“As far as social justice is concerned, our Muslim sisters should also get justice. There should not be injustice to them. No one should be exploited,” Union Minister Nitin Gadkari quoted Modi as saying.

According to Gadkari, Modi added: “We should not allow conflict in the society. We don’t want any conflict in Muslim society over the issue. We need to end such bad practices by awakening the society.”

Earlier, making an intervention during the discussion over the resolution passed on a new OBC commission, the Prime Minister said that even Muslim communities have backwards and marginalised and it was the duty of the government address their concerns.
