Is the opposition itself increasing its difficulty by raising the issue of Hindutva?


  • Akhilesh’s talk started with Jinnah via Pakistan, being a Muslim, went to Hindutva
  • Rajbhar also gave a chance to BJP by blaming the RSS for the partition.
  • After Congress leader Salman Khurshid, Rahul Gandhi and Rashid Alvi also followed the path of Akhilesh

New Delhi
In view of the elections to five states, when the BJP’s core team is trying to overcome the resentment arising out of the farmers’ agitation, in the meantime such a statement of Akhilesh Yadav came, which gave the BJP space as per its wish. On the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel, knowingly or unknowingly, Akhilesh Yadav sat referring to Jinnah. He said- ‘Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Jawaharlal Nehru and Jinnah came out of the same institution. Became a barrister and he got freedom for the country. What was it then, BJP caught the issue. “Akhilesh has insulted Gandhi and Patel by comparing him to Jinnah. Then the talk that started with Jinnah, via Pakistan, went to Hindutva while being a Muslim.

Told RSS responsible for the partition of the country
Fearing to be left behind by other issues ahead of this debate, Mayawati accused Akhilesh Yadav and BJP of narcissism, then Owaisi advised Akhilesh to change his advisor. He said that if Akhilesh thinks that by mentioning Jinnah he will please Muslims, then he is making a mistake. Indian Muslims have nothing to do with Jinnah. Despite this, Omprakash Rajbhar, president of Suheldev Samaj Party, who was once a minister in the Yogi government in UP and announced to contest the elections in alliance with Akhilesh Yadav, also added fuel to the fire by blaming the RSS instead of Jinnah for the partition of the country. Did the job of pouring. Rajbhar even said that if Jinnah had been made the first Prime Minister of independent India, there would have been no partition. The debate that started on Rajbhar’s statement also eventually turned into the concept of Hindutva.

Alvi, Rahul, Salman also gave a chance
On the statement of Akhilesh Yadav, the Congress tried to raise the issues of the BJP, but later the Congress leaders themselves started competing to catch Akhilesh’s path. Rashid Alvi, one of the senior leaders, went to address a program in UP. There he engaged in reciting the episode of Ramayana, after which the controversy erupted, the debate centered on Hinduism, Hindutva and Ram. BJP is trying to prove through Rashid Alvi’s statement that he has called those who say Jai Shri Ram as demons. BJP said that how much poison is mixed in the thoughts of Congress towards Ram Bhakts, it is proved by this leader’s statement.

Jinnah, the hero of independence… Comparison with Gandhi-Nehru, what did Akhilesh say

Cleanliness doesn’t matter after controversy
Rashid Alvi is roaming around clarifying that he did not call all the people who spoke Jai Shri Ram as demons, but in that context a demon took the form of a sage and said Jai Shri Ram, so he said that all the monks who spoke Jai Shri Ram It may not be, there may be demons in it, but their cleanliness is not able to end this dispute because when a dispute arises then cleanliness does not matter. After this, Rahul Gandhi also invited controversy by explaining the ideology of Shiva. BJP is calling his statement an insult to Hinduism and Hindutva. After this, another senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid is under the scanner for insulting Hindutva through his book. The allegation against him is that in his book ‘Sunrise Over Ayodhya’, which came in the market last week, he has compared Hindutva with terrorist organizations ISIS and Boko Haram. Salman is now clarifying that ‘I have written in this book that those who misuse Hinduism, they are supporters of IS and Boko Haram.’

Is this the fault of the opposition
After the change in the country’s politics since 2014, the opposition itself has been accusing that BJP focuses on Hindu-Muslim and Pakistan on the occasion of elections to divert the issues and avoid accountability, but the big question arises. Who is preparing the pitch for BJP for this? Now when elections are to be held in five states including UP, Uttarakhand and Punjab in the next three to four months, such issues were raised by the opposition itself, on which the BJP got a chance to retaliate. It was through the opposition that the BJP got an opportunity to go to the issues which ultimately proved to be harmful for the opposition.

Akhilesh Yadav hasn’t learned lessons from 2017?
Akhilesh Yadav regrets till date in view of the results of 2017 UP elections that when he was trying to get votes through his government’s works from 2012 to 2017 BJP won the election by raising the issue of cremation and graveyard but in 2022 Before the election, Akhilesh Yadav gave the BJP a chance to change the election mood by bringing Jinnah in the middle. Since then, in all the meetings of CM Yogi Adityanath and other senior BJP leaders in UP, Jinnah’s issue is rising most prominently. Similarly, in other election states, the BJP has got a chance to be an attacker because of the statements of Congress leaders.

Why are Mayawati and Owaisi worried?
Whatever is happening, especially in UP, has raised concerns for both BSP chief Mayawati and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi. Actually both these leaders have hope from UP itself. For BSP, this election is a fight for survival. Both these leaders feel that in the event of polarization on religious lines, the fight can be reduced to BJP and SP and they do not want this. On the other hand, concern has increased in the Congress over the issue of Hindutva re-emerging. A section of the party believes that it is more likely to cause damage.
