"Tony and passing a religion be citizenship bill in the parliament. Welcome in case. You've just been a landmark judgment. As far as the dispute is concerned. Uh this was handed another victory in November involving a Hindu temple on a disputed religious site in the city of youth this time by the nation's nations epochs code twenty-seven years ago a group of hindu-nationalist store down a sixteen th century mosque causing riots. two-out India I do. Thousand people were killed mainly Muslims. The site is important to Hindus. Believe leave one of them most revered deities nor drum was born there just last month the Indian Supreme Court ruled that the site should go back to Hindus use to build a temple. The court also allowed Muslims five acres to build the mosque at another side. It would keep marriage until she. It was one of the Hindu protestors who demolished the mosque. Yeah we're very happy. That thousands of years of atonement have borne fruit. Many generations of Hindus have been struggling to get the Ram temple built at the site and welcomed the decision of the honorable Supreme Court. Our faith in the legal system has been multiplied as Hindu nationalist supporters like Santos dooby rejoiced. Many Muslims across the country. were either silent or felt betrayed. Bilan sorry auty is one of the petitioners of the case representing the Muslim side. I give the decision of the Supreme Court is welcomed by us. We've been saying for a long time and I will say it again. The Muslim community will accept the court's decision on Saturdays. Willingness to accept the court's decision. It does not mean India's other. Muslims are resigned to that some fear more violence by Hindu. Mobs who are not condemned but embraced I by government authorities. A famous example came this year when a cabinet minister was photographed treating and giving flowers to eight men who were convicted convicted of lynching a Muslim cattle seller incidents has been over the consumption of beer or kill the cows the words of a member of a Hindu cow vigilante dan cows are revered in the Hindu religion and there are numerous cases of Cowbridge. allante mobs killing unarmed men for allegedly slaughtering cows.

Sorry state: Kashmir on lockdown

"Into the Indian government all is well in the Kashmir valley but in reality life for those who live there most of whom are Muslim is far from normal there's no Internet mobile phones don't work most schools factories and offices are closed troops patrol the streets amid frequent demonstrations it began on August fifth in the Indian part of Kashmir was stripped of the special status and autonomy it enjoyed for the past seven years as part of his radical reorganization of India's most troublesome territory state was put on lockdown after two months it's unclear how the situation will end the government would like to portray things as being normal but it's far from normal Max Rodenbek is our South Asia Bureau chief you've got about seven million people living in the Kashmir valley who've had their internet and mobile phones suspended for the last two months there's a heavy a heavy presence of security forces that half a million in not a very big area a virtually every street is patrolled and their roadblocks and so on most shops and schools are closed down by virtual strike because people don't want to admit that returning to normal although this creating hardship I think so it's rather tents and heavy but actually not violent it's been peaceful but people are very upset and certainly not return to normal why is it India has done this well I think there are several layers of reasons one simple frustration I mean Kashmir has been a problem that has been an intractable for seventy years and there's a kind of frustration India's a great powerful country and it's unable to solve this small problem the border so frustrations one thing then there's also kind of ideology the current government of India is a Hindu nationalist government and one of its election promises was that it would do something about Kashmir and essentially what what the plan was was to lift the provisions that allow for certain degree of wannabe for Kashmir it doesn't actually change substantially changed things but it makes clearer India's real total control of the region how have Hindus and Muslims in the rest of India reacted to all this well the the rest of India I mean there's proportion here I mean India's one point three billion bill and the unhappy Kashmir's about seven million people so there are just so many more Indians in Kashmir's generally Indians are quite happy about what the government is has done they feel this frustration built up over years and years during the strife in Kashmir at various times at least fifty thousand people have been killed so it's a long in problematic thing the way other Indians look at Kashmir is as a problem place is problematic Muslims we have to teach them a lesson we have to teach Pakistan lesson showed who's boss here that's the government is very much played up to that so the response from from the rest of India is pretty positive and even Harland the opposition to the government felt sort of two shied from from actually opposing this move because they were afraid of being cast as unpatriotic is there no dissent from India's Muslims outside the Kashmir region well there is there's an unhappiness but the Indian Muslim community which is huge it's about one hundred ninety million people but it's also very very much divided up as the rest of India by language by region cast by all kinds of things and doesn't unite really around this Kashmir issue never they never have really united around and what about the relationship with Pakistan with whom India has had this battle over the region for so long how is it dealing with this new situation Pakistan can't really do very much about it I mean Pakistan has not very positive role in Kashmir either for many years Pakistan has funded and supplied a guerrillas who've on in from Pakistan into Kashmir and stirred up trouble Pakistan has always looked at this region as because it has a Muslim majority than it really should belonged ex-team although the people of Kashmir don't for particularly wants to belong to Pakistan either they're not happy with India Baxter so the current move by India it has a upset Pakistan because it involves a further diminish of the possibility that Kashmir might ever join Pakistan so raised tensions to a certain extent but not not to the point that India and Pakistan are likely to clash over this two reactions vary only gene supports or essentially division or powerlessness I mean are there no credible challenges to this move essentially no there's no credible challenge to India locally internationally speaking I think there's a great deal of fatigue with these kinds of problems to tell the truth you know India's a very the country and it's a rising power and I don't think there's going to be pressure in the United Nations that strong enough to do much about India and other countries that might be hostile to this move of example China will I mean India could easily point to China and what China has done to its own wieger Muslim minority which is much more shocking and outrageous than what is happening in Indian Kashmir in which case how do you see this playing out if this sort of territory the division remains in place I mean the region can't stay in lockdown forever no this is a problem and it's not clear that the government really had a endgame I mean people are increasingly frustrated the economy in Kashmir is is increasingly fragile and it's not clear how this waiting game can play out in two months with no Internet in modern society is really very very difficult it's cracking up all kinds of things including sort of medical system you can't call their their stories about people dying from lack of medical attention because they can't find the right people the right medicines and I think also there's still question how the Indian Supreme Court treat this I mean the Supreme Court in India has has a bad record for actually standing up for rights in the face of government power but there are serious constitutional questions about the way that this latest action was taken and they're serious constitutional questions also about the current kind of blockade clampdown in Kashmir there's growing apprehension India the this doesn't look too good so they may actually be a kind of reaction from inside India but for the nearer term anyway you don't see an easy and I know I'm afraid to let the people of Kashmir they've been through a lot of all these years and I'm afraid this is just another unhappy chapter for rather troubled part of the World Max Thank you very much for your time

