New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday spoke to former US ambassador and foreign issues expert Professor Nicholas Burns through a video conference. During this time, Rahul again raised the issue of intolerance and compared the protests in the US with India and said that intolerance is increasing in both countries.
Rahul Gandhi has said in the meantime, "I think we are the same because we are tolerant. We are a very tolerant nation. The DNA here is considered tolerable. We are going to accept new ideas." He said that we are open minded, but the surprising thing is that it is disappearing now. It is very sad that I do not see the level of tolerance that I used to see before. It is not visible in both the countries. Former Congress president and MP from Wayanad Lok Sabha seat Rahul Gandhi has said that, "Partition is indeed a weakening of the country, but those who divide do portray it as the power of the country."
Nicholas has said, "In many ways India and America are the same. We both fell prey to the British colony, both of us, in different centuries, liberated ourselves from that empire." Rahul has said, "When African-Americans, Mexicans and others in America divide and divide Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs in India, you are weakening the foundation of the country. But then These people who weaken the foundation of the country, call themselves nationalists. "
