CBI, Amit Shah, Hindutva, Mamata Banerjee

The BJP is trying the Hindutva card fervently in Bengal. It has stoked tension but not yet outright hate

Over the last two years, the RSS and BJP have made many attempts to demonise Mamata Banerjee as 'pro-Muslim' and themselves as 'emancipators' of upper-caste Bengalis. The result? So far, no good.

Hindutva, Narendra Modi, Tulsi gabbard, Audrey trushke

Why we should question scholar Audrey Trushke’s dislike for Tulsi Gabbard (and Narendra Modi)

Hindutva, Secularism, Friday namaz, Uttar Pradesh

Noida namaz order: If Muslims can’t pray in parks, will UP police ensure no puja pandals come up on public property?

Uttar Pradesh, Hindutva, Yogi Adityanath, Lok Sabha 2019

Ahead of Lok Sabha 2019 polls, BJP must rethink Yogi Adityanath's brand of Hindutva politics

During the Assembly polls in 2018, the BJP banked heavily on the polarisation of the Hindu vote. That hasn't worked. Can it afford to do so in the upcoming contest too?

Chhattisgarh Assembly elections, Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, Rajasthan assembly elections, Hindutva

Assembly polls verdict: BJP thought Ram Mandir dreams would distract voters from their problems. Now, it has a problem
