New Delhi – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India is a “heaven” for Muslims. In an interview with a prestigious American newspaper, Modi was asked about the future of Muslims in India. In response, he pointed to the economic success of India’s Parsis, a minority group, and said that “wherever Muslims are in the world, they face persecution, but in India, they have found a safe haven.”
Modi also responded to allegations made by the United States that India is not doing enough to stop the spread of hate speech. He said that India is committed to the rule of law and that it will investigate any allegations of wrongdoing.
In addition, Modi spoke about a range of other issues, including China, Israel-Palestine, and the global economy. He said that India should be compared to other democracies, not China. He also said that he is in contact with leaders in the Middle East and that India is committed to peace in the region.
Modi’s comments are likely to be welcomed by Muslims in India and around the world. They are also likely to be met with skepticism by some critics, who say that Modi’s government has not done enough to protect Muslims from discrimination.
