Washington, May 16 (KMS): A top American diplomat has said that the US has seen unfortunate reports of COVID-19 related “rhetoric and harassment” against the Muslim community in India.

Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, Sam Brownback, said this while briefing reporters during a conference call on the impact of COVID-19 on religious minorities throughout the world.

“In India, we have seen reports of unfortunate COVID-19-related rhetoric and harassment, particularly against the Muslim community. This has been exacerbated by fake news reports, misinformation being shared via social media. There have also been instances of Muslims being attacked for allegedly spreading the coronavirus,” Brownback said during a conference call.
