Minister of External Affairs has responded to the comments made by USCIRF regarding Delhi Violence.
In a statement issued to ANI, MEA has said that they have seen comments made by United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), sections of media & a few individuals on recent incidents of violence in Delhi. These are factually inaccurate and misleading, and appear to be aimed at politicising the issue.
“Our law enforcement agencies are working on the ground to prevent violence and ensure restoration of confidence and normalcy. Senior representatives of the Government have been involved in that process.”
MEA has urged that irresponsible comments are not made at such sensitive times
Earlier, US embassy issues security advisory: “U.S. citizens in India should exercise caution in light of violent demonstrations in Northeast Delhi and avoid all areas with demonstrations”.
