Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi claims victory as India’s next Prime Minister [VIDEO]

Narendra Modi, the leader of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, claimed victory as India’s next Prime Minister on Friday, bringing to power a man whose controversial past at one point led the United States to deny him a visa.
Official results were expected late Friday.
Viewed as pro-business, Modi, 63, has pledged reforms to revive the nation’s flagging economy.
But his past is not without controversy. Throughout his campaign, his relationship with the country’s huge Muslim minority came under scrutiny.
