This is beyond #ethnoNationalism.
Officially, the Constitution of India declares it as a "secular" republic, but over last several years, there has been a shift.
That does not bode well for #Muslims in India.

Die Wurzeln des #Hindunationalismus
Der indische Langzeit-Premier Narendra #Modi bezeichnet sich selbst als #Hindunationalist. Dahinter steckt ein politisches Konzept, das mehr als hundert Jahre alt ist und mit dem europäischen #Faschismus zusammenhängt.
Gut zusammengefasst, bis zur Gegenwart, mit einigen Sätzen von Scholz. Die, nach dem man gehört hat wie es mit der #Demokratie und der #Pressefreiheit in #Indien gerade aussieht, ganz anders klingen.

Madhya Pradesh's Emergence as Another Hindutva Laboratory Keeps BJP Afloat

However much the Sangh parivar may try now to impose its intolerant religious diktats by using her name, Kali in #Bengal had been traditionally worshipped as a goddess of rebellion against all such repressive orders.
by Sumanta Banerjee, July 2022
"Explaining their origins, modern day historians have traced their roots to the habits of hunter-gatherers, pastoral communities and agricultural cultivators of the ancient times. Faced with unpredictable natural calamities like #drought, #floods and #earthquakes that threatened their livelihoods, they tried to satisfy these whims of #MotherNature (“red in tooth and claw,” to quote English poet Alfred Tennyson), by creating local deities in her image."

Neue Weltmacht Indien: Geostratege, Wirtschaftsriese, Wissenslabor
An Indien scheiden sich die Geister. Obwohl oder gerade weil kaum jemand im Westen dieses widersprüchliche Land versteht. Zwischen Slums und Prunk, zwischen Yoga und Hightech, zwischen Bollywoodkultur und Kastenwesen ist uns das Land, dessen Bedeutung für die Weltgemeinschaft immer größer wird, ein Rätsel geblieben. Oliver Schulz liefert einen tiefen Einblick in die verschiedenen Facetten der indischen Gesellschaft und Kultur und gibt uns einen Überblick über die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Entwicklungsperspektiven der neuen Supermacht, die immer deutlicher ihre Ansprüche auf eine Führungsrolle in der Welt erhebt. Wie tickt dieses Land wirklich? Was hält es zusammen? Wie verlässlich ist es als Partner? Und wie bedrohlich könnte sein Aufstieg für die Weltgemeinschaft werden?

A Prayer, Chant and Protest Song: Faith Communities Must Resist Their #Extremists
by Sunita Viswanath, 30/Oct/2023
"It has been 23 days since the #Hamas attack that took at least 1300 #Jewish lives, and since then, more than 8,000 #Palestinian lives have been taken by #Israeli bombs. Half of them are children. The United States, along with many world powers, have given #Israel their blessing to 'defend' themselves against Hamas by bombing Palestinian civilians indiscriminately.
"In fact, the blessing of the #US has come in the form of over $ 3.3 billion a year ($ 370 billion dollars since 1948.
"The US is now proposing to send $ 14.3 billion more in military aid.
"I am a #Hindu American living in New York City, and my husband Stephan Shaw is a #JewishAmerican. We are active in Jewish Voice For Peace and Hindus For #HumanRights, both activating faith communities to take on their respective extremists. While we see an increasing alignment of #WhiteNationalism in the United States, #Zionism in Israel, and #Hindutva in the Indian context, my husband and I are part of inclusive movements of people working together in diverse coalitions for justice for all.
"One of the chants that echoed through Grand Central Station was, 'Never again for anyone, never again is now.' This, for us, is the most basic lesson of the Holocaust that many Jews seem to have forgotten.
"My pain as a #Hindu has been that Hinduism has been hijacked by #HinduSupremacists, led by the likes of #NarendraModi and #Adityanath. They are entrenching the Hindu community in #India and abroad with a false sense of victimhood and danger from our #Muslim siblings, and increasing #Islamophobic sentiment. Under the current regime, India is being transformed into a Hindu rashtra (nation) where Muslims and other religious minorities are neither welcome nor safe. Protesting with thousands of Jews calling for a ceasefire in #Gaza made me dream of a day when thousands – or even hundreds – of Hindus will gather to say ‘not in my name’ to violence committed by Hindu #supremacists."
India’s Behaviour on the World Stage Is Not Helping Its Interests

