Minorities' patriotism beyond suspicion: Rajnath Singh

By Ians

New Delhi, March 23: The patriotism of religious minorities in India can't be questioned, Home Minister Rajnath Singh declared on Monday, adding only the Narendra Modi government can ensure their security.

"We cannot question the patriotic sentiments of the minority communities," Singh told the media at the 10th annual conference of State Minorities Commissioners here.

"One can very well serve India while continuing to pursue his religion," he added.

The minister was asked to comment on The All India Muslim Personal Law Board's request to the government to safeguard the interests of all citizens including minorities.

"The NDA government led by Narendra Modi is the only government capable of providing the minorities a sense of security and end the sense of insecurity that gained ground among them during Congress rule," he said.

The Board targeted the prime minister on Sunday for his silence on the issue of 'Ghar Wapsi', alleging that Hindu hardliners had stepped up their activities and "anti-Muslim feelings" had gained ground since Modi took power in May 2014.
