"Next. Lockdowns Asia have sparked a stampede home many migrant workers face hardship. Where do you belong? This is not master physical question for English. Speaking Indians belonging to a place means simply that you come from their as in. I live in Delhi but I belong to Bengal yet for millions of migrant labourers not only in India but across Asia couvert nineteen has given the question new meaning a Malaysian worker in a Singapore electronics. Plant a Filipina servant in a wealthy household in Bangkok or Bihari cooking a Deli. Restaurant faced a similar dilemma. In a time of mass layoffs curfews and sharp travel restrictions. Where do they belong prosperous? Ex-patriots can choose whether to stay or go. And if they all citizens of rich countries that governments may help them to fly home bought for many. The sudden absence of work leaves little choice. It is not just how to survive in expensive cities without a paycheck whether you are one of the estimated two million international migrants in Southeast Asia Laboring Sevens or toil in one of hundreds of thousands of small industrial workshops that power such Indian Industries as gem polishing or shoemaking. You'll place a work is also often by you. Eat and sleep even after years on the job. The minute you step off the treadmill there is nothing for it but to head home so it was that when Narendra Modi India's Prime Minister on March twenty fourth announce to snap decision to lock down all the countries one point three billion people for twenty one days on to suspend rail road and air transport the immediate closure of businesses forced a hefty chunk of the workforce into awkward motion at least six hundred thousand people. According to the government's very low estimate began to move despite the daunting distance between bustling cities such Surat on India's West Coast and impoverished sources of rural immigration such as the State of Utah Pradesh. Many simply started walking along the empty roads chastened by wrenching television images of the exodus state governments arranged buses for some of the migrants and Mr Moody himself apologized for any inconvenience caused. But then the central government changed tack again. The mass flight at realized was undoing. The very purpose of the lockdown which was to stop the spread of the virus in testimony to India's Supreme Court the government claimed somewhat improbably that as many as one in three of the migrants could be carrying the disease so new orders were imposed obliging state governments to quarantine all incoming travelers. This meant that often penniless and exhausted migrants who had already braved club-wielding police enforcing the national curfew. Then faced incarceration in hastily converted shelters in such places as government schools. Many will now remain stock in such places for weeks while those who turned back or stayed put in the cities where they work face. A precarious existence. Delhi state government is making plans to supply free food to more than one million people day. Other Asian cities are also coping with jobless. Stay behinds foreign workers who are now stranded. Under Malaysia's Movement Control Order. Many from Indonesia complained they are living in dangerously crowded quotas and running out of money. Some governments have acted to give stay behind some support but this is unusual. Singapore where migrants make up thirty eight percent of the workforce has offered businesses a stipend of thirty five dollars a night for up to two weeks to accommodate commuters from Malaysia which has shut its border migrants full set from the corona virus in the city. State will not have to pay for treatment. Sadly some of India's migrant workers who did reach their villages have not fed too. Well either one group that made it from Tamil Nadu. In the fall south all the way back to Bengal have hoisted hammocks shop poison mosquito nets into trees. They say they must live in suspension as there is no other way in their village to maintain social distance elsewhere. Returning workers are held in suspicion as possible carriers of disease spokane conflict in one case in Bihar. Amman man was beaten to death after he pointed. Policed fellow returnees. Who should have been quarantined? At Beryllium Uttar. Pradesh television cameras captured. The humiliation suffered by migrants forced by police to squat in a road as they were sprayed with. Bleach supposedly to disinfect them. The fear of migrants being a vector is far from misplaced work who fled Mumbai to escape the nineteen eighteen to nine hundred nineteen Spanish. Flu Pandemic carried it far into Indian provinces and HIV. The virus which causes AIDS was also spread along migrant corridors notes. Chinmay Tambi the author of a book on Indian migration just as Chinese migrant textile workers have carried Kovic nineteen to Italy. Some of the I nodes for the disease in India appear to have been seated by migrant dairy workers returning from Italy to the Punjab and workers from the Arab Gulf returning to homes and Carol as if that were not bad enough. Some of the poor Indian provincial regions to which the recent wave of migrants has just returned may prove exactly the wrong place to be in an epidemic. The one hundred twenty million people of the state of behalf instance must make do with just four testing centers for covert nineteen. They share AMIGA North Point. One one hospital beds for every one thousand people compared with one to one thousand Deli or two point four to one thousand in Singapore more immediately. What many of the migrants fear is simply financial ruin or even starvation and it's not just the migrants themselves at risk in two thousand seventeen. International remittances brought Asia an estimated two hundred and sixty eight billion dollars much of it flowing to rural economies. The top few other sources of investment the scale of such transfers across India is not known but economists estimate the total size of the migrant workforce at about a hundred million people many of whom said regular transfers home whether they serve as rich advanced economies such as Singapore's or form the menial drudgery in India migrant workers are among the most vulnerable to any shocks at times like this they pay the price for the trait that some of their employers most prize being invisible and finally the engineers of Formula.

Amd worked with the team at University College London to take apart copy and improve and off patent CPAP machine in a matter of days as it was based on an existing design. The British government's medical regulator was able to fast track approval. The team also worked with Oxford optronics. A small British firm that makes oxygen monitors the first one hundred devices have now been delivered to University College Hospital and other London hospitals for clinical trials. These are expected to take three or four days. If they are successful the team reckons it can make one thousand of the CPAP machines day at its base near Northampton and distribute them thence to other hospitals around the country the speed with which the team developed the devices remarkable reckons Dunkin young a professor of intensive care medicine at Oxford University.

