Mamata’s ‘appeasement’ of Muslims — including job reservations and state funds for imams — has given the state BJP an opportunity to accuse her of being ‘anti-Hindu’. So, the chief minister is caught up in a whirlwind, attending Islamic festivals as well as Hindu ones, trying to project that she does not favour any particular faith.
