The pro-resistance leaders across the Line of Control have expressed ‘shock’ and ‘surprise’ over an American court’s judgment sentencing Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai to two years imprisonment . Some of them have termed it ‘unfortunate’. I, for one, would term this kind of response from our resistance leadership as ‘unfortunate’ ‘shocking’ and ‘surprising’. What would you expect from a state that believes in and practices double-standard and flaunts publicly that it has only its “national interests” the permanent friends. Others have to fall as concubines used and thrown when needed. Human rights, liberty ethical values and human dignity , its track record shows, swaps meaning and interpretation when American state’s hegemony experiences a little scratch on its rhinocerean skin.

We have to remember that in a world where commercial interests hold superior to human dignity , geo-politics wears a new look. Don’t we know it is a “golden era”; the Americans are in romance with India at present. Frolicking on the beaches of Indian hospitality , they are fixing head money , never heard for a “untraceable” moving and waking and talking over the ground . In broad day light .in the latest honey-moon the US can do whatever its beloved craves for.
