Obama promotes religious tolerance in India speech

President Barack Obama is drawing on his own experience as a minority as he gently nudges India to fulfill its constitution’s pledge to uphold the “dignity of the individual.” Obama is closing out a three-day visit to New Delhi Tuesday with a speech touting the importance of religious tolerance. Obama says that while he has had extraordinary opportunities, there were moments in his life when he was treated differently because of the color of his skin. He also noted persistent false rumors that he is a Muslim, not a Christian.
