Growing Hindutva influence in Indian society is threatening non-Hindu minorities of India: Analysts
December 08, 2018

Dr. Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst):

There is certainly an increase in Indian State terrorism in Held Kashmir particularly in Modi’s regime. It is Modi’s doctrine to resolve suppression tactics to resolve Kashmir dispute but the fact is that, Kashmiris indigenous movement for self-determination has gained momentum as a result of suppression. Kashmiris have never accepted illegal Indian occupation on Held Kashmir. The only solution lies in giving the Kashmiris their right to self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions. The first ever report issued by the UN on the human rights is a charge-sheet against Indian atrocities in Held Kashmir. According to the report, Indian forces have been involved in worst human rights violation in Occupied Kashmir. The British parliamentarians have raised serious concerns over human rights abuses in IOK and called for immediate cessation of massive violations of human rights in the valley, and ending the impunity enjoyed by Indian security forces.

Air Marshal (Retd) Shahid Latif (Defense Analyst):

Indian policies and human rights violations have been exposed in front of the world. The only solution to Kashmir dispute is implementation of UN resolutions according to which Kashmiris are supposed to be given their right to self-determination. Kashmir dispute is main cause of Indo-Pak tensions. India has continuously been trying to make the world acknowledge that Kashmir is a bilateral issue whereas it is an international issue now. India rather than to sit with Pakistan and resolve Kashmir issue through dialogue is making all out efforts to divert world’s attention from Kashmir dispute. The international community is well aware and is condemning the Indian atrocities and worst human right violations by Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir.

Air Vice Marshall (Retd) Ikramullah Bhatti (Defense Analyst):

Indian government has been implementing controversial policies in Occupied Kashmir and promoting Hinduism there. Indian government has also changed the educational syllabus in which religious extremism is being promoted. Minorities in India are not safe and are being forced to change their religion by force. Indian forces have also been violating LoC and the Working Boundary. Unfortunately, India which for nearly 7 decades wore a non-aligned/secular mask has finally under Modi’s BJP Government, has exposed its true self as being neither non-aligned, nor secular but a bigoted and intolerant Hindu State.

Lt Gen (Retd) Raza Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst):

The India has now become the most extremist country in the world without any doubt. The discriminatory Indian policies towards the minorities’ will lead India towards its downfall and isolation. Many analysts have predicted that Indian policies are leading the country towards destruction. At present, the growing Hindutva influence in Indian society is threatening non-Hindu minorities of India. The world has admired the step taken by Pakistan to open Kartarpur border but India is still doing anti-Pakistan propaganda. Pakistan’s efforts for peace should not be considered its weakness. British Parliamentarians have admitted that the Indian government has unleashed a reign of terror in the occupied Kashmir, in complete disregard for international human rights and humanitarian laws. India was constantly denying the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir and using brutal force to quell their indigenous freedom struggle that should be condemned.

Abdullah Gul (Defense Analyst):

In the garb of secularism and world biggest democracy, India has been exploiting the minorities throughout the post-colonial period. The recent cases of lynching Muslims for eating and transporting beef portray India’s prejudice against the minority. Last year over 200 Christian families were forced to convert their religion to Hinduism. There are almost 2900 Hindu sects having their own beliefs. Modi administration is leaving no stone unturned to achieve the desired goal of making India for Hindus. The so-called claim of India for being secular and the largest democracy depicts a bleak picture. The repression and atrocities committed by Indian forces have proved that India is neither secular nor a democracy. Pakistan is the country that took an initiative to open Kartarpur border in order to facilitate the Sikh pilgrims that is appreciated throughout the world.
