India: Hindu extremist paramilitary march in Muslim-majority city during Eid

Members of a Hindu extremist group marched through one of India's only Muslim-majority cities during Eid celebrations. The paramilitary group the RSS marched past mosques as Muslims in Mau, Uttar Pradesh, celebrated the end of the month of fasting, Ramadan. The RSS has a long history in India and its founder MS Golwalkar was a fascist sympathiser who praised Adolf Hitler's treatment of Jews in Germany as a model for how to treat Muslims in India. The RSS paramilitary uniform is based on the Nazi and Italian fascist military uniforms, and would have been worn by Indian PM Narendra Modi and many of the most senior members of the Indian government, as the ruling BJP party is the political wing of the RSS movement.
