(India) For most of India’s Hindus, religious and national identities are closely linked (Pew Research Center)

MANOLO CORICHI GOMEZ AND JONATHAN EVANS writes for Pew Research Center: At least since the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) electoral victories in 2014, the term “Hindu nationalism” has been frequently invoked in both Indian and Western media, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ruling party often described as promoting a Hindu nationalist agenda. But there is no widely accepted definition of what the term means, and little data exists on how common Hindu nationalist attitudes are in India and how they vary across the country.
