On Al Jazeera: Arundhati Roy on her novel, capitalism, Gandhi, Mandela



first I was lucky enough to catch best-selling Indian author and activist Arundhati Roy a couple of days ago I asked her first whether she was influenced by her mother's activism my mother influenced me in incredible ways you know well we are like now when when I mean I I actually ran away from home when I was City what is that about it was serious but I keep saying that we like to nuclear-powered states god me too close to each other not so two powerful women I see okay so I want to talk about this book the god of small things it has been taught in university lectures debated it won the Man Booker Prize were you taken by surprise by its appeal and what do you think was so appealing about the book before I wrote the god of small things I mean I studied architecture and then I worked in cinema for a while and when I and you know the films were sort of lunatic fringe cinema nothing you know mainstream nothing successful and when I decided to write a novel I thought it would be even less so you know to tell you the truth I have no idea why something you know especially a work of literature or a work of art I don't think any of any of us know why something touches many people we don't know you know and that's why it's art let's talk about your nonfiction work I'll start with this essay on capitalism and you talk about the new rulers of India the Ambani's and the titles and you describe what's happening in India by describing the sunset over Ambani's superlative home 27 stories with a helipad or several of them what exactly is your problem with the Ambani's and their opulence well it's not my problem I think it's India's problem you know that you know the house and the opulence of the house is just a minor part of it you know that's just the manifestation like the Ambani is worth forty four billion their market capitalization I mean they have controlling shares in 27 television plus they give these huge funds to foreign universities plus they have these foundations through which they kind of fund activists or documentary so they've covered the government the Opposition in the media the court the elections they can buy news they can buy everything you know with that kind of money in a country where eighty percent live on less than twenty rupees which is you know half a dollar a day you have more poor people in India than the poorest countries of Africa put together you don't hear this right because India is a superpower I want to talk about the ghosts that you write about in this essay you talk about the 250,000 farmers debt-ridden who've killed themselves you say but which of asanas was going to cast the first stone not me who lives off royalties from corporate publishing houses we all watch Titus Kai we surf the net with Tata we ride in Tata taxis we stay in Tata hotels so arundhati tell me do you feel guilty yourself about being part of the middle class and your title lifestyle well I certainly feel uncomfortable but I don't feel guilty because you you know they have created a system where if you're not in the system then you're being hunted in the forest or you're displaced and you're going is like some poor person from tribunal to tribunal and they want to create a politics of guilt Gandhi created a politics of guilt you know whereas here what we have to fight is a political fight otherwise you can take the boutique option you know I'll go and live in some forest and eat organic food and you know use brown paper bags or whatever but that just helps you we need a new imagination perhaps it begins with forcing capitalism to tolerate a non capitalist society in its midst so that it accepts the fact that it can't have everything you also talked about or you criticize the infrastructure development the infrastructure plans where you come from and you specifically mention the Delhi Mumbai industrial corridor it comprises three two lines expressways airports power plants the government probably calls it progress the capitalists probably call it progress are you anti progress we have seen so many decades of this progress and that is what has led us to this huge disparity you know we've seen the dams being built in the names of the poor and then go the water going to the car manufacturers and the sugarcane farmers you know so now that argument doesn't work in India anymore it doesn't wash it everyone has has got the picture we've been told people have been told all this is to generate jobs but no there are no jobs the people are just residue you know that need to be liked disposed off you have hundreds of thousands of paramilitary forces closing in on villages in the forests which are basically sitting on natural resources and trying to empty those villages so thousands are being killed thousands are in jail you know there's a fascinating theme that you explore in your nonfiction work you talk about perception management and you talk about the corporate philanthropist you are talking about how alikes of the titles the Ambani brothers they are financing and sponsoring artists festivals literature looks good that's the veneer but your interpretation of that is that they are buying out potential revolutionaries they are buying out the voices that should hold corporate power accountable and you liken it to what happened in the United States in 1914 with JD Rockefeller tell me about him tell me about his foundation and how it bought or silenced the radical voices it was I mean now it sounds quite normal right for a for an industrial house to have a charity or of and Iran NGOs NGOs are like the you know new worlds missionaries but in those days it was a brilliant move where you you took the profits from your business and you funnel it into these charities which were completely non transparent completely non accountable and could then move into making policy and so on so the Rockefeller the Ford and the Carnegie foundations actually sort of kiks worked very closely the CIA they kick-started they bought the land for the UN they started this thing called the Foreign Relations Council and the men from these councils then almost every World Bank president has been a member of the Foreign Relations Council so you create these kind of overlapping cells you know and they run the world you know and they are themselves very non transparent but they are busy millions of dollars are being spent in Africa and in India you know asking for transparency asking for a rule of law as long as they make the laws you know you do talk about how the Rockefeller or Rockefeller in particular basically silenced the voice of Martin Luther King of the Black Consciousness movement stiff because Black Consciousness movement how did he do this hey by funding the moderates you know and gradually Eddie edging out radical movements but in the case of Martin Luther King you know beginning the Martin Luther King foundation and then slowly kind of changing its program from everything that Martin Luther King ever stood for so you actually it's not just a man but the memory itself that is so dangerous that you have to change it oh you have something to say about Nelson Mandela who is seen as this icon the likes of Mandela after taking the money from these foundations they now become part of the system so I earned that what do we do do we not have icons to look up to anymore well we I mean these are certainly not necessarily the icons you know for me somebody like Nelson Mandela or even somebody like Gandhi I object to you know defying them because I think they committed plenty mistakes you know that doesn't mean you have to trash them or jump on them or jump on their memories or what they did but we have to see thank you very much entity I've loved chatting to you and I look forward to the next book and the essays please keep them coming okay

