Those saying Modi has nothing to do with Dadri killing must see this

The series of beef bans and the atmosphere of polarisation on beef and meat has resulted in a mob lynching in Dadri, at just 60 kms from Delhi.

While it is true that the UP govt needs to be hold accountable for immediate action, especially in the wake of the news from Dadri that the local police has tried to threaten the suffering family against naming local BJP leaders, the whole incident should be seen in the context of Modi’s own vitriolic against beef-eating, in the run up to the 2014 elections and before that.

Here are two videos where Modi is seen speaking on the issue of beef. And he is no different from Sadhvi Prachi and Mahesh Sharma, who are called ‘fringe’ elements despite their repeated communal exhortations that goes unchecked by Modi.

“Let’s make no bones in saying that Modi himself is the engineer of the beef ban gimmick. Okay, debate the beef ban, but violence? Who instigated BJP-RSS workers? Can Modi’s role in turmoil be ignored?

Today, the renowned columnist and author, Tavleen Singh, has written an OpEd in Indian Express. In it she comes down heavily against the Dadri incident with a warning in the, saying, “if he (Modi) fails to give India change, development and prosperity, it will be because of enemies inside his own house”. The enemies who according to her (BJP CMs) are occupied with inconsequential beef bans.

Well, this is a classic case of ‘selective amnesia’. Perhaps, Tavleen Singh forgot PM Modi’s ‘Pink Revolution’ rhetoric in his election speeches.”

    Yesterday we have been talking about the ‘hyper jubilant society’ who believes development will actually bring everything they had dreamt for so long. And we decided to expose this word ‘development’. Because beef and radicalism is a good news for them, the more it will happen the more they will support this government, the more we will cry for it the more they will unite against us. I am not afraid of their unity, what I am worried about is their ‘unreasonable’ quest to justify everything in the name of ‘development’.

      Yes anything goes in the name of “development”…rising prices, killing of dalits, mobs to harass kids so they remain “within limits”, especially hatred of other communities

    This is not news. We always knew that Modi would not be trying to control the ‘fringe’ elements because he himself is the ‘Fringe’. However, what many people do not realise is that a large segment of the 30% who have voted for BJP this time have voted because Modi represents the fringe.
