GD Topic: Narendra Modi refuses to wear skull cap

Narendra Modi, who is often seen donning a red turban over his head, refused to wear skull cap—Muslims’ traditional headgear, offered by maulana Hazrat Sufi Iman Sahi Sayeed Mehendi Husain. "I wanted to felicitate Modi after hearing about the 'sadbhavna' mission fast.
I offered him the cap, but he said he would not wear it. I think he feared wearing a skull cap may dent his image," maulana told The Economic Times.
BJP dismissed the incident saying that it is not an issue. "Narendra Modi has clearly said his policy is not to appease any section of society unlike other parties. Our approach is development for all and treating everyone equal,'' party spokesman Vijay Rupani told ET. "Thousands of members of the minority community have come here but nobody insisted that Modi put on a skull cap. This is a non-issue which is being turned into a big one by our opponents."
