Narendra Modi, India’s Prime Minister, is facing criticism for comments he made during an election rally that many consider Islamophobic.

He suggested that the main opposition party would favor Muslims over others, sparking accusations of hate speech.

This comes amid a contentious election where Modi’s party is expected to win another term. Critics argue that Modi’s remarks deepen existing divides in a country with a large Muslim population.

The Election Commission of India is being urged to investigate if Modi’s comments violate electoral conduct rules.

These remarks reflect broader concerns about religious polarization under Modi’s leadership, with accusations of rising Islamophobia and communal tensions.

While the BJP denies discrimination, reports suggest an increase in anti-Muslim sentiment, prompting calls for action against hate speech.
