The Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind today said it was not worried about the safety and security of Muslims if Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister.

“We are not worried about any Modi. Even if 50 Modis come, we are not afraid. We are not afraid of anyone,” Jamiat
Ulema-i-Hind President Maulana Syed Arshad Madani told reporters here.

He was asked whether there was any fear among Muslims if Modi became Prime Minister on account of the Gujarat riots.

Modi was given a clean chit by an Ahmedabad court after the SIT report did not name him of involvement in the Gujarat riots of 2002.

“Hindus and Muslims both are originally from this country and they have been living peacefully for centuries. Fighting does not solve any problem. Everyone should live with love and affection,” Madani said.

He, however, said that a number of innocent Muslims have been killed in fake encounters after being labelled
terrorists.

Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind is organising a religious conference on February 28 at Amoni in Nagaon district.

It will be attended by the Grand Imam of Medina Munawara Mosque Abdul Mehsin al-Qasim.

    My earnest appeal to Muslim brothers and sisters ! Please do not become VOTE BANK COMMODITY. Be part of mainstream. Those who scare you of Modi or of RSS or of BJP are your real enemy. They shall never wish you to be part of mainstream India. They want you to stay in ghettos. To keep you isolated, scared and ghetto inhabitants, because it is their political aim.
