“I stand by those who have protested for their rights.”

“They have the right to protest and they have the right to disagree, that’s what a democracy is all about,” he said.

“There has to be a basis in every society that there is no supremacy of one faith or ethnic group over another.”

That’s what a democracy is all about, equality before the law irrespective of your ethnicity of your faith.”
