Indian-American Ambassador on International Religious Freedom Rashad Hussain has expressed the great danger of genocide in India. He has expressed concern while expressing his opinion about the many incidents and statements issued in India. Speaking before a US Committee on Religious Freedom in India, Hussain said the Early Warning Project linked to the Holocaust Museum has placed India at number two in the list of countries most at risk of mass killings.
Hussain said on Thursday that the rights of religious minorities in India are at risk and the US is directly conveying its concerns to India in this regard. Hussain also referred to the Citizenship Amendment Act and open calls for genocide. Hussain told the committee that we have seen cases like attacks on churches and hijab ban in India. He also said that a minister even called Muslims in India termites. Earlier, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, while releasing the report on religious freedom, had expressed some controversial things along with expressing concern about India, to which the Indian Foreign Ministry had objected. The report also raised concerns about the growing threat of attacks on shrines in India.
The rights of all will have to be protected

The world's largest democracy is a country where, like America, we want to make sure that we live up to the values that ensure equal participation of all people.
