Hate Effects of Jai Shree Ram: Professor Dutta Explores How Ayodhya Temple Celebrations Fuel Hindutva’s Narrative of Hindu Pride

Professor Mohan Dutta, Director of CARE, sheds light on how videos circulating on X (Twitter) depicting the celebrations surrounding the inauguration of the Ayodhya Temple become mobilizing anchors for deploying the narrative of Hindu pride. Within this narrative of reclaiming the lost glory of Hinduism, violence is legitimised. Portraying the Hindu majority as victims of Muslim invaders and framing sites of grievance as the politics of grievance, while depicting minorities as perpetrators of crimes, often form the architecture for violence and fascist organising, a key feature of Hindutva.
