Don't issue visa to Narendra Modi: US lawmaker to State Dept

WASHINGTON: A US lawmaker has asked the State Department not to grant visa to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of violating right to religious freedom.

"Granting a visa to Narendra Modi would be contradictory to international law and would only serve to validate the Chief Minister's abhorrent policies and actions," Congresswoman Betty McCollum wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

The Democratic lawmaker from Minnesota serves on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State Department and Foreign Operations and the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security and Foreign Affairs.

"Denying Modi a visa to enter the US not only will uphold the law but will send the important message that Modi's reprehensible statements, policies and actions are abhorrent to the laws and values of the United States," the letter dated July 3, 2008 said.

Final Solution


  Final Solution is a study of the politics of hate. Set in Gujarat during the period February/March 2002 - July 2003, the film examines the genocidal violence of the Hindutva right-wing by exploiting the Godhra train incident and then goes on to document the various acts of brutality that marked the violence that followed. It travels with the election campaign during the Assembly elections in Gujarat in late 2002, and documents the spread of hate and fascism that accompanied it.
