The United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet on Wednesday issued a warning to India that its divisive policies could undermine economic growth.
Bachelet said that narrow political agendas in India were marginalizing vulnerable people in an already unequal society.
"We are receiving reports that indicate increasing harassment and targeting of minorities – in particular, Muslims and people from historically disadvantaged and marginalized groups, such as Dalits and Adivasis," Bachelet said in her annual report to the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva.
