The loksabha election fever is at its peak with the first phase of polling is about to begin from next week. Lot of statements from different political parties and leaders are coming, which are creating an impression that this election is become a Hindu Vs Muslim election.
On one side there is BJP which is trying to attract Hindu votes and on the other side there are so many so-called secular parties like congress, JDU, SP, BSP, AAP etc who are fighting to grab the Muslim votes. All these secular parties have only one and only one formula to attract Muslim votes and that is Modi. A cut throat competition is going in between these secular parties for criticizing BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. If party is thinking that by criticizing Modi more and more they can win the hearts of Muslims and can turn their votes in their favor.
Lots on nonsense statements have came out from many leaders. Oxford graduate Salman Khursid called Modi impotent. Congress candidate Imran Masood said to chop Modi . Whether its civil engineer Nitish Kumar or wrestler of Etawah Mulyam Singh, or former School teacher Mayawati or 50+ murder charges accused Mukhtaar Ansari or Arvind Kejriwal of AAP from whom communalism has suddenly became the main issue, all are together criticizing Modi to attract Muslim votes. Even congress president Soniya Gandhi went to Imam Bukhari to seek his help in getting Muslim votes. She made statement that Muslims should not get their votes divided. Imam Bukhari also gave a positive response and asked Muslims to vote for congress. Vasundhara Raje took the charge from BJP side and replied on Imaran Masood statement by saying to see after election who cuts whom.
There can be hundred issues on which votes can be asked from the people, but why everyone is so eager for Muslims votes. Why from north to south east to west every party and leader is talking about Gujarat and Modi only ? Muslims have the history of voting in bulk to single party which is the reason why every party is trying hard to get their votes. Its benefiting BJP as it is becoming Modi Vs all.
Whatever going on is not good for the democracy. Election should be fought on issues which matters to public. Development, growth, inflation, terrorism and corruption should be the issue not secularism or communalism. Hope the voters of the country will understand this.