"Constitution that protected Kashmir's autonomy and special status, for instance, this currently a case before the Indian Supreme Court aimed at getting rid of article thirty five eight that's an article that kind of ensures schmooze senatorial tournament, which means that people are not cash media residents.

"FM. This is weekend edition from NPR news. I'm Scott Simon protests erupted in southern India this week. Over the fact that three women set foot in a Hindu temple the submarine temple. It's a famous pilgrimage site that attracts thousands of devotees each year and for centuries the temple did not admit women between the ages of ten and fifty but this week three women who are in their forty s managed to enter the shrine NPR's, Laura unfair reported on the story for us last month. And now she joins us from her base in Mumbai India. Learn thanks so much for being with us. You're welcome Scott, and what sparked these protests? Well, the submarine Malla. Temple is dedicated to a celebrate deity Lord and some faithful believe that women of childbearing age could be a distraction to him. Some also believe that women who menstruate who are old enough to menstruate are impure. And in fact, after these women visited the temple this week Hindu priests did purification rituals at the shrine. We should remember that temples churches mosques. Around the world have similar restrictions. I mean, some have separate areas for women and men to pray. In other religions do have rules about what women who are menstruating can and cannot do, but this ancient temple and its rules really hit a nerve in modern India became the target of a right to pray campaign by Indian feminists. So this is a religious issue, but it's also becoming political. In fact, the Indian Supreme Court ruled back in September that the temples ban on women age ten to fifty amounts to gender discrimination and Howard Indian politicians handling this in a in a country whose politics is sometimes so divided along these lines. That's right. India's prime minister is a Hindu nationalist. So is his ruling Cardi. So this issue plays very well with his base, but the state where the temple is located Carola is ruled by communists, and they have lined up behind the women. They say they'll upholds the supreme court order and ensure women of all ages can pray there. They've even ordered. Police to escort women to the temple. But that may cost them votes. Protesters have burned effigies of careless chief minister and even the main opposition party in India congress. The party of Mahatma Gandhi is backing these Hindu nationalist protesters rather than the women, and that may be because elections are coming and polls show a majority of Indians think this temple has a right to set age restrictions on women. In fact, the supreme court now says it will review its ruling later this month, it may change its mind amid such a backlash. How do we read? What's happened? Small step towards gender equality or infringing on religious freedom. That depends on who you ask to some the fact that the these three women got into this shrine. Yes is a victory before they did. There was a feminist protest a human chain and courage in women to enter the temple. But the three who did are now under police protection in hiding for their own safety, and I can tell you I went to the temple late last year, or rather I tried to get close to it. I couldn't get a taxi driver to take me within twenty miles. I had to have a police escort Hindu men are stopping cars checking for women who are under age, fifty my hotel receptionist warned me to stay away and so many devoted. I talk to you though said they don't wanna discriminate against women. That's not their aim. They just want to practice their religion as they see fit and their freedom of religion to them means keeping women who could be menstruating away from a certain God celebrate God.

