Persecution by Modi govt forces alarming number of Indians to seek asylum in US

By The Express Tribune

Out of hundreds of detainees at the federal prison in Victorville California, some 40 per cent were found to have travelled from India seeking asylum.

One of their representatives told US Representative for California Mark Takano that they were forced to seek refuge following persecution by India’s ruling party Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP), The Los Angeles Times reported.

“They said they were often bullied into doing things that were immoral. They would have to carry drugs, perpetrate violence against others,” said Takano.
