Vice President of India in his last interview to Lok Sabha TV said that Muslims in India are living in fear and sense of unease is prevailing among the minorities.

The complete analysis of the news has been published by Times of India in 10th August 2017 publication.

Vice President also added that due to increased illegal vigilantism, Ghar Wapsi and lynching fear has taken over the Muslims and they are unable to express their views in the way they want. False Patriotism is killing the diversity of the nation.

When asked a question why Indian values were "suddenly" breaking down, Vice President replied that "Because we are a plural society that for centuries, not for 70 years, has lived in a certain ambience of acceptance."

He was critical in his comments and was pointing towards the unlawfulness which has gripped the nation in the name of lynching and killing by Gau Rakshas.

He added that this acceptance was "under threat". "The pressure to show your nationalism everyday to anyone and everyone which is being force upon by so called culture activist is unnecessary. I am an Indian and that is it,"
