No Muslim representation in Modi’s new govt

10 June, 2024 14:56

No Muslim member has been made a minister in the cabinet of the newly-elected Hindu extremist Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, exposing his hostility towards Muslims.

According to Indian media, the 72-member cabinet of Narendra Modi government includes 30 ministers and 41 ministers of state. The first meeting of the cabinet of the new central government will be held today, in which the cabinet will request the Indian president to convene the session of the parliament soon.

It added that 5 minority members are included in the cabinet but no Muslim member has been included.

The report further said one of the reasons for not having a Muslim minister in Narendra Modi’s new cabinet is that no Muslim from any other party other than the BJP won the election.

The member of the assembly could not be elected, but according to the Indian constitution, Narendra Modi also had the power to appoint any unelected person as a minister of state or advisor, who had to be elected within 6 months. However, he did not even bother to do so.

Out of the 24 Muslim candidates who were successfully elected as members of the assembly in the recent Lok Sabha elections, 21 belong to the opposition alliance ‘India’, one member belongs to the India Majlis Ittehad Muslimeen, while 2 Muslim candidates successfully reached the Lok Sabha as independents.
