MHA asks states to take strict action against people disturbing communal harmony

New Delhi, Oct. 5 (ANI): In an advisory issued to the state governments, The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Monday stated that there is zero tolerance for any attempt to weaken the secular fabric of the nation and exploiting religious emotions or sentiments.

The MHA has called upon the states to take “strictest action” as per law against such elements without any exception, stated the advisory.

The MHA stated that though law and order is basically a state subject, the ministry has been concerned with various incidents with communal overtones across the country, including the recent incident at Dadri in Uttar Pradesh.

Fifty-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq was lynched and his son Danish (22) was beaten up for allegedly eating and storing beef in Dadri’s Bishara village on September 28.
