Episode details

After an eruption of violence between Hindus and Muslims on the streets of Leicester, how much of the tension and rivalry has been imported from nationalists in India?

Adrian Goldberg hears from Shockat Adam who grew up in the area where disturbances happened and is now a community activist with MEND – Muslim Engagement and Development. He believes the fires are being stoked by Hindutva – Hindu nationalism based on the sub continent.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
