Post-communal era?

Not yet. AUDF is a muslim party from Assam, headed by one 'industrialist' Badruddin Ajmal. Mr. Ajmal has a degree from the Wahabi madarsa Deoband, that the Talibanis come from.  He also sits on the advisory board of Darul Uloom Deoband. Outlining his party's strategy, Mr. Ajmal was categoric in his assertions.
"[Badruddin] Ajmal said that Congress leaders, Ahmed Patel and Gulam Nabi Azad, had sought the AUDF’s support to the UPA."
Further, he was clear that any support to Congress was dependent upon its commitment to the fight against 'communal' forces.
The ‘outside support’ to the UPA.....is an acknowledgement of the nationwide mandate for the Congress, for stability and against communal forces. The day we feel the UPA is not living up to our expectations, we will withdraw the support,” he said.
Chief among his demands:
...[are] critical issues like flood and erosion, NRC update, influx, reservation of third and fourth grade government jobs for local candidates and early completion....
These are codewords for abrogation of nuclear energy treaty with US, illegal Bangladeshis, and reservation for locals. The last one is errily similar to Raj Thakre's demands. Media busybodies have paid scant attention to this dangerous trend. I doubt he will invoke the same opprobrium that Raj Thakre did. I don't know why. :)

The demand for reservation for locals is a farce. It is only because of bastards like Ajmal that the illegal Bangladeshis are having a gala time in Assam.
