"In fact those Thessalonians were such blabbermouths for Jesus, Paul said his team didn't need to say anything. It seemed everyone they met had already heard about Jesus from those Thessalonians. Before we had made the decision to move, I had been thinking about doing something unusual. That space between the doors, the entrance and then the fellowship area, the gathering area, that small space there as we come in, that's called the narthex or foyer or vegetable, strange names, but that's what it's called. I had the idea about printing some words in large bold letters above those doors, the people could see them going out. I had the idea of printing in large bold letters above those doors these words. The church has left the building. That's a take off from the famous Elvis has left the building. The church is people. The church is not this building. We are the church and after we have met here together to worship God on Sunday mornings then our job is to leave this building. Our job is to get out there in the market place and neighborhoods and be aggressive witnesses for Jesus. D .L. Moody made the statement, I see the world as a wrecked ship. God gave me a lifeboat and said Moody save all you can and he did. There were more than a million converts in his crusades, his evangelistic crusades and although I cannot document this number it is said that one on one Mr. Moody personally prayed with 70 ,000 people to receive Jesus Christ. An evangelistic church starts with an evangelistic pastor. 1 Timothy 4 verse 5, Paul said this, but you be watchful in all things. Endure afflictions. Notice do the work of an evangelist. Timothy was a pastor of a congregation just as I am and as his spiritual mentor Paul told him Timothy do the work of an evangelist. Not be an evangelist per say, but do the work of an evangelist, do what an evangelist does. And what does an evangelist do? An evangelist evangelizes. A pastor should set the bar high. He should be an example to his people and he should be an evangelist, a personal evangelist. I would challenge the search team as a search were to narrow down the candidates for those that are serious considerations. I would challenge the team to ask that person this question. Give us the name of three people you have personally led to Jesus Christ in the last six months. I want details. Tell us how you pursued them for Christ and where are they now. Pose that question and then sit back and prepare to be disappointed.

In this evacuation. There was a grandmother in a wheelchair who arrived in a C 17 from Kabul after being separated from her sons. She couldn't remember her last name. You found her kids.

The Taliban side sought the meeting, which took place in the Indian compound in Doha, the capital of Qatar. Sean Guard reports from New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reportedly held a high level meeting on Afghanistan. The power struggles inside Taliban and Pakistan's suspected role in propping up a government in Afghanistan is believed to be a major concern for New Delhi. Experts one. The Taliban's rights could also lead to resurgence of terrorist activities in India's Kashmir. Similar concerns could also be raised in the BRICs summit on Thursday. The meeting is being chaired by Mr Moody and will be attended by his counterparts from Brazil, South Africa, China and Russia. Both Russia and India. Among them have already raised concerns about the Taliban. But the Max is believed that China too, will have a major role to play due to its strong relations with Pakistan. Sound Good New Delhi. After the Biden administration finished one of the largest airlifts in the nation's history. On August 30th organizations helping Afghans arriving in the United States scrambled to ramp up operations following years of downsizing. Due to the Trump Administration slashed refugee programs as Afghans flow into the country. The organizations are asking me Biden administration to increase funding to help them recover and expand operations to accommodate the refugees. The refugees. Resettlement agencies helped transport individuals and families from the airport, provide them with housing and aid them with finding employment. And they're facing numbers not seen in the last four years. Last year, the Trump Administration slashed refugee admissions to and historically low ceiling, capping the number allowed in the country at 15,000. 3000 people fewer than the previous fiscal year and roughly 55,000 fewer than the last cap set by former President Obama. That caused reductions and government funding of refugee organizations, which receive federal funding per refugee. They help with resettlement. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says most of the 40,000 refugees who have arrived from the flights out of Kabul are Afghans, and the total number is expected to surpass 50,000 in the coming days and weeks. Of the approximately 40,000 people. We have admitted to the United States. Approximately 13% have been U. S citizens. Approximately 8% have been lawful permanent residents and approximately 79%. Have been a special immigrant visa holders. Special immigrant visa applicants other vulnerable Afghan nationals. Communities and businesses across the nation have stepped up to donate money or items and offer volunteer services to help support the refugee organizations. As they grapple with the sudden influx of refugees. Airbnb announced it will provide free housing to 20,000 Afghan refugees worldwide. And Wal Mart made a pledge to donate $1 million to three organizations helping to resettle refugees, veterans and their families. But elements of the right wing and many personalities on the Fox news network like Tucker Carlson, Are attacking the admission of Afghan refugees as potential terrorists. Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas The Department of Homeland Security remains ever vigilant against attempts by foreign adversaries to exploit vulnerable populations as a means of gaining access to the U. S. For nefarious purposes, The federal government has established a robust screening and vetting architecture with a dual goals of protecting the homeland and providing protections. For vulnerable Afghans. In partnership with federal agencies. We have built the security and vetting system to operate in the transit countries abroad in those transit countries. We conduct our biometric and biographic screening. This includes checking against multiple agencies records. Our policy is not to board flights to the United States until they are cleared. New requirements issued by the Trump Administration. For S I V s the special issue visas, which Afghans who cooperated with the US occupying forces needed to get out of Afghanistan, as the insurgent Taliban took over proved to be a difficult, often an impossible reach. For many of the translators, fixers and others who worked with American troops. U. S officials and with non governmental organizations. Mideast expert Philip Venice of the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D. C. Told Phillip Mulberry of the Sunday show. That was by design also know now that those guys that the that 15 step process that you're talking about for these special visas Wasn't just because it was a bureaucratic nightmare. It wasn't just sort of a mess. It was done deliberately under the leadership of Stephen Miller, the the xenophobic Anti immigrant Extremist in the in the Trump administration who designed this thing, and there's papers that have now come out documenting that he did it deliberately to make it impossible. The goal wasn't To make sure that everybody who comes is okay and is vetted. The goal was to make sure that as few people as possible come It was designed to keep people out not to welcome people in well. This is in keeping with the Tucker Carlson theory that the Democrats are welcoming immigrants from all over the planet. So that they can stack the voter rolls and elect Democrats and, um, this is, uh Tucker Carlson's theory, which has been taken up now it used to be about Central Americans at the U. S. Borders with Mexico. Now it's about Afghans and they're acting as though these Afghan people are Not vetted that they There are terrorists among them. You know, it scared, scared, scared All those Fox viewers are now totally petrified that that an Afghan is going to move in next door to them and slit their throat in the middle of the night. Well, yes, And I would say the end is people in this country surprised me all the time, and we saw it..