But I do think that did she can be seen as you know, the approval of the Judeo Christian concept of say the Holy Spirit or something like that. I was going to ask if you make that analogy, but I didn't I didn't want to try and twist cultures. You know, I tried to like shit. I'm so and he suffers deeply from being hurt. But he pays back that hurt to innocent. People doesn't he? I think so one of the things I wanted to explore in the book is whether or not revenge is Justice. So he'd becomes acetate. She testifies a man who is changed by what the spiritual politics to which he was not aware of something like that. And so, you know, the things that happened to him shape him and even deform him. And you know, that transformation was very interesting to me, I set out to write the novel you had a hospital stay as a youngster. Which wound up changing your life? Yes. It wasn't a continuous one continuous stay. It was you know, frequent at some point in my childhood. And my dad would tell me stories, and then when I grew up a little bit, and I was no longer seek. Yes. I used to be I discovered one day that these stories that he was telling me was got in from books, and you know, dot kind of taunt on something in me. And I became these voracious reader, and the mar- I read I think I came to writing true MVP, I would always say to myself on my, you know, family or I wish I could ride like these guy. I wish I could ride like this woman, and I was envious of this, right? As I said to have produced in my own writing. You must have read deeply into classical mythology. Yes. And also, of course, Shakespeare and Greek may and unconsciously I think my aesthetics was shaped by those. Exposure to does books the odyssey figures into this novel. A lot doesn't it? Yes, I've seen that a quick villains. Have been made between Jenin says Johnny to was in Delhi. And you're the ball. I wasn't setting out to rewrite, you know, a new version of the DC as some critics citing have said, but you know, if the Dow within that's probably a credit to the book. How do you write from the perspective of a cheese? I mean, it's hard enough to write from the perspective of a character. I've always wanted to write something, you know, that will at least. So the word that prior to the coming of the British to Nigeria we had some kind of complex systems. I feel like a, you know, there hasn't been a an African version of say Milton's paradise lost which actually explored the very foundation our principle of western civilization, which will be the free wheel or even Dan. She I get Larry's, you know, the inferno. And so I wanted to write something cosmological. And did she has been very fascinating to me. It was very difficult. It entailed a lot of research even down to actually go into shrines and interviewing you know, the last adherents of for deny were religion. Now that most Africans are combat's lead actress, sanity or. Salaam. I mean, a novelist kind of has to believe in free will doesn't. Otherwise, there's no plot. Yeah. The novel is very western. So a cartel without agency is no character. But I wanted to expo one writer novel that is not we in the western tradition can walk right in novel. Where the character is probably have the time able to have agency while have the time, you know, like principalities and metaphysical Fossey's. I'd do lean to negotiate the car tests live so in some way is probably. On chatted territory out say. She goes Obama, his new novel an orchestra of minorities. Thanks so much for being with us.

Number of women working behind the camera in Hollywood today remains small and that makes the career of Lois Weber all the more remarkable, she directed at least one hundred and thirty eight movies other shorts or feature length in the silent film era. Most your lost. But two of the most important films have been restored KU and cheese. How a mop chevik reports Lois Weber became the first American woman to direct feature length dramatic film with the merchant of Venice in nineteen fourteen in her day. She was considered one of the three great minds of the early film industry alongside DWI Griffith and Cecil b Shelley stamp who wrote the notes for the Weber DVD's says the filmmaker often took a different tack from her contemporaries, she was a very vocal advocate for cinema's ability to portray complex social issues in a popular narrative form, she considered cinema. What she called a voiceless language, and by that I think she meant cinema had an ability to convey ideas to anybody, regardless of their educational level, regardless of their command of English right at a period when there were many immigrants to the US who did not speak English as a first language. She was born in eighteen seventy nine outside. Pittsburgh to a religious middle class family. She was a child prodigy pianist who spent two years playing Oregon and avenge allies around the city Dennis Storrow and his wife, Amy Heller co founded and run milestone films, which is releasing the restored versions of Weber's movies. She started preaching on shop corners, and when she went to New York, she started working at these Salvation Army type places to help people. She was never really a preacher. But she was always an activist for the poor. This is what she said, she said in moving pictures, I have found my life's work. I find it once an outlet for my emotions and my ideals before she became a filmmaker Weber left evangelizing to toured the country as a concert pianist until one night a key broken shattered her nerve, she then left the concert stage for the theater stage and eventually in nineteen eleven directed. Her first short film historian, Shelley stamp says that early on Weber advocated for complex roles for women and for serious engagement. With social issues. She made films about the fight to abolish capital punishment about drug addiction about urban poverty about the campaign to legalize contraception Weber took up the cause of young women going to work in nineteen sixteen film shoes, which has been released by milestone with a new score..

