US USCIRF On Religious Freedom: Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Chief of the US Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), has once again accused the world’s largest democratic country of religious discrimination against India. He said that religious discrimination in India has reached appalling levels. This is not the first time that USCIRF chief Rabbi Abraham Cooper has presented a report on religious discrimination in India.
India placed in the category of Tier 2 country in 2019
2 years before today i.e. in 2020 also USCIRF presented a report, under which they listed India in the category of Country of Particular Concern. He placed India in the category of countries like China, North Korea, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Whereas, according to a report of the year 2019, India was placed in the category of Tier 2 country by USCIRF.
This was the first time after the year 2004, when India was placed in the category of Tier 2 country in the year 2019. USCIRF had suggested strict action against India under the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA).
Recommendation to ban Indian agencies and officials
This time USCIRF has gone a step further and recommended to keep India in the list of religious discrimination along with Afghanistan, Syria, Nigeria and Vietnam. He has recommended a ban on Indian agencies and officials from economic things to traveling.
