After the Mumbai attack, retaliation on Pakistan was not done by the then Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, because the BJP should not take advantage of the growing anti-Muslim sentiments politically. Former US President Barack Obama has revealed this in the first part of ‘A Promised Land’ autobiography released on Tuesday. He said that Manmohan Singh had to bear the brunt of it politically due to not taking action against Pakistan after 26/11 from India.
In his autobiography, Obama has mentioned this when he visited India in December 2010 and had a conversation with Manmohan Singh about it.
Obama told about that conversation Manmohan Singh was afraid that the growing anti-Muslim sentiments strengthened the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party in India. In such uncertain times, a sense of ethnic and religious solidarity could be aroused. In such a situation, it is not difficult to take advantage of such occasions from politicians in India or elsewhere.
Obama called Manmohan Singh intelligent, thinking and honest in the book. He said that Singh and I had developed a warm and fruitful relationship.
However, in this book the former President of America has written that why Sonia Gandhi chose Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister. He has written that Manmohan Singh was made Prime Minister by Sonia Gandhi because he had no political base and could not be a threat to his 40-year-old son Rahul Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi has also been written in this book. Obama has described Rahul Gandhi as a nervous and immature parasol of politics, writing that, just as a student studies a lot without the ability of the subject to impress his teacher, just like Rahul Gandhi’s rawness and nervousness She comes.
