For the second year in a row, USCIRF also recommended that India be designated as a CPC

For the second year in a row, USCIRF also recommended that India be designated as a CPC. The State Department elected not to make such a designation in 2020, though USCIRF argues that India is again deserving of the CPC label. The report names the government, led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as a primary aggressor in the promotion of “Hindu nationalist policies resulting in systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom.” These violations often take the form of immunity for mob violence against religious minorities and anti-conversion laws that prohibit religious conversions from the dominant Hindu religion.
