India has badly failed in safeguarding the rights of the minorities, Fazlur Rehman said.

“Ayodhya verdict shows that extremist views which dominated politics in India, are now becoming pervasive in the state institutions of India also. As extremist, xenophobic thought takes control of Indian state & society, nuclear India emerges as biggest threat to global peace”, he tweeted.
