Human Rights Watch has urged the international community to "spotlight the human rights abuses" of Indian government at the time when Prime Minister Modi is set to address the United Nations General Assembly forum in New York this week.  

The address of the Indian Prime Minister is expected to outline global issues and list his government's achievements on the domestic front.

But back home, the authorities are criticizing his government for politically motivated prosecutions, human rights abuse particularly against minorities and not allowing the watchdogs to monitor the grim situation.
