New Delhi [India], January 4 (ANI): No criminal or communal conspiracy would be able to succeed against the composite culture of the country, said Union Minister of Minority Affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi over the Bulli Bai app case.
Naqvi on Monday said that action will be taken against those found guilty in the case.
Speaking to ANI, the Union Minister said, "As soon as the government got information about this matter, the government within 10 minutes blocked such a site that was trying to spread hatred and create communal tensions. Action has been initiated against it."
"No criminal or communal conspiracy would be able to succeed against the composite culture of the country," he said.
