Catholic archbishop's letter incensed India's BJP and he's RIGHT

How a letter by a Catholic archbishop incensed India's BJP

Archbishop Couto's letter should be seen in the context of growing anti-minority sentiment in India.

A letter the Catholic Archbishop of Delhi sent to all parish priests working in India's capital city has created a furore in the country's already charged political scene.
In the letter dated May 8, Archbishop Anil Couto requested parish priests to start a year-long prayer campaign to save India from the "turbulent political atmosphere", which "poses a threat to the democratic principles enshrined in our constitution and the secular fabric of our nation".
The ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) immediately jumped to criticise the letter, calling it a "divisive move" and saying it was akin to calling people to vote along communal lines. BJP President Amit Shah also condemned the letter and warned people not to mobilise masses on the basis of religion. Giriraj Singh, a senior minister of the BJP government who is known for his controversial statementsabout India's minority communities, responded to the letter by saying "every action has a reaction". If the archbishop asked his people to pray, people from other religions would also start praying in their own way, he said.
The only Christian minister in the central cabinet, K J Alphons, said the archbishop was not the entire church and was an "isolated voice" in the community. Calling the letter "unfair to the government", he advised the bishop that "Godmen should stay away from politics".
Home Minister Rajnath Singh also felt compelled to respond to the letter, and claimed that India is a country where "there was no discrimination on the basis of religion". Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the parent body of the BJP, also criticised the archbishop's call to prayer. Prominent RSS ideologue Rakesh Sinha called the letter "a direct interference of the Vatican in the affairs of India" and said that it was an affront to the secular character of India.
It was interesting to see the BJP and the RSS treat the letter as an attack on the government. The letter does not mention the BJP nor does it mention the current government. The only thing the letter does talk about is the "turbulent political atmosphere" in the country.

'Inciting religious hatred'

The archbishop's letter was not the only statement that has been issued by concerned Indian Christians in the past month. Barely a week after Archbishop Couto's letter became public, the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC)  put out a statement condemning the appointment of a known RSS man - Kummanam Rajasekharan - as a governor of Mizoram, which is a Christian-dominated state.
"Christians in Mizoram in particular, and those of the country in general, feel disturbed and very much let down after the appointment of a hardcore Hindutva fundamentalist as the new Governor of Mizoram where 87 percent of people are Christians," the Council said. The organisation also alleged that Rajasekharan's appointment was "a deliberate move" to create disharmony in a state "that has won awards in the last few years for being the most peaceful state in the country".

There are now fears that both the archbishop's letter and the GCIC's statement could be used by the BJP to further polarise Hindus in forthcoming elections in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. In the past, BJP officials presented such letters and statements as evidence of an international conspiracy against a party that defends Hindu interests.
Last November, prior to the Gujarat state assembly elections, Archbishop Thomas Macwan of the Archdiocese of Gandhinagar issued a letter calling parish priests to organise prayer sessions to help people "who would remain faithful to the Indian constitution" get elected. BJP treated the letter as a call to vote against it, and a BJP leader even called for the archbishop's arrest for "inciting religious hatred".
In India, participation in politics of Hindu godmen and women is seen as normal, but when Muslim or Christian religious personalities speak on politics, they are accused of dividing people. The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is the head of an old and very powerful Gorakhnath Math (temple) in Gorakhpur. There are ministers and members of parliament who themselves claim to be godmen and women and yet are seen as fit for office within the secular polity of India.

