Ignoble Resident Sepoy Gets Noble

Kailash Satyarthi, a little-known, self-proclaimed crusader against “child slavery,” has recently been awarded the Noble Prize for Peace. Many Indians — including journalists — were perplexed as they had never heard of the man. On scratching the surface, the truth has come out: Satyarthi is just another opportunist sepoy who was quietly being groomed by the Whites for years and used against India’s national interests. The agenda was to target some of India’s industries in the guise of activism and thwart competition with Western firms.

Satyarthi has been a smart sepoy, only too happy to offer his services as long as Western awards and funds were made available. India Facts has published a brilliant expose of this charlatan and his links with Western churches and manipulative American politicians who are known for running operations in third-world countries. A pox on Indians like Satyarthi and their Western awards.

Kailash Satyarthi –Nobel Prize for advancing WTO’s agenda

By Arvind Kumar

The choice of Kailash Satyarthi for the Nobel Peace Prize is the result of an old tussle between India and the US. Throughout the 1990s, the US used trade sanctions as well as the World Trade Organization to foist its version of the so-called “free trade” which came complete with patent laws, genetically modified seeds, Enron’s shenanigans, and stringent standards related to environmental and labour laws. The Indian government as well as Indian activists resisted these moves at that time and there was friction between the US and India.

The environmental and labour laws were intended to make it expensive for businesses to run their operations in India by forcing them to go through a costly certification process, and one such law that targeted the Indian carpet industry was the Child Labour Deterrence Act which was passed in the US. The law was first proposed in 1992 by Democratic Party politician and American Senator Tom Harkin who drafted it with inputs from Kailash Satyarthi.

Not only did the American law grant NGOs in India the status of inspectors of Indian businesses, but Satyarthi also demonstrated his entrepreneurial skills and set up one such NGO named Rugmark in 1994 with venture capital from a German Protestant group named Bread for the World. He thus profited from his venture while also effectively becoming an inspector on behalf of Western forces ensuring that Indian businesses would lose their competitive edge.

Satyarthi’s benefactor, Bread for the World, does not hide its political agenda when it declares on its website that it seeks “to influence political decisions in favour of the poor.” Many cables on the whistle-blower website Wikileaks too show that money from the group has ended up with churches in at least one country (South Korea) where these churches attempted to foment political trouble.

In 1994, Kailash Satyarthi appeared before a Senate subcommittee chaired by Tom Harkin instead of raising the issue with either the Indian parliament or the Indian government thus calling into question not only his motives but also the veracity of his claims made before his international audience.

When USA passed Tom Harkin’s law, India already had laws against using child labour and the American law, rather than helping families of children who were employed in the carpet industry by finding them alternative means of earning their livelihoods, merely aimed to help Western firms by weeding out competition. This point seems to have been noted by Dr. Subramanian Swamy who was appointed the Chairman of the Commission on Labour Standards and International Trade by the then Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao.

Dr. Swamy writes in his book, India’s labour standards and the WTO framework, ‘It would be of interest here to note that Section 2 of the Child Labour Deterrence Act of 1993 — Tom Harkin’s Bill — introduced in the House of Representatives and the Senate in USA says brazenly: “adult workers in the United States and in the other developed countries should not have their jobs imperilled by imports produced by child labour in developing countries”.’

Children who worked in the carpet industry did so out of desperation but Tom Harkin and his assistants cynically portrayed it as a case of exploitation. In many cases, the employer too was from a similar socio-economic background as the children they employed, and both parties viewed the arrangement as a means of providing a livelihood for the families of children involved in the manufacture of carpets. The result of the Harkin-Satyarthi effort was that scores of families of carpet manufacturers as well as families of their employees were reduced to misery and many of them even faced starvation.

Satyarthi’s NGO, Rugmark, later changed its name to Goodweave International and it is pertinent to note that a majority of its board members have Christian names and at least two of them are from Western churches that use the alleviation of human suffering as a cover for proselytism, a strategy that has been effectively used by Western governments to destabilize several countries. While one board member, Rev. Pharis J. Harvey, is from the United Methodist Church, another board member, Pat Zerega, is from the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

It also turns out that Tom Harkin was responsible for nominating Kailash Satyarthi for the Nobel Prize, effectively making the prize a quid pro quo for Satyarthi’s services rendered to American politicians.

Although Satyarthi was unknown in India and around the world until he was named as the recipient of this year’s Nobel Prize – making the award even more questionable – Western countries seem to have decorated him with many prizes such as the Robert F. Kennedy Award, Defenders of Democracy Award, an award from the US State Department and other awards from European countries. Many of the awards he has received are known to have been used in the past as rewards for advancing the agenda of American and European governments.