  1. She has so called nobel disease. Just because she won a booker prize she thinks she is expert at everything. In particular, she is illiterate economically and even socially about mandela and gandhi.

  2. Sickularism is a disease introduced in the constitution by Indira Gandhi, Ambedkar did not allow Nehru to add this word in the constitution
    I am am Indian Hindu
    My Great Great Great Grand Parents were forced to migrate from Sindh to Rajasthan when Yazid hejaj al Yusuf the same person who killed 4 companions of Prophet Mohammed sent his general Mohammed bin Qasim to invade India because a hindu king Raja Dahir gave refuge to Imam Hussain family & companions, Mohammed bin Qassim & his army plundered 80 million hindus & buddhists on the way, Until he was driven back by Bapa Rawal whose name till this date given to a city in Pakistan called Rawalpindi.
    My Great Great Grand parents were forced to migrate back from jaisalmer to sindh, when Alauddin Khalji a muslim sultanate, in 1303 CE lay siege to the Chittor Fort of Raja Ratan Sen, the Rajput ruler to steal his wife Rani padmavati, who was forced to perform Johur.
    Meanwhile Our cousins the sikhs were lost thier necks & children trying to protect us.
    In 1947 once again, My Grand Parents were given no choice, Either leave our ancestral home in sindhi over night & flee to India or be killed or forcefully converted to Islam. This happened as our leaders Nehru & Jinnah were both power hungry & were bribed by British to Partition India & Pakistan. The British gave away the birth place of Hindu & Sikh religion, our mecca & vatican & a 10000 year old Vedic heritage was given away to the muslims.
    When we arrived in India, we learned Nehru made a constitution that gave muslims & christians right to teach in their respective religion in their convents & Madrassas. But Hindus in a Majority India were not given right to open Gurukuls or even teach Vedas in our schools.
    We were told the partition happened due to religion & so India will be for hindus & Pakistan for Muslims, this happened because the 90% Muslims voted to create Pakistan. But when we came here to India barely surviving our lives, we found during the partition the population of Muslims was 92 million muslims in Undivided India. The population of muslims who went to Pakistan from India was 5 million and the Population of muslims that went from India to Bangladesh (East Pakistan) was 5 million. So at the time of partition 82 million muslims stayed back in India and only 10 million muslims went to Pakistan and Bangladesh (East Pakistan). This despite the fact that 90% of the muslim population had voted to create Pakistan. So East and West Pakistan took 10% of the muslim population but took 35% of the land and resources. We were told Nehru & Gandhi allowed Muslims to stay in India. But hindus who stayed back could not survive the 29% who stayed back in Pakistan were killed, raped & focefully converted.
    Soon after we were barely recovering our lives in refugee camps in India, lost our all our property our loved one, we were told Nehru created Hindu code bill which means Hindu cannot marry multiple wifes, but muslims can marry. This allowed the muslim population to multiple by the hindu population was controlled.
    We noted our temples were controlled by government IAS officers, but churches & mosques were handled by christian & muslim trusts. In 1990 our brothers faced forced exodus from Kashmir.
    We barely survived the 75 years of fake Independence & anti Hindu rule of congress party of India.
    During this time we were scared to stop the Muslims from cutting cow in front of Hindu temples. Muslims posted Beef party videos on the youtube to belittle the hindus. We were being falsely branded as Saffron terrorists, one by one our religious leaders were sent to Jails in false cases. We were scared to be hindu, branded at sanghi. Fed up of this persecution & lies, We voted in large majority to bring Modi as PM, after 65 years of atrocities. The congress bribed News channels, Biased Journalists & English news papers lied non-stop to defame & scare the hindus. We were scared to even implement the beef ban mentioned in the directive principle of the constitution, which congress party never implemented for 65 years.
    In 1984 we seen the sikh riots killings by congress party goons.
    Today 2019 we are so scared that congress party may come back & restart the Persecution of Hindus, the congress party may revive fake saffron terrorism/ Intolerance of India is a imaginary term marketed with the help of Amir Khan & Naseruddin shah.
    I am hindu scared to be hindu in hindu majority India

