“We will kill many” Muslims, say Hindu extremist leaders at event

At an event organized by the Hindu extremist group Sakal Hindu Samaj in Solapur, Maharashtra, Hindu militant leaders promised to kill “many” Muslims

“We will kill many Afzals, Akbars,” said one speaker at the event, referencing common Muslim names. He then implied that Hindus should inflict violence on Muslim men in the name of preventing interfaith relationships, adding, “You (Hindus) should pick up arms to protect your sisters.”

BJP leaders call for using bulldozers against Muslims, call Muslims invaders, say they should be expelled to Pakistan

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi continues to make anti-Muslim hate speeches, members of the Hindu supremacist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have also continued to spread anti-Muslim conspiracies and call for violence.

One BJP leader who has had a number of police reports filed against him for hate speech, T. Raja Singh, was once again booked for hate speech in Maharashtra after giving an anti-Muslim speech at an event. 

Singh had encouraged the Hindu extremist crowd to boycott halal products and normalize using bulldozers as collective punishment against Muslims, saying, “Land jihad, love jihad or cow slaughter… we will see who dares to defy us.”

“If you want to live in India, then you have to say Jai Shri Ram (glory to Ram). Otherwise, you have to go to Pakistan,” said BJP candidate Navneet Rana at an election rally in Amravati, Maharashtra.

In Unnao, Uttar Pradesh, BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj claimed at an election rally that “Some people (Muslims) want to invade India so that in 2045, the Islamic flag will be unfurled in India.” 

Hindu extremists disrupt Christian prayer meet

In Rajnandgaon, Chattisgarh, a group of Hindu extremists disrupted a Christian prayer meet, accusing them of forcibly converting Hindus to Christianity. 

Christians across states have been arrested under India’s draconian anti-conversion law, which criminalizes conversion away from Hinduism. The US-based human rights group International Christian Concern has named India among the top 10 countries persecuting Christians in its 2023 Persecutors of the Year Report.
