Indian Students Filmed Giving Extreme Oath to Make India a "Hindu-Nation"

By Abdulla Gaafarelkhalifa

On December 28, 2021, Suresh Chavhanke of Sudarshan News posted a video on twitter depicting Indian students doing a Nazi-like salute while reciting a Hindu nationalist inspired oath.

There was not any further information about what school these students attend, but what is known is that the video was taken in Nehru Park, in Sonbhadra, Uttar Pradesh. All the students, except the small children not in uniform, wore red and white; similar to the flag that represented those who may have inspired their salute.

According to a translation from The Quint, the chant read “We promise to work towards making India and keeping India a Hindu Rashtra. We will fight for this, die for this, and if required, kill for this. But we will not back down even for a moment, no matter the sacrifice. May our ancestors, teachers, Mother India give us enough strength so that we can fulfill our pledge. May they give us victory,"

The video was so alarming that the law enforcement in the area are investigating it.

Similar events have been taking place across India in recent weeks. In a border town near Nepal, a person can be seen administering a similar oath to locals in that village.

Just over a week prior, several videos surfaced showing several prominent Indian figures calling for citizens to attack Muslims and their houses of worship. The calls for violence originated from two separate political events in Delhi and Haridwar, on December 17 and 19. At least one member of Prime Minister Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was in attendance. Police said they have launched a hate speech investigation, but so far there has been no comment from Modi’s government.
