Such attacks are a direct result of the climate of political untouchability & hate created against BJP, RSS and other Hindu outfits by our dominant left-liberal intellectual class & mainstream media. BJP/RSS supporters are being attacked with impunity across the country – the brutal attacks in Kerala and West Bengal are well-known but still brushed aside as ‘routine political violence’, but BJP supporters, Hindu activists & nationalists are being murdered even in Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, UP, Bihar etc.
This news has been effectively buried by the Lutyens’ Delhi editorial class – imagine the outrage if, hypothetically speaking, a Congress supporter had been attacked in such a fashion by BJP supporters in Gujarat.
The situation of people like Zahid is even more precarious – despite being Muslims, they will not get any sympathy from the likes of Teesta Setalvad, Javed Akhtar, Saba Naqvi etc who are otherwise hyperactive in creating a Muslim victimhood narrative. But more than the apathy of our secular-liberal cabal, the bigger danger to Muslim BJP supporters comes from being branded as munafiq (hypocrites) or Murtad (apostate, traitor) by the Islamofascist radicals (JeI, JuH, AIMIM, TJ, AeH, TNTJ, PFI etc) who have an iron grip on Muslim attitudes and mindsets.
