New Delhi: In a first of its kind incident, a politician has been slammed by all parties for refusing to play politics after a communal incident involving people from two different religions. In a country where anything and everything gets politicized, this behavior of the politician has been termed unacceptable by one and all.

The politician, whose name has been withheld due to security reasons, was the first one to reach the site of the incident but instead of cashing in for political gains, he resolved the fight there.

Speaking to Faking News, a leading politician of a national party said ,”This kind of behavior by one politician reflects bad on all of us. What will people think, we are becoming incompetent? If we can’t even politicize a clash between people from two religions then what else are we going to do? Our job is simple, whatever happens, blame other party for igniting communal tensions, claim that we are the only ones to bring harmony and instigate a bit more trouble alongside. How can he not execute such a simple task?”

Agreeing with his colleague, another politician said ,”Elections are due in a state like UP and he doesn’t want to play politics over religion anymore? What else are we going to do for the next 5 months in UP if we stop politicizing every incident with even the tiniest hint of communal tension?”

When we spoke to the politician under attack, he said ,”I just thought it would be good to tell people to stop fighting for a change. My political instincts fell asleep and resulted in me getting in a lot of trouble with my fellow politicians.”

However, the politician has assured everyone that he will reform and prove himself by playing politics over every religion in the world in the coming few months.
