After a wave of anti-Israel protests led to the occupation of several US campuses, police were deployed to some campuses to disperse protesters. On several occasions, police personnel were criticized for their heavy-handedness as scenes of protesters clashing with police emerged.

America has been making statements against India for some time. Some time ago he had also raised questions regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act. Now it was India’s turn to answer. Taking a dig at previous instances of Western criticism of India in relation to the protests, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has said one should see images of US complexes on their television screens. Jaishankar was referring to the police action against anti-Israel protesters on US campuses in recent days. After a wave of anti-Israel protests led to the occupation of several US campuses, police were deployed to some campuses to disperse protesters. On several occasions, police personnel were criticized for their heavy-handedness as scenes of protesters clashing with police emerged.

Jaishankar said in an interview with The Economic Times that the West preaches about India but does not see itself. There are people who said you should not do anything to disrupt demonstrations, even if it inconveniences the public, blocks roads. How are they handling it when it comes to themselves? Jaishankar further said that whenever there is any movement in India, we get a lot of lectures on how to deal with the public. I invite you to watch the pictures on the television screen today. What do they preach, what do they practice, what is their agenda, what is their impartiality, or lack thereof?

When asked about foreign interference in Indian elections, Jaishankar said that there are self-styled people with different interests. Referring to criticism of India in Western circles on issues like press freedom and the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), Jaishankar asked why these people were not being held responsible. He termed such criticism as a “political hitjob”. There are people who publicly said that lakhs of Muslims will lose their citizenship because of CAA.
