Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said no one has the right to violate law and order in the name of faith, in an apparent reference to the violence in Haryana. “The entire country is in sorrow due to the violence. I want to make it clear that no one has the right to violate law and order in the name of faith,” the Prime Minister said, without categorically mentioning the Friday violence after the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in a rape and sexual exploitation case.
“Whenever there is a news of violence, tensions are obvious,” said Modi in his address to the nation on his monthly radio program “Maan Ki Baat”. Thirty-six people have been killed in the violence so far. He highly condemned violence of Panchkula and Sirsa that took place after the verdict of CBI court convicted Ram Rahim for rape case and murder charges.