"Oh somebody who was a very rogue government. Lackey mr mohandas by. He goes on one of india's leading news channel times now and called me by name a watcher journalists for printing pictures of commit dorian on the cover of time magazine and he calls and time times doesn't dia one hour show on how international media by the new york times wall street journal limo australian. Everybody seems to have an agenda and ask somebody who has often been woken of my criticism of narendra movie. I seem to have been big dog for the stars that you know you. And it's not before time with me in a time magazine. Kabul has been picked up artist. The seed of order time magazine cover call on moby which was scored development in chief. I remember he said onto that his oc. I got his his residency. Steak card to india was booked. That's reasons known best to him but he says it was censorship in my case. I know there's nothing that they have done related but everything seems to have started with tool saying Investigate runner you are tagging various agencies. Saying please send someone to and then. Ironically someone's come to me so i wonder if these twitter trolls these right-wingers i literally running the dave. I'm i'm clearly clearly. Paying the price of this of my reporters. During the second wave of the variant. Because a me and multiple other journalists robbing stellar reporting. Some of a lot of journalists have been putting in the end india story that the world needs to know an. I spoke about the undercutting of feels that the way deaths in india were being. I spoke on your show as well on the podcast christina. Christiane for show. I went on bbc. Every news journal and i spoke about what i saw on the ground. Now that's what journalists need to do. They need to speak to power. I have done nothing I heard it in kabul which was which of which was widely read so it is not some pink that i have reported on previous regimes. Also in the congress regime before narendra modi was involved. I've criticized earlier james. Also that is my job as a journalist. I'm not he'll to be somebody's cheerleader. I'm here as a as a true patriot of this country. My job democracy speak for people of this country. Not what those who go on me so i. I was speaking for the people of this country. I was giving them voice. I was being a voice for the voiceless. Never did i never did. I think that there'd be a backlash of this nature. I mean it's interesting to me too because in render mody uses twitter raw to great effect as His his following and yet here he is kind of trying to make twitter enemy and control it render mody courts positive Coverage from time magazine. So so it's very interesting about this kind of blend of of someone who kind of got elected in a democracy and wants to use the organs of the media to suit himself while controlling them. It feels like a a a much more a particularly with twitter where he's kind of essentially aiming to be able to determine what's on the platform and it feels like he's trying to turn these you know what what are usually seen as democratic institutions the media right into kind of an authoritarian mouthpiece. In a away absolutely. I mean i am not. I am not a little bit sympathetic towards to adopt. Because i'm like you guys have been nearly jumps all over the world so i have no sympathy for that matter but i do believe that what is happening. But as the government's reaction to puerto is basically an attack on free speech now indians will really celebrating and the world celebrating when twitter suspended the account of donald from so if if twitter on flags the tweets of bjp ministers of ministers in that government Who are publishing fake news and on twitter leibels it as manipulated leader that should not be labeled a crime that is not a crime and a fact checking up a affecting that site in india or old news published an indemnity on how of the ruling party published fake reduced which are later sheridan widow. There was an offensive against old news for a four pack check and labeling them as as kind of enablers of the opposition niebler twitter and running a foreign agenda so it seems like the government is trying to hit too many targets with the same store. And it's trying to attack a target to strike dive journalist. Who have been dissenters Mr moody to decide for himself. Ricky speaks at the g. Seven summit side docs about freedom of speech. Freedom of expression talks about not censoring internet. Not censoring talking about democracy values but here on the other hand you are punishing people for one pre selectively. You are sending summons to journalists. I need to understand what kind of free speech is this. And why should i. I am i know for a fact ben that i'm giving this interview and this was published. It's going to be a backlash accused of of some kind. But i'm speaking. I know that it will be a backlash suit chosen to speak to you today because my silence has for far too long. Been seen as my complicity. My silence is complicity. I have been trying to cooperate with the law. I respect the law of the land. Which is why. I've been silent for the last three weeks. But i had to speak out the washington post and a half to speak to you because my silence has been construed as somebody who has taken the sponsor ability or actually maligning more the somebody who's actually spreading community harmony in the country. My silence is enabling freak news and the about this in dire keys. My silence is making sure that i come across as an accused rather than a victim. So i'm breaking my silence. I know there will be consequences. I know that there could be possible. Consequences from the government. There could be consequences from the investigating agency. There could be consequences for my family. But that's what journalism is about. We do not be do not weaken northwest science by imitation. And if these people who are trying to silence me believe that they can intimidate me. Then i would not be doing the journalism all this while. I'm doing it's a joyous meet. How do you. How do you make that choice. I'm sure a lot of people listening around on the you're just you're operating like journalists and a democracy have done anything different than angels in any democracy would do you report on things you. Sometimes you comment on things have pins about things. None of which are outside of like really the normal discourse in most democracies in yet it feels like the whole world is changing around you. But but how do you get that motivation to to speak out and to keep going. I mean And to take take those risks. Where where does it come from. I don't know. Ben honestly somedays. I do break down like today i was. I was at the police station as dealing with my mom. My mom my mom calling me saying you died more so when you call you to check. You're okay because you're going to the cop because you're sitting at the investigation agency yesterday before daily. My sister's calling saying listen. I honestly i notice my brothers calling because my lawyers back in bombay accordion you know. What is it really worth it. Let me just leave comfortable life and just take a fellowship and goes up and just disappear but then are people who write emails to me. Saying the theory of open me and i see me and adult. Many unsung journalist local media who who might be censored gatekeepers as the real pope in a country..

"India news. Now and you've got an early onset monsoon which has come a few days ahead of Ahead of schedule Some exciting news from ahmedabad Narendra modi of course under increasing pressure and criticism for his handling of the covy cross issues of human rights and religious freedom Well there's only one thing for it in the situation. That olympic bid and are made about Could be Gearing up for an olympic bid the city where as disgust on recent beatles. One hundred thirty thousand capacity cricket stadium was named after a serving prime minister rather than for example a cricketer Because well just because Is india excited at the prospect of chucking ridiculous amount of money down the drain. Foale elaborate school. Stay if i may just lay aside. London two thousand twelve for one minute. Well as you know promised is a very ambitious person and you know. His economics has been called modine by many because he's transformed so many economic things in the country so for longtime he's been really hopeful for the olympics just so that the world could combine the word olympics and come up with something however one of the people involved in the bid said we've got only this one stadium problem if you're going to have a range of events. Add another another person was the government did say we're hopeful but fortunately for us the next four olympics. Rt could. I think that there is optimism but the optimism of the fact that the people that have been given the responsibility to get us the olympics would be long dead when you're ready to be so they're hoping this goes away before they're supposedly comes on them but you know i'm about his prime minister these city and he's already built himself a cricket stadium there which is the world's largest so i wouldn't be surprised if we did our own olympics with a set of games that were entirely invented by the prime minister. You're the moody lympics which features some sort of cross section between triathlon and the short but and gujarati poetry reading and we'll invite some countries they can come. They cannot come. It doesn't matter like we said everyone responsible organizing and now we'll be dead rather they were looking at the twenty thirty six games as a possibility now. Olympics is in years ending in the numbers three and six. I have a bit of a checkered past when it comes to not being used as vehicles for political propaganda I'm sure mr moody will be looking to correct tradition rollin to Emphatically confirm it. But you do think An alicea australia's had Two two olympics nineteen fifty-six in two thousand. I mean do you think it's time for the ioc to olympic sister cities regardless of whether they want the more not just You know it should be almost like jerry service where city just has to step up to the plate and provide support for the world. Well certainly i think as we've all Power power corrupts and the only way to counteract the sort of terrible corruption in in the olympic. Connah's fear is is rather than letting countries bribe their way into ownership of olympics is as you say just attribute the olympics to wherever the shot put portfolio. Just get a big world map and throw a rock at it and lands. If it's in the middle of the ocean people are going to have to learn how to swim on water. I think he lympics truly fair but they did try. Try that The getting the world throwing a big rocketed With the first dinosaur olympics and when tragically tragically wrong The problem of you know the richer countries get to prepare their athletes. More and there are people are working towards this thing for four years or eight years or twelve years and they know what the target is. I think we should just call snap olympics in random locations. Br should it be also. That may maybe the olympics being something that is once every four years. It's just an ongoing process where people just post up their athletic achievements and You know i mean. Obviously it'd be a bit. Tricky to check if elsie aged eighty three has really run the hundred and eight point four seconds but I think it would. It would make it more democrat and answer more the present sport in a way that young people more familiar with of just you know posting shit online. I i agree. I i still hold with my drop. Someone out of the sky pointed to people and go you run champion. Yeah i mean brings a certain fluidity to the olympics rather than every number of years. And we've done that a little bit. If you remember we had the commonwealth games in india which corrupted cetera. Who's in the news for that. But now it's all done and if you daily there's a big sign that says we are welcoming large marriage parties to the commonwealth swimming pools again. It's fluid right. It keeps it going so the pool is still there. If you're a large family to get married you've got millipedes swimming pool. Their thought which was used for the commonwealth games and have water in it currently currently not. Won't if you choose to get married there but again it didn't end with the olympics.

