“The glaring exclusion of India, where the RSS-BJP system and their chiefs straightforwardly ignore religious opportunity and oppress minority networks in a regulated way is shocking and puts the validity of the US report into question”.
“its a well known fact that assaults by dairy animals vigilantes and crowd lynchings of Indian Muslims occur consistently, with complete exemption for the culprits. Orderly belittling, dispossession, minimization and focused on brutality against Muslims using the shared slur of ‘adoration jihad’ in Hindutva-motivated India has gotten ordinary”.
The FO additionally called attention to that the US Department of State has totally overlooked the discoveries and recommendations of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom and US Congressional hearings on the evil treatment of minorities in India and the infringement of religious opportunity the whole way across the nation.
