The BJP since its founding in 1980 has undergone massive transformation and has come to power in 2014 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Today the BJP is the country’s most formidable political force with unparalleled influence and power as it is seen in the current scenario of the country.
As rightly stated, BJP is a right-wing party, and its policy has historically reflected Hindu nationalist positions. It has close ideological and organisational links to the much older Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and has in fact worked together in promoting and encouraging the hideous ideology of Hindu supremacy.
While in the country the BJP is widely accused of fascism, in Uttar Pradesh, and especially in Hathras, under the leadership of BJP Yogi, the people are being taken back to a hundred years ago when the world had no taste of the modern day and what it offers. People couldn’t travel a hundred years ago as there were no proper roads and vehicles but Hathras is unfortunately in the same situation today as the people are forcefully being confined in their homes.
In fact, what we face today is much worse and outrageous. The government has utterly abused the force and power in their hands. It has gruesomely controlled everything that it can or everything that there is, because there is not much that is not politically controlled, except of course for the few people that remain loyal to the country and their positions. Unsurprisingly, we have the #godimedia and the police forces that take commands from the “higher-ups”. The bureaucracy too isn’t entirely spared as they can be transferred from posts to posts in a big country like India. The legislators are indeed the hands of the ideologies.
Unfortunately, the power vested upon them has now been used to lay burdens on the people to the extent of threatening their lives and their entire existence. Imagine people are not allowed to speak or stand up for their rights and are forcefully silenced and chained.  Therefore, what we face today is utter violations of Human Rights, it’s not merely suppression and oppression but a more serious threat to the entire humankind which most of us fail to realise.
Indeed there is a growing need to fight against these modern imperialism and autocracy. When people are being threatened not to speak to save their lives, one doesn’t need to assume the reality that we are now facing. The reality is an absolute madness that blinds the government to see the truth of what the people and the country needs but to see only power and force to subjugate and willingly rule over people.
What happens today is mentally distressing, emotionally devastating, and politically outrageous. The people therefore need to collectively stand together and fight for the oppressed. It doesn’t matter if one is a dalit, a woman, a tribal, or an upper caste. Today it’s dalit and woman, but someday it will be you and me too. We need to raise our voices for the voiceless.
For those forcefully being confined, we must raise our voices today. For the parents who aren’t even allowed to perform the last rite of their lovely daughter and bid their last farewell we must demand justice. For every daughter who is being threatened not to have their freedom we must educate our society. For those being manipulated and used by ideologies of the heathens we must pray for wisdom. This must be a collective fight!
The Youth must stand together today, in fact every right thinking person must stand together as human beings with a goal for common good, and peace and harmony for the society. We demand #Yogimustresign, and the reign of BJP that has outrightly rejected the values of the constitution and the ideals of the making of the country must end!
Today we call out to everyone to come and stand with us and fight this fight for humanity. It doesn’t matter if it is a BJP or a Congress, the truth is where we must find our answer. The welfare of the people is what must concern. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are from, and what you do, we must all stand for the one TRUTH –Justice and peace for all.
