Upendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | June 23, 2019:: India on Sunday rejected a US religious freedom report, saying it sees no locus standi for a foreign government to pronounce on the state of its citizens’ constitutionally protected rights.
The India Chapter+ of “2018 Report on International Religious Freedom+” as published on 21 June bu US Department of State is a glaring example of highlighting the Islamic cacophony for alleged violation of Muslim Rights ignoring all Jihadi attitudes adopted by those people of fake peace.
In its annual 2018 International Religious Freedom Report , the State Department alleged on Friday that mob attacks by violent extremist Hindu groups against minority communities, particularly Muslims, continued in India in 2018, amid rumours that victims had traded or killed cows for beef.
Responding to media queries on the report, ministry of external affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar 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, he said.
It is widely acknowledged that India is a vibrant democracy where the Constitution provides protection of religious freedom, and where democratic governance and rule of law further promote and protect fundamental rights, Kumar asserted.
“We see no locus standi for a foreign entity/government to pronounce on the state of our citizens’ constitutionally protected rights,” he said.
Mandated by the Congress, the state department in its voluminous report gives its assessment of the status of religious freedom in almost all the countries and territories of the world.
Releasing the report at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the state department, secretary of state Mike Pompeo last week said the report was like a report card which tracks countries to see how well they have respected this fundamental human right.
Fully disagreeing the report, eminent Hind interlocutor and HinduExistence Web Editor, Upananda Brahmachari told HENB, “Though US President Trump is a good friend of Indian PM Modi, the anti-Indian and anti-Hindu elements in Trump administration are very active to defame the reputations of Indians and dignity of Hindus. ‘US religious freedom report’ is no way acceptable in Indian perspective and it must be reviewed in a backdrop of upsurging Islamic fundamentalism in India”.
