Asked about the OIC criticism, Naqvi said, "We are doing our job with conviction. The Prime Minister whenever he speaks, he talks about the rights and welfare of 130 crore Indians."

"If somebody cannot see this, then it is their problem. India's Muslims, its minorities, all its sections, are prosperous and those people trying to vitiate this atmosphere of prosperity, they cannot be friends of Indian Muslims," he told reporters.

The Minority Affairs Minister asserted "secularism and harmony is not a "political fashion", but a "perfect passion" for India and Indians.
