This is an interesting opinion piece except for the writer’s assumption that Western politicians & business leaders were misguided in their fawning over Modi–as much Obama as Trump, as much Zuckerberg as Gates, as much Western figures as the rulers of the UAE & New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern. They all know more about Modi’s politics than we do since they have agencies that analyze his actions. The fawning is about investments & trade, including government military alliances with Modi in the South China Sea. They should not be left off the hook for their deep connections to Indian fascism but indicted right along with Modi & Shah.
