Paresh Rawal mocks Ansari over 'Muslim' remarks, says 'get well soon'

Sense of insecurity among Muslims triple talaq a social aberration not religious requirement Hamid Ansari VP Ansari says Muslims feeling insecure; No better country than India: BJP

"There is a feeling of unease, a sense of insecurity is creeping in", Ansari said when asked if the recent incidents of lynching by cow vigilantes were making the Muslim community apprehensive. Your paternal grandfather as well as maternal grandfather happened to be presidents of Congress and also served as members of the Constituent Assembly. BJP leader Ram Madhav, for instance, had made adverse comments when Ansari did not salute the national flag at the Republic Day Parade when then US President Barack Obama was the chief guest. Many in the political circles saw PM's remarks on Ansari as significant, juxtaposing it with the resentment in BJP circles and even among allies like Shiv Sena.

Precisely, the VP-elect said some people blow things out of proportion for certain political considerations.

"To that Hamid Ansari responds, saying, ".breakdown of Indian values, breakdown of the ability of the authorities at different levels in different places to be able to enforce what should be normal law enforcing work and over all the very fact that (the) Indianness of any citizen (is) being questioned, is a disturbing thought".

In his farewell remarks as he demitted office as Vice President, Ansari told Rajya Sabha members that the Upper House was a creation of the Constitution whose founding fathers wished it to portray India's diversity and to be a calibrated restraint on hasty legislation.

At the farewell function, Modi said Ansari could maintain a delicate balance in the House because of his "intellectual capability and skills". Leader of opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad praised Ansari for the way he conducted the proceedings of the House and recalled how he never used several honorary degrees that he got from different countries. Ansari's speech assumes significance as he chaired the House that has been the battleground between NDA and the opposition parties.

It instantaneously became a huge talking point for Thapar, a senior journalist, who was in no way associated with the Rajya Sabha TV.

He also wondered if Ansari was looking for "political shelter" after retirement.

The Prime Minister said that Shri Ansari's family has been in public life for generations.
