India's history contains centuries of diversity and coexistence between different groups.
But its present times are marked by violence and hate speech against minorities.
Some politicians, especially those with ties to the governing BJP party, are accused of inciting and promoting that violence.
Indian and global human rights watchdogs say the frequency of attacks has been on the rise since 2014 - the year Narendra Modi became Prime Minister.
Some opposition parties accuse him of ignoring the issue.
And they're warning Modi the fallout could devastate India's cultural diversity.
But will he act?
