Stage 6: Polarization, Stage 7: Preparation, Stage 8: Persecution, and Stage 10: Denial
India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made Islamophobia a state-manufactured ideology, increasingly putting the Muslim and Dalit communities under state-sponsored attack. The latest legislative action against Muslims is “anti-conversion” laws, which perpetuate the Islamophobic conspiracy theory that Muslim men lure Hindu women into romantic relationships and then convince them to convert to Islam. Military and police forces regularly arrest, beat, torture, and kill Muslim citizens, particularly those in Kashmir and Assam.