  7. Truth has 360 degree purity. Each person views their views half true or false.Some are none

  8. Arundhati nailed it! Why wouldnt the host let Arundati finish talking??

  9. I need the weed she smokes … f** she never saw any real issue in life and is concerned about poor, that’s cool and she even bashes Gandhi. She is a confused soul who misunderstood everything..

  10. Suzanna/Arundhati Roy is shallow and a hypocrite. She marched with Islamic terrorists and never protested against the ethnic cleaning of Hindus from Kashmir.

  11. BS..the very names she criticizes have brought 300 million out of poverty in India…lets contrast that with her contributions…she is an example of a misleading low-life parasite…

  12. The difference between her and the people she talks about is the same difference between a beggar and the person who gives alms to the him/her…

  13. Pity the interviewer just popped one question after another, without engaging Arundhati Roy in conversation, to expound on her erudite responses.

  14. what a silly interviewer !!! i don't think she even understood what roy was saying.

  15. Is not India's problem. It`s a global problem: the New World Order:

  17. Every democracy has highs and lows
    That can never be resolved with communism
    Democracy can succeed by only willingness

  19. all I see is a pathetic support group that can't digest the fact that INDIA is prospering …. cause that will kill their narrative/ammo/bread and butter….i.e. byatch bout your mother land/ sing for your supper……. Arundathi Roy I wonder how you seep at night? no where have you provided any meaning full suggestion to improve your country nor have you contributed to your country… all you have done through out your life is sell your mother land to make money …..

  20. Who's creating systeem whore arundhati how tata and ambani begin whore arundhati allah loves your ass whore arundhati

  21. The Gandhi myth. Everybody praises his non-violence. Have there not been others? What about Subhas Chandra Bose, Netaji, he was able to create bounds, to Japan, he tried with Germany, but Hitler refused. What was the fight of Netaji about? What was his motivation? If we are not talking about this, it all remained in the fog.

  22. This looks like a highly edited version of the interview. Interviewer just jumping from 1 question to the other. It just gives u a shallow understanding of what is there in the interviewees mind.

  23. She has problems with Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Ambanies, Tatas, Rockefellers….infrastructure, growth, prosperity, armed forces fighting terrorism and anti national elements…she loves jihadi dicks…Bitch…!!

  24. Look at her talking about Ambanis….so mindless….bhenchod gand mai Burnol laaga ke soo ja..sab theek ho jayega…aur according to her 80% of the population lives on less then 20 Rs / day….Ha ha ha ha ha….Chutiya kahiki kitna jhooth bolti hai……!!

  28. Aj is open anti Hindu anti India channel we 900 million Hindus knows about it what abt Arabs who are richest oil mf why don't they help poor Arabs in gulf nations so f off and the black anchor is considered slave according to Arab ideology

  29. The interviewer shotguns questions, while AR responds with answers too deep to move from the problem. Maybe I'm miscalculating the issue, but AR could inhabit any physical body, and see the place of brevity of it's truth. A good soul is the smallest mouth eternity would venture to speak. AR is talking the geopolitical physics of life and death, and being insulted by 10 minutes of modernity traveling at the speed of war. Yet, she is wrapped in the armor of a polite smile. Awe inspiring!

