Accusing the Opposition of remaining silent on Pakistan’s “atrocities on Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Christians”, Modi said, “Jis tarah ki nafrat hum logon se karte hain, vaisa hi swar ab desh ki sansad ke khilaf dikh raha hai. In logon ne Bharat ki sansad ke khilaaf hi andolan shuru kar diya hai (The way they hate us, a similar voice can be heard against Parliament now. These people have started protesting against India’s Parliament).”
