Fears in India over Modi's Hindu ideology

Some fear that opposition leader Narendra Modi's ideology of Hindu nationalism could marginalise many Indians.

    The conservative Hindu ideology of the man likely to be India's next prime minister has raised concerns of marginalisation. 

    India's general election begins next week, and opinion polls suggest opposition leader Narendra Modi is likely to become the next prime minister.

    But critics are concerned by his conservative Hindu ideology.
