At an electoral event in India, Modi is accused of employing hate rhetoric when he refers to Muslims as “infiltrators.”

To summarize, shortly after the country’s general election began, the prime minister was accused of employing “hate speech” by the nation’s major opposition party.

Muslims, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are “infiltrators” who have “more children”.

What comes next? On June 4, the election results will be announced.

Days after the nation’s weeks-long general election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi dubbed Muslims “infiltrators.” The country’s major opposition party accused Modi of employing hate rhetoric.

At an electoral event in India, Modi is accused of employing hate rhetoric when he refers to Muslims as "infiltrators."

The comments, which Modi made on Sunday during a campaign event, have come under heavy fire for being perceived as propagating stereotypes about Muslims.

The Congress party has lodged a complaint with the Indian Election Commission on Monday, claiming that he violated regulations prohibiting candidates from participating in any actions that worsen religious tensions.

Avowedly a Hindu nationalist, the prime minister’s opponents said that since his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power ten years ago, India’s secularism and diverse traditions have been under threat.

They charged that the party was encouraging violence and bigotry based on religion.

The party denied the accusation and said its policies benefit all Indians.

At an electoral event in India, Modi is accused of employing hate rhetoric when he refers to Muslims as "infiltrators."

At a rally in the state of Rajasthan, Modi said that when the Congress party was in government, “they said Muslims have the first right over the country’s resources.”

If it returns to power, the party “will gather all your wealth and distribute it among those who have more children,” he said as the crowd applauded.

“They will distribute it among infiltrators,” he added. “Do you think your hard-earned money should be given to infiltrators?”

The remarks made by the prime minister were referred to as “hate speech” by Congress Party President Mallikarjun Kharge and as “deeply, deeply objectionable” by party spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi.

The party called on the electoral commission to take action since it is against their code of conduct for candidates to use appeals “to caste or communal feelings” in order to get support.

In a six-week election that most pollsters predict Modi and his Hindu nationalist BJP would win, the first ballots were cast on Friday.

On June 4, the results are released.

The head of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen party and a Muslim MP, Asaduddin Owaidi, declared on Sunday that “since 2002 till this day, the only Modi guarantee has been to abuse Muslims and get votes.”

Human rights organizations claim that violence against minorities have become more blatant under Modi, despite the fact that tensions between Muslims and India’s majority Hindu society have long existed.

Hindu mobs have killed Muslims on the suspicion that they eat beef or smuggle cows—an animal revered by Hindus—into their country.

Places of worship for Muslims have been set on fire, their houses and businesses have been destroyed, and their companies have been boycotted. Their genocide has been openly called for.

In his speech, Prime Minister Modi cited a 2006 comment made by Congressman Manmohan Singh.

Lower castes, tribes, women, and “in particular the Muslim minority” in India, according to Singh, should all have an equal say in the nation’s growth.

“They must have the first claim on resources,” Singh stated. His office said the next day that Singh was talking about all the underprivileged groups.

The Congress party said in their plea to the electoral commission that Modi and the BJP had freely used religious feelings and symbols during their election campaign.

“These actions have been further bolstered by the commission’s inaction in penalising the prime minister and the BJP for their blatant violations of electoral laws,” added the statement.

“No prime minister in India’s history has diminished the dignity of his office to the extent that Modi has,” Congress President Nirmal Kharge said on X, previously known as Twitter.

For transgressions of the code of conduct, the commission has the authority to suspend applicants for a certain period of time and provide warnings.

“We decline [to] comment,” a commission official said on Monday to the Press Trust of India news organization.

Modi also reiterated in his address a Hindu nationalist myth that Muslims were surpassing Hindus in population size via childbearing.

Of India’s 1.4 billion population, 200 million Muslims make up 14% of the country, compared to 80% Hindus.

According to official data, Muslim fertility rates have decreased the quickest of all religious groups in the last several decades, from 4.4 in 1992–1993 to 2.3 between 2019 and 2021—just higher than Hindu fertility rates at 1.94.

Muslims had traditionally been portrayed by Modi’s BJP as illegal migrants who entered India through Bangladesh and Pakistan and as infiltrators.

The unverified conspiracy idea of “love jihad,” which holds that Muslim males exploit marriage to convert Hindu women, has led many states controlled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to pass legislation restricting interfaith marriage.

Critics claim that because Modi has mostly remained silent throughout, some of his most ardent fans have gained confidence and that hate speech directed at Muslims has increased.
