Modi’s Divisive Rhetoric Backfires as Veteran Politicians Champion Muslim Reservations

As the 2024 Indian general election approaches, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s relentless attacks on the Congress party for favoring Muslims have lost their potency. Instead of galvanizing support, this strategy has now become counterproductive for the BJP.

According to an article published on Saturday by Muslim Mirror, prominent politicians, including Chief Ministers Jagan Mohan Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu, have voiced support for 4% Muslim reservations, defying Modi’s opposition to extending quotas beyond Dalits, Adivasis, and OBCs.

Veteran leaders like Lalu Prasad Yadav and Sharad Pawar have also condemned Modi’s communal rhetoric and advocated for greater representation of Muslims.

The political landscape has shifted, with voters more concerned about issues like inflation and unemployment than divisive communal politics.

Modi’s latest provocative statements appear to have backfired, generating sympathy for the cause of Muslim reservations across the political spectrum.
