Today’s India, with a racist and fascist government, not only poses threat to the region of Asia but to the whole world. The recent insane actions by the government have grabbed the attention of the world. Looking at today’s India some people relate it to the Adolf Hitler’s brutal regime. The BJP (Bharatya Jananta Party) of Narendra Modi with RSS ideology is compared to the Hitler’s Nazi party.
The world has seen how 8 million people were kept under an inhumane curfew followed by the citizenship act imposed by India’s government. This has led to some serious concerns not in the world but inside India as well. It seems that Muslims and minorities are being targeted deliberately. Riots and protests have been started all around India against these acts. The unforgettable massacre by Narandra Modi also comes to one’s mind when analyses the situation. The real target seems to be the Muslim sentiments. The origin of this mindset goes back to 1925 with the foundation of RSS (Rashtriya SwayamsevakSangh), an Ultra Hindu Nationalist, paramilitary organization. The Prime Minister of Pakistan also exposed the ideology of RSS in front of the whole world in his UNGA address.
This ideology of RSS deeply relates with the ideology of Hitler’s Nazism who believed in racial purity which resulted in the massacre of Jews. The Nazis believed that their Arian race was superior to all the races that existed. The same superiority complex can be seen in today’s BJP government. They believe that the golden era of Hindu rule was compromised because of the Muslims. Both the ideologies are based on hatred among humans and ethnic cleansing.
Considering the RSS ideology, it is quite evident from despise that Indian Cricketer Muhammad Shami (only Muslim player in the Indian National team) faced after getting an unprecedented defeat from Pakistan. The grimy Social Media trends depicted the inflexible RSS ideology.
In 2002, the Gujrat Massacre was led by the then Chief Minister and now Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi under the RSS ideology in which Muslims in huge numbers were mercilessly murdered. Modi was accused of initiating and condoning the riots in Gujrat. United States in 2005, denied Visa to NarendraModi on religious-freedom grounds, stemming from allegations that he tacitly supported Hindu extremists during Hindu-Muslim riots in his home state in 2002.
Under the same pattern, the demolition of the historical BabriMasjid, sacred to Muslims presented a similar picture. The mosque was stoned to ground by a large group of activists from BJP in 1992. In 2019, the India Supreme Court in its verdict on the Babri Masjid case, announced the land to be handed over to a trust to build the Hindu temple. This infused a great anxiety among Muslims thinking about their future in India as a Minority.
It was of the same reason that Quaid-e-Azam who at once was the biggest advocate of Hindu Muslim Unity separated himself from the Hindus and joined Muslim League in 1913. Today, the world praises his farsightedness and accepts his narrative of Hindu extremism as true.
The world powers need to understand the complexity of the situation. The already damaged credibility of institutions like the United Nations will be in complete danger if anything happens in Kashmir and the minorities being targeted in India moreover a country that has the most destructive warfare weapon of Nuclear with inhuman ideology is a threat to whole human race.
