Right-wing groups say violence against minorities has increased since Narendra Modi became prime minister.
The history of India contains centuries of diversity and coexistence between different groups.
But its actuality is marked by violence and hate speech against minorities.
Some politicians, including those with ties to the ruling BJP party, have been accused of inciting and promoting violence.
Indian and international human rights watchdogs say the frequency of attacks has increased since 2014, the year Narendra Modi became prime minister.
Some opposition parties accuse Modi of ignoring the issue and have warned him that the consequences could devastate India’s cultural diversity.
But will Modi act?
