Description

Two months after India’s Hindu-nationalist government stripped the state of Jammu and Kashmir of its autonomy, 7m people are still in limbo. How will it end? Could America’s angrily partisan politics be explained by a rise in loneliness? We visit the Midwest to find out. And, companies are going big on “financial wellness” initiatives for their employees.

Totally biased, not properly researched, host doesnt have the understanding of the issue of how India has been suffering the pakistani terrorism for past 70 yrs and how kashmiri pandits were butchered in 90s. Article 370 abrogation noe give equal rights to every kashmiri and the internet ban is to save people from terrorists attacks and that too have been relaxed. And stop calling this as hindu nationalist govt as indians from every sect voted this party and wanted this measure to be taken in kashmir.

Unsurprisingly the episode does not discuss how non-Muslims minorities were treated in Kashmir when the insurgency commenced and how Hindus were exiled from the place they had called home for many generations.

I really dislike the correspondent speaking for the emotions/views of all/most Indians. State facts, cite sources, don't just make idle claims like the people want to show the Muslims who's strong or whatnot 😒 Really disappointed by this irresponsibility with which you're representing Indian communities.

Hindu nationalism has nothing to do with this issue 🙄 That is a whole different can of worms. This decision is not about Hindus or Muslims, it's about the government taking steps to assert that Jammu and Kashmir is part of India, giving the central government more power to make decisions concerning the state and bringing it into the same system of governance which is present in other parts of the country.

Typical anti Hindu and Indian sentiment from the Economist. Do you refer to the US or UK govt as Christian nationalist?
