Hypocrisy at its Peak: Rajnath Singh meets Muslim clerics


When Congress chief Sonia Gandhi met Shahi Imam of the Jama Masjid recently in Delhi, all the opposition parties lashed at her saying this way the Congress is trying to polarise and diveide the people on the lines of religion. Sonia Gandhi had met Syed Ahmed Bukhari and reportedly asked the Imam to ensure that secular votes in India do not get divided. BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and other senior members came down heavily on Sonia Gandhi and Congress and accused them of open communalism by seeking votes on the basis of religion.

But BJP forgot that who does not indulge in such politics in this country at the time of elections. Don’t they flaunt their association with various guru’s on public platforms to gain the support of their followers. what was the motive of Narendra Modi meeting South Super star Rajnikanth just at the time of elections? Was it just a friendly meeting? Then what was the need of it to publicise it so openly? Just to gain the votes in the South where Rajnikanth has a great following.

The BJP president Rajnath Singh in a bid to woo the Muslims base in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh yesterday met few clerics of the Muslim community. Singh tweeted along with the picture of his meeting with them,”Had meetings with renowned clerics like Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, Maulana Kahild Rasheed and Maulana Kalbe Jawad in Lucknow,”. Later talking to reporters, Rajnath said “we have to take people from all streams of the society belonging to different religions. As party President and as a candidate (from Lucknow), I decided to pay respect to all religious leaders”, he added.

These meeting with Muslim sections come in the wake of Rajnath Singh’s candidacy from Lucknow for the 16th Lok Sabha Elections. Given the party’s reputation with the minority community, BJP has always struggled to get their votes which has been a major cause of concern. But right now when Congress is facing the incumbency factor and AAP is also on the front, BJP is doing everything to get some of the votes while they know that the divide of Muslim votes between Congress and AAP will benefit them only. With its Hindutva image, the BJP has always maintained that it does not divide the people on religion lines. But cases like Babri Masjid, Gujarat riots of 2002 and then projection of Narendra Modi as its PM candidate has not been forgotten by most muslims of the nation. BJP even has come up with a chapter on Muslims in its manifesto released recently, but how far will that be taken seriously by this minority community cannot be said as of now. Also the new association of BJP president with these Muslim clerics in Lucknow ahead of the polls, cannot be taken as a support as we have various examples of this kind of meetings wherein the end results show the opposite results. But Congress and other parties right now has got a new issue to talk and attack BJP on.

    (April 15 ‘14) Bharatiya Janata Party is a Goonda Party which chases a Goonda (Modi) instead of worshipping this Avatar who can make India the supreme military and economic power in the world immediately (see below); it must be destroyed.

    (April 9 ‘14) Azam Khan says India’s Muslim soldiers won the Kargil war for India. I have said for years that the Kargil war was started by Pakistan’s army chief Musharraf on the CIA’s orders to make Vajpayee win the election that was pending after he had lost a vote of confidence as prime minister; that Hindu-Muslim conflict before 1947 was created and managed by the Intelligence Bureau leading to the partition of the country and its Indian and Pakistani successors (RAW & ISI which cooperated in the Kargil war & terror attacks such as the November 26, 2008 attack on Mumbai, etc.) continue to do so after 1947.

    (April 4-6 ‘14) The opinions and votes of India’s slave population suffering from mass-psychosis (below) do not matter; only nuclear weapons matter — to simultaneously destroy Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. In a letter dated July 27, 1982 to Indira Gandhi as prime minister I referred to an act, by American Jews, that was “the equivalent of an annihilatory nuclear first strike on India”. In her reply dated July 29, 1982 she wrote “Dear Mr. Chandra, I have received your letter dated July 27, 1982 and am passing it on to my Principal Secretary to deal with it. Sincerely, Indira Gandhi”. In December, 1982 I wrote to her “There was sudden, terminal, overwhelming violence against me during a seminar at Harvard University and rather similar occurrences earlier… India can expect sudden, annihilatory violence … with nuclear weapons … against its population … unless it can mount a decisively superior force to stop it”. Following my advice, India’s strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme and the Centre for Advanced Technology, was started to give India victory in a nuclear war with the United States and because of my influence on her, Indira Gandhi as prime minister was assassinated by CIA-RAW and later when Rajiv Gandhi realized the truth of what I had written to her after the American invasion of Iraq which was the first Gulf War, he was also assassinated by CIA-RAW. In the past few years, I have had India’s nuclear forces emplace nuclear warheads in Washington, New York and other U.S. cities and India is now in a position to destroy the United States without being destroyed. In fact, India is in a position now to destroy the United States without itself suffering a single casualty by triggering its nuclear warheads emplaced in Washington and New York with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be similarly destroyed if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. Note that Vajpayee could not have done that because of his relationship with the CIA which brought and kept him in office. The same is the case with all other Indian politicians because of their participation in the CIA’s crimes against me which the CIA can threaten to expose.

    This is what I said when asked if India is just a pawn. “Yes, it is a pawn, a slave, a society suffering from mass-psychosis. Despite the recent revelations about M. K. Gandhi being a homosexual who reveled in his “slavery with a vengeance” to the white man, who engaged in a fake ‘freedom struggle” with the British managed by the Intelligence Bureau, the entire Indian government went to his memorial on his death anniversary this January 30, 2012 to pay tribute. India is a very sick society. (I had urged that all his portraits in government offices, etc. be burned). … By saying that India is suffering from mass-psychosis, I am being generous and kind of giving it the excuse of being ill (of the several hats I wear, I am also a mental health professional) but a country of 1.2 billion people being so terrified of much smaller numbers of people from half way around the world cannot really be excused. … ” (see RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom ).

    The media has left no stone unturned to project BJP as an anti-minoity party. If BJP has to counter such projections, then they need to meet such people and communicate with such communities. Anti-Muslim projection by the media is successful, despite BJP having muslim members in their ranks.

    Moreover, the meeting was openly shot unlike Sonia Gandhi’s closed door meeting (And/or secret meetings). Not to forget that Rajnath’s meet was not followed by appeal to vote for a particular party. However, the timing is questionable. One can argue that due to Sonia/Congress’s recent attacks on BJP, such a meeting may have been necessary to clear the air.