Despite the US government honouring Satyarthi with awards, a Wikileaks cable acknowledges that they understand he exaggerates the number of children who are engaged in child labour in India. Others have complained that Satyarthi has made tall claims of rescuing up to 50,000 children but has been unable to provide details of the identities and whereabouts of the children when challenged to do so. Satyarthi has also been accused of staging a ‘rescue’ operation for the benefit of Dutch television cameras by using a child who acted out the part of the victim.

The West has shown that its relationship with India is in bad faith and has sent the message that working for its mercantile agenda by acting against India’s economic interests can be rewarding. It should be noted that among the five Norwegian politicians who form the panel that decides the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, two of them have a history of actively interfering in Sri Lanka and supporting the Sri Lankan terrorist group LTTE. Of the two, Gunnar Stålsett is a former bishop and served as the state secretary of the Ministry of Church Affairs and Education while Thorbjørn Jagland is a former Prime Minister and a member of the Labour Party in Norway which grew out of the Communist movement. It is time for Indians to realize that the Nobel Peace Prize is just an award given by a group of politicians from Norway who pursue their own agendas, and the process of awarding this prize too has had its share of corruption scandals.

  1. Why China are not part of common wealth, yet revered over India. Western meddle with Student movement in Shanghai angered Chines oligarchs and yet the UK offered Zero Travel visa fee for Chinese!! Why India is in such a terribly state for over last 700 years? Why no one talks about 1600-1700 Calcutta where there used to be trade surplus? Why Modi doesn’t have any control over media’s mouth. Why Modi doesn’t have any understanding on how BBC works? If Modi’s country is independent why he is still a PM. Does he understand what a minister stand for? what a ‘collage’ stand for?

    Its easiest to take India for a ride. Why? Because India don’t exist as a nation. What is India? In the World platform Its ‘Hindustan’. But in reality is it? During 1942 Beverly Nichols was asked, “have you seen an Indian”? Last remaining Indian or shall I say ‘Bharatyia’ has gone with Murya dinesty. The last Indian education was done for with the systemic destruction of ‘Nalanda Vishya Bidya-alya’ by moslem intruders. Last thousand years there is no pedigree ‘Bharatia’ left in India. So, I refuse to call India a nation, where its independence is ‘taken’ or ‘given’ at foreigner’s will!!

    Its foolish of Scottish expecting their independence without a Crusades!

    There are difference between ‘handed’ and taking your right by ‘force’. ‘Bose’ tried it but he was alone and his lack of understanding of ‘Roman Catholic Church’ caused him measurable demise. Gandhi, being born in ‘Baishya’ family (son of a shopkeeper) played Brahmin, with Bhagbat Gita at his armpit promulgating ‘Ahimsha’!! How bizarre! Exactly, like Narendra Nath Datta (later swami bibeka ananda) played Brahmin and brought ‘gayatri’ to an undesirable level by insulting ‘Ramkrishna Paramhansa’. He never went to America to lecture, its was circumstantial. Look at prabhupada of ISKCON leaving burning India during 1960s for US at the time India needed a man like him the most.

    I spent 5 hours reading vedas, Purans, Upanishad yet did not find the word ‘Hindu’ any where. Not all Indian come from the plain of Hindukush. Yet the above mentioned lots spent their lives spreading ‘Hinduism’ in the World that never existed. Now perhaps ‘Hindu’ is institutionalized like other strange plagiarists.

    India can not exit without its cast system and 1000’s of years education system. Now all are mongrels, leaderless ship and short sighted. All making ‘fiat cash’ giving away basic rights. Modern-days slavery, me says!

    Dominic Lapeare has pictured the time of last Viceroy in India. Where you shall be surprised to see Congress talking about the money they needed to spend on ‘Mahatma’ to keep him poor!! The last chance of India gone in smoke with Lal Bahadur Shastri.

    In the end there is no point of incrementing the West! They put their own world renowned historian through surveillance and get MI5 to stop them getting jobs at Universities as lecturers.

    Henri Kissinger say, “MILITARY MEN ARE DUMB AND STUPID ANIMALS TO BE USED AS PAWN FOR FOREIGN POLICY”. Now imagine, when for the last time did Indian fight for their own purpose?? I don’t remember since fighting Alexander! The later fights were just insignificant defensive struggles proving futile. All these time Indians are being used (including my Grandfather at WW1 by British Army) as mercenaries or shall I say ‘stupid and dumb animals’.
    So, its a cycle. All will have their chance on Earth. Brahmins had their chance. Now let the others have theirs.

    See, as soon as Modi came to power, Jailalita the closest friend of Sonia was sent to jail! India is too big and too complex with various languages and food habits and with very matured upper class (I did not mean wealthy) to manage centrally. So, India should adopt same as ‘United states of India’ rather than being a one nation which evidently is not working. Then at least good people in individual states shall have some sigh of relief. Because its not easy to undo the alteration that so called historian ‘Alexander Cunningham’ has done!!
    Phew! I can write a whole book….
