Out of the 505 executives questioned, 32 per cent voted for India as their favored market for investment. China secured the second spot with 15 per cent vote, followed by Southeast Asia, Brazil and North America.

Mark Otty, EY area managing partner for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa said, “investors increasingly see the potential and understand the fundamentals” in the country so “there is no doubt that interest in India has increased.”

Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) secretary Amitabh Kant, expressing satisfaction over the result, said, “the finding reconfirms and reaffirms many other recent findings.”

He further said, the government will look at the foreign direct investment policy “with a very open mind.”

“We continue to attract investments across and it is important that India becomes a part of the global supply chain,” Kant said.

Lauding the investment friendly atmosphere in India, the investors rated its vast domestic market and availability of labor as the most lucrative features.

The Ernst & Young survey titled ‘Ready, set, grow’ was conducted during March and April and includeed views of over 500 decision-makers from multinational organizations across sectors like industrial, automotive, consumer products, life sciences, infrastructure and technology, among others.

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
