I feel India is the only country that:
1. Cares more about people in another country than its own. Thousands of Tamilians in Tamil Nadu are homeless and starving. Yet the Tamil Nadu government is more interested in Sri Lankan nationality Tamilians in Sri Lanka.
2. Mixes sports with politics. Have a disagreement with Sri Lanka and you have no matches in Madras. Thankfully neither Italy plays cricket nor we are a big footballing nation or we would have stopped playing with them too. If I were in the BCCI, seeing the government's apathy towards Sri Lankan players who have nothing got to do with the ongoing issue, I would have cancelled Madras as a venue for this year's IPL. Sporting tournaments should be taken sportingly and not as a platform to hold a nation or its people at ransom.
3. Singling out people to prevent justice being done. Sanjay Dutt, by acting in Munnabhai series of movies has not done a good deed or the nation a favour. He is an actor and acting is his job. His sister Priya Dutt's comment that he has been suffering for the last 20 years and hence should be set free somehow never ceases to amaze me. The other co-accused too have undergone a similar fate. Why not pardon them as well. Sanjay Dutt, please cut the crap and serve your sentence. Atleast, financially you’re in a much better state than most of your co-accused. And as you proclaim in your Lage Raho Munnabhai movie, all great people including Gandhi went to jail.
