Exit polls predict win for incumbent Indian PM Modi

Several exit polls released by Indian media on Sunday night saw a big win for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), predicting that it would win anywhere between 287 to 306 seats in the lower house of the parliament, or the Lok Sabha. A party or coalition needs 272 seats in parliament to form a government. One exit poll by Neta NewsX, however, forecasted Modi’s alliance falling 30 seats short of the majority mark. The opposition Congress Party-led main opposition alliance, led by Rahul Gandhi, is projected to win between 128 and 132 seats. Gandhi seemed to question the way the elections were conducted by the autonomous Election Commission. “The EC used to be feared & respected. Not anymore,” he tweeted Sunday evening, without giving any details. Voting in India’s national elections ended Sunday with the seventh and final phase of a grueling poll that lasted more than five weeks. Exit polls, though, have a mixed record in a country with an electorate of 900 million people. Results will be announced on May 23, drawing to an end six weeks of voting and a long, bruising campaign. Modi faced criticism early on in the campaign for failing to create jobs for the youth. But he turned the campaign into a fight for national security after tensions rose with Pakistan, and attacked the main opposition Congress Party for being allegedly soft on the country’s arch foe. Modi’s popularity remains vast as many Indians credit him with programs that have helped the poor and cut through red tape and corruption.

As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
