India Burning (Clip) | VICE on SHO

India has been engulfed in riots after the world’s biggest democracy suddenly stripped nearly two million people of their citizenship. As the nation’s leaders ramp up Hindu nationalist rhetoric, a newly-enacted law has signaled to India’s 200 million Muslims that they are the true target. This could mean that they end up in one of the brand-new detention camps quietly being constructed across the country.

VICE’s Isobel Yeung investigates the growing fear that Hindu supremacism may undermine secularism and relegate India’s Muslims into second-class citizens.

Hindu activists drink cow urine against the coronavirus | AFP

Dozens of Hindu activists hold a cow urine party in the Indian capital to protect and cure themselves from the coronavirus, as countries around the world struggle to control the deadly pandemic. Many in the Hindu-majority nation of 1.3 billion consider cows sacred and some, in recent years, have made several unverified assertions about cow urine being an elixir, claims that critics have rejected as quackery. Governments and scientists have said no medicine or vaccine is available to protect or cure the infection.

Is India becoming a Hindu nation? | AFP

On 11 December 2019, India’s Parliament approved a controversial law, making it easier for persecuted religious minorities from three neighbouring countries to obtain citizenship, but not if they are Muslim. Since the vote, hundreds of thousands have rallied across the country challenging the bill. This legislation is the latest in a series of moves by the government that have stoked fears that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to remould the world’s largest democracy as a Hindu nation.

India set to publish citizens list that could make millions stateless | AFP

India’s government will on Saturday publish a “citizens register” in the state of Assam that has left several million people, mostly Muslims, fearful of becoming stateless. A draft register last year left off more than four million people living in the north-eastern state, and India’s Hindu nationalist government has indicated it wants to replicate the process nationwide.

Pakistan Wants The World To Do Something About India And Kashmir

Muneeb Ur Rehman was at home with his family when a mortar shell hit the house and killed him.

“He was hit in the head once, and one shell piece hit his leg. There was huge bloodshed, so much blood just flowing inside the house,” said Nazakath Ali Khan, Muneeb’s cousin.

Battal lies on the Pakistani side of the so-called Line of Control, a de facto border that splits the disputed region of Kashmir with Pakistan controlling one side and India controlling the other.

Islamabad and Delhi both claim Kashmir in full, but since the 1949 U.N.-brokered ceasefire, they control only parts of it — territories recognized internationally as Indian-administered Kashmir and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The two countries are on the verge of war over Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move earlier this month to revoke Article 370, a constitutional provision that had granted special status to the region of Kashmir that it controls.

Khan told VICE News that since Modi’s move on Aug. 5, there’s been an upsurge in violence.

“It has become routine here — people dying here day by day. You can find there is more bombardment from India, there are more fighters, there’s more targeted killings from the Indian side,” Khan said.

To try to stifle any violent reaction, India has put the region it controls on lockdown. The military patrols the streets, and the internet has been blacked out. It’s the only Muslim-majority state in India, leading many in Pakistan and Pakistan-administered Kashmir to believe Modi’s move is motivated by extreme Hindu nationalism.

The situation has become serious enough that the United Nations Security Council met on Aug. 16 to discuss the crisis, the first time it met formally to discuss Kashmir since 1971.