We also follow a dramatic story of one woman's escape from violence in Cameroon with little granddaughter into and we meet a man helping to keep a dying language alive. I I to Hungary.

Seems that many Hungarians from right to left are alarmed at the policies, the Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and his feeders party of pushing through he had already increased his power to controversial extent. As far as the e u is concerned and more recently, a new Bill, which almost doubles, the hours of overtime, an employer can demand from their staff sparked demonstrations across Hungary from Budapest, Nick, THORP examines.

The riot police in full dress uniform tear gas canisters of the ready like Roman centurions. Arranged for a family photograph. It's an image which would have given the famous Hungarian architect Imre style. The mastermind of the parliament building and champion of symbolism. Pause for thought were the lines flanked by police protecting Hungarian sovereignty from the mob as the carefully scripted government. Messages would have us believe or were the lions blessing the people as they tried to retake. They're building from corrupt power hungry, mafia as the messages circling on the leaflets in the crowd suggest the roots of the protests live far away in another country with a lot of problems lines Britain at least half a million young skilled Hungarians who've left their homeland in recent years, mostly for Britain, they left for good economic reasons a minimum hourly wage four times higher than in Hungary, many others now leaving for political reasons to according to agency which finds jobs for them and interviews them beforehand.

"So so we have a problem because recently the Indian Supreme Court all the way up in Delhi. Yeah. So far away from here. Yeah. Totally don't get the cultural context, you're a Kratz in Delhi. They on fly over country. They recently ruled that you can't ban the lady folk from. This temple good. Fuck that shit. Well, yeah. I mean good, I guess, but here's the problem. There have been violence. There has been violence right surprise. Yeah. Shocking. Right violence against women in India, whose whoever is such a thing surely jet, the the first couple of women have attempted who who would ever tried to have attempted to get to this temple. So far they've gotten to the path which is the farthest that any woman has gotten in recorded history. Right. And then they were beaten or rocks were thrown people blocked. Their way monks were sitting on the stairs, chanting and keeping them out. It was it was mayhem. There were there were police on hand to theoretically helped women get to the thing. But the monks also locked the doors. Like, nobody can get in. You know, it's it's a good thing. India has no real fucking societal problems. So right. You can actually just get mad about absurd shit. Right. Like this that you can really prioritize what you're angry about this way. The shocking thing to me is. Okay. If you ask most Hindus, do you believe that this is the this deity is a real being? Yeah. That exists in reality. Like like Christians believe Jesus, right? Many of them will say no of those who say, yes what the fuck. Do. They think is going to happen. A deity can't maintain his own virginity. How is that? How is it possible that a deity someone of magic origins and consid- containing magic within them? Yeah. Would not be able to control himself. When a lady person comes into his building. Well, this is not the only shrine to this guy. And I'm willing to bet that this is not the only place in the Hindu faith, where women are not treated equally. No, absolutely not. But I mean that's starting to change. Right. Like it as we know as this story points out India, you know, now, unfortunately, right now, India has a nationalist, Hindu, nationalist. Prime minister Narendra Modi and Hindu nationalism is strong happening there right now. Right. And it is just as shitty as the Christian nationalism. That's happening in our country. Right is racist. It is it is sexist estrogen by religion. And it's driven by. Well. I mean religion is the tool that they're using right to achieve whip up the panic to whip up the anger to whip up the hatred. Boy, this truly is the worst time line. We we when we had Andrew Copson from human issue K on the show. Yeah, we talked quite a bit about the Indian constitution. And how India is of of the kind of major world secular democracies? India has in a way been the most successful model. They're great. But the paperwork is good. The paperwork is good. But but like like, we're finding in so many of these quote, unquote, secular republic's, their their wells are being tested, pretty hard, right? Now, and yeah, it's happening here, and it's terrifying. And it's happening in Turkey, which was another example in his book secularism. Yeah. About to happen in Brazil. Yeah. I don't know the Brazil is this was not harder as a secular democracy in the same way that India was because India was really brilliant model. But but look if you build a fuck temple. I don't care if a weird virgin tiger writing boy fired a fucking aero and it landed in three counties over. Imelda temple men. Women get to go. I'm sorry. I actually disagree with that thing. There's this is where my mind goes a little bit wonky. Yeah. Because if it's a private religion and your dessert, a building your own religion. You get to make whatever rules. You wanna make? You know what I mean? I I wouldn't force the Mormons to let anybody into their temple that they don't wanna let in. But I think there's shitty for like, I think it's shitty. But the thing is again, this is Hinduism is not a centralized religion. Yeah. So I guess the government like for me. I don't want the government telling religions what to do..

