US hopes India would exercise restraint ahead of Hazare’s fast

Washington: Ahead of the proposed August 16 fast against corruption by social activist Anna Hazare, US has hoped that New Delhi would exercise democratic restraint in the way it deals with peaceful protest.

“As you know, we support the right of peaceful, non-violent protest around the world,” State Department spokesperson, Victoria Nuland, told reporters during her daily news conference.

“That said, India is a democracy, and we count on India to exercise appropriate democratic restraint in the way it deals with peaceful protest,” Nuland said in response to a question.
