'Violence in the name of religion will not be tolerated in 21st century India', Congress President Kharge's statement on Nuh violence

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Tuesday said violence in the name of religion cannot be tolerated in 21st-century India. Also, he said that if people do not unite against such divisive elements, the coming generations will have to face the consequences.
Congress president Kharge said, "What is happening in some parts of Haryana or what the RPF constable did is like giving a deep wound to the heart of Mother India." Kharge said that such incidents raise serious questions about the weak law and order situation and our weak constitutional institutions.
Kharge appealed for peace and demanded the strictest punishment for the culprits. He said, "Violence being spread in the name of religion in India in the 21st century is an attack on the foundation of our civilization and equality of all religions. This cannot be tolerated under any circumstances."
The Congress chief said, "The tendency of disintegration that is visible in the fabric of the society these days is the result of spreading hatred in the society for the greed of power." He said, "Poisoning the poison of enmity among the public and making them fight among themselves is like making fun of our constitution."
In a tweet, Kharge said, "If today we do not unite and raise our voice against these divisive elements, generations to come will have to bear the consequences. Quit hatred, unite India."
Four people were killed and several others injured in the violence that broke out after an attempt was made to stop a VHP procession in Nuh on Monday. A mosque was set on fire in Gurugram's Sector 57 area in the early hours of Tuesday, killing an imam.
Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij said that the person who wanted to disturb peace in the state conspired for violence in Nuh, where a curfew has been imposed.
