    Savarkar And India

    In the past few weeks Delhi has become the latest place in India convulsed with religious violence as Hindu mobs burned Muslim neighborhoods, mosques and killed over 40 people.

Good stuff

I really like the show. Even though I am a bit disappointed about the one about Chavez and Venezuela. With no word the US involvement in the coup and the very strict and heavy US led embargo against Venezuela is mentioned. I know it’s impossible to include everything. But this is too much of a factor to completely ignore it.

Love the episodes about Israel and North Korea

depth and background

Thank you for the episode. It changed my view on the current situation, as I did not know the history. Very obviously 1953 change more than 1979.
