Ruling party MP introduced anti-India resolution in US Parliament
Washington, June 24 (US). Amidst all the claims of strong relations between India and America, Ilhan Omar, the MP of America’s ruling Democratic Party, has introduced an anti-India resolution in the US Parliament. However, it is believed that this motion will not be passed.
Ilhan Omar, the ruling Democratic Party’s MP in the House of Representatives, the lower house of the US Parliament, has once again shown anti-India attitudes. He has accused India of violating religious freedom. Omar has moved a resolution in the House of Representatives asking the US Secretary of State to declare India as a country of particular concern.
A joint resolution by lawmakers Rashida Talib and Juan Vargas also called on the Biden administration to implement the recommendations of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom. This commission recommended for declaring India as a country of special concern for three consecutive years. This proposal of Omar, Talib and Vargas has been sent to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the lower house of the US Parliament for necessary action. However, Parliament is not expected to pass this resolution.
It is believed that the pro-India camp is very strong in the Parliament. MP Ulhan Umar has been openly supporting Pakistan in the past as well. Omar has also taken an anti-India stand in many hearings related to India.