"Go with the Indian government has been widely criticized for allowing election rallies and religious festivals to go ahead this year, even as covert infections were rising. The Election Commission of India is now Bandel victory processions and celebrations after the election results are declared and you could hear that was already being disobeyed in West Bangor, but the easy I itself Has been condemned by the high court in the dress, which accused it of being singularly responsible for the second week of covert after failing to enforce covert restrictions during campaigning on the court even went so far as to say the commission. Should be booked for murder. To discuss further this deadly collision between the virus and politics. I was joined earlier by Sandy boy author and radio hosting Kolkata on near Church. Audrey, veteran political commentator and columnist. She's just outside Delhi. Does she think the criticism of the Election commission is justified? Well, the criticism has been made, and the criticism has also been that investing ball. It was an eight ft election. It could have been done in one or two phases, and some of the party's asked for the faces to be compressed. But of course, the Election commission did not listen. The other factor that is coming in for criticism is the way the prime minister the home minister there. Other ministers, then child party machinery was camping in this one state and prime minister doing Order that doesn't meeting the home and he said to wait 27 meetings. It was like a life and get back. He being fought investment goals. There is the life and death battle was raging elsewhere in India, to which your top leadership should have given attention, but was their intention was actually focused on this one state. I was just going to say it was almost as if In India. There wasn't a bubble in which the elections was happening. And then there was the rest of the country. And we had this feeling that never the Twain shall meet. The Election Commission finally started in forcing guidelines. But this was, you know, long after the horse has left the stable city or does the election commission off India have the power, though to enforce covert safety rules like mass sanitizers and distancing during campaigning? I mean, it's not as if I get the impression That most Indians observe such rules anyway. Nature. No, that is true. Therefore, you needed the election Commission talked about it. Of course in the Camilla. This religious festival that was held from millions of people came again. The rules were sighted on, do you? You have millions of people and people not wearing off you. Some 100,000 policemen cannot enforce it short of there being a clash. So one had to look at the scale of these meetings on the gatherings that certain violations were going to be there and that you would have its own consequences. Now, you know, the Election commission has been wrapped. The high court is wrapped the center today in such strong language, saying Enough is enough. What is going above our heads. And if you say certain metric tons of both oxygen are going to be supplied to the capital of the country, and you supply much less saying there are not the tankers, it's your job to provide the tankers you are, after all, the government of India. But what impact is going to have the court this high courts have bean you know, wrapping the governments and very strong language, But that decision is still not coming on every day Be a tearing off friends and colleagues dying, said Deb Roy. How do you think the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has conducted himself over the past couple of months is the pandemic has worsened in India? Julian, I think blaming Mr Moody is easy. Because ultimately the buck does stop with him, But I would not let everyone else off the hook, either. I mean, this has been great failure on all parts. I mean, it is not suggest. Mr Moody or his government who might have gotten complacent, thinking that India had dodged the bullet. Or perhaps if you developed immunity, the rest of the country did did that as well. I know friends, families, You know, we were out having going to not just we might talk about the Camilla. But there were lots of people in my own city going to big weddings with hundreds and hundreds of people. You know, people we're going for the develop parties and New Year's Eve parties. People really thought that India Had dodged the bullet, and in a sense, this is a sort of moral failure on all our parts. I think there was an article recently in the Atlantic, which pointed out that people off my class have in general. Sort of ignore public health because they think that's for the poor. The state run where, as we go to a fancy private hospitals, which have sprung up all over the country, and it's like we've created bubbles off private everything here, including helps there and cause it has burst that bubble, and you realize that you're as vulnerable in an exclusive gated community in a place like Google, where a neuter lives. As in a slum. Both are hotbeds off something like covert. When the virus gets loose nature would you go along with that? Look, I think more the has been a strong leader is being a leader known to deliver that image of his is contented. Let's be honest. It is not more the alone into the state governments also responsible, but as the top Has some tips is where the buck stops. Yes, his leadership has been found wanting, and secondly, the failure off the health system over the years.

Uh the other thing I would point out is that one gets the sense that there's an enthusiasm for and and trust in the vaccine that you don't see in other countries. So I think the totality that is allowed for a really effective process and Um so effective, in fact that it in the point faster than planned in town. They've had to slow down a bit to get them. Next sort of installment of those vaccines in the other thing has happened since, though, is there's been another lockdown in Israel because I've seen another variant of the of the vaccination. So I think it also really gets that some of the challenges that come with Trying to get ahead of this vaccine. Because here is a country that relative to almost any other country. The world was incredibly effective at just just distributing the vaccine. And yet the vaccine in this new variant presented new challenges. Paul What about India? Another country very hard hit by the virus. We know this week they granted emergency approval for covert vaccines. Other than the massive task of delivering a vaccine to a country with a population of 1.3 billion. What's the story around that effort in India into developing its own vaccine? Yeah. I mean, there's been some concerns in India that the approval came too quickly before the data was properly checked by everyone. There's also some concern through some groups that the Of us kind of politicization of the production of the vaccine in the way that they see that the kind of Hindu nationalist government of Mr Moody wanted to be seen. The India would be creating his own vaccine. That the big thing for India obviously he doesn't have a very good Refrigeration system network, So for them, it's important that they have a vaccine like the one produced by in Oxford, and that can be kept in a normal fridge rather than You know, transferred around that minus 70 or 80 degrees, So it's important for India to have a vaccine in large numbers that actually could be easily moved around, and that's why I think they've pushed forward. With their own plans. I mean, they are also manufacturing the Oxford vaccine for India and for the rest of the world. It's a big place of manufacture for the drugs, But I think you know in just got a massive population. It does need to do something, and I suspect that they just felt they had to crack on with it. Because every day they delayed were lives potentially being lost. Well, they do have a massive population and Paul we should point out India's currently second in the world and infections behind the U. S. A third in the world and deaths behind the U. S and Brazil. Put this unique positioning this place. This fact that they are both producing the vaccine there and working to get it out quickly could that effort catapult them ahead of other nations that are still struggling to contain the pandemic? I think the big problem that India has is social distancing is almost impossible. You have large joint families in many areas of the country most out of the country. The open centers are incredibly dense. People are poor people. There is no social security system in India that allows people not to go toe work. Basically, it's really, really difficult for India to get a grip on something that is this much this large. On basically spread by people being together because in India, everybody used together whether they want to be our not so It's a tough thing for them. And I you could understand why they're saying, Look, we've just got to get on with this because we can't wait very much longer, because you know it will sweep through our population. James. I want to ask you about South Africa because scientists are now expressing concerns about a new mutation of the virus. They're seeing their what is worrying them about what they're seeing in this development. We're touring them is that it shows that characteristics that are similar to the one that we found in the in the UK recently and as we all know, and you guys know better than me. That strain has just run like like wildfire through through Great Britain and caused Britain to announce a six week total lockdown again, which is You know very, very worrisome because the South African strain seems to be like the UK strain much more contagious, not not necessarily more more deadly. But if many more people get it because it's more contagious than a certain percentage of those people will die. So it threatens overwhelm health systems s. Oh, they're very worried about. It's already that dominant strain throughout much of South Africa. It's appeared in Austria, Norway, Japan. They even seen it in UK, So the UK government has banned flights now from South Africa. So we're seeing this this virus mutate. That's not unusual. And maybe we're lucky, and I'm trying to think that it's not..

