Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have set abuzz the global political scene with their continued bromance for all the world to see. Calling them friends is making the matter too simplistic. They represent two nations which have been embroiled in controversies and both have personal bloody legacies.
While Narendra Modi has kept himself out of direct indictment in the Gujarat Riot case due to sheer power play – where over 1000 people were killed in a day and the Hindu-Muslim relations in India reached an all-time low; Benjamin Netanyahu’s continued atrocities on the people of Palestine make his hands equally bloody, if not more so.
Both, currently hold immense power globally and are counted amongst the most influential leaders. And their friendship is based on weapons – arms to stifle protests – weapons which are traded in the name of security and used to maintain the upper hand in the geopolitical scenario of the nations.
As both, Modi and Netanyahu have risen from the power of death – they have become bosom buddies, as they clearly reflect each other’s mindset.
The cause of Palestine has been receiving step-motherly consideration from the entire world. Those who choose to raise their voice are swiftly silenced.
Why then should India be any different? Why should it not make Israel its ally in the cause of defense, when the threat from Pakistan and China still continues to rage?
But isn’t India also the propounder of peace and secularism? Doesn’t every politician from India showcase that the teaching of Mahatma Gandhi forms the basis of their thoughts?
Narendra Modi and Benjamin Netanyahu are showing the world the face of hypocrisy at its best. While signing defense deals and hugging each other, they are imposing themselves as protectors – but the truth remains that they themselves are the perpetrators of war and hatred and are simply adding ammunition to the cause that they both believe in.
The cause of genocide in the name of religion.
Not competent enough to sit idle and stare as the world goes by, Pallavi is optimistic to a fault and believes in building her world on her own rather than depending on others to make things right.
