We represent the true spirit of our country . and that doesnt dilute our love towards our country, religion & humanity. In my capacity as a Proud Hindu Citizen, I will always try to unite & bring in harmony wherever I can. But just wish to remind you that empathetic journalists & journalism should not ignite the fire of religious differences .Icant stop a serene action bcoz of some wrong deeds!,” Amruta’s said in a tweet.
