Muslims unsafe in India, says former Vice President Hamid Ansari

Former Vice President Hamid Ansari in an exclusive interview with Zee Media has finally reacted to his statement that ‘minorities are feeling insecure in India’. Ansari also talked about secularism, safety of Muslims in India and other topics in an exclusive interview with Zee Media.

Hamid Ansari said that according to his reading of the media, Muslims are still unsafe in India as they are lynched in the name of religion.

He claimed that Muslims are being targeted in Uttar Pradesh and are sent behind bars in the garb of triple talaq, love jihad, etc. Ansari, however, sidelined the question of ‘insecurity among Muslims’ and left the interview suddenly.

In his new book ‘By Many a Happy Accident: Recollection of a Life’, the former Vice President has also mentioned about his conversations and interactions with Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.
