JP targeting Muslim votes in UP; Pashmanda – BJP meeting today; First in the state

Lucknow: Following the Prime Minister’s proposal for the upliftment of backward Muslims, the BJP will hold a meeting with the Pasmanda community in Uttar Pradesh. The meeting will be held on Sunday. This is the first time such a formal meeting is being held in the state.

At the BJP national executive meeting held in July this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked the BJP to work for the upliftment of the backward Muslim community in UP. Based on this, the party’s decision is based on the upcoming elections.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, former Chief Election Commissioner S.Y. Muslim leaders had earlier met Qureshi and former Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung.

The Varanasi Gyanvapi issue, hate speech, population control and the Hijab controversy in Karnataka were all discussed in the meeting that day. At an event in Hyderabad in July, Union Minister Swatantra Dev Singh had hinted at Muslim support for the BJP in UP.

Recently, the party has discussed the services rendered to the people of the country during the eight years of the Modi government. Modi has also mentioned many times about the coming to power for the second time in the UP assembly elections under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The party argued that all sections of the society have benefited from the activities done by the BJP government. Modi’s statement was also meant for the backward class Muslims.

Pashmanda Young Muslim leader Danish Azad Ansari has been appointed Minister of State for Minority Welfare, Waqf and Hajj.
This is also an attempt by the party to find new vote banks. The party’s move is to achieve a massive victory in the 2024 elections with a majority of votes. BJP had already started operations in various states focusing on Muslim votes.

At the same time, BJP’s own leaders have come out against the Muslim community in many places. The BJP leaders had called for a boycott of the Muslim community and not to buy goods from their shops.

The rally held by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in the national capital was also filled with anti-Muslim sentiment. The VHP had called upon Hindus to take up firearms, licensed or unlicensed, and fight to protect the nation’s faith. In the rally, the VHP had also called for the Muslims who commit violence against the Hindus to hang their heads.

The Muslim community in the country is classified into three. Ashraf (Upper Caste), Ajlaf (Backward Caste) and Arsal (Dalit Muslim Caste). In this, Ajlaf and Arsal sections are known as Pashmanda. It is reported that 85 percent of India’s Muslim population belongs to the Pashmanda community. In Uttar Pradesh, the Pashmanda sect is the strongest vote bank of the Muslim sect.