Increasing discrimination against minorities 

The letter of Archbishop Cauto needs to be seen in the context of the growing anxiety and unrest religious minority communities of India have been feeling.
In a column for the Times of India, Julio Ribeiro, a retired police commissioner and well-respected Christian public figure, voiced the concerns of many when he wrote: "I should be prepared for second class citizenship that denies top jobs like that of a judge in the Supreme Court, a governor of a state, the chief of defence staff or the intelligence bureau. What I will not accept is being accused falsely of being anti-national and pilloried on that count."
In this year's Open Door World Watch List, which ranks the 50 countries in which Christians face the worst persecution for practising their faith, India came 11th. The country was ranked 31st in the same list only five years ago. According to the United Christian Forum (UCF), more than 700 cases of attacks on Christians across India were reported to their toll-free helpline number between 2014 and 2017.
The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian NGO, publishes a periodical report on the cases of discrimination or attacks against Christians in India. In its 2017 report, the organisation said: "According to a statement made by the Government in the Indian Parliament on the 7th of Feb. 2017 over the last three years, over 278 persons have been killed, and over 6,500 people were injured due to communal violence in over 2000 incidents". 
According to the ADF, discriminatory incidents and hate crimes experienced by Christians in India include cases of Ghar Wapsi (religious conversion activities), refusal to grant permission to establish and run places of worship, false accusations of forceful and fraudulent religious conversions, physical and verbal assaults on church pastors and members, false and divisive propaganda, damage, desecration and arson of places of worship, disruption of prayer services and restrictions on religious gatherings.
Moreover, BJP leaders and ministers regularly invoke anti-Muslim and anti-Christian symbolism to garner Hindu support. Representatives of the ruling party repeatedly talk about Muslims outnumbering Hindus in India or Christian missionaries luring poor people to their fold through their educational institutions. After creating sufficient fear within Hindu communities, they suggest that they can be the voice and protector of Hindus in India.

In his public addresses, Prime Minister Narendra Modi very cleverly uses a language that derides and mocks minorities and presents the Congress and other political parties in India as anti-Hindu forces. In the recently concluded and much discussed parliamentary by-election at Kairana, Uttar Pradesh, BJP representatives used a similar "us vs them" discourse, pitting Hindus against Muslims to garner votes.

Many members of minority communities in India, as well as many secular Indians, believe that if the BJP wins next year's general election, the subversion of the institutionally secular character of India would be complete.
This is why opposition parties are keeping their ideological differences aside and trying to forge a grand alliance. The letter of the archbishop needs to be read and judged in this context.
Catholic archbishop's letter incensed India's BJP and he's RIGHT on the dot. Modi and his BJP cohorts are indiscriminately maligning the rights of the minority religious faiths. Beatings of Christians, non action of the authorities to these criminal  activities, etc. VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE!!!

US Warns Of “Firm” Response If Syria Attacks ISIS

US Warns Of “Firm” Response If Syria Attacks ISIS … No, Really

In an apparent attempt to remove all pretense that the United States is nothing more than al-Qaeda’s Air Force in Syria, the American government is warning its Syrian counterpart that, if the SAA moves ahead with its upcoming southern offensive to remove ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists from its southern borders, the U.S. will take “firm and appropriate measures.
In other words, the United States is telling Syria that it had better not attack ISIS forces or else. Indeed, American “Firm and appropriate measures” seems like a very thinly veiled threat of military action particularly since the United States seems incapable of taking any “measures” that aren’t “kinetic” in nature outside of its borders.
After liberating the Yarmouk camp south of Damascus and quickly liberating a stretch of territory between Homs and Aleppo, the Syrian military is building up forces in the south of the country in a much anticipated move to liberate Daraa and the surrounding areas bordering with Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan.
Of course, while no one who has been following the Syrian crisis would be surprised that the nation who funded, organized, trained, armed, and directed terrorist forces in Syria (including ISIS), would do whatever it could to protect its proxy army, it is rather surprising to see the U.S. government so openly state that ISIS terrorists are “off limits” and to do away with even the formalities of pretending that it wants to see Daesh destroyed. As al-Masdar News reports,
The US State Department issued a statement late Friday saying it was “concerned” by leaflets, which were reportedly dropped by government aircraft in the province of Daraa.
According to reports circulating among pro-opposition monitors, the leaflets called on the militants to stop fighting and reconcile with the Syrian government, otherwise they would allegedly “gamble their lives” and head to “inevitable death.”
“We also caution the Syrian regime against any actions that risk broadening the conflict or jeopardize the ceasefire,” said spokeswoman Heather Nauert, noting that the ceasefire had been reaffirmed by Washington and Moscow last November. “As a guarantor of this de-escalation area with Russia and Jordan, the United States will take firm and appropriate measures in response to Assad regime violations,” she added.
The fact is that the United States is watching its plan to destroy the Syrian government fail before its very eyes. Now, it is moving to enact “Plan B,” aka the “federalization” of Syria into “microstates” to the benefit of Atlanticist geopolitical goals and the regional positioning of Israel. In order to do so, it is necessary to keep as many terrorist elements inside Syria as possible in order to keep the Syrian government under constant pressure and ensure the delineation of ethnic/religious boundaries. The presence of ISIS in southern Syria also gives the United States a reason to remain in Syria since it claims its presence in the country revolves around the destruction of ISIS. Of course, even that reason would not change the fact that the American presence is entirely illegal.
As the US becomes more and more desperate to overthrow Assad and/or partition the country, its military action is becoming more and more reckless and its public statements are becoming more and more open as to where its allegiances lie.
But speaking of lying … It is unfortunate that the average attention span of the average Westerner is so short. If it were longer, Americans might remember when the US government told them:
  1. The US opposes all terrorism and is engaged in a war against terror.
  2. The US wants stability in the Middle East.
  3. Assad is a brutal dictator who kills his own people.
  4. Syrians hate Assad.
  5. The “rebels” were all democracy loving peaceful protesters.
  6. The “rebels” were violent only in reaction to a horrific crackdown by the Syrian military.
  7. The “rebels” were democracy loving freedom fighters. There were no terrorist elements.
  8. The “rebels” were overwhelmingly democracy loving freedom fighters with some jihadist elements who had infiltrated their ranks.
  9. The “rebels” were Syrian.
  10. The “rebels” were mostly jihadists but had moderate elements.
  11. The “rebels” were jihadists but better than ISIS.
  12. The US is not involved in Syria.
  13. The US is not supporting rebels.
  14. The US is in Syria to “defeat ISIS.”
Now, we have come full circle and the United States is openly threatening conflagration in support of ISIS/al-Qaeda, the very terrorist organization which was used to justify the elimination of vast amounts of civil liberties for American citizens domestically.
In 2001, Americans were told to shred their constitutional rights and accept a police state due to an alleged attack by al-Qaeda. In 2018, Americans are told to be ready to risk a third world war to protect al-Qaeda. It appears the State Department is now reading George Orwell’s works as a script writing model.
For US the ends justify the means - TIME the US stop this evil - first creating ISIS, and protecting them. This is sickening - let the LORD God move and end the evil behavior and attitude of the elite and those in power. Evil begats evil! Let God judge!!!

