“…the impact of this decision by Modi’s government is more likely to come not as a sudden blast of radiation, but a slow transmogrification of democracy–in India, in South Asia, & quite possibly much farther.”

This is a very Armageddon kind of article. It approaches the issue from a ‘geopolitical’, state power point of view which underestimates the popular Kashmiri struggle for self-determination & the impact of the emerging solidarity forces around the world, in particular that expressed by Palestinians, Rohingya, Syrians. But it does quite clearly elaborate what the Modi regime has put at stake for democracy in India & South Asia.
