Tensions in Leicester, UK have been rising dramatically over the past few weeks. This comes on the heels of a vicious attack 3 months ago in the city that saw a mob of youths chanting Hindu slogans attacking a 19 year old Muslim. Another attack took place just 4 days ago that resulted in another gang of Hindu youths attacking a 20 year old Muslim man in the same city. The victim was beaten and hospitalized. CCTV footage has been handed over to the police however no arrests, to the moment of this publication, have been made.
Tensions have been rising in different places around the world since the start of the year as the Hindu nationalist government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, continues it’s campaign against Muslims in the country of more than one billion. Scores of Muslims have been beaten and lynched in Indian towns and villages and little is done by the Modi government to speak against it or to stop it.