  30. we are brothers and sisters, does not matter we are hindus, muslims, sikh, issai, buddhist still we are all Indus wasi and all brothers and sisters, we cannot identify ourselves as hindus cause hindu is a forign word not even mentioned in vedas aur bhagwad geeta, the word hindu was given by our islamic captors and attackers from the west.
    Irrespective of which religion we want to practice it is a private matter but we are all products of Indus valley. I want you to listen to what I say today with an open mind and digest this and a part of history, just because we had a violent history with a lot of corruption does not mean we need to live in animosity and hatred for the rest of our lives. The people with vested interest have used hatred to poison our minds against each other. We need to be brave to acknowledge facts and not fall into the same trap that our forefathers were exposed to. For this we must first know the real facts and then learn to move forward with universal brotherhood. I say this cause unlike what many of you have told religion was made of universal brotherhood but it was hijacked along the line, due to rich people who wanted to control people and hold on to the power. Irrespective of your religion there are corruptions and you have become a pawn in the hands of few powerful people, nothing more.

    Hindus should know the fact that we remember ourselves as followers of hindus is enough evidence that there is corruption in our religious facts. Our religion is not hindu but Sanatan Dharma and Sanatan Dharma is not even a religion it is a green practice which explains preservance of earth and our duties (karma) as a human being. The Mughals who ruled India were the exact same people who first attacked and killed Arabs and after conversion to Islam were diverted to hindustan. The rule of the moghals was brutal and no different from the ISIS we know today, the hindus were afraid to teach their own religion to their children for fear that they will be killed, kidnaped or raped. 1000 years of disconnect from own religion is long time for superstitions to be introduced, when the mughal went the British corrupted the vedic scripts using the Germans. Today sanskrit is more studied in Germany then in India. And to the muslims of Indian, Pakistani and Bengali descendants I want to say with sadness you are our brothers and sister who were victims of rapes and forcefully converted by arabs and mongol invaders, some of you infact agreed to convert out of fear and due to rewards. But your faith is least of my worry, so long that you understand the difference between the preachings of prophet Mohammed vs corrutions introduced subsequent to his death.

    Infact I want to assure there is no conflict between preachings of prophet Mohammed and that of vedic ways of sanatan dharma followers. Infact Prophet Muhammad declared, “There was a prophet of God in Hindustan who is dark in color and his name was Kahan [Krishna]” (History of Hamadan Dailmi Chapter Al-Kaaf). Some critics allege this is not a Sahih (authentic) hadith, and while their assessment could be valid, their conclusion that the hadith should be discarded is invalid. Basic Islamic jurisprudence holds that if a hadith does not contradict the Quran, then it may be accepted as valid. Islamist deny this important hadith which was written 1000s of years ago, which shows unity of all religions, including christianisty and buddhism. People with vested interest want to retain power hence want to deny. I whole heartedly believe that we are all children of one allah also called iswar, prabhu, god, yhwe (pronounced as yahweh), allohem and by many other names.

    And I will share show corruption started. Those like me who have read the full text of prophet mohammed last sermon will understand prophet Mohammed asked his followers to follow Ahl Bayt, his family members, he asked you to give the same respect you gave to him to Imam Ali his son-in-law. Infact many of you know nowhere islamic hadith or quran can be found that prophet Mohammed nominated the Abu Bakr as the 1st caliph of Islam, so when Abu Bakr forced himself as the 1st caliph with the help of second caliph Omar, they betrayed the wishes of prophet Mohammed. Infact it is also covered in both Sunni and Shia Hadith catagorically Abu Bakr sent sent Umar to Fatima and Ali to ensure they support him as 1st caliph, but Fatima was so angry that she refused to see Abu Bakr face till death and she asked Ali not to even invite Abu Bakr to her funeral. Caliph Umar who had supported Abu Bakr even burned Fatima house and cause miscarriage of Fatima. Everyone knows Ahl Bayt was persecuted in Arabia and had to flee in desperation, without going to much details I want to say even much of what muslims are being told is corruption of the caliphate. Prophet mohammed clearly said not to collect taxes, where as Caliphate Uthman was killed by the Muslims of Alexandria killed him because he placed a non-muslim Ummayad cousins to collect taxes from them. One of the non-muslim Ummayyad cousin – Muawiyah b. Abu Sufyan. Let us not forget Caliph Uthman was also himself a convert muslim from a very rich Ummayyad and rich background. This is the same man caliph Uthman himself said that all the people who knew Quran by heart have died in wars so 110-130 years after prophet Mohammed death asked the Quran to be rewritten. He called upon people to provide their memories of prophet mohammed which were collected in scribes, but these original scribes burned later. We all know prophets family family faced persecution and Imam Ali was killed and then Imam Hussain was forced to secretly send his family and companions to Hindustan, but when he himself was on the way to hindustan he was killed on the way in Karbala. Hussaini Brahmins still exist and they are found leading Muharram for centuries proves connection between Hindus and Imam Hussain.

