Double trouble

Unfortunately we have become accustomed to the rantings of the Minister of National Security aimed primarily at the Opposition Leader Dr Rowley.

The IRO was reported as praising Mr Warner for boycotting the opening of the Divali Nagar because of Dr Rowley's presence. If we say his remarks were made, not in his capacity as IRO president but as a Hindu leader, we are still left with the loud silence of the other members of the IRO by not disassociating themselves from his remarks.

The PM's attempt to demonise the Opposition Leader at a religious function, the primary theme of which was the prevailing of light over darkness or good over evil was unfortunate. At the very least the PM was disrespectful to the Nagar committee and at worst she fanned the flames of religious and ethnic intolerance.
