    India is a storehouse of "Human Rights Violations" ....they've got so many violations that the UN can't even list them all. And oddly, India ain't doin' a fuckin' thing about them.

    I've also been reading up on police brutality in India ....it's so fuckin' horrendous that it amazes me that Sam can even mention police brutality in other nations of the world (like she constantly does against the USA).

    Political corruption is so bad that India is used as an example for what NOT to do!!

    India is great...if you're upper caste.

    Just don't be a serf untouchable.

    Yes the condition of Dalits in India is terrible. Especially the atrocities they suffer from the established "higher castes"

    http://www.ambedkar.org/crime.htm


    The government is totally useless of course

    The lack of political will for change is the major reason why this system is still prevalent 60 years after Independence.

    Even measures taken by the government in the private,

    and public sector,
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reservation_in_India

    or at policy level
    are clearly only implemented on paper.
    non governmental organisations (NGOs) are pushing for changes in government policy

    http://www.dalits.org/delhidecl.htm

    but there are issues there too.
    Its a complete quagmire.

    i had no idea india was in such a bad shape, maybe its because some indians care for palestinians more then their own country.

    I think it is more because of the poor shape of the American education system.

    Its possible to care about abuse at any level, in any country. Caring for the people of your own country does not exempt/absolve you from caring for people in similar oppressive situations elsewhere.

    Yeah, or perhaps their own nation is so fucked up that they can't look at it every day, so they turn their attentions and efforts to condemn others for anything that they can find!

    People should clean up their own fuckin' homes before they attack others for the dirt in their homes.

    Can you spell ......HIPPO-FUCKIN'-CRITTER?

    Apologist.

    You can see plenty of Indians agitating on behalf of the dalits and the government at least attempts to provide opportunities.

    A far cry from the death squads and School of Americas. No comparison.

    Same thing I do here. Create awareness and campaign for justice.

    Probably because at present they are the worst perpetartors of social injustice at the scale of the government. And they are spreading this poison worldwide.

    Just because YOU think it's "morally corrupt" is no sign that others think so. And here we are again .....back to your bullshit about "morality". What the fuck is that, Spurious??? Just YOUR idea of morality??

    You are blind as a bat if you think nobody thinks the USA is morally corrupt. Wait. I forgot you don't go out much in the big bad world.
