Biden administration taking a dangerous path with Modi regime – By Pieter Friedrich
Two months ago, Atul Keshap – who was then temporarily serving as America’s acting Ambassador to India – concluded his tenure with one final act: a visit to the headquarters of the RSS paramilitary…. It was a legitimization and normalization of the world’s oldest, fastest-growing, and most powerful fascist movement….
The US government, however, has long known about the dangers of the RSS…. Under the current regime in India, the Biden administration could take many different small steps: halt arms trading, reduce foreign aid, or even just make conversations about human rights a condition of bilateral talks. Instead, shockingly, it took a huge step in the opposite direction by embracing the source of the present chaos.
…. Where India goes is where South Asia goes, and the rise of the world’s largest fascist State bodes ill for us all. The situation urgently demands not only the utmost concern of all humanitarian-minded people around the world but also deep introspection from the US government about how it will react. However, as genocidal forces are flooding across India right now, time is of the essence, and America must swiftly decide which side of history it will fall on before it is too late.
