    So the US gets on its high horse and demonstrates its moral superiority by refusing to let an Indian politician step on its hallowed soil. Well, until he gets elected as PM. In which case the US will demonstrate its great forward-looking pragmatism which all would do well to emulate.

    (For the record, the hard-line approach against Modi is relatively bipartisan.)

    It is a species of Islamophobia. Anyone like Modi who is associated with standing up to Muslim violence triggers fear that it will cause another jihadi attack. The communal Stockholm syndrome of the West is the real Islamophobia. Indians or Burmese who fight back are ignored or hushed up – even denied visas. Not all Muslims are jihadis, but some of them are and the Islamophobes are trying to deal with the problem with denial. They are fools, and yes, cowards.

    After being cornered by Indian Americans, Ro Khanna has recanted his opposition to Mike Honda and is now in favor of the state department imposed ban on Modi.

    Likewise, after the recent expose by the San Francisco Chronicle on Vanila Singh’s links to controversial activist Shalli Kumar, Vanila Singh has also recanted her position and is now supporting a visa ban on Modi. He is also distancing herself from Shalli Kumar.
