The report on human rights atrocities in India has stated that minority communities have not been able to live peacefully in any way while India has been continuously disrespecting the recommendations of the European Union and the United Nations.

It has also been stated that civil society and media organizations have failed to pressurize India to implement various recommendations. India has also been called ‘reckless’ in implementing Human Rights standards in the report.

The report has said that Hinduism has been found a state-sponsored religion while other religions have found difficulty performing their fundamentalist religious rights. The same case has been cited for freedom of speech in India along with the separation of executive and judiciary and freedom of movement.
