BJP teaching secularsim?
Recently the vanquished RSS cadreman Vajpayee chided Manmohan Singh government for removing RSS governors and inducting E Ahamed, a Muslim Leaguer, as a minister. How can Mr Vapjpayee speak such things when he himself is a member of once banned communal outfit? How he became PM? Mr Ahamed or for that matter any Muslim League member never spoke a word of hatred against any community in its 50 years of existence. It is a post-Independence political party upholding Constitution of India and rule of law. Joining hands with BJP by communists is nauseating. The very same communists were in league with the National League or IUML from time to time. They have no right to accuse UPA for its decision. Muslims cannot have a party of their own for taking up their own problems which no one wants to raise for fear of appeasement? If RSS can have BJP, if Christians can have Kerala Congress, if Dalits can have Republican Party and BSP, why Muslims cannot have their own party? The four removed Governors had no other qualities, specialties or qualification than being long-time RSS volunteers preaching hatred towards minorities. As per the spirit of the Constitution, a secular person with a record of special achievement who are normally not in politics should occupy posts of president and governor. But the very same government of Mr Vajpayee, thought it right to appoint RSS members as governors, making mockery of decency. Now he is trying to teach Congress-led UPA the rules of secularism and decency. UPA has not appointed communalists as governors but politicians.
Today politicians claim that they are Jan Sevaks (servants of the people). So there is no point in Vajpayee's blurting out against UPA. He has already been humiliated for his perennial double talk, as if he has two tongues in one mouth. He may keep quiet for sometime if he does not want to be ridiculed by his own people. His image has gone down and he is not considered as a right man in the wrong party any more. He is a wrong man, as always.
The controversy regarding five percent reservation to deserving Muslims in AP is criticized by BJP. If backward communities in Hinduism can have reservation, Muslims too can have reservation for the very same reason. No less than 95 percent Muslims are poor. Most of them are illiterate,
under-employed, beggars, destitutes, thanks to the uneven distribution of wealth by successive governments. Muslims have been ignored by all and always blamed for the creation of Pakistan which is in fact an idea planted by the British and RSS. Muslims deserve batter treatment. They want their rights in this free nation.
