Talking to IANS after the meeting, Ilyasi said: “Mohan Bhagwat visiting us is a privilege. Bhagwat came to Imam House for a meeting and he is our Rashtra Pita and Rashtra Rishi. The unity and integrity of the country should be maintained. We may all worship in a different way, but before that we all are human. We live in India and are Indians.”

When asked if he referred to Bhagwat as ‘Rashtra Pita’, Ilyasi said, ” Absolutely, he is ‘Rashtra Pita’ (father of the nation).”

Umar Ilyasi’s brother Suhaib Ilyasi said, “Our father had an old relationship with the Sangh. Mohan Bhagwat had come to the mosque on the death anniversary of Jameel Ilyasi. It was a family programme and it should be seen in that context only.”
