New York, Jul 9 (IANS): Indian Minorities Foundation (IMF) and The Unity of Faiths Foundation, Bharat (TUFF Bharat) here organised a ‘Roundtable Meeting’ on inclusive growth and equal opportunities for all communities particularly minorities under Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Several religious leaders of minority communities from India participated in the event.

Besides others, the Roundtable Meeting was attended by Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) and IMF Convenor Satnam Singh Sandhu, IMF co-founder Prof Himani Sood and TUFF co-founders Anna Bornholt and Dr Shamender Talwar.

Religious leaders praised Prime Minister Modi for fostering peaceful coexistence among India’s diverse communities, noting the absence of significant Hindu-Muslim riots as a testament. They expressed satisfaction with India’s burgeoning economy and credited policies implemented under Prime Minister Narendra Modi for substantial poverty reduction, benefiting citizens from various religious affiliations.

They emphasised that Prime Minister Modi has prioritised fostering social equality among religious minorities in India, shifting away from appeasement politics to promote inclusive growth. Religious leaders underscored that Modi government policies have lifted over 250 million people out of poverty, benefiting all Indian citizens regardless of their religious beliefs.

Following the Roundtable Meeting, a solidarity walk was conducted from 47th Street in New York to Father Duffy Square, commemorating and honouring India’s spirit.

During the event, religious leaders engaged with the media and criticised such reports for not accurately representing India on the global stage, attributing this to flawed methodologies, faulty indicators, Western bias, and a lack of transparency.

Later, Times Square echoed with cheers for India as members of the Indian-American community joined multi-faith leaders, members of the Indian diaspora, corporate leaders, social activists, academics, US political figures, and representatives from various fields to celebrate Modi 3.0 and India’s global ascent over the past decade under Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the iconic New York City location.

The Indian diaspora enthusiastically cheered as an LED screen atop the square displayed a video highlighting the rapid pace of India’s development under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership in the last decade.
