Modi will rule for 15 years, says Muslim cleric

Last updated on: May 16, 2014 12:37 IST

National president of the Jamaat Ulema-e-Hind, Maulana Suhaib Qasmi, has said that the Congress party has got a lesson of its life in this election.

"The Congress has sowed the seeds of communalism in Hindustan. They deserved this drubbing," he said.

Qasmi came along with a bevy of his supporters to join in the celebrations under way at the Bharatiya Janata Party headquarters in Delhi.

"Under Modi sahab's leadership India, including all its religious minorities, will be embarking on the road to development," Qasmi said.

"Modi sahab will lead the nation for the next 15 years with this decisive victory,” he said.

"Minorities, especially Muslims, have no need to fear Modi sahab as the Congress has been trying to create an impression that he is communal. You will soon get the taste of his leadership," Qasmi said.
