Washington: A group of eminent Indian-Americans has expressed unhappiness over the latest annual report of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, alleging that it is biased against India. The report recommended that President Joe Biden’s administration list India, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and 11 other countries as “countries of particular concern” regarding religious freedom status. However, the US government is not bound to accept this recommendation. Khanderao Kand, a member of the Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies (FIIDS), US-based policy research and awareness institute, alleged that the USCIRF report on India was biased.
“India’s Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) is a law that gives citizenship to refugees who have been religiously persecuted from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh, but instead of believing this, it was shown as taking away the citizenship of the people. Khanderao said that similarly it has not been mentioned in the report that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is being implemented by the order of the Court of India and it is common in democratic countries. Jeevan Zutshi, a founding member of the Global Kashmiri Pandit Diaspora (GKPD), said, “It is disappointing that the report only referred to Muslims from Kashmir but ignored The Kashmiri Pandit Hindus, who have been victims of their terror. It did not mention that the situation has returned to normal after the abrogation of Article 370. ‘
Sukhi Chahal, editor-in-chief of Khalsa Today in California, said, “Some anti-India forces and Khalistani elements abroad had openly announced a reward in US dollars for creating hurdles in India through farmers’ protests. Instead of assuming that Khalistani terrorists had infiltrated the farmers’ agitation, the report incorrectly shows that the government insulted all Sikh farmer protesters by calling them terrorists. ‘ input-language
