‘Religious minorities facing state-sanctioned violence in India’

Spread the love

Religious minorities are facing state-sanctioned violence in BJP-ruled India as the Modi-led fascist Indian government has adopted laws and policies that systematically discriminate against Muslims and other minorities in the country.

Persecution of Muslims, Christians and other minorities has galloped and religious minorities are threatened, harassed and attacked with impunity since Modi came to power in India in 2014, a report released, today, by KMS said.

It lamented that the unprovoked attacks on Muslims and other religious minorities had become a norm in India as Modi aims at marginalizeing and disenfranchising Muslims and other religious minorities in the country.

The report said communal policies adopted by the BJP government have further emboldened Hindu extremists, adding Muslims are experiencing discrimination in all sectors across India and the BJP politicians have been publicly justifying attacks against the religious minorities.

It maintained that several international reports had documented violence and discriminations against religious minorities in India, which had become a fascist state under Modi.

The report said that violence and discrimination against religious minorities have exposed the so-called Indian secularism as Modi’s fascist ideology is the biggest threat to peace and stability in South Asia.

It said, New Delhi-based Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR) during a press conference said that India was witnessing severe rights abuses against minorities induced by systematic hatred in the country. The press conference was attended by religious leaders from Muslim, Christian and Buddhist communities and other social activists at Pink City School of Jaipur city in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

The APCR representatives during the press conference said, religious and other minority groups are suffering persecution, discrimination and systematic marginalisation in India.

The report said that the world champions of human rights must speak for the rights of religious minorities in India and must bring New Delhi to book for violating international laws.
