West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today asked the people of the state not to support the BJP, alleging that the saffron outfit “divides people in the name of religion.” “We do not believe in the BJP’s Hindutva which divides people. They are not Hindus. They defame Hinduism. They create communal tension in the name of religion,” she said at a public meeting here. “I am a Hindu. I love and respect all religions. We will not tolerate communal flare-up in the name of religion,” she said.

The chief minister was apparently responding to the BJP’s accusation yesterday that her government was preventing Hindus from observing religious festivals like Ram Navami and pursuing politics of minority appeasement. BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya had stated that the party would oust the TMC government through people’s movement if the latter continued with its minority appeasement policy.

    Mamta said "I am a Hindu. I love and respect all religions.". Here what does it mean by 'all religions'. Does it called a religion if that doesn't give respect to other than own? Some religions doesn't give respect to other than own. So, they are not eligible for coming under any religion. Then why Mamta is giving respect to those ?

          We have been told to accept that to talk anti Hindu is sickularism and so nothing new. Problem is that socialism, secularism and chasing away industry do not cut any ice now. For communities to rise we need job creation, infra structure and industry.
