Rajnath hails Indian Muslims for keeping IS at bay
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that the Islamic State (IS) had failed to penetrate into the country because of strong its family values and culture. He congratulated the Muslim families which have successfully stopped youths from getting distracted. He was speaking at the ‘Seva Utsava’ programme, organised by social service organisation Adamya Chetana here.

“Many countries are fighting hard to stop IS activities. I am proud that today no youth from India is getting trapped in the radicalisation efforts. It is the families which are stopping the children from getting distracted. I congratulate these families for this. We have a vision to make India safe from all kinds of extremism.” 

Singh hailed the efforts of his cabinet colleague Ananth Kumar and his wife Tejaswini for social service through their organisation  Adamya Chetana.

“I am starting my New Year from South India and that too from Bengaluru. In 2008, US president Barack Obama said that the US had to compete with two cities, Beijing and Bengaluru. We have to work hard since we are competing with Beijing,” he said.

Isro chairman A S Kiran Kumar, who was felicitated at the function, called upon Bengalureans to minimise waste generation.

“Today garbage management is the biggest problem in the city. It is good to see Adamya Chetana not producing any garbage while cooking for over two lakh children,” he said. Governor Vajubhai Vala, Union Minister Ananth Kumar, former deputy chief minister R Ashoka were present.
