The Citizenship Modification Act passed in 2015 by India violates spiritual flexibility, particularly targeting the Muslim neighborhood, stated the US Commission on International Spiritual Flexibility in its yearly report launched Tuesday.

The ranking was available in the yearly report of the body charged with keeping track of spiritual flexibility abroad and the US federal government’s reaction to them.

The questionable Citizenship Modification Act (CAA) offers Hindus and spiritual minorities from surrounding countries– consisting of Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan– a fast track to citizenship, it omits Muslims.

The commission advised that the State Department designate India as a “country of particular concern,” or CPC, since it “tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom.” It revealed the main federal government’s participation in quelching spiritual flexibility and, obviously, the effect of that can effectively be millions of Muslims in deportation, statelessness and detention when the federal government finishes its organized national register of people,” stated the USCIRF Vice Chair Nadine Maenza.

The 104- page report narrated the development and failures on spiritual flexibility in 29 countries throughout 2019.

Federal Minister for Person Rights Shireen Mazari weighing responded to the report and stated: “Finally even US cannot ignore the reality of the racist Hindutva Supremacist creed of the Indian govt. India declared a Country of Particular Concern for the first time by the US Commission of International Religious Freedom.”
