Outgoing Vice President Hamid Ansari Gets Slammed For His “Muslims are feeling insecure” comment

In his last interview before demitting the office of India’s vice-president, Hamid Ansari has said that Muslims in the country were experiencing “a feeling of unease”.

“A sense of insecurity is creeping in” as a result of the dominant mood created by some and the resultant intolerance and vigilantism, he added. Ansari also said he shared the view of many that intolerance was growing. In hard-hitting remarks during an interview to Rajya Sabha TV, he ascribed the spate of vigilante violence, mob lynchings, beef bans and “Ghar Wapsi” campaigns to a “breakdown of Indian values” and to the “breakdown of the ability of the authorities” to enforce the law. “…and overall, the very fact that (the) Indianness of any citizen (is) being questioned is a disturbing thought,” Ansari said.

This is how people reacted to Ansari’s “Muslims are feeling insecure” comment:
