BJP won’t encourage division based on Religion

via HK published on January 28, 2008

New Delhi: Sending strong signals to the Minority Pampering policies of present UPA Government, BJP National executive today took a strong stand against dividing the Nation on Communal lines.

Rajnath Singh said the word “minority” has created a crisis in the country and demanded that it be redefined as he lashed out at the Government’s “minority appeasement” policies. “I request the government to legally define the term minority and also appropriately determine in what spheres it would be applicable,” he said noting that many misconceptions are associated with the term.

The BJP chief said “various court judgements are also echoing questions such as who is a minority, on what basis and in which region and this takes different connotations depending upon the prevailing situation and the geographical area in different parts of the country.”

He said the BJP will go to any limit to thwart any move to introduce “communal budgeting” as he criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for saying that minorities should have the first claim on national resources. BJP after returning to power would discontinue with the scheme of allocating more funds to minority-dominated districts and there is no question about allocating reservation on Religious basis, Singh added
