Religious Freedom Watchdog Pitches Adding India to Blacklist

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is urging that the State Department add India to its list of nations with uniquely poor records on protecting freedom to worship. 

The bipartisan commission… proposed designating India as a “country of particular concern” in the annual report it released Tuesday. 

That lower ranking for a long-running U.S. ally amounts to a stark show of disapproval of India’s divisive new citizenship law, which has sparked broad worries about disenfranchisement of Muslims.
