Let's defend religious freedom for all: Pompeo on India visit

Jun 26, 2019 21:48 IST

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is on a two-day tour of India, has said that US and India should "stand up for religious freedom". Pompeo's remarks come in the backdrop of a recently-released US State Department report that says that mob attacks by violent extremist groups against the minority communities, particularly Muslims, are continuing in India. "India is the birthplace of four major world religions. Let's stand up together in defence of religious freedom for all, let us speak out in favour of those rights, for whenever we do compromise those rights, the world is worse off," said Mike Pompeo.
