The NCP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Majeed Memon has created a controversy after he referred the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as ”Dhobi ka Kutta”. This statement by the NCP leader comes after Prime Minister had attended Ashara Mubaraka event held in Indore to commemorate the death anniversary of Prophet Mohammed’s grandson Hussain which was organised by Dawoodi Bohra Community.
#WATCH NCP’s Majeed Menon makes a crude remark on PM Narendra Modi says, “Modi ji, Bohra samaj ke pass gaye iss vichaar se ki shayad musalmano ko rijhha liya jaayega, lekin na woh idhar ke rahenge na hi udhar ke, dhobi ke kutte wali baat ho jati hai.” pic.twitter.com/5lDrby0WWD

Speaking to ANI, Majeed Memon said, “Modi ji, Bohra samaj ke pass gaye iss vichaar se ki shayad musalmano ko rijhha liya jaayega, lekin na woh idhar ke rahenge na hi udhar ke, dhobi ke kutte wali baat ho jati hai“. Modi reached out to the Bohra community in hopes that he will appease the Muslims. But he will be left with no support, like a ‘dhobi ka kutta’.
He further said that “As soon as Narendra Modi tries to involve other sections of the society by stepping away from his ideology, he faces opposition from organisations like VHP”. Memon with this derogatory comment meant that the attempt by the Prime Minister to involve minority communities in the nation build process will result in him getting caught in between his politics and ideology.
Interestingly, the Muslim leader from the NCP is trying to downplay the Muslim outreach programme initiated by Prime Minister Modi. The PM has known to have a good relationship with many Muslim religious leaders since his tenure as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. His Muslim outreach programme seems to have caused worries to some section, as they have been resorting to spreading fake news regarding this event.
Recently, Saba Naqvi, a journalist with questionable intelligence seemed to be unhappy about the recent PM outreach and went to share a fake narrative about the absence of women in the ceremony even though there were a large number of Muslim women attending the event. It was followed by Congress-backed Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani, who resorted to spreading Photoshopped image from the event.
