The BJP led by Mr. Modi which won the Lok Sabha Election in May 2014, was like the Roman god Janus, which had two faces, one looking forward, and the other looking backward. The forward looking face was called 'vikas', while the backward looking face was called ' Hindutva'. This was a beautiful combination, and a sure shot formula for victory.
The youth in India, seeing only the forward looking face, and thinking that this meant millions of jobs will be created for them by that superman with Alladin's magic lamp, voted en masse for Mr. Modi in the Lok Sabha Elections, and gave him a resounding victory
After the victory of the BJP, however, the dream was shattered for the Indian youth because they discovered there were no jobs ( see my blog ' The Dream has Evaporated ' in justicekatju.blogspot.in ). It was discovered painfully that the forward looking face was not a face at all but only a mask, and that the youth had been hoodwinked and taken for a ride.
In fact the BJP had, and has always had, only one face, that is, the backward looking face, which meant Ram Mandir, love jihad, ghar wapasi, 'haramzadas', beef ban, vandalizing churches etc. In other words, the BJP has only one agenda, and that is hatred of Muslims and Christians, and that is because BJP is really controlled by RSS, which is rabidly anti minority.
The BJP Govt. of India has really no solution to the real problems facing the country---massive poverty, massive unemployment, massive healthcare and education problems, massive malnourishment of our children, numerous farmers suicides, etc. So what can it do ?
It can only try to divert the attention of the people from their real problems to inciting communal tension and communal riots, the latest moves being seeking to make yoga and suryanamaskar compulsory in schools, the whole idea being to secure a vote bank.
In other words, find a scapegoat on whom the hatred can be directed. For Hitler it was the Jews who were responsible for all the ills of the German people, for BJP it is the Muslims and Christians.
