This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal, Mehraj D Lone, and Anand Vardhan are joined by author Hilal Ahmed.

They discuss rising religious intolerance and visible polarisation in India. “India is a highly diverse country to lead to such a situation,” says Hilal, responding to Abhinandan's question about whether the country was hurtling towards genocide.

The conversation also covers the Supreme Court’s oral observations about Nupur Sharma’s derogatory remarks on Prophet Muhammad. “It may be okay for a layman to put such views forward but when something like this comes from the highest court of justice in India, it is problematic,” Anand says.

This and a lot more, only on NL Hafta.
