The podcast where we discuss the news of the week.
This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Jayashree Arunachalam and Raman Kirpal are joined by The News Minute’s senior news editor Shabbir Ahmed.
On same-sex marriage, Jayashree begins by questioning the separation of powers in praxis. “Not an oasis but a mirage,” says Abhinandan about the Supreme Court of India.
In the context of Israel and Palestine, Abhinandan calls out Indian media houses for being more excited to cover international violence rather than domestic conflicts. Shabbir and Jayashree raise concerns about media propaganda and the anti-Muslim rhetoric of mainstream news, both in India and outside.
Shabbir then takes the panel through TNM’s new series on Hindutva organisations in Tamil Nadu and how the BJP has ambitious plans.
This and a lot more, tune in!
