Blinken Must Urge Modi to Repeal Repressive Laws

While in New Delhi, Blinken should press Modi to repeal and amend laws that jeopardize human rights and to reform the overbroad legal frameworks that authorities have used to target activists, opposition leaders, and human rights defenders.

Blinken must underscore to Modi that the Indian government’s use of purportedly “anti-terrorist” laws to crush opposition and target activists undermines the strategic partnership with the United States. There is a political cost to the Modi government’s continued efforts to erode and abuse India’s political and legal institutions to violate human rights.
