Arrest of Yogi Adityanath

UP Government to blame
That the sporadic clashes in Gorakhpur and its adjoining areas in eastern Uttar Pradesh since the evening of Republic Day have not erupted into vicious communal violence is a comment on the wisdom of the people and not the commitment of the Samajwadi Party Government to maintain social harmony and peace. Indeed, had it not been for the initial ham-handed response of the civil administration and police of Gorakhpur, who obviously acted in the manner they did at Lucknow's behest, to a minor incident of stone-pelting, the region would not have been smouldering with rage today. While 'secular' politicians and their parties, most notably Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav and his Samajwadi Party, seeking to fish in Gorakhpur's troubled waters, have been quick to lay the blame at the BJP's doors, their version of events does not necessarily reflect the truth. On the contrary, their attempt to give a communal twist to an otherwise inconsequential <b>issue is nothing but a pathetic effort to consolidate Muslim votes with an eye to the coming Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh</b>. For, it is entirely coincidental that the skirmish - which had nothing to do with either Hindu anger or Muslim animus - on the evening of January 26 should have occurred near a Muharram procession. Some Muslims promptly made it out to be an attack on their community; Hindus responded with matching belligerence.<b> The best way to contain and defuse inter-community tension is to rope in the services of the local MP and MLAs, along with other politicians, and hold them partly accountable for any breach of peace. BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, without being prompted to do so, tried to undertake such a mission but was placed under preventive detention by the police</b>. Their argument: Allowing him access to the troubled areas would further exacerbate the situation. This is, of course, balderdash and calculated to paint the BJP in the bleakest of communal colours to instigate a Muslim backlash. Even if it were to be true, instead of arresting Yogi Adityanand, who is immensely popular in the region, the police could have asked him to remain confined to the Gorakhpur mutt. It chose not to do so, and thus invited trouble.

This is not to suggest that the mindless violence witnessed in Gorakhpur and elsewhere for nearly a week is justified or the correct response to the administration's delinquent behaviour. Nor is it to suggest that the BJP should abdicate its responsibility and allow Mr Yadav and his cohorts to leverage the communal tension for political gains. Yogi Adityanand must ensure that his supporters do not add fuel to the fire; the BJP must restrain its cadre and demonstrate that it can act in a responsible manner in the face of grave provocation. <b>This is an excellent opportunity to expose the Samajwadi Party and its leadership which, increasingly unnerved by the prospects of a drubbing in the Assembly election, is trying to polarise voters along communal lines</b>. The Samajwadi Party cannot be allowed to succeed in this diabolical game. Meanwhile, the Centre would do well to ensure there are enough forces at the State Government's disposal. If it fails to do so, Mr Yadav will use it as a convenient cover for calculated inaction and worse. <b>It would be a pity if the Congress, propelled by its own vote-bank politics, were to succumb to the temptation of emulating the Samajwadi Party's tactics. </b>
