The United States of America is concerned at open calls being made for a genocide of Indian Muslims, US Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom Rashad Hussain has said.
Dehumanizing rhetoric was escalating the persecution of India’s minorities, creating a challenge for the United States, Ambassador Hussain said at the three-day International Religious Freedom (IRF) Summit being held in the US capital. “We’ve had open calls for [a] genocide [of Muslims] in India.
We’ve had demolitions of [Muslim] homes,” Hussain said at a panel discussion on Religious Freedom in India: Challenges for the US, organized by the Indian Working Group of the International Religious Freedom Roundtable. NNI
