The members of U.S. Congress expressed their concerns about religious repression in India during the Indian American Muslim Council’s panel discussion at the International Religious Freedom summit.

U.S. Senato, Ed Markey said, “I remain seriously concerned about the Indian government’s commitment to protecting the rights of minorities, including the 200 million Muslims in India.”

“The government’s targeting of social and political activities and crackdown on free speech and their religiously motivated discrimination against minorities cannot be viewed in isolation as escalating nationalism threatens to undermine India’s longstanding oath to democratic values. I will continue to stand up for these principles in the United States Senate, and I will encourage India to do the same.”