    Today I will share few fact which will highlight how foreign vested powers with the help of our so called leaders, cheated both the People of Pakistan and Indian during Partition. Hatred was harnessed as a tool to acheive the desired outcome. But before I come to that I have a lot of things to share with you.

    During the 1946 Provincial Elections held in India under the British. Muslim League under Jinnah only got about 27% of Muslim Votes. That is right. Yet if you look at the 1937 elections Jinnah could not even win 1 seat, only this time they created reserved provinces where hindus could not vote in reserved muslims provinces hence gauranteeing victory to them. Thanks to British modified election rules, AIML finally managed to augment itself as India’s largest Muslim party.
    It also did well in two other Muslim majority provinces. It won 113 (out of 230) seats in the Bengal and 27 (out of 60) in Sindh.
    So, ML could not form a govt in NWFP, and Balochistan was never a province but was annexed by Jinnah from Nawab of Kalat after independence. The only place it had a decisive majority was Bengal which has now seceded as Bangladesh. Except for Punjab which was in favor of creation Pakistan no other state voted for AIML hence this is why major parts of Punjab and Bengal went to Pakistan. Or let us put it this way that British had achieved what they had planned out of the 1947 provisional elections by using the muslim votes in provinces reserved for muslims. Muslim League managed to win all the 30 seats reserved for the Muslims that means Islamist parties got no votes how is this possible unless it was rigged by british. The results of the provincial election held in early 1946 were not different. Congress won most of the non-Muslim seats while Muslim League captured approximately 95 percent of the Muslim seats. Another important point to note 95% muslims voted to create pakistan. If that was the case then why did they stay back in India then after 1947 if they voted their choice. If they stayed back India then why did Nehru make a secular constitution when it was already clear from before the partition was to divide hindustan based on religion, ie Pakistan for Muslims and India for Hindus. What was the pupose of this excercise. In my view nothing more then British design to stop communist Russian advances to connect with India so they created a buffer state which can be managed by British and Americans in the form of Pakistan.

    Jinnah took money from British after which he changed his strategy to create separate Pakistan. How Jinnah self proclaimed himself as governor general without any electoral process due to faithfulness to British he was obliged. Not only people of Pakistan but also people of India were cheated there many conspiracies, including conspiracy of Nehru. Uneducated masses of Hindustan where ignorant till today they dont know any facts they only believe what they were made to believe. People of both countries have not been told that British created two dominion states which is not same as two independent countries. It is well known fact the congress committee had elected Sardar Patel as the PM of India, yet Gandhi owing to the preasure from British asked Sardar Patel to step down from PM candidature and he oblidged Gandhi giving way to Nehru. In the end Pakistan got a ex-Hindu, pork eating, alcohol drinking Jinnah as governor General and India got a ex-muslim, Beef eater as PM of India both agents of the British, followed British Interest.

  31. NWFP (pathan muslims) were always pro-India and not pro-Pakistan hence Abdul Ghaffar Khan was jailed soon after 1947 pakistan formation. If the Khudai Khidmatgars (Red shirts of NWFP) would not have boycotted voting Pakistan would have perhaps never been formed. But the provisional elections were manuputed by British anyway not sure if that would have made any difference as the creation of Pakistan was already destined and decided soon after 1857 revolt where hindus and muslims united to fight against the British, surprisingly the Sikh did not participate in the 1857 revolt led by Bahadur Shah Zafar even as many Hindu leaders like Rani Laxmi Bai joined the that revolt.

    Infact Jinnah came back to India in 1904 and in 1906 British created the Muslim league with its charter being to serve the British crown. In 1920 Jinnah resigned from the Congress and in 1925 Jinnah became the only Indian to be offered Knighthood from the British Empire, which he tactfully declined. Other famous personalities who refused honour include Winston Churchill. Winston was no longer PM at the time of Partition but his contributions to Partition of India are kept in the secret Brtish archives, only recently some of it has been released from British Archives that Winston Churchil and Jinnah secretly wrote letters to each other not directly but on each others secretary address and discussed partition matters of India, Pakistan. Winston Churchil made no secrets about hating Indian and hindus. Churchill was a staunch imperialist who never wanted India to be independent. But the preasure from British Media was too much even for him to handle so he had to engage secretly to design the Partition and dominion state of India/ Pakistan.

