MEA Official Spokesperson on media reports on move by USCIR


New Delhi
August 13, 2009

In response to a question on media reports about an India related move by US Commission on International Religious Freedom, the Official Spokesperson said, 

“India, a country of 1.1 billion people, is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious society. The Constitution of India guarantees freedom of religion and equality of opportunity, to all its citizens, who live and work together in peace and harmony. Aberrations, if any, are dealt with promptly within our legal framework, under the watchful eye of an independent judiciary and a vigilant media. 

The reported move referred to in the news reports is regrettable.”
