Members of the Kuwaiti National Assembly have condemned the atrocities committed by the Indian authorities and Hindu extremist groups against the Muslim community.

The lawmakers said in a joint statement that in the wake of the wave of violence and discrimination committed against Indian Muslims, including killing, displacement and burning, the lawmakers stand in solidarity with Muslims in India.

They called on international, humanitarian, human rights and Islamic organisations to immediately work to stop the Indian authorities' actions and restore security to Indian Muslims.

Media sources have recently reported that nearly 20,000 members of the Muslim minority in the state of Assam have been displaced from their homes after authorities evicted them from their homes under the pretext that they were built on state-owned land.
