Minorities should feel safe, says Sonia Gandhi
Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday said minorities should feel ‘safe’ and hoped that the Prevention of Communal Violence Bill will be passed soon. ‘The cabinet has approved the Prevention of Communal Violence Bill. I hope it is passed in parliament soon,’ she said at the launch of the National Waqf Development Corporation Limited (NAWADCO) here. ‘Minorities should feel safe and have faith in law. We must be cautious of the forces that weaken secularism in the country,’ the Congress president said. ‘The law and order machinery should ensure that if there is any issue which is disturbing communal harmony ... it should be controlled immediately and not allowed to spread,’ she said.
