Govt taking all steps to protect country: HM on IS

NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said the Centre is taking all steps needed to protect the country and asserted that the people of all religions and castes will fight the terror forces “with all their might”.
He was asked about terror group Islamic State (IS) reportedly threatening in a video to take revenge over Kashmir, demolition of Babri mosque and communal riots in Gujarat and Muzaffarnagar.
“We are taking whatever steps need to be taken to keep this country secured. And I feel all people of this country have a sense of confidence…people of all castes, religions will fight the terror forces with all their might,” Singh told reporters on the sidelines of ‘International Buddha Poornima Diwas Celebration’ organised here.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, who also attended the celebrations, asserted that such type of “propaganda” videos by terror outfits will not be able to influence the people of the country.
“These kinds of propaganda videos keep coming. ISIS or whoever propagating these kind of things is not going to influence the minds of the people of India.
“The people of India have decided that they will not allow these kinds of activities to take root in the country,” he said.