"To take a look at the Asian newspapers. We are joined today once again by some noth- Butterball lecturer in media in development and international journalism at so s some noth- welcome back. We start with a show a show a story from scroll in. I don't really know where to start with this headline, the supreme court, suggesting to parliament, make law to curb those with serious criminal charges entering politics. This strikes me as something that should already have been thought of sometime ago, ideally. Yes. And it has been thought of. In fact, the legislature has several provisions which try and people with serious criminal charges against them from contesting elections. But what the supreme court is expressly saying, is that the laws that you have at the moment. Are not enough and new laws have to come into place. The proliferation of in the last about thirty years of people were dubious anticipates, and one of the things remember in. Sorry, you're saying it's not just people GPS antiques and. Any number of outright convicted criminals have been elected to public office. Well at present. If you have a conviction serious conviction against you cannot contest lection India. But this is the problem is that this presumes that you're innocent until proven guilty. So and in India, again, is legal system goes on for years. And people with murder charges, rape charges, do contest, mission, Vince, but this this is an important. Direction which supreme court is taking in recent times, Andrew. Just a couple of weeks ago, there was a very important decision made on article three, seven, seven against convicting people of because of their sexual preferences. Tomorrow. There's a very important case coming up, which is an ATar which is in the biometric acquiring biometric data of Indians and they're trying will root on it and this particular case. So each time, the supreme court since suddenly taken a very measured tone and which is again going against the present government, which is right wing in nature and seems to want to curb individual freedom. Certainly supreme court seems in the last couple of months taking very strong positions level-headed positions. Again, they're saying that we are not the legislature. We cannot file loss for you, but director and giving enough direction to the legislature to come up with laws that can prevent these. Do you think we're seeing the beginnings of perhaps a slightly more activist Indian Supreme Court. Well, I guess as a occur, ollery of that a more confident Indian Supreme Court. The court has been activists in nature for quite a while. Nine. Sometimes it has gone overboard in trying to say things like we take a big decisions based on a country's demand country's conscience to lot of judicial activism has gone overboard. And for the last few few decisions which have come out of the court and big decisions. This very measured on which is very interesting to note. In fact, the the decision against article, seven, seven was like literature from five, five judges coating or SCA while shopping. However, and it was a pleasure to read tomorrow will be very important supreme court in India, which will just try and say what the individual privacy is more important or whether the government is allowed to collect data of of more than a billion individuals moving along to the Indian Express. The headlines from Trump's President Trump's speech to the general assembly today were mostly about his beating up on your own and. Indeed, that was the headline of this very program, but he did also have words to say about other countries, India among them, and India gets a rave review from the US president here, but he didn't know how to react with Indian government is reacting very positively, but they might soon find out that if Trump calls your friend might be in for trouble. Also very clear positioning of what President Trump is doing that they're moved. The Trump administration had moved very decisively against China. They're cutting of funding to Pakistan, so they want an ally in India. So this very clear rhetoric which comes this is this is not unreasonable is it does seem more natural choice of ally for the United States in that part of the world because when Trump describes India as a free society over a billion people successfully lifting countless millions out of poverty and into the middle class, obviously, that's not a terrifically nuanced chronicle of what is occurred in India, but it's not wrong. Is it. Again, needs qualification, whatever Trump on new ones. Trump and nuance doesn't go down very well, but a recent very well research article cover covering..

And the it was already built it's built about twenty years of head of budget and schedule. Okay. And there's something else, and this is on the president from Connecticut. Yes. That was a big deal. And it's also a big deal that President Trump was right? It did not create a new war in the Middle East did not create a new wave of terrorism. It did not create the new collapsing of America's friends in the Middle East. Honestly, this is one where Trump gets to say. I was right and all of the elite media were wrong.
