SOFT HIN­DUTVA

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Barely had triple ta­laq cru­sader Ishrat Ja­han joined the BJP on Jan­uary 1 than its West Ben­gal unit pressed her into ser­vice against Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s Tri­namool Congress. She and lawyer Nazia Il­lahi have been roped in to cam­paign in the by­polls to the Ulu­be­ria Lok Sabha seat and the Noa­para assem­bly seat. Ma­mata has been mum on triple ta­laq for fear of alien­at­ing Mus­lim men, but the TMC also or­gan­ised a Brah­min sabha to woo up­per­caste Hin­dus in Birb­hum.