"What challenges are you seeing in your field right now? Tell us your story. 8552361, a one a You can send us an audio file to with our APP won a box pop, and we'll share some of your stories. Monday on one, eh? Let's get back to the Friday news round up now with Paul Dano, our Washington bureau chief for the BBC. James Kit Fields, senior fellow at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, and Nancy Yousef, who covers National security for The Wall Street Journal. I got some new numbers that now tell us how well or how badly some countries air doing in the race to deliver a covert vaccine. The metric being used here by Oxford University is the total number of vaccination doses administered for every 100 people in their populations. So here they are for China. It's 0.3 for Germany. It 0.5 for the U. S. It's 1.8, the U. K 1.9 and for Israel, it's 18.4. That is 18.4 not 1.84. Nancy. What is Israel doing that The rest of the world is that Well, I should point out not only said at 18 point for the majority that happened within the first three weeks of the vaccine distribution, So it really was remarkable and also that 18.4 is outside of haired territories occupied territories because that just reaches that happened in the Palestinian areas. To your question. There. It Z unique in a number of ways. It's a smaller population, smaller geography, and they have a really effective healthcare system that is digitized and so they're able to reach populations quickly and effectively and in the system that has worked for them. The other thing I would point out is that one gets the sense that there's an enthusiasm for and and trust in the vaccine that you don't see in other countries.

India opposition seeks probe into Facebook's ties with Modi's BJP

One nation, under gods? Indias divisive temple
"Off. Today India's Prime Minister Narendra. Modi. Traveled to the northeastern city of yoga which was hung with saffron flags and more than one hundred, thousand jobs. He came to lay the first stone of temple to Rahm incarnation of the Hindu God vishnu with believed was born in the city. This isn't the standard fare of a politician pressing the flesh for a photo op. It fulfils a promise Mr Moody made as a young politician to return to iota only when construction on a new temple began. Key. Speech at the dedication broadcast into the whole country he said the temple would be a symbol of unity that the weight of centuries and today. Agreement nation. Idea A symbol of unity. It is not the weight of centuries as Mr Moody and his BJP party see it goes back to the founding of a mosque on the site that was razed to the ground nearly thirty years ago. When we're talking about a Yoda today, we're talking about a very specific place just a couple of acres off the center of town where there was a great big mosque built in the sixteenth century and destroyed by Hindu activists in nineteen ninety-two. Alex. TREBEK's is the economists India correspondent based in Delhi the site of that former mosque is what's under contention? It's been the most controversial. Acre. In all of India. Ever since and the question is whether or not Hindus may bill the temple to Rahm right there and so how did things progressive since nineteen ninety two when the the mosque was destroyed how does that end up as a temple concentration today? It's been a terribly. Tortuous story through the courts after decades of legal stasis and very bizarre humiliation the supreme. Court. Last November, few months after Narendra Modi Wins, wapping reelection decides that the most crucial part of the ground ought to be given to the Hindus go ahead and build the temple that you've been clamoring for these decades. The court noted that the demolition of the mosque illegal in sort of compensation that no one appreciated very much allocated several acres of idle land outside the town to Muslims. In effect, the court just gave the Hindus white they had wanted and I mean the Hindu nationalists, the very groups that had clamored for the destruction of the mosque and eighty is a ninety S. And so what precisely is happening today then so today is the last of three days of the ceremony. Put. In which people most notably the prime minister are doing various prayers, offering ritual sacrifices, and so on. Around the site itself most spectacularly in the middle of all the Prime Minister Narendra. Modi ritually lifted into place the forty kilograms silver brick, which serves as temples foundation stone. Now it's consecrated and all its left is to keep on raising money and build the actual structure itself and what's the reaction been from Muslims about this this contentious building. You know in a way Muslims and everyone cares about civil rights and the secular foundation of India knows what to say no. One's happy about it. firebrand Muslim leader in Parliament Assadi. Noisy has criticized the prime minister going to a religious event and it's indeed striking that the prime minister should be there on the temple grounds with a bunch of priests and Politicos all mixed in as if they were a single class, it's shocking if you've been sleeping under a rock as India's changed in recent years and in fact, I was Struck that there have been no mass protests by Muslim groups either after the Supreme Court's decision last November nor today it doesn't mean they're happy about it. But at this point, the thing to protest, we talked a lot about Narendra Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism I. Guess This is kind of a pinnacle. Then for his aims I mean what? What does this mean for him and his party it is a pinnacle of sorts but I think it's more important to look at this as the end of a long first stage of Hindu nationalism. Movement. In India. We're looking at something more like a capstone than a foundation stone and at the same time this date August fifth was chosen for quite obvious reason. It's the first anniversary of this government very bold move to strip the state of jump in Kashmir India's only Muslim state a year ago of its status as a state and rule it directly from Delhi that was one of the main three goals that the Hindu nationalist movement had till. Now now, the third of those goals creating a uniform civil code that would bind. Muslim family law into line with Hindu and secular family law governs most of the rest of India is a less inspiring goal and it's been half accomplished. Already what Mr Moody is going to need in future is another another series of rallying cries like build the temple and where he's GonNa find them it's just not obvious at this point. So today's ceremony is is not a cause for for great triumph. This is this is not the the the end of this long road for the Jay he's hindu-nationalist goals and therefore mission accomplished. This is a triumph. Yes. By all rights Mr, Modi a good one to be taking the victory lap for his party is ideologically movement but that's also very backwards looking Mr Moody was elected with a terrific share of the parliamentary seats in two thousand fourteen in the first place. Because of these hindu-nationalist goals which attracted the devotion of his base, but because Indians were eager for change for economic development and good technocratic governance of a sort that he seemed specially poised to offer, there are various reforms for which he and his government can claim credit over the past six years. But there are many many more disappointments and in particular over the past two years say before the covid nineteen pandemic and then much much worse since it's begun, India's facing an economic crisis, it's every indicator is worse than they've been in a generation. So there's GonNa be a very strongly felt need. A week the opposition to come up with some way of rallying the country some nationalistic theme or series of themes to distract from the sort of impasse in India finds itself had economically this Hindu. Nationalist ideology offers no guidance towards what India's trade policy ought to be say or how environmental law to be fixed or scrapped. They've got a steady ideology, but it's not tacked onto any particular policies at this point i. think that the government we have in place right now strong government but in dark turbulent times is going to be almost desperate to find something to replace the impetus with. Altogether, though these changes that have already gone through, do you think it chips away at the basis of modern India's government? The the idea that religion shouldn't be a part of it. Yeah I think that India as we know it maybe as an idea we almost to retire Mahatma? Gandhi. Still on on every currency note but this is not Ghandi's India anymore you might almost say that the the anti-secularist of one it's now very ordinary to see symbols of state power mixed with. Symbols of sectarian dominance over the hindu-majority expressing itself often revanchist terms, which is why this template a Yoda really does. Alex thanks very much for joining US Jason. Thanks very much.
