Cautioning India again on religious intolerance, U S President Barack Obama yesterday made a statement that in past years religious faiths at times have been targeted in the country due to their heritage and beliefs. It’s an act of intolerance that would have shocked Gandhiji. In his parting speech during India visit he had expressed the same view.
Obama’s statement has come as a distasteful remark and is set to start a debate by the civil society in India through social media, news channels and print media. Why did Barack do this after all the bonhomie with Modi?
