When 'communal' Modi defined 'secularism' ?

After the Wharton India Economic Forum cancelled Mr Narendra Modi’s address to the prestigious annual event due to opposition from a section of professors and students of the University of Pennsylvania, Gujarat’s  Chief Minister, Narendra Modi addressed the Indian diaspora in Edison, New Jersey, Chicago and Illinois on March 9 via video
conferencing.

While addressing the Indo-American community Modi shared his definition of secularism as “India First” .

While the whole speech was interesting enough to judge Modi’s political approach and strategic statements keeping 2014 General Elections in mind, the definition of secularism makes me restless enough to think about the literal meaning of secularism in our country since Independence.

What is secularism in India,post independence ? In India, a country packed with people following different faith,speaking different languages and following different lifestyles, the meaning of secularism , so far, has been vote bank politics and nothing else! Face it! The term minority got hyped not for the minorities but for vested political interest .The political well-wishers of schedule – castes/tribes and people following religions with lesser density, made sure they use every individual following under their set !

Result – Its been more than 60 years since we are a free land yet honour-killing still exists and so does the constant fear of communal riots.
A concerning question to think about – What have the secular political forces given India while they had got the maximum opportunity to rule the nation ? Were/Are they really bothered going beyond their vote bank interests and think about India , first ?

No , I am not a die-hard , Narendra Modi fan.I am not going crazy to see him be the next Prime Minister or feel he is the only way out for India to shine.Relax ! 2002 Gujarat riots brought Narendra Modi the recognition and for any secular Indian(including me) it was not a right image of the name.A name which is a synonym to development 11 years since then ! Although his achievements can never justify his controversial role(as the chief minister of the state of Gujarat) in 2002 riots yet it cannot be denied as well that he has actually worked for his state, hard enough! He has worked hard for who he is today and just not played politics like many ‘secular’ politicians of the nation have done for over few decades now.

Yes, criticisms are there and even God has critics and thankfully he is not God for many ! They are minimal(criticisms and people who consider him God, both 🙂 ).While,one can argue the minorities(Muslims)of the state have no choice but to go with the political flow of the state to seek development of their constituencies,it is also noteworthy that the Muslim dominated constituencies have actually seen development under BJP’s regime and it was this time, that even the minority dominated constituencies (previously,Congress dominated) voted for the “communal leader”-Modi.

While,many of us,the urban,literate,’secular’, Indians may still find Modi an uncomfortable figure to talk positive about,there is no denying he is a great speaker and a consistent political performer. Modi has already made himself number one of the favorites as the Prime Ministerial Candidate for 2014 General Elections(As per many surveys. Surveys are just surveys so anti-Modis need not worry 🙂 ).

Coming back to Narendra Modi’s definition of secularism-when he says secularism to him is “India First” he should make sense even to an Indian who may hate him the most. Why ? Secularism is to unite and its our nation which unites us-Indians with varied skin colour,faith,languages,lifestyle,castes, state and many more sub-sets ! Hence our nation should be our foremost priority for every Indian!! Is considering caste,religion,state or language above national identity not Communal-ism ? Should the so called secular political forces not stop categorizing Indians as schedule castes and tribes and as Christians and Muslims by giving them certain privileges over the majority and making the rift deeper! Being an Indian one should give importance to his nationality over his caste or religion ! Secularism in true sense is -Nation First !

Minority support to Modi ?

BJP won 47 out of 75 seats in municipal corporation elections. BJP aka Narendra Modi ,in Gujarat,with 24 Muslim candidates who all won it for the party, clearly indicate that even the minorities understand development would mean nothing but supporting Narendra Modi. Difficult to analyse if the Muslims of the state have actually forgiven Chief Minister Modi for the 2002 riots or it is just that they do not have any option but BJP if they seek to progress . With Congress which had won town elections for decades ended up winning none, the message seems clear.

Narendra Modi Vs Rahul Gandhi is a media joke-Congress

Congress has declared that Rahul Gandhi Vs Narendra Modi in 2014 General Elections is a ‘media joke‘ and that they have democratic procedure of electing a Prime Ministerial Candidate on behalf of the party . Well, Modi’s is yet another victory in Gujarat and Congress’ failure in Uttar Pradesh Elections where the campaign was led by Rahul Gandhi is self-explaining as to why Congress has no face to show Rahul Gandhi as competitor against Narendra Modi for prime ministerial post.

Muslim dominated constituencies voted for Modi

BJP winning 12 out of 19 Muslim vote bank dominated seats in Gujarat has given a strong message to the ‘Secular’ Congress party and has also indicated that the Muslims in Gujarat have moved beyond 2002.Interestingly,BJP did not give ticket to any Muslim candidate yet the miraculous  support to Modi should let the Congress and other parties, who claim to be SECULAR,get the message that “aam aadmi’ (common man) needs a govt which delivers and not just sympathize in the name of minority community and schedule caste and tribe.

Gujarat votes for Modi

It is Narendra Modi yet again who would be the Chief Minister of Gujarat fight all odds. Neither Keshubhai Patel splitting out of BJP nor Congress’ repeated secular mask could stop brand ‘MODI’ from being the chosen one yet again. Interestingly, constituencies which were muslim dominated, as well,voted in favour of BJP. While the win in Gujarat has not shocked the Congress yet managing a win with almost 2/3rd majority has clearly given Narendra Modi the topmost position in BJP and has fueled the debate of his candidature as the PM face for NDA for the upcoming 2014 General Elections.

Modi refers PM as ‘Moun’ Mohan Singh ?

Moun in Hindi means ‘Silent’ and thats how Gujarat CM prefers to address PM Manmohan Singh.No matter,what Mr Modi says about the PM,never has Manmohan Singh responded back in agitation,not only against Modi but anyone who has ever criticized Dr Singh for remaining speechless on all major issues related to the country.

Should he be appreciated for never involving himself in any verbal conflicts or be criticized that he genuinely has no answers to support the ills of his govt?  🙁
