India: Business leaders call for tolerance of religious minorities & dissent
Business leaders and economists are voicing concern about religious intolerance in India, arguing "fraught sociopolitical landscape is making it less conducive to international business". Infosys founder N.R. Narayana Murthy said there is "considerable fear" among the minorities in India. Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan called for tolerance and respect for economic progress while criticising the growing tendency to ban unpalatable views, delicately yet forcefully wading into the raging debate over rising intolerance in society.
