India: An Age of Intolerance and Rising Nationalism

Threats to Journalists in India

In his research paper, Threats to Journalists in India: Journalism in the Age of Intolerance and Rising Nationalism, Furquan Siddiqui takes a close look at the dangers facing India's journalists. 

He asks how does the current political climate in the country impact safety of journalists? Are journalists or media houses in India targeted more today than ever before? Has it become easier to target or malign journalists critical of the establishment at a time when trust in media dwindles across the globe and social media trolling is at its peak?

In his conclusion Siddiqui writes 'Polarisation seems to have seeped in so deep that it makes people only trust the medium that voices their thoughts and ideology.'.
