    Is Modi's India flirting with fascism?

    Ram Madhav, National General Secretary of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, on Hindu nationalism.

    In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges Ram Madhav, National General Secretary of India's ruling BJP and former spokesman of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the right-wing Hindu nationalist organisation and ideological wing of the BJP.

    Last year, the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi signalled a new era in India politics: promises of extraordinary transformation and economic development, but also a turn to right-wing Hindu nationalism, which has been accused of anti-Muslim, anti-minority rhetoric.

    We explore whether Hindu nationalism is inherently exclusionary and if it is compatible with secularism and democracy, and probe violence against minorities. We also discuss human rights abuses in Indian-administered Kashmir, and how to bring peace to the region.

    I watched his two episodes of head to head with Pakistan as well India and thoroughly enjoyed it that how he was asking all clear straightforward questions in such short period of time and he certainly made this national general secretary of India's ruling BJP speechless and all he had was hollow excuses , false justifications and confuse smiles lol He even called host your ISIS in confusion and good slap of Pakistani Kashmir at his face in the end hahaah

    If it takes fascism to eradicate 60 years of spineless pacifism, then so be it.

    False identity troll, saffron chaddi bot. Most likely @mujhaind.
    @WebMaster @Horus, please ban the IP this time.

    These guys, Modi's criminal henchmen, are literally deities to the common Indian masses, the God's they have voted to power to protect cows, kill minorities and turn India superpower.

    Exposing fascist policies will not change the common Indian man's IQ, sadly.

    @samv Stupid thread title.
    What does Ram Madav have to do with India's policy making ?
    He is just a poster boy.

    Isn't he the head of the Hindu Extremist party, the BJP or something like that?

    It was a great interview. Hindu Extremist sahib was ripped apart by the presenter, experts and audience.

    Good ducking.
    You thought it was right and that is the reason you posted it here.
    So can we hear your part of logic to this ?

    He is not the only head, he is one of many. If he continues to speak like this he will be thrown out of the party one day.
    And, I suppose BJP is not a Hindu 'extremist' party. It is just pro-Hindu. Hindu extremist parties are the ones like VHP, BD, MNS, Shiv Sena.
    If anyone here had convinced (or fooled) you that BJP is an Hindu extremists party, please correct it. Effects of talking with fools and illiterates.
