Dr. Manzoor Khan Afridi (IR Expert): The Indian constitution officially designates India as a secular state; however, there is growing concern about the government's endorsement of Hindutva ideology in practice. Over the past decade, there has been an alarming increase in incidents targeting minority communities, often perpetrated by extremist elements within the Hindu community. The history of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, particularly during his tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat, is well-documented in this regard. These developments raise serious concerns about the trajectory of India's future and its impact on regional peace and stability. It is imperative for the international community to pay close attention to human rights violations occurring not only in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir but also within India itself. Addressing these issues is crucial for upholding the principles of human rights and promoting harmony within the nation and the broader region.
