As a Kashmiri, who now lives in us, this report misses so many points. Overall residents of my state have been struggling with poverty and terrorism, this change was long due but it won't change anything unless we are really treated equal.

LOL uhhh the country of India was "formed" in 1947 by the British???? 🤔 I love the NYT but this is erroneous. l had to hit the pause button and comment for the first time after I heard that.

I'm normally not a commenter. but today's episode put my back up when the guest first said India was "granted" independence. and then he followed that up with India was formed as a Hindu country. that's complete nonsense. India is constitutionally a secular country and that's always been the spirit of the country inspite of the contingent of religious majoritarians which is only to be expected in any country. this is exactly why the recent developments are shocking to many Indians.