"And Joanna. Slater is the Post India Bureau chief on Monday. Trump began his tour of the world's largest democracy with the visit to the Taj Mahal and rallied to more than one hundred thousand people with India's. Prime Minister Narendra Modi India U S relations odd. No longer just another pod. Good and blow down relationship. I'm not affect them. Is about to address the crowd here at this newly minted stadium. It's pretty packed. He's let me begin by expressing my profound gratitude to an exceptional leader a great champion of India. A man who works night and day for his country in a man. I am proud to call my true friend. Prime Minister Mody. Trump is the first sitting. Us President to visit the state of Gujarat and the symbolism and intention behind that move isn't lost on trump or mody the rally took place in Md. Bud which is the largest city in Gujarat state in western India Good number of Indian Americans can trace their roots to Gujarat which also happens to be the home state of Mohandas Gandhi sometimes called Mahatma Gandhi leader of India's struggle for independence and Gujarat is extremely important to mody. It's not just his actual birthplace. It's his political birthplace. He was the Chief Minister of the state. Which is kind of like a governor in. Us terms mody really likes bringing foreign leaders to Gujarat. He brought Xi Jinping of China Shinzo Abe of Japan and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. It's a way to showcase some of his achievements as well as the state's own history. It also sounds like there's definitely been some buzz around. You know resurfacing roads laying new sidewalks even putting walls up. Can you tell me a little bit? About how the country prepared for trump's arrival India is really rolling out the red carpet here so the Taj Mahal the iconic Indian monument was scrubbed and cleaned the river The Yemen a river that runs behind the Taj. Extra water was released into it to make sure looked pretty and smell nice. Some of the preparations have been more controversial including in Md. Bod where this rally took place. The city authorities built a six foot wall in front of a slum along one of the routes that it was possible for trump to take the city said. The timing was a coincidence but the people who live there don't see it that way. They say it's to hide the reality of their lives. I wasn't trump moody of cultivated. A really interesting friendship with each other since trump came into office when I met him the first time he said to me India head through a friend in. What is this relationship based on? That's a good question that I would love to ask them. There does seem to be a genuine fondness on trump's part for moody without treated very well by India but I happen to like prime minister. Mody allot great admiration. And I really liked him. And he's great. Gentlemen a great leader. I'm told that moody like many talented politicians is a way of focusing all of his attention on you. In a way that trump may find a flattering and of course they do share a type of politics in a world view. They're both stridently. Nationalist populist leaders who provoke polarizing responses in the electorate they both motivate Their supporters through a combination of hope and fear particularly of outsiders India. The United States. Also understand that to keep our community safe. We must protect our borders. They also are both facing controversies at home. Can you tell me a little bit about that? Sure so as we know. Trump has just emerged from the impeachment process and is beginning. What will likely be bruising. Election Campaign mody for his part is facing the most significant show of opposition. Since he became Prime Minister in two thousand fourteen there been nationwide protests across India over a new citizenship law which critics say is discriminatory and unconstitutional and Modi has been criticized abroad for this law because people say that it discriminates against Muslims so it seems like mody would benefit from some positive optics right now absolutely and trump coming here and sharing a stage with him and complimenting him on his leadership is goes a long way toward endorsing Modi's policies and Modi's government. How do Indians view is e popular their surveys have shown that the majority of Indians genuinely generally do have a positive view of trump? India was one of only six countries out of about more than thirty pulled. Where that was true I was also curious why. Indians broadly approve of trump's handling of world affairs and I think it's actually a combination of factors. Most Indians like the United States and by extension the American President Trump is also a celebrity. Which still helps and the trump administration has backed up on some of its priorities including putting.

"Be a seven day Period of Truce Before potentially a peace deal being signed at the end of this month February twenty ninth has been a month if that is successful period then They look to possibly go ahead with that Peacedale and you know Zama callow said the. Us chief negotiator. His said he's cautiously optimistic But he has pointed to potential spoilers to this. It's a hugely complex negotiation. It's been going on for eighteen months now. The being Fits and starts have been ups and downs and I mean who knows whether the reduction in violence is going to go smoothly and even if it does and the Peacedale Does go forward. There were big question marks The US wants to make absolutely sure that Afghanistan is not going to be used as a base for terrorism the Afghan side. The Taliban wanted to make sure that there is a withdrawal of US forces. That's not something that Washington wants to do in the mix with all of that there. Is this very tricky situation. Right now. Politically within Afghanistan with A pre the incumbent President Ghani being announced as the winner of an election. It's the results have been delayed five months now. His rival Abdullah Abdullah is rejecting that and saying he's going to set up a Powell government. That is one of the things that could seriously jeopardize Progress accept this same thing. Similar thing happened five years ago between the same. Two gentlemen did it not. It's it's happened before. And there is no way of knowing how serious this is going to get the biggest consequences. What that's GONNA mean for this peace agreements and you know this is. It's a very sensitive situation on the ground That there are There have been attacks this year. The the The the fighting has not stopped yet. So this is a this is a new phase and it's a significant moment but But we're still a long way from Being able to say this is this is going to go well Robbie. The president has called off these negotiations. In the past. They're back at the table of certainly. The president has made clear his desire to get. Us troops out of Afghanistan and home Is there worrying Afghanistan that the US may eventually especially under this pressure from the commander and chief simply say we're we're we're finally done. Do we need an agreement of this kind to just pull. Us troops out and and leave Afghanistan to its own devices. Well the thing is even if they do think that way. Who's listening? I mean this. The big part of the problem with this is number one. We don't have any real details about what's in the deal. We don't really know what kinds of testing mechanisms. They are within the deal to ensure that the Taliban breaks off ties with Al Qaeda for example we also know that the major part of this deal includes sidelining the elected government however you may dispute that election and now it's disputed once again but the fact that This unity government of Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah. The fact that they weren't involved in these negotiations is also deeply problematic. And then finally you have Pakistan which has long been a sponsor and a mentor for the Taliban Afghanistan Has brokered many of these talks over the last couple of years with Zalmay Khalilzad And their motives as well are not very clear throughout the saw. Part of the other thing that I think is very important for our listeners to to understand is that none of these groups are moderates. The Taliban is not a monolith. There are many different factions. It is very hard to say. The Taliban believes ex wires that They may different. Factions May do different things. The same goes for Pakistan The military may say one thing the elected government may say another and then you have the ISI. Nancy where does the US military come down on? These talks on the prospect of finally pulling out of Afghanistan. So I think what we'll hear from the United States military should things proceed is that they will reduce the footprint there from twelve to thirteen thousand around. Eighty six hundred. It's been a number that's been bandied around for months as I think. It began as a sort of negotiation. And it's been out there for so long that it's it's it's just kind of become Fada complete That's sort of an immediate during these negotiations during this reduction violence period. I what you're going to see. I think from the military. At least what we've heard from defense