At Davos, billionaire George Soros tears into Narendra Modi; says nationalism in India ‘biggest and most frightening setback’

Hungarian-American financier and philanthropist George Soros criticised the Narendra Modi government at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, accusing the prime minister of “creating a Hindu nationalist state”.

“Far from being reversed, it made further headway. The biggest and most frightening setback came in India, where a democratically elected Narendra Modi is creating a Hindu nationalist state,” Soros said while speaking on nationalism.

His statements assume significance as it comes at a time when the Modi government has been facing backlash over the newly amended Citizenship Act.
