other way when people were slaughtered. I am proud that my Government did not allow this asshole to get into the country.

    George Bush didn`t either.

    This is great news. While I support the right of people to speak freely in this country, I don’t see any reason why we have to issue visas to those outside it who are trouble.

    No platform for facist, because they will not provide one for us. We can’t get too liberal.

    Well done Sunny,

    I,ll go to the archive and come back with some other Modi stuff tomorrow. I see from the front page of the East London Advertiser that the IFE dominated Tower Hamlets Labour Party is in trouble again with its council owned Brady Centre hosting a video nasty from the Yemen. It seems that, once again the IFE member Lutfor Rahman the current council leader, has approved council property for Islamic extremism.

    Anwar Al Awalki will be speaking via vio conferencing on the joys of ” 44 ways of supporting jihad”, this it seems includes arms training.

    Lutfor Rahman is no stranger to all this as he was snapped by the ELA last year after he took part in a secret meeting with Sheikh Abdur Rahman al Sudais who is the Muslim equal to the Pope being the keeper of the Kabbah in Mecca.

    Many are asking why he arranged a secret meeting in the Town Hall with the Sheikh and is still denying that he knew who he was. It seems he is claiming that the Sheikh was just in the Town Hall and just dropped in for a cup of tea. Don’t they have any tea in Mecca?

    Maybe the powers that be in the Labour Party should be asking why PVE money is going to groups that paint “kill the Jews” on football pitches in Heneage St just off Brick Lane.

    Me too :) . Sadly though given his economic and administrative efficiency, he has the backing of the big coporate houses in India, to them all that matters is the bottom line. He could well run India in a coupla years :( . Modi seems to have gone on an overdrive to resurrect his image of late. This month’s The Atlantic has a coverpage article on Modi which was really sympathetic if not down right applaudatory to him!

    Indian minister Narendra “butcher of Gujarat” Modi

    Sunny, hes not a minister in the federal government. He heads the Gujarat state government.

  8. Shamit — on 9th April, 2009 at 9:20 pm  

    Rumbold — you are spot on.

    Vikrant: Interesting thought about Modi running India. It is going to be difficult — looking at the electoral map — it is obvious that BJP by itself cannot come back to power on its own. And no coalition partner would want Modi in 7 Race Course Road.

    No one would like to put him in 7 race course road either from the coalition.

    It has become even more difficult today — when Congress withdrew Tyler’s nomination today based on the 1984 carnage — if Modi is projected as the PM candidate now or in the near future — it is going to start a backlash from everywhere.

    Remember over 50% of the Indian population is below 30 and most of them could not care less about religion.

    So I don’t think we have to worry about that in the near future. If you ask me who might be PM candidate after Advani I would put money on Arun Jaitley.
    He is savvy, intelligent and urbanehe and he is not communal — the kind of image India wants as PM – and has been running BJP ground strategy for over 4-5 years. He was instrumental in BJP winning the recent state victories including Gujarat.

    Yeah I was going to say Chief Minister for Gujarat but I thought it might be too much info for many readers. But yeah, you’re right of course :)

  10. dave bones — on 9th April, 2009 at 10:51 pm  

    I have got to say that I am sure this is going to be a popular policy.

  11. Vikrant — on 10th April, 2009 at 12:39 am  

    Shamit,

    Remember over 50% of the Indian population is below 30 and most of them could not care less about religion.

    Shamit its precisely those middle class cosmopolitan, English educated Indian youth who are the propelling BJP in this election. From my recent visit to the old country, I could clearly see a sense of frustation with Congress, its Mandal era politics, its patronage of urban slums and needless to say complete their lackadaisical attitude towards security.

    BJP much like the Republicans cater to two very contrasting group, the largely uppper caste rich and the middle class and the lowest common denominator hindutva loons. Under Vajpayee i think BJP was transforming into a truly right-wing party ala Christian Democrats but the Modis and the Varun Gandhis have pushed that back by decades =/.

    You were saying something about protesting Sunny. Well, get yourself down to the Brady Centre in Hanbury just off Brick Lane over the weekend as a video link up from the Yemen will have firebrand cleric Anwar al Awlaki speaking to vulnerable Bangladeshi Muslim youth. I seems that in spite of protests the IFE controlled Tower Hamlets Council is allowing it to go ahead. Brings a whole new meaning to “revolution on the rates”.

    I,ll be down there with my camera gettinga few snaps for the family album. The people you like to hate at the Quilliam Foundation have a good piece on his background and extremism.

  13. Rumbold — on 10th April, 2009 at 11:14 am  

    I agree Shamit. Modi, while powerful within Gujarat and the BJp, would be unacceptable as the head of a coaltion government. And apparently, he has plenty of enemies within the BJP as well.

  14. Mangles — on 15th April, 2009 at 5:53 am  

    Only thing is… why only ban Modi. I’d like to see a ban on all indian Ministers who have stood by and not made any credible effort to attain convictions of all those involved in not just the Gujarat riots but also the anti-Sikh pogroms in 1984, and the inhuman and barbaric killing of thousands of innocent Sikhs in Punjab in the late 80′s and early 90′s by the state and its apparatus (legal and illegal).

    Rab rakha!

    You going to protest someone shown by video link?
    Awalki isnt coming to the UK. There is also a big difference between Modi who was involved in a genocide and Awalki, who strident as he is, isnt. Thought you believed in free speech dicky?

    I presume you also protest BNP meetings or people ranting against Muslims? I thought not.

    Im sure billericy dicky is deeply concern about ” vulnerable “Bangladeshi”(!) Muslim youth.” (probably about how to send them “back” to Bangladesh)

    It is no body’s case to deny that there was no retaliation against Muslims in Gujarat in the aftermath of a Muslim mob burning down a train at Godhra which resulted in the deaths of almost 50 Hindu pilgrims mostly women and children. There indeed was shameful and in some instances horrific violence against innocent Muslims, but in the light of a new report by the Indian Supreme Court appointed Special Investigation Task Force, SIT ( probing the riots ) headed by the ex-chief of the Central Bureau Of Investigation the highly respected Mr Ragavan, many questions about the riots have begun to surface. The report makes a devastating indictment of that obnoxious virago and so-called human rights activist Teesta Setalvad ( married to a Muslim activist ) for fabricating many instances of violence against Muslims that had actually never happened. The question that now arises is, was the scale of the anti-Muslim violence as large as claimed by this creature and her equally mendacious fellow travellers. Is this another instance of outrageous Islamic grievance mongering in which grievances are amplified many times over and lies told a hundred times so that they are eventually perceived to be true. What you will read below will perhaps help clarify matters. It is long but well worth a read. And by the way, much of the Anglicised Indian media which played ball ( no pun intended ) with this vile woman Teesta’s relentless campaign against Narendra Modi and his government has gone into an embarrassed silence. Such is the Indian media,no pride,no self-respect and very little integrity.
