Sachin Tendulkar on Monday brushed aside security concerns ahead of the four Test series against Australia, saying Indian players were not bothered but confident that they would never be targeted at home.
"I don't think it (security concerns) bothers us. This (India) is our homeland. In our homeland, I don't think anyone can harm us," Tendulkar told reporters at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, where a camp began for players.
The first Test against Australia starts in Bangalore on October 9.
"We have full confidence that nothing bad will happen. This is our homeland, we should be free to move wherever and whenever we want," the master batsman said, replying to questions whether security concerns bothered players.
"I don't think there will be security concerns as such".
Tendulkar said he cannot comment on what Australians feel (about security concerns) but maintained that he does not definitely think "anyone will look to harm us (Indian players)".
