Lucknow: The head of the Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav, asked on Monday whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Indonesia and Malaysia during the month of Ramzan was an attempt at “international appeasement” by the minority community.
During an interview with the PTI news agency, he stated that people not only from Uttar Pradesh, but from across the country were upset with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), in addition to making promises that “they did nothing else.”
Quoting a proverb, Akhilesh Yadav said: “On an empty stomach, people have now understood that BJP does not mean business.”
Calling on the BJP to prevent its leaders from making “absurd” comments, he said, “the BJP should learn to face the defeats or they will not be able to digest the outcome of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in which the opposition will hold a Vuelve. ”
Beating the BJP for accusing his party of practicing appeasement of minorities, the head of the Samajwadi party said: “Prime Minister Yogi Adityanath says he does not celebrate Eid because he is Hindu, and the BJP accuses us of practicing Muslim appeasement. just visited Indonesia and Malaysia during the month of Ramzan, is it an attempt at “international appeasement” of the Muslims?
Supposedly, Adityanath had said that he was Hindu and did not celebrate Eid, receiving strong criticism from the opposition.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was for the first time on an official visit to Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority nation in the world, last month. He has visited Singapore twice and Malaysia once in 2015.
Modi also visited the great Istiqlal mosque in Indonesia, the largest in Southeast Asia, with President Joko Widodo.
Indonesia is not only the most populous Muslim country in the world, followed by India, but the third largest democracy. Hindus constitute 2% of the population of Indonesia and form a majority close to 90% on the island of Bali.