officials is a real effort to dissect who's behind any of the violence that we see over. The past week has rob was just mentioning. The Taliban not monolithic. Enin could in fact you could see more divisions as he's talks proceed from members of the Talamante. Who Don't agree with these peace talks or don't agree with the the wave. Leadership is proceeding and so for the next week. You're going to see a military trying to decipher who's behind attacks and continue to conduct counterterrorism operations against groups like Al Qaeda and Isis. I WANNA take some time with each of you. Journalists experts to get inside your heads about what stories we might be missing in the news stories. That you've been watching. That might be important to us before we do that. I WANNA make sure we check in on one other story that has been in the news and it comes from Canada where indigenous leaders have brought railroads to a standstill. As protests of a gas pipeline. Continue around the country now for more than a year the whatsoever and hereditary chiefs have disputed the construction of four hundred sixteen miles of pipeline now. Mohawk first nations and their allies have joined to stop this control construction. The protests spread in Canada. David writes the pipeline. Company should have followed the path natives wanted to avoid this very conflict instead the pipeline company. Ramrod this thing right into right into the land that is protected by treaty and Heritage and David refers to block headed stubbornness on the part of the company. That helped give rise to this Ravi what's what. What's at the root of this land dispute and this conflict? Is it as simple as as Native rights and the right to make profit and Ravi. If you don't WanNa talk about it Nancy do you know what's the heart of this dispute? We've seen similar disputes in North Dakota and in the DAKOTAS here in the United States so I think one if we were to give one answer to. I think it's sort of the relationship that Canada's government has with this indigenous populations at one point six million people and what responsibility it feels to speak to indigenous populations about what happens on that land. these are protests that started in one part of eastern Canada. Have spread precipitously since then which I think speaks to the inability of candidate of reconcile these issues and so I think your listeners raises a lot of great points about The complexities around it and what we've seen from Justin Trudeau. So far is a call for patients but not much substance in terms of how to come to talks in such a way that reconcile. The sort of long-term tensions with indigenous populations within Canada and Canadian governments desire to build a SM- pipeline and in the short term. What we've seen as a real Damage to meant to transportation and to delivery of goods and personnel on its train tracks. We have just a few minutes before it's time to go and head into the weekend which is welcome but before we do that promised. I want to take a few minutes with each of you in. Learn about some of the stories that you've been watching ways you've been looking at stories that maybe we're missing things that are on your radar that maybe you feel like we should be paying attention to set. Walker Vice News. Let me start with you. What's what's on your mind? Well I'm interested in this Pompey's main and just the kind of wider implications of that. I think that you know balancing trying to work out what the US strategy is full. The continent I mean. It's it's not long since that was a new approach and you announcement that the US is going to have a different attitude towards aid distribution and the drawdown potentially from the Pentagon. I mean that raises huge question marks about for example This massive drone base the the. Us has been building in Asia. Which was supposed to be the central focus for the war against Isis It was going to be a hub for launching drones to potentially strike targets in Libya where Isis has made somewhat of a resurgent so We visited that base Last year and you know we're talking to command as data about what what the future is. I mean the. Us has spent one hundred ten billion one hundred ten million sorry Dollars building this base. It's one of the largest constructions of its kind. The miniature has done and it's really not clear what the administration is thinking now for It's it's strategy the continent so visiting that base talking to Come on that. I think that that raises questions about the US Plan for the fight against Isis. Which in Africa is really Increasing that's that's somebody that Isis is ramping. Up said this base in Asia that the US has built may not be following through on. The drones are meant to patrol and destroy Isis factions in in Libya Somalia warehouse. Well I mean the range of the drones times where the targets might be but Nesia the expansion of a drone base. There was really supposed to be a response to this new and growing threat on the continents that You know places like the Suhel Mali. Nigeria Resurgence in Libya as I said when you Developments I mean. There has been a huge increase in violence extremist violence across the continent. It doubled every year since two thousand fifteen last year alone. No something like seven hundred attacks and this is this is happening behind the headlines and I I it's it's I think the concern is that if the US is now having a kind of hands off approach joined its footprint militarily. What's going to be the impact on the fight against Isis? And I it's fascinating. I think most Americans are not aware that we're building new drone bases right there in central Africa or Ravi Agarwal. What about you? Well One story that I have an eye on and I'm looking forward to is Donald Trump Visiting India on Monday and Tuesday next week and it's a fascinating set of conditions last year. Narendra Modi India's. Prime Minister was in the United States and he had an event that was called. How the how the MO- The in in Houston Texas and he had tens of thousands of Indian Americans mostly come to that event and Donald Trump showed up as well and he was very impressed at the turnout and the fact that a foreign leader could come to America and have this people following him So this is the return visit and of course trump is going to be in New Delhi for a day. But he's also going to end the BOB which is The a city in the home state of Narendra Modi the state of Gujarat and Moldy has promised a similar. Very large turnout Which will no doubt? Please trump The numbers and estimates have ranged from one hundred thousand to five hundred thousand. Sometimes even more so definitely something to look out for in terms of the optics in terms of what it means for the India. Us partnership which is one of the few areas of bipartisan agreement in Washington in that both sides here see this as a relationship that is worth building and that could be a hedge against China so a lot of stuff to come out of that in terms of potential trade deal and strengthening of Foreign Policy Partnership Nancy Yousef Wall Street Journal about you. I was thinking After watching the debate and reading the coverage you know one of the things in missing from a lot of these Presidential debates is foreign policy national security and You know we've just spent an hour talking about maybe a handful of issues just the four of us and we've just started to have a conversation and so I was one of the things I'd like to see going forward is sort of some way to get at how to report on the policy positions of the candidates. How they vary and get at why this these issues aren't sort of making the debate stage so much of what you hear is just. I voted against Iraq. And you voted for it and not much else. Right here have been flourishes. Who is the president of Mexico right exactly? I mean my one of our jobs. At the journalists foreign policy or national security porter monitor the elections and we always sit in the corner. Nobody really cares about us. It's very hard to fact check when it's something like we should get out of Afghanistan. Okay but what does that mean? And I'm this this debate in particular left me really hungry for because it just didn't come up at all on and I've been thinking realistically how do I sort of smartly get this in a way. That sort of engages a conversation or answers those questions because their websites rather incomplete on when it comes to foreign policy national security so I that's sort of been on my mind and it just kind of came to the fore after after this date. Can I put in a pitch to anyone who's listening? I do not run anyone's campaigns. I don't run the DNC's debate Operation at all. How about a foreign policy debate among the primary candidates carved out have a debate devoted to foreign policy. That might help us. All would certainly help out Nancy use for the Wall Street Journal. I'll tell you that so that she can help. Tell the story to Americans everywhere who are being asked to vote on these issues. That's Nancy Yousef security reporter at the Wall Street Journal as Always Nancy. Thank you my pleasure Robbie. Our goal is managing editor at foreign policy. Ravi thanks so much..

