Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked Pope Francis to visit India, a significant opening towards the head of the Catholic Church who has long sought an official invitation to the Hindu-majority country.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited Pope Francis to visit his country. “I would like to see you in India,” Modi told Francis after meeting with him at the Vatican, the first time in over 20 years that an Indian leader has met a pope.
What people are saying?
LDas The lovely hug does’nt look political & sets the stage for a visit by Pope Francis to India. Pope must see how a multi-religious country with 24 mn Christians, 138 mn Muslims, 19 mn Sikhs & 966 mn Hindus stands unified & strong to be the world’s fastest growing major economy.
U(ulagam) S(sutrum) Vazhiban There’s elections coming up in the state of GOA which has a good Christian demographic. Does this all make sense now? That’s how Modi rolls! Use religion wherever possible. But in all seriousness someone should tell him not to look at the lips of guest in such close range!!
