Hailing from a hardline Indian nationalist and conservative group (RSS), Narendra Modi was elected as the prime minister of India back in 2016. RSS is also suspected to be the ideological backbone of India’s ruling party BJP. Critiques are of the view that India’s iconic independence leader and an iconoclast Mahatma Gandhi was also put to death by one of RSS followers i.e. Nathoram God says Modi’s government is also accused of neo-fascism and inciting violence against minorities.
Time really is suitable to expose the fascist and violent face and mindset of Modi and his party to the world.
India is the world’s biggest democracy and a humongous country is heading down a dangerous path since the BJP took over the echelon of power. With people especially minorities being lynched and brutally suppressed for eating beef and cow slaughtering the Indian held supra nationalist Narendra Modi and his party has not spoken vocally against these type of Fascists.
Spiel of violence
Turn the dusty pages of history and you will find the spiel of violence when more than 2000 the scoundrels and Extremists of RSS massacred Muslims in Gujrat. Narendra Modi is often accused of supporting and providing aid to those involved in the pogrom of Gujrat. Since the fascist Modi took over, the powers, the rational, reasonable, and secular ethos in India have seen a steady degradation. Critical voices suppressed, minorities pushed to the wall and the critiques branded traitors, this Modi led government has unleashed its fascist ideology to the world. Modi’s government has unleashed the might and breadth of its fascist vision on India.
Communal violence is on the rise and Modi’s India is flirting with fascism. Everyday Muslims in Indian held Kashmir suffer the wrath of political weapon.
The anti-Muslim riots in India are proof that how the minorities in the so-called secular county are vandalised and butchered by the Angry Mobs. The radical mobs of India have crossed every limit of humanity in order to tackle the non-violent minorities. These mobs were no offense succored by Narendra Modi to get their endorsement in elections. The inability of the state’s machinery in deterring these inhumane activities in the Muslim dominated areas is a disturbing but recurring sign of state complicity. It is difficult to imagine the audacity of a mob openly carrying out acts of arson and violence in India. The sense of impunity is palpable.
Dilute the Muslim-majority with Hindu settlers
Communal violence is on the rise and Modi’s India is flirting with fascism. Everyday Muslims in Indian held Kashmir suffer the wrath of political weapon. By repealing Article 370 of the constitution, people from the rest of India will now have the right to acquire property in occupied Kashmir and settle there permanently. Kashmiris as well as critics of India’s Hindu nationalist-led government see the move as an attempt to dilute the demographics of Muslim-majority Kashmir with Hindu settlers.
India is the world’s biggest democracy and a humongous country is heading down a dangerous path since the BJP took over the echelon of power.
In terms of the state’s data from the home affairs of India, shows that there has been a 25 percent increase in incidents of communal violence in the first five months of Modi’s government. The impression has now gained grounds that India is now governed by obtrusive and intolerant forces, determined to put minorities rationales and liberals somewhere not far from the dustbin. Islamic fundamentalists are emboldened by these fascist developments in India. Everyone in the BJP led government is extremely alarmed. From erstwhile stakeholders to the writers, and from opinions to the foreign policy-makers, all are busy tearing their heads in order to perceive a positive and tolerant image of fascist India.

The capital’s BJP Administration seems curiously oblivious to the great damage being done to India by Global perceptions of mounting intolerance. Modi’s India can’t simultaneously sell itself to the world as a learned pluralism, tolerance, and gandhinism while promoting intolerance, communal hatred, and minority insecurity within India.
Time is really on our side to expose the fascist and violent face and mindset of Modi and his party to the world. Muslims in India need to unite and start a non-violent movement against the barbarian and inhumane policies of Modi. Unification of all minorities regardless of caste, religion, and creed will yield better results. Furthermore, the international community including the United Nations must act swiftly to avoid further catastrophe in this regard.
