Death of Democracy & Secularism

The victory of BJP in UP by a massive margin is in fact, is the death of democracy. Maybe BJP is the only party which democratically elects their leaders while Congress and SP chose nepotism, and AAP fires those who raise their voice against the Supreme Leader. Maybe Communism is a totalitarian ideology which wants a single party system, against the basic idea of democracy. But that is not a good enough reason to treat BJP as a democratic party and vote them to power. And look at the voting pattern. People across the caste line have voted for them. Aren’t they supposed to be divided by caste line and vote the party which we say is “their” party? Even Muslims voted for BJP. Can you believe that? Shouldn’t they hate a party which is a “Hindu” Nationalist Party? All Muslims – Shia, Bohra, Ahmadiyya – shouldn’t be hating the same people as Sunnis? Aren’t they suppose to vote those who the Imams and Mullahs ask them to vote? Why are they deciding to think for themselves? Haven’t we taught everyone whom should they hate? This is the biggest blow to the Democracy the way we know.

And all this happened because the secular votes got divided. There is always this problem with Secular voters. Whenever they see the symbol of parties like MIM, they will get confused. On the other hand, the non-secular Hindu votes got consolidated. Dalits, Thakur, Brahmin, OBC – everyone voted for Communal BJP. That’s mainly because of the communal polarization tactics of the BJP. Look at the way they asked for equal treatment for Hindus as well. I mean asking for “Shamshan” just because Muslims are getting “Kabristan” is outright communal. Will secularism ever come back in this Country? People should realize that Modi is a communal leader who talks about “Uniform Civil Code” and “One Country One Rule” and not a secular leader like Rajiv Gandhi who diluted the judgment of  Shah Bano Begum case just to protect secular fabrics of this country.
