This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Jayashree Arunachalam, Raman Kirpal, and Mehraj D Lone are joined by author and activist Amrit Wilson and journalist Sunny Hundal.
The discussion revolves around the Leicester violence, what triggered it, and the city’s history. Sunny theorises on why the police should have taken action rather than leaving it to community leaders; Amrit says the police consistently tries to avoid “community conflicts”. The panel then discusses whether Hindutva is spreading abroad and why.
The conversation then shifts to the NIA raids on the Popular Front of India across several states and the arrests of its members, and whether Wipro was right in firing employees accused of “moonlighting”.
This and a lot more, only on NL Hafta. Tune in!
