Opinion makers have a role : Obama on India

Opinion makers have a role This refers to the report "Obama says India may 'pull apart' over minority rights" (The Hindu, June 23). Definitely, there will be an impact on the way world leaders think, if opinion makers of Obama's stature make right noises at right places. Casual observations like this to media persons will take longer time to reach right ears, and sometimes, the delay could be self-defeating. The word 'honestly' used to describe how Biden administration should discuss racial issues with Prime Minister Modi has wider implications, considering that country's approach to such issues at home and elsewhere. Having said that, one cannot ignore the possible proactive role opinion makers like Obama can play, in resolving delicate and sensitive issues involving religion and races, now resurfacing across the globe in different intensities.
