US Media Report terms Indian government actions as shameful

Leading international daily the Washington Post has termed the closure of Amnesty International in India as a shameful blow to human rights and free speech in the country.

In an article, the paper writes that targeting of the global rights watchdog is part of sustained efforts to transform India into a fascist state by suppressing dissent.

The paper opines that by attacking Amnesty International, the Modi led BJP government has actually tried to distract the attention of people from its failure of handling COVID-19 crisis that has resulted in rampant unemployment and poverty.
