Rajnath Singh said that “the tolerance that exists in India is unmatched, such tolerance is not found in any corner of the world.”
Home Minister also said that India is the only country where people from different religion are living peacefully for centuries.
He told to media at the 114th Foundation Day function of King George’s Medical University in Lucknow.
As per the reports of ANI, Singh also said, "there are 72 sects in Islam, all of them are found here, not even the Islamic countries have all. There’s no question of intolerance in the country."
