    Muslims Greet Modi with Saffron Shawl

    After being snubbed by Chief Minister Narendra Modi during his recent rallies held as part of his Sadbhavana Mission, Muslims today offered him a saffron shawl with tridents, damru and “Om Namah Shivayah” printed on it.

    And unlike the incident in Navsari, where he turned down a kaffiyeh offered by a Muslim, Modi leaned forward to take the saffron shawl even as Vijay Rupani, BJP Rajya Sabha member, announced that the “Muslim samaj here has gifted the CM a shawl”.In September, Modi had also turned down a skull cap offered by a Muslim cleric from Kheda.While the Sunni Muslim Samaj of Porbandar offered the saffron shawl today, the Junagadh Sunni Muslim Jamaat gave him a 2.5-foot idol of Lord Hanuman and a miniature of Lord Krishna’s chariot. He also got a miniature of the Ajmer Sharif Dargah.“Through the shawl and idol we tried to send across the message of sadbhavana,’’ said Kasam Sandhar, president of the Anjuman Islam Porbandar.

    “The incidents of the skull cap and kaffiyeh were planned acts to create controversy. The skull cap is a religious symbol,’’ said Kadam Salot, a minority leader from Rajkot.

    So, Modi is in a bind?

    The people are clever indeed!

    India is such a circus!

    Religious folks all over, populist schemes that run the country dry, defence scheme not implement lest there is a scam, allies threaten the Central Govt with blackmail...........

    Never a dull moment.

    The Am Admi gets at least this free.........ulcers!

    So, does this cement Modi's "communal credentials" now? :lol:

    Regardless of what the media says, Modi does have a good support from the Muslim community in Gujurat. It would have been very difficult for him to be in power with our their votes.

    INQULAB ZINDABAD........... KOWMI EKTHA ZINDABAD............ LONG LIVE HINDU-MUSLIM UNITY............ We live together and die together........... no one can divide us when we stay united. When Hindu and Muslim are united then it is a signal to the western world to be cautious. History tells us that UNITY IS DIVERSITY. Alarms will be ringing in the congress camp. Now that we are uniting together for forming a stronger nation, this is a good step forward.
