USCIRF’s Criticism of India: Ill- informed and Prejudiced is a report published by the India Foundation is a rejoinder to the 2011 report of the United States Commission for International Religious Freedom. Upon a detailed reading of the 2011 report of the USCIRF as regards India, it was found that the Commission clearly singles out the BJP and the RSS as perpetrators of communal violence, especially against religious minorities. It was found that the Commission seemed to have glossed over many other riots, including those of the Congress party workers against the Sikh community, in addition to stating erroneous statistics, which seemed to be shockingly cavalier.
With inputs from P.N. Benjamin, Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman and Lakshmi Kanta Das, this report written by researchers at India Foundation in February 2012, was a comprehensive point to point rejoinder to every detail in USCIRF’s report, in addition to exposing the bias in favor of certain political groups that the USCRIF tends to betray.
