MEA has vehemently denounced the recent report on international religious freedom in India released by the US State Department. The MEA labeled the report as “deeply biased” and accused it of failing to comprehend the intricate social dynamics of the nation. Furthermore, the ministry alleged that the report’s findings were influenced by “votebank considerations,” implying that the US government’s stance was motivated by political gains in light of the upcoming presidential elections. The MEA firmly rejected the notion that the report accurately reflects the state of religious freedom in India.
