Days after the BJP won the landslide victory in the UP elections; posters have appeared in a village in Bareilly district asking Muslim residents to “leave immediately”
More than dozens of posters were seen on the walls in Jianagla village, which was signed by the “Hindus of the village” and with the name of a BJP MP on them.
The posters which carried the message in Hindi asked the Muslims of India to leave the country by the end of the year. With a strongly worded message, the letter threats the Muslims to leave the country or face the wrath in the same way the Muslims are facing in the US. “With BJP in Uttar Pradesh Hindus of the village would do what US President Trump is doing to Muslims in that country” the message reportedly said.
In the recent concluded UP elections, the BJP swept away the seats in Muslim dominant populations where the BSP and SP used to enjoy the power. From all six constituencies in riot-hit Muzaffarnagar to Deoband in Saharanpur, and in Bareilly, Bijnor and Moradabad where Muslims are in majority, the BJP swept the polls.
The police have removed most of the posters in Jianagla and a FIR has been lodged. Five young men from the village have also been picked up for questioning.
Such incidents in the country mock the slogan of PM Narendra Modi “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas.” It also raises the questions on the Narendra Modi-led NDA government the control over the ground workers.
