The Tableegi Jaamat fiasco has actually become a blessing in disguise. Anti-CAA protests etc may have been tolerated by many people because it would not effect them directly. But the possibility of a disease spreading is more close to the heart of every one. And when they hear that the peacefool community has been doing everything to spread the disease; that message will have a much more severe impact. There have been pockets of resistance in Muslim community, especially during vaccination drives etc. (as what happend in Kerala). But COVID-19 being a pan India threat the current behaviour from the community will put every sensible person on alert. The 'secular & liberal' establishment will not be able to change the mind set with their rhetoric, mainly because health & well being is very close to every person's heart (when compared to say national boundaries or national pride).

From what I could make out Modi (and the BJP/RSS) have now clearly identified their true voters & followers. Exercises like what happened today would perhaps only help them fine tune their numbers. Today's lamp lighting gesture clearly proves that Modi does have a lot of respect among the people, and his actions are trusted by them. In the place where I live, I don't think there are many true blue BJP chaps (the MLA & MP are from Congress), and I was skeptic about the event. But lo and behold sharp at 2100Hrs the entire street went dark and from each home there was a single lamp lighted & placed outside. And this was done with no prodding or some one walking the streets and asking people to follow the PM. Modi seems to have understood the average Indian in a much better fashion (including their like to trust good leaders and also the religious bent which every one seems to have). The nay sayer group who worried about power grids coming crashing or electric circuits tripping seems to be clueless on the people's mindset as well as on how power grids work . And the whole rumour of "the power grids would collapse" was a cheap attempt to scuttle the program.
