Sidhu urges Indian Muslims to vote to defeat PM Modi
Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu has urged Muslim voters of a Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar to vote together and defeat Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Radio Pakistan reported that the former cricketer was canvassing in support of veteran Congress leader and former union minister Tariq Anwar at a rally in Katihar.
Sidhu stressed Muslims to recognize their strength and not to consider themselves a minority as they are about 64 percent in the constituency.
The Indian politician has been quite critical of Modi’s warmongering policies. In the wake of recent tensions between Pakistan and India, Sidhu asked his nation to beware of the leaders who banged the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into patriotic fervor, for patriotism was indeed a double-edged sword.
Without taking the name of Modi, Sindhu pointed out, in his tweet of March 2, that he deliberately fueled tension and war-mongering to take electoral benefit in the upcoming elections in India.
India is currently holding general elections phase-wise.
