By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru : Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remark on religious tolerance is widely being seen as an assurance to the minorities and majority both communities and we all need to welcome and support ..PM Narendra Modi cannot be silent spectator on any religious group, of majority or minority communities to incite hatred against each other .He should sack the minister who spoke on communal hatred and disqualify the MPs who spread communal hatred. Some time silence is good an some time it is not good and some time silence is criminal and absence of communication or amounts to abetting the crime and hatred. . His statement 0n 18-02-2015 as prime minister of India that his government would not allow any religious group, of majority or minority communities to incite hatred against each other is indirect candid admission of guilt that he proactively allowed as CM Gujarat in 2002 to incite hatred against each other by majority or minority communities by keeping himself silence on the matter. At that time he should have taken action on hate mongers whether they belong to minorities or majority communities .Violence Communal riots Inhumanity by majority or minority communities need to be put down by iron hand and strict law need to be enforced. PM Narendra Modi did historical mistake knowingly or unknowingly by keeping himself silence when Gujarat was burning and he did not spoke.
Barack Hussein Obama statement need to be taken seriously .Breaking his silence reportedly on the rising incidence of attacks on churches and aggressive religious conversions, the Prime Minister said on 18-02-2015 that his government will ensure complete freedom of faith.Narendra Modi asserted that everyone had the right to retain or adopt the religion of his or her choice without coercion. He also warned that his government would not allow any religious group, of majority or minority communities, to incite hatred against other."Mine will be a government that gives equal respect to all religions," Modi said at a meeting organized by the Syro-Malabar Catholic church to celebrate the canonization of two Indians. The PM's comments come not just in the wake of hate speeches by fringe Sangh elements, but also after repeated concerns raised by US president Barack Obama about growing religious intolerance in India. In a strong warning to the fringe elements, PM Narendra Modi said on Tuesday , "We cannot accept violence against any religion on any pretext and I strongly condemn such violence. My government will act strongly in this regard."He appealed to all religious groups "to act with restraint, mutual respect and tolerance in the true spirit of this ancient nation which is manifest in our Constitution". Modi pointed out that India was the land of Buddha and Gandhi and "equal respect for all religions must be in the DNA of every Indian".Breaking his silence on growing incidents of religious intoler ance since the NDA government came to power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asserted his government's determination to protect freedom of religion and the citizen's right to choose in this regard. Anything else would be antithetical to the vision of modernity and unleashing of aspiration that he has otherwise articulated for 21st century India. As Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi had earlier broke his silence over the 2002 communal riots in the state, saying he was "shaken to the core” by the violence. "I was shaken to the core. 'Grief', 'Sadness', 'Misery', 'Pain', 'Anguish', 'Agony' -- mere words could not capture the absolute emptiness one felt on witnessing such inhumanity,”
