India only country where Muslims stop their youth from joining IS Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajanth Singh Sunday said that while all countries face the Islamic State (IS) threat, the organisation could not dominate in India due to the country’s “life values” and “family values”.

“Today the IS is being discussed a lot. But in the capacity of the Home Minister of India, I say that India is the only country where Muslim families stop their children when they get deviated from the right path. Only Indian Muslim families do this,” Rajnath said. He was speaking at a conference, Taleem ki Taquat, organised by Maulana Azad National Urdu University of Hyderabad, in Lucknow.

University Chancellor Zafar Sareshwala, who said there was a lot of positivity in the country but people “unnecessarily raised negativity”, claimed, “It was the first time in 65 years that a Union home minister had directly addressed an event of Muslims.”

Citing an example to show why the IS couldn’t flourish in India, the Union minister said, “A Muslim youth got caught in radicalisation in Mumbai and his parents came to me with the request to save him. Such are the values of our country. I have full faith that the IS can never have supremacy in India.”

Rajnath also pointed out that thousands of Indian imams had recently taken out a procession against the IS. “If this culture of the country can be saved, no one can stop India from becoming the most powerful nation with maximum knowledge in the world,” he said.

The minister said: “The education system and culture of India develop tolerance among us. I believe that such education and culture should be kept alive.”
