Kashmir Article 370 scrapping shows BJP wants AUTHORITARIAN INDIA – Vijay Prashad (E782)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Indian author and Director of the Tricontinental Institute for Social Research Vijay Prashad on India’s revocation of Article 370 and the 35th Amendment for Jammu and Kashmir. He discusses this as a sign that Indian federalism is under threat and that the BJP wants an authoritarian, centralized India, why the move was anti-democratic and will alienate Kashmiris, why viewing Kashmir through the lens of terrorism is narrow, his belief that a deal was done between India and China to allow India to revoke Article 370 and for China to keep Aksai Chin and also the imprisonment of Brazil’s Lula Da Silva. Next we speak to the Grayzone’s Aaron Mate on the collapse of Russiagate and the Mueller investigation, sanctions on Venezuela and regime change efforts, regime change efforts against Iran and why they’re doomed to fail and more!
