US scholar voices senior concern over persecution of minorities in India
March 31, 2023

Senior scholar at US-based Cato Institute Doug Bandow says the state-sponsored persecution of minorities and mob violence has put the Narendra Modi’s India of today at the risk of tearing itself apart. 

In his article, he said hate crimes and violence against minorities including Muslims, Christians, Dalit and others are on constant surge being provoked by ruling BJP leaders, backed the discriminatory legislation and also stamped by the Indian judiciary.

Doug Bandow said since Modi’s re-election in 2019, the government has pushed controversial policies that explicitly ignore Muslims’ rights and are intended to disenfranchise millions of Muslims.