UK government protecting Muslim pedophiles - jailed journalist Tommy Robinson

Citizen journalist Tommy Robinson jailed under secret order from UK government; total media blackout issued to protect Muslim pedophiles

Natural News) UK citizen journalism Tommy Robinson, who has worked tirelessly to expose the Muslim pedophile and sex trafficking rings in the UK, has been arrested and jailed under a Soviet-style secret order from the UK government which then issued a total media blackout order to the press.
It is now a crime in the UK to report on Tommy Robinson’s arrest and imprisonment. Word is still getting out through independent media sources like InfoWars, which has interviewed Robinson’s camera man, who explained that the entire court prosecution of Robinson took “mere minutes,” after which Robinson was convicted and thrown in prison for 13 months, just hours after his arrest.
There was no time for any proper legal defense, no time to present evidence, not even time to make a counter argument. The corrupt UK court system, which turns out to be just as corrupt as the UK government, simply declared Robinson a criminal and threw him in jail. Within hours, a follow-up order went out to the media to demand a total blackout of all media coverage. Even Breitbart News pulled its stories about Robinson.
For the record, the UK government is run by criminal pedophiles who rely on Muslim pedo networks to provide a steady supply of nine and ten-year-old little girls and boys to be routinely raped, molested and sexually assaulted by high-level UK judges, legislators and bureaucrats. This is why Robinson is being so aggressively censored in a Soviet-style media blackout and secret court conviction that no media outlet is even allowed to report took place.
The UK — like mush of Western Europe — is currently in the process of being overrun by Muslims. The UK government is complicit in the scheme and has now criminalized anyone criticizing Muslims, even for running child trafficking networks that provide “fresh meat” to corrupt UK government officials.
Visit TommyRobinson.online for more information about Robinson, and watch these InfoWars videos for more breaking news:

UK has become a satanic nation just behind the USA. Let the people of UK take note and vote this evil lawmakers out of office!

LGBT crap Woman proud that her 3-year-old godson is “openly gay”

Woman proud that her 3-year-old godson is “openly gay” … do infants even know what GAY means?


Image: More left-wing nonsense: Woman proud that her 3-year-old godson is “openly gay” … do infants even know what GAY means?
 
