Manaz claims that this name is just a gift to Narendra Modi for successfully winning the election for a second time. She also feels that Modi has given a big relief to Muslim women by bringing in the triple talaq bill
New Delhi: The country may be swept in a Modi tsunami but away from the hustle and bustle of New Delhi, Gonda in Uttar Pradesh is witnessing a different kind of Modi euphoria. A Muslim family has named its newborn after the sitting Prime Minister of India – Narendra Damodardas Modi, in Wazirganj area. The family after consulting the father of the child who is in Dubai named their newborn after the Prime Minister. The father in law Idris says, he has a personal faith in Modi, but the decision to name the newborn was collective.
Mustak Ahmed lives with two daughters, his son, and wife in Wazirganj area. He has been working in Dubai for the last 4 months. On Thursday, Mustak's wife Menaz Begum delivered a baby boy. Next day, she told her in-laws that she wants to name her son after Modi. Initially, her in-laws did not agree with her decision. But her Dubai based husband accepted her proposal and the family decided to name the newborn after Narendra Modi.
According to Jagran, the newborn's mother thinks that Modi is doing a fabulous job. Menaz has even filed an affidavit with the district magistrate mentioning the name of her son as Narendra Damodardas Modi. But now the grandfather says, that Mohammed will be prefixed to the name. Manaz claims that this name is just a gift to Narendra Modi for successfully winning the election for a second time. She also feels that Modi has given a big relief to Muslim women by bringing in the triple talaq bill.
At a time when Modi's popularity is at an all-time high, the opposition has been spreading a manufactured narrative of minorities being at risk. This act of Menaz Begum, of naming her newborn after PM Modi, pins into that narrative bubble.
