'Here as family member': PM Modi's outreach to Bohra Muslim community ahead of Mumbai municipal polls

New Delhi/IBNS: In a massive outreach measure, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a new campus of an educational institute of the Dawoodi Bohra Muslims in Mumbai on Friday and walked hand-in-hand with the head of the community, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin.

The move comes ahead of the high-stakes municipal elections in the city.

"I have known four generations of Syedna sahab's family. I am here as a family member, not a PM. You have fulfilled a 150-year-old dream by setting up this institute," PM Modi said as he visited the new campus of Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah (The Saifee Academy).

The institute, a part of Mumbai's one of most influential communities-Dawoodi Bohra Muslims, works to protect the learning traditions and literary culture of the community, and the new centre will impart Arabic learning.

The event was part of PM Modi's second visit to the city in less than a month, which saw him unveil several infrastructure projects earlier in the day.

On Jan 19, the PM inaugurated and laid foundation stones for projects worth over Rs. 38,000 crores in the financial capital.
