Narendra Modi and Cardinal George Alencherry during a function to celebrate the elevation to sainthood of Kuriakose Elias Chavara and Mother Euphrasia in New Delhi on Tuesday (Source: PTI Photo) Related News The prime minister’s emphatic reminder at the celebration of two Christian saints that no one should be targeted for being who they are should allay fears that the normative standards of Indian politics have turned rightwards The public articulation of norms is not everything They have to be expressed in institutional action In a polity tempted to argue for the sake of arguing it is always possible to decode this or that ambiguity And it is easy to speculate on the motives behind the speech: the Delhi defeat the Obama effect the parliamentary imperative But the speech was a powerful expression of the idea that the normative self image of Indian democracy cannot be pushed around beyond a point At one level it was in a nicely clichéd way the quintessential Indian secularism moment: the canonisation of Christian saints being celebrated in a sarkari building called Vigyan Bhawan by a prime minister whose ideological pedigree many still find ambiguous In some ways as Ashis Nandy pointed out many years ago the triumph of secularism in India is more about the ability to live with contradiction ambiguity and messy accommodation than the triumph of first principles This is the quality that allows the feedback loops of a democracy to recoil after conflict It also makes it hard for those who think in rigid ideological or social categories to understand how quickly politics moves The speech did not equivocate with “ifs and buts” Many of Narendra Modi’s supporters and apparently even Delhi Police had taken the lawyerly approach to attacks on churches in Delhi — these were just robberies endemic to religious institutions at large While this may be true in some cases it did not fit the whole story The pattern placed in a larger context of ideological baiting was enough to cause unease Some of Modi’s core supporters are miffed that the prime minister sought to assuage these anxieties rather than argue his way out of them In this sense the speech was significant The speech acknowledged that in the final analysis India’s strength would rest on the power of its example as a free and pluralistic society If that goes not only will social conflicts become unmanageable but any pretensions to great-power status will always labour under debilitating shadows India will have to act in ways more consistent with its identity and its aspirations to craft a unique and morally ambitious constitutional culture But this realisation needs to be extended in deeper and subtler ways The government’s stance in the case of Greenpeace activist Priya Pillai is disconcerting The reputation that India prevented an activist from speaking and travelling no matter how misguided that activist might be will damage it both internally and externally Just as there cannot be any equivocation on toleration there cannot be any equivocation on rights The government’s law machinery is frankly an embarrassment on this issue Making travel contingent on someone’s views displays legal ignorance of the highest order One institutional story waiting to be written is on the decimation of the office of the attorney general under successive governments Instead of defending high constitutional values they have often acted like henchmen for the government’s perfidies If officials genuinely want to support the prime minister they would be better off pointing out what will embarrass the government rather than fighting every low fight on its behalf The third encouraging thing about Modi’s speech was that he does respond to criticism Contrary to what most of his defenders think most Indians want the prime minister to succeed Is there any Indian in their right mind who wishes another five years of a government that does not do justice to India’s potential India has delayed fulfilling its potential far too long The purpose of criticism is not to pull down it is to goad the government into the right kind of action Modi is saddled with a supporting cast whose politics of resentment and zealotry can derail his political prospects The task of outmanoeuvring it will require artful politics There are three different contingents in this story There is a large group of MPs particularly from UP whose politics is a throwback to the Ram Janmabhoomi days They have ridden a Modi wave without being softened by the rough and tumble of politics The interesting question is whether they can be socialised in the same trajectory as the early leaders of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement — those we think of as the respectable faces of the BJP now were yesterday’s zealots The second contingent is the RSS It is a lot less monolithic than it used to be And it is marked by two kinds of tensions One is potentially a generational conflict and cultural churning within the RSS A lot of the new recruits to it have wider social and economic ambitions that make commitment to an old-fashioned narrow view of the world more complicated This is reflected in the debate over Section 377 an item that should be central to any toleration agenda The second conflict is over political realities No party can win if it panders only to its base — and the secure non-transferable base of each party is probably also smaller In local contexts polarisation may work at the margins But we live in a politics where it is hard to control context A local polarisation may produce adverse national political consequences The RSS cannot remain immune to these realities The third contingent is ordinary BJP politicians who are not zealots but who equivocate depending on where the wind is blowing The disquieting aspect of the embarrassment the BJP suffered during the last Parliament session was not the RSS getting assertive That was expected The big fear in some sections of the RSS is that the price of Modi’s success may be its greater irrelevance It was more that otherwise sensible ministers had started wading into the choppy waters of declaring religious texts as national texts and so forth In short Modi has marginalised so many politicians in his party that they will covertly scour for opportunities to try and make themselves relevant Handling these three groups will be a long haul But if the prime minister’s speech is a good start he now needs to attend to the other challenge that has eluded his grasp so far: how to build a state that can make him more than a string of speeches Modi’s speech seemed to be saying to his supporters: instead of expending your energies on debilitating battles find ways of

