Home India Dadri lynching: 'Government is prepared for CBI investigation'

Dadri lynching: ‘Government is prepared for CBI investigation’

New Delhi: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said anyone seeking to disturb communal amity will not be spared and that the government was prepared for a CBI probe into the lynching of a Muslim man in Dadri so that the truth comes out.

Replying to a debate in the Lok Sabha on intolerance, Rajnath Singh said the allegations against the government over intolerance started with the lynching.

He said the preliminary report of the Uttar Pradesh government did not mention communalism, beef, or any planned murder.

He said the initial investigation by Uttar Pradesh did not reach a conclusion and the matter can be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation if the state government wanted it.

As Rajnath Singh talked about differences between Islamic sects in countries such as Iraq and Bahrain, opposition members protested and asked him to focus on the situation in India and controversial remarks of some ministers.

He said, “India is, was, and will be tolerant“, and the subject of the debate was “dangerous and self-destroying“.

Rejecting charges of intolerance hurled at the government, he said the BJP and Prime Minister Modi were the worst victims of intolerance in politics.

The country will decide who is intolerant. As far as the government is concerned, we will not allow intolerance in any circumstances,

He reached out to the opposition and promised that mistakes, if any, would be rectified by the government.

If anybody tries to disturb communal amity, he will not be spared,

The home minister said he was prepared to meet the intellectuals who have returned awards. “Let’s talk,” he said, adding that the government was willing to take any step towards harmony and correct mistakes if any.

Rajnath Singh said an attempt was made to defame the Modi government by returning literary and other awards.
