For NRIs - do you feel like you belong in the place you now call home?

As American journalist, author and anti-Islam activist Brigitte Gabriel so powerfully put it (at a forum on June 18, 2014, see YouTube), the peaceful majority are irrelevant in this context. When a determined few set out to execute a deadly agenda, the majority have not stood in their way.

Look at history, she says. ‘Most Germans were peaceful; the Nazis drew up an agenda and as a result 60 million people died, 14 million in concentration camps, 6 million of them Jews.

‘The peaceful majority were irrelevant. Look at Russia – most Russians were peaceful as well. Yet the Russians were able to kill 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. Look at China; most Chinese were peaceful as well. Yet the Chinese were able to kill 70 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. Look at Japan prior to World War II; most Japanese were peaceful too. Yet the Japanese were able to butcher their way across Asia, killing 12 million people – most were killed with bayonets and shovels. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.’

‘On September 11, 2001, we had 2.3 million Arabs living in the US; it took 19 radicals to bring America down to its knees: destroy the World Trade Centre, attack the Pentagon and kill almost 3,000 Americans that day. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.’

 

Not irrelevant for government agencies, but irrelevant for how an NRI feels about a community.

The Surrey, BC mention reminded me of when we were there 4 yrs ago while visiting Seattle/Vancouver. Absolute best parathas and MdR/SdS at Aggarwal sweets. Unforgettable taste.

Here in ICF, you have to qualify what BC means. It sounds like profanity, if someone didn’t know you :laugh1: Some people might take umbrage

Man india so freaking hot as well even after summer. The people in cities are getting high electric bills to pay for the welfare schemes for the poor. Bjp govt stopped giving funds to phd students as well. People are being squeezed only the hardworking ones don’t know why someone will stay back in India or go back to India on top of reservations if you are hardworking middle class person. Don’t forget the rumor mill on India as well. Indian society is mean as well doesn’t take any kindness whatsoever it’s all transactional nowadays.
