|Diplomat arrested in US for labor law violations|
It is being reported in Indian news reports, that she was strip searched and kept in a cell with drug addicts before posting $250,000 bail. This is causing quite a stir in India, as wealthy people there are not subjected to common security issues, as we are here. This is probably the reason Bombay was recently taken over by terrorists for a week. Only poor people are subjected to common security tactics in India.
|This arrest has caused a international debacle.|
In fact, standard security checks for Indian officials in the U.S. are regularly front-page fodder in India, when they involve visiting Indian dignitaries, which are usually exempt from friskings while in their home nation. Somnath Chatterjee, India's former speaker of Parliament, even once refused to attend an international meeting in Australia when he wasn't guaranteed that he would not have to pass through security. Chatterjee said even the possibility of a security screening was "an affront to India."
“An Affront to India.” That is what Indians consider common security in this country. Personally I think that if they don’t like it, they should go back where they came from, and take all their crappy overly spicy food with them.
|India destroys barricades surrounding US Embassy there.|
On Tuesday, Indian political leaders from both the ruling party and the opposition refused to meet with the U.S. congressional delegation in New Delhi. The Indian government said it was "shocked and appalled at the manner in which the diplomat had been humiliated" in the U.S. Then in a continued act of what the kids call ‘butthurt’ on the internet, they began tearing down protective barricades in front of our embassy in New Delhi. So now they are making it easier for terrorists to attack our embassies. This is going to be Benghazi all over again, just because we arrested one of their people that were acting unlawfully in our country.
Back in New York, It was reported that Khobragade, 39, claimed to have paid her Indian maid $4,500 per month but actually paid her less than the U.S. minimum wage. For diplomats to get a visa for their personal staff, they must get an A-3 visa, to do so, they must show proof that the employee will receive a fair wage, comparable to employment in the U.S.
Khobragade told the housekeeper she would be paid 30,000 rupees a month about $573, or $3.31 per hour, much less that the U.S. minimum wage. The woman worked for the family from about November 2012 through June 2013, and worked over 40 hours per week and was actually paid less than she was promised.
So the woman violated labor laws and was rightfully arrested for breaking the law, and now we are in a major diplomatic debacle with India, one of our only real allies in the middle east.
To further upset the issue, India recalled the diplomat while she was out on bail. Despite being told not to leave the US, India booked her passage on the first Jet to New Delhi. While on her way to her home, the car while stopped at a redlight was set upon by a roving gang of slum dog losers. Everyone in the car was pulled out of the vehicle, robbed, and beaten, and as is typical for India, Khobragade a woman, was brutally raped.
|Father calls US "absolutely obnoxious".|
Khobragade's father, Uttam Khobragade, told the TimesNow TV news channel on Tuesday that his daughter's treatment was
"As a father I feel hurt, our entire family is traumatized," he said. Not about her being raped, that is completely normal for India, but about being treated like a criminal in America because she was one.
