DOUBLE STANDARDS OF WESTERNERS
Our minority controlled media and the treacherous western media, made a lot of noise when India banned the screening of India’s daughter. BBC is shameless so also the Oxford University. INDIAN SECULARS SUPPORTED THE BBC, IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
See the arrogance – they speak about freedom of speech but bans Swamy, fearing, he will expose the whites. SHAME ON UK, SHAME ON INDIAN SECULARS.
I am enclosing a posting from another group, detailing the ban of Swamy and Rajiv.
With best wishes,
Oxford University bars Dr. Subramanian Swamy & Rajiv Malhotra –
Cancels lecture on “India’s Economy” & “Revisionist History”
The Human Rights Act 1998incorporates Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.
[And yet – – – – !!]
‘We are stunned that a leading British University that should be championing free speech and freedom of thought, has taken such a cowardly decision. We cannot allow the appeasement of extremists to stifle cherished values and I fear this decision will reflect very badly on Oxford University and their much publicized “free rigorous thinking” credentials.” Satish K Sharma, General Secretary, National Council of Hindu Temples (UK)
From this surprising cancellation, effectively banning Dr. Swamy and Shri Malhotra from speaking at Oxford University, we might reasonably conclude that the faculty of Oxford University, tasked with the responsibility of educating young impressionable minds, are incapable of communicating by personal example, the fundamental need for observance and protection of Human rights, especially the right to Freedom of Speech.
A statistical review of who has been barred and who has been welcomed may reveal an uncomfortable correlation and point to a persistent phenomenon concerning the clarity of vision and “discrimination-free” credentials of the senior members of the Oxford Academic Faculty, particularly it would seem when the rights being trampled underfoot are those of “brown skinned Hindus”.
OXFORD UNIVERSITY BUCKLES UNDER LEFTIST PRESSURE
24 March 2015
For long I always thought of Oxford University as one of those hallowed sanctuaries where all viewpoints, no matter how eye-popping or scandalous, got acceptance. What else would explain the Oxford Union inviting the likes of far-right politicians like Marine Le Pen, as well as the famed Holocaust denier David Irving?
But my faith in Oxford as a supporter of free thought and speech received a rude jolt on 20 March, when a decision was taken to cancel the lectures on ‘Economic development over the years and new reforms needed to take India forward’ and ‘Rethinking India History based on the book Breaking India: Western Intervention in Dravidian and Dalit fault lines’, by Dr. Subramanian Swamy and Rajiv Malhotra citing “logistical and internal issues”.
The decision was supposed to have been taken after a series of meetings between prominent and influential members of Oxford University’s academic faculty and members of the Oxford India Society.
One interesting fact to notice here is that a petition opposing Subramanian Swamy and Rajiv Malhotra was raised on the popular site change.org, urging the Oxford India Society to cancel the invitation extended to them to speak on the aforementioned topics.
Now are these petitioners actually striving to prevent giving the Oxford platform to people they consider as bigots with extremist views? What are these extremist views these crusaders of decency are trying to prevent?