(Natural News) A Filipino woman who shamelessly exploited her three-year-old godson on social media by posting family photos of him and proclaiming to the world that he “openly” identifies as being “gay” has suddenly removed all such content and made her Twitter page private after being called out by thousands of social media users for her child-abusive tendencies.
Caren Penaso, whose Twitter page as of this writing has her listed as a secretary for the Filipino sports organization “PAKUSGANAY,” apparently coordinated with the LGBT media outlet PRIDE back in April to tell the “heartwarming” story of her “openly gay” three-year-old nephew, named RJ.
The PRIDE article telling Penaso’s tale about her godson has since been deleted, but is still available for viewing on the Internet Archive website Archive.org.
The now-archived piece explains how Caren believes that her godson, who is still about 10 years away from going through puberty, somehow already knows that he’s “gay,” and that she’s just so excited about this. She apparently told PRIDE that the boy loves to play with dolls and likes to dress up in a mermaid outfit – which automatically means that he’s sexually attracted to other little boys, apparently.
Caren’s pedophile-like sexualization of her innocent godson throughout the PRIDE piece was immediately decried by thousands of concerned people almost immediately after its publishing. PRIDE also apparently got an earful from some of the more normal elements of society, seeing as how it not only published the story but also glamorized it.

After sustaining this barrage of chastisement, Caren proceeded to try to play the victim, claiming that her critics were “killing the positive vibe,” and that it’s all about allowing RJ to live his life “freely & happily” – which in her world apparently means supporting and likely encouraging a baby to believe that he’s a homosexual.
“Guys come on!” Caren whined on her Twitter page on April 16 in a post responding to her critics. “Regardless if he knows what it takes to be gay or not, he is happy and he is proud. AND we love him no matter what.”

LGBT mafia perverts always blame others whenever they’re rightfully called out for their wickedness

This twisting of the situation is typical of liberals, who whenever they’re called out for their vile, amoral behavior proceed to blame their accusers of such. It was Caren, and not her critics, who made the decision to broadcast to the world that her godson’s innocent fun somehow equates to wanting to have sexual relations with other males, after all – which is similar to what Disney is now doing with its release of LGBT “pride ears” for innocent children.
It’s sickening and disgusting what this woman did – and it’s perhaps even worse that PRIDE used words like “adorableness” and “cute” to describe this woman’s perversion. Both PRIDE and Caren should be held to account for this blatant act of child abuse, and yet both are predictably claiming victimhood.
PRIDE has since replaced the now-deleted and archived article with an announcement stating that it was removed because of “homophobic abuse and bullying of a three-year old.” Caren also put up a short note, not apologizing for sexually exploiting her godson, but claiming to be a victim of “hate messages” when all she did was tweet with “pure intention” about her godson.
She further contorted the scenario by stating that she shouldn’t have ever posted pictures of her godson online and made a story out of his alleged “gayness” with the help of PRIDE– again, not because it’s inherently wrong, which it is, but because Caren believes it was her job to “protect him from being bullied.”
“There’s no point in fighting with close-minded [sic] people,” Caren wrote, lacking any remorse whatsoever for her own personal wickedness that was the true cause of this heinous fiasco

 LGBT crap - Woman proud that her 3-year-old godson is “openly gay” These LGBT people should get tarred n feathered. Why are they so proud to be gay, they are sickos - ought to be caged in mental asylums. NO ONE IS BORN GAY. THEY CHOOSE TO BE GAY!!!  

Is Monsanto going down like Big Tobacco? Expose and eliminate Monsanto!

Is Monsanto going down like Big Tobacco? FAKE SCIENCE about to be exposed on a global scale

Image: Is Monsanto going down like Big Tobacco? FAKE SCIENCE about to be exposed on a global scale
(Natural News) Monsanto is showing some clear signs that they’re getting nervous as their dishonest practices come significantly closer to being brought to light on a grand scale.
Last week, the peer-reviewed manuscripts of the pilot phase of a study known as the Global Glyphosate Study were revealed at a European Parliament press conference, and it’s all bad news for the maker of the world’s most popular glyphosate herbicide, Roundup.
In the short-term pilot study, glyphosate-based herbicides were shown to change some very important biological parameters in rats at exposure to the level set by the Environmental Protection agency as “safe” of 1.75 mg/kg per day. Some of the parameters that were altered relate to sexual development, the intestinal microbiome and genotoxicity. The papers will be published in the Environmental Health journal later this month.
One author of the report, Daniele Mandrioli, said that they found glyphosate in the gut bacteria of rats born to mothers who weren’t affected by it, something he believes is remarkable. He pointed out that gut microbiome disruptions have been linked to problems like diabetes, obesity, and immunological problems.
Another researcher, Professor Philip J. Landrigan, said that these findings should be investigated further in comprehensive long-term studies given their potential to impact a significant number of people around the world.

