The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that it is ideology and an established policy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that there should be no discrimination, disturbance and conflict on the basis of religion.

“This is nothing, but an established policy of (Prime Minister) Modi and also it is part of the ideology of the Bharatiya Janata Party because we feel that there should be no discrimination, no disturbance

and no conflict on the basis of religion,” said BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi.

“It is a proven policy which can be easily experienced during our rule in several states over the years,” he said.

The BJP leader also backed Prime Minister Modi’s assertion that he does not believe in politics which seeks to divide people on communal lines and will never speak communal language.

“Whatever Prime Minister has said, it is nothing new. He had already said it categorically a few months back on the floor of the House. Then he had reiterated in the conference of the Bishop,” Trivedi told

ANI here.

“He (the Prime Minister) said the same thing in an interview that we will not allow anything, which creates some sort of communal unrest or any statement which creates communal divide,” he added.

Prime Minister Modi, who met a delegation of Muslim leaders here yesterday, said the politics of majority and minority has caused a lot of damage to the nation.

He also discussed social, economic and educational issues related to Muslims.

During the meeting, the members of the delegation said that the Muslim community which has rejected the divisive politics of vote-bank was interested in development. The members also appreciated Prime Minister Modi’s leadership over the last one year expressing desire to forge a partnership for progress and development.

The 30-member delegation was led by Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, the Chief Imam of All India Imam Organization.

Union Minister of Minority Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval were amongst those present in the meeting.
