BJP made lives of Muslim girls safe: Modi

narendra-modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that political appeasement is the aim of the opposition parties, including the Congress, and that it was the BJP that made the lives of Muslim women safe by bringing a law against triple talaq. Speaking in Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh, Narendra Modi enumerated the services rendered to the Muslim community following the controversy over his anti-Muslim speech in Rajasthan.

Modi made an anti-Muslim statement in Rajasthan by criticizing the promise in the Congress manifesto to conduct a caste survey. He had alleged that the opposition, including the Congress, was trying to appease some sections and would seize the property of others and give it to Muslims. Speaking in Aligarh on Monday, the Prime Minister repeated the allegation that if Congress came to power, it would seize the properties. However, he avoided the Muslim reference.

He accused the Congress and Samajwadi parties of always practising appeasement politics while doing nothing for the political, social and economic upliftment of Muslims.

Prime Minister also mentioned that he is receiving blessings from thousands of women after the government allowed women to travel to Haj without 'Mehram'.

"Earlier, due to less Haj quota, there used to be a lot of fighting and bribery was also prevalent there and only the influential people would get the chance to go to Haj. I had requested the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia to increase the Haj quota for our Muslim brothers and sisters in India. Today, not only has India's Haj quota increased but visa rules have also been made easier. The government took a very important decision. Earlier, our Muslim mothers and sisters could not go alone for Haj. The government also allowed women to go for Haj without 'Mehram' and I am being blessed by thousands of sisters whose dream of going for Haj has been fulfilled," he said.

"The eyes of Congress and 'INDIA' front are on people's earnings and properties. They want to implement the Maoist-Communist ideology, that destroyed many countries, in India," he added.
