1946 vs. 2014: Why should Nationalists unite, and go out and vote for BJP and its allies

The 2014  Parliamentary Elections are extra-ordinary. They are as historic as the provincial assembly elections in January 1946 when the Islamists across the nation voted en-bloc to support the Muslim League led by Jinnah.  The League won in the states of Sindh & Punjab and Bengal. That finally led to the division of Mother India and creation of Pakistan and the bloody aftermath thereafter that saw the genocide of Hindus at Noakhali, Bengal. Noakhali Genocide

The nationalists sunk their caste, creed, and regional differences and united behind Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel who were termed as Hindu leaders by maulanas and padres. A minuscule percentage of nationalist Muslims and Christians defied the call of their mosques and churches and took a nationalist stand. It was Sardar Patel who masterminded the nationalist response. Later, Nehru’s stupidity provided a leeway to Jinnah that finally led to the creation of Pakistan.

And look at the other fact. The Communists played a spoilsport in these elections, both in Punjab & Sindh and in Bengal. They divided the nationalist vote. They had also sided with the British during the Quit India movement.

A similar scenario exists today. You have heard the devious call of maulanas and padres to defeat BJP and Modi. They treat Modi as a Hindu leader the way they treated Gandhi and Patel in 1946 in spite of the fact that both the leaders, without disowning their Hindu legacy, acted in the most secular way. The Padres think Narendra Modi will stop their ongoing proselytization programme in the tribal belts of India. The fact is that the Government of Gujarat has only followed the existing laws related to conversions.

The Islamists hate Modi and BJP because they perceive them as antagonistic to their political objectives. They looked at Gandhi and Patel in the same way, and openly termed them as Hindu leaders. Even the British looked at Gandhi and Patel as Hindu leaders. But for the unity of the nationalists, including Akalis, the whole of Punjab would have gone to Pakistan. 

The call of various maulanas and padres to polarize their respective religious denominations against the BJP and Modi must be taken seriously and with great alarm by those who care for the territorial integrity of India. It’s the last ditch effort to stop the march of BJP and Modi towards victory. Their rabid antagonism towards Modi is deliberate and mischievous and has no real basis.

Their objective is to create circumstances that lead to a fractured mandate. An unstable government and a fractured electorate provide them the necessary political leverage to carry on with their designs to break India and compromise its essentially pluralist Hindu polity. This was the reason they tried to prop up political outfits like AAP, realizing very well that Sonia led Congress was not good enough to meet Modi’s electoral challenge. The sole purpose of Aap is to divide the anti-establishment and nationalist vote and ensure a weak government, the long cherished wish of the enemies of our nation.

So, I appeal to all nationalists to sink their caste, creed, religious, and regional differences and vote to bring a strong and stable nationalist government led by Narendra Modi.

  1. We need a strong and stable government to save investments worth thousands of crores of aam aadmis, retirees, and working people. We cannot turn governance into a street tamasha and theatre at this juncture.
  2. We need a strong and stable government to ensure our internal and external security and give a fitting response to the enemies of our nation.
  3. We need a stable and strong government to hold it accountable. Only such a government cannot get away with the excuse that since it did not have a majority on its own, it could not perform. That's what Kejariwal did. That's what MMS did for ten years. Both blamed others for their failures.
  4. We need a strong and stable government to deal with divisive forces out to break our nation and its spirit.
  5. We need a strong and stable government to ensure quick decision-making and faster economic growth to generate employment.
  6. We also need a strong and decisive leader who believes in federal principles and does not squander away the public money to distribute freebies and to bribe poor voters to win elections.
