USA hate crime: Innocent Indian killed

The hate crimes are on the rise in USA. The latest victim Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an Indian national was shoot dead by a racist. Srinivas Kuchibhotla wife Sunayana Dumala “feared hate crime”. Dumala said, “I was like, ‘Srini, will we be safe in this country? I’m so worried. I think hate crimes will be more open now. Will it be safe for us to go to the mall? For us to go to [the] office?’”.

The former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton demanded that President Donald Trump should speak out against hate crimes. Clinton tweeted “With threats & hate crimes on rise, we shouldn't have to tell @POTUS to do his part. He must step up & speak out,”.

The words of Dumala and Clinton paint a clear picture of hate crimes in USA.

Trump and his promises

US President Donald Trump successfully created a brand that attracted disillusioned American voters during recent election campaign. Trump made promises which no politician could have made during the election campaign. 

One of his promises was to build a wall along with Mexican border. Trump has signed the orders for the building of wall. The other promise was to ban Muslims from entering USA. Trump has signed an order banning citizens of seven Muslim majority countries from entering USA. These countries include Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The history shows that the West has always picked people from weak countries for the purpose of persecution. It is hard to imagine that Trump will start confrontation with China in the South China Sea or impose 45% tariffs on goods impored from China. Trump has already shown his intentions of cosy relationship Russia which is a powerful country.

Automation: Unemployment in the West

Politicians in the West are trying to keep people in dark. The Westrrn politicians are trying to deceive people instead of educating them about pros and cons of automation. In recent elections in USA politicians told people that they would bring jobs back and create more jobs.
             
However, there will be a net loss of five million jobs in fifteen major developed and emerging economies due to automation in next five years according to the World Economic Forum.

Apparently the Western establishment hasn't learned any lesson from Brexit and victory of Donald Trump in US elections.

USA: a democracy or a fascist regime

Hate crimes, xenophobia, islamophobia, warmongering, ultra nationalism, climate change denialism and economic mismanagement is on the rise in USA for a long time. It is easy to blame US President Elect, Donald Trump for this phenomena. However, this is a long term trend which finds its roots in colonialism. The Western elites perpetuated racism in all policies.

During recent election campaign Trump said the US election was being "rigged" by a "corrupt media" At another occasion he said,"it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system".

The false sense of superiority entrenched in the Western psyche is the root cause of perpetual racism in the West. The existence of slavery and its consequences are still hounding the West in general and USA in particular. Universities don't have enough students from minorities but jails are full of offenders from  minority groups.

The West is going to learn its lessons in a hard way. Continued decay in the economic, social and political life of the West will bring its eventual demise. It is too late to turn the wheel of the time. The so called democracy in the West is showing its true face through the rise of fascism.

USA election: Who will be the next failed President

No matter who wins election in USA, one thing is sure that American people will be the losers. People will lose due to America's two party “dictatorship”. Presidential candidates Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump lack credibility. They are a product of USA's political system which has failed miserably.

The new president will not resolve the issues of anemic economic growth, chronic unemployment, declining real wages, rich poor gap, global warming, underfunded educational sector, decaying health sector, racism, Islamophobia, crimes, guns and drugs.

The issue of drugs is related with wars and terrorism. Same is the case with oil industry which is causing global warming. Demand for oil from USA and its allies is also causing wars in different parts of the world. USA will keep relying on arms and oil industries to boost its ailing economy. Hence, USA will remain a major player in causing wars and global warming.
                                    
A new name will be added after elections in the growing list of failed presidents in USA. The American political system is becoming a major source of instability and danger in the world because it has failed to serve its own people. American people will eventually over throw this rotten system. The rise of Trump is an indication of public anger towards this system.

Kashmir: Modi’s biggest political blunder

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi has squandered of his political asset in Kashmir. Modi’s gamble in Kashmir has backfired. He tried to please right wing extremist by introducing draconian policies in Kashmir. These policies encourage Indian soldiers to kill more than a hundred unarmed civilians. Hundreds of people including children lost their eyesight due to pellet guns fired by Indian army. Thousands of protesters were injured.

On the other hand, powerful Indian business lobby wants to handle the issue of Kashmir and relations with Pakistan in an amicable way. Indian business lobby wants to access Europe, Middle East, the Central Asia and Africa through Pakistan.

It seems that Modi is heeding to business lobby. After the drama of surgical strikes, Modi did not act like Donald Trump anymore. Indian opposition parties exposed Modi’s claims that India conducted surgical strikes in Azad (Pakistani administered) Kashmir. Pakistan refuted Indian claims of surgical strikes. Indian opposition parties are still waiting for proves of so called surgical strikes from Modi.

Modi is playing with the lives of innocent Kashmiri civilians for political gain. But, Indian opposition parties are not allowing Modi to use Kashmir for domestic political gains. Sacrifices of freedom loving Kashmiri people are reaping rewards. The international community acknowledges the right of self-determination of Kashmiri people.

Kashmir: Hypocrisy of the West

The West as usual is trying to ignore the human rights violation by India in Indian occupied Kashmir. More than hundred unarmed civilians have been killed by the Indian Army. Thousands have been injured. Hundreds of young people and children have lost their eyesight due to firing of pellet guns by Indian soldiers. 
          
Curfew has been imposed for months in Indian occupying forces in Kashmir. Yet, there is no or very little condemnation of Indian state sponsored terrorism in occupied Kashmir. Innocent unarmed civilians are being killed by India on daily basis for months. However, this bloodshed is not enough to awake the West. The Western hypocrisy is obvious in case of innocent Kashmiris.
