Mr.Kaplan wants apologies from Narendra Modi

Demonize, Genocide - and apologize

Demonize, Genocide - and apologize ...

In a remarkable three terms as chief minister, he (Narendra Modi) has never apologized, has never demonstrated regret of any sort for 2002; He (Narendra Modi) can’t or won’t apologize for 2002. (via India’s New Face – The Atlantic (April 2009italics mine).

What an idea, Sirjee!!

Are you suggesting Kaplanbhai, that Mr.Modi can get away with the Gujarat riots, by making a proforma apology? You mean, Bhai-Kaplan, Narendra Modi should make an apology – like the false apologies, made or not made, after the genocide of Jews, Native Americans, or the Roma Gypsies or the Australian aborigines, and then get on with life.

Of all the arguments that Kaplan makes in this rather poor hatchet job on Narendra Modi (but mostly India), this one is the weakest and the worst. What Robert Kaplan has done is use Narendra Modi as a human shield to attack India – secure in the belief that ‘no one will dare defend Narendra Modi’.

You think Indians will accept this from Narendra Modi?

Mr.Kaplan, you don’t know Indians well enough.

These false apologies will have no effect in India. Indians don’t want empty apologies – and will neither render one. Kaplanjee, a common derisive Indian response to apologies is अँगरेज़ तो चले गए लेकिन, येह सॉरी शब्द यहीं छोड़ गए (the English have left, but they have left behind this word sorry).

What Indians will accept is a change – complete and total change in behaviour! Indians will give a second chance to even criminals and robbers – without an apology!!

It appears that the shrinking ad sales is making a difference at The Atlantic. Why would a magazine like The Atalantic send an overrated hack, like Robert D. Kaplan – unless they had money problems.

It has indeed been a long time that I have seen such bad ideas – so well packaged and written.
