sandeep is like my brother but im high and my guru a month the whole to him that the come before i met him. i did not know the meaning of hindus fur balls sided the meaning of being a hindu except that a ha, i had muslim friends, but then i saw things clearly debbie menace cheeseburger had lot. any. one journalist who has observed the scene for years says it's boiling over the engine is in the environment, it has reached it, leave it, it is manifested in schools, universities, in campuses, among you, verse park is that the government is ignoring it. and kinda adobe, the last 2 preventive bill laws to check it. but a, if you leave it, then tomorrow we are sitting on a, you know, kind of, it is like a tinderbox. even if the authorities do cracked down on him to heat music, it may not be enough to comfort of entries. minority muslim population increasingly
under threat from he knew nationalism. and that was a small part of a documentary that you can watch on the dw documentary channel on the youtube, my colleague, a conscious accent. i was behind the documentary and she joins me now. for more account. you're a very compelling report there from you. can you tell us a bit about who these singers are and where they come from? i thank you for having me the dish. these singers come from what can be called the hinterlands of india. um, you know, small villages are small towns and i went to meet some of these people are in the state are called with the for the ish, which is the most popular state in india. and it is also very crucial for me to political parties because it sends the largest number of lawmakers to the parliament. now, the singers are usually popular because they will have stuck big by tapping into
the right wing in the wide your la g. r, which has become immensely popular and hordes political capital, so united speak to the ones in northern india. but this phenomenon i also think, is not limited to only one region or one state. hindered up off is also getting popular in the villages and or in small towns of other states like a sam or not to gain different languages as well. ah, so these songs are shared on whatsapp are they're played at political rallies and you know, they're treated or these people are treated as bob stars in these bar up arts because they real a lot of power and they're very popular. but other members of political parties as well well, some of them are in, some of them are not, but the ones that i featured in this documentary are members off of id, yolande group, which is, um, you know, basically was founded by you gather tonight, who's a chief minister of what the british are, they are pictures of these thing has with a, you know,
these ad government functions at political rallies and also the chief minister. so you know, single like them have direct or indicted affiliation to political parties or even larger groups like the artist says, aud vh b. and so there are connections. there are political patronage are there. some of these singers enjoy sort in awareness or in reverse. runing boudreau is in a sense fermenting this kind of music. well, i mean, if the thing goes are singing during election campaigning, and it's normalizing, hate and division in the society which is useful political gains. i'm not saying it, but this is, this is, this is a reality off of this ecosystem. this are as a means to reach to the massive, you know, so the political parties use them. the not, you know, maybe reaching out to people who read election manifesto is, but they're reaching out to you know, who was helping build, you know,
public opinion. so i just think that apart from hate songs, they're also thinking, you know, on other issues which are, you know, important to in, in defining policies of the, of the b, g, p or, and, you know, some of these are implemented by them like the c and r c, the uniform civil course, they're singing on all these things as well. let's talk about this in the business because you're also spoke to a b, g, b spokesperson. i'd like to play that sound bite right now. but if you didn't, that body doesn't have any space for any sort of hate. and we do not increase it. so if for said songs has been sung, why sudden sing goes and some people think that they are already dead. ok, 3. and they are very home for low for the fees, and how many of this is, why do they should go ahead and they should do file. why are these, those signals that are 1st or 1st information report, essentially
a police complained, but a contract in these politically charged times. how safe is it to file a hate speech complaint? it is not ready safe and not many people actually come out and report on these instances because they're all so very scared they pink that they are. they could be an appraisal against them on one pretext or the other. you know, they might not be directly linked to, you know, because, you know, often action against them because of the complaint it could be on, on something like, you know, get sending a bulldozer to their home. oh and calling the the home has a, you know, illegal construction are, but one thing i just want to point point out here that it's not only the complaints made by individuals, organizations that are important, the police, the authorities can actually take our school more dog organisms which is basically, ah, that be,
are not required of people are not quite in person to make official complaint. ah, police can take active organisms. ah, you know, and dick and report and charge people. but this doesn't really happen because a, you know, you sign the document, you also need the police and authorities were like a mule then, and we're not really, you know, a did were here the heat, the songs but nothing was like really are taking place are. so there is some level of a, it seems like institutional acceptance to this phenomenon or what, when this atmosphere of hate and institutional backing due to the world's largest democracy. i mean, it's a, it's a difficult question. there is a lot of division. there is a lot of polarization right now in the country and it is solving a lot of political again, i just feel that you know, the tailored where when i grew up, oh, you know where in the schools we had songs about secularism. some of these songs
and these, these, these words like you know, sec secularism, which is enshrined in the constitution of india. have now become words that are very loosely used to define leg the liberal left are and, and are, you know, are there, there is a constant attack on, on, you know, when, when reports like these come out. obviously that happened uh with me as well on, on the twitter space. ah, but i just feel that our in, in this context of a, the division is going to empower us, you know, the elected and the, this is, this is the electorate that goes to vote. and the, and the right wing ideology is here to stay are conscious on santa thanks so much for bringing us that her report on thank you so much for that context. thanks so much. thank you. and you can head over to our website, d, deborah dot com, forward slash asia, where there's other stories from india on the rise of knowledge tend to pop pop,
but in the politics as well. remember, as ever you can always follow us on facebook and twitter that doesn't fit today. we're back tomorrow at the same time. so you then goodbye. that he was today with love on banning thing that way. but i'm not gonna have to watch my own car and everyone with later holes and everything. just getting, are you ready to meet the gentleman can join me, right? just do it on d. w. and we're interested in the global economy. our portfolio d w business. beyond here, the closer look at the project,
