Résumé:   [en] The personalities our previous portraits explored were all from the Middle East. We are now entering a less familiar territory with the Indian Prime Minister, Mr Modi. In contrast to the personalities analysed previously the latter cannot be categorized as a dictator. However, Christophe Jaffrelot, a great specialist of India, explains how Narendra Modi, in the name of Hindu nationalist ideology, tends to establish an "ethnic democracy", in which members of ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities would be labeled as second-class citizens.