Indian PM Defends Kashmir Changes In Independence Day Speech
"Prime minister narendra modi has spoken about his decision to strip cashier off its special status in his independence day speech mr moody instead kashmir will play an important role in india's development however narendra modi made no reference to the communications blackout imposed in kashmir muir last week
The Latest on the Kashmir status
"We looked the heating tensions between two major u._s. Allies a nuclear armed nations india and pakistan. It all kicked off on monday. When the indian prime minister narendra modi announced that he was removing kashmir's special status from the indian constitution putting its autonomy in peril in an address to the nation today the indian prime minister doubled down saying that his actions would free cash of terrorism in a nutshell kashmir is a contentious piece of land split split mostly between india and pakistan and they have fought three wars over it already. The pakistani government is responding so far by suspending trade with its neighbor the and downgrading diplomatic relations as this tense standoff develops we have asked for indian officials to join us but they've so far declined and i'm joined now by pakistan's ambassador the to the united nations me lodhi ambassador. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. How serious is this in the view of your government. I don't just mean politically for your government but regionally and what might do given the tension between your ought to nations christian. Let's i get the facts straight. How was this crisis triggered. It was triggered by illegal eagle annexation by the indian government off the state of jammu in kashmir which is an internationally recognized dispute in fact where i sit at the united the nation's it is a dispute that is functionally on the u._n. Security council agenda because there are a series of u._n. Security council resolutions that have of course on india to allow the people of jammu in kashmir to freely determine their destiny through a so the crisis is triggered by an illegal an illegitimate action by india and let's just get the rest of the facts straight. The facts are that there is a blanket curfew in occupy genuine cushman people. There are locked up. It's called a lock down which has entered its fourth david. Actually this has been a prolonged lockdown. These people have been deprived tribe of the liberty for seventy years or more now. They're going to be deprived of their identity because the action by the indian government what does it actually do. Ooh what it does is to also allow the indian government to bring about demographic changes in dublin kushner and therefore to really really threaten the identity of the kashmiri people as far as my government is concerned and my prime minister and my country's concern. We reject this move. We heard what prime hi mr moody said just a few hours ago and it was a dishonest deceitful and disingenuous justification of their action which has no basis in law and it's certainly flouts in flagrant violation. Security council has been ambassador. Let me ask you this. Let me ask because those are very very tough words. You're using you are the u._n. Ambassador you've just reminded us all how this is enshrined in international law given the dispute you should be resolved according to the international community so what is the united nations and the security council going to do about this so they taking it up well. I have been in meetings with top officials and i have reminded them of their responsibility. Pakistan has going to go to the security council. It is going to remind mind the security council and its members indeed all of the united nations of its responsibility and what is that responsibility that responsibility is to ensure and let me say to christiane for your viewers and important resolution. It's called resolution thirty eight of the security council and the paragraph two of that resolution says a country does not have the right to materially change the situation in cushman and that's precisely what the indian government it has done so my country wants a peaceful settlement of this issue. We've always called for a negotiated settlement which is an accordance with security council resolutions russians and in accordance with the wishes of the schmead people. Let's not forget the issue is about people it's about the people who have been deprived of their right to live the way they want to be governed the way they want to end today even pro indian politicians in in kashmir have been locked up so if prime minister narendra modi's says that this is in the interests of the jungle in kashmir people the question he has to answer is why do you have to lock up the entire state of genuine kashmir why because no cash media will accept what the indian government has done a we we we. We don't accept what the indian government has done. We checked it and we'll go to the council and we'll make all these points at the council and we will insist that the council implement its own resolutions because i think the choice right now is do we want to live in a rules-based world where international law supreme or do we want to live in a world which is ruled by the law of the jungle and this is what india has done it his floated international law and it has flouted security council resolutions. You mentioned lockdown and lock up. We've heard reports that opposition politicians in in jammu kashmir have been arrested and as you say landlines are down. The internet is down. Mobile phone is down very very difficult to get an idea of exactly what's happening on the ground there but i do want to ask you because the whole world knows that this piece of disputed land has been the cause of three wars between between your nations and today your army chief the the pakistani army chief said that the country would do all that's necessary go to any extent to support cash mary's and then the foreign minister said the pakistan is not looking to respond militarily so can i hear it from you. Do you think that there's is going to be a military solution to this or do you still have diplomatic intentions. No i mean we have said very clearly that all diplomatic diplomats and political options are on the table pakistan has no interest and no desire to escalate the situation. This is an escalation that was triggered by by an illegal and illegitimate act and we would like the international community now to stand up for principle for law for justice and to address the plight eight of the kashmiri people as i keep saying christiane. This is about people in that state in an occupied state an occupation that has been brutal india has moved additional troops into occupied jammu and kashmir why obviously to suppress the voice of the kashmiri people but one day the curfew will have have to end one day these restrictions will have to go and then the indian government will hear the voice of the kashmiri people and that voice will be to get get out of kashmir to leave kashmir and to reverse this illegal annexation but that's also gives rise to all sorts of worries because if they do protests as most people believe they will and some have suggested they will if and when this curfew is is is raised that also could trigger a response so let me ask you because obviously president trump has met president prime minister modi of india several times and he also just hosted prime minister imran khan oh prime minister at the white house and when they were talking president trump said that prime minister mody had mentioned. Maybe he into mediating in this. Let me just play what president trump said. I was with prime minister modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually flea said. Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator. I said
Sky high expectations for Modi's second term
