Politician Wants India To Snap Ties With Israel

Some days back I had read a small news item in The Times of India that read: Lok Janshakti Party headed by Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan staged a demonstration against Israel’s attacks in Gaza and submitted a memorandum to the President demanding that India sever relationships with the country. The reason for this suggestion is that the meticulously planned attacks on Gaza are nothing short of terror unleashed on the vast humanity of Gaza where hundreds of innocent, including children have been killed and thousands maimed. The party said that India as a responsible democracy should not only condemn this act of aggression by Israel, but immediately sever all diplomatic ties with it. The news item made me pause and ask a few questions to myself (since Mr. Paswan himself was not available to answer them). Did anyone demand that India snap ties with other countries when: India was attacked by 10 heavily armed terrorists on 26.11.2008 and it has been proven to everyone that they were Pakistani nationals. It is also being said that they received training from the Pak army and the ISI. It is a well established fact that Pakistan has been fomenting terrorist strikes against India. In this attack more than 200 innocent people died which included children. Why have the politicians not asked the Indian government to sever ties with Pakistan, when it is also clear to all that the government in Pakistan is not even giving lip service to our anguish leave alone act on it. Attacks on India by Pakistan and the terrorist outfits sponsored by it have been far too many...
