India: A New Face of Hindu Nationalism
This week we journey to India, where a man named Narendra Modi is a leading candidate for the next prime minister. He’s been a boon for the failing economy in his home state of Gujarat. But many minorties are worried about his Hindu nationalism, and say he turned a blind eye to Gujarat's anti-Muslim riots in 2002. Miranda Kennedy traveled to Gujarat’s biggest city - and a Muslim neighborhood called Juhapura - to learn more.

India is soaked in religion. It’s the proud birthplace of many religious traditions: Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism and Hinduism. And it continues to be a spiritual mixing bowl. The Mystify Sound band join us in the studio to bring the spiritual richness of India to life, through Indian classical melodies, Hindu devotionals, and other tunes.