Published: October 27 2014 2:08 am Comprising 106 per cent of the state’s population Muslims have never had more than 12 MLAs Related News Many seemingly contradictory conclusions have emerged from the recent assembly polls Self-styled spokesmen of the Muslim community may have railed against the Congress’s continuous treatment of their community as a captive vote bank Yet according to the Lokniti-CSDS poll published in The Indian Express (‘Behind BJP Upper Castes OBCs and Rich’ October 21) 53 per cent of Muslims voted for the party If the figures are to be believed these “spokesmen” need to get in touch with their own community at the grassroots Again notwithstanding the continuing arrests of Muslims on terror charges under the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP)-controlled state home ministry Sharad Pawar’s party got the second highest percentage of the Muslim vote: 16 per cent Five candidates from the Congress and one from the NCP got elected What explains this continuing trust among almost 70 per cent of Maharashtra’s Muslims in the two parties that have ruled them for 15 years but done little for them Could it be the enduring legacy of Jawaharlal Nehru seen as the architect of our secularism Or of Indira Gandhi still remembered by elderly Muslims as a friend of the poor thanks to her rural welfare schemes Could it be the fear of the Sena-BJP which the “secular” parties especially the oldest of them the Congress have always invoked to keep Muslims under their wing For the average Muslim in Maharashtra Narendra Modi invokes the same fear and loathing that former Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray did This fear was played up to the hilt during the Lok Sabha campaign again by self-styled Muslim “leaders” (with generous Congress backing) who were alarmed at the way their youth was deserting its “secular protectors” and turning to Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party in droves But six months later many of the same “leaders” were rooting for Modi and Uddhav Thackeray to “teach the Congress-NCP a lesson that they can’t take us for granted” For the first time the BJP won 13 per cent of the Muslim vote even more than the Shiv Sena’s 11 per cent Even the strident “love jihad” and “Hindutva-is-India’s-identity” campaign by the BJP/ RSS in the four months of Modi’s rule at the Centre didn’t drive Maharashtra’s Muslims away completely Why did one-fourth of them vote for the saffron parties The Congress is primarily responsible It has ruled the state since its formation in 1960 except for twobrief intervals Recurring communalriots benevolence towards both Hindu rioters and the partisan police and arrests torture and prolonged imprisonment without trial of young Muslimsfor alleged acts of terror have left the community seething Indifference ofand discrimination by the state especiallythe bureaucracy have led to 59 percent of them living below the povertyline in ghettos lagging behind in education and employment — findingsof the Mehmood-ur-Rehman Committee set up in 2008 to study the community’s condition But these concerns have rarelybeen voiced either in the assembly or outside by the community’s leaders Comprising 106 per cent of the state’s population Muslims have never had more than 12 MLAs representing them out of a total of 288 Nominated as Muslims elected by Muslims and made ministers only for being Muslim these representatives have betrayed their community to stick to power by remaining silent on the community’s problems — this is the bitter complaint Part of the reason for this betrayal lies in the kind of Muslims who are given tickets by the Congress First theparty despite its much-touted commitment to secularism does not nominate Muslims from Hindu-dominated areas arguing that they won’t win (thereby assuming that voters are communal) This can be countered by throwing the party’s weight behind the Muslim candidate But actually working for secularism has never been thought worthwhileby the Congress Second despite the presence in the party of educated broad-minded Muslims who can work with all communities successive chief ministers have deliberately given tickets to mostly uneducated and conservative Muslims who prefer the company of their own kind especially maulanas The Congress’s thinking is that these are the kind of Muslims the community would vote for Once elected these worthies have neither the intellectual capacity nor the will to raise the community’s genuine issues let alone work for them Despite knowing all this Muslim intellectuals joined the majority of their community in Maharashtra to vote for the Congress-NCP in the Lok Sabha elections hoping this would keep Modi out But Modi’s triumph and the decimation of their parties brought home a bitter reality — for the first time their votes didn’t matter This feeling of abandonment indeed of disenfranchisement (voiced openly as a goal by some BJP and RSS members — remember the threat “Those who don’t vote Modi can go to Pakistan” by a BJP candidate from Bihar who won) alienated the community as never before What happened next was sad — they accepted the harsh reality that a party could come to power without their votes but instead of finding fault with the party for ignoring the country’s biggest minority sections of politically active Muslims started blaming themselves for falling into the trap of the Congress’s vote-bank politics which had kept them aloof from the “mainstream” This alienation was intensified by the strident anti-Muslim rhetoric of Modi’s supporters after he came to power particularly during the Uttar Pradesh by-election campaign But the BJP’s defeat in the UP bypolls and the party’s subsequent dissociation from the venomous campaign provided sections of the community’s leaders a straw they could clutch at Then both the longstanding alliances in Maharashtra broke leaving every party and every candidate chasing every vote — even that of the “anti-national” Muslim The result: a mention of Wakf land in the BJP manifesto (significantly not in the Sena’s) and Muslims campaigning for both saffron parties But this alienation and frustration also led to another outcome — the successful debut of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) in assembly elections outside its Hyderabad base Its two victories and creditable performance in nine other constituencies of the 24 it contested are courtesy the emotional and religious exploitation of the community’s feeling of helplessness by the Owaisi brothers Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi and Telengana MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi projected themselves as saviours of the threatened Muslim identity the way Bal Thackeray used to for Hindus While mostly unemployed and uneducated youngsters thronged their rallies an alarming number of discerning and older Muslims saw nothing seriously wrong with their religious rhetoric Indeed their impassioned description of the wrongs done to Muslims gave them the halo of fearless champions of a cause no politician dared speak up for But there is a considerable number of Muslim intellectuals who despair at the isolation their community could be headed for if they followed the AIMIM’s polarising politics They just need to remember that the Samajwadi Party which encashed Muslim anger in the same manner after the 1992-93 Mumbai riots was wiped out in the state within a decade and is today left with only one seat — that of its chief Abu Asim Azmi Second Muslims form 106 per cent of the electorate Only 09 per cent voted for the Owaisis The community
