The Hindutva doctrine of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is based on ‘One religion, one identity, one language, everything one,’ which has stirred up anger and frustration among Indian minority groups. The government’s imposition of the ‘saffron agenda’ has created a security danger for minority groups. Minority groups have resisted the government's implementation of this discriminatory political objective in order to defend their identities and lend support to liberation movements. The success of these freedom movements is determined by a variety of factors, including the nature and demands of the movements, the government's response, and the country's existing political, economic, and social situations. This study analyses how freedom groups are challenging the BJP's diabolic policies, as well as the potential consequences of any government action, such as the use of force. By analysing the tactics used by various movements to resist, this study's findings reveal the overall impact of BJP’s policies on India's minority populations.
