Active Minds presents India in Crisis  

The COVID crisis began setting tragic mortality records in India this past spring and the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better. Join Active Minds as we explore the current crisis in India as well as the political and historical backdrop against which it is set. The country has been led since 2014 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a controversial but widely popular leader from the BJP, a Hindu Nationalist party. His policies have alienated the Muslim minority within India, particularly in the disputed Muslim-majority region of Jammu and Kashmir. Additionally tensions with China have sparked border skirmishes that reflect a challenging regional dynamic between the two largest countries in the world.
