Wharton Business School Forum mess up with Narendra Modi



It is strange to know that a learning centre like the Wharton Business School should falls prey to the dirty politics of hatred and prejudice.  Being one of the leading education centres of United States, the Wharton Business School has eminent educationalists, businessmen, politicians, free thinkers and liberals on its Panel.  So how come this Panel decided to cancel the Video Conference meet between Narendra Modi and the students.  This smacks of pure hypocrisy.

First things first, the United States of America has been a nation of liberated souls right from Abraham Lincoln to the current President Barak Obama.  It has opened its arms to many like minded people through out its history.  Now it is opening it arms for the Chinese dissidents.  It is not granting Narendra Modi the visa due to its internal politics but as a nation state, it is still the biggest centre of doing business and selling ideas.  Indeed it is known as the land of opportunities.

It hosts the United Nations General Assembly and the assembly has seen the worst enemies of United States come to its shores and rant about the US policies and atrocities committed by it. Watch this video of Mr.Chavez, President of Venezuela, calling President Bush a devils.  Mr.Chavez was entitled to his views as a individual and a head of the state of Venezuela.




No one objected then.  No one could object because United Nations General Assembly is immune to the internal laws of United States.

Politics and learning should not be mixed together, they create a potent poison.  The politicians will do their jobs and the educationists should do their job.  And their job is to impart free and fair education.  In the same way like United Nations is immune to the internal laws of United States because it is a assembly of the Nations of the World, the Wharton and other Universities of US and the world should be immune to the internal laws because they are the assembly of the students of the world.  

A student is a student, whether he is from US, Canada, China, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.  He is a student because he wants to learn.  He wants to learn because he wants know what is wrong and right.  To know the right from the wrong he should be exposed to both the sides.  It is then, through a healthy debate he can form his opinion.  This opinion is what makes him a human being, whether he is left leaning, right leaning, capitalist, communist, communalist or just plain liberal doesn't matter.  IT is his own right and conscience which guides him in the end.  

So as a educational institution, it is the duty of Wharton or for that matter any educational institution to expose its students to all the information it possibly can and then let the students decide what is right or wrong.  If it does not do so, it is no better than the Jehadi diktats which pronounce 'Fatwa' without giving a fair hearing to the person concerned.

Having said that, I don't know what problem the Wharton has with Narendra Modi.  The man has won mandate for 60 million people of Gujarat which includes 10 % Muslims, thrice.  Give him a break. Winning elections once, in states of India is difficult, keeping the anti incumbency factor at bay is the worst nightmare faced by all the Chief Ministers of the various states of India.   This man has done that and through a rather handsome majority on all three times.

The other side of the argument is that Narendra Modi has not been named in any of the various charge sheets filed by the law enforcement agencies.  It has names of his aides, fellow ministers but he is not named.  The Supreme Court of India, the apex body of justice in India, had vaguely hinted his unwillingness to go after the suspected participants for carnage in Godhra.  No where has it mentioned him as a co-accomplice or co-conspirator for the progrom of 2002.

In face of above, if the Wharton and its deemed panelists consider Narendra Modi a conspirator or a fundamentalist then they are questioning the legitimacy of Supreme Court judgements and thereby questioning the Supreme Court of India.

By not letting Narendra Modi speak at the conference has done Mr.Modi no harm, but it has damaged its own reputation as upholder of education and freedom of expression.  In a paradox of a kind, Narendra Modi has emerged winner due to the hodge podge decision of the business school.

May some sanity return to its panelists.  Please post your comments even if you disagree with me.  

Vijay Prabhu

  1. Here is a man who can fight terrorism in true sense is barred from speaking; by doing so Wharton has taken a side of terrorism. People argue that it was not Wharton but a India business forum that took the call to disinvite Modi. It is a wrong argument. The business forum bears name Wharton so it is of course responsible for the decision in this case.

  3. Yes I agree with you, the decision to ban him was taken by the panelists who have no links with Indian business

    I strongly agree with Mr. Prabhu. its a sheer hypocracy on the part of Wharton panelists. Mr. Modi should have been allowed to speak at the forum.

