G20 Aesthetics: Modi’s Brutal Delhi Facelift

BY BINOY KAMPMARK Photograph Source: Prime Minister’s Office – GODL-India Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi really wanted to make an impression for his guests and dignitaries, and coarse realities would simply not do. The occasion of the G20 summit presented him with a chance to give the city an aggressive touch-up, touching up a good number of its residents along the way, not to mention the city’s animal life as well. As for those remaining nasties, these could be dressed up, covered, and ignored. Elements of the Potemkin Village formulae – give the impression the peasants are well-fed, for instance – could be used when needed. One Delhi resident, Saroaj Devi, informed The Guardian about the sharp treatment meted out to him and those living in poverty b...

Photograph by Umer Asif for The Kashmir Walla “..there is one and only solution that is a separate homeland, where we live and protect ourselves with arms, we should be given training.

There is no second option for the Government of India” (Rakesh Handoo, 2021) “It has happened in the Middle East, you have to look, if the Israeli people can do it. We can also do it” (Sandeep Chakravorty, 2019) The two statements made above post the unilateral abrogation of Article 370 by a Kashmiri Pandit activist and the other by India’s Consul General in New York at a pri...

Muzzling the Media: Witch-hunting Against The Kashmir Walla

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailTelegram On August 20, the website and social media handles of The Kashmir Walla, a Kashmir based media platform were restricted in India by the government without any notice. Soon after, the organisation was asked to vacate its office in Srinagar by the landlord. Earlier in February 2022, the editor-in-chief of the organisation, Fahad Shah was arrested by the police and charged under draconian UAPA and PSA. Sajad Gul, who worked as trainee reporter at The Kashmir Walla is also behind bars under PSA. The pattern clearly reflects the attempts by the central government to intimidate and harass independent journalists and press in Kashmir to muzzle the truth.

India: Let Our Flag Fly High Against The Symbol of Colonialism and Slavery

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailTelegram On Thursday September 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, speaking at the newly inaugurated Kartavya Path at India Gate said that “Rajpath" [translated from the English Kingsway] was a symbol of slavery.

Again, the PM's office said that this change was an attempt to move away from India’s colonial past.

Resolution on Perspective, Orientation and Tasks of Anti-Fascist Resistance

Documents of CPIML11th Party Congress,Vinod Mishra Nagar (Patna, Bihar),16-20 February, 2023 1.   The Narendra Modi government has now been in power for more than eight years. If the first term of the Modi government was an early warning about the shape of things to come, the second term has been a period of rapid escalation of a concerted multi-pronged offensive. With Amit Shah as the Union Home Minister and Ajit Doval as the National Security Advisor, the state has become unprecedentedly repressive and vindictive. Constitutional democracy in India today is reeling under the combination of a rampaging state and a host of private armies and vigilante squads emboldened by the patronage and impunity granted by the regime. This combination of unmitigated state repression and...
