More than one study estimates that nearly 120 million eligible Indian voters were removed from voter lists in past elections & in the recent general election, nearly 70 million of whom were Muslims & Dalits. In the Gujarat state elections of 2017, the BJP (Modi’s party) won by just 258 votes in Godhra—the site of a pogrom against Muslims in 2002 that left almost 1,000 Muslim dead. Nearly 1.5 million Muslim voters in that state had been denied voting rights in that election. Voter suppression is common in the US for Black & Latino voters, including in the 2016 presidential election. That’s how democratic elections are for the marginalized & oppressed.
