The Indian human rights activists, members of civil society groups (including many Hindus) and representatives of India’s religious minorities gathered recently at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar to urge India’s government to adopt a zero tolerance stance towards radical Hindu groups and thus stop their violence, coercion and hate campaigns against religious minorities.

At this occasion, John Dayal said, The first 100 days of the new regime have seen “a crescendo of hate speech against Muslims and Christians,” their “identity derided, their patriotism mocked, their citizenship questioned, their faith mocked.”
