My government has only one religion - India first: NaMo

2/27/2015 7:46:29 PM

New Delhi: The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi during his speech in the Parliament today said, "My government has only one religion - India first." The PM assured the Parliament of his commitment to religious equality and tolerance.

"Nobody has the right to discriminate on the basis of religion. My government has only this ideology - India and the Constitution above all else," Modi further added. 

NaMo’s reassurance comes after a series of attacks on Christian institutions and churches in Delhi.

Since NDA came in power Modi is facing wrath of the right wing Hindu organization over the issue of Hindutva. The last Parliament session was stalled with a united opposition protesting against ghar wapasi, a campaign by extremist Hindu groups to convert Christians and Muslims to Hinduism.

US President Barack Obama during his visit to Delhi last month had stated that India's success depends on its not splintering along religious lines. Back in America, he said that Mahatma Gandhi would have been astounded by recent acts of religious intolerance in India.
