India is an excessive example of the use of religion: Kapil Sibal

People have been living in fear of investigating agencies, the state, and the police, says former Congress leader and senior lawyer Kapil Sibal.
Talking about the “use of religion as a weapon”, he said that even though it was happening all over the world, “India is an excessive example of the use of religion.”
“It’s happening all over the world. It was complete intolerance what happened in Leicester. We all know what happened there. So, it’s being exported now.
“The real problem is, in India today those who are part of the hate speech are the collaborators of a particular ideology, the police are not willing to do anything,” Mr. Sibal said. The former Cabinet minister was speaking at the launch of his book, Reflections: In Rhyme and Rhythm, published by Rupa Publications.
