While watching NDTV’s Walk and Talk programe’s Shekhar Gupta interviewing BJP’s newly proposed prime ministerial candidate, if and when BJP or NDA coalition is able to form next, or next to next central government, the hypocrisy of Advani’s own thought processes cannot be ignored, when he is trying to see that Pakistan, under President Musharraf, could and should become a secular state, given Musharraf’s early years spent in Turkey, the seat of Muslim Caliphate, that was very forcefully transformed into a non-religious and secular state by Mustafa Kamal Pasha and was the role model for President Musharraf, at least clearly mentioned by Musharraf on his inaugural speech, when he assumed power in Pakistan.

While Advani was on to secularize Pakistan through the medium of an unelected and army backed dictator, he never attempts to repudiate the fundamental fascist Hindutva ideology of BJP and Sangh Parivar, while projecting Ram Rajya, as their ideal for a multicultural, multi-religious pluralist country like his own country,India.

In fact, at this point of time, BJP’s RSS plank is fundamentally opposed to the very basics of Indian constitution and as such this political party cannot be allowed to participate in the elections.

A Supreme Court judgement, accepting Hindutva or Hindu plank as cultural rather than any religious identity, has given BJP the temporary opportunity to win elections on the basis on fomenting inter-religious strife and anti-Muslim hate propaganda.

That Supreme Court judgement was never contested. It is certainly open for review at Supreme Court, with a larger bench, in the light of more factual data that is now available, as to the true ideological and factual nature of BJP’s unconstitutional identity.

Each and every statement of the leadership of BJP, RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal form the data that is available for the Supreme Court to review and decide, if the Sangh Parivar confirms to the constitution of India and if should be allowed to take part in Indian elections.
