OPINION: Don’t let the Politics of hatred win again
By Adze Faizan
The politics of hate, divide and supremacy will destroy our country if we don’t wake up.
In 2014, Narendra Modi became Prime minister. At that time the atmosphere was very much different people were fed up with corruption under then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Now we have seen the atmosphere in last five years under Modi’s leadership.
The unprepared and poor implementation of demonetisation, many people died standing in the bank lines during this process. It was said that this step of government will reduce the terrorism in Kashmir and naxalism, but we have seen nothing has reduced and the recent Pulwama attack is the fresh example.
Many Indian Muslims killed in the name of Gau-raksha openly in broad day light and no one got punished as the BJP have supported them.
Further, the Kathua rapists were openly supported by the local BJP leaders. The Unnao rape accused was associated with BJP.
Four supreme court judges had to come out holding a press conference against the government’s influence in the internal supreme court matters.
And we have seen the corporate media houses cheering for the party in power. Prime minister giving scripted interviews to the channels serving his party agenda.
This government has tried to influence each and every institution whether it’s an RBI or CBI. Unemployment rate is all time high and government is not even publishing data.
Army’s work is being used for the political gains, Bollywood movies have been made with the subtle agendas of the ruling party.
We Indian Voters have to understand the fact that we are not going for a presidential election, the narrative is being made that “if not Modi who else”.
Was India not a powerful nation before 2014? Certainly it was.
The politics of hate, divide and supremacy will destroy our country if we don’t wake up. The narrative which is being spread that the 14.2% of Muslims in India will overpower 79.2% of Hindus if BJP not voted to power, think wisely how can this narrative be right.
Remember each of these things before you vote in this general election of 2019. Each vote matters, your vote is powerful don’t fall for this propaganda and gimmicks of Bhartiya Janata Party.
Vote against the hatred, vote to save democracy, vote to save the constitution and vote for a secular party and this is how a country prosper and develop.
