CAIR ensures Indian leader denied U.S. visa

Ain’t this the pot calling the kettle black?

CAIR pre-emptively ensuring people they don’t like cannot get visas to enter the U.S. – even though the U.S. says he never even applied for a visa. The grounds which CAIR makes their claim? Religion. Read more to find out.

From Islamic Terrorism in India blog:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today sent a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice asking that an Indian official accused of complicity in the massacre of Muslim civilians in that nation again be denied a visa to travel to the U.S. Recent news reports indicate that supporters of Narendra Modi, chief minister of India’s state of Gujarat, hope to have him attend the upcoming second World Gujarati Conference in Edison, N.J., on August 29-31, 2008.

In 2005, CAIR partnered with the Indian Muslim Council-USA and the Coalition Against Genocide (CAG) to oppose Modi’s visa request to travel to the U.S. to speak at a convention in Florida. His request for a visa was denied.

In a letter to Secretary Rice, CAIR National Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed wrote in part “If a visa application is made for Chief Minister Modi, we request that it be denied on grounds similar to the Department of State’s visa denial in early 2005. Specifically, we request that if Modi requests a visa he be ruled inadmissible to the United States based on Section 604 of the International Religious Freedom Act, which bars entry to any foreign official who has engaged in ‘particularly severe violations of religious freedom.’”

World Gujarati meet starts in US without visa-less Modi

Matthew Reynold, the acting Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs, also added: “We have thoroughly searched Department records and located no current nonimmigrant visa applications for Mr Modi. However, should we receive an application, we assure you it will be adjudicated in strict accordance with the Immigration and Naturalization Act, including Section 212(a)(2)(G) which states that ‘any alien who, while serving as a foreign government official, was responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom, as defined in section 3 of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (22 U.S.C 6402) is inadmissible.'”

Apparently Iran’s president and other Muslim officials are not held to the same standards. CAIR wasn’t up in arms about Mahmoud A. coming to the U.S. even though he repeatedly states he will wipe Israel off the map. Nor has anyone revoked CAIR’s license for supporting terrorist groups like Hamas and Hizbollah. The double standard, and silence, is frightening.

The Coalition now claims that a total of 32 US Lawmakers have so far written letters to the State Department expressing concern over human rights abuses in Gujarat and urging the denial of US visa to Modi. Coalition members have also had “detailed meetings” with the foreign policy and human rights legislative aides to 11 Senators, including presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, the CAG said.

All that attention to one Indian leader – no attention to countries who actively promote Islamic violence and hatred against the U.S. No support from Obama on those issues.

But within the Gujarati community, Modi is becoming larger than life with each episode of alleged visa denial. He is greeted like a rock star in his live video appearances. Privately, community leaders chafe at the perceived insults and wonder what the US will do if Modi becomes the Prime Minister of India some day, as many of them hope he will.

“This has gone on for too long. At the end of the day, he’s an elected representative of a state and he has been re-elected. The US should respect that we should all move forward,” says Mike Patel, a founder member of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), which also plans to invite Modi to its conference in Washington DC next March.

  1. This both confirms and endorses the fact that America is already islamised and awaiting official confirmation.

    If only the American people would get off their TV, American Idol, and pay attention to their fast eroding freedom and way of life, they are already set for slaughter and slavery.

  5. Hey Dolores,

    Betwen the nature of your request (above) itself and the illiterate way you presented it (Do you not know what capital letters are for? And yet you’re a… professor?? At an actual college???), you have just provided another shining example of the stunning idiocy of those living in the priviledged remove of academia! So absorbed were you in your political correctness about preventing an elected Indian official into Canada that you didn’t even bother look at this website carefully enough to notice that it is entirely OPPOSED to CAIR. Perhaps some kind reader of this site will start updating you by email (d.chew@marianopolis.edu) or by phone (514.931.8792 x Ext. 381) on the looming perils posed by CAIR’s influence. (P.S. I see in the picture of you on the Montreal Mirror’s website that you were not wearing a hijab, naqib, abaya, burka or chadour for your photograph. Not to worry though. The religious police only give 250 lashes for such an offense! ;-) )
