Andy Levin as panelists the virtual discussion was held on 15th of July by Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), a non-profit organization based in Washington, Dc. it primarily voices for human rights, religious freedom, and civil liberties in both the United States and India.
U.S. Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) raised his concern about the Indian Government’s commitment to protecting the rights of minorities. “The government's targeting of social and political activities and crackdown on free speech and their religiously motivated discrimination against minorities cannot be viewed in isolation as escalating nationalism threatens to undermine India's longstanding oath to democratic values. I will continue to stand up for these principles in the United States Senate, and I will encourage India to do the same.”