Monsanto goes on the attack

Monsanto reacted exactly how you’d expect them to react, by attacking the scientists and institutions involved in the study. The firm’s global strategy vice president, Scott Partridge, told The Guardian that The Ramazzini Institute is an “activist organization with an agenda that they have not disclosed.”
It’s an unsubstantiated claim in any event, and it’s also worth noting that the Global Glyphosate Study was carried out by many other bodies in addition to The Ramazzini Institute, such as the Italian National Institute of Health, George Washington University, the Icahn School of Medicine at New York’s Mount Sinai, the University of Bologna, and the Genoa Hospital San Martino. Of course, they won’t be able to attack all of those institutes, so they decided to single one out.
In fact, The Ramazzini Institute is a well-respected institution manned by expert scientists for more than four decades. Their goal is to protect public health, and their activities relate to finding carcinogens and evaluating the safety and efficacy of drugs and ingredients. Their long-term studies have a lot of clout, with past research on benzene, vinyl chloride, and formaldehyde leading to changes in global regulations.
One thing that makes the Ramazzini studies so respected is the fact their design mirrors humans very closely. For example, they tend to follow rodents from prenatal life and observe them until their natural death; most labs “sacrifice” rats about two thirds of the way through their lifespan, which equates to around age 60 in humans. Many people develop cancers later in life, so other researchers miss those cancers that tend to show up in old age.

Glyphosate is everywhere

As the most common herbicide in the world, 18.9 billion pounds of glyphosate have been spread across the planet since 1974. Its use has risen 15-fold since the introduction of genetically modified crops, even though they were initially marketed as being able to reduce the need for herbicide. In the last two decades, the levels of glyphosate found in the human bloodstream have risen by more than 1,000 percent.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer classified the chemical as a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015; Monsanto is now trying to campaign against them and stop the American government from funding them. Now, it looks like the respected institutions involved in the latest study to expose the dangers of their products will also be targeted by their smear campaigns.
Is Monsanto going down like Big Tobacco? Expose and eliminate Monsanto before the whole EARTH is contaminated with their glyphosate poison and GMOs. These wicked and sick people harm us and the world and at the same time make tons of money. Get the whole world to act against them, Penalize n fine them. Bring litigations, lawsuits, and most of ALL - BOYCOTT their products, also boycott the stores, shops that sell these items.

Vote Narendra Modi out i 2109


Will Modi's popularity hold out for next year's India elections?

Narendra Modi's combative tone has won him legions of admirers but a unifying opposition is confident the prime minister is on his way out.

New Delhi, India - Just as he marked four years in office, Narendra Modi bowed on Saturday in front of supporters at a huge rally of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the eastern Indian state of Odisha, thanking them for their "unwavering faith"
One year before India's next general election, that faith in the prime minister appears to be largely intact, as opinion polls conducted by local TV channels this week have shown.
Even more right-wing than all previous BJP leaders, Modi's combative tone when dealing with his political opponents has both unnerved rivals and won him legions of admirers.

In 2014, he swept to power on a surge of nationalist sentiment and populist rhetoric, with BJP securing 31 percent of the vote and winning 282 seats, 10 more than the majority required - the biggest winning mandate in three decades.
Modi's rise made many, including India's liberal left and minorities, uneasy.
His earlier career was dogged by allegations that in 2002, when he was chief minister of Gujarat state, did not do enough to stop religious riots which killed more than 1,000 Muslims.
But Modi's big winning margin in the last elections was at least partly due to widespread dislike of his rivals, and especially the scandal-hit Congress Party, which won only 44 seats.

