In a criticism of Modi government in India and Trump government in the US, Martin Luther highlighted that hate crimes are on the rise in both the countries.

The son of Martin Luther King Jr. also highlighted: “A California State University research says there have been over 1,000 hate crimes in the US since the 2016 election. And here (in India), cow vigilantes kill Muslims and Dalits as the police stand by.”
