    0

    NEW DELHI: India election frontrunner Narendra Modi pledged on Thursday to allow Indian-origin citizens of any foreign country to return if they felt persecuted, opening the door to migrants from Bangladesh and Pakistan. In a wide-ranging interview with the Times Now channel, he also stated that there could be no talks with neighboring Pakistan unless attacks on India ceased. Asked to elaborate on remarks at the weekend about welcoming back Hindus from overseas, Modi said that India should be a sanctuary, even for those living abroad for “100-150 years.” “A person living anywhere in this world, whose passport may be of any color, but if his blood is similar to ours, then he is invited,” said Modi, according to a transcript provided to Agence France-Presse.
