Anti-Muslim sentiment precipitated by the riot may help the BJP diffuse caste contradictions in central Uttar Pradesh and challenge Yadav dominance at the grassroots.
In the aftermath of recent communal riots in north India, the BJP has succeeded in carving out a politically advantageous position every time. Kasganj is no different. The party has managed to make Gupta’s death an evocative and emotional rallying issue for Hindus across castes.
“Khurafati log hai Muslim
(Muslims are mischievous). They do not want peace. It is better they leave the place and go somewhere else,” said Ramswaroop Gupta, a hardware trader and a BJP supporter. Similarly, Vishnu Gupta, another trader, called the riot “a result of the administration’s failure to prevent Muslims from going berserk”.
