NEW DELHI: BJP brass has decided to organise meetings with Muslim community leaders to thank them for helping maintain peace and harmony after the Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict.

Senior BJP leaders and ministers have been asked to reach out to the community leaders, a senior party member said. Likewise, UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath is also likely to meet the Muslim community leaders.

After the verdict, BJP and RSS are sending out a message of taking everyone along. This was clear from PM Modi’s speech on Saturday when he urged both the Ram and Rahim bhakts to strengthen the spirit of rashtra bhakti. A similar tone was maintained by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, who said that for him everyone was an Indian first. The confidence-building exercise began in August when Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind chief Maulana Syed Arshad Madani visited Keshav Kunj in national capital to meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.


The second such meeting took place on November 5 at minority affairs minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi’s residence, which was attended by Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind general secretary Mahmood Madani, filmmaker Muzaffar Ali and others. Similar efforts would continue at the party level, especially when it has government in over 15 states across the country, BJP sources said.