"In September this year in Houston Texas president trump appeared at a so much event that may have been forgotten. It looked a lot like trump rally. But it wasn't a trump rally per se. It was organized instead by supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India to celebrate the reelection of the leader of the world's biggest democracy. Now that's interesting. Because before mody became Prime Minister Indian two thousand fourteen before he spoke to tens of thousands of people at that Football Stadium Houston with the president is states. There mody had literally been banned for nearly a decade during much into the Bush administration's from even entering the United States. That's because he was implicated in the two thousand and two anti Muslim riots in the state of Gujarat where he was chief administer those riots killed up to two thousand people crab credible evidence points to mody encouraging that religious ethnic violence against Muslims or at the very least turning a blind eye to it as well as covering up the role of his state government in it but then mode Iran prime minister on a right wing populist platform and and one for the first time back in twenty fourteen and after he became prime minister he was of course invited the US by the Obama Administration. He's been the subject to friendly press in a leap praise in the US and Davos and now president trump has warmly embraced him because mody with his heart rate politics open bigotry and constant rhetorical war against since those views as his domestic enemies. The kind of foreign leader trump praises a lot. Trump's Muslim ban is nothing compared to what Modi has actually done bodey right now is in the midst of an audacious attempt to destroy the pluralistic governing vision of India that dates back to Gandhi. And replace it. Instead with Hindu nationalism a Hindu supremacy it has occasioned the largest protests Indian years amid terrifying incursions on civil liberties. We're GONNA talk about all that next. Since becoming Prime Minister of India in two thousand fourteen Narendra Modi has used his popularity and his position to move in an increasingly authoritarian returning direction. He's launched a full-scale assault on the basic pluralistic multireligious foundational principles of a Democratic India enshrined by Gandhi and the Congress Party Modena's unilaterally revoked party Indian constitution that gave autonomy and self determination to Kashmir India's only muslim-majority state he sent in troops. Put it under curfew and on surveillance cut off access to the Internet and certain areas for months the country of one point three billion people Modi has pushed for things like citizenship registries meant to disenfranchise much much of the country's twenty two hundred million Muslims and now in the most bras and brazen move yet he has pushed through passage of a law that would provide citizenship for immigrants ends of literally every religious minority except Muslims that law has provoked massive protests around the country for more. I'm joined by suitcase. Jimeta associate associate professor of journalism at NYU author of this land is our land and immigrants manifesto originally from India and Dexter Filkins staff writer for New Yorker recently visited India and published a piece investigation blood and Soil Narendra Modi's India which is phenomenal read. Let me start with you as someone who was in the. US went backdrop. Incredible book about it there. Give a speech about Modem just a few months ago in India this citizenship law which seems just so cut and dried explicitly bigoted. It has provoked some kind of reaction in India that we hadn't seen yet what's going on with that for the first time in independent history. There's been a law which has a specific religious desk so as you mentioned citizens of the persecuted minorities in Afghanistan Pakistan Munger. They can come into India as long as they're not Muslim and never really it happened in independent India and it failed through parliament without much protest. Then an interesting things started happening. Young people in universities started protesting and now. It's all across the country. I mean the protest are led by the young but along other measures that the government wants to put forward I would like a national registry of citizens they want to Indians to produce documentary evidence that the citizens and anyone who's been to India know how hard it is to get any kind of run for government office so the idea is the messaging at all levels whether it's Kashmir resumes the Citizenship Act whether the national register upset if to fend my fish to the country two hundred million Hindu country. You hear uh-huh sufferings degree of his trip to India since the founding of Democracy Dexter before this protests over the citizenship law there was the the move on Kashmir and obviously that's been contested territory for a very long time since before partition partition. You filed an incredible story New Yorker where you went with an Indian journalist there to document what it was like. What has he done in Kashmir? I think what's what's so depressing about what we saw as we we snuck in foreigners prohibited so I just managed. I got on an airplane and kind of put on a local a local costume and I got through but what I think what is most remarkable about it. Is that when you pick up most Indian newspapers or you turn on the television tells you they tell you everything's fine. It's a norm all like everybody supports this and Kashmir's fine go home And what we found is that it's essentially a an open air prison. The people are cut off from the rest of the country. There's no Internet. There's no telephones. They're caught off from each other. Our soldiers everywhere. They're on every street. Corner is a really really grim situation. I mean I was there for about a little less than a week and I I was just personally. I was going crazy because it was so so claustrophobic. And so intense and really fearful and that's so they've locked down and I think I got a really bad feeling when I was there it was creepy. Be and I. I've seen a lot of. I've seen a lot of bad things and gave me a bad feeling. I don't know where that's going but it's not good and so these demonstrations have actually been kind of encouraging encouraging. Because it's really extraordinary. The Indians rise up. Yeah so there's two things happening here. I mean one is this sort of vision of Hindu supremacy India as a a religious state fundamentally like India for Hindus which is obviously at odds with what Gandhi literally gave his life to avoid. And also this this authoritarian turn a little bit control like pressure on the media pressure on academics in the universities. We've seen some arrests in universities. How how much have you seen mody sort of moving in these liberal directions but it really has been an all out war against intellectual against people who defenders in in any form you see on social media? I mean I'm sure my predictive blading up right now with people who say I'm a traitor to India at this kind of experience before and and given other talks about the situation It's kind of weaponising of Hindu card idea that they're all these countries and different religions have different countries. India should be for handles. Now these people who are always dead throughout in manure fifty but now they're in power motives got elected with a thumping majority issues that the economy Konami is really in the toilet mode claims to have built tens of millions of Alexis actually dragged the economic into the toilet. An employment is at a forty five year high Rate went from seven last year to four and a half percent. So some of this. If meant as a distraction from performance and economy. But there's dexter there's also as documented that great piece in the New Yorker like this is very gifted and also popular politician mode. I mean this is someone who if you look at sort of other folks. Particularly trump or Bolsonaro in Brazil sort of somewhat similar styles obviously very different countries. They're not pop. Modi's approval rating is sixty five five percent. They're really he's really smart and I think what I think. What was the thing that was most disturbing to me when I was there was how much it felt like the United States except worse? And how much and how much mody resembled trump. Except he was worse and so many Indians said that to me when I when I spoke to them they said this is what we're going through the same thing that you did the differences. Your your institution's years in the United United States the press the judiciary the military you've withstood. You've withstood the assault. Our institutions collapsed. And that's what's I think Modi's ody's been extremely deft at that you know they're not they're not shooting people in the streets you're not going to see a tenement square or anything like that. They're too smart for that and that's so even in Kashmir flying under the radar screen. And they're doing it in a very insidious fashion and it's very calculated and you know so far. He's been in power our for five years. He was reelected in a landslide earlier. This year. It's worked for him. It's worked by by taking segment of population. Muslims in demonizing them. He's been an organized the majority around that and they've a majority of people have been able. They've been willing to give him really unchecked power. And that's that's what's so so scary about it because like you kind of feel that here a little bit yeah and To me it's it's the lesson here for everyone in many countries where something like this is like just the importance of civil society in the face of this but they have actually been reacting to openness and India's federal structure might actually save the country in the long run.

