India’s Vibrant Muslim Communities Vital to U.S.-India Strategic Partnership

New Delhi:  The U.S. Ambassador to India Richard R. Verma told India’s leading Muslim entrepreneurs, scholars, and clerics here at the India Islamic Cultural Centre on 4 March that they were each “vital players in advancing our countries’ shared values and vision.”

Noting that “the future of the U.S.-India relationship depends on human capital,” Ambassador Verma said, “your perspectives and contributions are the key asset for its growth.”   

 The hour-long discussion with over 50 people representing the geographic, professional, and ideological diversity of India’s vibrant Muslim communities highlighted the people-to-people role in strengthening U.S.-India relations.

During his visit, the Ambassador also met some of the young Muslim students who benefit from the center’s vocational training programs and inaugurated the center’s newly-renovated Board Room.
