Gujarat Elections: Subversion of Democracy

in conversation with Shabnam Hashmi
______________________

February 28 - March 2, 2002, witnessed the murder of about 2,000 Muslims by militant Hindus in Gujarat, India. Women and children
were victims of sexualized violence. Between 150,000-200,000 were internally displaced. Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and
his government, in command over the law enforcement machinery, were responsible for providing leadership and material support in
the politically motivated and planned attacks.

Shabnam Hashmi will speak to cultural resistance by grassroots groups working for justice in Gujarat, and to the dynamics of
electoral politics culminating in December 2007 with the reelection of Narendra Modi as chief minister.

SHABNAM HASHMI is a leading voice in the struggle for secular democracy in India, and a founding member of ANHAD: Act Now for
Harmony and Democracy.

Introduced by Angana Chatterji for
The Social and Cultural Anthropology Program, California Institute of Integral Studies