    Winston Churchil had expressed his disgust at 'a half naked fakir parleying with the British' when Mahatma Gandhi attended the Round Table Conference. Again, as the British PM, he refused to talk about granting India independence, saying he had not 'become His Majesty's first minister to preside over the liquidation of the British empire'. So, his other qualities apart, Churchill was no friend of India and it is natural for Indians to have no love for him. During the devastating Bengal famine, it was the abominable Churchill who refused to divert food grain produced by Indians to save starving Indians. By 1943 hordes of starving people were flooding into Calcutta, most dying on the streets. Subhas Chandra Bose, who was then fighting on the side of the Axis forces, offered to send rice from Myanmar, but the British censors did not even allow his offer to be reported in public media. Churchill was totally remorseless in diverting food to the British troops and Greek civilians. To him, “the starvation of anyhow underfed Bengalis (was) less serious than sturdy Greeks” When asked to release food stocks for India, Churchill responded with a telegram asking why Gandhi hadn’t died yet. Churchill’s hostility toward Indians has long been documented. At a War Cabinet meeting, he blamed the Indians themselves for the famine, saying they “breed like rabbits”. His attitude toward Indians may be summed up in his words : “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion.” On another occasion, he insisted they were “the beastliest people in the world next to the Germans”.

    “Churchill’s attitude toward India was quite extreme, and he hated Indians, mainly because he knew India couldn’t be held for very long.” “Churchill regarded wheat as too precious a food to expend on non-whites, let alone on recalcitrant subjects who were demanding independence from the British Empire. He preferred to stockpile the grain to feed Europeans after the war was over.”
    The nauseating racism of this man is fully evident in this disgusting statement that he made before the Peel's Commission –
    I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.
    All in all, Churchill was far more damaging to India and to Indians than Hitler ever could be. Hitler's effect on India was the death of the Indian soldiers who fought for the British. Churchill's effect on India was the painful death of many civilians and the holocaust of partition that followed the shameful and uncoordinated flight of the Brits which could have been averted had Churchill seen the writing on the wall and negotiated for a logical withdrawal of the British well in advance. But what may come as a surprise is that Churchill was a strong admirer of Islam and the culture of the Orient — such was his regard for the Muslim faith that relatives feared he might convert.

    The revelation comes with the discovery of a letter to Churchill from his future sister-in-law, Lady Gwendoline Bertie, written in August 1907, in which she she pleads: “Please don’t become converted to Islam;

    Meanwhile British was busy flighting the world war 2 between 1939 to 1945, and had weakened as a result. While the congress refused to send Indian soilders, Jinnah agreed to send muslims to fight for the British in world war 2.

    Meanwhile Did you know that the coolies in railway stations of India got the red uniform in respect for the Khudai Khidmatgars (Red shirts of NWFP) as Indians during 1947 felt those who help everyone and are capable of taking the load of the world are the red shirts of NWFP. Then Pakistan army distorted history books to teach children a pro-Pakistan and anti India story to pashto children via corrupted school textbook brainwashing. Islamist also did not want to create Pakistan, but the rich muslims zamindars wanted to be in power and rule over poor so they wanted to create Pakistan. Infact Jinnah only cheated the poor muslims to get their votes and hence he spread the word that we will create a Islamic state but that was never his intention to create a Islamic state. The objective of Jinnah was purely to get power only. Balochistan was a separate country for 100's of years but 2 years after creation of Pakistan Jinnah ordered to invade independent of Balochistan. But Americans and British kept quite to genocide of Baloochi people as Pakistani army served the purposes of Americans/British. Infact islamist pre partition had already warned that greater India's muslims should not follow arabi version of Islam. But now we see more than more muslims are following Wahabi, salafi, deobandi Islam. This is nothing but by design of American CIA who works actively with Saudi.

