MAURITIUS

While their days are numbered, Pravind’s MSM-ML-OPR stands behind Yogi

In its upcoming political debacle, the MSM-ML-OPR regime is clinging to power with one eye closed on dangerous WhatsApp threats to non-Hindus (particularly Muslim population) while its invite to a Hindu Chief Minister accused of anti-Islamic violence in India is not sitting well with local politicians.

It is apparent though that the MSM-ML-OPR regime is trying to play up the extremist cards by allowing threatening social media messages to circulate without taking any actions, while the rest of the population (the majority of Mauritians) remains confused on what they should do next!

In this process, Shakeel Mohamed an MP wrote to the Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth to object to the invitation sent to the chief minister of  Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath.

WhatsApp threats unfounded

In the circulation of threats against non-Hindus to avoid beaches and Hindu populated areas, there lies a clear attempt by the ruling MSM-ML-OPR regime (in feigning ignorance over the threats) to cling on to power while it ignores such threats that could cause communal disintegration in Mauritius.

The MSM-ML-OPR regime believes that the politicisation of religious festivals, for example, will bring the majority population to support its rule. It also believes it has the support of a percentage of the Muslim and Christian population.

However, we can say it loud and clear that the regime in power does not have the necessary support from the population and is holding on to power on a thinning thread that may break anytime.

We also believe the WhatsApp threats could be unfounded, as it is just an attempt to sow fear among the populace, a tactic used over time when the country is near elections and when the regime is about to lose.

Yogi’s business trip

Thus, secular Mauritius – which is a society believing in their respective faiths and in a united country at peace – will win this battle against extremism if it remains steadfast.

However, the Mauritius government’s invitation to an Indian Hindu leader labelled as extremist risk complicating the already fragile ethnic and religious fabric of the tiny island republic, while it has already divided the politicians on the real motive of the MSM-ML-OPR regime behind the invite.

Nevertheless, the chief minister Yogi Adityanath is said to be heading to Mauritius today to invite non-resident Indians (NRIs) interested in investing in Uttar Pradesh.

His circle is saying it is a purely business visit, days after rolling out the red carpet to US companies, Yogi is heading to Mauritius on Wednesday to invite non-resident Indians (NRIs) interested in investing in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Though the invitation to Yogi should remain within the limits of religious fervour and should not be allowed to spill into the scattered political debate, no one can control what is said in private.
