Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi speaks to NDTV:
  • Congress will come out of 'har ka hangover' and support us on Triple Talaq Bill
  • Triple Talaq Bill is not politically motivated. Bill will clear both houses
  • As far as criminal incidents (mob killings) are concerned there should be action within minutes
  • There will be 2 lakh people going for Haj this year, half of them women
  • See India's track record of peace. There hasn't been a large-scale riot. There are fringe elements who want to disturb the peace. They will be dealt with. Don't worry
  • There should be debate in parliament on population control. No nation can ignore this. There should be awareness
  • Sanjay Gandhi and Indira Gandhi and what they did before (for population control) was a dirty, unplanned method
  • You should not force anyone to do anything. But you can't refuse to sing Vande Mataram. There should be no rigidity on either side
  • If you go to any village, each person says 'Ram Ram', be it Hindu or Muslim. The country is secular not because of its minorities, but it is in the DNA of the majority community
