Obama, who calls himself a defender of human rights, has brought up the concern of the safety of religious minorities in India.
The same Barack Hussain Obama was the president of the United States when tens of thousands of innocent people were killed in Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya.
"If I were to speak with Prime Minister Modi, whom I know well, I would advise him to do so if he does not uphold the rights of ethnic minorities in India it's probable that India's divisions will get worse in the future. This will not be in India's best interests.
The safety of Muslim minority in India, which has a Hindu majority, is important, he claimed.
Obama stated that it is crucial to bring up the protection of the Muslim minority in a predominantly Hindu India if President Joe Biden meets with Prime Minister Modi.
The former president (Obama) need to focus more of his time on praising India than on criticizing it. The most varied nation in human history is India.
The largest democracy in the world is not flawless, just like the United States, but its variety is its strength, and we should be praising it wherever we can, whenever we can, Moore, former commissioner of USCIRF, said in an interview with ANI.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was defended by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman from criticism over how Muslims are treated in India.
She also questioned how will anyone believe his accusations when six nations with a majority of Muslims have been blasted with more than 26,000 bombs during his Presidency.
She criticised former US President Barack Obama for his comments regarding Indian Muslims because the US had "bombed six Muslim-majority nations" and charged that the Congress and other opposition parties had raised "non-issues, without data" in response to electoral failures.
Additionally, she stated, "The Honorable Prime Minister himself has stated how his government operates under the 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas' idea and does not discriminate against any community. However, the truth is that when people participate in this discussion and highlight issues that are not really issues”.
She also stated that six of the 13 honours he received while serving as prime minister came from nations with a mainly Muslim population which itself defines that Muslims are important to him.
Before Ms. Sitharaman, the BJP's Himanta Biswa Sarma who is the Chief Minister of Assam also criticised Mr. Obama for his remarks, saying that his state police "should prioritise taking care of" the numerous "Hussain Obama's" in India, emphasising the former US President's middle name which shows his Muslim ancestry.
