  • Imperialist ideology seems to threaten the world more than ever today. Particularly the nations of Asia, Africa, Latin America and especially the middle east. Even India in its colonial past has been severely affected by British imperialism --- whose aftermaths are visible to date.

    One of the revolutionary leaders who represented the fight against the idea of imperialism was Bhagat Singh. His brief life is marked by his radicalised resistance to Imperialism and the ideas of capitalism, communalism, and the caste system.

  • Anglo-Muhammadan Law is a mixture of English and Islamic laws, concepts, institutions, and jurisprudence that developed in British colonial India between the eighteenth and the twentieth centuries. Although not an official designation, “Anglo-Muhammadan law” came to be used as a term of convenience to distinguish this legal system from both the English and Islamic law.

    This law was an early effort to enforce Islamic law and is of importance to scholars and practitioners who are interested in contemporary efforts to institutionalize both Islamic criminal and civil law.

  • The extreme face of communalism started taking a definite shape after 1937. While there were instances from the past that paved the way for communalism to take such a fascist form, regardless of nationalist leaders trying their best to unite Hindus and Muslims of the country. In this episode, we attempt to bring out the explanations of what drove communalism to keep transitioning into a more violent form and how even nationalist leaders undesirably gave into it. We shall also look into the major controversies of the present that encircle INC and leaders who were at the forefront for indirectly giving into shaping the structure of unrest.

  • This episode continues to dive into the history of communalism in India and how it shaped the nation's social character. In the struggle of bringing Hindus and Muslims together, nationalist leaders gave way to communalism to spread its roots. Thus failing to bring the communal political ideology in accommodation with the secular political ideology. This episode also traces how the communal question was being attempted to tackle by the existing Nationalist forces.

  • India was not always a land of such constant communal clashes; the polarised hatred present in our world today finds its origins in our time under our British rulers. British’s communal policies, demands of minorities, and the reaction of the majority all give rise to communalism in India. Join us as we try to explore the origins of communal uprisings and the increase of differences in the country’s social fabric.

It is an attempt to trace the centre of Iqbal's complexities.
