The World's Largest Democracy:
The Kashmir Issue
w/ News Analysis
A recent article in the Guardian (10/2/11) written by Arundhati Roy features Armenian-American writer and Founder of Alternative Radio, David Barsamian on his prohibition from entering into the borders of India, the world’s largest democracy. As a writer, Barsamian has made countless trips to India to write on just about every type of people’s unrest happening, from the Narmada Dam situation, to farmer suicides, to the massacres of thousands of Muslims in the state of Gujarat in 2002. We welcome David Barsamian to take a close look as to why he was deported this time around. Why now? Why Kashmir?
Guests:David Barsamian is an Armenian-American radio broadcaster, writer, and the founder and director of Alternative Radio, the Boulder, Colorado-based syndicated weekly talk program that is also heard here on KPFK. His interviews and articles also appear regularly in The Progressive, The Nation, and Z Magazine. Barsamian is best known for his series of interviews with Noam Chomsky, which have been published in book form and translated into many languages, selling hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide.
