Minorities in India facing existential threat


Islamabad, August 18 (KMS): The religious minorities are facing existential threat in India since Narendra Modi-led fascist government came into power in the country in 2014.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said that the Modi government backed by rightwing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is imposing Hindutva ideology in India and is hell bent upon converting the country into a Hindu Rashtra. It said forcible conversion, attack on mosques and churches and lynching of Muslims by Hindu fanatics have become a norm in Modi’s India.

The report pointed out that Indian religious minorities face increased attacks under Modi. “Extremist Hindus have committed numerous assaults against Muslims and other minority communities in India since Modi came to power. Religious minorities are attacked with impunity in BJP-ruled India. Hindutva is a looming threat to religious minorities in India,” it said.

The report noted that Modi-ruled India has passed several laws in recent years that have made life more difficult for religious minorities. “RSS mentored BJP government with Modi as Prime Minister has stirred audacity in Hindu fundamentalists to go hard on minorities. Rights and life of the Indian religious minorities will remain under threat until RSS-BJP’s are ruling India,” it added.

The report maintained that Modi’s fascist policies are reminiscent of that of Hitler and unchecked attacks on religious minorities in India is a challenge for global community.
