    NEW DELHI: The head of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Hindu nationalist party took his invective against illegal Muslim immigrants to a new level this week as the general election kicked off, promising to throw them into the Bay of Bengal.

    Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah referred to such illegal immigrants as “termites”, a description he also used last September, when he drew condemnation from rights groups. The US State Department also noted the remark in its annual human rights report.

    “Infiltrators are like termites in the soil of Bengal,” Shah said on Thursday at a rally in West Bengal, as voting in India’s 39-day general election started.

    “A Bharatiya Janata Party government will pick up infiltrators one by one and throw them into the Bay of Bengal,” he said, referring to illegal immigrants from neighbouring Muslim-majority Bangladesh.

    Shah nevertheless reiterated the BJP’s stance on giving citizenship to Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs from Bangladesh and Pakistan.

    India is already working on deporting an estimated 40,000 Rohingya Muslims living in the country after fleeing Buddhist-majority Myanmar. New Delhi considers them a security threat.

    The comments from Shah, the right-hand man of Modi, drew criticism from the main opposition Congress party as well as minority groups. On Twitter, some users likened his speech to a suggestion of ethnic cleansing.

    “The statement is a direct attack on the identity and integrity of the nation as a secular state,” the Kerala Christian Forum, a group from the southern state, said in a statement. It demanded an apology from Shah.

    A BJP spokesman declined to comment on the speech.

    Congress spokesman Sanjay Jha said Shah’s remarks were a deliberate attempt to polarise voters along sectarian lines.

    “The political business model of the BJP is to raise the communal temperature, keep it at a boil, and to keep India in a permanent religious divide,” Jha said.

    Barking dogs seldom bites. These are all election stunt. As these dogs lost faces in economic mismanagement and pulwama incidence, only card left for them to use is flaring up Hindu communalism to grab the votes of gullible Hindus.

    What a cheap shot for electioneering.

    But with the same token, it is a somber occasion for all Muslims in India. This is what these morons think about you, less than human. Your life is worth nothing for them.
    He is blatantly showing the true face of India, hatred for the Muslims. Where is the candy of "Secularism" given to you for 70 years!! He is not saying that he would throw all immigrants in to the bay, just the Muslims immigrants.

    It is time to start a movement like "Kashmir Liberation" for the liberation of all Muslims in India.

    It is not going to get any better. It would get only worse with the passage of time.
    Next it would be massacres of Muslims in India. Are you going to sit idle waiting for those days to arrive!!
    Stand up and be counted.

    But why does this work?
    In Pakistan, no party can win elections by fanning bigotry. It means that this sentiment is popular among Indian masses, the politicians just exploit.

    This is because although Hindus are majority in India, they have all the insecurities and fears of an embattled minority. They think, they are under attack from the Muslims of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Bigoted BJP is just capitalizing on this fear and insecurity. This is mostly an inferiority complex issue.

    But I'm afraid that it is not just the election rhetoric, they will implement it if they gain simple majority. They couldn't do many things because congress was in majority in their senate. But now, it will change.

    Good analysis. Fear of Muslims is deep seated in their psyche. It is not good for this region. Though, I don't know, how can they get rid of it.

    Yes, if it is possible by an act of the parliament, because they would not be in a position to amend the constitution. After, this election, apparently seats of NDA are going to be reduced in Lok Sabha.
