India: Muslims and the Media

Categories: South Asia, India, Media & Journalism, Religion, War & Conflict

After an attack on a mosque in Hyderabad, is the media missing the bigger picture? iFaqeer [1] comments “Of course, he is taking it from the perspective of a “Security” hawk within the Indian establishment and not looking, as I am trying to do, beyond the tension between Muslims and other communities and on to intra-Muslim tensions, as in Karachi. The issue really is one of fanaticism being left on the table as the only option for a lot of young, educated folks (and yes, it is the educated ones I am particularly concerned about)–Muslim or not. South Africa, where Mandel himself has never said that their resort to violence was wrong, Ireland and Sri Lanka come to mind.”
