His presentation was to explain why is the Muslim Community of the country heavy-hearted with BJP and Modi. Modi assured to consider the issues presented.
The ghost of 2002 Gujarat riots has haunted Modi since a decade now. And it is the same ghost which has become a major threat for him to even think about the Prime Ministerial post.Convincing the Muslim Community to ease themselves against him is the only way out. After all,the path to Delhi can never be set without the support of the major Minorities.