In the heart of Delhi, authorities take bulldozers to Muslim shrines with little warning
‘This government is hell-bent on removing the signs that point to the Muslim history and Muslim culture of the national capital.’
In Gurugram, 60 days after arson and fire
Two months after violence hit Delhi’s corporate suburb, Muslims who fled their temporary houses to go back to West Bengal, where they felt safer, are back. At home, in some of the State’s least developed areas mainly bordering Bangladesh, there are few jobs and little opportunity. Caught between hunger pangs and threats, Alisha Dutta and Samridhi Tewari ask why they picked the latter.
There are 🇮🇳 Indian think-tank types and academics (also outside India) and hindu-nationalist influencers leading the fervent crowds in rather 'expressive' name-calling of reporters for merely reporting what governments are saying, and openly calling for the elected head of #Canada to be removed for simply doing what is universally expected of him: decrying the assassination of their citizen by a supposedly friendly foreign state, no less.
This has the hallmarks of the launch of a brave new era where hindu-nationalism reveals itself a *global* force for anti-liberalism ("Hindu might makes Hindu right").
The CCP is watching with glee as Modi's #Hindutva state severs links to the annoyingly liberal 'First World' countries.
#Hindustan's islamic foes are only too happy to again see a foe as ideologically fervent as they are; it may do wonders for their sagging recruitment of fanatics.
The hinduist indignation is, unsurprisingly, getting boosted by various existing disruptionist and divisionist assets online.
Where does this leave secular India, not to mention India's non-Hindu minorities?
Where does this leave India's still formidable but increasingly constrained opposition?
Where does this leave the large Indian diaspora, especially in the West? (also see CCP and its longstanding orchestration of the Chinese diaspora to manipulate internal politics of foreign countries)
Lots of other questions regarding India's integration (or lack thereof) with the *current* global economic systems and "rules-based order"...
Questionable relationships between #ukpoliticalparties and #hindutva were around even before the #brexitreferendum in June 2016. Much of the #conservative campaign for the #london #mayor and #assembly relied on stirring up #antimuslim feeling among #hindu communities by implying that #SadiqKhan would literally strip gold ornaments off their womenfolk. And this particular campaign was in the first half of 2016! It did not pay off then but they have persevered with it since!
Modi’s ‘Tiger Warrior’ Diplomacy Is Harming India’s Interests
Hindu nationalist attitudes are alienating other nations.
That calls for a push against reactionary #ideologies like Thanith Tamil Iyakkam (Independent Tamil Movement), not Hindi or Tamil languages themselves.
We can accuse each other of having comprehension problems, or we can have a serious debate out the problems a lot of people have with Hindi language.
First, let's get it out of the way that there are three distinct concepts — #Hindi language itself, #Hindu religion, and #Hindutva (religious #nationalism that threatens to hijack the other two in the same way that #Taliban hijacked #Islam). People often conflate the language itself with religion and political ideology

France riots: Why Hindu nationalists in India are backing the French far right
With many of the protestors in France being Muslims, Hindutva supporters in India are supporting the French far right.
"It’s a movement that sometimes feeds off white supremacist sentiment, said Mishra, but…employs language fit for an overwhelmingly Democratic Indian American base. Terms like 'Hinduphobia,' which have been used by a tech-savvy generation of Hindu nationalists…are an example…'The claim is that any attack on Hindu nationalism or any attempt to critique the treatment of Muslims in India is Hinduphobia … is an attack"
India cuts periodic table and evolution from school textbooks - “There is a movement away from rational thinking, against the enlightenment and Western ideas” in India, adds Sucheta Mahajan, a historian at Jawaharlal Nehru University who collaborates with Mukherjee on studies of RSS influence on school texts.
