Former Vice President of India, Hamid Ansari is back in the news after he walked out from an interview with a private channel recently over displeasure of the nature of questions thrown at him by the journalist. In conversation to promote his latest book, ‘By Many A Happy Accident’, Ansari desperately tried to dodge the question of why he thinks the Muslims of the country are restless and insecure. Calling out the interviewer for his unfavourable mentality, the former VP is however unable to give a clear understanding of his claims about his community.

At one point, the news anchor brings up mob lynching, which Ansari eventually admits is a law and order issue when he is schooled by the former about Hindus also having been victims of the same in states like West Bengal and Kerala.

The reporter also called out the former diplomat for being so ungrateful to a country that has given him so many important positions including that of the vice president, ex-vice chancellor of the Aligarh Muslim University and a permanent representative in the United Nations.

Ansari was India’s VP between 2007-2017. On his last day in office, he raked a controversy by talking about the Islamic population of India being at a lack of ease. However, during his interview, when he was asked if he as a Muslim himself feels insecure in his own land, he said no, though he continued to insist without much justification that the minority population on a whole feels that way.
