He has said that India should take necessary steps to get the Kashmiris their rights. Joe Biden also expressed disappointment over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the implementation of NRC in Assam.
The policy paper published on Joe Biden’s campaign website titled ‘Agenda for the Muslim American Community’ states that steps like citizenship (amendment law) and NRC are against the long tradition of multiculturalism and secularism in Indian democracy.
A group of Hindu-Americans have expressed their opposition to the language against India in Biden’s campaign and asked to reconsider it. The group has also demanded a similar policy paper for Hindu-Americans. However, no answer has been received from Biden campaign on these questions.
The policy paper states that Biden understands the pain of Muslim-Americans about developments in Muslim countries and countries with Muslim populations. In this document, Kashmir and Assam have also been kept along with Detention Camp to the Vegar Muslims of China. It also mentions discrimination and oppression happening against the Rohingya Muslim minorities in Myanmar.

Biden’s supporter Ajay Jain Bhatoria told news agency PTI that Biden has been seen as a friend of India during Barack Obama’s 8-year presidential term as a US lawmaker and former president. He has a similar image among Indian-Americans. Biden also played an important role in the Indo-US nuclear deal. Biden used to organize Diwali celebrations at his residence when he was vice-president.

Bhatoria said, “There are certain groups of elected officials in the US who spread misinformation about Kashmir and India. Recently, the US blocked the H-1B visa policy related to migrants, which raised questions about Should go. India also has the right to set its own migrant policy. I have grown up in Assam and I have seen a swarm of people coming from across the border. They are snatching the resources and jobs of North-East Indians. “
