In what is likely to evoke sharp reactions from the main opposition party BJP and further ignite the political atmosphere just days ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, a leading international weekly has refused to back Narendra Modi as the future prime minister of India, saying that he thrives on communal hatred and promotes sectarian division.

In its strongly worded and highly explosive editorial titled "Can anyone stop Narendra Modi" published on Friday, The Economist has made a blistering attack on BJP's prime ministerial candidate and even recommended that a new Congress government led by Rahul Gandhi would still be a "less disturbing" alternative for India.

Though acknowledging Modi's highly successful track record as the Chief Minister of Gujarat and the brighter prospects of his accession to the prime minister's chair, the editorial raises serious questions on his conduct during the 2002 communal riots in his state.
