Gujarat’s CM Modi wears traditional Indian turban as he waves to his supporters on second day of his fast in Ahmedabad

Gujarat’s Chief Minister Narendra Modi wears a traditional Indian turban as he waves to his supporters on the second day of his fast at a convention centre in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad September 18, 2011. The pro-business Hindu leader who some think could be India’s next prime minister began a “harmony” fast on Saturday to soften his image, which has been hurt by religious riots that claimed hundreds of mostly Muslim victims, nearly a decade ago. Seizing the moment after the Supreme Court referred to a lower court a case in which he was accused of complicity in the 2002 violence, Modi is using a three-day fast to depict himself as a moderate.
