Bush’s cat India provokes anger
Angry youths in this Kerala capital Friday burnt an effigy of US President George W Bush, not because they are anti-American but because he has named his cat India.
Members of the citizens’ group Prathikarana Vedi assembled before the Kerala Assembly, saying that Bush calling his cat India was an insult to the country.
“This is a disgrace to our great country and this has come from none other than US President George W Bush. This is nothing but an insult to India because there are hundreds of thousands of Indians in the US, and many who occupy key posts in the White House,” said Mr M A Latheef, president of the group.
“He should make amends,” Latheef added.
The members of the group walked to the front gate of the assembly building but were stopped by police. After a brief speech and some slogans, the members burnt an effigy of the US president.
