    A recent report has revealed that Hindu fundamentalist groups are exploiting two important religious festivals, Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanthi, to discriminate against minorities in India. The report, published by the Centre for Policy Analysis, highlights the alarming trend of these festivals being used as a platform for communal violence and hate speech.

    Ram Navami is a Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Ram, one of the most revered figures in Hindu mythology. Hanuman Jayanthi, on the other hand, commemorates the birth of Lord Hanuman, a popular deity in Hinduism. Both festivals are celebrated with great fervor and enthusiasm across India, with processions, prayers, and cultural events being held in various parts of the country.

    However, in recent years, these festivals have become a breeding ground for religious intolerance and discrimination. Hindu fundamentalist groups use these occasions to spread hate speech against minorities, particularly Muslims and Christians. The report reveals that these groups often organize provocative rallies and processions that are marked by slogans and speeches that incite violence against minorities.

    The report also highlights the role of social media in spreading hate speech during these festivals. Many fundamentalist groups use social media platforms to spread propaganda and misinformation about minorities, which further fuels communal tensions. The report calls for greater regulation of social media platforms to prevent the spread of hate speech and misinformation.

    The consequences of this exploitation of religious festivals are dire. In recent years, there have been several instances of communal violence during Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanthi celebrations. In 2018, for instance, several people were killed and many more injured in clashes between different communities during Ram Navami processions in West Bengal.

It also calls for greater efforts to promote interfaith harmony and understanding, and for the government to take steps to prevent communal violence.

    In conclusion, the exploitation of religious festivals by Hindu fundamentalist groups to discriminate against minorities is a disturbing trend that needs to be addressed urgently. The government, civil society, and religious leaders must come together to promote tolerance and understanding, and to prevent the spread of hate speech and violence during these festivals. Only then can India truly become a country that celebrates its diversity and upholds the values of peace and harmony.
