This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Mehraj D Lone and Raman Kirpal are joined by journalist Seema Guha.

They discuss the Nupur Sharma controversy and the diplomatic row which followed. On comments against Prophet Muhammad, Seema says, “She should have known the repercussions. You can’t expect peace after commenting on the Prophet.” They also discuss the silence of Islamic countries on Muslims being targeted in India. Mehraj says, “They aren’t just leaders, they consider themselves the guardians of the faith.”

The panel also discusses Akshay Kumar’s movie Samrat Prithviraj and the politics of hate in movies.

This and a lot more, only on NL Hafta.
