Indian high commissioner SLAMS Pakistan over Kashmir standoff (E835)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Indian High Commissioner to the UK Ruchi Ghanashyam. She discusses the importance of Republic Day for India, which falls on the January 26, and responds to allegations made by the Pakistani high commissioner over Kashmir. She discusses why Narendra Modi’s BJP scrapped Article 370, criticism of the Indian government’s lockdown of the region, why Pakistan is the aggressor in Kashmir, and also responds to Imran Khan’s allegations of similarities between Modi’s government and the Nazis. In the second half, the high commissioner discusses UK-India relations, whether the history of colonialism has any impact on today’s relations, the prospect of a post-Brexit trade deal, and more!
