On both left and right, India and Hindus are castigated for the unequal caste system. The only difference is that sometimes the ‘right’ actually supports it as a means to both racial and class inequality. Here we encounter the first problem. Caste was never based on race. [...]
Amazon series Man in the High Castle is based upon a book by the same name. Deviating quite substantially from the original book by Phillip K Dick written in 1962, it nevertheless keeps the basics of the plot. This is a world in which the Axis powers have won the war, with Germany having developed [...]
Former screen idol turned animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot was fined 20,000 euros by a court on France’s Indian Ocean island of La Reunion over a 2019 diatribe where she described its inhabitants as “savages”. “The natives have kept their savage genes,” the animal rights campaigner wrote in an open letter attacking the islanders for [...]
. In fact can we even use terms such as left and right-wing, because, with regard to Hindus, the Labour Party takes on a disturbing resemblance of the ultranationalist Nazi-style outfits which demonised people of colour?

Hence this state was built up with American financial and military aid. Relations with the war hawks only soured when it became too obvious that Pakistan was sabotaging attempts at stopping Islamic terrorism. Yet even with this support among western nations for Pakistan’s position of Kashmir remains. It is one of the few areas which [...]
Jeremy Corbyn has become notorious for demanding that India’s prime minister be banned from Britain, for his role the violence that engulfed Modi’s home state of Gujarat in 2002 when he was its chief minister.
