Lucknow, During Ramzan in Uttar Pradesh, there is a lot of political iftar. Almost all political parties have been organizing Iftar party. Apart from this, leaders of all parties organize Roza Iftar in their respective constituencies. Political Iftar is also being organized in Bihar adjoining UP, but this time Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav is going to host Iftar in UP. are hesitating.
After the crushing defeat of the SP in the assembly elections, the displeasure of the Muslim leaders in the party is being cited as the reason. It is being said that if the angry Muslim leaders of organizing Iftar will get a chance to sit together, then the number of angry leaders against Akhilesh Yadav may increase. Therefore, such an event should be avoided now. Due to this, the SP chief has not yet fixed the date for organizing Iftar.
At present, when will the SP’s Iftar party be held? There is curiosity among the people of the Muslim community associated with SP, because for years SP has been organizing Iftar party on a grand scale. But this time in the changed political environment, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav is going for Iftar events, but when will the Iftar be organized on his behalf? He has not yet taken any decision regarding this. Because of this all kinds of political speculations have started. The question is being asked whether Akhilesh wants to end the tag of being a Muslim-Yadav party on the Samajwadi Party.
That is why he is not going to meet Azam Khan, who has been in jail for two and a half years. Nor is he answering the questions raised by the Muslim leaders of the party speaking in favor of Azam Khan. While party MP Shafiqur Rehman Burke and Azam Khan’s close aide Fasahat Ali Khan have alleged that Muslim leaders and Muslim society are being ignored in SP.
Due to such allegations, now the question has also arisen whether Akhilesh Yadav is thinking of stopping the practice of organizing Iftar which has been going on in the party for years. Organized at the party headquarters. Apart from Muslim leaders of various parties, eminent Muslim Maulana of Lucknow also attended such events. After Akhilesh Yadav became the Chief Minister, the venue of such events changed from the party headquarters to the Taj Hotel. Other opposition parties of SP also started organizing Iftar. Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati had also organized Iftar party at Taj Hotel while in power, the district has now been closed. At present, iftar was a symbolic gesture in UP earlier. And the political parties used to see a big message in this to increase the reach of the minority community. But now the thinking being done in the SP regarding the organization of Iftar parties shows that the times and the political circumstances have changed.
