WASHINGTON, D.C., April 30, 2001: The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said that India, while generally respecting religious freedom, may not be doing all that it could to prevent violence against minority religions. The commission singled out China for its most severe criticism, but, in addition to India, criticized Indonesia, Russia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iran, Sudan, Vietnam and North Korea of either directly violating religious freedoms, permitting local or regional governments to restrict freedoms or ignoring intercommunity violence. This article doesn't mention it, but the commission has mainly voiced concern about the freedom of Christians in other countries, especially where Christians are restricted in their proselytization efforts. It is considered by some Americans as contrary to the Constitution's intention of separation of church and state.
