20 Reasons Why Modi is Divisive.


Since 2002 the entire political discourse has been centred around 2 issues. Corruption in UPA govt and to cover that up Congress played 2002 card calling BJP’s most popular leader Narendra Modi, divisive. It’s another issue that Modi’s increasing popularity has started dividing UPA and Congress.

“Modi is fascist.”

“Modi is majoritarian.”

“Modi is a polarising figure who will divide the country.”

It made me wonder why should a divisive man build a Statue of Unity, world’s tallest, in case you’d didn’t know.

Last one year I have devoted a lot of time understanding the nuances of Indian Politics. I have spent many sleepless nights researching various ideologies, specially BJP’s as I am convinced that Communal thinking is one of the biggest threats as well as challenge for a forward moving India. Now, I have come to a conclusion that the biggest threat to India is none other than a divisive leader aspiring to be India’s Prime Minister – Narendra Modi.

And I came upon this wonderful list which will state point by point why Modi is divisive. (Please bear in mind these are in the context of Elections 2014. If we start going back in time than we will have to go back to Babur.)

1. One of the longest serving Prime Ministers of India Shri Manmohan Singh says ‘Minorities’ must have first claim on the nation’s resources.

But, Modi is divisive.

2. Sushilkumar Shinde, Home Minister of India pushed for controversial ‘Communal Violence Bill’. Shinde wants ‘Muslim youth’ not to be detained ‘wrongfully’. It is perfectly okay if ‘Hindus’ are detained. Kapil Sibal fought for it but the bill was deferred when the government failed to convince the Opposition about its intention to bring such legislation.  BJP led the opposition to fight this flawed bill in the Rajya Sabha and saved India from UPA2’s sinister designs to appease the minority, on the eve of 2014 elections.

But Modi is divisive.

3. In a recent attempt to appease the minority voters after the odious Muzzafarnagar riots, Nehru-Gandhi Dynasty’s heir Rahul Gandhi blurted out that the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI is in contact with local Muslim youths trying to persuade them to join anti India forces after over 60 people were killed and nearly 45,000 displaced in September. 2013. This remark kicked up such a terrible storm that the entire Home Ministry was shaken to the core. Cabinet Minister and Rahul’s close aid, IITian Ramesh Jiram said Mr Gandhi should apologise to the Muslim community. The remark created a furore. Muslim leaders accused Mr Gandhi of questioning the patriotism of their community. The Election Commission had also expressed displeasure over Rahul Gandhi’s remarks and had advised him to be more circumspect in his poll speeches.

But, Modi is divisive.

4. Congress Party’s new prized entrant is Shri Nandan Nilekani, famous for his success at Infosys and as chairperson of the Unique Identification Authority of India, simply put the controversial Aadhar Card.  Nandan is contesting elections from Bangalore, on Congress ticket. In his presser he said that he wants reservations in the private sector, triggering an unparalleled vote-bank politics. Padma Bhushan Shri Nandan Nilekani was NDTV Indian of the Year. He has been in the august company of World’s top leaders/ businessman lists in Time, Forbes and many more. In India, almost every IT graduate is inspired by his life story. He is the man who strongly opposed over-regulation of the Private Sector. Within 24 hours of joining the Congress party he demanded reservations for the minority in the pivate sector. On strong opposition from almost everyone, he took a turn and said he actually meant public sector. What do waiters think of a customer who says ‘Oh, sorry. I ordered Mutton Biryani when I meant Chicken Biryani… but Biryani it is.’ 

Nandan Nilekani has indeed changed his hat. Take a look.


But, Modi is divisive.

5. Sharad Pawar, the founder leader of NCP, Union Minister is a grassroots level politician from Mahrashtra. And a heavyweight in coalition politics. He is also famous for having dubious relations with the ‘sugar lobby’. He is campaigning for reservations for the Marathas.

Surely, Modi is divisive.

6. Recently MujaffarNagar witnessed gruesome communal riots. Muzaffarnagar is ruled by Samajwadi Party whose Hindu leader Mulayam Singh Yadav is known as Maulana Mulayam. Supreme Court appointed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) monitored by SC. SIT in India enjoys utmost credibility and its decision is considered to be the final word. SIT has recently charge sheeted many leaders for instigating the riots. And all of them  belong to either BSP, SP, or Congress.  

But, Modi is divisive.

7. Maulana Mulayam Singh is contesting from two seats. One of them is Azamgarh to consolidate Muslim votes.

But, Modi is devisive.

8.  The real ballsy leader and CM of West Bengal who single-handedly toppled the left Government and sent them in extinction. She wiped out the congress from WB.  She also forced Tata’s to take away his pet Nano project out of WB. Which Modi lapped for .50p. That’s what he must have paid for a SMS message he sent to Ratan Tata and rest is history.  The same messiah of downtrodden, poor & underpriviledged, this ‘sikular’ Mamata Banerjee refuses to meet American Ambassador, Nancy Powell, to ensure that no “wrong signals” are sent out to Muslim voters.

