BJP is trying to consolidate the Hindu votes through this act says netizens.
Netizens have termed the recent reports about Hindu families fleeing from Kairana in Uttar Pradesh as BJP’s strategy to communalise the atmosphere in the state ahead of the next year assembly polls. According to them, BJP follows divisive agenda and had earlier reaped huge dividends ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha election through the Muzzafar Nagar riots. They also added that BJP is trying to consolidate the Hindu votes through this act. The saffron party has tried to polarise votes before elections in Uttar Pradesh which must be condemned. Even the Samajwadi Party too is responsible for failing to beef up security in the area despite mass exodus of people. They also said that people are smart enough to understand the politics behind this incident as it may backfire for the BJP in the long run. The party should focus on development instead of dividing people on communal lines.
Mukesh Tyagi, a political commentator said, “The BJP and Samajwadi Party are indulging in politics for communalisation and polarisation of UP ahead of assembly polls in the state. Moreover, there is an element of internal BJP politics here as the importance of Hukum Singh in BJP affairs has gone down once Suresh Rana and Sangit Som came to prominence after Muzaffar Nagar riots. So, he is instigating this affair in his area to gain some prominence in Hindutva politics.”
Rashid Rumi, a Business Journalist at Dalal Times said, “BJP fought 2014 Lok Sabha election in the name of development. After completion of two years no development is visible on the ground. However, people of the country have surely realised their propaganda before every assembly election. People defeated them in Delhi, Bihar, West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu. You can say that the party is spreading negative energy and influence people where it is not in power. However people are smart enough and they will teach a lesson to Shah and Modi.
Mrityunjay Prabhakar, a theatre artist termed the issue as RSS propaganda and said, “Look, it’s again the propaganda of RSS which is spreading this rumour that hundreds of Hindu families have fled from Kairana. Let people be aware about facts after conclusion of investigations. Don’t spread fear and hatred among the communities. The hatemongers of RSS want dividends for its political outfit BJP in the next year’s UP assembly elections, as they reaped rich dividends through the Muzzafarnagar incident prior to general elections.
Mujeeb Alam Saifi, a journalist said, “BJP is knows how to sensationalise issues before UP election. They can convert Kairana into Kashmir through one hit and now their followers have increased on social networking sites. Humanity is the need of the hour so people should express their support to the residents through social networking sites.”
Priyabhanshu Ranjan, a journalist said, “Kairana is the new laboratory of BJP and RSS for fanning communal passions. Any Indian citizen, except Modi Bhakts, with a common sense can tell you why BJP leaders (with the hidden help of Samajwadi Party) are hell-bent on vitiating atmosphere of entire western UP. Before Lok Sabha elections 2014, they used Muzaffarnagar for dismantling the communal harmony in the region and now, before the upcoming UP assembly elections, they are using Kairana for polarisation of votes”.
Farrah Shakeb, a social activist and freelance writer said, “BJP and Sangh’s claim of Hindus driven out of Kairana is completely a fake story created to make atmosphere favourable for polarization keeping in mind the forthcoming UP assembly 2017 election. After the failure of Love Jihad, Ghar Wapsi, Gauu Mata and Ram Mandir, they are banking on such issues to fool people. I request all the resident of western UP, don’t just get trapped in Sangh’s Chanakya Neeti. Just wait and watch, it is nothing but a drama which will fail like Love Jihad.”
RTI activist Anil Galgali said, “The situation in Kairana village of Uttar Pradesh is very fluid. The extortionists are ruling the roost, due to which the poor citizens are forced to leave their homes and move out. These activities are reminder of the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir valley. The BJP is treading on the same path undertaken by the Congress. Instead of creating a hype and trying to politicise the situation, the BJP which is ruling in centre and has power to intervene and correct the situation by acting against the anti-social elements.”
Neeraj Daksh, a Senior Geologist at Vadodara said, “Communal riots can be curbed only by rapid and continuous rate of development along with qualitative education. At present, no political party seems to be capable of doing that.”
Omprakash ‘Naman’, a writer, poet, social and political activist said, “BJP’s claim is false and fabricated. BJP’s claim that media is responsible for Hindu migration from Kairana is baseless. Whatever information I have is few businessmen migrated from the place due to demand of extortion from goons. It’s true that at least three traders were killed in last three years.”
RSS backed MP Hukum Singh claims. Muku Kanitkar, Pracharak at Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh said, “Facts cannot be termed as BJP’s “claims”. Verify the facts and then either deny or vindicate. Please don’t trivialize the tragedy of hundreds of families just because they are Hindus.”
Surendra Singh, an active social media participant wrote on his wall, “The Kairana problem if claimed to be true by BJP MP then it is really matter of great concern. What state Samajwadi Party’s government is doing? As per my view, this highlighted problem must be investigated by central agencies and if it found to be true then it should be the last day for this existing government.”
Ramesh Solanki, an IT cell member of Shiv Sena, “Actually, nobody knows the reality about the reports going on in social media. The respective authorities must promptly investigate into the matter and take the rumour mongers to task. It must also be remembered that the Kashmiri Pandits exodus – a two decade old issue – has also been racked up now. Everything has been blown out of proportion in the current scenario. Political parties must not use this as a footboard for their own selfish agendas.”
