Obama is visiting Humayan’s Tomb. Nasir ud-din Muhammad Humayun was a sixteenth-century Mughal emperor, whose empire encompassed modern-day Pakistan, Afghanistan, and parts of northern India.
He is visiting, in other words, a Muslim shrine. He has no plans to visit any holy places of the Sikhs (such as the Golden Temple, Amritsar), or any Hindu holy places, Buddhist holy places, or Jain holy places. Nor does he plan to visit Nariman house, the Chabad house in Mumbai that was the chief target of the jihad mass-murderers who killed 173 people in November 2008.
Once again, Obama manifests a solicitude for Islam that he wouldn’t dream of extending to other faiths.
An entry from our If-People-Think-Obama-Is-A-Muslim-He-Has-No-One-But-Himself-To-Blame Department: from “Maurya, Humayun await Obamas,” in Rediff, November 7 (thanks to George):
Scores of policemen have also been posted outside the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, which the Obamas are expected to visit later today.
