External Affairs Minister S M Krishna today assured the Rajya Sabha that the country would not tolerate any insult to Sikh turban and take this as a national insult.
Responding to an issue raised by BJP Deputy Leader S S Ahluwalia during Zero Hour, Mr Krishna said that he rightly agreed with the Members that Pagri was not just a mere piece of cloth but a symbol of majesty, prestige and self esteem.
The Government would take up the issue with Italian Ambassador the insult to Indian coach Amritinder Singh asking his Pagri to be placed for screening on a tray meant for screening shoes by the airport authorities in Rome. Similarly, the External Affairs Ministry would invite the Australian High Commissioner to inform him about the repeated attacks on Indian students in that country and ask his government to take corrective steps.
The Embassies would be asked to extend all help and assistance to the students in distress. Welfare of Indian students outside India is of ‘’utmost importance for us,’’ the Minister said.
Mr P Rajeeve, CPI-M, urged India to review UN resolution on Libya and stop US and NATO aggression in Arab and African countries. Ms Mabel Rebello, INC, made an impassioned plea about protecting the rights of tribals in Bastar and Dantewada districts in Chhattisgarh who were caught between the guns of the Naxals and the police.
They are human beings and Indian citizens and they could not be left to fend for themselves, she pleaded. Mr Ramdas Aggarwal, BJP, raised the issue of failing Law and Order situation in Rajasthan and alleged massive cover up by way of probe of death of more than 13 pregnant mothers in Jodhpur.
One person leapt to death from a rooftop because the police were not probing murder of his wife, Mr Aggarwal said. He also raised the issue of burning alive of a SHO while his colleagues had fled from responsibility.
