The media must be free and fair, uninfluenced by corporate or state interests. That's why you, the public, need to pay to keep news free.


Hafta has gone behind the paywall. But since we love our listeners, here’s a sneak peek into this week’s episode.

Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Anand Vardhan, and Mehraj D Lone of Newslaundry are joined by journalist Faye D’souza to discuss how the Delhi election campaign has been marked by communal rhetoric and how Arvind Kejriwal attempted to play the Hindu card. They also talk about the situation in Kashmir, where former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have been held under the draconian Public Safety Act; the ongoing debate about Kunal Kamra’s ambush of Arnab Goswami; and the role of religion in Indian politics.

Produced by Ivneet Kaur, recorded by Anil Kumar, edited by Umrav Singh.
