BJP’s love for Kalam and Indian Muslims

Jaipur: The second death anniversary of former President of India and scientist APJ Abdul Kalam was commemorated by Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) across India. However, in Rajasthan, the party leaders invited Muslim students, to mark the occasion at the BJP party office in Jaipur. They not only paid floral tribute to Dr Kalam, but also gave away freebies. Significantly, most children were sporting the skull cap, an object identical with the Muslim identity. Political observers maintain that BJP looks for Muslims sporting beard and skull cap or women wearing burqa when it comes to showing Muslim presence in their events. Social scientists say that practicing Muslims do not fit into idea of good Muslims for most BJP leaders.
