BJP’s Tacit Support to Revanna Reveals Their Misogynistic Ideology

Dr. Sudha Mishra, spokesperson of UP Congress, says it is clear from the episodes in Karnataka, Manipur and Brij Bhushan, that BJP gives more importance to staying in power than saving a woman’s dignity. Her views:

Misogyny is ingrained in the fundamental ideology of Bharatiya Janata Party, following the footsteps of its mentor, the RSS. First they have in their psyche traditional roles assigned for women where she has to one step behind the menfolk. There are no progressive opportunities for women in their scheme of things. Their tacit support to Karnataka sex tape scandal accused JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna is not an isolated occurrence; there are numerous examples that point it out starkly.

I do not need to remind people of how women wrestlers protested against harassment at the hands of Brij Bhushan Saran Singh and yet the party did not take any action against him. For a face-saver, the party gave the Lok Sabah ticket to his son and got one of his proxy elected in the Wrestling Federation.

Another horrible example is Manipur women who were paraded naked under their nose. Or take the case of Lakhimpur girl abduction and torture cases more recently. So much for women safety in Yogi Adityanath rule. Indeed, the Nari Shakti slogan is merely a lip service to the cause of women empowerment. On the ground, the situation is only getting worse under BJP watch.

To return to the Karnataka incident, there too the BJP leadership, started issuing run of the mill, ‘textbook’ statements of concern only after there was a national outrage over the incident through social media. Who can deny the fact that the BJP state president BY Vijayendra had earlier raised concerned over the issue and cautioned the central command of the party against giving ticket to Prajwal. Yet, the party not only gave him the ticket but Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself campaigned for him and sought votes for him. The party cadre was unhappy with BJP’s alliance with the JD(S) but the party leadership in its arrogance ignored the calls because they have little concern in reality for women dignity.

As always, PM Modi has maintained a radio silence on the gruesome crimes committed against women. Despite knowing everything and being warned by his cadre, he chose to promote the man who exploited hundreds of daughters because their 400-paar target is more important than the modesty of India’s daughter The Centre is having all kinds of intelligence set up and organizations and it could have easily carried on an internal investigation and check before colluding with such a man and giving him their support.

On the contrary, they provided the accused slip away from the country and take refuge in Europe. This also raises questions on their hollow slogan of `Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. As I said earlier, the BJP is drunk on power and will go to any length to stick to the chair. The words like justice for women, or Nari Shakti are mere tools for their image makeover. Behind the smokescreen, they are misogynistic to the core and wants women to remain relegated to lower rungs.
