The Indian Administration has slammed the US state department’s 2018 International Religious Freedom report that alleged that some senior leaders of the BJP made inflammatory speeches against minority communities.
The Center has rejected the report that covers government policies violating religious belief and practices of groups, religious denominations and individuals, and US policies to promote religious freedom around the world.
MEA official Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in his statement to Media said, “India is proud of its secular credentials, its status as the largest democracy and a pluralistic society with a longstanding commitment to tolerance and inclusion. The Indian Constitution guarantees fundamental rights to all its citizens, including its minority communities.”
While reacting to the report BJP media head and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni also slammed the report and called it bias.He said, the US state department’s 2018 International Religious Freedom report shows clear bias against the Narendra Modi government.
