Dear all ,
Sorry for sending this bad language but I received these mails from this guy
Sanjay Bhatia and I have no idea how he got my email , or how he started
receiving my mails from another list I have called Multitudes. I found his
initial tone offensive and therefore probably responded childishly -however
it just proves the racism within the American Indian Diaspora is at large .
The below is the last email this idiot sent and following are the previous
mails and my responses.
Wow - I thought left wing trash was too touchy feely to get pissed off like
this. Fuck off? I've heard your mom use that word while asking me to fuck
brains out. But you?? Perhaps you're not getting enough muslim cock in your
diseased cunt you fucking whore! You fucking beggar from the streets of
India.. you'll never improve. Now go fuck yourself.

I am against all forms of fascism. I am a British Asian living in London. I
work within the arts and racism is part of the fabric of the cultural
industries. I cannot always keep up with all the issues in India and
Pakistan - I do my best.
The effort I make to distribute political information , is not only limited
to to South Asia - as I live within a multicultural community in London and
feel the global tensions around me all the time. I understand that Islamic
fundamentalism is as present as Hindu, however Hindu's occupy the majority
in the sub continent - and we have witnessed the madness and the brutality
waged against Muslims by the majority in recent years.
Resistance as informed by terrorism, whether we like it or not has a force
to empower, and has been interpreted as a fight for freedom and tolerance
historically, and has led to change in countries all over the world:
Algeria, South Africa etc.
Prejudice comes from all sides - India's social structure is dependent on
prejudice. Prejudice has often been acquired by those who are angry and have
been racially abused - is that such a shock to you - study Malcolm X in his
early years. Also where were you guys when whites started throwing petrol
bombs into British Asians homes in the 1960's?
Silly to blame don't you think
> > Hi Anjali
You seem to be committed to raising awareness against fascism in south Asia
I have a couple questions for you. I think your work is very important and
My question for you is - are you against just Hindoo fascism or even Islamic
fascism? Reason I ask is - my family (and other Hindu Sindhis) were driven
of it's place of work in Bombay recently by Muslims who did not want Hindus
doing business in "their" area. Not that these Hindus moved there recently
they have been there for over 50 years now. Where were you guys then? And
about Godhra? I never heard any opinion from you about what started the
violence (which is a massive shame getting an incredible ammount of
So, I think your credibility would be much higher if you weren't so biased.
That's my point.
