The leftist parties in the Indian state of West Bengal
have been wooing the prominent minority Muslim groups in the state by
propagating anti-American sentiments. They oppose the Nuke Deal between India
and the United States . The parties have been negatively portraying US roles in Iraq and Afghanistan .
The ruling leftist coalition in West Bengal was very
comfortable with the Muslims in the state till recent days for their success in
uprooting any communal riots in West Bengal . However , recently the Nandigram
issue has angered many muslims in West Bengal.
