Economic power matters.

The present dispensation in Delhi has a mandate, and it is fulfilling it effectively. It cares about the people who have voted for them. The conservative mandate in the UK proves that the Brexit vote was no fluke.

Liberals and Academics (often of Indian origin on OCI cards) can protest on social medla from their faculty offices in plush western universities but it makes no impact on the ground. We live in an era where economic heft matters and India is a major regional player.

Al Qods, Urumqi, Islamkot, Grozny and Sitwe are all tragedies but the status quo remains. They have no economic relevance. Remember Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield of early 90s in Kuwait? They had the oil.
