Saifullah’s father thanks Rajnath for Parliament message

“Unka shukriya. Yeh sandesh purey India ke liye hona chahiye. Humare mantri chotey-chotey logon ko izzat dete hain. I thank the home minister. The message is meant for everyone in India. The minister respects even small people like us,” says Mohammed Sartaj, slain militant Saifullah’s father.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said in Parliament today that the government was proud of Mohammed Sartaj. “I express sympathy for the father and I am sure the House joins me,” Rajnath said in Lok Sabha while briefing the House over the Tuesday’s Lucknow terror encounter. The minister said that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) will be probing the Lucknow encounter.
