Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, while addressing the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, said cows are more safe in India than Muslims, said reports.

Tharoor said that intolerance is affecting the national security of India.

How can you promote Make in India abroad, while having 'hate in India' at home, asked the parliamentarian from Kerala.

Tharoor added that India's image is tarnished as even foreign media were discussing about the rising intolerance in the country.

Meanwhile, NCP leader Supriya Sule said that a divided India is coming to the fore instead of a developed India.
