Shoe throwing a fashion.





sana618
is shoe throwing at political leaders turning out to be a fashion. the latest victim of the shoe throwing, the Indian PM Manmohan Sing.

at least Muntadhar al-Zaidi had a reason for throwing his shoe at President Bush, but what reason did this man have throwing it at his Prime Minister???

Well, at least that is better than shooting him, but probably not very wise. At least Prime Minister Singh did not put him in jail, no doubt for making himself appear good seeing that he was in the process of campaigning to be elected.

Right now ... it's the General Elections - right on schedule, 5 years after the last general elections.
The next Indian government (and Prime Minister) will be decided based on these elections.

The elections for the state legislative assemblies are held in (staggered) bunches - with so many states, these elections are probably what make it seem like there are elections going on all the time.

You see, this is why the person who threw shoes at Bush needed to be punished. Perhaps it was worthwhile, but if one does it, gets off relatively easy, and becomes a national hero, there will be more.

There had been a dearth of shrewd politicians of late, but here we have a new bunch of 'shoe-d' ones.

My understanding following the above postings in this thread was that shoe throwing is a regular occurence at political meetings in India. Is this correct hunnyhiteshseth?

No, infact throwing shoes at politicians is something which is quite new and started only after shoe throwing incident of Bush.
The only way shoes were involved earlier were when during protests effigies of politicians were slapped with shoes and burned!!

So I guess politicians are trained to duck shoes these days?

Maybe shoes will be banned from top-level meetings now.

Perhaps someone should start an improvisation on this theme, perhaps design political objects that can be thrown at politicians? Rubber books or some sort of soft objects with a symbolic message? Smile
