A section of Indian society and media are excited about the 'Indian origin' of Kamala Harris, the Democratic nominee for the US Vice-President. In such a situation, it is necessary to know how much Indianness is there in Kamala's personality. Kamla has already answered this question at the time of US Census. He then registered his identity as 'African American'.
It is clear that she was indifferent to the Indian identity she got from her mother. This is the reason that sister Maya Harris and American media presented Kamala as the 'first black woman' candidate for the post after being declared a candidate.
Kamala Harris's supporters are promoting her as a human rights defender. How much truth is there in these claims? As a lawyer, whether she was the District Attorney General of San Francisco or as the Attorney General of California, she tried to bring justice to the aggrieved party in many cases of child sexual abuse, but when its flames reached the Catholic Church, she gave a true Like Christian and keeping allegiance to the church, the emphasis was more on suppressing the matter.
When Kamala Harris became the District Attorney General of San Francisco in 2004, she took possession of documents related to the victim and the accused clergy, in conjunction with the church, instead of judging victims of sexual assault by the clergy of the Catholic Church. It was created under the leadership of Terence Hallinan, the former District Attorney General, who detailed the decade-old sexual misconduct of the then local clergy.
This document was to be made public, but Kamala sat on it with a coil. Joy Pastitelli, a pastoral victim of sexual harassment, said, "At the time of Hallinan, the matter was moving at a brisk pace, but Kamala Harris pushed it too far." Similarly, Dominic de Lucca, who was raped at the age of 12 by a local clergyman, said he was shocked by Kamala Harris's conduct in the case.
It is ironic that Kamala Harris, as a leader who facilitated silence on the human rights of victims of immoral sex acts, speaks of selective human rights in Kashmir as a leader. His sympathy is more towards the class whose mentality gave birth to Pakistan by creating a bloody partition of India in 1947, then migrating five lakh Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in the 1980s-90s and living like displaced in their own country. Forced to.
After Hitler's rule, the most religious atrocities in the world have taken place in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Kashmir of fragmented India. Hindu, Sikh, and Buddhist followers have been persecuted here for decades because of their method of worship.
But the tone of the so-called human rights defender, Indian Kamala Harris, matches the Pakistani language and thinking on Kashmir. Opposition to the policies of the Government of India in Kashmir including the constitutional erosion of Article 370 is a direct proof of this.
After becoming the vice-president of the US Vice-President, Kamala Harris is talking about values like tolerance, pluralism, and diversity, referring to Gandhiji in his speeches. The truth is that Gandhiji got all these values from the philosophy of Vedic formula 'Ekam Satya Vipra Bahuvadanti"
He, therefore, opposed the conversion of the missionaries through fear and greedthroughout his life. He was determined to protect the cow as a symbol of Indian culture.
Not only this, Gandhi considered him an integral part of Hindu society, while scouring the gross injustice done to Dalits. Now, if Kamala Harris truly respects Gandhiji, she should also respect Gandhiji's cowardice, conversion and the views expressed on Dalits.
It is ridiculous that Kamla Harris mentioned Idli, the famous dish of South India, in an election speech to establish her Indian identity. Now, if the food would have ensured national identity in today's era, then innumerable Indians, who are fond of eating pizza, burgers, French fries, pasta, spaghetti and chowmein, etc., on the basis of American, Italian, French or Chinese culture.
The truth is that Kamala Harris' exercise is purely political. Her vision is about 40 lakh Indian-origin citizens or Indians of Indian origin, of which 44 percent, ie 18 lakh have the right to vote. Hindus are counted among America's most affluent and educated class because of their connection to Indian culture, family beliefs, and values. Among those earning more than one lakh US dollars per year, 44 percent are Jews, while the proportion of Hindus is 36 percent. Not only this, but more than 77 percent of Hindus also have college degrees.
Kamala Harris's late mother Shyamala Gopalan was born in colonial India in the year 1938. She spent the remaining 51 years of his life in America after settling in the US from 1958 and marrying Donald Harris of African Christian descent at a young age.
California-born Kamala was raised in a Catholic church, so she was not proud of her Indian identity before the election. In this backdrop, the readers will decide how much of her personality is Indian or purely American Christian.
