UK’s envoy to India Alex Ellis in recent media interviews in India tried to justify why British Parliamentarians are wasting more and more of their taxpayer’s money on debating Indian laws in their parliaments because according to Alex Ellis, things that happen in India create “ripples” in his country. Ellis’s arguments were based on that UK has a large section of the diaspora community that often wants its local parliamentarians to debates from A370, CAA Laws to the recent Farm laws because it affects their loved one directly?.
So Alex Ellis believes that 2.3% of the Indian Community that makes up the British Population some of who now identify themselves as Asians from Punjab have the liberty to debate Indian laws made by the Indian Parliament for Indian citizens just because they think they are not good enough for their folks back home is not only absurd but also reeks British Envoys Colonial hangover that they have some leverage with their Indian counterparts in the diplomatic circle to influence or change some of the Indian laws to avoid ripples in the country.
Mr. Ellis, the big diaspora you talk about are British citizens who moved out of India two to three generations ago and have little or no connections back home to ascertain facts about Indian laws that are made by them in the first place, to begin with. Ellis was not able to justify how somethings happening in India can create ripples in the UK in the first place, even if it can create some law and order situations in their country it is for them to take care of it not that it self should be India’s concern.
Ellis says that All e-petitions on the Parliament website that cross the 10,000 signatures mark require the UK government to make an official statement and any petitions that cross 100,000 signatures must be considered for a debate. But are these signatures are verified to be coming from the Indian diaspora alone? as we have seen in past where Pakistani origin British Population have put petitions to debate in British parliaments on Indian laws like Article 370 and Article 35A that are no way are connected to British Pakistani diaspora nor they can claim they have relatives back in Kashmir who are affected by changes in the Indian laws.
What is more absurd are the tone and lunatic presumptions of the British Parliamentarians when these debates do take place, British parliamentarians are either peddling secessionist propaganda or Pakistan’s narrative without a basic understanding of the subject they are debating. Much of the arguments put forward in such debates lack logic and largely seem to be done to show India its place and rile up propaganda against the elected government. Many of the British Parliamentarians, run to such debates or sponsor them to satisfy their vote bank and less to do with what is happening in India, most of the time no efforts are made to reach out to the Indian embassy to get their points of views on the subject of such debates.
Blatant disregard for India’s laws and its Parliament and continuous interference in India’s internal matters with such useless debates only creates grounds for further divisions between Indian and British citizens and attacks on the Indian embassy often by Pakistani backed diaspora are increasing in the last few years and British Parliamentarians often never condemn them nor refuse to take actions against such regular organizers that have dubious links with other countries that have good relations with India.
