Prime Minister Modi Is Examined for Supposed Speech Misrepresentation

In a recent development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has drawn criticism for refuting claims that he has singled out Muslims in his talks, even though there is ample evidence to the contrary. In a news interview with News18, Modi angrily denied ever bringing up Muslims on stage, even though there are numerous footage floating around that show otherwise. This dispute started when Modi implied that Muslims would inherit India’s wealth if the Congress party won power during a public event on April 21.

Modi’s Denial

In response to interviewer Rubika Liyaquat’s sharp questioning about his using of derogatory language like “infiltrators” and “people who have too many kids” to describe Muslims in his speeches, Modi makes this denial. Even with his remarks clearly in context, Modi struck a dramatic tone, expressing surprise that his words could be interpreted as explicitly directed at Muslims. In an attempt to divert attention, he said that remarks about large families were true for all cultures, not only Muslims, and that the main cause was poverty.

Declaring Objectivity

Moreover, Narendra Modi declared emphatically, “I did not say Hindu or Muslim. All I stated was that you should only have as many children as you are able to raise. Keep it from getting to the point where the government must take care of them. He made a point of saying that he would not play the Hindu-Muslim card and that doing so would disqualify him from holding public office.

Conflicting Data

Nonetheless, Modi’s assertions run counter to the easily accessible data. Modi specifically brought up the Congress party’s purported bias towards Muslims during the rally in Banswara, Rajasthan, implying that they give Muslim interests precedence over other considerations when allocating resources. This claim stemmed from misreading former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s comments on the distribution of resources.

Dispelling False Information

Since then, fact-checks have refuted Modi’s story, showing that Singh’s remarks really alluded to giving marginalised communities—such as women, children, SCs, STs, OBCs, and minorities—priority rather than only Muslims. Modi continued to promote false information in spite of this, even going so far as to assert that women’s riches would be in jeopardy if the Congress party were to win power because they would seize the holy mangalsutra worn by Hindu women.
