  Nirj Deva (ECR ), blue-card question . Mr Van Orden, do you accept that it is quite absurd for the Indian authorities, in sentencing these people, to treat everyone the same?

On a ship the captain directs the course of action. He told the crew to get diesel from India, and the crew had to obey. If the crew had disobeyed they would have been shot for mutiny. If they obey, they are imprisoned by the Indian authorities, who do not seem to understand the distinction between a group of people obeying orders and not. Would Mr Van Orden agree with this?
