Washington, DC: Indian-American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi has said that Pakistan’s spy agency ISI considers him an “enemy” because of his stand against the radicals in the South Asian country.
The Democratic Party lawmaker from Illinois said this while addressing community members during a fundraiser hosted by him in Boston at the residence of eminent Indian American R V Kapur, president of the US India Security Council (USISC), reported PTI.
He (Krishnamoorthi) said that the ISI in Pakistan views him as an enemy for his stand against radicals in Pakistan. He reiterated that he respected all religions and never discriminated against any color, race or religion, according to a press statement issued by the US India Security Council.
Krishnamoorthi assured the Indian-American community to continue to support strategic relations between the US and India if he won so that this friendship could deter China from its ambitions in the pacific.
The lunch among others was attended by several eminent Indian Americans, including Vikram Rajyadaksha, Dinesh Patel, Abhishek Singh, Amar Sawhney, Deepika Sawhney and Dr. Raj Raina.
USISC said the fundraiser was held to support Krishnamoorthi for his forthcoming election in November and also to express the support of the Indian American Community for the 49-year-old Congressman’s consistent and constant stand supporting causes that help the Indian-American community and also build stronger US-India relations.
