New Delhi: An article published in the Wall Street Journal states that after consecutive victories in 2014 and 2019, the BJP is on course to win again in 2024. The article written by Walter Russell Mead states that the BJP is the most important foreign political party in the world and cannot be underestimated, according to an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal. In addition, the article states that "India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is, from the perspective of US national interests, the world's most important foreign political party and that India is emerging as a major economic power in the world and the Indo-Pacific." appears, along with Japan, as the linchpin of American strategy."
India is a strong power, which America also needs
The printed article said, "In the near future, the BJP will dominate a country without whose help all US efforts to balance the rising Chinese power will fail." Author Mead believes that the BJP is underestimated because it looks like something out of a political and cultural history unfamiliar to most non-Indians. However, Mead believes that India is a complex place and has other stories to tell.
The Wall Street Journal states that the BJP's electoral victory has led to a distinctive 'Hindu path' along with modernization. "Like the Muslim Brotherhood, the BJP rejects many of the ideas and priorities of Western liberalism even as it embraces key features of modernity and, like the Chinese Communist Party, the BJP is a global organization with more than a billion people." hopes to lead a nation to become a superpower."
Much like the Likud party in Israel, the BJP combines a fundamentally pro-market economic stance with populist rhetoric and traditional values, even as it channels the anger of those who have rejected the cosmopolitan, Western- have felt excluded and despised by concentrated cultural and political elites."
This is Narendra Modi's India, it has flaws too
American analysts, especially those with left-liberal ideologies, often look at Narendra Modi's India and ask why it is not like Denmark, and their concern is not entirely misplaced. Journalists critical of the ruling coalition face harassment and worse. Religious minorities who are against the Hindutva that characterizes BJP's India talk of mob violence and largely refer to hostile official measures such as anti-conversion laws as well as occasional outbreaks of mob violence Is. It says many fear the power of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, or RSS, a nationwide Hindu nationalist organization with close ties to the BJP leadership.
Mead wrote - Some of the BJP's most notable recent political successes have come in the Christian-majority states in India's northeast. The BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, a state with a population of nearly 200 million, enjoys strong support from Shia Muslims. The opinion piece states that RSS workers have played an important role in efforts to fight caste discrimination. After a series of in-depth meetings with senior BJP and RSS leaders, as well as some of their critics, I am convinced that Americans and Westerners in general need to engage more deeply with a complex and powerful movement."
RSS strong organization, Yogi influential leader
The Wall Street Journal states that from a group of mostly fringe intellectuals and religious enthusiasts, the RSS has become "perhaps the world's most powerful civil-society organization". Its rural and urban development programs, religious education and revival efforts, and civic activism, driven by thousands of volunteers from all walks of life, have succeeded in creating political consciousness and focusing the energy of hundreds of millions of people.
Recalling his meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Mead writes, "The movement seems to have reached a crossroads. When I met Yogi Adityanath, who was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, There was a Hindu monk serving as Rup, who is believed to be one of them." The most radical voices in the movement - and sometimes spoken of as the successor to 72-year-old Prime Minister Modi - talked about bringing investment and development to his state.
