Events and controversies[edit]

All Hindu-Muslims conflicts/riots/violence and blasts in Muslim-dominated areas are WP:OR labelled as Hindu Nationalism. So removing them, please add references here to prove they are thought to be acts of Hindu Nationalism movements before adding.--Redtigerxyz Talk 13:15, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Please, add sources to prove that Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Sushma Swaraj are not labelled as Hindu nationalist while BJP is.--Benfold (talk) 21:21, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
Any leader or event associated with BJP can be labelled as Hindu nationalist is WP:OR. Is BJP Minority Morcha "Hindu nationalist" too? Please provide WP:RS that say explicitly that the events and people are directly connected to "Hindu nationalist" activities. --Redtigerxyz Talk 16:43, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
The events and controversies are not added as only related to BJP but those are also related to other nationalist parties of India like Abhinav Bharat, Shiv Sena etc. Kindly, check each of the listed events to get WP:RS. The attacks perpetrated by Hindu nationalist groups are events of Hindu nationalism and that is what this template describes.--Benfold (talk) 15:31, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
"The attacks perpetrated by Hindu nationalist groups are events of Hindu nationalism" is WP:POV pushing and WP:OR. Any leader/activities/events(read riots)/controversies related to "Hindu nationalist" party may/may not be a "Hindu nationalist" activity. Labelling all of them as "Hindu nationalist" is WP:OR. Hindu-majority Congress leaders were involved in anti-Sikh riots. Is it "Hindu nationalist" too? References clearly call Savarkar, Gowalkar as "Hindu nationalist". They need to be added. "Babri Mosque" Demolition is called as "Hindu nationalist" by references. I should be added. But "Ishrat Jahan case" is not directly called "Hindu nationalist" event. You are deducing it, unintentionally doing WP:OR. "Ishrat Jahan case" is a controversy related to BJP. BJP is Hindu nationalist. Hence Ishrat Jahan case is "Hindu nationalist" controversy. Please add references to show that the events and people are directly connected to "Hindu nationalist" activities and then add them in the template. --Redtigerxyz Talk 12:08, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