"New Delhi. Here's a clip of that. It took the women are shouting. Go back as they form a human shield around this man it happened during protests that are tied to the new Citizenship Amendment Bill that grant citizenship to all minorities fleeing India's bordering countries. He's except for Muslims. You Sean what's what really is happening in this video. What's the backstory? So before I answer that I have to offer a quick full disclosure. My father is an member of parliament and Dan in the opposition. So I do not report on India for the Post but I'm happy to talk about it here. with listeners. So to embrace. What's happening happening is that in India? You have an incredibly dominant hindu-nationalist government in power that's working on multiple fronts to reshape Sort of the political identity of of the country and and the citizenship. Bill is in their idea something. They give citizenship to non Muslim minorities who've been in India from other parts parts of South Asia But what many feel it really is is a kind of opening salvo in a series of legislative steps that the government may enact that would also strip away citizenship from Muslims who've been living in India and so it's complicated there is Slight light degrees of misinformation on both sides in terms of how it's heated up the political conversation did what you are seeing in. India is a huge popular backlash to mow the and this is not something we've seen in the years that he's been power Narendra Modi India's prime minister's correct and yeah so so there's been this you know protests a major university campuses and different cities Press Prime Minister Modi came to power on this platform of economic uplift but the prevailing view is that the economy isn't. I'm doing much better than it was before. And he's instead embarked on a really heavy handed culture war. That is playing out right now. So do we know more about the people in this video who the women are men is like. Does this video in particular. Tell us anything about this situation or do anything more. Yes there are. Students at a prominent Muslim may move Muslim-majority University in northern. The women themselves come from south India. Where Hindi would not be their first language and they're rallying around a friend friend who getting beaten they were part of protests? They were chased by the police. The police cornered this man and they've been scenes like this elsewhere and this really this image of a hit job woman. Defending you know standing up against the police has gone viral across India. And I would just say I would encourage listeners to watch the video because we can describe it but it's really amazing to watch And especially one of the women. Twenty two year old is wagging her finger at the police saying. Don't touch my friend you know had and it's amazing to see these. These police officers in riot gear with batons going after this person and then when without any arm or any any weapons just with their finger-wagging gets them to back off. If it's really powerful we'll find the video will tweet it out at one a after the show said. Where does this leave us? I mean we've heard quite a bit about Narendra Modi's government about the clash between I mean he's very ardent Hindi nationals between Muslims and India particularly in Kashmir and all of these new laws that are kind of anti Muslim. This feels like it's been building building and building and building. What is this building to why I think you're going to see a lot more of those protests and certainly? I mean the big reason why this video is gone so viral. Is that really kind kind of gets to the identity of how India was created founders. You envisioning this country. That was a secular nation with all religions. Well Kim you potentially in contrast to the more Islam and identity of Pakistan So it's really something that Ah is is a huge issue across the country For for for many different communities Sean before we go yes. It's an existential moment. For the world's largest democracy in the world's second largest we're just Muslim nation India has perhaps upwards of two hundred million Muslims. That's a huge population and to stigmatize. That dot scale of population is incredible. So this is something everyone should be watching watching you sean. Through who covers foreign affairs geopolitics in history for the Washington Post. Sean thanks for being with us. My pleasure or Friedman staff writer for the Atlantic.

"India is home to two hundred million Muslims. It's the third largest Muslim population poppulation in the entire world and yet in the past several years under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi India has moved decisively towards turning joining these people in the second class citizens and now due to a recent conjunction of bills me start treating them like they are not citizens at all and the construction uh of detention camps to house some of these Muslims rendered stateless. This is worldly part of the VOX media podcast network. I'm ZAC Beecham here. As always with Alex Ward Jen Williams our our general other host is out but Seagal Samuel who is a reporter for vox is future. Perfect is in the studio. She's been covering the horrible situation in India Seagal. Thank you for being here. Good to be here to talk about this. Lovely this very exciting this lovely horrible situation. We never bring in guest for good things. That can't be true anyway. Look we we want to get into this policy. We want to talk about what is happening to India under Narendra Modi and and more broadly the rise of anti Muslim mm sentiments across the world as a defining elements of anti-democratic politics. But before we get into the big picture themes seagal seagull. You've been reading a lot about the stuff for the site. I WanNa talk to you about just like exactly. What the policies are I like? When did India start talking about these policies policies changing the status of Muslims under law? And what are the actual policies. Cool so basically. The bill that India just passed in both the lower and upper house of parliament is called Citizenship Amendment Bill or the C. A. B. and that basically makes religion into a criterion John for deciding which religious minorities should be fast tracked for citizenship and India and who should be treated as an illegal immigrant the immigrants that it allows India to treat naughtily immigrants but people who should be fast-tracked are people who came came from Afghanistan Bangladesh and Pakistan so those three specific countries and it says Hindu. Sikhs Buddhists Jane's Parties Christians. It's all good. One group is missing from that list. So this has been under debate since two thousand sixteen right. So what. What Ledge with passage? Now Yeah so this. This idea has been kicking around around for a while but it sort of lost support after An important political ally pulled out and mass protests erupted over it now now it is back and it's closely linked to another policy that came into force this summer. I was about to say right on its own. The citizenship seems like immigration policy thing which has real disturbing implications but it doesn't seem to implicate the status of Muslims inside India but there's a second set of policies elsies that make the situation much much more disturbing even then discriminatory immigration bill exactly so it is sort of an interlocking policy with this other thing called the NRC. The National Register of citizens which so far has only been implemented in Assam which is a northeastern state in India bordering on Bangladesh. And basically what happened. There is this summer And this this pulse has also been kind of kicking around for a while but it was finally implemented lamented There was an enumeration of of folks there and basically everyone ended up on a list if they were deemed to be legitimate citizens. Oh you know people who had immigration there legally and if your name out to not be on this list you were told you have a set amount of time to produce the birth certificate or a land deed or whatever to prove that you are in fact illegitimate citizen. And if you can't you're going to be deemed illegal and you're going choose to potentially put in one of the ten new detention camps that India is building to house these folks and the next step after that according to the ruling party of India the BJP would be deportation so these camps are not again for anyone who gets deemed illegal under this right like this is really a policy specifically targeting Muslims. So we should say that in the NFC. First of all in August when that list of names came out there were about nearly two million people who found their names were left off and a lot of them are Muslims some of them were Hindus and and that creates a real problem for the BJP. Because they don't want to be putting in Kamson and expelling fellow Hindus the BJP is Narendra. Modi's party that's right so that creates kind of a awkward situation for the BJP and you can see how they might want to sort of put forward some other additional piece of legislation that would allow them to say okay. But if you're Hindu and your name kind of get off got off left off this list. There's A. There's a way for you to kind of still reestablish this yourself There's maybe a bit of a loophole for you that were knocking to extend to the Muslims. Who are left off the list if you're a casual listener casually falling along along and you're kinda