Q. 23.7( 3 Votes )

Generally the movements are devoted to one particular issue but have an ideology behind them. For example movements against child marriage, dowry, believe in the values of democracy, women empowerment and social equality. Sometimes some movements gradually get transformed into political parties.

Answer :

Yes, it is true movements always come up with one particular issue but have an ideology behind them. There are various examples like child marriage, dowry, believe in values of democracy, women empowerment, rights of people of a certain caste, Reservation and social equality. This way, some movements gradually get transformed into political parties.

Parties like Bharatiya Janata Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, Shiv-Sena, etc. Are some of the parties which initially started by the group of people to deal with one particular issue but later that adopted the ideology and transformed into political parties as they gained large support from the people. For example – Regional political party like Shiv-Sena follows pro-Marathi ideology and Hindu nationalism (Hindutva). They started with one particular issue of demanding preference to Maharashtrians against the migrants of the city. It emerged as a regional political party after a movement in Mumbai. It later aligned with Bharatiya Janata Party and got the maximum support from the Maratha community of Maharashtra.


Other examples are Bharatiya Janata Party adopted an ideology of protection of India's "Hindu" cultural identity, Bahujan Samaj Party formed to support Bahujans ie, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Castes (OBC), as well as religious minorities, etc.


Thus, from this example, it is proved that “Sometimes some movements gradually get transformed into political parties.”
