Those who take law in their hands will not be spared: Prime Minister Modi

New Delhi: Those who take law in their hands and resort to violence will not be spared, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday, in an apparent reference to the violence in Haryana following the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda chief in a rape case.

The entire country is in sorrow due to the violence

Without mentioning the Friday violence that left 36 people dead after the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in a rape and sexual exploitation case, the Prime Minister said “India is the land of Lord Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel, and no act of violence is acceptable.”

“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.

“Violence in the name of faith will not be tolerated. Whether it is faith based on community, political ideology, individual or tradition,” he asserted.

The Prime Minister assured that the Constitution provides scope for redressal of all kinds of grievances and in the end, those responsible will have to bow before the law.

“Whenever there is a news of violence, tensions are obvious,” said Modi in his address to the nation in his monthly radio programme “Maan Ki Baat”.

“Those who take the law in their hands or resort to violence will not be spared, whoever they are. The law will determine accountability and the guilty will be punished,” he said.

As many as 30 persons died in Panchkula and six were killed in Sirsa town after followers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim went on the rampage following a special CBI court verdict pronouncing him guilty in a rape case.
