Sudip Bandyopadhyay speaks on secularism and communal harmony during Zero hour
Hon’ble Speaker Madam, I want to say that we Indians are firm believers of secularism and communal harmony. We are also believers that unity and diversity should be our integral national philosophy. But of late we are witnessing that Dalits and Muslims are being tortured in different places of the country.
We should rise to the occasion. India as a country must ensure that every section of the society has the the right to live with prestige and dignity. We also demand that the people who are carrying out violence in the name of gau raksha must be dealt with harshly as per the laws.
Only by giving advertisements in different newspapers government’s success cannot be projected. The government must demonstrate that it is serious about maintenance of secularism and communal harmony in the country.
