India headed towards a fascist regime under BJP, says activist – The Hindu

Questioning the secular nature of the present Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government at the Centre, noted civil rights activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad said here on Monday that we are heading towards a fascist regime.

“Fascism occurs when corporate capitals capture the political economy. Unless we assert ourselves as secular citizens, we will keep on wondering who is truly secular and who is not,” Ms. Setalvad said.

Referring to the recent political clashes between the BJP and the All India Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, she said communal clashes were slowly creeping into States which were untouched by riots in 1947.
