Indian MP’s poisonArchive
IN the India of today, members of the ruling Hindutva clique can get away with demonising Muslims and other minorities without batting an eyelid. They hardly face any reprimands from their leadership, while the international community also mostly maintains a stony silence where persecution of minorities in India is concerned.
The comments made in a recent media interview by Subramanian Swamy, a member of the Indian parliament belonging to the ruling BJP, regarding Muslims, can only be described as hate speech of the most vile kind, and in any civilised dispensation the lawmaker would be facing charges of inciting communal hatred.
While talking to VICE News, Swamy told the interviewer that wherever there is a large Muslim population “there is always trouble” while adding that he was being “kind” by not letting “them [Muslims] ... enter India”.
