Baig Swears by Baharat Mata: Says,Modi ‘God’s Choice’ for India


Srinagar—The incumbent Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, is ‘God’s choice’ for India and if supported, he will be the next man of the millennium, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, senior PDP leader and parliament member from north Kashmir, has said.

Addressing a function, organised in honour of BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on becoming vice president of India, Baig referred to a couplet—“Good fences make good neighbours but something there is that doesn’t love a wall”— by American poet Robert Frost and wished that “all walls within our hearts fall and we truly feel that we belong to one mother India.”

“Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Kashmir, Sikkim, they make good fences and there is something, the humanity in us, does not love a wall. A mother has many children and our mother is one. I have one name, other has different name, colour but our mother India loves us all. She doesn’t differentiates among any of her child and we should be thankful to Bhagwan, Ishwar, Parmatma, Allah, Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha, Jains, those who have come with holy message that in the history of India, a new and modern journey has started after 65(sic) years of independence and to lead it, Modiji (Nadrendra Modi) has been chosen. He’s God’s choice,” Baig said to an applause at the event which was attended by PM Modi, Amit Shah and other top BJP leaders.

Baig then went on to compare Modi to historical political leaders and scientific geniuses like Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi and Einstein and Isaac Newton among others.

“The way Mahatma Gandhi, who to my understanding was conferred with the title of Man of the Millennium, the best person to have lived on earth in thousand years, people like Einstein, Newton, Napoleon, Lincoln came and I feel if we all work together with Modiji, he will be the man of the next millennium.”

He also “prayed that these little walls in our hearts, through your (Modi’s) leadership, fall and we truly feel that we belong to one ‘Bharat Mata’. We should act in such manner that motherland India should be proud of us. Today there are clouds all around us but hope that in next ten to fifteen years, we will be the leaders of the world.”
