Why is Islam relevant to the N-deal?

The N-deal story has had many twists and turns with the logic similar to an Ekta Kapoor mega serial.
With the key cast members Dr. Singh and Mogambo Karat refusing to back down from their stances, it looks like this one is going down the wire. The reactions of the key parties clearly suggest that they are looking forward to the elections and are playing the cards accordingly. The key combatants in UP have already started playing the minority card with both the SP and BSP attempting to analyze the deal with the Muslim base being a key decision factor. There are several important reasons for the N-deal to be passed or discarded like India's energy independence, cost of energy in the future etc.
However why does religion become important in this discussion?
Apparently Mayawati thinks so and holds discussion with leading clerics on this issue.
There is no stipulation in the contract which limits the supply of power to people based on religion. The overriding factor according to these degenerates is the issue that the deal is with the US the so called anti-Muslim devil. Signing this deal might antagonize them to certain Islamic states. Why are the Christians not protesting for the bill, if one listens to this logic from Mayawati and others, this bill is definitely pro-Christianity? Perception to certain external countries is apparently important to these scoundrels. This deal will not solve the country's energy problems, however this gives us an opportunity to address it. However bringing in irrelevant factors like religion into the mix the politicians have shown that they do not have the cojones to resolve this issue and are only interested in playing to the narrow Muslim votebank.
If this deal indeed falls on its face, one can read Karat shouting, "Mogambo kush hua".

Next thing may be Indian cinema theatres should not exhibit Hollywood films. The funny thing is that Muslims from India are sufficient in number in the US to have their 'own' associations (one of their important pastimes is Modi bashing)! The Evil Satan is not good for India, but good enough for the Satan haters to live and enjoy in the Satan's own den.

To remind everyone, the first person to communalize the N-deal issue is a Polit Bureau member of our favorite party -- CPI(M). Polit Bureau member MK Pandhe is the inventor of this religious connection of the deal!

Mayawati does not care about the deal one way or the other. That is equally true of most other regional parties in India (barring the Communists of course). Her primary interest is in upstaging Mulayam's muslim vote. Hence the pandering to clerics.

Poor comrades! They thought they can blackmail Mulla(yam) Yadav by playing the minority-secularism card. They should have known that politicians like him interpret politics in the most practical way, cash and kind.

If and when a no confidence motion comes in the parliament, comrades will find themselves in the predicament of voting along with BJP! That is, if they want to show that they can bite as much as they can bark.

Read the article at the link below by "strategic affairs editor" Siddharth Varadarajan. No prize for guessing why it did not appear in The Chindu.
