Rebuffing allegations that intolerance was rising in the country, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on December 23 said there was no nation in the world as tolerant as India.

Singh, who was in Lucknow to attend the 114th foundation day of King George’s Medical University, told reporters: “The tolerance that exists in India, I don’t think that it can be found in any corner of the world.” He said, “India is the only country in the world where people from various prominent religions co-exist peacefully... They have contributed in making India empowered, self-reliant and prosperous and will continue to do so.” Singh’s statement assumes significance in the wake of Naseeruddin Shah’s remarks in reference to the killing of a policeman in Bulandshahr. The veteran actor on December 21 said that the death of a cow was being given importance over killing of a policeman. Asked about the Centre’s surveillance order, the Home Minister, who is also the Lucknow MP, said, “The Ministry has already given its clarification in this regard. Since, Parliament is in session, I cannot speak anything outside... Whatever I have to say, I will say in Parliament.”