    1. As I have written above by banning Mr.Modi, they have insulted the People of India who have given Mr.Modi the mandate to rule Gujarat and Supreme Court of India, which has never named him as a co-accomplice in any matter related to 2002

  5. Mr.Modi has blood on his hands. Just as a Hitler or a Himmler would have been allowed to enter the US in the 1930s, the US made the right choice.
    The Modi government does not just discriminate against muslims, but also against Christians. A good chunk of Indian expariates living overses have been educated in one of more than the forty one thousand (41,000) Christian institutions yet do not lift a little finger to condemn violence against minorities. Indians are congenitally coorrupt and living in a transactional culture where one bribes their gods (stepping over beggers, homeless into temples to crown their idols with diamond encrusted crowns in return for favors. Modi espouses that culture. Most NRIs in the NA continent are BJP sympathizers who conveniently have enriched themselves in this open Judeo-Christian environment and have the gall to espouse Modi as a future leader. That does not mean the Congress is innocent. Corruption and tainted leadership in India has kept our capable would be leaders from entering the political arena. This field is ruled by the lawless, scoundrels and sorrily rapists as well.
    In summary Mr. Modi deserves what he gets ina denial. The shame will be greater for India, if Modi wins and he is denied a visiting politician's visa.

  6. Hi Nirvan ,

    I want to know your source of info that Mr.Modi has blood on his hands which should not be a media report.Something like document from any courts,any GR specifying his name.

  7. @Nirvan,
    What Anon says is correct, where is the proof that Modi has killed anybody. There is not a single chargesheet against him.
    The Christian institutions you are talking about want to spread chritianity in India by taking advantage of poor people by offering them bribes of jobs, education and money. Do remember before you your ancesters were hindus.

  8. Niravan,
    Please add your credentials and work, so that you are known to everybody and let them comment on you. It will be certainly interesting o read your pages of accolades.
    Practiacally you have encompassed every Indian American as a bullshit by your comment, do you realise it? I think you need some counselling, respectfully. When the entire mass is wrong, I don't think you have a chance as a lone voice, unfortunate for you.
    Further you may be informed that Modi did not beg USA, instead the US Lawmakers have gone to his door step begging him to visit USA. Update yourself. David Cameron, Francois Hollende have all queued up there in Gujarat for His kind attention. It may be a rude shock to you but it is true. Kindly check your bearings..

  9. Media has degraded itself to a greedy propaganda machinery, unfortunately. US has more blood on its not just hands but smeared all over its entire body. They have plundered the entire world just because they have a pile of 25, 000 nukes that is more than enough to destry the entire world for more than "400" times. If someone has doubts, please check the records and data. Secondly US is fighting its battle on the sovereign lands of more than seventy nations, nobody dare speak up. They have kept their military guards in majority of countries at the vantage points. That is the problem with US...
    Rex non potest piccare. King can do no wrong. US was wild after one 9/11. India has faced such silly 9/11s ever since 1947, both from within and without. India's 26/11 as it is known widely, only because half a dozen Americans were involved in the list of about one hundred and seventy odd deceased besides thousands injured brutally. When India is blasted, US/UK allies run immediately to India to sermonise to avoid counter attack on murderous state of Pakistan. So that US interest in Afghanistan is not jeopardised.
    With such a brilliant Human Right record, US hopes to play a role of global policeman! Iran is being threatened after massacring Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan. Kashmir is a gift of blowback war of US in Afghanistan. After decimation of USSR, Pakistan was given an understanding to direct those wild brutes, so called mujahideens, to point their guns to Kashmir and India. India is paying a collateral damage of US war in this subcontinent. If I may warn, US will not be spared either if India is hurt; monster has no master-slave relations.
    Yet Modi who has not been indicted by any Court of Indian law despite the best and incessant mad efforts by their puppet Sonia Maino. Modi has to prove that he is not guilty, because the media (backed by English and petro money) has proclaimed him guilty. US has a one way license of proclaimation globally irrespective of the Law of the Land in respective nations, US is the word of law. What a travesty of justice?

  11. Tarun Vijay, I am sorry. My comment to you has been duplicated, unfortunately despite I wrote a fresh one. That seem to have been washed off for this duplication. Your post is very much to the point of this tip of iceberg. Sorry for inconvenience.

  15. Don't worry. First seva is to oneself, next only is seva to society. This Wharton pot will not cool easily, or we shall keep it boiling. Let those traitors also feel the brunt of backlash. Modi has emerged a bigger victor in this denial. Europe, now US as you know are keen to meet him but they are buying time for a face saving strategy. NaMo will be next hot shot, unless some miracle happens otherwise. I am convinced and he is comming. Let us pray.. Thank you.