"Narendra Modi begins, his second term office this week after a landslide election win Justice sing discusses, what he must do to live up to the hopes of the armies of young people voted for him with Amy Kasmin. And Stephanie Finley we begin with the voice of one young supporter. The world should know that India has finally woken up. We are not sleeping anymore. And now we know what a right, who is the right person who is good for India. We don't think on communal basis anymore. We don't vote on the basis of costs on the basis of religion now, we would for the wlob India for development we vote for India and not a particular party who has always ruled India like congress, Amy, the sheer scale of his victory has surprised many. What is your assessment of Mr. Moody's triumph? Look, I think the scale of Modi's victory is down to really multiple factors. First of all the opposition was really an utter disarray. I don't think the congress party has really truly recovered from the battering that it received in two thousand fourteen I think, in terms of leadership. They didn't have a very clear electoral strategy. They were completely destroyed. Other parties were factionalized. So the opposition did not offer any kind of convincing alternative to Mr. moody, on the other hand, you had the BJP, Mr. Modi's party, and then crew ably well, organized, highly tuned, and deeply resourced political machine. They had a great product and Mr. Modi, he's a charismatic strong leader highly conscious of his image. And then behind him. He had this incredible machine with all its resources, Mr. Modi's government over the last five years had started a lot of social welfare, schemes they estimate that two hundred and twenty million people benefited from one Mody government scheme or another, this included things like distribution of gas, cylinders to people who had previously been cooking, highly polluting, cow, patties, or would door charcoal. They opened. Rnc accounts for millions of people they delivered toilets or funding for people to build toilets. There was funding for building low cost housing. Other governments have also had a lot of schemes in the past, but these were probably delivered more efficiently. But then the BJP party machinery was absolutely astute in maintaining contact with all of those who benefited from any kind of government program, and then the party with its machinery, reminding people who delivered these benefits to them and overall, Mr. Modi, just really projecting himself as the confidence strong decisive, and really one and only leader for India against a weak and fragmented. An unconvincing position led to essentially a massive landslide that we've seen really a historic verdict the first time in decades that any leader has. Two consecutive single party majorities on their own. Stephanie, you were at the BJP headquarters on the day election results came out. Did you get a sense that people's expectations from Mr. moody will be even higher this time? So the mood was just euphoric at the headquarters thousands of people had come they were dancing playing music, and they were thrilled to be part of what they saw as a historic moment for mister Mody. And also for India in there is Mr. moody, Ken deliver what the congress has failed to deliver in India for so many years, and many people repeated the line to me that it's only Mr. Mody that can take India from developing to developed country. Most young people were very confident that Mr. Modi could deliver on his promise to create jobs, and they said that Mr. moody gave them the motivation to get. Job, not necessarily that he would create government jobs for them. But they did expect that Mr. Mody would create a booming business environment that would take India into the future and them along with it. So Amy huge expectations. Tell us water the key challenges before him, the astonishing thing really about this election. What came as a surprise to many as the fact that in two thousand fourteen Mr. Mody had campaigned on a promise of reviving economic growth, creating millions of new jobs to absorb the young people in the workplace. In fact, Modi's track record on the economy is pretty patchy. And right now, there is actually a lot that needs to be dealt with India's economic growth is slowing down in the last quarter for which we have the data. It was six point six percent. There are some people who think the next quarter could be even slower that some growth may come in under six percent. So growth is really full touring and growth is critical because it's with growth that you get jobs, which are so badly needed. There's also serious issues in the financial sector these things called non banking financial companies. They're not really banks. But they provide a lot of consumer credit, which is driving demand and keeping growth going, but many of them are very, very shaky. One is already collapsed, if others collapsed, it will have an impact on the banking system because around five percent of all Bank lending is to these nonbank financial companies. The government's finances are also not in very great shape. The government wants to try to step up spending to try to revive growth. But in fact, they don't really have the fiscal space to do so tax collections of come in, well below expectations, and their plans for accelerated growth will be hard to meet given the level of tax collection. So there's a lot of stored up trouble. Meanwhile, private companies haven't really been investing in the Indian economy either throughout the whole term of the Modi government, and the banking system also has still weighed down with heavy non-performing loans. The question is really, what is the Modi government planning to do about these problems, because we haven't seen any clear indications of how they plan to tackle these issues how much they feel the urgency of the situation, Mr. Modi's foreign policy is considered one of the main achievements of his previous tenure, what are the issues confronting Mr. moody on foreign policy, and trade fronts, Mr. Modena's reached out to leaders across the globe. He's tried to avoid taking sides in some of the rifts that have arisen in the international system. Particularly rising tensions with the US and China. He's reached out to. Chinese president Xi Jinping. He's reached out to Trump. He's reached out to Japan's Shinzo obey. His tried to indicate India's willingness to be friends with everyone. I think I see a few challenges ahead, though, under Trump. America is really forcing countries into hard choices. For example, India has traditionally good relations with Iran, but the US has pressured India and other countries to stop all their energy purchases from Iran, because the US wants to put the squeeze in Iran. The US for longtime been rather tolerant of some of India's economic policies that make it tough for American companies to do business in India, and are seen as favoring Indian companies in the past, the US was willing to tolerate some of that from India because they thought India's a democracy. We want to encourage India to rise and grow strong economically so that it can serve. Some kind of regional counterweight to China, but under Trump, it seems like trade is everything and Trump will be more concerned about a twenty billion dollar trade imbalance with India than the long term, strategic interests of a stronger India. So the US is putting a lot of pressure on India. And this is a kind of a friction point, and generally, I think India is going to find the US is pressuring India to take sides and it's likely to get tough with India, Hindu nationalist vision of India has often clashed with secularism enshrined in India's constitution often during the campaigning heard that the election, this time was about the soul of India. Do you see any serious threat to India's diversity, this time around the idea that defined the first years of India in the decades after its independence, really as are related by Mahatma gone? Bundy and then his political heir job, Lal Nehru was that India was by its nature, a diverse pluralistic, multifaith society. The state was to be secular in the sense of not having a religious identity and not preferring. One community over another alongside that idea husband, another idea championed by the RSS formed in one thousand nine hundred five that India is primarily a Hindu country, it is clear that the BJP has been heavily influenced by this second ideology. In fact, the BJP was formed by the RSS to promote these ideas and carry this message into the political sphere. The election campaign, had a lot of costal anti-muslim overtones for many in the BJP one of the. Mandates for the BJP who's been elected to the parliament is someone who has actually been criminally charged with involvement of a bombing of a Muslim burial grounds where at least six people, including a young child were killed many were quite shocked that the BJP would put up such a person who still awaiting formal trial in connection with this case in the wake of his landslide reelection victory. Mr. moody did make a speech where he talked about. We want to win over the trust of minorities of this country. We want to govern for all, but I think given the divisiveness of the campaign while Mr. Modena's clearly made the right noise.

