If we take the incident of demolition of Babri Mosque in 1992 as the starting point, then we can see that India is gradually becoming a Hindu country:
- Demolition of Babri Mosque
- Increased popularity of BJP
- Forced conversion into Hinduism
- Ban on Zakir Naik
- Increased activity of previously banned Hindu far right and extremist outfits
- Ban on cattle slaughter
- Emergence of cattle vigilante
- Significant increase in cow-related violence
- Significant increase in anti-Muslim hate crime
- Muslim lynching
