Description

The biggest election in human history. The most popular political leader in the world. The stakes couldn’t be higher. 


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approval ratings in high-seventies, and he’s widely expected to win his third term. But in India and beyond, many fear what his reelection will bring. Accusations of complicity in religious violence have dogged Modi. More recently, his government has been tied to alleged assassination plots in Canada and the US. 


In the latest season of Understood, Mumbai-based journalist Salimah Shivji examines how Modi went from being barred from the US, to becoming one of the most powerful men in the world. And asks the pressing question: what’s at stake if he wins again?
