The Agenda with Steve Paikin (Audio)
With more than one billion people casting a vote, elections in India are often lauded as a "festival of democracy." Yet, both Freedom House and the V-Dem Institute have downgraded India's status as a democracy - from "free" to "partly free" and from "electoral democracy" to "electoral autocracy," respectively. Some issues in question are legal discriminatory practices against Indian Muslims and other minorities, and the recent censoring of a new BBC documentary on Prime Minister Modi. How has this affected India's standing as the world's largest democracy? We ask: Shekhar Gupta, editor-in-chief, ThePrint; Neeti Nair, historian, University of Virginia; Vivek Dehejia, economist, Carlton University; and Sanjay Ruparelia political scientist, Toronto Metropolitan University.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Pluto Press: Radicals in Conversation
Since the election of Narendra Modi in 2014, India has changed dramatically. As the world attempts to grapple with its trajectory towards authoritarianism and ethnonationalism, little attention has been paid to the linkages between Modi's India and the governments from which it has drawn inspiration, as well as military and technical support. India may once have publicly condemned Zionism as a form of racism, but times have changed, and the state of Israel has increasingly become a cornerstone of India's foreign policy. Looking to emulate Israel in policy and practice, the recent annexation of Kashmir increasingly resembles Israel's settler-colonial project in the occupied West Bank. The ideological and political linkages between the two states are alarming; their brands of ethnonationalism deeply intertwined. This month we are joined on the show by Azad Essa, an award-winning journalist, and author of the new book, Hostile Homelands: The New Alliance Between India and Israel. We talk about the history of the shifting relationship between the two countries, India's waning commitment to the Palestinian cause and the Israeli military industrial complex. We also discuss the influence of European fascism as well as Zionism on the development of the Hindu nationalist movement in the 20th century. Finally, Azad shares his insights on the significance of the relationship between Modi and Netanyahu, and the deteriorating situation in Kashmir.
Oggi i riflettori si accendono sull'India, dove oltre al G20, si svolge il Raisina Dialogue. Ospite d'onore della conferenza di geopolitica è stata la premier Giorgia Meloni, che ha parlato di "Mediterraneo allargato" e della collaborazione con la potenza guidata da Narendra Modi. Ne abbiamo parlato con Diego Maiorano, docente di Storia e sistemi politici dell'India contemporanea all'Università Orientale di Napoli, Ugo Tramballi, responsabile del desk India all'Ispi, e Zoya Hazan, professoressa emerita di Scienze politiche alla Jawaharlal Nehru University di Nuova Delhi.
In the United States, elements of the religious right fuel fears of an existential Islamic threat, spreading anti-Muslim rhetoric into mainstream politics. In Indonesia, Muslim absolutists urge suppression of churches and minority sects, fostering a climate of rising intolerance. In India, Narendra Modi's radical supporters instigate communal riots and academic censorship in pursuit of their Hindu nationalist vision. Outbreaks of religious intolerance are usually assumed to be visceral and spontaneous. But in Hate Spin, Cherian George shows that they often involve sophisticated campaigns manufactured by political opportunists to mobilize supporters and marginalize opponents. Right-wing networks orchestrate the giving of offense and the taking of offense as instruments of identity politics, exploiting democratic space to promote agendas that undermine democratic values. George calls this strategy “hate spin”—a double-sided technique that combines hate speech (incitement through vilification) with manufactured offense-taking (the performing of righteous indignation). It is deployed in societies as diverse as Buddhist Myanmar and Orthodox Christian Russia. George looks at the world's three largest democracies, where intolerant groups within India's Hindu right, America's Christian right, and Indonesia's Muslim right are all accomplished users of hate spin. He also shows how the Internet and Google have opened up new opportunities for cross-border hate spin. George argues that governments must protect vulnerable communities by prohibiting calls to action that lead directly to discrimination and violence. But laws that try to protect believers' feelings against all provocative expression invariably backfire. They arm hate spin agents' offense-taking campaigns with legal ammunition. Anti-discrimination laws and a commitment to religious equality will protect communities more meaningfully than misguided attempts to insulate them from insult. Cherian George is Associate Professor in the Department of Journalism at Hong Kong Baptist University.

Across India, measures targeting meat consumption have amplified since Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected in 2014, from the closure of meat shops to increasing the jail term for cow slaughtering. Hindu extremists are leading this wave of "vegetarian nationalism". Butchers in the state of Haryana, who are predominantly Muslim, have been forced to close their shops every Tuesday, while "cow protectors" stop and search vehicles they suspect of transporting the animals – actions that can turn deadly. According to a 2019 Human Rights Watch report, at least 44 people have been killed by "cow protectors" in India since 2015. Thirty-six of them were Muslims. Our correspondents report.

