Assuring safety and security of all citizens cutting across the caste and religion, the Chief Justice of India TS Thakur on Sunday said that there is no intolerance towards any community in the country and it would never happen till rule of law and judiciary is there to protect their interests.

 Justice Thakur, who has recently been appointed as 43 CJI said that there are some politics involved in the ongoing debate on intolerance and he did not want to get involved in it.

 He, however, assured that no citizens would be victimized or thrown out of the country till judiciary is there and nobody should feel threatened. He said tolerance is the basic character of India when people from different culture and religion have come, settled and prospered in the country.

"I am heading an institution which protects constitutional rights of all citizens and also some time non-citizens. So long as rule of law id there and Judiciary is functioning, no one should feel threatened. We are capable to protect rights of all citizens cutting across caste, creed, religion," he said.
