The National President of Jamaat Ulema-e-Hind Maulana Suaib Qasmi is campaigning heavily for BJP and has openly announced his support for Modi.
Addressing a press conference in Assam BJP HQ, Qasmi has expressed his displeasure with the Congress saying Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was released by Pakistan after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned the neighbouring country of dire consequences, Why is China so much afraid of India? Who provided toilets and LPG gas cylinder? So, better go with the BJP.”
Qasmi heads Jamaat Ulema-e-Hind having nearly 16,000 Muslim clerics as its members.
“There is no harm in trying BJP once. We should deliberate on a development agenda for the community while bargaining for support. No personal interest should be there, which is a practice,” he said.
Qasmi has said Muslims too are craving for development and Modi is the right person for this job.
