A group of 68 bipartisan members of the US Congress headed by Raja Krishnamoorthi, the Indian-American US Congress member has insisted upon the US administration led by Donald Trump to take measures to prevent the incidents of hate crimes against the Indian-Americans and religious minorities in the US.
They have urged in a letter to John Kelly, the Homeland Security Secretary to take measures and utilize the resources of his department to fight against the root causes and the incidents of hate crimes, quotes the Indian Express.
The 68 member bipartisan group of the US Congress members was quoted in the letter as saying that the recent hike in the incidents of hate crimes as also the grave desecration at Jewish cemeteries and attacks on Indian-Americans is worrisome to all the US nationals.
The letter initiated by Raja Krishnamoorthi included amongst other signatories the Indian-American members of the US Congress Ami Bera, Pramila Jayapal, and Ro Khanna.
The letter further elaborated that the attacks motivated by racialism not only undermine the fundamental American exceptionalism but also the safety of the public as well. The US has stood as the guiding light of freedom from persecution, oppression, and tyranny for more than 200 years, added the letter.
The fundamental assurance in the US is that every individual irrespective of the religion and race can have the faith of being protected, preserved and defending of the rights by the federal government, elaborated the letter of the US Congress members.
The letter also urged the US Department of Homeland Security to utilize its complete powers in preventing hate crime attacks motivated by race in the future and fight against the roots of intolerance and hatred.
