The law, he noted, was passed by both of those Properties of Parliament with mind-boggling support. “A big number of political functions and MPs supported its passage. This Act illustrates India’s centuries-previous culture of acceptance, harmony, compassion and brotherhood,” he stated.

Mr. Modi stated, “This is the time to sustain peace, unity and brotherhood.
