Former US President Barack Obama’s comment on the Indian Muslims has sparked controversy. Congress MP Manish Tewari shared a video clip of Obama’s interview with CNN’s Journalist Christiane Amanpour saying he did not see it as a mere coincidence.

Obama, whom Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to as Barack in 2015, in a recent interview to the CNN said in the bilateral talks between US President Biden and PM Modi, the issue of protection of ethnic minority must be raised by Biden and if he were to hold the bilateral meet, he would have certainly asked Modi to look out for the protection of the ethnic minority else a certain point India would fail.

The Obama interview came just ahead of PM Modi’s address to the US, his bilateral meet with President Biden and the State Dinner that was hosted earlier this morning.

Manish Tewari also wrote about the strong bond between Biden and Obama saying the latter has been the biggest supporter of Biden referring that Obama’s remarks was given on behalf of Joe Biden.

US President Joe Biden was Vice President under Barack Obama’s US President for 8 long years.

PM Modi who is on his maiden State visit to the United States, during a joint press briefing at the White House was asked by a journalist about minority rights especially Muslims in India.

In response, PM Modi said India and the US both are democratic countries and the rights of a minority have never been compromised. People from different castes, races, religions, and regions get equal treatment from the government as well as from the Constitution of India.

He said his government believes in Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayaas, the one which he stressed on again during his address at the Joint Session of US Congress.     

Congress national spokesperson Supriya Shrinate also shared the clipping of Obama’s interview on Twitter, she urged the BJP supporters to watch the clipping of Barack Obama and asked if it also had something to do with international conspiracy. She taunted Modi supporters that Obama sent a message for his friend Narendra Modi.

Sandeshkhali violence: BJP slams CM Mamata Banerjee, questions Rahul Gandhi’s silence

The BJP leader said that Mamata Banerjee is risking the honour of women in Bengal in order to save her political reputation.

The alleged land grabbing and sexual harassment case in Sandeshkhali, West Bengal has triggered a major political battle among the ruling Trinamool Congress party and the opposition. BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday claimed that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is hiding something in the matter and is protecting Shahjahan Sheikh and his allies.  

The BJP leader said that Mamata Banerjee is risking the honour of women in Bengal in order to save her political reputation. Questioning why parties like CPI(M) and Congress are  silent on the issue, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that he heard that a woman leader of CPM visited the area but has not opposed the incident or made a public comment. He remarked that Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is also silent on the issue. 

Since last week, several women in the district have been protesting against TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh who is allegedly the mastermind behind the incident. Though the West Bengal police have arrested two TMC leaders, Shahjahan Sheikh is still absconding. The BJP leaders in the state claimed that the police administration has become the party office of the ruling party. 

Meanwhile, State BJP president Sukanta Mazumdar on Monday, said that the party would hold a 72-hour long protest in the coming days demanding the arrest of Sheikh Shahjahan amid the turmoil in West Bengal over the Sandeshkhali violence. He added that the probable day of protest is February 22. 

Slamming Mamata Banerjee for accusing BJP of instigating violence in the state, the BJP president said that the Chief Minister should be a little more sensitive towards the women in the state and refrain from making such statements. He added that the Trinamool Congress party was in a complete denial mode of any violence in the state initially. 

Reportedly, West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali area has been witnessing massive unrest for more than 10 days as women protestors are seeking justice against alleged atrocities committed by TMC leader Sheikh Shajahan and his aides.
