Making Modi-government’s stand clear on AFSPA, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the time was not conducive to withdraw the special powers given to armed forces in the areas of conflict.

“AFSPA ko samapta karne ke abhi halaat nahin hai (The situation is not conducive to end AFSPA),” Rajnath Singh said while addressing media on Sunday evening, at the Attari joint check post (JCP) along the India-Pakistan international border.

The home minister also questioned Pakistan on why it was turning green fields red by supporting terrorism. He said it was high time for Pakistan to introspect its actions in supporting terrorism.

He said India was capable of protecting its borders completely from any attempt of infiltration from the Pakistan side. “Our security forces have given a befitting reply to every ceasefire violation and infiltration bid from Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir. We will continue to do that,” he further added.

On being asked about the recent attacks on churches in various parts of the country, the home minister said all minority communities were secure in India.

“Whether it is an attack on a temple, mosque or any other religious place, whatever action is required, we will take that strongly,” he told while addressing the media on the sidelines of a function in Attari, Punjab.

There is no need to create a sense of fear among the minority communities; instead, all efforts should be made to “instill confidence in them”.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
