The formation of a new Indian American SuperPAC supporting Congressman Joe Walsh’s campaign illustrates the political division within the Asian community in the 8th Congressional District.
Indian Americans for Freedom, a group founded by Carol Stream businessman Shalli Kumar in August, is airing ads on cable television and in several newspapers questioning Hoffman Estates Democrat Tammy Duckworth’s support of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Shalli Kumar brings shame to the thousands of Hindu Americans in the 8th District who co-exist in peace and friendship with other Indian Americans (Muslim, Sikh and Christian).
What is most humorous is that what he wrongly accuses CAIR of being and doing is exactly what he is in fact. His support of Narendra Modi, the Butcher of Gujarat, is indicative of his sympathies with the ultra-nationalist movements in India. However, he couches his support of Modi as being predicated on Modi's emphasis on anti-corruption in the Indian state of Gujarat.
It sounds like a cover if you ask me...
