Reuters removes Haley's picture with swastika seen behind her


ANI New Delhi [India]
International news agency Reuters has removed an earlier photo of US Ambassador to United Nations Nikki Haley with a swastika seen behind her at a Hindu temple in New Delhi.
The swastika is an ancient religious symbol for Hindus and Buddhists. It was also used as a symbol by Nazi Germany.
Haley, who was on a three-day visit to India, visited Gauri Shankar Temple on June 28 in the national capital.
The US envoy also visited Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib, where she also prepared food for langar (community kitchen).
She also paid a visit to Jama Masjid and Central Baptist Church.
Daughter of the Sikh immigrants from Punjab, she touted freedom of religion during her visit to India.
"We think freedom of religion is just as important as freedom of rights and freedom of peoples," she said on June 27 during her address.
Haley, who is the highest ranking Indian-American official in the Trump administration, last visited India in 2014 when she was the South Carolina Governor.
