Kottayam: Kerala is a peaceful state and Karnataka has been witnessing attacks on minorities, said chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan in reply to the comments of union home minister Amit Shah against the state.

“Minority communities are being attacked all across Karnataka. Is there any such situation in Kerala? Shouldn’t Amit Shah be advising the Karnataka government to emulate this? What did he find wrong with Kerala? He said he was not commenting much on Kerala. Why stop there? Speak up, we are listening,” said Pinarayi on Saturday. He was inaugurating the area committee office of CPM at Vazhoor here.

On Saturday, Amit Shah had said that only BJP could save Karnataka from anti-nationals. He was talking about the ban on the Popular Front of India. "There is Kerala in your neighbourhood. I will not speak further. Only the BJP under Modi can protect Karnataka," Shah said.
