On February 25, 2004, US Secretary of State Colin Powell presented the “The Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” This report is submitted annually by the U.S. Department of State to the U.S. Congress. The reports cover internationally recognized individual, civil, political, and worker rights, as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The report has sections devoted to the countries of India, and Pakistan.

I would love to read a similar report on the United States of America though… Anybody can help me with a link to that ?

  1. Although the law provides for religious freedom, enforcement of the law was poor, particularly at the state and local levels, where the failure to deal adequately with intragroup and intergroup conflict abridged constitutional protections.

    The leading party in the government coalition is the BJP, a Hindu nationalist political party with links to Hindu extremist groups that were implicated in violent acts against Christians and Muslims….

    …There were reports that members of the BJP, the RSS, and other affiliated organizations harassed and at times threatened the use of violence against Christians and Muslims. The BJP and RSS officially expressed respect and tolerance for other religions; however, the RSS in particular opposes conversions from Hinduism and believes that all citizens should adhere to Hindu cultural values.

    The US is the most hypocratic nation I’ve ever seen. It “tolerates” conversion to christianity, but discourages opposition to conversion! All these Human Rights documents of US are basically crap – they’re sexed up to place countries like India on a perennially defensive position.

    Yeah, I would love to see America’s report too.
