New Delhi, Mar 9: "Indian Muslims are capable of solving their problems... We don't need your advice.. Don't try to alienate Indian Muslims by your remarks, here or in Pakistan," warned Mehmood Madani to former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf.
Madani was speaking at India Today conclave in New Delhi on Saturday Mar 7 night. Madani is a member of Rajya Sabha and leader of Jamat-e-Ulema-i-Hind. In his candid speech he asked Pakistani leader that he or his country need not bother about the condition of Muslims in India.
Musharraf had claimed that Muslims in India were alienated which is one of the reasons for terrorism in India.
Virtually rattling the former Pakistani military ruler, Madani said, "Pakistan ki jitni total population hai , us se zyada population hai Indian Muslims ki . (Population of Muslims in India is more than that total population of Pakistan). You should be knowing this."
A stunned Musharraf, who was in New Delhi to attend the India Today conclave, was left visibly upset and did not seem to know what to say in response.
