US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has voiced concern over deadly violence against Muslims in Indian capital New Delhi and also took President Trump to cleaners for not speaking on the matter.

Bernie Sanders, in a tweet, said that more than 200 million Muslims call India home and Trump terming the spread of anti-Muslim mob violence an internal matter for the authorities was a failure of leadership on his part.

The violence in New Delhi has sharp reactions from US lawmakers soon after Trump concluded his recent India visit. Reacting to the violence, US Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal said the “deadly surge of religious intolerance in India is horrifying”.

Democratic hopeful for the US Presidency, Senator Elizabeth Warren, also tweeted out that the US had a responsibility to say that violence against peaceful protesters was never acceptable.
