Facing severe criticism from all quarters for mishandling Muzaffarnagar riots, a desperate Mulayam is nowadays seen making an all-out effort to reach out to Muslims. Mulayam is strategically choosing to meet Muslims in and around Saharanpur, the home of Darul Uloom Deoband, a world famous Islamic seminary. He is also trying to woo Sikhs and is seen raising pitch for them. Observing the recent popularity of Narendra Modi, he says BJP is not only anti-Muslims but anti-Sikhs too. Interestingly Mulayam is also showing his new-found concern and is highlighting the threat China is posing for India and the Central government’s indifference towards it. One does not wonder about the sudden concern for the country and the countrymen.