going okay? Well maybe there's. This is some sort of misunderstanding. Maybe there's something going on be maybe bill sorta figured this out and this does seem if that's your take of this. Allow me to try to dispel that so the BJP is a Hindu nationalist party. That's still not leads. And I'm not an expert in this. Yes but it's worth pointing out that. A lot of members of this party believe in which is basically that India is a Hindu the Hindu country people need to follow by those attendance basically I'm I'm being speaking. Generally there's a strain of thought that Muslims are second third class citizens and in fact that they are Extremists strengths and that they are could be terrorists and that there's a jihadi ideology and they're trying to constantly bomb and hurt and and and destroy this Hindu culture and so so modi grew up in this As did a lot of people in upper echelons of that party and there's I don't think it's a surprise or a coincidence. Instead a lot of these policies going after Muslims have really started since he took power earlier this decade. And so this is sort of a problem that you're seeing now And we'll talk a little bit about this later but when you hear the comments coming from. PGP officials mody is slightly more careful although in some rallies he has said some horrible things about Muslims but a lot of his upper officials will say be pretty clear Alec. Muslims bad they are dangerous. Be Very careful and this has led led to like tons of targeted violence against Muslims throughout the country. This is actually a Ra- lead deep tension in Indian Society Society right because the BJP is the political manifestation of an organization called the RSS or the song. And I it's a Religio militancy. In Oregon Ization with political wings explicitly religious rings charitable wings and his existed for a very long time We're talking to the point where someone affiliated affiliated with the RSS Actually assassinated Gandhi. Because there is a sense that he was to open to the idea of a secular alert democracy that didn't privilege Hindu identity over Muslim ones this decades decades ago back to the founding of India where there has been the sense a group that is was organized and pressured towards creating state that privileges Hindu status over specifically Muslims. It's more tolerant of Sikhs and other minorities but generally he wants to assert the supremacy of Hinduism and now especially since Modi's descendants. He's emerged as the most talented. BJP politician maybe ever ever in India's history. I think it's probably fair to say and that has led him to pursuing this agenda fairly ruthlessly also I think worth noting that mody was eight years old when he was recruited by the RSS so he's a lifelong card carrying member right. So he's he's been sort of shaped in. This is ideology forever. And now he's really propounding it in a kind of more hardline way than we've seen in a long time hence the bills which I want to zero in on what what they would actually do and why they're so important to this project right because in conjunction they create a really really kind of terrifying system or it's a one you have this citizenship bill that strip certain people their citizenship unless they can prove it otherwise and then too you have the fast track bill which means that any Hindus who are caught up in this Sagawa's was hinting at this earlier. And he can do to are caught up in the purge get fast-track back in but Muslims don't and so Muslim get disproportionately proportionately under the system taking out of citizenship and discriminated against when they try to get their citizenship back it is in effect a way of justifying pershing Muslims citizenship citizenship. And then and this is the really scary part sending Muslims to camps or deporting them. Yeah and given the scale of this and how many Muslims we're talking about a lot of international rights groups are concerned that this could trigger a huge Mike refugee crisis a ton of migration could potentially potentially in a worst case scenario turn into big humanitarian disaster. That is bad because there's already a serious humanitarian issue in that area or in terms of displaced populations and yeah on with climate change. The refugee situations only GonNa get worse. We can only expect does seem. There's a chance that the courts might strike this down. But as far as I'm I am. I know mody has been pretty friendly toward mody policies and so the chance of that is pretty slim right. I mean some people like Members of the Congress party which is opposition party to Modi's. BJP Say we we think. I hope that this The bill is going to be struck tracked down by the courts on the grounds that it's unconstitutional India's constitution Says everyone is equal before the law. Religion is not a criterion for citizenship eligibility agility. So in theory the courts could strike down but the part of the issue is that Modi's party is we've talked about this sort of movement that he has been a part of the board on the DACAS That he's been for a long time like it is infiltrated in that and I use that word someone. Deliberately like a lot of aspects of the country the media media the the courts the the law enforcement et Cetera et Cetera. And so to believe that. This court won't do that will make this decision with within. A vacuum without without outside pressure is going to be hard to believe. There's also I mean lifeline is too strong a word for this but there is a backlash to this of course not only just politically but there are people protesting in the street calling this unconstitutional constitutional Going up against law enforcement that are shooting back at these protesters throughout. And so there's cooley unrest this is not no one is really taking this sitting down Unless you were inclined to to like the policies it this is this is ask started. I mean it's been a long going issue. That's into Muslim tension but this the movements mode is doing a lot is bringing a lot of taboos here and he is pushing forward this agenda that is clearly led to the these tensions are erupting. Yeah A- as we speak literally as we speak right now on Thursday morning there's huge protests underway in India especially in the northeast in Assam's capital right now communities have shut down the Internet for an unspecified amount of time and implemented a curfew and You know water cannons tear gas. The you know troops have been deployed there. The backlash is pretty strong. Assam is has more Muslims than than than the average Indian state in part because this geography right that's right now when we talk about popular unrest and protests it's primarily concentrated among the Muslim population right in India. It's not as far as I understand it a yes but but also a lot of other folks Including Hindus in Assam..

And so there was a belief that the Chinese government was trying as best as it could to tackle the threat of pollution in its own country. But I think this just points up the challenge they face with just thousands and thousands of factories and economy that needs to grow at a certain rate is very difficult for them to keep an eye and keep a rain on all of these emissions, and so the Chinese are now saying, we're going to look into this, and answer these charges and it'll be interesting to see how they respond. I mean on, on one level as I said, they've been quite proactive in addressing climate change, whether they will go after these factory owners and eliminate the CFC's. It will be interesting to see. It's a sort of a test of their ability to crack down and sort of put environmental concerns ahead of their need for breakneck economic growth. Paul, any other international response that you've heard so far on this. I think the thing about China is also true of India, which we're talking about. Next is environmentalism is seen as something that you can really worry about when you've got you Konami sorted out when you go hygiene, so, and suicide so to everything else was in the west is a big issue us us because we do have most of the old new stuff in life, so to doubt, there's some reluctance amongst the people of both India and China to actually commit to this, because they're basically saying what a lot for you guys. You've done all you need to do to grow. We need to do this to grow. So I think this, there's the Europeans are saying, you know, they must tackle and all the rest of it, but a lot of developing countries are saying, well, yeah, but until you guys help us gets away. You are, you know, you need to pick up picking up the kind of customer this not us. And so it tends to split in terms of international reaction, depending on where you're gonna is in the skate of things, and how much you think that the western governments did all that polluting to get where they are. And now you're trying to stop us, build our own economies. Right. Let's go ahead and move on to India, Narendra Modi India's incumbent prime minister led his party to a stunning election victory on Thurs. Day. It was the strongest victory, the Hindu, nationalist ever had Susan tells more about that. Well, that's right. I think it's arguably, you know, one of the most significant stories not only of the week, but of the year in the sense that first of all, this is the largest democracy in the world, six hundred million people voted in this election. Think about that. It also was the highest election turnout ever in India's history.

