SummaryModi was denied a US visa in 2005 on the ground of alleged human rights violations after the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Narendra Modi does not have any compelling reason to visit the US but once he becomes Indiaís Prime Minister and such a need arises, America will have to grant him visa, senior BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha said on Sunday.

ďModi does not have any compelling reason to visit the US. It is not necessary that every decision by every government is always correct,Ē Sinha told PTI when asked about the issue of the US denying visa to Modi.

Modi was denied a US visa in 2005 on the ground of alleged human rights violations after the 2002 Gujarat riots and his existing tourist and business visa was revoked under the Immigration and Nationality Act, which makes a foreign government official responsible for severe violations of religious freedom ineligible for a travel document.
