In addition, the United States has placed Algeria, the Comoros, Cuba and Nicaragua on a special watch list for serious violations of religious freedom.</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/nahaltoosi/status/1460987341112233992" rel="nofollow">https://twitter.com/nahaltoosi/status/146098734112233992</a></p>  <p>Despite the US Commission on Religious Freedom's recommendation, many are questioning India's inclusion in the CPC list.</p> <p>Nahal Toussaint, a senior Politico foreign affairs journalist, tweeted: "Despite growing violence against Muslims in India, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has decided to exclude India from the CPC's list of 'special concern countries' for religious freedom." . "</p> <p>On the other hand, the US Commission on Religious Freedom had requested that India be included in the list.  But the Biden administration sees India as an important partner, and in the case of China, India's importance to the United States has increased.  The Biden administration has said that human rights will remain central to its foreign policy, but this is another example of its abandonment.</p>   <p>The Indian-American Muslim Council has criticized US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken for not including India in the CPC list.  The Indian-American Muslim Council tweeted, "IAMC condemns Blinken's decision to exclude India from CPC list of violations of religious freedom, despite US Commission's recommendation to include India in the list."

The Biden administration is encouraging the Narendra Modi government to attack religious minorities in India.</p>  <p><a href="https://twitter.com/SecBlinken/status/1460993184352423937" rel="nofollow">https://twitter.com/SecBlinken/status/1460993184352423937</a></p> <p>Releasing the list, Blinken said the United States is committed to advocating freedom of religion in every country.  We have seen that in many countries around the world, governments are harassed, arrested, imprisoned, beaten, and harassed for living up to their beliefs.</p> <p>Blinken said the administration supports the right of every person to freedom of religion.  The US Commission on International Religious Freedom has expressed surprise that India was not included in the list.</p> <p>The commission also made suggestions from some other countries that were not included in the list by the Biden administration.</p>  <div class="big_center_img" data-cl-cnt="1" data-cnt-t="1" data-gal-src="https://hindi.oneindia.com/img/bbc/2021/11/_121598988_2b12e70c-6ad1-4bb3-90cc-7064d1e089d5.jpg"> <div> <figure><img src="https://hindi.oneindia.com/img/bbc/2021/11/_121598988_2b12e70c-6ad1-4bb3-90cc-7064d1e089d5.jpg" class="image_listical c1" alt="Indo-Muslim" title="Indo-Muslim" data-cl-slideshow="" data-cl-title = "India-Muslim" data-cl-description = "" data-cl-imageid = "649188-1""/> <p>Getty Images</p> </figure> </div> <p>Indo-Muslim</p> </div> <p>"Following the assessment of religious freedom in 2020, the names of four countries for the CPC list were suggested to the Ministry of External Affairs, including India, Russia, Syria and Vietnam, except Russia," the commission said in a statement.  None of these countries were on the list.</p>  <p>The Citizenship Amendment Act was one of the most important points on which the Commission expressed concern about India.  "During the Delhi riots, the Hindu mob was given a clean chit and excessive force was used against the Muslims," ​​the commission's report said.</p>  <p>However, the US administration is not bound to accept the commission's recommendations.</p>  <div class="big_center_img" data-cl-cnt="2" data-cnt-t="2" data-gal-src="https://hindi.oneindia.com/img/bbc/2021/11/_121598781_gettyimages-1234264636.jpg"> <div> <figure><img src="https://hindi.oneindia.com/img/bbc/2021/11/_121598781_gettyimages-1234264636.jpg" class="image_listical c1" alt="Indo-Muslim" title="Indo-Muslim" data-cl-slideshow="" data-cl-title = "India-Muslim" data-cl-description = "" data-cl-imageid = "649188-2""/> <p>Getty Images</p> </figure> </div> <p>Indo-Muslim</p> </div>  <p>In April this year, for the second year in a row, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a US panel assessing religious freedom, suggested that India be given "world status" for the most violations of religious freedom in 2020. The name should be given.  'Special concern' i.e. CPC  Should be included in the list.</p> <p>The second suggestion was that the administration should promote equal rights for each community in inter-religious dialogue, bilateral and multilateral fora.</p> <p>In addition, the US Congress, through hearings, letters and the formation of delegations, repeatedly suggested raising this issue in US-India relations.</p> <p>However, the administration is not bound to accept the commission's recommendations.  The Trump administration last year rejected the USCIRF's recommendation to include India in the CPC list.  Similarly, this time the Biden administration has excluded India from the list.</p>  <p>The Citizenship Amendment Act is one of the most important issues raised by the Commission in its 2021 report.  The commission issues detailed reports each year on countries around the world where religious freedom is allegedly lacking or violated, and where religious minorities are discriminated against.</p> <p><strong>(You for BBC Hindi's Android app</strong> <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.bbc.hindi" rel="nofollow">Click here</a> <strong>Can do  You tell us</strong> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/bbchindi" rel="nofollow">Facebook</a><strong>,</strong> <a href="https://twitter.com/BBCHindi" rel="nofollow">Twitter</a><strong>,</strong> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/bbchindi/" rel="nofollow">Instagram</a> <strong>And</strong> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/bbchindi/" rel="nofollow">YouTube</a> <strong>You can follow too.)</strong></p> <noscript><img src="https://a1.api.bbc.co.uk/hit.xiti/?s=598346&p=hindi.international.story.59329668.page&x1=%5Burn%3Abbc%3Acps%3A623fc18b-2fc1-4145-8f86-ecd66754a319%5D&x4=%5Bhi%5D&x5=%5Bhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.com%2Fhindi%2Finternational-59329668%5D&x7=%5Barticle%5D&x8=%5Bsynd_nojs_ISAPI%5D&x9=%5B%E0%A4%85%E0%A4%AE%E0%A5%87%E0%A4%B0%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%95%E0%A4%BE+%E0%A4%A8%E0%A5%87+%E0%A4%AA%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%95%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%B8%E0%A5%8D%E0%A4%A4%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%A8+%E0%A4%95%E0%A5%8B+%E0%A4%A6%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%AF%E0%A4%BE+%E0%A4%9D%E0%A4%9F%E0%A4%95%E0%A4%BE%2C+%E0%A4%AD%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B0%E0%A4%A4+%E0%A4%AA%E0%A4%B0+%E0%A4%A6%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%96%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%88+%E0%A4%A8%E0%A4%B0%E0%A4%AE%E0%A5%80%5D&x11=%5B2021-11-18T06%3A52%3A27Z%5D&x12=%5B2021-11-18T06%3A52%3A27Z%5D&x19=%5Boneindia.com%5D"/></noscript> <div style="padding-bottom:7px;background: #cd1000;height: 15px; margin-bottom: 10px;width: 97%;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.bbchindi.com" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"><img src="https://hindi.oneindia.com/images/bbc-footer.png" border="0" alt="BBC Hindi" height="11" width="660"/></a></div>      <div class="notification-outerblock clearfix" id="notification-articleblock" style="display:none;"> <p>
