My grandfather once remarked, “Mulayam Singh Yadav is the best person for the job of PM of this country because of Muslim appeasement and the wonderful job he has done in UP”.
That was during the time of Babri Masjid demolition. He again repeated his statement during the Gujarat riots in 2002. A person who was once a very close friend of George Fernandes, his statement cannot be frivolous. Mulayam Singh has always succeeded in appealing to the minorities by championing for their cause. Be it the Babri Masjid demolition, the riots that followed that or the Gujarat pogrom in which few social workers belonging to RSS/VHP/BJP/BD displayed their warmth and enthusiasm towards a certain section of the society, Mulayam was always up with arm against the government’s handling of the situation. He has even posed with the traditional Muslim dress to appeal to the senses. He promises grants for the Muslim community, UP being the largest Muslim populated state with Aligarh Muslim University in it. This and that…the list is endless. He is the major factor why Muslims are considered the lucky ones. People often tell me that Muslims always hold the country on ransom and thus get their job done wherease the majority is often a victim because of no special privileges. Well that’s because of the victimized mentality where you build an imaginary world around you based on demented logic.
Anyway coming to the main point about the SICKular parties. Lalu Prasad is another such politician who has always appealed to the Muslims. His efforts in averting religious clashes in praise worthy. But then development is also an issue and that’s primary reason why he lost the election. But have these so called secular parties really made the Muslims beneficiaries of special status? And if they really have then why not Muslims show any sign of improvement? The Sachar committee report is an eye opener! So what is the reality
In a detailed report the Mashriq of January 12 reports that the VHPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s three-day international Hindu conclave is to be held from February 11 to 13, and the government has earmarked Rs. eight crore to Ã¢â‚¬Ëœappease communal HindusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
The Express report adds that the Appellant said the Chief Minister has violated the Constitution by granting eight crore rupees for the VHP conclave.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The revelation of granting Rs. 8 crore to Vishwa Hindu Parishad by the Mulayam Singh administration has created a sensation in the political circles by uncovering one more layer from the close ties between Mulayam and the Sangh Parivar,Ã¢â‚¬? it said. [IndianMuslims.info]
My grandfather also added this to his prophecy, “Even though Mulayam Singh Yadav is no Muslim lover but at least his government will avoid riots. The Congress’s secular ethics are fake. The Babri Masjid was demolished in its regime and then riots were allowed to spread across the country. Its the same party whose workers butchered Sikhs after Indra Gandhi was assassinated. That party can never be trusted. Everything can be compromised for security”
This act of the Mulayam Government comes as no surprise to me or even to Muslims. C’mon he cannot win a state election on just Muslim votes! Incidents like these often develop this feeling in me that would India have been in a much better position as a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ ? At least there would have been no hypocrisy on the parts of these sickular political parties.
