A must must watch video of post interview analysis by Fareed Zakaria. Modi ji just flipped him on his views. ◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆◆ ⇨Modi smart, tough and driven, I underestimated him- says the man who interviewed the Indian PM Fareed Zakaria He describd the 64-year-old as being "among the sharpest" he has met. "Narendra Modi is among the sharpest I have met. I underestimated him. He is very smart, intelligent and focused. He is very driven and has a long term agenda. He wants to be a statesman at the world stage. He is a man who looks to the future and not into the past," the CNN journalist said. Narendra Modi, in the interview which was aired on CNN-IBN throughout Friday, expressed his faith in Indian Muslims, asserting that the al Qaeda stood no chance in India. "The Indian Muslims will live for India and die for India. The al Qaeda is being delusional if it feels the Indian Muslims will listen to it," he said. The interview was his first since taking office as PM. His comment earned him bouquets and brickbats in equal measure. "This is his powerful assertion of his personal faith in Muslims. This is what he has been saying. This is the same PM who said he wants to see Muslims carrying a Quran in one hand and computer in another hand. Inclusive nationalism is the core of his sense of India," BJP spokesperson MJ Akbar said. The Congress, however, was unforgiving. "Indian Muslims don't need a certificate from anyone. Modi is saying this as he is going to US where he was keen to get a visa. There is a sizeable Muslim population in the US," party leader Sandeep Dikshit said. Zakaria, however, differed. "Modi doesn't want to do drama for drama's sake. He believes in executing things. He has got the majority and the backing of the public. He harbours no ill-will against the US on the visa denial issue. That's his practical side. He wants to be a leader of a united India. He doesn't like divisions in India on the basis of caste and religion. Modi got both China and Japan to invest in India. Now he will do that with the US," Zakaria said.
