Thumbs up No entry for Modi into US, visa denied

No entry for Modi into US, visa denied

INDIATIMES NEWS NETWORK[ FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2005 12:31:00 PM ]

NEW DELHI: In a severe rebuke to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, the United States has denied him entry to America.

Taking a strong stand against the senior BJP leader and Hindutva icon, the US Consular division on Friday denied him a "diplomatic visa", apparently holding him responsible for the communal riots in Gujarat in 2002 which claimed over 2000 lives.

In addition, his tourist/business visa which was already granted has also been revoked under a section of US Immigration and Nationality Act.

A US embassy spokesman confirmed that the "Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi had applied for but was denied diplomatic visa under 214 (b) of Immigration and Nationality Act because he was not coming for a purpose that qualify for a diplomatic visa."

When pointed out that Modi was already holding a tourist-***-business visa, the spokesman said Modi's "existing tourist/business visa has been revoked under Section 212 (a)(2)(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act."

The Section makes any foreign government official who was responsible or "directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religions freedom" ineligible for the visa.

US officials argued that the State Department's stand on Gujarat riots were based largely on the reports of India's National Human Rights Commission findings and other independent Indian sources.

Its conclusions on Gujarat riots and the role of the then BJP government, state police, and other official organs as well as Chief Minister Narendra Modi, are all contained in detail in the US State Department's annual reports on human rights and religious freedom.

Officials confirmed that with the denial of his visa, Modi now has no chance of entering the United States, where he has a large number of right-wing Gujarati following.

finally, atleast, he is getting some international recognition for his genocide!!!

The Kaangress could be involved in this game. Who knows what Natwar Singh might have been upto. After losing Jharkhand and subsequently trying to maul the constitution, getting 10 seats in Bihar and the Goa fiasco I feel Kaangress will draw solace with this issue.

India is Insulted by Bastard America

A spokesman of the US Embassy in New Delhi said Modi has been denied diplomatic visa and his tourist/business visa already granted has also been revoked as per the US Immigration and Nationality Act.

Modi was scheduled to visit to US from March 20.

The Gujarat chief minister said his is a democratically elected government. "By denying me visa the US government has given a lie to its claims that it respects democracies," he said.

Modi wondered if one country can impose its rules and perceptions on another country. "Tomorrow if the American army chief seeks to visit India, should we look at the US track record in Iraq and deny him a visa," Modi asked.

He said no court in India or anywhere else has delivered any verdict on Godhra and the riots that followed in parts of Gujarat. "If the riots is the reason why I have been denied a visa, on what basis has this decision been taken. America must not forget that my government was elected after the riots in a free and fair election." he added.

Modi said the Union government must take the matter up with its US counterpart. "The country has been insulted. We must give a befitting reply."

When Modi visited England in 2003, there was a similar outcry by people who lost their relatives in the 2002 riots.

Gujarat leader faces UK protests.

There apparently are a larger number of such people in the US, who don't want him there....

Obviously, Modi is a casualty of a trial by the media, and heresay.
These yankees have no problems welcoming Saudi princlings even though followers of other religions too get severely punished if they do not follow Islamic practices e.g. drinking during the day in Ramzaan!

SEKKLAR FORCES GET SHOT IN THE ARM

I think Kaangress will now form a secular alliance with George W Bush and fight the next round of elections in Bihar and elsewhere.
Sekklar forces will be strengthened by the American presence.

So..

Sonia + Ram Vilas Paswan + Laloo + Harkishen Singh Surjeet + Somnath Chaterjee + GEORGE W BUSH + Pervez Musharraf(for being chief of the country who refused to play in Gujarat)

Sekklarism Zindabad!!

...and Bush should be given citizenship of India. At least we can then have an Indian who has killed 100 times more Muslims than Modi.

Talking

I am disappointed with Dubya....

Dubya declined to issue visa to Modi to appease Muslim populace and show that US is secular....if
the WMD would have been found in Iraq or OBL had struck US again....this would not have been the case

Paranoia or Anti-congress obsession or both? Well the letter requesting state dept. against issuing visa to Modi seems to have originated from 21 US Congressmen. Now is this is the congress you are referring to ? Natwar singh has taken this up with US authorities.

Having said that, denying visa to Modi by US authorities smacks of double standards. The previous Chinese president Jiang Zemin, who was responsible for Tiananmen massacre, got a red carpet welcome in US.
Gerry Adams of Sinn Fenn comes to New England on an almost annual pilgrimage to raise funds for IRA. Now isnt IRA isnt involved in sectarian conflicts?
It is just plain hypocricy.
