Expressing confidence about the country's development under Narendra Modi's prime ministership, Shia cleric Kalbe Sadiq has said Muslims have no reason to fear.
"As prime minister, his (Modi) mentality will change automatically," the All India Muslim Personal Law Board Vice President, Sadiq, said yesterday at Chilkana village in Saharanpur district.
The Shia cleric had come to the village to participate in a religious programme.
"Due to backwardness in education Muslims are poor in economic status," he said, and appealed to them to strive for quality education.
He also asked the community to set up modern educational institutions.
