A few days ago, she spoke about growing intolerance in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Raising the issue of attack on idols of Indian Godess, she said, “The idols of deities at Shri Mari Maata Mandir in Karachi’s Korangi area were attacked on Wednesday. Not only in Pakistan, but intolerance is also growing in Bangladesh. Muslims must learn to live with non-Muslims and respect them as humans.”
She also spoke about Muslims outside India boycotting Indian products and wrote, “don’t worry more than 200 million Indian Muslims are not boycotting Indian products. Muslims outside India who are boycotting Indian products are less in number.”