    To this day Pakistan army have killed millions of Balochi people. Pakistan army and ISI just continued to brainwash and cheat the poor people of Pakistan and continued the anti India way to remain in power as this allows the army generals to earn millions. Pakistani army uses its radical arm jamaat e islami to suppress other muslims. jamaat e islami got share of money and power from the Pakistan army in return. example they used these very radicals to kill millions of bangladeshi muslims. Radicals islamists of jamaat e islami like Pracha distort facts and how they try to show others history using his lens of hatred. Infact Pakistan army took money from Americans to hang PM Bhutto have become paid mercenaries of the Americans. From 1970 Pakistani army took petro dollar money to talibanize its people which created 12-15 year old children as human bombs used by Pakistani army to further their personal interest. Pakistan army and ISI hands are soaked in blood of innocent muslims and non muslims. Saudization of Islam is deliberately introduced in Pakistan which has forced people to become anti american or anti non-muslims. But in reality this is done with full backing and support of USA. The videos also show how the word Jihad was manipulated to create terrorism from 1950-60 thus distorting the Islam as a religion. This is why Pakistan forced urdu language was forced on people of Pakistan so they forget own identity and provide loyalty to the Pakistan army and ISI. Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad before independence in 1946 had predicted all this will be happening if Pakistan will be created that is why he never step foot in Pakistan till he lived, he had also said how foreign powers will control pakistan and how poor people will be misused for power by pakistan army and rich muslim zamindars. Jinnah who was bribed by British ignored what Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad. A book written by British author says Mount batten also said money was given to Jinnah to serve British interests to separate greater India into multiple parts. If Paksitan would have not spend on Paksitan army/ISI they would have had more noble prize winners like Abdul Salam and hence people of Paksitan would have been more progressive.

    What a shame Jinnah misguided Pakistanis and took them away from true message of god. proof of that is your father of nation Jinnah ate pork and drank alcohol never went for haj, created pakistan out for his own ambitions of power hunger and not for love for Islam. If he would have really loved Allah he would have known true message of Allah is love for all humanity. The idea of Pakistan was Jinnah's greed for power and British agreed because it suited their long term interests infact they gave Jinnah 7 lakh rupees to encourage support for partition. Jinnah created a country which has killed 50 million muslims since partition due to this hunger. If he followed Quran he would not have separated Hindustan, we would have stayed in Unity with the Uma of Allah…all Indians hindus, muslims, christians, buddhist.

  32. Meanwhile Did you know that the coolies in railway stations of India got the red uniform in respect for the Khudai Khidmatgars (Red shirts of NWFP) as Indians during 1947 felt those who help everyone and are capable of taking the load of the world are the red shirts of NWFP. Then Pakistan army distorted history books to teach children a pro-Pakistan and anti India story to pashto children via corrupted school textbook brainwashing. Islamist also did not want to create Pakistan, but the rich muslims zamindars wanted to be in power and rule over poor so they wanted to create Pakistan. Infact Jinnah only cheated the poor muslims to get their votes and hence he spread the word that we will create a Islamic state but that was never his intention to create a Islamic state. The objective of Jinnah was purely to get power only. Balochistan was a separate country for 100's of years but 2 years after creation of Pakistan Jinnah ordered to invade independent of Balochistan. But Americans and British kept quite to genocide of Baloochi people as Pakistani army served the purposes of Americans/British. Infact islamist pre partition had already warned that greater India's muslims should not follow arabi version of Islam. But now we see more than more muslims are following Wahabi, salafi, deobandi Islam. This is nothing but by design of American CIA who works actively with Saudi.

  33. Nehru family meanwhile cosy up with Russia, Lal Bahdur Shastri and Subash Chandra Bose both competitors of Nehru family killed in Russia and from then onwards all defence orders of India went to Russia. Congress party then used the same divide and rule card by scaring the muslims against the RSS and Hindu party BJP thus keeping alive the strategy of British to rule India. They even use the India media to keep this narative of hindu muslim hatred post partition enough to use the muslim vote bank and appease them against the majority Hindu, similar to how British had been doing all along.

    It would be stupid to think that by killing few kashmiris or Arundhatti Roy, Saghrika Ghosh, Barkha dutt the propagda war will be finished, no it will not new players will come from the public and replace old stooges.

    Inorder to understand the hindu muslim issue, we need to diagnose the problem the extent of disease spread and then treat it. So taccording to me the main issue is Rich vs Poor and Rich Nations vs Poor Nations. Let me explain how.

    Propaganda war is not new it has been there for centuries. What we need to understand is some people who know the nature of muslims have understood their psyche. They are playing the tune like pied piper and muslims are following them like rats followed pied pied piper. This way they create a hate hysteria in the country, divide the people and create instability in the country.

