Mahmood Madani said, ‘India belongs to Mehmood as much as PM Modi, Mohan Bhagwat’

New Delhi: Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind chief Mahmood Madani said on Friday that India belongs to Mahmood as much as it belongs to PM Narendra Modi and Mohan Bhagwat. Addressing the 34th General Session at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi, Madani said, “Neither Mahmood is an inch ahead of him nor he is an inch ahead of Mahmood.”

“This land is the first homeland of Muslims. To say that Islam is a religion which came from outside is totally wrong and baseless. Islam is the oldest religion among all religions. India is the best country for Hindi Muslims,” Jamiat The Ulema-e-Hind chief said.