Narendra Modi, India And Prime Minister discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak

"Indian prime minister Narendra Modi's election victory looks to be even bigger than expected, clearly, he has a mandate for a second term. Now he needs ambitions to match. His first challenge is economic the only way to create the nearly one million jobs per month. India needs for its swelling population is to expand the country's manufacturing sector. India also needs to reverse a disappointing recent trend toward protectionism. Modi's other central task is to temp down the divisiveness that he and his party exploited to return to power, because undermines the kind of bipartisanship that's needed to promote economic reforms and threatens to damage. India's fragile. Social fabric Modena's again. Proved himself a skilled politician, if he wants to be a great leader. He has to show he can be one for all

"Been will be here back on the World Service throughout today. And he's back on news date tomorrow as he said now, let's go to Israel next where after night of counting votes following Tuesday's elections, we're getting closer to a final result after an early lead for the incumbent Likud leader and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He now appears to be neck and neck with his main challenger former army chief Benny Ganz, but it's Benjamin Netanyahu who will be on track to become Israel's wrong as serving prime minister. Let's find out more from the BBC's international correspondent lease to set least bring us up to date. What's the latest on that count? But an extraordinary night. It was both men left to declare that they had emerged victorious after the polling stations closed in Israel and this morning week wake-up defined in in a way, they they both have won. It's still a dead. He that Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party in Benny. The former army chief's blue and white lines also has thirty-five seats, but they're in effect two days two days, which matter in in Israel. What is the voting day where the where these rallies decide and then the next day? In fact, it will not be days but weeks that will be when the whoever the president chooses with the best chance of forming. The government tries to cobble together some kind of governing coalition and the way the numbers look now in it's all in the numbers Benjamin Netanyahu stands seems to stand better chance of forging a coalition with right-wing and religious parties. But Israeli politics is always a moving feast, and there will be promises made which can't be kept. But will they'll be very much of the the ingredients which will oil, processed and this election was more on a referendum really on Benjamin Netanyahu himself now despite allegations of corruption against him. He's denied those this election shows that Israel these seem such with the way in which his govern because the country. In fact, the Konami did really well or is doing really well under him. The economy is strong security is strong in. What was indeed a referendum on Benjamin Netanyahu has basically concluded that there is an alternative to Benjamin Netanyahu. How did a former army general with no experience in political battles all of his experience has been on the real battlefields? Mount such ineffective challenge, the blue and white lions didn't even exist months ago. So Benjamin Netanyahu has had a rude awakening. And members of his Likud party will be pondering this now those who would like to have moved him out long ago are are thinking about this. But this this is a country where everyone has an opinion about the man, they call they love them or they hate him. Those who love him believe he has made Israel great again. Those who hate him believe he is reshaping Israel taking it to the right taking. Away from any kind of a credible. Peace process in ways in which they feel deeply uncomfortable. And just reminders lease. When are we getting the final result the official one and what will happen after that? So the it'll be possibly another day before we have all of the results counted the soldiers votes still has to be counted. And they tend to be more right wing. The diplomats votes have to be counted. The president will then take a look across that set sheet which shows all of the numbers, and he will have to make a decision and is interesting in the past that's been really just a symbolic decision. It's been absolutely clear who stands the best chance of forming a government there may have to be judgment this time. But we're not sure how big are hard to judgment that will be he chooses six weeks to form a coalition. If that doesn't succeed then it will be another three months, and who knows Israel could be the poles again, the BBC's international. Correspondent Lisa set in Israel.

Ken, Linda depends on what you want. So it has to be a smaller item. Clips something like that. You also have to live in Australia Pacific -ly, you can live in camera, and you've also could be one of three hundred houses so went to a niche market application here. But this is the world's first they are starting out smoke wing as the company is known as Tommy delivery drones service which aims to reduce traffic congestions in cities increase access to goods in rural areas. Also hope he's co two emissions. I spoke to I lean beverage of passion capital with this was the beginning of something new and beautiful Google has been testing this for the last eighteen months, actually in Austria and in the United States. But it looks like it's finally got itself. A commercial license. I'll be in the limited scope, so what does it? What does it get to do? I'm not going to be driving along in my car with the being buzzed by Jones, not if things are going well, or according to plan so from what I understand. It's a pretty small scale commercial license, it probably applies to only one hundred to three hundred homes in camera, and it has the call. Sort of restrictions, for example Jones have to fly at least eighteen feet above humans. It can't be across or above busy roads. And it's probably only going to be used for a limited range of products. Is there any indication yet as to then I'm going to be delivering fridges yet? I assuming now I think these are pretty small drones. So what's been delivered in the trial? So far are sort of things like cosmonautics, maybe some general purchase items from the chemist beverages. I don't know if it's been local, Starbucks or other types of coffee and things like that. But they're going to be small small items. This is going to have knock on implementation. Elsewhere as well. I'm just thinking dean sure industry must be absolutely salivating the throat of drones flying through the air with free stuff on them kids out there with maybe rooks or nets trying to see what they can get off the Jones as a great opportunity as an investor who looks for startups. I love that idea of looking at insurance or other types of opportunities to take advantage of these drones. But I do think yes, it will open up a huge huge swath industry. Obviously. There's been lots of rumors that Amazon or other companies are just waiting in the wings to test their own types of or they've been testing sorry. But to commercially launch their drone delivery services. I do think it's going to Russian serve a new era of consumer convenience. If people are going to be able to get deliveries in under four minutes early founder of passion capital. Philip. Thank you now tensions between India and Pakistan. A never fall from the surface in recent months. They've almost bubbled over they have been accusations and booming rates and fears of even greater escalation between what after all to new Kip house now as India profess to go to the polls, the prime minister of Pakistan, Iran, con has been speaking about his hopes for a peaceful future between the two countries. He's been speaking to the BBC's world affairs editor Johnson. Him run. Con is thoroughly at ease. It's eight months since he became prime minister. And in that time, he's any given a couple of interviews for the foreign media now, though Hoffa dozen people from British and American news organizations of being invited to meet him. Why because he wants to pass on a message to Costanza larger neighbour India and to the man he assumes will win the election there Narendra Modi India's prime minister, it was Mr. Modi who gave the orders for the attack on Pakistani territory last February aimed at a militant Islamic group called Girish, the situation could have turned very nasty indeed as Imran Khan walks into the next room to record an interview with me a doc suited figure moves unobtrusively with him. He's carrying a briefcase with. Told Pakistan's nuclear codes in it. A reminder of what could be at stake when the two nuclear pause India and Pakistan get into a quarrel with the Indian elections about to begin Imran Khan wants to be seen as doing everything he can to minimize the tensions. What message would you like to send the motive government and the people of India, surely the number one toss of the two governments should be how you going to do spotty on the way we reduce poverty is by settling differences through dialogue. And there's only one difference. Which is it has to be settled the Cushman issue cannot keep on boiling as because anything happening in Kush weed through a reaction to the oppression, which is digging in Cushman. It will be found of on Pakistan. We would be blamed and tensions would rise as they have arisen in the past. So if we can settle Kush me the benefits of bees, a tremendous the subcontinent the Indian government would say you're still simply not doing enough about terrorism. We already dispensing the organizations as we speak including Josh and Gooding. Josh we have taken over their mother says the various organizations direction. This is the first serious effort that is being taken to disarm, the militant groups, and you have the will to see through. We have the will John because it is for the future of Buxton outside Britiah or not it is an eye interest that we do not have any militant groups here anymore. Lost Tober was troubled in the streets, right across Pakistan, when the supreme court acquitted a Christian woman as the Abebe who'd been sentenced to death for blaspheming against the prophet. Muhammad her acquittal was confirmed in January and she's been offered asylum in Europe. And yet she still hasn't been allowed to leave Pakistan. You will find the dossier will be leaving very soon. What are we doing about days weeks? I think weeks we're talking about weeks is that your decision to let ago there's a little bit of a complication, and I can't speak on the media out. But I can assure you she's safe and she will be living in weeks. There's not much doubt. What Imran Khan is hoping for in the Indian elections. He wants the current Indian prime minister is to Mody to win by good margin. If Mr. motive feels completely secure in power, he'll be free to make the kind of compromises which are necessary for real peace between India and Pakistan..

