Modi replied that India is a land of Buddha and Gandhi and its culture does not accept anything that is against the basic social values.

"India does not accept intolerance even if it is one or two or three incidents. But for a country of 125 crore people whether it is significant or not, it does not matter. For us every incident is serious. We do not tolerate it.

"Law takes strong action and will continue to do so. India is a vibrant democracy which under Constitution provides protection all citizens, their lives and thoughts. We are committed to it," said the Prime Minister.
