India has said that the comments made by United States Commission on International Religious Freedom on the violence in northeast Delhi are factually inaccurate and misleading. The Ministry of External Affairs in a statement, said, comments by the US panel appear to be aimed at politicising the issue. Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar added, that law enforcement agencies are working on the ground to prevent violence and ensure restoration of confidence and normalcy. The Prime Minister has also publicly appealed for peace and brotherhood. He urged that irresponsible comments not be made at such a sensitive time. Amid reports of attack on Muslims, the USCIRF on Wednesday said, the Indian government should provide protection to people regardless of their faith.
