The Rashtriya Janata Dal on Thursday alleged that the advertisement published in a daily claiming about prosperity of Muslims in Gujarat was "misleading."

The said advertisement in a daily has sought to glorify the development of the Muslims of Gujarat on the index of education, employment, bank deposit and health facilities undertaken by the Modi government, but no no amount of publicity will neutralise the psychological impact of Godhra riots among the minority community, RJD Bihar unit president Abdul Bari Siddiqui said in a statement.

The advertisement has freshened up the wounds of Godhra riots in the muslim population, he said and described the publicity as the groundwork to pave the way for his visit to Bihar later this week to attend the BJP's national executive at Patna.
