Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with a group of eminent Muslims to assuage the community’s fears.
Prejudice on the basis of religion or caste is “out of question” for his government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told a group of eminent Muslims on Tuesday.
Modi’s assurance that “all communities are treated equally” assumes significance after the recent spurt in attacks on Muslims by self-styled cow vigilante groups in several states.
“One of the main issues in our meeting was the perceived fear among Muslims across the country. I told him that you are the Prime Minister of the entire country and no citizen, irrespective of the religion, should feel unsafe. He (PM) said, “We treat all communities equally. We don’t believe in any prejudice on the basis of religion or caste,” Maulana Qari Syed Mohammad Usman, president of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind told HT.
PM Modi had also agreed to set up a special committee to listen to the Muslims and their issues, Maulana Usman said.

“All communities are treated equally” great assurance indeed!
But his subordinates are the one who is to implement this,
but sad, often it goes the other way round.
Modiji’s promises look always pleasant but sad…
