A US government commission has cited India for having “perhaps the steepest & most alarming deterioration in religious freedom conditions” in the world. US agencies, including Trump & the White House, are making a big splash of unfollowing Modi & Indian government agencies on Twitter. This commission report can be used to build solidarity with India’s 200 million Muslims who are facing extremes of persecution but, with its several wars & involvement in genocide in Palestine & Kashmir, the US is hardly an arbiter of human rights anywhere in the world. We would know the US means business if it severs its multi-billion dollar trade & military contracts with India & that eventuality is a pipe dream without considerable political pressure.
