Rakesh Tikait was seen raising the Islamic “Allah-u-Akbar” slogan in the so-called farmers’ mahapanchayat supposedly to promote communal harmony among Hindus and Muslims.
An OpIndia report on the matter says:
“‘Farmer leader’ Rakesh Tikait was spotted raising the slogan ‘Allahu Akbar’ during his speech at the ‘Mahapanchayat’ in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. He claimed that such slogans were raised during the time of his father. He raised slogans of ‘Har Har Mahadev’ as well….Tikait said that such slogans will continue to be raised and that ‘they’ will seek to divide them but anti-farm law leaders will seek to unite. He also claimed that their protesters did not go to the Red Fort but at the same time, asserted that they were misled into going there.”
However, Twitterattis weren’t buying Tikait’s ‘promoting communal harmony’ excuse as many of them reacted sharply to the raising of religious slogans in a so-called farmers event.
Others pointed out how it was ironic that a so-called Jat leader was today chanting the same ‘Allah-u-Akbar’ (Allah is the greatest) slogan which Islamists and Muslim armies have historically used as a war cry while fighting with Hindu Jat warriors like Gokul Jat, Rajaram and Maharaj Surajmal, or while attacking the 2 Jat brothers who laid down their lives to defend their sister’s honor – the trigger for the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots.
Not to be left behind, BJP MP Varun Gandhi wanted the government to ‘engage’ with the farmers, leading to another round of puzzlement among BJP supporters as to why this man and his mother Maneka, who have an obvious soft corner towards their estranged Nehru-Gandhi clan, are given tickets by BJP.
There are ample reasons to believe that there is a sinister agenda brewing behind the smokescreen of ‘farmer protests’. A two-minute clip by a news channel confirms ours doubts that Islamists have colluded with other anti-national elements to push their agenda using the farm laws as an excuse.
All of the respondents in the clip above are Muslim. They state that they have assembled in the mahapanchayat (gathering) to protest against the three ‘black laws’. When questioned about the laws, they respond that they will keep protesting till “NRC, NPR, & CAA laws aren’t rolled back by the government”. An uninformed person would’ve thought that he is at Shaheen Bagh (where anti-CAA protests took place) rather than a ‘farmers mahapanchayat’. It wasn’t a case of one person being misinformed because everyone the anchor spoke to gave the same reply.
Involvement of Khalistanis, anti-social elements, and anti-national elements in the alleged farmers’ protests has already been exposed. It, therefore, is hardly surprising that Islamists have joined the protests. In this context, it is worth recalling that Tikait had resorted to anti-Hindu and anti-Brahmin hate speech during his rallies.
Hindupost had earlier reported:
Tikait uses the farmer protest stage to peddle his anti-Hindu agenda. Spewing venom against Pandits (temple priests), he says none of the temples came forward to as much as provide us tea despite the fact that our women offer the milk from our cattle to the temples first. He then says neither did they organize any Bhandara (food) for us as the Sikhs did. He says Hindu temples ought to learn from the Gurudwaras.
He warns the Brahmins saying “sudhar jao (improve yourselves)” and then says the Brahmins can go on pilgrimages but cannot organize food for us. He further issues threats that everyone will be made to pay. Pray, tell us what is the connection between temples serving food and farmer protests? Why should temples, most of which are anyway controlled by the government that takes away all their revenue earned through donations and temple assets, feed dubious elements who are using farmer protests as a smoke-screen for their vested interests?
As Union minister Anurag Thakur pointed out the government has already held 11 rounds of talks with farmers. He further stated that the government has increased the minimum support price for the benefit of farmers.He also took a dig at Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait, who is spearheading the farmers’ protest, and questioneded how many mandis have been shut down in the last two years.
There is ample proof on record to show that the so-called farmers protests are nothing but political tool used by the likes of Tikait and his political masters to derail the nation.
