Obama’s comment unfortunate but correct: Rajnath

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday termed US President Barack Obama’s statement on religious divide in India as unfortunate but has endorsed his opinion.

At a press conference here after attending a function at the Taralabalu mutt in Karnataka, he said, “It is a fact that India is divided on religious lines cannot progress. I think that comment was really unfortunate that India is divided on religious ground. But I endorse his view. He (Obama) is correct.”

On the context of controversial ‘Ghar Wapsi’, he said, “There is no scope for any activity like ‘Ghar Wapsi’ in the nation as the BJP completely believes in secularism. We will be committed to tackle issues that would divide people on communal lines. The government under any circumstances will not entertain such acts by any group or individual.”

The union government has taken steps to maintain good diplomatic relations with all the countries across the world and the move would definitely play crucial role in tackling complicated issues like border disputes with neighboring countries, terrorism and internal security of the nation.
