    New Delhi: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi figures on the cover of the forthcoming issue of Time magazine which praises him in an article for development of the state he has been ruling for over a decade but wonders if he can become the Prime Minister.
    The cover of the Time magazine's March 26 issue features Modi, with the caption: "Modi means business but can he lead India".
    In an article titled "Boy from the backyard", in the forthcoming edition, the US magazines describes Modi as a "controversial, ambitious and shrewd politician". It also mentions his series of day-long Sadbhavana fasts to reach out to the people of the state.

    "It's Modi in makeover mode: an act of self-purification, humility and bridge building in a state that is still traumatised by the Hindu-led anti-Muslim massacres of 10 years ago and the flawed investigations in their wake...," the article says.
    The Time magazine article says Modi is a firm, "no-nonsense leader" who can steer India out of a "mire of chronic corruption and inefficiency".

    Muslims groups express dismay at Time cover story on Modi

    Mar 19, 2012

    Washington: Expressing outrage at the Time magazine's cover story on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, a leading group of Indian American Muslims on Sunday called for an international campaign against the prestigious weekly through email, letters and social media networks - Twitter and Facebook.
    "This is an unethical article. We don't expect such a glorification of someone who was involved in massacre of Muslims in Gujarat 10 years ago," Shaik Saad, spokesman of Muslim Peace Coalition said.

    The New York-based organisation of Indian American Muslims sent a mass email to its members and supports calling for an international campaign against the Time magazine.

    Saad said the group is seeking a meeting with the editorial board of the Time magazine to "sensitise" them with the sentiments of the Muslim community in the US and India which has been deeply hurt by the "glorification" of its recent article on Modi, the cover story of its latest issue of the Asia edition.

    Earlier in a mass "action alert" email, Shaik Ubaid, the New York State Co-Chair of Muslim Peace Coalition USA and a founding member of the Coalition Against Genocide that was instrumental in getting Modi's US visa revoked, denounced the Time magazine's glorification of Modi as "bad journalism and an obscenely insensitive act", as it was perpetrated during the 10th anniversary commemoration of Gujarat pogrom.

    The "action alert" also called for a similar campaign against the Washington-based think-tank Brookings Institute, which a day before too wrote an unusual long piece on Modi with the headline "India's Most Admired and Most Feared Politician: Narendra Modi".

    Morarji Desai doesn't seem to have made it to the Times Cover!

    But if you meant famous leaders from Gujarat, then its fine and along with him, you could probably add M. A. Jinnah as well to that list! :evil:
