Is Modi Making India Go Pakistan’s Way
The BJP has put its most respected leader, Atal Behari Vajpayee, in polemics by unwittingly equating him with Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the man responsible for the division of India and creation of Pakistan.
Late Jinnah shares his birthday with Mr Vajpayee, both born on Christmas Day.
So, December 25 is a holiday in Pakistan in memory of Jinnah and not on account of Christmas.
This was possibly on the mind of Education Minister Smriti Irani when she declared that December 25 would be observed as Good Governance Day in India.
When the BJP is not aping China, it lifts examples from Pakistan! Not the least surprising from a party whose only original thinking comes from making Nathuram Godse, the man who killed Mahatma Gandhi, a hero.
Looks like the BJP is doing all it can to bring discredit to Mr Vajpayee so self-centred Mr Narendra Modi can reap whatever laurels he can gain!
Inanity, not innovation, and low-calibre leaders are what the BJP is unleashing on India! What a pity!
