Q: What is your opinion on ban on NDTV ? Do you also think Emergency has returned?

A: A. If they have violated any law, they should be treated at par with others who defy any law. No one is above the law. There is nothing like an emergency now as news papers and news channels are not censored. Even now many of us attacking the government without any fear.

Q: People like Kejri, Sanjay Nirupam etc are seeking proof for Indian army's surgical strikes over terror outfits across LoC in POK thus insulting our brave soldiers. Is it not an insult to our brave soldiers and NDA govt headed by PM Modi? Do we need Pakistan to discredit our claims when we have such traitors amongst us?

A: We live in a democracy and all of us enjoy right of freedom of expression. Let them state their stand but they have lost credibility on the issue of tackling Pakistan. Our forces have done a great job.

Q: Congress seems to be indulging in dirty politics even over successful surgical strikes and BRICS declaration as well! PM Modi deserves all appreciation for his initiatives as also in isolating Pakistan globally!

A: Don't forget that the Congress is an opposition party. It is its primary responsibility to oppose the Government. Prime Minister has isolated Pakistan as far as terror is concerned. Congress cant get any positive response from people on this issue.

Q: My understanding is that Islam does not allow suicide and killing of unarmed people. Why is this not taught to the muslims?

A: Who will teach them? Preachers are becoming traitors against their own religion. Now even Islamic nations are victims of Islamic State which promotes butchery of innocent citizens.
