On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah, we talk to Eviane Leidig about Hindutva, India and the far-right. Evian is an Affiliate at the Center for Research on Extremism in Oslo, and her ‘doctoral dissertation traced transnational connections of the far right between India and the West, particularly through Indian diaspora supporters of Brexit and Trump in the UK and US’. Some of her recent writings include #CoronaJihad”: How the Far-Right in India is Responding to the Pandemic, Global Network on Extremism & Technology, April 15, 2020 and The Far-Right is Going Global, Foreign Policy, January 21, 2020.