‘India: The Modi Question' is a two-part documentary series by the BBC about the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his relationship with the Muslim minority in India. The government has used the emergency provisions of IT Rules 2021 to take down the documentary from websites as well as social media posts with links or snippets of the documentary. Screenings of the documentary in universities around the country have been disrupted by university administration and police.

Björn Þór Sigbjörnsson og Bogi Ágústsson ræddu um Arne Treholt sem var dæmdur í 20 ára fangelsi fyrir njósnir 1985 en hann lést á sunnudaginn. Treholt var á laun í sambandi við sovésku leyniþjónustuna KGB og lét fulltrúa hennar upplýsingar í té og þáði fé fyrir. Hann neitaði þó alltaf að hann hefði upplýst um ríkisleyndarmál og ógnað öryggi Noregs. Þá ræddu þeir fjölmiðlafrelsi á Indlandi en forsætisráðherra landsins, Narendra Modi, hefur ekki mikið umburðarlyndi gagnvart fjölmiðlum sem gagnrýna hann. Skattalögreglunni var sigað á breska ríkisútvarpið BBC vegna heimildarmyndar sem indverska forsætisráðherranum er ekki að skapi. Modi hefur á undanförnum árum þrengt mjög að fjölmiðlum og Indland hefur fallið niður í 150. sæti á lista samtaka blaðamanna án landamæra yfir fjölmiðlafrelsi. Þá ræddu Björn Þór og Bogi um Nicolu Sturgeon, sem tilkynnti óvænt í gær að hún ætlaði að hætta sem fyrsti ráðherra Skotlands og leiðtogi Skoska þjóðarflokksins, SNP. Allir eru sammála um að sjónarsviptir verði að henni og að andstæðingar hennar fagni brotthvarfi hennar því hún hefur verið öflugur leiðtogi, mælsk, rökföst og með mestu skörungum í stjórnmálabaráttunni á Bretlandi.

This week, A'ndre talks to Dr. Joyojeet Pal, an Indian politics expert and an Associate Professor of Information at the University of Michigan's School of Information, on all things Narendra Modi. They discuss Modi's unconventional rise to power and the controversies surrounding the BBC's documentary, which implicated Modi in the 2002 Gujarat Riots, which result in the deaths of 1,000, predominantly Muslim, civilians. Dr. Pal also highlights unclassified State Department documents, painting a picture of the U.S. Government's evolution in its stance on Modi -- from a Visa ban in the 2000s to the revocation of that ban before he became prime minister -- and the role that relevant U.S. political/policy figures and Indian Diaspora groups played in that timeline. They also discuss recent scandals involving Asia's once-richest-man, Gautam Adani, whose Adani Group recorded $120b in market value loss after the Hindenburg Group, an investment research firm, released a damning report alleging stock manipulation and fraud, amongst other allegations. Dr. Pal provides his prognosis on Indian politics, including how Rahul Gandhi, heir to the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty and current opposition leader, is attempting a political rebrand after two landslide losses to Modi in 2014 and 2019.

In 2016, Ashley J. Tellis published an important paper in which he unpacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for India to become a leading, rather than a balancing, power on the global stage. This call reflected an important change in how the country's top political leadership conceived of its role in international politics.In the years following, Ashley and a group of collaborators have been working to flesh out what becoming a leading power would actually mean in practice. Their findings have finally been published in a new volume, Grasping Greatness: Making India a Leading Power, edited by Ashley along with Bibek Debroy and C. Raja Mohan.Ashley holds the Tata Chair for Strategic Affairs at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. On the show this week, Ashley joins Milan to talk about his latest project. He and Milan discuss India's internal debate about its growing global role, the ideological constraints to realizing India's economic potential, and lingering doubts about India's liberal commitments.

