As far as I understand, the international community has a great deal of respect for the Republic of India, its history, its culture, and its people given the frequency at which Indian PM/presidents are given opportunities to address in their parliaments:
- Modi addresses the US Congress
- Modi addresses the British parliament
- Modi addresses the Australian parliament
- APJ Abdul Kalam addresses EU parliament
However, the Republic of India has many problems, including religious or communal divides and tensions that over the years have given rise to numerous communal riots and pogroms.
When someone tries to assess a country, these elements should also naturally come into consideration.
Did the USA or EU ever give out any statement about the communal riots and pogroms that take place in India on an almost yearly basis, some of which are purposefully designed to impress voters to win elections?
