US commission seeks sanctions on Indian agencies over ‘violation’ of religious freedom

The recommendations of USCIRF are not mandatory for the State Department.

In its India section of the report, USCIRF alleged that in 2022, religious freedom conditions in India continued to worsen.

Throughout the year, the Indian government at the national, state, and local levels promoted and enforced religiously discriminatory policies, including laws targeting religious conversion, interfaith relationships, the wearing of hijabs, and cow slaughter, which negatively impact Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Dalits, and Adivasis (indigenous peoples and scheduled tribes).
