Jiss din woh mujhe bula lenge, ush din bahot saare logon ke secularism khatre mein pad jayenge. Isliye principal jaanta hun unke secularism ko khatre mein na padne dun, isliye chup chap apna karya karun aur shasan ki yojanon ka laabh sab logon tak pahuncha dun. (I feel I’m not a celebration there. That is why nobody will invite me there, and I don’t need to go. When nobody will name me, then what’s the level of going there. I do know that I cannot get any such invitation. The day they are going to invite me, then lots of people’s secularism shall be at risk. Therefore, I don’t need to their secularism and can desire to quietly work and be sure that the advantages of the federal government’s schemes reaches everybody,” he added.
