Our minority concerned PM has spoken again!
According to the PM the “underprivileged and weaker sections of our society“ does not include any ordinary Hindus. One would like to ask him whether, if a minority group promotes communal violence and discord, will they be dealt with firmly too. Perhaps he believes that minorities do not promote such discord – they are by definition, innocent and ‘victim of circumstances’.
Maybe he should also advice how best to establish the relationship. Should policemen be advised to marry their daughters to minorities; for how better can you establish “trust and confidence”?
New Delhi, Sept 15 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday said the police should build a relationship of trust with minorities.
‘Special efforts must be made to establish a relationship of trust and confidence between our police forces and the minority communities,’ Singh said addressing the All India Conference of DGPs and IGPs here.
‘Let me you of your solemn obligation towards the common citizen, someone who has little by way of resources to defend himself or herself against crime and criminals. Indeed, it is your solemn duty to protect the weak and the defenceless.
‘Those who seek to promote communal violence and discord have to be dealt with firmly. Special efforts must be made to establish a relationship of trust and confidence between our police forces and the minority communities. You must not fail in this aspect.
‘The underprivileged and weaker sections of our society- the minorities, the SCs and STs, women and senior citizens– should feel adequate confidence in the ability of our police force to protect.
‘The common man should go about his daily life with a sense of security. He should have faith in the policeman and the police station. And this I believe is the real test of our efforts, a test that we cannot afford to fail,’ said Singh
