• The Complex Nexus of Fascism, Communalism and Casteism

    "Fascism believes in an autocratic leader and we do have our leader, Modi"

    A Talk by Anand Teltumbde

    July 12, 2017

     

    At the Dharwad Literature Festival held on 6-7 May, 2017, Dr. Anand Teltumbde explained how the BJP Government under Narendra Modi is slowly turning India into a proto-fascist state buttressed by the twin evils of communalism and casteism. Despite being self-declared nationalists, the BJP Government aligns with the colonial rulers in its persistent attck on minorities, and in its rampant Hindu-isation of Indian culture, so much so that the term secularism now seems like a misnomer. 

    Teltumbde says that the BJP Government may soon prove to be more dangerous for India than the Nazi Party under Hitler was for Germany.
