New Delhi – Prominent Muslim cleric and imam of India's historic Juma Masjid in Delhi Syed Ahmed Bukhari met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him that innocent Muslims must not be targeted, India TV News Desk reported.
During his half an hour meeting with PM at Prime Minister’s residence, Shahi Imam said security agencies of the country should be more transparent while confining terror suspects. “I urged the prime minister that while detaining people for terrorist activities or suspected links with ISIS, special care must be taken to ensure that the lives of innocent Muslim youth and their families are not ruined,” Bukhari told IANS.
Bukhari also took up the issue of the minority character of the Aligarh Muslim University and the Jamia Millia Islamia University.
He told Modi that the government’s stand in the Supreme Court on their minority character had created grave concern among Muslims.
