REACHING OUT to Muslims, PM Narendra Modi Sunday paused for several minutes in the middle of his speech as a muezzin called for prayers at a nearby mosque.

 

Modi was speaking in full flow when he stopped as the muezzin made the call for prayer from Golbari Masjid. “This is our parampara (heritage). We should pay respect to all religions and respect their rituals and customs… We should be respectful so that the unity of India is maintained,” he said after the muezzin’s call for evening prayers ended.

The gesture impressed many in the crowd. “That was really sensitive of him. I will vote for him if he delivers on all his promises,” said Mansoor Syed, a college student.

Highlight of Modi’s speech

#I have 3 point agenda that is development, development at a fast pace and development from all sides-

Have you heard of any corruption since we have come to power? Arey bhooka rehna pasand karenge lekin janta ke jeb se ek rupayee chori nahi karenge
