    Why a national party like BJP has not given ticket even to a single muslim candidate in UP elections

    BJP from its origin has grown from strength to strength and has attained universal acceptance through out the country by now. To be called as a national party, the party must have support from people of all religions, communities and all sections of the people. So a national party will provide equal and due importance to all sections of the people in its parties activities. But in the present prestigious UP Assembly elections not even a single muslim candidate was given ticket from their party. A state with 138 million muslim population next to Hindu religion has not got chance to represent in the Assembly from the party. How we can call such a party as a national party which is not giving due respect to all sections of the people? Do you think that Hindutva agenda is still going on from behind the back doors of BJP? Do you think this type of partiality towards various religions is good for the integrity of the country? What is your say about this folks?

    My takes:-

    (a) Election Commission has forbidden seeking vote on the basis of caste, creed, religion or language.
    (b) Political parties chose candidates judging their 'winnability'. BJP has not found any 'winnable' Muslim candidates.

    So, BJP has not given tickets to Muslims in the UP elections and we shoul not break our heads on this issue.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    When the Muslims are not taking BJP as the National party, then why should BJP give them the ticket. Right from the Independence era, the Congress has been betraying the likes and demands of the Muslims by promising the moon and they wont satisfy the voters. And it is pity to see the plight of Muslim voters who are used left and right by the so called secular parties. Who ever got the Muslim votes, they never done the favor to that community. So there is nothing wrong on BJP for not giving ticket to Muslims but try to bring in some good administrative sops to them is something the other parties never thought off.
