    That's no escuse though. A Kapil Sibal or a Sashi Tharoor can explain away anything. They look nice, talk smoothly, Sashi Tharoor would have flirted with big- nose Nitisha. Ram Mahadev with his mockable accent and simple looks was not the man for this job.

    It was proven within minutes the program started the data and even the quotes presented in the program were wrong... Ram Madhav had to correct it on more than two occasions to which Mehdi had to apologise right there. I think Arun jaitley would have been a better candidate for this interview.. or may be even Mr. Swamy :D


    I request you to do the same...please watch it again :)

    yes majority were British and no there were not a few muslims, it was filled with Muslims and Indians equally... the guy whom you claim to have owned him was not even answered (i hope you noticed that as well), and simply ignored b saying he was entitled to his position but for him, the area was Pak Occupied Kashmir.

    Did you watch the program with Hina rabanni khar? Surprisingly , this guy hasan who is a Shia muslim himself was less worried by the killings of thousands of Shias in Pak than he was by "rising intolerance " in India. Sometimes I think what really bothers these people are not killings themselves but who is doing the killings.

    yes I saw that. In fact the reason why I keep on saying Ram Madhav did a fair job is when I compare that interview of Hina Rabbani Khar where she kept on raising hands and accepting mistakes, this guy atleast had his answrs ready. But you are right, Mehdi seemed more worried about Akhand Bharat concept than Shia killing... lol

    LOL Ram Madhav the same nut job believing Pakistan and India will become one once again. There is no shortage of nut jobs these days.

    No doubt that India has become a hub of intolerance where people from different faiths are rounded up and massacred for consuming beef. No doubt that sexual violence against women in India has become rampant under the watch of Modi. Can't deny these facts.

    You know something is terribly wrong when an Indian lover like Salman Rushdie has to stand up and criticize Indian intolerance. That takes some doing.

    Because Mehdi is Indian-origin.
    You Indians whine about this "Ummah mentality" among Muslims but are at the same time complaining that Mehdi is more concerned about India (his home country) than Pakistani Muslims? You've spent too much time in the designated shitting streets, my friend. Get some fresh air inside your head so you can begin thinking straight.

    Exactly and that prof Gautam Sen was doing some great trolling of Nitasha Kaul.

    yeah Ram Madhav's english was poor and his weakness,he spoke like old indian people do,using your and mehdi tried to milk the moment like a rabid schoolboy,if he does it in a normal mehfil,he will be slapped into good behaviour.

    India origin Muslim of pre 1947?

    Then he is a 50-50,we dont if his family would have migrated to Pak or not?

    when you as an anchor show biasness and focus more on a dead concept on paper than actual killing of human being then it doesnt matter whether you are from India or Pakistan or a Hindu or a Muslim, you are simply wrong. your job is to work as an advocate of the audience not bring your personal emotions into the interview. Please get out of the shit hole that live in to have such a mentality that an anchor should be concerned only about the matter relating to his country of origin and not to other issue like Shia killings. Please get that shitload out from your half working brain and then come and talk to me. Dont use profanity against me next time you quote me or else expect reply in the same lines.

    True, shashi tharoor would have owned mehdi hasan big time, if he was at it.

    Bjp needs to rope in someone like tharoor in the party.

    I think mehdi hasan purposefully called ram madhav, although there were more eligible speakers from bjp, thinking that ram would be a soft target.
    But he was in for a good surprise.

    And tell me, why would he discuss Shia killings in Pakistan with an Indian party leader? Why is it that whenever an Indian is confronted with a bitter pill of truth, instead of swallowing it down, they insist on vomiting it out while screaming whataboutisms? :disagree: :lol:

    He's stated that he is an Indian.

    you hit the nail on the head. People mistake Madhav's hindi-colloqial English as politically incorrect statements. He was well informed and unfazed. The interviewer and much of the audience, used to sugar coated fluff for answers, did not know how to deal with this guy. I actually came out thinking he had truth on his side
