A federal panel on religion has urged the United States to weigh sanctions against India’s Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah if the south Asian nation adopts legislation that excludes Muslims from a path to citizenship for religious minorities from its neighbours.

Shah is a close associate of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Hindu nationalist-led government is seen by critics as pushing an agenda that undermines the secular foundations of India’s democracy.
