I've been very disappointed at India's response to the momentous events in Libya. As a country that claims to stand for democracy, its behaviour has been a serious let down for the people of Libya. I trust that Libyans will forgive the present Indian government for it doesn't speak for the people of India – at least on such matters.
On 22 August 2011 I congratulated Libya. This time, the formal celebrations have begun (youtube video below).
This is a great achievement for mankind, almost as great as the fall of the Berlin wall. A major step forward for liberty across the world.
I hope the people of Libya will move towards genuine democracy and liberty. Shun the Islamic fanatics in your midst – for they are worse than Gaddafi. Don't forget the experience of Iran. Don't forget the Taliban in Afghanistan.
