On Wednesday India hit back hard on the US Commission on International Religious Freedom for criticizing India based on erroneous report that in Ahmedabad COVID-19 patients are segregated on religious identities. In its utterings, the US Commission dismays India’s way of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic on the basis of a media report that a public-run hospital in the State capital discriminate Coronavirus patient on the religious lines. MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastav sighs that India is anyways vulnerably treading on the tight rope of religious discontentment and now the USCIRF is spreading mistaken reports on the professional medical protocols that are followed how to deal with Coronavirus spread in India.
"Such actions only help to further increase ongoing stigmatization of Muslims in #India and exacerbate false rumors of Muslims spreading #COVID19," the Commission tweeted.
Srivastav sternly insists that as the Gujarat government has clarified there is no exclusion of in the public-run hospital on the basis of religion.
