    What about the terrorism by vigilante group backed by BJP affiliates, lynching people practicing a particular faith. Is lynching muslims not an act of terror, what is your government doing to stop it.

      What's about inland 's terrorism like undeclared emergency created by cow vigilantes, hindutva agenda, sedition charges against innocents? Minorities nd Muslims r continously lynching, and ur ministers comments come after long gap. Ur hardine alleies r creating Pakistan like situation. Before warn Pakistan govt should protect minorities nd Muslims in homeland not by verbally but in actual practice.
