India, besides being a mobocracy and quotocracy, is a lootocracy. People in power and those who can influence people in power through bribes and other means loot the country. Politicians want to loot the country even after they lose power. When there is criticism of politicians some say â€œDonâ€™t criticize politicians. All are not bad. There are some good politicians.â€ After some demands for privileges by former speakers Purno Albert Sangma and Somnath Chatterjee it seems no good politician is left.
On 22/6/2011 on NDTV 24×7â€™s Left Right and Centre the issue of showing mercy to Khaled Chisti was discussed. PM had written to Rajasthanâ€™s Governor Shivraj Patil to release Khaled Chisti and Shivraj Patil had decided to seek legal advice. The question was whether India should show large-heartedness and release him on humanitarian grounds. The discussion led to some revelations.
Nidhi Razdan first asked audience members. One person said there are many Indians in Indian prisons in similar condition to that of Khaled Chisti. Nobody writes to PM about them. There should be common rule for all. One woman said she was fighting for justice and Pakistanis have carried out many terrorist activities in India. That meant he should not be released.
