Foreign Policy Watch: India-United States

Talking to India on religious freedom, says U.S

  2. News: United States has expressed its disappointment over India’s move
  3. Reason: India sees no locus standi of USCIRF on the issue, as religious freedom is enshrined in the Indian Constitution
  4. India has also questioned the role of foreign entities to comment on the state of Indian citizens’ constitutionally protected rights
