"We have come out to save this country from forces (who are dividing the country on the basis of religion) and not to save this state only," he said. Farooq said we have to live in this country and strengthen it and its secular ethos which was preached by Mahatma Gandhi. He asked the Congress candidates to keep an eye on forces about malpractice.
