BJP Anti Muslim and Anti Pakistan Narrative
The Sangh Parivar of BJP in India has long exploited Pakistan as a punching bag, while simultaneously slamming the Muslim kings and sultans who controlled the subcontinent centuries ago. A line was crossed, however, when members of India’s Hindu nationalist ruling party began publicly insulting Islamic holy figures.
BJP Attack On Muslim Islamic Holy Figures
Two BJP spokespersons’ filthy remarks towards the Holy Prophet (PBUH) were not accidental. People in authority feel free to attack renowned icons of other religions to placate their fanatical vote bank because of decades of anti-Muslim venom poured by India’s hard right.

Hindu minorities at risk
The rise of Hindu nationalism has put Hindu minorities, like as Christians and Dalits, at risk. Islamophobia has targeted Muslims the most, with attacks on their sacred figures, their allegiance to the state, and restrictions on their cultural and religious traditions.
BJP’s Sangh Parivar is playing with fire
The Sangh Parivar is playing with fire with its latest provocation. The situation can swiftly develop if hate-mongers, particularly those with governmental and institutional support, are not reined in. Already, there has been violence in some localities.
New Delhi Should change his stance
