The human rights violation has become a global issue and Amnesty International’s State of the World’s Human Rights Report 2016-17 has clear indication related to it.
The report also claimed that there have been a range of human rights violated in India.
The report targeted the government for utilizing the Foreign Currency (Regulation) Act (FCRA) and the sedition laws to control the NGOs and civil society organisations.
The report also claimed that human rights activists in India faced intimidation and attacks from both state and non-state actors.
It also has a sub-section on India titled ‘Caste-based discrimination and violence’, where it claimed that Indian Dalits and Adivasis continue to face widespread abuses, highlighting the suicide of Dalit student Rohith Vemula.
