India: 'Hypocrisy' - Protesters decry Israel-India links as Netanyahu arrives for six-day visit

Members of 'Indians in solidarity with Palestine' protesters marched through the streets of New Delhi on Monday, furious with their government as it hosts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a six-day visit.

Protesters chanted anti-Netanyahu slogans, burned posters of the Israeli PM, displaying their anger at the country's links with Israeli.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind leader Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas said: "The government of India on the one side, say that we support the Palestinians. They have even given the vote in favour of Jerusalem at the United Nations. But it is hypocrisy that on the other hand you are giving a warm welcome to Israeli Prime Minister, who himself has violated many human rights and civil rights of the Palestinians. So this is Hypocrisy."

Netanyahu arrived in New Delhi on Sunday for a six-day visit along with a business delegation of 130 members. The Israeli leader's visit took place a year after Modi became the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel.