But, Modi is divisive.

9. In India, its almost impossible not to have some Jain friends. In every book, Mahavir’s name is taken in the same breath as Buddha. If you’d ask man on the street he may not even know that Jains are not Hindus. Such is the amalgamation of these two religions.

Keeping an eye on the elections, the Congress bestows Minority status upon the Jains.

But, Modi is divisive.

10. Recently Election Commission censured Salman Khurshid for attempts to entice Muslims through sops like in government jobs.

But, Modi is divisive.

11. Recently a revolutionary emerged on Indian Political Scene. Someone still has to explain to me how can a revolution take place in a Democracy. Isn’t it already a democracy? This revolutionary entered politics in order to teach other corrupt, communal, divisive parties his style of ‘New Politics’. He showed the ‘politically ignored’ middle class a  ray of hope. This muffler-clad leader said he is neither socialist nor capitalist. Neither leftist nor rightist. He doesn’t care about religion, community, caste and creed or even RACE. When it came to his racist minister, this IITian,ex-CM of Delhi,  ‘holier-than-thou’ Arvind Kejriwal, sided with his racist minister.

But, Modi is devisive.

12. His closest comrade and prominent psepholgist, a beneficiary of Congress’s largesse to its sycophant liberals, Yogi Yadav, who spent most of his life advising Sonia Gandhi and blabbering in champagne parties of Chatarpur farms of Delhi, when in caste-ridden Haryana,  seconded, supported and justified reservations demand.  He is constantly wooing Jat and Yadav votes.

But, Modi is divisive.

13. Yogendra Yadav is very aggressively chasing Muslim votes. He realises that Congress is falling apart. Where will Muslim vote go? To SP or BSP? There isn’t much time. So to create fear amongst Muslim community he warned Muslims that if Modi comes to power, India will have to go through one more partition.

Why would India go through partition if the majority elects Modi as their Prime Minister? Doesn’t it go to show that he has no faith in democracy and the mandate of India’s people? Is that his plan? To divide India if Modi comes to power? Or is he doing it to create fear?

But, Modi is divisive.

14. Senior Advocate Prashant Bhushan, again an AAP member and closest comrade of Kejriwal openly demands refrendum in Kashmir and in Naxal areas and Kejriwal passes them as his personal remarks and not a political stand. It’s like Rajnath Singh saying he doesn’t believe in development and wants communal agenda and Modi dismissing them as Singh’s personal views. Is this a child’s game?

But, according to AAP, Modi is divisive.

15. AAP calls Batla House fake and Saint Topival writes to the ‘Muslim brothers’, asking them to vote for AAP.

But, Modi is divisive.

16. Captain Marvel of Indian politics Arvind Kejriwal is attending Muslim Groups hangouts wearing skull cap. Imagine if Modi were to attend a Hindu Sabha. Or even RSS sabha.?

Kejriwal keeps asking about how many Muslims have been given tickets by BJP? Is this how IITians are groomed to be responsible, secular leaders? For last two days, in Varansi,  he is meeting Muslim groups because that is his potential vote-bank.  Nothing wrong with that. But he told us to warn him if he ever plays vote-bank politics. And if true, he will leave the politics, forever. But he is not listening.


What kind of political leader is he who takes off his own party’s official cap, which represents secularism and doesn’t belong to any belief-group, and replaces it with a Muslim skull cap. Just to appease them.

But, Modi is divisive.

17. Some prominent journalists like Rajdeep Sardesai, Sagarika Ghosh and Barkha Dutt and the ilk have run sinister campaigns against labelling Modi as polarising leader but they leave no opportunity to question Hindu sentiments and supporting minorities unreasonable demands . Covertly on their channels and overtly on social media. Sagarika Ghosh has coined a term on Social Media ‘Internet Hindoos’.

But, Modi is devisive.

18. Another reason why Modi is divisive because he has changed the political discourse from communal/secular debate to unity, development and governance. He has  changed the agenda. He has shifted it from communal debate to developmental agenda.

But, Modi is devisive.

19. Slowly, but steadily, parties, leaders, work-groups, thought groups and competent people have started coming under the fold of NDA. There is a sense of Unity and Hope. People are getting united in expressing their aspirations by supporting Modi. When was the last time we saw Varansi and Vadodra celebrating together only on the announcement of a MP’s candidature?  In this case it’s Narendra Modi.

But, Modi is devisive.

20. If Modi wins, this would be the first time in Indian electoral history that a Prime Minister would have won without playing caste, religion or community card. If Modi wins, he would have won on the promise of Unity and Development.

See, I told you Modi is divisive.
