This was in context of apprehensions expressed in certain quarters that people from certain religions and castes, which are a minority, were feeling unsafe due to the growing domination of the majority Hindus.

Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday allayed fears that people from any religion, minority or caste had anything to fear in the country.

“I believe it does not matter whether a person is from any religion, sect, caste or follows any religious belief, all are safe in India and will remain safe,” he told the media during a one-day visit to Chandigarh.

This was in context of apprehensions expressed in certain quarters that people from certain religions and castes, which are a minority, were feeling unsafe due to the growing domination of the majority Hindus.

“I appeal to everyone that people should get out of the mindset of thinking on lines of caste, religion, being a minority or majority. They should just think that they are (all) Indians.

“As home minister, I can assure you that any person from any caste, religion, panth (sect) is safe in this country,” he said.
