Obama “Muslims must be cherished and nurtured…”


 

In case we are bothered once in a while over the tweets that Trump put out, just think what we could have running around in the WH with Hillary and her extension of Obama’s term…. yea, those old tribal instincts of self preservation must be extinguished.

 

NEW DELHI: India needs to “cherish and nurture” its Muslim population, which is integrated and considers itself Indian, former US president Barack Obama has said. It is an idea that needs to be reinforced, he emphasised at an event of a media organisation in New Delhi on Friday.

Obama touched on a host of topics, including his relationship with Narendra Modi and Manmohan Singh during his address and the question-answer session. Obama said he emphasised the need for religious tolerance and the right to practice one’s own faith during closed door talks with PM Modi during his last trip to India in 2015.

Responding to questions, Obama said his comments then were general in nature and he had repeated it in the US as well as in Europe. “There’s a counter narrative taking place, at all times, but it’s particularly pronounced now…

You are seeing it in Europe, you are seeing it in the United States and sometimes you see it in India where those old tribal impulses reassert themselves under leaders who try to push back those impulses and under leaders who try to exploit them,” Obama said.

Replying to a question, Obama spoke of India’s “enormous Muslim population”, which is successful, integrated and thinks of itself as Indian. That is unfortunately not always the case in some other countries, Obama added.

Referring to India, he said, “And that is something that needs to be cherished and nurtured, cultivated. It’s important to continue reinforcing it.” To a separate question, he said Modi’s “impulse” was to recognise the importance of Indian unity. “I think he firmly believes the need for that in order to advance to the great nation status,” Obama said.

    With all of Obama’s deal-making in the world, I hope he doesn’t forget to register as a foreign lobbyist … otherwise, he might have to go to federal court and get a slap on the wrist. In my personal view, Obama would make a perfect center-piece doily for a bouquet of assholes.

    Zero need not worry. Surely India is on a path to cherishing and nurturing its Muslims along with most of the civilized world. Worldwide suicide, who woulda thunk it?
