Question: India has given double blow to Israel, how do you see it?

Khairnar: This is a big threat to India’s internal security. A rift has been created in India between Hindus and Muslims for the past 25 years. People sitting in the current government has gained power through hatred.By raising Babri Masjid issue, it had started to polarize the country. The same problem is with the Jerusalem. For India, Ayodhya is a disputed issue but for the world Jerusalem is Ayodhya. It may be said that India’s Jerusalem is Ayodhya, while the world’s Jerusalem is Baitul Maqaddis.
Question: How do you see the India-Israel military relations?

Question: How do you see the friendship of Modi and Netanyahu?
Khairnar: There are many such communal faces in the world including Donald Trump in America, Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel and Narendra Modi in India.They are threat to the peace of the country and the world.
