PM Modi also praised the Dawoodi Bohra Muslim community for its contribution to the country. Speaking at the event alongside Dawoodi Bhora head Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, PM Modi said that the concept of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, the world is one family, gives India an identity different from all other countries.
“The concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam gives a distinct identity to India from the rest of the world and the Bohra community is an example of it,” said PM Modi while praising the work of the community.
Addressing the Bohra community on Ashara Mubaraka, an annual gathering to remember and honour Prophet Mohammad and the martyrdom of his grandson Imam Husayn, PM Modi said,” The Community had always worked for peace and had also once worked with Mahatma Gandhi.”
PM Modi also spoke about the Bohra community’s work in his home state Gujarat,” Due to your contribution, many villages in Gujarat received drinking water. The community contributed to development in Gujarat.”
“My relationship with the Bohra community goes way back. I always felt at home with them. Even today the doors are all open for them,” he added.
