It is very natural that during election times, atmosphere will be charged in the pursuit of power, more so in multi-party democracy where elections are the primary tool to get political power. So, candidates do make allegations and charges against each other, most of the times unsubstantiated, because purpose is not to prove these but create a narrative in own favour for political purpose. All seasoned politicians understand this. However, there are certain issues which create an undercurrent at subconscious level, purpose is not only electoral gains in short run but also create a long-term narrative in the mind of people. “Jihad” is such a word in Islamic terminology which connects religion with the individuals at deeper subs conscious level.
 
VOte Jihad
 
Post 1947, Muslims were always voting en block. Congress monopolised on their votes through so called appeasement. Subsequently, parties like Samajwadi Party or Lallu’s party replaced Congress in their own areas. Mamta and so many others also made own bastion with the help of Muslim votes. This strategy was doing well. Unite the Muslims as part of appeasement politics and divide Hindus on caste lines. Any attempt to unite Hindus was called communal politics and BJP was blamed for it while appeasement of Muslims became a secular agenda. Muslims will vote en block for a particular party or candidate, it was de facto acceptance, socially and politically. It was done without any use of “Jihad” the word but political conduct was accorded the status of Jihad, without making it so obvious.

Question is how to ensure that Muslims vote in a particular pattern without using the word, Jihad? In last two elections Muslim Ashraf’s leadership is finding it challenging to keep the flock together specially in view of disquiet in Pashmanda community who are basically converted lot, without any real community power and have no love lost for Ashraf’s who have been their exploiters. So, Jihad has to be brought in ...religious meaning to political conduct has been given, now in a open manner because covert means are not working.
 
 
 
 
Now the question is why at this point of time? If previous elections could be fought without giving the name – Vote Jihad, what is so special now.
 
The answer lies in the statement of PM Modi. It is no holds bar situation for anti-Indian forces and Pashmanda Muslims are the tools for them. INDI alliance is party to it. Who is Maria Alam Khan? she is niece of Salman Khurseed, a highly educated family, Ashraf herself, who is instigating Muslims primarily Pashmandas to take voting to Jihad level against BJP. This is communal politics in pure form.
 
 
 
This is real face of so-called Muslim leadership in India who held constitutional position of Law Minister of India but allowing his own niece to advocate Vote Jihad in India. Some points emerge from here.
 
Educated Muslim lot is not enlightened lot all the time. They will do what ever it takes to achieve their goals. If they need Jihad – which has component of violence into it, let it be. International connections will ensure that it is covered up nicely and properly, probably a nice justification to depict it as an expression for freedom will come at the earliest. Leftist and liberal media will provide intellectual back up. Vote Jihad will also ensure that your opponents should not get a chance to vote at all. What is happening in West Bengal is true reflections of Vote Jihad only. It can be extended into Muslim majority areas comfortably. Now, connect it with opposition to EVM. Paper voting helps in operationalising of Vote Jihad because booth capturing is easy .
