USCIRF condemns Delhi violence

USCIRF condemns Delhi violence

Washington, Feb 27 (UNI) The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has expressed deep concern over the ongoing violence in Delhi.

Amid the visit of US President Donald Trump, northeastern Delhi has been rocked by deadly riots and violence. So far, more than 20 people have been killed in the violence and close to 200 injured.

According to reports, several places of worship have also been set alight or vandalised. This unrest comes in the wake of widespread protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act following its passage in December 2019.

“The brutal and unchecked violence growing across Delhi cannot continue,” said USCIRF Commissioner Anurima Bhargava. “The Indian government must take swift action to ensure the safety of all of its citizens.

In its 2019 Annual Report, USCIRF classified India as a “Tier 2” country for engaging in or tolerating religious freedom violations that meet at least one of the elements of the “systematic, ongoing, egregious standard for designations as a “country of particular concern,” or CPC, under the International Religious Freedom Act.
