India rejects US international religious freedom report

India today said, it is proud of its secular credentials, its status as the largest democracy and pluralistic society with a longstanding commitment to tolerance and inclusion.

To a query on the latest report on International Religious Freedom published by the US State Department, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, the Indian Constitution guarantees fundamental rights to all its citizens including minority communities.

He said, it is widely acknowledged that India is a vibrant democracy where the Constitution provides protection of religious freedom, and where democratic governance and rule of law further promote and protect the fundamental rights.

Mr Kumar said, India sees no locus standi for a foreign entity or government to pronounce on the state of its citizens constitutionally protected rights.

Talking to newspersons, BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain termed the US report as meaningless and absurd
