Dear Sir,
Human life is the most precious creation of The God. We all must agree and join hands to protect human life. Here, I wish to tell you about a Sanskrit ( ancient indian language, language of The God) saying ” Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam” , mean “whole universe is one family”. We must have unity to prevent any loss of life without politics.

Thanks for this opportunity to express my views.

Yours Sincerely,

Maganlal A. Gadhia,
Senate Member, Saurashtra University, Rajkot, India

Honorable Mister Gadhia,

A man of vision at last. Without vision, the people perish.

Mr. Gadhia, have you ever studied Einstien’s unified field theory?

I know of many languanges. Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew, German, Spainish, Latin.

Latin has changed very little since Jesus of Nazerith passed from this life.

Logic proves out the existance of God.

The Americans knew about David Coleman Headley alias Dawood Geelani all the time and yet gave a long rope to him.Americans know it that the much wanted and hunted Al Qaida Chief Osama Bin Laden is hiding in Pakistan shielded by Pakistan Government/Pakistan Army and ISI.Americans know very well that some terrorists trained,armed and funded by Pakistan were involved in 9/11 incident in US.Americans know that banned terrorist groups are functioning without hindrance with the help of ISI and Army in Pakistan and are resposible for 26/11 attack on Mumbai.
And yet US is not able to tame the rogue state of Pakistan but instead are giving billions of dollars military aid which US very well know that this aid is going to be used by Pakistan gainst its own and Nato forces in Afghanistan.Is US so selfish?Why is Obama allowing all this,arming the rogue state where terrorist walk free without hindarance and carry out terrorist activities at their will and wish in Afghanistan and India from Pakistani soil?.Obama may be a good orator but a poor administrator.He and the Americans are just taken for a ride by the Pakistan military and ISI.Americans have always said that aid to Pakistan will not be at cost of Indian but it has always been the Indians that had to pay the price for American aid to Pakistan.If one calls this a war against terrorism ,well it may be one ,which would never be won,because the ally is betraying American ‘friends’

Ram, you have a grasp on the situation for sure.
Pakistan and India are both in the nuclear club now.
I for one would hate to kill millions of people to trap one man. I would rather know where Bin Ladin is and monitor communications to his underlings.

But that is just what I say. I am in a postion of no consequence nor importance.

The war on terror is not winable, there will be no date of victory. I am and always have been opposed to the patriot act, I just do not think we should have caved so quickly to giving our rights up as individuals in the interest of security.

We have people in prisions all over the world that would tell everyone they were the gunman on the grassy knoll just to get relief from the punishment they are on the recieving end of. These detention centers may be run by proxy, but we are reaping the intel from them. I’m sorry but that is the way I see it. We as a nation want to pick and choose what when where and how we enforce certain ideals.