India, Mumbai India And Narendra Modi discussed on Weekend Edition Sunday
"Prime minister Narendra Modi and his BJP party declared victory in this year's historic general election in India BJP is a Hindu nationalist party that wants to establish India as a Hindu nation, this makes for a difficult reality for the country's millions of religious and ethnic minorities, the largest being Indian Muslims run. You've is an independent journalist who has covered prime minister Modi since the early days of his political career. She's also a Muslim living in Mumbai India, and she joins us now via Skype, welcome to the program. Thank you for having me, Susan. There are many minority groups in India from Muslims to Christians to Jane's dollar. It's what is lifelike right now for these people as I call him a couple of months ago that life for Indian minorities, the nyc met in India right now because that into moldy in his last five yet dome has unleased kind of linked. Small in India that wants to establish a Hindu state lynchings on the street self Muslims allegedly eating beef, the president of the ruling party has differed, Muslim Muslims, still might and infiltrators migrants who need to be out. So that's the kind of sentiment despite the fact that his acceptance speech yesterday his dogged about an inclusive India, as somebody who is absorbed. Split to gutty. Mr. Moore does not walk the dog and Indian minorities that are read of his jacket God in hate crimes, and he'd speech. So that is apprehended is few amongst Indian minorities at this point of time. Muslims make up about fourteen percent of the population in the country of India yet. Just four percent of the representation in parliament. That is the lowest level in decades. Is this anti Muslim sentiment? You're talking about contributing also to the decline in representation in government. Absolutely. Because it's a full time in independent. India read the ruling party does not have a single Muslim Representative involement, despite the population of Muslims in India being one ninety million and that's speaks volumes on the kind of discrimination, you know, the government has all these of Muslims vase, BJP leaders have made scathing remarks with wisdom community that up a minister of China and unfair said that she does not need them listening to get elected. Listen, India have been under presented in with its sickle cell. This is with us in the armed force in the volcanic sources, because it is a sentiment of the government that do not encourage Muslims. Five Muslim candidates, especially with the anti-muslim sentiment in the country. So Muslims are at least presenting Indian movement is not the least fisa pricing, especially with business. Gene, this rise of populist, nationalist, right wing, governments. We see it happening all over the world in places like Hungary, and Brazil, Australia. What message do you think it sends to the world that India, the world's largest democracy? Is following the trend. I know the populist regime solid with void, but when the world's largest democracy, tries to follow that model. It ruins it stickler character that we've all been saying that if Mr. moody comes to father would be an attack on India's. Sole index notify the goal the list
India's Prime Minister Modi headed for landslide victory: what it means for India
"You, Robin will- India's prime minister Narendra Modi and his party are celebrating today after winning. Landslide victory. Today's news sent India's stock market soaring. And it follows six weeks of voting in the world's largest democracy. Joining us now is the BBC's REI. She's in Delhi divvy Narendra Modi was not on the ballot. But this election was a referendum on his leadership, so far and it seems like a pretty big vote of confidence in him. Indeed. We haven't seen a body comeback to power in India with this kind of mandate. He has overdone him said from the last time the numbers have gone up is still waiting for the final results. But the tally that's coming up is pretty clear and the whole election was fought in his name. Not even in his body's name every candidate in every constituency spoken in bed rallies, about Mr. moldy? So it was very clear to the water that your vote is not for the member of parliament, representing your constituency, but for Narendra Modi and it is to represent the whole country. So help us understand how voters. Did what they did here. Because since Modi has been prime minister there's been a farm crisis. There's been problems with unemployment, and growing religious divides, when Mr. moody has done an extremely successful communication campaign, and he has explained to the people that he is the kind of leader they need, because he can take decisions when they needed the strikes, that will made into Pakistan, right off to a terror attack onto a security forces forty-one security, forces were killed in the state of Cushman just before the elections was shown, as an example of what how countries should respond, especially to Pakistan with a country with whom we've had changed since for a really really long time. And we fought a couple of wars as well, his whole his party's whole attitude towards the Hindu-majority was another strong signal that went out to the public that the Hindu-majority is better off in the governance of Mr. moody, and his body. Not the secular congress party, which. Ruled the country for many decades. And even today when I went out to speak to people to find out how they were reacting to the government's re election, this is exactly what they were looking forward to this ad now, the Hindus will feel that they're not being discriminated. And what about the Muslim minority? Well, the Muslim minority of has seen a lot of, you know, there's been a lot of fear that the Muslim minority has experienced seen it among spears amongst educated, upper class, beatha Rian tracked with. We've also seen it in areas where mob, lynchings have happened people have been lynched for carrying transporting cows because cows are considered sacred in Hindu religion, and even people who are carrying cows of a slaughter, which is legally permitted were targeted. So the has been a sense of feel and a lot of people on Twitter today, for example have been talking about how going forward, the minorities will have to be subservient in a do the majority to live in harmony. But of course, the BJP potty denies all of that, and they say that, if you look at policies when the implement them we do not discriminate on the basis of religion, and that is what matters at the end of the day, where do these results Lee. Leave. Rahul Ghandi's party, the Indian National Congress. Well, it's a huge defeat for him. He just came in address the press a little while back, and he said he humbly accepts it because that is the people's worked, and he was asked about his leadership, and he said, that's something that the party will decide so lots of questions for mister gone to answer. And also, to reinvent because the congress if this is not a wakeup call for it to sort of strategize its messaging. It's the body workers and what it stands full. We don't know when it will be one more thing. What is the relationship between India and the United States like, and what is it likely to be like, with Narendra Modi staying in power? Well, the relationship has been pretty good. And Mr. moody has been credited with the, you know, refurbishing all his relationships across the world. He's seen to be someone who's been very successful with his foreign policy. He's made visits to the. United states. There's a strong community Indian community that that's supports him. And of course between him. And President Trump, of course, there seems to be more points of agreement than disagreement. Both of them have a very nation. I kind of agenda, not to say that the congress party here did not. But Mr. moody has also spoken about stopping immigration into the country. They're talking about bringing a citizenship Bill, which weeds out people who are not citizens and illegally. They've come into the country. So there, lots of common ground. And of course, the Pakistan being a common enemy China, of course being a common trade challenge to deal with. I think going forward, this is going to be probably good for both leaders, whether it's going to be good for both countries. Of course, is a question that icon onto at the
Repeat performance: Indias election
"India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi looks at for a commanding victory in the country's election. Results are confirmed his ruling party looks likely to once again have enough seats to form a government on its own. The election was a massive undertaking supporters of Mr. Modise RTA, junior party, were among campaigners of all stripes. Trying to capture India's nine hundred million registered voters. After six weeks of staggered voting across the country. Mr. moody himself went on a meditation retreat apparently with lots of supporters in tow. He posted pictures and videos on social media from temple in the Himalayas. Now, he looks at to rejoin the noisy fray of Indian politics with a renewed mandate. Will the results are clear enough that Narendra Modi and his BJP the party have won an enormous victory today a victory to match his victory of five years ago. Alex Ravelli is India correspondent for the economist based in Delhi with uncanny similarity in terms of the net numbers, the actual results are different. He lost support in some places, but he gained it back in equal measure and other places. It means that he's just won a re election, a single party re election of a kind that no one has one in India before there's a tremendous amount of political power. It is disposable now. And if those results are confirmed, is should we view that as a sort of stamp of approval on, on Mr. Modi's first term, you know, you could take this as a as a stamp of approval on Mr. Mody as a leader? There's no doubt about that. It's harder to sit to call it a judgment on the first term since what? Campaigned on in the run-up to the voting was quite radically different than what he campaigned on in two thousand fourteen and indeed than what he delivered during his five years in office. But whatever the content of the statement, you can say, a great many Indian voters are happy to trust the future of the government to Mr. Mody. So what do you mean by that? What did he campaign on what to the instead deliver? Well, it's interesting, the first time round, if you look at all the slogans in two thousand fourteen it was mainly about development. There is an undertone of Hindu pride, but for the most part, it was about cleaning up government removing corruption of the kind that had plagued the previous government's last two years in office and building building building. There was a sort of unspoken idea that India could grow like China has grown and the slogan that was heard most often in the day of that victory was good times are coming at meant economic good times. Now the past five years, have brought far less. Good happy, economic news than Indians, would one in particular in areas like manufacturing jobs, the motive really staked earlier campaign on, so this time round in two thousand nineteen there was almost no discussion of that. There were vague bromides about development, but for the most part, Mr. Mody and his surrogates chose not to talk about what the economy might do or has done instead to talk about who they are, and who their enemies are and very, very pure red meat so to speak. Nationalism seems to have been the winning ticket for this campaign. You mentioned nationalism Hindu nationalism has played a huge part in this election rights. I mean, how much do you see that playing into into the government with this new mandate? It's an interesting question there's still some space between the concepts of nationalism and Hindu nationalism. Let's suppose nationalism means flag-waving identifying the leader with the armed forces being proud to be an Indian Hindu, nationalism means asserting this. Specific sectarian character overall the offices of government. It's a more controversial approach, and Mr. Modi is used it sparingly usually putting it to his deputies to insist that India is more Hindu than Muslim or the belonging to any other minority and it's played very well in some quarters, whereas for the national press and his own personal, prestige, Mr. Mody prefers to stick to India first nationalism. Well, what about more widely in the region? How will Bangladesh and Pakistan to predominantly Muslim countries respond to this victim if no doubt that the leaders of these countries will phone in their congratulations to Mr. Mody? It's hard to know what they might have wished as an outcome for this election. But there's some comfort and doing business with the same government in New Delhi. But it's notable where relations in particular with both Pakistan and Bangladesh concern that a lot of the Hindu, nationalist themes that Mr. moody is rates on the. Campaign trail, nationalist, Hindu, nationalist end up taking quite sharp pointy aimed at those neighbors on the one hand using series of aerial skirmishes with Pakistan, as a as a calling card for his strongman credentials and on the other hand is a very, very major citizenship issue unfurling in the eastern part of India where the idea that Bangaladeshi infiltrators government calls them are screwing up the demographics, making them less Hindu in particular has has become a sticking point in a lot of those precincts. And that's something that, that is actually quite difficult for the Indian government to talk to the bungalow. She government about. And what about India's opposition parties will everyone feel chasing? What will they do? Now, the congress party if you measured against it's two thousand fourteen results which were incredibly dismal as done a little bit less badly. Still done terribly BJP. It's done. Almost exactly the same which is to say. Efficiently. Well, and some third parties, fared better, others, fared worse. One question people are asking is, how does the congress react to this? Does it collapse in shame, does its leadership change various problems imagining any of those outcomes. But at this point, it's, it's really anybody's guess how the congress in particular react. And what about the markets and investors? How how will they take this JP victory, will the markets are uniformly happy about this, and they have been since Sunday nights exit polls were made public. They were pretty cheerful before that even and today, the, the most watched market index hit a new record the sex now of forty thousand points for the first time. And in one by where the trader said, it's, it's happy not, not so much at this point, because people expect real structural reforms from a Modi government, very unclear whether they're even interested in delivering those, but because there's an assurance that we know what the government is like going. Forward. It won't be fractured. It won't be surprising. The worst it can be as what we just had for the past five years. Alex, thank you very much for joining us.
