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 US, and many who occupy key posts in the White House," said 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.
I could be wrong but did he name his India because it's the color of India ink?
It's a good thing he didn't name his pet cow, India.....
Heh... I just read the caption of the photo. Sheesh some people will get outraged at anything.
Some people just look for a reason to be mad at Bush.
I can think of no better name for a pussy than Chiraq.
He didn't just name the cat India, fer cryin' out loud! She's had the name for 10 years!
Why all of the sudden are they outraged? Democratic memo?
Some people just live to be offended about something.
These people have waaaay to much time on their hands. I am going to name my next dog Mahatma. Just for fun.
The family named her after the former Texas Ranger baseball player, Ruben Sierra, who was called "El Indio".

I think we've found the Honorary Commandant of the Viking Kitties.
I've heard Mrs. Bush refer to her (India) as "kitty", just like my cat (Pudder).
What's the big deal? Cats answer to the electic can opener only.
subheadline: "Indian youths just don't have enough to do"
Historically it includes Myanmar (Burma), Sri Lanka, Bengla Desh, Nepal, Kashmir, Pakistan, chunks of Afghanistan, Bhutan, and by some accounts, major islands in Indonesia and along the Thai and Malaysian coasts.
I think "W", if he's going to respond to this at all, ought to see what all those other folks think about it first.
Here's a message to the whiners of the world:
If you are offended about anything---I DON'T CARE!! STOP WHINING.
i vote for that.
Tempest in teapot really... I see India also has wayward skulls full of mush with nothing to do!
Some people have way too much time on their hands.
