Narendra Modi and Adolf Hitler

Those who compare Narendra Modi to Adolf Hitler are unfair to Hitler for two reasons. First, Hitler was a friend of India. He helped Subhash Chandra Bose to fight against the British. Second, Hitler was a very capable man and a great leader. He died at 56. Modi is 63. If Modi had been half as capable of Hitler, he would have become Prime Minister of India long back and within five years annexed Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Burma, Sri Lanka and Maldives to India.
It took a long time for Modi to become BJP’s PM candidate. Overcoming opposition of Lal Krishna Advani and other leaders was not easy for him. Hitler took over Nazi Party within two years.
Many have spoken against Modi. We have to wait and see whether he will become PM in May. In 2009 Arun Shourie said Modi will be the next PM after Advani. Advani did not become PM. Not many thought Modi will be PM candidate in 2014. Ratan Tata shifting Nano plant from Singur to Sanand was a turning point for Modi. CNN-IBN poll shows BJP is likely to get around 200 seats and NDA up to 231 seats. Journalists like Barkha Dutt, Nidhi Razdan, Rajdeep Sardesai and channels like NDTV 24×7, representatives of NGOs who fought cases against Modi and who signed a petition for investigation in snooping on a woman, will be in trouble if Modi becomes PM. BJP leaders who opposed Modi will be out of favour.
In 1923 Hitler had tried Beer Hall Putsch. It failed. Hitler spent about a year in prison. Modi has not done anything like that. From 1925 Nazi Party grew in strength. When Hitler became Chancellor Paul von Hindenburg was President. Once Hindenburg died there was no President. Modi has not been able to tackle Governor Kamla Beniwal, a Congress appointee.
There are people who hope Modi will not become PM. They hope BJP will not get enough seats and coalition partners will oppose Modi and agree to some other leader of BJP as PM. Some hope AAP will cut BJP vote and win enough seats to keep Modi out of power.
Hitler was a vegetarian. Modi seems to be a vegetarian. He spoke against Pink Revolution and export of beef. He spoke of putting beef-eaters in jails. That may cost him votes. If he speaks against eating pork, chicken, mutton, fish and eggs he will lose more votes.
Hitler had Eva Braun as mistress. Modi is not known to have a mistress. There was a report that he was married and sent away his wife.
