Modi govt 8 years: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan on Monday spoke exclusively with India TV and said that outfits like PFI are a threat, and creating a planned disturbance in the society. He added that freedom should be protected continuously with full consciousness. At India TV's Conclave Samvaad, Khan spoke about several issues that are threatening the Indian society.
Responding to a question over PFI expanding its tentacles in states like Kerala, Governor Khan underlined that such extremist organisations are posing a big danger to the country.
"We need to understand that there is need to constantly safeguard our freedom. There is a dangerous game being played... I don't know who are behind this all. But I feel that states which were unaffected by the ill-effects of partition are now being targeted in a planned manner. Such nefarious plans won't succeed ever if every member of the society decides plays an active role," Arif Mohammad Khan said.
Speaking about PM Modi's rule, the Kerala Governor said that those targeting the prime minister should know that he has a special capability to perform under pressure.
When asked whether India is on way to becoming a 'Hindu Rahstra' as being said by a section of detractors, Arif Mohammad Khan said," In India, the basis of unity is 'Aham Brahmasmi Tattvamasi' (unity of the Atman (individual self or soul) with Brahma (the absolute)...how can there be any argument with such thinking or philosophy where nothing is exclusive."
