Infosys founder Narayana Murthy has come out in support of writers and intellectuals who have returned their awards to the Modi government, following a perception of 'growing intolerance' against minorities.

"I am not a political person, I am not at all interested in politics. But I sense there is a considerable fear among minorities and migrants in this country", Murthy said to NDTV.

"Just as the Shiv Sena in Mumbai created fear amongst South Indians in the 1960s, now some elements are creating fear among both minorities and within communities", he added.
