Islamic empathizer Amnesty India calls on K’taka govt, asks to allow cow slaughtering

The anti -Hindu Human Right Organisation, Amnesty International India’, which is facing heat from the Central agencies over allegations of FCRA violation, now has asked Karnataka’s Congress govt to take action against its anti Hindu demands to uphold “human rights”.

Taking a social media site, the Islamic empathizer organisation, Amnesty said, “The incoming state government must prioritize and uphold human rights for all in the state. We call on @INCKarnataka to take three priority actions for human rights. “

In its first demand, Amnesty India asked to revoke the ban on women wearing hijab in educational institutes. As per the organisation, the ban forces Muslim girls to choose between their rights to freedom of expression and religion and their right to education, hindering their ability to meaningfully participate in society.

It should be reminded that following the Hijab controversy which was started in early 2022 in the state, the BJP government had banned Hijab in the educational institute. However, the court upheld the government’s decision to ban hijab in classrooms.2

In a next tweet, the organisation has asked govt to revoke the Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Act, 2020 and the Karnataka Protection of Right to Freedom of Religion Bill, 2022 and allow cow slaughtering in the state. It claimed that a ban on slaughter and religious conversions can be “misused and weaponised against minorities”.

In its last tweet, it demanded action against the Hindus who call for an economic boycott and violence against Muslim people. It has asked the congress govt, to ensure accountability for such advocacy of hatred and end hate crimes that are motivated by religious and caste-based discrimination.

Karnataka Elections and BJP

Vote share of BJP & Congress in the Vidhan Sabha elections since 2003.

Many on the so-called right are saying BJP lost Hindu vote because of Pasmanda, Maulana Modi etc. Is it true? Fact is Karnataka, especially rural Karnataka has a fixed Congress vote because of caste equations in the state. BJP has NEVER won more votes in Karnataka state elections than Congress. NEVER. So this election was always going to be tough. We all know their local performance and messaging strategy did not do as well. Congress OTOH had a clear attack strategy. They had pulled Muslim vote away from JDS using blatant communal pandering. Their calculation was it would not polarise Hindu votes beyond the 36% BJP achieved in 2018. Caste equations would hold. It worked. In 2018, 5 INC and 2 JDS Muslim candidates had won, this time 9 INC Muslim candidates won, but none from JDS. In the end Caste & Islam was a stronger factor than Hindutva. Hindutva failed to destroy caste in Karnataka. Funny thing is most who keep calling Maulana Modi are blatantly casteist themselves. Make this make sense.

Taking Hindutva to the less sophisticated is BJP’s job. And Modi is the leader. So I’m not giving a free pass to anyone and blaming the people. It’s exact opposite.
