मुस्लिमों को सबसे ज्यादा पद्म पुरस्कार किसने दिये? कांग्रेस ने, अटलजी ने या मोदी ने?

If we look at the names of Muslim Padma awardees during the Congress and BJP tenures, one thing emerges more clearly that both parties preferred names close to them on ideological grounds.

Politics has been going on in India since the beginning regarding Muslims. If Muslims had not been treated as a vote bank, the economic and social condition of this community would certainly have been much better today. The government and the opposition have their own claims about the work done for the betterment of the Muslim community. But instead of examining these claims and promises, today we will know who gave this society the highest national honor like the Padma Award. Although numerically, Congress has ruled the country for most of the time, that is why it has given this honor to most Muslims, but it is also worth noting whether Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister? Be it the NDA government or now these two leaders have taken full care of the respect of Muslims during the tenure of the government of Narendra Modi.

The special thing is that if we look at the Padma awards given to Muslims during the tenure of the Congress governments, it is known that most of the upper class people were involved in them. Muslims who were awarded the Padma during the tenure of the Congress government include famous singers, musicians, actors-actresses, dancers, poets, painters, doctors, Kashmiri activists, wives or other relatives of politicians, NGOs, government officials, government officials. relatives and Congress party leaders etc. While during the tenure of the NDA government, such Muslims are being honored with Padma awards, whose names were not known at the state or national level before the announcement. Among the Padma awardee Muslims during Prime Minister Modi’s tenure, one is campaigning to save cows, one is going to cremate abandoned bodies, and one is an archaeologist who wants a Ram temple in Ayodhya.

If we look at the names of Muslim Padma awardees during the Congress and BJP tenures, one thing emerges more clearly that both parties preferred names close to them on ideological grounds. The BJP may accuse the Congress of ‘Muslim appeasement’, but it is also continuing this tradition. During the first NDA regime (1998–2004), 534 Padma awards were distributed, of which 30 were given to Muslims (including the Bharat Ratna to Ustad Bismillah Khan) meaning that the BJP gave about 6 percent of Padma awards to Muslims. At the same time, the Modi government has given a total of 902 awards (till 2022) and this figure includes only 50 Muslims. That is, the share of Muslims has decreased to 5.5 percent. The figures for the year 2020 should also be considered here as this year maximum 12 Muslims have been awarded the Padma.

However, if we look at the figures from 1954 to date, an annual average of 6 to 7 per cent of the Padma awards given to Muslims, including the six Bharat Ratnas during the NDA rule, were also done by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now Narendra Modi. Also retained approx. Apart from this, the matter of giving respect to Muslims, talking about government schemes, by starting schemes for the minority community in various fields and conveying the benefits to the Muslims has also been done as much as it has been done this time. The last eight years. During the tenure of the Modi government, Muslim women also got freedom from the evil practice of triple talaq. But still there is a section of society who want to do their politics by creating an atmosphere of fear towards BJP in the minds of Muslims, but now slowly Muslims are also understanding the truth of such people. The Muslims of the country have now realized that the children of those who misled them have progressed, but the children of the poor Muslims are still forced to struggle.
