Indian spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar gave a befitting reply to Pakistan's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. Khar attacked New Delhi for the citizenship amendment law and alleged that PM Modi tarnished the "secular image" of India. "Absolutely not," Sri Sri said. He said, Muslim women in India have been freed from Triple Talaq, and they are happy. "There are many developmental programmes for minorities in India, the benefits have tripled," he added. Stepping up the attack, Sri Sri further said that it was completely irrational for a government to level these charges where their minorities were in great trouble. "Minorities in Pakistan do not have the same rights as they have in India. How can someone say that minorities are suffering in India?" he asked. Sri Sri said the amended citizenship law does not affect Muslims in India. The law, he said, is for those minorities who have lost hope in the neighbouring country. "It has nothing to do with Muslims in India, it has been said so many times by the Home Minister."
