Although India is called “the world’s biggest democracy”, it has been facing the rise of communalism in the latest years. In this research, I am going to touch upon the issue of Hindu and Muslim communalism, as these two confessions are the largest in India, and, for a conservative country, two major powers as well. This is a concept, or an ideology prevailing not only in politics but also in minds of thousands of Indians, which is even more important. In South Asia, communalism defines the differences between religious and ethnic communities’ interests.
