Varanasi: Like every year, members of the Muslim Women Foundation (MWF) in Varanasi are making rakhis for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan because the members think him as an elder brother and father-like figure.
Nazima Ansari, one of the MWF members said, "The Muslim women from our foundation living in Banaras (also known as Varanasi) had first sent rakhi to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji in 2013. Since then, this ritual has been continuing."
She said, "We consider Narendra Modi-ji as an elder brother and father-like figure. Hence, like every year, we are sending him rakhi this year too with a hope that he would continue to protect us and help us at the time of need."
