The makers of The Hour of Lynching managed to capture the mechanism of escalating violence fueled by extreme-right religious fundamentalism.

Over the past five years, Hindu nationalists have murdered nearly fifty Muslims in India accused of “cow smuggling.” An inappropriate attitude toward this animal, which is sacred to Hindus, has served as an excuse for a brutal witch hunt that is casting an ever-widening net. Emboldened by impunity, the leaders of these radicals have been openly calling for ethnic cleansing.
