Sri Lanka’s ongoing political deadlock and recent anti-blasphemy protests in Pakistan underscore the willingness of powerful groups and individuals to exploit religious fault lines in order to further a political agenda. In this podcast we examine the recent evolution of this trend in South Asia and explore the affiliated security risks.
Key points include:
- The presence of more hard-line religious sentiment in Pakistan
- The resurgence of ethno-religious tensions in Sri Lanka
- The likelihood of Hindu Nationalism increasing ahead of India’s 2019 elections
