Every time there is an article or a story about politics, just go and check the comment section. You will see a majority of Muslims abusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi even though the post may not have any sort of relevance to him or even Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This hatred for Modi had been the basis of many people’s rise to power or fame. Arvind Kejriwal, Dhruv Rathee, Tukde-Tukde gang, NDTV, Mamta Banerjee, K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) and of course the “Branded Gandhi Dynasty” are some of the biggest examples. But then why do Islamic fundamentalists hate Modi so much? Perhaps, there are multiple reasons why Muslims hate Modi.
- He is not a Muslim and all Non-Muslims are KaffirsMuslims are deeply rooted to their Muslim Brotherhood ideology. They don’t treat any Non-Muslim as human which is why Islamic Terrorism have been haunting across the Globe. They simply can’t see a Non-Muslim Man as their leader. No matter how cruel or corrupt a Muslim leader was or would be, they still support him. I remember as a child how Muslims burnt Sachin’s poster when Azhar was accused of match fixing. Then in college, when our teacher asked who would be your idol, one guy proudly shouted Aurangzeb. Even when US attacked Taliban, the Bengal Muslims were glued to news channel and prayed for Osama’s safety. The images of some skull cap wearing youths kicking Amar Jawan or thousands gathering for Yakub’s funeral is still fresh in our minds.
- Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) connectionModi has a RSS background. RSS is an organization that promotes Hindutva ideology among the citizens. Majority of members from the Muslim community simply cannot see any other religion flourish with them around. Also, the fact that RSS-BJP were allegedly involved in the demolition of Babri Masjid makes it really difficult for the Muslims to connect with the BJP. That one incident had lead to riots in Bombay and later the Gujarat riots in 2002, 6th December, is still observed as a black day in the Muslim community and hate speeches are organized across the globe demanding a revenge.Even though, bringing down the Mosque is seen as incorrect act, but then there have been enough evidences that there was always a temple there which was demolished by Babur. Perhaps, RSS is totally right on their perception of fighting for Hindu rights since India was partitioned in 1947 based on religion where two parts went to Muslims and one to Hindus. Our former Prime Minister Indira coined this secular tag for her Vote bank politics, she even changed Congress’s symbol from Cow to Hand, in an apparent gesture to appease Muslims.
- No Muslim AppeasementOne of the things that I have always admired about Modi is that he has never been biased to any religion. Whenever, he had addressed to people, he had always called them Indians where as Congress and other political parties had always created groups. Modi had never given special packages based on religion. He had even refused to organize Iftaar parties or don an Arabic look like Kejriwal, Rahul and Akhilesh. His diplomacy led to creation of a temple in the Middle East which was not welcomed by Indian Muslims. Modi also wanted Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and Citizen Amendment bill which has a big impact on Muslims. Even though practices like Triple Talaq, Burqa and Halala are evil to women yet banning these practices are only seen as threat to Islamic rights.
- The ‘2002 Gujarat Riots’The biggest reason is probably the 2002 riots in Gujarat. Even though, Supreme court has ruled out any involvement of the State Government headed by Narendra Modi in the riots, but Muslims will never get over this. They even never acknowledge the fact that the riots were started by them only when they burnt the Sabarmati Express Coaches. Every action has a reaction and that’s what happened during that time. The riots had so much of magnitude that if the State Government with the support of Center hadn’t acted at the right time, we would have seen a violence more brutal than the partition. Unlike, the state sponsored 1984 Anti-Sikh riots, none of the BJP leaders have been found guilty for the riots even when the case in Supreme court with Congress at the center.
At the end, I would conclude that fundamentalist Muslims see Modi as a threat to their Islamic revolution ideology for India and that is why they will never acknowledge his good work. They are ready to vote anyone who is up against Modi, no matter how corrupt they are because ultimately for a Muslims, there is nothing beyond their religion.
