Anti-minority bias has seeped into India’s government policies, says HRW



Anti-minority bias in India has spread to the courts and the police, Human Rights Watch said Friday, amid months-long protests by farmers that authorities vilify and brand as Sikh separatist demonstrations.


The watchdog said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government had adopted policies that systematically discriminate against minorities in the country of 1.34 billion people.


In a statement, issued ahead of the first anniversary of the Delhi communal riots, HRW said the authorities had not conducted fair probe into the riots instigated allegedly by ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders
