A follow-up to my Oddities Roundup article on the Indian Coastguard claim.

For a democratic govt to behave shamefully like this only goes to their 
prevailing mindset. The climax of it is the boast that the Indian coastguard 
saved the princess from kidnappers. One has to ask: who turned out to be the 
real kidnappers.

Realpolitik dictates that if the Dubai Emir requested India to seize the boat 
and return his daughter to the UAE, the request could not be refused in view of 
the huge Indian population being employed there.

But to declare they were rescuing the princess from kidnappers is a humiliating 
blow to the country’s integrity that calls into question India’s abundance of 
‘fake news’.
