(Organiser, 27.10.2013); The recent communal riots in Muzaffarnagar and in other parts of Uttar Pradesh within one and a half years of Sawajwadi Party assuming office, throwing the State in to communal cauldron, shows the discriminatory politics on communal lines. Vote-bank politics is responsible for the huge loss of life and property along with the consequence of further widening the cleavages between the two communities. Even after India getting Partitioned on religious grounds, the present politics of vote-bank may likely to result in separatism with greater demands along with further radicalisation. Such political parties still boast of being secular and never get tired discussing about 2002 Gujarat riots, blaming BJP and RSS for it. Where these UP riots not directly or indirectly sponsored by the rulers of the State due to their biased politics. Notably, the criminal culture of dragging the girls, eloping and molesting them on grounds of religion that spark the communal flare-up seem to be well planned strategy or some type of jihad to destabilise India needs to be analysed. Now one can define secularism as the politics of vote-bank persecuting some and appeasing the other resulting in butchering nationalism, but still secular.