    Since time internity rich people wanted to control the poor people and countries like Britain and America wanted to keep the poor nations poor. The partition of India was also created with this design. The british created fake partitions, keeping 30% seat reservation for muslims, bribed a pork eating, alchol drinking Jinnah and beef eating Nehru to partition India, using the psyche of muslims when 90% Indian muslims voted to create Pakistan. The British had already planned partition of India soon after 1857, created muslim league themselves in 1906, with agenda to be loyal to the British crown. Pakistan was created british using fake elections, even the hard core muslim mullahs did not want separate pakistan, it was only the zamindars, but british played a cleaver card via jinnah to create it into land for islam as until that point there was no country made for a religion only 2 countries israel and pakistan have that distinction.

    It is the British who created Saudi Arabia and gave the idea to Abdul Wahab to create a cult called Wahabism. They used wahabhi salafi hatred to further exploit the very emotional muslims.

    Now they have gone a step forward they use celebretes in each country to speak in favor of muslims, we seen this in America, we see this in India by brimbing them Arundhatti, Saghrika Gosh, Barkha dutt etc. They use media channels in each country to create a hysteria of religious and communal hate. I ask you where was this hate before Amir Khan spoke about intolerance in India, why Amir Khan was trying to get signatures of people to ban the democratically elected PM of India from getting visa of USA.

    They bribe politicians we seen how even Presidential candidates of USA, hillary clinton were getting financial funding from Saudi and wahabhi sources. We see how Mamta Banerjee is stopping Durga Aarti against Muharam. so this is a propaganda war. And the objective of this is to divide Indians, it does not matter they divide muslims and hindus or they divide us based on language, they will use very possible way to divide us.

    Now you let us in the sources. Saudi is using zaqat money to mobalize hate propaganda, love jihad and many many other sub sub organizations self funded and runing like institutions supported with money and resources. USA is providing weapons and aid. Till date the highest recepients of USA aid have been Pakistan, Turkey and Saudi. Saudi provides wahabhi ideology and money, USA provides weapons and unlimited supply of dollars. Now who are controlling governments in USA who is controlling the fed reserve, it is the richest people of the world. So the rich people of the world are using us like rate, keeping us scared of each other so we can continue to be thier slaves for them and their future generations.

    These people not only use media, celebrites, they also use student, look in egypt, lybia, moroco, syria they used students to change govt leaderships that they did not like. In india they use JNU to spread hatred. So they will use anyone with money.

    They will use Rohingya as a tool of propaganda to send them in India, Thailand to achieve instability and hate war games. They use Facebook, Quora also to created biased approach. They will use BBC, CNN to create fake recorded programs to project that muslims are good/bad or whatever. This is a propaganda, everything you see is a virtual reality created by media propganda. You are real but everything around you is not real.

    Enlighten muslims to stop hate, enlighten hindus to guide our muslims brothers. Stop using religion for purposes of hate, if you see such celebrete propaganda guide muslims not to get emotions, explain to them with kindness. Because the real goal of our enemies is to make us hate each other, they win as long we hate one another.

    In the case of Kashmir propaganda is fully supported by USA, Saudi…all funding to Pakistan comes from our enemies and the people inside kashmir who are gready they take money to follow USA and Saudi orders wnhich come via pakistan.

    To the Khalistanis, I like to say we are sorry for congress party and Indira Gandhi attrocities of the Sikhs, but for a minute try to think about this can a movement like Khalistan be even possible unless it was supported by the CIA and USA, this is why Khalistanis were brought to Canada and USA. Allowed to freely practice hatred against India from foriegn lands.

    Dear Indus Wasiyo, we have been pawns at the hand of powerful people, they use hatred as a catalist like petrol to divide us and make us weaker by fighting against one another in the name of religion, caste, creed, colour, language. Dont allow other people to use you. Stop fighting, hindus and Muslims, stop fighting Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. I must tell you the rich have always hijacked the message of God from the begining of time, we are one, we were one, always were one people, dont let people tell you we are different cause we are not. No god had distinguished between us, the paid propganda has just become the better of us. There was no hatred in 1947, there will be no hatred if you dont allow forign powers with vested interests to interfere in our internal affair. Let the people to people contact decide the truth. I can assure you both communities are scared from inside and people do funny things when they are afraid. Let fear disappear let trust and faith be nurtured between us.

  34. Did they actually cut out and edit the part where she was talking about Mandela and Ghandi?!?!?

  35. This woman, arundhati roy, is really loved by the african countries because SHE MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD by telling them that they are BETTER THAN INDIA… OH… The extent of sycophancy… kissing butts to get accolades.

  36. A writer almost always have to be anti capitalist. The majority of her income come from sheer number of people.
    Same with anyone selling to the masses. You dont have to be right , you just have to appeal to the largest block of the population.
