Received Date:19 June 2023, Accepted Date:19 September 2023, Published Date:27 September 2023


Hate crime refers to criminal acts that are motivated by prejudice or bias towards a particular group based on factors such as race, religion, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. In recent years, India has witnessed a disturbing trend of increasing hate crime incidents targeting individuals or groups based on their gender or religion. These incidents have serious implications for the affected communities, social cohesion, and the overall well-being of the society. This research paper aims to examine the issue of rising hate crime in India, with a specific focus on the gender and religion perspectives. Hate crimes in India refer to violent or abusive acts committed against individuals or groups based on their identity, such as religion, caste, or gender. These types of crimes are often motivated by a deep-seated prejudice or bias, and can have serious physical, emotional, and social consequences for the victims and their families.
