Uttarakhand Waqf Board Chairman Shadab Shams has endorsed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership and said that the country would “suffer if its leadership passes into weak hands.”

“The clouds of war hover over the entire world. An atmosphere of chaos and strife grips various countries. In times like these, India needs the strong leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He must get a third term. The country will suffer if its leadership passes into weak hands at this juncture,” Shams told PTI.

He said he prayed for a third consecutive term for Modi so that India continues to grow under his leadership.

The Waqf Board Chairman, along with members of the Muslim community, offered a chadar for Mr. Modi at the Dargah of Sabir Saheb in Haridwar's Piran Kaliyar on May 13.

"We offered a chadar at Piran Kaliyar and raised our hands praying for the formation of a strong government once again under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi so that the process of development in the country does not get derailed," he said.

‘There is no threat to the Constitution or Muslims’

Under Modi, the benefits of development have reached every section of society, he said. "The last man who never got the benefits of welfare schemes earlier is getting a roof over his head and a toilet. Roads are being built, the country is progressing on every front," he said.

Replying to a question, Mr. Shams said neither Muslims nor the Constitution of India is in danger under Modi's leadership as alleged by the opposition.

"There is no threat to the Constitution or Muslims. The only thing in danger is the shop of some politicians. Opposition leaders are spreading this lie to mislead people of the country, especially Muslims," he said.
