Narendra Modi: Ayodhya is not the issue of the coming elections – Rediff Correspondent

Narendra Modi with a Muslim leader.

Darul Uloom DeobandAccording to sources in Gandhinagar, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi met a range of Muslim leaders including the Deobandis in the last week of Ramazan. In an off-the-record conversation, a Muslim community leader from Ahmedabad said that an important Islamic scholar and a member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board had a 90-minute discussion with Modi during Ramzan.

The source said, “To the surprise of visiting Islamic scholars from Uttar Pradesh, Modi assured them that the Ayodhya is not the issue of the coming elections.”

Narendra Modi with his Muslim constituency.The source claimed that Modi gave three reasons while debating the controversial issue of Hindu nationalists’ demand to build a Ram Temple where the Babri Mosque stood once.

Modi has allegedly said that if former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s government in its six-year-term could not solve it, then why are the Muslims worry now? He also quoted the UP court judgement on the issue and said that issue is now in the Supreme Court.

Modi has reportedly also said that more than 50 per cent voters were born after 1989—when the Ram Temple movement took shape. These young voters do not resonate much with the issue.

The source also said that Modi also defended his controversial remark in an interview to Reuters to visiting Muslims.

Muslims with Narendra ModiIn the interview when asked if he had any regrets over the 2002 Gujarat riots, he had said, “Even If I am in the back seat of a car and a puppy (kutte ka bachcha) comes under the wheels, isn’t it painful? It is. Whether I am a chief minister or not, I am a human being—I will be sad if something bad happens anywhere.”

Modi told the Muslim group that he wanted to say ‘chinti’ (ant) but interviewers (agency’s reporters) may not have understood the Hindi word, so he used “puppy”! Since long, Modi has been meeting Muslim leaders and interacting with them privately.

  1. This is the real face of our ” emerging saviour” a fact noted by Radha Rajan (yes i am aware of her own stalinism and penchant for russia) and he is right. Modi is extremely lucky that hindus are so much demoralised and divided that they are seeking hope in such a man who has been brutal with hindus in his reign just for development.

    Even during riots, 34 percent of killed were hindus a higher figure than elsewhere and so it is utter nonsense to talk about him in a positive manner. The true fact is that we hindus are persons of low moral calibre (sorry if it hurts) and so we have produced endless shameless leaders like Modi, MK Gandhi, Nehru who have fattened upon our votes, support and once they get power, they recall that this is not a nation of hindus but of “hindustanis”.

    Likes of Gautam Sen are unable to see through the materialistic forces behind Modi and hope a hindu revival but let me tell everyone we hindus with certain exceptions are unable to produce men of worth and we are worse than christis and muhammadis in dedication to our cause.

    By 2050, there will be no hinduism left and we are fated to see that unless our spineless, stupid and greedy youth understands that even worse tragedy shall befall our country once we throw off native culture and create a vacuum.
