|An open letter to the king of Norway
An Open Letter to the King of Norway Your Majesty, God gave me genius. God gave me courage. God gave me a sense of justice, and the ability to distinguish right from wrong. And when God gives so much to a man, he doesn't need very much else from his fellow-men, even if they happen to be kings. Therefore, your majesty, I don't need or want anything from you except that you stop the mafia-war that is being conducted against me since the past twenty years by the Norwegian ministry of education, the university of Oslo, the university of Bergen, and the Technical university of Trondheim. Here are a few samples of the harvests of hate and racial discrimination. 1) In 1984 the Norwegian ministry of education told me that if I did not withdraw my charges of racial discrimination against Agder college, Grimstad, my family in India will be killed. The Norwegian minister of education personally appointed a man, the head of all the colleges in southern Norway, to "investigate" my charges of racial discrimination against Agder college. He told me this. Then he thurst a document before me to sign and thereby confess that I was unconditionally withdrawing all my charges against the college. Before leaving he said that he will ensure that at least for the next fifty years nobody dare accuse Norway of racial discrimination. Your majesty, this is a crime under any law. The ministry of education itself sent this document of forced recantation to the Indian embassy. The Indian embassy did not utter a word on my behalf during this whole episode. 2) In the summer of 1987, professor Ladislav, physics department, Bergen university, told me that they would destroy me. The occasion was that in a single semester I passed 10 exams with a total of 20 credit points without attending a single lecture - something which many Norwegians don't accomplish even in 4 semesters and with all the help from their teachers. Some people at Bergen university did not like this. In this context professor Vladislav said that they will destroy me and never let me repeat this feat again. 3) In the same summer of 1987, Helene Ullerø, the head of the foreign student office, Oslo university, told me to committ sucide. The occasion was that I just went to her to ask her to allow me to move from Bergen university to Oslo university so that I could see my daughter more frequently. This is a very uncomplicated process, at least for the white Norwegians. But for me Helene Ullerø had a whole different perspective because I am not a white Norwegian. (Your majesty, in parenthesis I wish to mention that this beautiful daughter in question, my only child, committed sucide a few years later when she was just 17. I do not wish to confuse the issues at hand by bringing up an unrelated matter. The only reason I have brought this up is because, through her memory, I want to tell 4 million Norwegians that I have no intention of commmitting sucide. If Norwegians want me out of the way, they will have to kill me themselves.) 4) In 1989 professor Kristoffer Gjøtterud, physics department, Oslo university, gave my master's thesis ("On Some Superstring Related Mathematics") for evaluation to a student, Dag Einar Sommervoll. When I objected and asked how a student can evaluate and then reject the master's thesis of another student, professor Gjøtterud immediately put a paper and pencil before me and said that if I did not apologize immediately and in writing, I will be out of the university at once. Your majesty, this is a crime under any law. 5) In around 1995 I decided to bring all my grievances to a court of law in a non-violent and democratic manner. But lawyers told me they will not represent me and risk their career because nobody can win a case of racial discrimination in Norway. 6) I went to the anti-racist center in Oslo for help and advice. Instead of helping me, the anti-racist center threatened me and told me to withdraw my case. Click here to read the rest of this story (107 more lines)
