The Incarcerations: BK-16 and the Search for Democracy in India


As India’s general election results reverberate around the world, The Incarcerations offers a sweeping, searing investigation into the rise of Indian fascism, cyber warfare and tech surveillance versus minority activism and resistance. Alpa Shah exposes the personal stories and shocking truth behind the arrests of the Bhima Koregaon 16 – professors, lawyers, journalists, poets fighting for the rights of India’s three main minorities – Adivasi, Dalits and Muslims – who have been imprisoned, without credible evidence and without trial. The case challenges India’s freedom of speech, of movement; the right to land, religion, language, and culture. Essential and urgent, The Incarcerations reveals how this case is a bellwether for the collapse of democracy in India and discusses its ramifications for the future of human rights around the world.
