Hate Modi, Hate BJP but Come out of "Defeat BJP Syndrome" says Sherwani

Dear all !
The main problem with intellectuals is that they deviate from the crux of the discussion. When I appeal to Muslims to come out of the “ Defeat B.J.P. syndrome’, it never implies that ‘ VOTE FOR B.J.P.' Personally I hate Narendra Modi and B.J.P., but now have more intense hate for these fictitious secular parties . I agree with the statement of Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, issued some time back that for Muslims , no party is untouchable. I also agree with the statement of Maulana Arshad Madni of Jamaitul-Ulmae Hind that how long the Congress will frighten Muslims in the name of B.J.P. or Modi. It is only the result of this Muslim mindset that Saifai of Mulayam Singh is dancing and in the same state the horrors of Muzaffarnagar riot victims is no secret from anybody. On our dead bodies the calculations of political advantages and disadvantages are made.
In the context of the emergence of AAP on national horizon, let me say that I am its great admirer only in the sense that it has introduced some figment of morality and honesty in an otherwise deeply corrupt system. But I appreciate the political shrewdness of Mr. Arvind Kejriwal that he has touched this nerve of the Muslim community by projecting his party as the greatest enemy of B.J.P. Anyhow , on the eve of election, outfits and people like Jamate-Islami who are appealing for the community’s en masse support to AAP will be betraying it by issuing appeals in the name of strategic voting to vote for the candidates of different political parties who are in a position to defeat B.J.P.

I ask the following questions to those who are obsessed only with ‘ Defeat B.J.P’ and think of nothing else.

1. Can they ever have the power to compel all these hypocritical secular parties who elicit Muslim vote on the drama of defeating B.J.P. from their respective platforms, to field one joint candidate against B.J.P.. If they do so, the B.J.P. will be eliminated.
2. What they have done so far and what they will do in future if those parties or individuals whom Muslims voted or will vote in the name of defeating B.J.P., aligned with it ( B.J.P.)
3. Can anybody set time limit as how long this buffoonery of sacrificing everything in the name of ‘Defeating B.J.P.’ will continue.

I want a healthy discussion on these points because now enough is enough, but please stick to the logic as I hate the illogical and foolish arguments, be it from Muslims or Hindus, be it from my supporters or critics..
