SBSP (Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party) Chief Om Prakash Rajbhar has opened talks with AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi to discuss the possibility of an alliance for the Uttar Pradesh (UP) Assembly polls due in 2022.
भारत को हिंदू विहीन करने आये ग़ज़नवी के भांजे सालार गाज़ी को बहराइच में मार कर धर्म की रक्षा करने वाले महान हिन्दू सम्राट सुहेलदेव जी के नाम पर "सुहेलदेव समाज पार्टी" बनाने वाले ओमप्रकाश राजभर ने महमूद ग़ज़नवी को आदर्श मानने वाले ओवैसी को गले लगाया

Owaisi buoyed by the recent victory his party registered in Bihar has set his sights on BJP-ruled UP and is said to have met the SBSP chief to push for an alliance between the two. In the meeting that took place last Wednesday, the two leaders are believed to have expressed their willingness to work together in order to defeat the BJP.
Owaisi also expressed the possibility of the two tying-up with Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP which would be contesting the UP Assembly polls. In allying with Owaisi, Rajbhar is actually betraying his own legacy considering that his party has been named after Hindu King Suheldev.
Raja Suheldev saved Bharat from the Islamic invaders by not just defeating the army but also beheading Salar Masud, the nephew of Mahmud Ghazni in the battle of Bharaich. The defeat of the Islamic forces put an end to the raids of the Ghaznavids after Masud’s death in addition to pausing Muslim conquests into Bharat between 1033 and 1187 CE.
Raja Suheldev has today been reduced to a figure used for gathering votes by political parties during elections. Rajbhar is no different and has decided to ally with Owaisi who swears by the ideology of Mahmud Ghazni. Political opportunism should not be so blind that it disrespects those Hindu heroes who went to great lengths to save Dharma.
In fact, Rajbhar has even shamelessly shared the media coverage report of his meeting with Owaisi on his Twitter page. Rajbhar wanting to defeat the BJP is in itself not a problem as every political party aims to defeat its rival, perceived or otherwise. However, misusing the names of great Hindu heroes for narrow political gains is highly condemnable.
If they are not going to follow the ideology of those after whom they have named their parties, then the likes of Rajbhar might as well change the name of their parties. This alliance between Owaisi and Rajbhar is nothing but political opportunism and a great insult to the legendary Raja Suheldev.