"Much seconds to March eighth two thousand nineteen for the economist. These of the editor's picks every week in this program. We present a communist editor Zanny Minton betters selection from this week's edition of the economist newspaper cover this week looks at the most dangerous confrontation between Pakistan and India since they went to war in nineteen seventy one a suicide bombing in Kashmir followed by tit for tat sorties by Indian and Pakistan e warplanes has left the two nuclear-armed powers on the brink of a catastrophic escalation in the long run stability depends on Pakistan, ending it's indefensible support for terrorism. It's prime minister in ran con is edging dialogue. And inapplicable gesture has promised to return a captured Indian pilot, but the responsibility to stop a rush to. War all say lies with India's prime minister, Narendra moody because he faces an election in April. He faces the hardest and most consequential calculations. They could come to define his premiership. Also in this week's editor's picks. The Trump Kim summit woke on down to end without a deal. It could be a lot worse and the parable of three g capital bad recipe. The problems of the investment firm that controls Kroft Hines and other brands provide a timely reminder that cost cutting deals and debt go only so far. To hear every article from this week's issue of the economist. Subscribe now at economists dot com forward slash subscribe and get the full picture. Leaders. Moody's dangerous moment to nuclear powers are shooting. At each other. They are playing with fire. The armies of India and Pakistan often exchange fire across the front line in the disputed state of Kashmir when tensions rise one side will subject the other two blistering artillery barrage on occasion that you have sent soldiers on Farez into one another's territory, but since the feuding neighbours tested nuclear weapons in the late nineteen ninety s neither had dad send fighter jets across the frontier until this week after a terrorist group based in Pakistan launched an attack in the Indian controlled part of Kashmir that killed forty soldiers. India responded by bombing what it said was a terrorist training camp in the Pakistani state of Khyber pack Coon clan, Pakistan, retaliated by send. Nding jets of its own to bomb Indian targets in the ensuing. Air battle both sides claimed to have shot down, the others aircraft and Pakistan captured an Indian pilot miscalculation now could spell calamity. The fighting is already the fiercest between the two countries. Since India battled to expel Pakistani intruders from high in the Himalayas in nineteen ninety nine the initial Indian air raid struck not Pakistan's Bittu Kashmir, but well within Pakistan, proper and just one hundred kilometers from the capital Islamabad that in effect constituted a change in the rules of engagement between the two in deer in Pakistan. A so often at odds that there is a tendency to shrug off this spats, but not since their most recent full blown war in one nine hundred seventy one has the risk of escalation being so high the intention. Of Narendra Modi, India's prime minister in ordering the original abstract was simple, Pakistan has long backed terrorists who mount grizzly attacks in India, most notably in Mumbai in two thousand eight when jihadists who arrived by boat from Pakistan killed some one hundred sixty five people, although Pakistan's army promise, then to shutdown such extremist groups, it has not by responding more forcefully than usual to the latest outrage. Mr. Modi understandably wanted to signal that he was not willing to allow Pakistan to keep sponsoring terrorism in the long run stability depends on Pakistan, ending it's indefensible support for terrorism. It's prime minister Imran Khan is urging dialogue and in a promising gesture was due to release India's pilot presumably with the approval of the army chief who calls the shots on. Matters of security but in the short run. Mr. Modi shares the responsibility to stop a disastrous escalation because he faces an election in April. He faces the hardest and most consequential calculations. They could come to define his premiership. Mr. moody is always presented himself as a bold and resolute military leader who does not shrink from confronting Pakistan's provocations is taken to repeating a catchphrase from the film Erie. Which portrays a commander raid healed it against Pakistan in two thousand sixteen in response to a previous terrorist attack as a moment of chin, jutting grit. The all too plausible fear is that his own tendency to swagger along with domestic political pressures will spur him further down the spiral towards war. The ambiguity Mr. Modi's beliefs only deepens the danger he campaigned at the election in two thousand fourteen as a modernizer who would bring jobs and prosperity to India botch. His critics charge all his talk of development and reform is simply the fig-leaf for a lifelong commitment to a divisive Hindu. Nationalist agenda over the past five years. Mr. Modi has lived up neither to the hype new to the dia warnings the economy has grown strongly under his leadership. Why around seven percent a year? He has brought about reforms his predecessors had promised. But never delivered such as nationwide goods and services tax or GST, but unemployment is actually risen during Mr. Modi's tenure, according to leaked data that his government has been accused of trying to suppress the GS T was needlessly complex and costly to administer other pressing reforms the fallen by the wayside India's banks are still largely in state hands still prone to lend to the well-connected and as the election is drawn closer. Mr. Modi has resorted to politically expedient policies that are likely to harm the economy is government hounded the boss of. The central Bank out of office for keeping interest rates. High appointing a replacement who promptly cut them, and it is unveiled draft rules that would protect domestic ecommerce firms from competition from retailers such as Amazon. By the same token. Mr. Modi has not sparked the outright communal conflagration is critics. The economist included fretted about before he became prime minister. But his government has often displayed hostility to India's Muslim minority and sympathy for those who see Hinduism the religion of eighty percent of Indians as under threat from internal and external foes, he has appointed a bigoted Hindu prelate, Yogi Atta Yannis as chief minister of India's most populous state to progress. A member of his cabinet presented garlands of flowers to a group of Hindu men who had been convicted of lynching a Muslim for selling beef cows are sacred to Hindus and Mr. moody himself, suspended the elected government of Jammu and Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state and used force to suppress protests there against the central. Government leading to horrific civilian casualties. As reprehensible as all this is the Hindu zealots who stopped Mr. Modi's electro machine complained that he has not done enough to advance the Hindu cause and public dissatisfaction with his economic reforms has helped boost congress the main opposition party making the election more competitive than had been expected the temptation to fire up voters using heated brinkmanship with Pakistan will be huge Mr. Modi's made a career of playing with fire. He first rose to prominence as chief minister of Gujarat when the state was wracked by anti-muslim pogroms in two thousand and two although there is no evidence. He orchestrated the virus. He has shown no compunction about capitalizing on the popularity at one him in Hindu nationalist circles with a difficult. Election ahead eat. May think he can pull off the same trick again by playing the tough guy with Pakistan, but without actually getting into a fight. However, the price of miscalculation does not math thinking about western governments pushing for a diplomatic settlement at the UN. If Mr. Mody really is a patriot. He will now step back.
