Hin­dut­va is theo­crat­ic Hin­du nation­al­ism. It is a pow­er­ful force in what is now the world’s most pop­u­lous coun­try. Naren­dra Modi, India’s prime min­is­ter, is a life­long mem­ber of the RSS, an open­ly Hin­du suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tion. Le Monde Diplo­ma­tique reports: Hin­dut­va fol­low­ers regard India as a Hin­du coun­try. Non-Hin­dus are at best guests, at worst invaders, and must be iden­ti­fied, watched, deprived of cer­tain rights, and in some cas­es expelled or even elim­i­nat­ed. The main vic­tims of Hin­dut­va are India’s large Mus­lim minor­i­ty. Hin­dut­va adher­ents oppose mixed Hin­du-Mus­lim mar­riages, call­ing them a love jihad’ that aims to con­vert Hin­du women so that their off­spring will be raised as Mus­lims. This para­noid fan­ta­sy has encour­aged vio­lence and wide­spread den­i­gra­tion of Indi­an Muslims.”
