Let me share with you my personal opinion. Before I dwell into details allow me to give you a brief background about me. I lived first 18 years of my life in Delhi in a middle class locality completely dominated by Hindus (espcially most people's parents/grandparents were migrants from Pakistan) Obviously the talks, sharings had a strong influence on me and imbibed a hate feeling against Muslims. Until I moved to Bangalore where I had the very first contact with Muslim/Muslim community, it was a difficult moment for me and I really had discomfort dealing but as the time progressed and I came to know them well, I started to think, why the hell I dislike them, they are just like me. The point of making on this post is if we want to keep the agenda on building a Ram temple in Ayodhya, keep the target date 500 years from now why?
Because we have to win over Muslims and not by force (it cannot happen for next 10, 20 or 50 years)
BJP is considered as communal
Congress had much larger edge over BJP is only because of Secularism (though they are not to anyone for the matter of fact)
How did BJP developed that image (over the period of time) Past is Past, let me focus on current and future :
I am sure BJP would have done lots of analysis why they lost the recent general election. The whole focus of BJP during the election campaign was Sonia Gandhi & Manmohan Singh. BJP gave free publicity and to spice it up Media too helped
BJP should work on to change the status of party not only domestic it should be recognized internationally too which will help them dealing with foreign policy when come to power. How?
PROTECT ALL CITIZENS (no matter which religion) in all BJP ruling states no matter what happens, if there is a communal riots, or bombing against Hindus, Make sure who did it gets killed (if BJP thinks Judiaciary proceedings takes time) not the overall community or minority who has nothing to do with. Godhra incident was big blunder from Modi Govt, may be he won Gujrath Election but it had a nationwide implication. Speech by Rahul Gandhi should be condemned publicly and if he has really done, he shouldn't have given the MP ticket.
Just because Hindus comprises 85% of total population does not mean we have more rights, we sill have Equal rights only.
Give more MP/MLA tickets to Muslims, and again do not talk about sensitive subjects un neccesarily provoking any community after all every one has sentiments.
We have huge respect Globally that is because we are fair with all and since Congress ruled majority of years they take the credit and make this as a big shield to fight against BJP.
Right now our focus should be Developing the Nation to greater heights, overtake China and become the largest economy in the World,
I like the Offer from BJP President but if you dig more we only collect more dirt. Right now focus on development, make sure all Citizens of India is benefitted. Offer will be accepted only when BJP shows the real secularism and development to minority community.
Think about it....
