Donald Trump calls for ban on Muslims entering in US

Washinton: In the aftermath of last week’s mass shooting in California by a Muslim couple, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a temporary but total ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Trump said that until the lawmakers figure out what to do, a block should be put there. He said that there was hatred for the Americans in a large segment of the Muslims population.

 He had called for surveillance against mosques and database for all the Muslims previously. The massacre which left 14 people dead is the reason behind Trump’s comment.While, other rival Presidential runners including Jeb Bush slammed his remarks, but many of his supporter showed their support on social media.

Trump’s comments can be associated with the prevalent Islamophobia. He is trying to turn this fear into the votes which would help his Presidential chances.

The number of hate crimes against a specific religion such as the California shooting is increasing. The stabbing case in London was another example thereof.

Samuel P Huntington had written in his book ‘Clash of Civilizations’ that a clash between different religious cultures was the probability in the 21st century especially between Islam and Christianity.

It seems to be coming true. For with each day, the hatred in the name of the religion is getting only stronger.

Trump is an example of this case where a person is influencing millions in order to fulfill his political dreams. A lot of common people who have some stereotypical fears about a specific religion or its followers, get their misconceptions increased because of such leaders.

Trump is playing a high-risk game. He knows this is the only way he can win this election by spreading the fear. This is his USP; he is trying to target a certain feeling that is pro-American and pro-Christian. He wants people to fear because when there will be fear, he can present himself as someone who can get rid of this fear from the society.

He gave such remarks in past as well when he had called for surveillance of mosques and keeping the database of Muslims in the US. This is clearly a strategy where he is using the examples of terrorist attacks and IS to ensure votes for himself.

It seems that Americans do not learn from the history. Trump is creating a monster which will be tough to handle as it grows stronger. This happened in the past as well when the US supported groups later turned into the terrorist organizations and came knocking on their door.

Time will tell how much Americans are going to agree with him but if they do, then there will be some severe consequences.
