Muslims in Uttar Pradesh have to wait & see, Omar Abdullah only partially right when he says 18% of population of UP must be terrified

Omar Abdullah's saying that 18% (or there about) of the population of India's most populous state must be terrified of what the future has in store for them, is a bit premature as what the future has in store for those 18 per cent people still needs to seen.

Omar Abdullah’s saying that 18% (or there about) of the population of India’s most populous state must be terrified of what the future has in store for them, is a bit premature as what the future has in store for those 18 per cent people still needs to seen. It is obvious that the appointment of Hindutva mascot, Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh who has been known for his polarizing and malignant statements is making minorities insecure, but he may do things differently after becoming the chief minister.There are many instances that have proved that people have made a big u-turn on the election rhetorics after they were appointed to public offices.

What may be worrisome for the minority community may be the fact that he is committed to the installation of the Hindu Rashtra but they have to wait and see. What is also truism is that in the past, he has stirred many controversies but governing a state is a different ball game to making irresponsible statements. It is true that in 2015, Yogi Adityanath said that those who oppose yoga can leave India. He was also embroiled in the Love Jihad and Kairana exodus controversies.

Also Watch:

He also once compared Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan to terrorist leader Hafiz Saeed and asked him to go to Pakistan. And on another occasion he is known to have spoken against the minorities: There have been 450 riots cases in West UP in two-and-a-half years of Samajwadi Party rule because the population of a particular community is rising manifold. He had said that in places where there are 10-20% minority population, stray communal incidents take place. Where there are 20-35% of them, serious communal riots take place and where they are more than 35%, there is no place for non-Muslims.

He is also known to have spoken against Mother Teresa by saying that she was a part of a conspiracy to Christianise India. No doubt, his hate speeches reflect his attitude towards other communities and it is obvious that those communities will be insecure until proved otherwise. Omar Abdullah’s statement is in order but what we still don’t know what is in store for the Muslims in Uttar Pradesh.

    Omar Abdulla, why do not you speak about terror in J&K where Kashmiri Pandits are a thing of past. Shame on your hypocrisy. Remember all the communities are safe where there is a Hindu majority. People like you are the trouble makers in the name of religion.

    Yes I fully agree. Moreover what his father was uttering about POK. These people are not fit to live in India.

    All the liberals (in india and abroad) - have only one Agenda.... How to destroy Hindu Civilization (which has been the crucible of Human Civilization)....This is the only culture where Sikhs, Jains, Muslims (Shia and Sunni), Buddhists, Jews, Zoorastrians, Christians - can live in harmony. Why are these western liberals even daring to speak, when they do not even want to allow Hijab clad women in their countries ?
