Harassment of WSJ journo 'unacceptable', says White House

Washington, Jun 27 (IANS): The harassment of Wall Street Journal reporter Sabrina Siddiqui who questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his joint presser with US President Joe Biden last week on religious rights and free speech, is "unacceptable", the White House said.

At a press briefing on Monday, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby was asked about the "intense online" harassment the reporter was facing following her questions at the joint conference on June 22.

To this, he replied: "We’re aware of the reports of that harassment. It’s unacceptable. And we absolutely condemn any harassment of journalists anywhere under any circumstances. That’s just -- that’s completely unacceptable. And it’s antithetical to the very principles of democracy were on display last week during the state visit."
