U.S. Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders slammed the Trump administration's inaction to deadly mob violence against Muslims in India.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
"Over 200 million Muslims call India home. Widespread anti-Muslim mob violence has killed at least 27 and injured many more," tweeted the Vermont senator late Wednesday.
"Trump responds by saying, ‘That's up to India.’ This is a failure of leadership on human rights," he added.
B.L. Santosh, national general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Pary that rules India, lost no time criticizing Sanders and hinted the BJP could interfere in U.S. presidential elections if support messages to Muslims in India continue.
"How much ever neutral we wish to be, you compel us to play a role in Presidential elections. Sorry to say so… but you are compelling us," he tweeted only to delete it later.
