The recommendations in the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief's report of 26 January 2009 were discussed during the most recent EU-India Human Rights Dialogue on 25 March 2010. We will continue to raise the issue of minority rights, including the right to freedom of religion and belief, with the appropriate Indian authorities as part of the ongoing EU-India Human Rights Dialogue. The existing UN processes, including the Universal Periodic Review, consider progress on human rights issues including UN recommendations and commitments.
