Indian Muslims have shown great resilience: Obama admin

Washington: The US has been successful in engaging with India on tracking money used by radical groups to penetrate into the country, the Obama Administration has said as it praised Indian Muslims for demonstrating a great deal of “resilience” against overtures by terrorist groups.

“In Indian, Muslim community has demonstrated a great deal of resilience against such overtures,” Nisha Desai Biswal, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, told members of Senate Foreign Relations Committee during a Congressional hearing early this week.

“We have seen in India that radical ideology has by and large not been successful in taking root,” she said in response to a question when asked about penetration of Islamic extremism in India by Senator Chris Murphy.
