Now Mahmood Madani says Narendra Modi is a symbol of obliteration
Monday October 28, 2013 10:07 AM, Staff Reporter

Two days after indirectly praising Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind's general secretary Mahmood Madani on Sunday described the controversial BJP leader accused of planning 2002 Gujara riots as a person who cannot be trusted.

"Today Narendra Modi has become a symbol of obliteration and destruction. He talks of development but his past deeds are full of destruction", Madani said while talking to reporters on the sidelines of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind's state convention held in Mumbai.

"The country cannot trust Modi's claims of development. For, he is talking of 'vikas' but his past record is full of 'vinash'", he said.

In reply to a question he said his opinion about Modi is same as that of the people who believe in justice. He said he had led the campaign against Narendra Modi at the time when majority of the people were backing him.

"I led the campaign against Modi in Gujarat at the time when the state and district units of a secular party was hand-in-hand with him", he said.

Pointing fingers at Congress he reiterated his claim that most Congress leaders in Gujarat do not work for Congress but work for Modi.

He said the Congress agents are spreading lies about hims becuase he posed tough questions to the party which for long fooled the Muslims.

"My only fault is that I am asking Congress to show what it did for the Muslim community. About the promises it made. About the assurances it gives in election time", he said.

"Instead of abusing me, the Congress party leaders should make public the promises made to Muslims which have been actually fulfilled", he said.

Madani had on Saturday said more riots have occurred in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh than in Gujarat. The number of Muslim youths in the jails of Maharashtra and Rajasthan exceed those in Gujarat, he added.

"In the past 10 years (since the 2002 Gujarat riots), more than 48 communal clashes have occurred in Rajasthan while 102 have been reported in the past one-and-a-half years in Uttar Pradesh. Please tell me, who is right and who is wrong?," Madani, indirectly lauding Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, told Rajat Sharma on his show "Aap Ki Adalat" on India TV.

"I don't say any such thing in private or in public to show that I support Modi. But if I compare Gujarat with Maharashtra and Rajasthan, then people will say I support Modi," he said.

"More Muslim youths are in the jails of Maharashtra and Rajasthan than in Gujarat," he said.