Economic promises

Prior to his election in 2014, Modi had vowed seismic changes to Indians' way of living and doing business, pledging to shake up the moribund economy and eliminate corruption.
One of the key challenges for the Modi administration was to jump-start growth after a belligerent campaign that promised Achche Din (Good Days).
Investors had hoped that the BJP would embark on a round of new reforms to boost growth - but many commentators have pointed out there wasn't much of that.
"The prime minister's tenure has been marked by tepid reform and world-class policy errors," wrote economic analyst Mihir Sharma.
Modi's high-risk decision last November to scrap high-value banknotes was an unpopular drive but was presented by the ruling party as an anti-corruption measure.
The shoddy implementation of a nation-wide sales tax also upset the trading community.
He has also failed to deal with one of India's biggest challenges: generate employment for millions of Indians who enter the workforce every year.


He had vowed to create jobs for 10 million youth each year but he is falling woefully short.  India's jobless rate was around 7.25 percent during the first fortnight of April, compared to five percent in January, the highest monthly rate in the past 15 months, data from the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy showed.

'All slogans, no work'

None of these shortcomings, however, have translated into palpable anger against the BJP at the polls in various states.
Experts pointed to this as proof of Modi's personal equity with voters at large.
But the opposition Congress party says the prime minister is on his way out.
"Four years ago, the people of India removed a samajhdaar (wise) prime minister and elected a chatur (clever) prime minister instead," senior Congress Party leader and former commerce minister Kamal Nath tells Al Jazeera.
"But now we have seen that he has not kept any of his promises. It's all slogans and no work."
The optimism for a better showing at next year's polls comes as India's fragmented opposition appears to be finally unifying after repeated trouncing at the polls.
This was evident earlier this week at the swearing-in ceremony of a recently-elected alliance comprising of Congress Party and regional Janata Dal party in the southern state of Karnataka.
The ruling party dismissed the joint opposition show of unity as grandstanding.

Foreign policy focus

Modi's major focus during his time in office has been foreign policy.
Critics, however, have described it as inward-looking - he is selling India to Indians, they say, and not to the world.
Modi received a rapturous welcome from thousands of adoring Indian-Americans at New York's Madison Square Garden in 2014. He held similar shows in the UKSingapore and Australia
He has famously hugged almost all world leaders he interacted with, including US President Donald Trump.
But despite a much-publicised affinity between the two, Washington has berated Delhi over a trade imbalance and slapped hefty import tariffs on India's steel and aluminium exports.
Trump has also made work visas for Indians in the information technology harder to get. He is also denying the spouses of temporary Indian workers to be employed while in the US.

The Modi administration's high-handedness has also alienated India's allies in the neighbourhood - from tiny Nepal and Sri Lanka to the Maldives and  Mauritius.
Before becoming prime minister, Modi had lambasted the previous government for a weak stance towards China - an approach he has now reversed as is evident from his informal China trip where he spent hours talking to Chinese President Xi Jinping on a boat ride, in what was officially described as an "agenda-less visit".

Relation with press

But Modi's tenure has also further emboldened hardline Hindu factions close to his party while isolating Muslims and other minorities.
While mob attacks on people accused of killing cows or eating beef and assaults against lower-caste Dalits have made regular headlines, the prime minister himself has kept a troubling silence.
Human Rights Watch, a US-based rights group, has accused the Modi government of failing to protect the country's minorities.
There has also been a rise in attacks against journalists and India has slipped in press freedom rankings.
Modi has had a complex relationship with the press. He has not held a single press conference during his tenure, while journalists have complained about intimidation aimed at stopping stories critical of him.

'New India'?

Yet, his domestic support base seems to be as devoted as ever, drawn to his skilled oratory and far-right ideals. 
BJP's re-election next years is "not a challenge but a certainty," BJP party chief Amit Shah said on Saturday in a press conference in Delhi.
Analysts, however, say Modi has failed to win over new supporters compared to the last election.

"Don't forget, Modi was elected only by 31 percent of the voters. Now that there is some sort of unity between India's many opposition parties, their combined voter base would prove to be a handful for Modi in the 2019 election. He has alienated many sections of the society," senior journalist and author Saeed Naqvi told Al Jazeera.
Vote Narendra Modi out in 2109. This man has done nothing to stem human rights abuses done by radical Hindus to the minority classes. Muslims and Christians brutally beaten yet he does nothing to end it. And he is influenced or controlled by outside forces - the Illuminati  - introducing the Mark of the Beast (RFID in the human body). Slowly but surely  he is gearing up INDIA to come under their control, like in the EU nations.
