EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Fascism in India? It’s a secular republic, according to its constitution but the country under its prime minister Narender Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party, the BJP, has drifted sharply to the religious right. The BJP ideology is Hindutva, Hindu nationalism. Its mother ship, and its muscle, is the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the RSS. It’s a Hindu nationalist paramilitary organization,...

Chomsky unambiguously declared,...
