American official International Religious Freedom Commission expressed concern over the situation of Muslims in India

A top official of the International Religious Freedom Commission, an organization that monitors religious freedom around the world, has said that the United States has seen unfortunate reports related to the persecution and rhetoric of Muslims in India. US Ambassador to the International Religious Freedom Commission, Sam Brownback, said that due to fake news and misinformation on social media, there has been increased malfeasance against Muslims in India. However, the US Ambassador appreciated the appeal of senior officials of India to maintain unity in the era of Corona virus epidemic.

Brownback was speaking to reporters on Thursday about the impact of the Corona virus on religious minorities around the world. He said, ‘We have seen news related to rhetoric and harassment against Kovid-19 in India, especially against the Muslim community. Many such incidents have come up in which Muslims were attacked by accusing them of spreading corona virus infection. The American official said, however, our confidence in India has increased due to the statements related to the appeal of unity by senior officials of India. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also said that Kovid-19 does not see religion, language, boundary, which is absolutely right.

India has dismissed the social media posts harassing Muslims for the outbreak of Corona virus and termed it as ‘propaganda’. External Affairs Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava said last month, most of what you have seen is propaganda to serve his interests. By picking up any tweet, we cannot define our bilateral relations with these countries. His statement came at a time when many human rights activists and celebrities from Arab countries had tweeted and alleged that Muslims are being held responsible for spreading the Kovid-19 epidemic in India.

The American official also expressed concern over the situation of minorities in Pakistan, China and Sri Lanka and said that there are extremely difficult conditions for minorities in these countries. He said that the problem of minorities can be divided into five parts. One – governments themselves are engaged in suppressing religious minorities, second they are discriminated against in health services, third is targeting minorities through rumors and fake news such as blaming them for spreading corona virus. Fourthly, the presence of inflammatory speeches on social media and lastly – the use of technology for the suppression, discrimination and surveillance of minorities.

He said that in the case of religious minorities, the example of Christian scavengers in Pakistan can be taken. He said, because most of the scavengers in Pakistan are Christians, the danger of their being infected during cleaning in hospitals should not be ignored. The government should provide personal protective equipment to these scavengers.

Brownback said, even when there was a strict lockdown caused by the Corona virus in China, China sent 10 lakh policemen to Tibet to run the campaign. Strictly applied to Tibetans during the epidemic. Not only this, Uygar Muslims were forced to work despite the threat of the Corna virus.
