New Delhi: A video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going viral when he stressed on ‘Ilm’ (Education/knowledge), the focal point of Islam. While addressing a meeting in 2015 he said, “after Allah, the second highest word that appears in the holy Quran is “ilm”. So, we have this information but we forget it.” He was speaking after launching a book titled Education of Muslims — An Islamic Perspective of Knowledge and Education in Indian Context by J.S. Rajput.
Mr Modi further said it is the good fortune of people living in India, that we have the opportunity to follow, understand and learn so many different religions, and strands of thought, at one place.
