The use of Gujarat government facilities by Jamiat Ulema Hind general secretary Maulana Mahmood Madni during his visit to Ahmedabad on December 26 has led to a debate in the Muslim community.

While many see it as Madni’s soft stand on Narendra Modi, the Deoband cleric (Madni) said that the central government had provided him Z Plus security and the Gujarat government merely made the arrangements for this.

"If the bullet-proof car provided to me during the visit belonged to the Gujarat CM’s motorcade, how can I be blamed for this?" Madni said.

Targeting the Congress and SP for carrying out a tirade against him, Madni said, Muslims have so far been voting for secular parties but they can no longer create a Modi fear to get votes. "Stop frightening us," he demanded.
