Experts from seventeen leading global human rights watchdogs and interfaith organizations including Amnesty International USA and Genocide Watch have severely criticized Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s failure to condemn and act against anti-Muslim bigotry.

During a congressional briefing in Washington, they warned that Modi’s Islamophobic policies and tolerance of open incitement by Hindu extremists for genocide of Muslims are pushing India towards mass violence and massacre of Muslims.

The experts said that as the leader of India, Modi has an obligation to denounce genocidal speeches, but he used anti-Muslim and Islamophobic rhetoric to build his political base.
