Hindutva Rises

45

Hindutva extremists set fire to houses and other Muslim property in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Violence against Muslims erupted after Hindu groups held a bicycle rally in the name of celebrating the Hindu New Year in an Islamic area of ​​Karauli and chanted slogans. Hindustan songs that encouraged violence against Muslims were also played on loudspeakers during the procession. Participants who passed through a Muslim-majority area threw stones at Muslim houses and set fire to shops and their vehicles to ashes. According to police, at least 35 people were injured in the clashes. Mobile internet is always set up locally. In Indian Jammu and Kashmir illegally occupied, the leadership of the Hurriyat General Assembly has condemned the intensified efforts of the Indian state led by the fascist Modi to oppress the people of Kashmiri. Leadership in a statement issued in Srinagar said the recruiting government had created a climate of fear and apprehension, especially after August 2019 to advance the local colonial agenda. Hindutva is the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. The election manifesto of the Bharatiya Janata Party the party in power and political front of the RSS has been sworn by it since 1996. What is more, Hindutva provides ample warning for what is in store for the future of India’s democracy and secularism. It splits the nation into ‘us’ and ‘them’ and discards Indian nationalism in favor of Hindu nationalism. Since 1996, the BJP’s election manifestoes for Lok Sabha elections pledge to espouse Hindutva in these terms: “The cultural nationalism of India is the core of Hindutva.” which explains the Modi government’s systematic purge of educational and cultural institutions. It is a quarrel with history. As scholars Susanne and Lloyd Rudolph remarked, modern hatreds are supported by ancient, remembered wrongs, whether real or imagined. The RSS-BJP combination rejects the concept of composite culture that Jawaharlal Nehru and others propounded.