Modis operandi: Indias enormous election
"The biggest democratic exercise on earth, India's general election, the scale of it is staggering some nine hundred million people began voting last week at a million polling stations the process will continue until the twenty third of may. The election is the first since Rendra Mody, the leader of the Barth the junk party was sworn in as prime minister of India. He switched to power in two thousand fourteen with an inclusive. Message promising jobs and progress. His focus on Hindu unity majority faith in India. Put an end to seven decades of secularist politics since then though his popularity has waned somewhat economic growth is disappointing unemployment is relatively high. But the recent boiling over of long standing tensions with neighboring Pakistan has revitalized Mr. Modi's bid for reelection. So the election is as -ticipant it'd the biggest in the world ever, Alex trolley, India correspondent with the economist based in Delhi, India's largest means the world's largest you hear that an estimated nine hundred million Indians are eligible to vote and Indians ten devoted relatively high rates between sixty and eighty percent host states more than one in nine humans is eligible to vote and then the rigmarole of actually conducting elections in country as sprawling and in some ways challenges this one means that pulling takes a long time. So tell us about the render Mody so Narendra Modi has changed Indian politics indelibly, and that's something that we could have said even before the two thousand fourteen general election, India's last one of the most striking ways, formerly as that. He presents himself as something like a presidential candidate the party that he leads party John party or J P, really. Rides on his coattails Audie m accord, but he speaks forcefully up got got a bit the head. But was our up. What he what he projects the image of a strong, man, perhaps very virtuous, man. Also, a man with a hopeful attitude about the future about India's greatness, and it's claiming its rightful role in the world now. Notably the campaign. He ran in two thousand fourteen was much more focused on India's booming economy or Connie that everyone felt should be booming harder. This time round. He's voting rather. He's asking voters to choose him much more in the basis of his nationalist credentials is ability to protect India, from enemies, foreign enemies, internal enemies. It's in many ways a darker campaign. No less contentious. So on that note that how big a part will Pakistan play as an election issue. We'll. Custodian is playing a very large role say an outsized role in this election because of something that began in February and the middle of February. There was a terrorist bombing Indian-administered Kashmir that was horribly successful killed forty Indian soldiers paramilitary forces and came as a real blow to the sense of the nation. No thirteen days later, Mr. moody, ordered airstrikes and it's unclear what damage they did. But Pakistan responded with airstrikes of its own. And there was a dog fight. And India was able to walk away from this kind of mixed military exchange saying that Mr. moti had sought and found vengeance for the loss of those forty soldiers. And that this proves that his is the government that will defend against Pakistan. So every day since then on the campaign trail from not only his BJP, but from the other parties as well, you're hearing boxed on Pakistan. Pakistan, as if as if India box on relationships were the most important of all matters facing the Indian voter strange in part because the India-Pakistan relationship has been frozen solid for the past four years and has nothing apparent to do with any of the bread and butter issues that tend to determine elections in India. Well, what are the the real bread and butter issues? What do the the Indian voters really care about? Well, right now, it's different at different times. But right now, it seems like farmer distress is one of the very big things. And then from the more urban even middle class side of the electorate, it's kind of jobs crisis. What you have is not so much mass on employment of the western kind. Although the figure is record breaking for India. It's still only six point seven per cent. I believe and that may look low by western stand. Words, but what it reflects is huge disappointment on the part of the Indian workforce. It means that a lot of Indians would rather get no work at all than take up the sort of crummy jobs that are available to them. This isn't part of product of greater education and greater ambitions. And it's one of the things Mr. moody campaigned on most centrally in two thousand fourteen the number of jobs in India is barely greater now than it was then. So there seems to be plenty to challenge Mr. Mody on who are the other contenders his political threats. So the chief contender standing against Mr. Mody in the national level is Rahul Gandhi. He's the Siahaan of the Gandhi family that the narrow Gandhi family is great grandfather was the first prime minister of independent India, and he leads a party that has been badly battered in recent years, especially since Mr. moody reached prominence on the national stage. They command pathetically small number of seats in the lower house. And yet the head of that party. A young gash seeming middle aged man is the best hope in the form of personality. The opposition has against Mr. Mody, that's the congress party. And what makes them powerful would make them worth our attention at this point. Are the fact that every other party in Indy every other big party a couple of exceptions has come to see Mr. Modi's government as as an existential threat, and so they've all banded together. And what you have right now is this coalition led informally by Rahul Gandhi. But supported by every other big political party in the country. Now if that coalition can hold together, Mr. moody will really have to worry about keeping control of the government. I mean, democracy seems to be kind of always under threat, and and more. So all the time as the world's largest democracy. Do you think in the provides lessons for the rest of the world will India's examples should be inspiring? And that it's managed to maintain a democracy against extremely adverse circumstances, what was terribly impoverished nations still as mainly poor one extremely heterogenous and yet people keep voting in and especially the keep voting out leaders. They don't like so India's democracy that's worked even when it shouldn't. However, that's not to say that there isn't fragility in the Indian system and a lot of people have been concerned in the past five years that Mr. Modi's extremely effective control over all the institutions of the state might threaten democracy. Should he win power fairly one more time? So that's not to say that this current election, isn't lively and fully contested in democratic terms. But some people are afraid that this prime minister. Won't be capable of seeing the next one through so
