Jammu: A Muslim cleric joined the state unit of BJP among others ahead of the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

Muslim cleric from Nowshera-Lam area, Imaam Ikhlaq Ahmed Nakshabani joined BJP at a function here which was attended by senior party leader and MLA Ashok Khajuria.

"It is after a very long that people have found a leader of high stature such as Narendra Modi and a party like BJP which has been attracting the masses for its sincere commitment for development and welfare of one and all".

"BJP did not work on region or religion lines but embraced every one, which is the reason for its growing popularity even among the Muslims," Nakshbandi said.

Addressing the gathering, Khajuria said, "BJP is a secular party. People have started realizing the false propaganda of Congress and other self-proclaimed secularists and are now coming closer to us."

Besides Nakshabani, state youth president of Shri Guru Ravidas Seva Samiti Narinder Kesar and state vice president Gujjar Bakerwal Welfare Association Mohammed Ayeb Chowdhary joined the party at the function organised to welcome them.