Cet État de 33 millions d'habitants gouverné par le Parti communiste indien caracole en tête de tous les indicateurs de développement. La santé et l'éducation y sont gratuites. L'étonnant succès de cette expérience démocratique fait qu'on parle de « modèle du Kerala ». Mais tout n'est pas rose au pays des « rouges ». De notre correspondant à Bangalore, Côme Bastin avec Ashik Sumakaran Ce jour-là à Trivandrum, la crème du Communist Party of India célèbre les 70 ans de la maison d'édition marxiste Prabhat. « Bienvenue au Kerala, Camarade. Vous savez, les communistes ont été acteurs majeurs de l'indépendance de l'Inde », lance C. Divakaran. « Influencés par la révolution russe de 1917, nous avons défait les monarques, redistribué les terres, instauré l'éducation gratuite, et la santé pour tous, s'enthousiasme cet ancien ministre de l'Agriculture. C'est pour ça qu'aujourd'hui les Kéralais ont l'espérance de vie la plus longue d'Inde ! » Octobre rouge, camarade, révolution… Un lexique qui peut surprendre. Comme les drapeaux rouges, les portraits de Marx et de Staline dans les rues. Mais c'est bien par les urnes que les communistes sont arrivés au pouvoir au Kerala. En alternance avec le parti du Congrès de Gandhi, ils y ont appliqué des politiques résolument de gauche. « Ici, le salaire minimum pour un ouvrier est de 800 roupies par jour. Dans le Gujarat, l'État de Narendra Modi, c'est 300 roupies. Beaucoup pensaient qu'un tel modèle allait freiner la croissance, décrit Thomas Isaac, ancien ministre des Finances. Au contraire, le PIB par tête du Kerala est supérieur au reste du pays. » Les chiffres lui donnent raison. Le Kerala bénéficie du plus haut taux d'alphabétisation, à 97%, et de l'espérance de vie la plus longue, à 76 ans. Récemment, c'est dans le domaine de la santé que le « modèle du Kerala » a fait parler de lui. À l'accueil d'un centre de santé publique, dans le village de Poozhanad, Vinod Kumar et sa femme présentent leur carte « eHealth » – ils avaient auparavant pris un rendez-vous en ligne. Celle-ci contient les données de santé de leur fille et lui permet d'être pris en charge immédiatement. « Au Kerala, grâce aux centres de santé familiaux, c'est beaucoup plus facile pour les villageois d'accéder aux traitements, explique le docteur Vinoj, 43 ans, en charge de l'établissement. Avec sa carte, monsieur reçoit des soins à hauteur de 350 euros par an. Nous avons aussi des infirmières qui visitent les domiciles. » Endettement et fuite des cerveaux On trouve dans le Kerala quelque 500 centres de santé comparables. Hématologie, en biochimie ou neurologie : la gamme de soins qui y est dispensée est impressionnante. Ce maillage sanitaire a permis de mieux tester, tracer et isoler la population lors du pic du Covid. « Où est le hic ? », se demandera le sceptique. « Nous avons la dette la plus élevée de tous les États indiens, parce que les communistes ont tendance à trop dépenser », alerte Shashi Tharoor, célèbre diplomate devenu député du parti du Congrès dans la capitale Trivandrum. Nous n'avons quasiment pas d'industrie. Nous avons le taux de chômage le plus élevé en Inde pour les jeunes : 40% ! » « La bureaucratie entraîne la fuite des cerveaux du Kerala vers des contrées plus capitalistes », regrette Raghuchandran Nair, président de la Chambre de commerce et d'industrie. « Même si la situation s'améliore. » Conscient de l'urgence de séduire la jeunesse, le gouvernement communiste a en effet lancé un des plus grands incubateurs technologiques d'Inde. À Cochin, les gratte-ciel poussent, signe que la classe moyenne trouve racine. Le succès de la biennale d'art contemporain, plus grand festival du genre en Asie, participe aussi de ce nouveau souffle. « Dans ce quartier, il y avait beaucoup de dépôts d'épices pour les bateaux. Mon rêve était d'y construire un village artistique, raconte Firoz Baba, artiste de 50 ans. Depuis la biennale, artistes et acheteurs du monde entier affluent. On a ouvert treize galeries dans ce bâtiment ! » Une réussite que les communistes aiment revendiquer. Mais pour Shashi Tharoor, le « modèle du Kerala » n'est l'apanage d'aucun parti. « Au XIXe siècle, le niveau d'inégalité était absolument terrible au Kerala. La société [locale] a donc vu naître des intellectuels réformateurs et anti-castes. La culture égalitaire et communiste y a puisé ses racines. » Au-delà des partis, le Kerala est porté par sa société civile. On y trouve le plus grand nombre d'ONG par habitant. Ici, 26% de musulmans et 18% de chrétiens cohabitent en paix avec les hindous. Le parti nationaliste BJP de Narendra Modi a d'ailleurs perdu son unique siège au sein de l'Assemblée en 2021. « Le problème, c'est que les Kéralais réfléchissent trop », a justifié le malheureux candidat.
