National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) chairperson Justice K G Balakrishnan has said that attacks on minority religious places sullying India image internationally.

“It sends a wrong message to the international community about our country. People think bad about India, especially since this country has a great track record of maintaining its secular tradition. This was the case even before the word secularism was added to our Constitution. Everyone must feel secure,” he said in an interview to an English daily.

He said that attacks on religious places “sully the image of India” and send “a wrong message” to the international community. He asked the government to deal with such incidents swiftly and strictly.

“If there is any instance where an Indian feels insecure because he belongs to a particular community or an institution associated with his community is under attack, it will create a wrong impression about India internationally.”

Asked if he was of the view that there was a feeling of insecurity among minorities, the NHRC chief replied in the negative. “No. As of now I don’t think they have such a feeling. But they certainly feel annoyed over these minor incidents. They don’t think there will be some serious incident. But we must understand that in this country, religion and language are touchy subjects.”
