Hindutva ideology (not to be confused with Hindu religion) is based on hatred and violence. Its ideologues openly call for genocide of Muslims. To deal with this hate-filled ideology, India needs to undergo some geographical surgery. India is an artificial state and such changes would usher peace in the region.
Alongside the Coronavirus, another virus—Hindutva—is raging across India. But unlike the coronavirus, the Hindutva virus does not cripple those afflicted by it; instead, it leads them to target minorities especially Muslims in India.
Hindu fascism and its attendant horrors are found in many other parts of the world. We can name a host of other fascists in power: Trump, Netanyahu, Bin Salman and their ilk. The world is a more dangerous place with their grubby hands on the levers of power.
Abrogating the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, Narendra Modi has created a dangerous situation in the region that could easily lead to nuclear war.

In a multi-religious, multi-ethnic and multi-linguistic country, that India is, secularism has been a far cry. The Muslim community has been the worst victim of this pseudo-secularism.
