India deserves a Nobel in hypocrisy

India’s attitude over humanitarian issues is a prime example of hypocrisy. The neighboring country is being praised by some circles in international media for its kind gesture of extending support to Bangladesh for sharing the ‘humanitarian burden’ from the Rohingya crisis.

Bangladesh has received a huge influx of Rohingya refugees who fled their homes after anti-Muslim extremism aggravated in Myanmar. According to sources, India is has not only provided financial assistance for helping refugees, but is also schooling the rest of the world to step forward to ease Bangladesh’s burden.

According to reports from 26th Asian Regional Forum, India and Bangladesh are collaborating on projects related to military, energy, infrastructure, transport, trade and working on improving strategic relationships and people-to-people interaction between the two neighbors, for the welfare of the region. India’s support towards Bangladesh through aid in managing Rohingya refugees is a latest addition to this collaboration.

Ironically, the country which is lending assistance to help Rohingya refugees and to facilitate their safe return to their homes, is on the other side attacking residential areas with cluster bombs and mass killing unarmed civilians. India has recently deployed a huge force, consisting of more than 38 thousand armed men, in Kashmir. India’s human right violations are not just limited to Indian Occupied Kashmir, but its atrocities in Azad Kashmir, where it is targeting residential areas by bombing, are increasing too.

India deserves a Nobel in hypocrisy after showing such deceptiveness and two-faced attitude towards human lives.
