Modi's address in Rajya Sabha sparks controversy:
Friday, August 11, 2017 • Tamil Comments

A day after India's outgoing Vice-President Hamid Ansari controversially said in an interview that there is a sense of insecurity among Muslims, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's farewell address in Rajya Sabha has come in for debate.  Many have found fault with the PM's choise of words.

Here we quote the speech in verbatim, as transcripted by a popular news media platform:

"Ho sakta hai bheetar aapke andar bhi kuchh chhatpataahat rahi hogi, lekin shaayad aaj ke baad aap ko woh sankat nahin rahega, ek mukti ka anand bhi rahega aur jo aapki moolbhoot soch rahi hogi, uske anusaar aap ko kaarya karne ka, sochne ka, baat bataane ka avsar bhi milega."

The translation of the same: "It is possible that there must have been a sense of uneasiness in you, but perhaps after today you would not face the dilemma, and you would experience the bliss of emancipation and you could not act and express yourself according to your original manner of thinking (which was moulded by your stint in West Asia)."

What do you think about Modi's speech, folks?
