JD(U) – RJD alliance ask Muslim voters to shed their veils to de-emphasize their identity. The JD(U) wants to avoid a counter-polarization, against them, so they are trying a new trick of getting Muslim voters to shed their unique dress and identity. They feel this will avoid needless media reporting and more importantly avoid from word getting out to get counter-polarization. This is the first time such a thing has been reported and these are nothing but new tricks being used by parties contenting elections. It is also being reported that community leaders of minority villages are being asked to not comment or speak to the media or talk about any hawa.
