WASHINGTON – The state of religious freedom in India is a matter of grave concern, with state elements torturing Muslims over the Citizenship Amendment Act based on religious discrimination. The US Commission on Religious Freedom has released its annual report on the state of religious freedom in India, according to which the direction of religious freedom in India remained negative in 2020.

The report said that the promotion of Hindu nationalist policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) continues to violate religious freedom. According to the commission report, state and non-state elements tortured Muslims under the Religious Discrimination Citizenship Amendment Act, and Hindu extremists’ violence and police aggression against Muslims was apparently a deliberate conspiracy.

The US report said that the Modi government was using controversial citizenship laws as a weapon against Muslims and the opposition, and that preventing interfaith marriages based on false statements of forced conversions encouraged violence. According to the report, the Indian parliament imposed further sanctions on organizations working for religious freedom and human rights, forcing the government to freeze bank accounts, forcing Amnesty International to close its offices in India. Minorities were targeted through hate speech.

The US report says the government’s acquittal of all Babri Masjid accused and its silence on religious violence has encouraged hatred and violence in India, with the Modi government’s continued crackdown on opposition and dissidents a cause for concern. According to the report, Hindu nationalist groups carried out barbaric attacks on Muslim homes, mosques, and businesses without fear.

The US Commission on International Religious Freedom has suggested that India be given the status of a country of concern and that sanctions be imposed on those who violate religious freedom in India.
