It was trying to engineer communal divide and this is very dangerous for the peace and brotherhood in the State.” M A Ali added, “The truth is that today every person in India is standing against the government.Only one section of the people should not be taken care of. Interests of all the sections must be kept in mind, all the religions should flourish. Let us all unite and raise our voices. Let us unite!!!”
