December 10:

As part of his strategy to reach out beyond his core Hindu constituency after his Sadbhavana fast, Narendra Modi and his team carefully mulled over giving party ticket to a Muslim candidate in the forthcoming state elections but finally decided not to do so. Some of his team members believed that fielding a Muslim candidate would soften his anti-Muslim image but some thought it could alienate BJP’s core Hindutva constituency. Sources say that Modi backslid thinking that the symbolic gesture may confuse the majority who see Modi as a savior of the Hindus. Keeping Gujarat’s majority sentiments in mind Modi vetoed the plan.

When talking in public Modi talks of bettering the lives of “six crore Gujaratis” which include all religious groups but when it comes to election strategy it is his Hindutva ideology which prevails. Modi also shrink from giving ticket to a Muslim because the newly floated GPP has also done the same if Modi gives ticket to Muslim candidate his core constituency would drift towards GPP. In short Modi and his team don’t believe in appeasement of Muslims at the cost of winnability.

Appease is a wrong word

Appease is a wrong word to use as it gives the impression that allowing muslims to be a part of the mainstream power sharing equation is tatamount to pandering to the community. A better headline would have been "Modi continues his politics of hate by excluding muslims". Siasat should do some editing of its own before reprinting articles wholesale from other sourses, otherwise it becomes an unwitting carrier of anti muslim articles that serve the BJP/VHP/RSS/Shiv Sena agenda.

modi hindutwa policy

muslims should not expect some thing good from sangh parivar. how they can change their basic policy of anti muslim. congress don't favour muslims but not against.

So he wants to see muslims as lower class citizens but not law makers.

Not true

Muslims who are patriotic have become President,CM, Governor etc Police chief,AirForce chief(list is endless)
Those who support Afzal Guru and Abdul Qadir cant be trusted with the responsibility of the state.
Muslims should condemn the train burning at Godhra by fellow Muslims to win trust of Gujaratis.

Godhra - A trigger to assault muslims by hindus

If muslims do then definitely but what you people did after Godhra is unforgivable. You'll be punished definitely how ......???

Unite we stand

No problem…! If Muslims in Gujarat are not given the election ticket...but remember they can play a decisive factor while balancing and casting votes to other party as happened in UP election result. The only condition is they should unite for support to any one party.
