How “hate music” is fuelling anti-Muslim sentiment in India I DW News

The past decade in India has seen the rise of the Hindutva movement. The movement refers to political Hinduism, which seeks to place the Hindu religion at the centre of political and social life in India. For many it also means making India a Hindu nation.
