to do with into being and the secular and muslim they are watered they fear that they will be swamped by egos of foreigners by outside does their fear that these people who shouldn't be in india even on a sam will suddenly get a legal pathway to becoming citizens of india and hence be able to live in assam but if you ask people in other parts of india as we saw in that report over there the fear is that this is an attack on the secular character of the indian constitution which. in a country which does not have a state religion in which all religions are equal it is an attack on that and they view it as and the muslim and exclusionist rights as they are obviously not a lot of criticism about this bill being anti muslim and being kind of undermining india secular traditions and why did the indian government decide to leave muslims from this act well the official version that came from the home minister as it was as your table the bill in parliament when it was being discussed was that. we are
1:06 pm
providing protection to religious minorities and the countries in question but just on bangladesh of honest on majority muslim nations therefore muslims don't require protection from persecution because muslims can be persecuted in these countries because they're majority muslim fact was the argument that the government put forth in parliament critics and that's really not buying it critics are saying this is a clear enough version of the hindu nationalist agenda of the ruling b.g.p. party a number that is something that we've seen over the past many years from the 1st 2014000000 or more they came to power there has been a number of attacks intimidation that the muslim community in india has been facing just for the benefit of our viewers a community that number's roughly 200000000 so it's not a small number so this act that has now become law for many critics is a veritable illustration of the priorities of this government which is to serve the hindu vote by and that of course also this you muslim countries which the indian
1:07 pm
government has listed as have been disallowed have persecuted muslim minorities yet does not as in afghanistan you have him in the end pakistani army rangers and bang that they say so but now that this is something that taking this. to the act into court now and saying it's discriminatory. how divisive is this issue in india it is very divisive of the moment and the way things are going on today it looks to become even more divisive because remember these protests have been spreading it was a sound that was at the forefront of protests to last week and then it sort of spread to other countries if you just saw in the into other states as you saw in that report so it is extremely divisive many people of viewing it as a battle for the soul of india and the soul of the constitution is india a secular nation or will india pick and choose whom it wants to provide protection to on the basis of the religion that is the essential question there is a special thank you very much. let me now bring up to some other stories making

voices the chinese government is trying to silence this man who calls himself midway dude is trying to make them heard he was born on the mainland as well. i know that there are people in china who love democracy who love freedom and who support hong kong. but with the current situation they cannot speak out. because he's afraid of retribution and has relatives on the mainland midway dude cannot reveal his identity he grew up on the mainland and moved to hong kong at a young age it was here he started questioning that nationalism he was raised with little by little he grew to support democracy movement. when you've gotten to know freedom it's very hard to go back to a situation where you don't have any freedom at all. mainlanders who
1:11 pm
support hong kong's protests might be a minority but midway do things they should be heard they can submit their story to him via an anonymous form then he posts them on twitter and is even he himself does not know their identity because this project tree holds in chinese legend the place people with their secrets and. there's a trend in china in recent years that your colleagues your friends even your family members all students will report you to the old florida keys. they think you're not nationalistic enough they think you're betraying your country. these past 10 years i've seen with my eyes wide open how my favorite comics t.v. shows and books were banned and have disappeared from the shelves in mainland china i saw how the best opinion leaders were arrested or silenced. i said nothing and i did nothing now i regret that i deeply regret that. that's why i cannot bear to see

representatives exhausted with little progress made on how to limit global warming to under 2 degrees but there was agreement on one issue regretfully after all the hard work that. we couldn't get our to an agreement it is my sincere regret that we were not able to reach an agreement we invested a lot of energy and find a very fresh. that. at the end of the day we were not able to arrive at a final agreement observers had hoped that cop $25.00 would end with a framework for a carbon certificate scheme imposing a tax on each tonne of greenhouse gas produced a condiments and environmental activists alike say it's a critical step if the world hopes to minimize the impending climate catastrophe but a deal couldn't be reached in part due to resistance from some of the world's worst polluters like the usa china india and australia. forcing delegates to only
1:14 pm
pledge to do more to uphold the paris climate agreement. with leadership in short supply in madrid environmental activists say it's time for the european union to step up i mean this conference in madrid is really a good point for the entire much of there to listen on on climate change and it's now up to the european union with the green deal to go ahead with a clear vision of carbon free neutral economy all eyes are now on next year's meeting in glasgow but while the world continues to drag its feet the worst predictions of climate scientists have already started to become a reality. joining me now is jennifer morgan she's the executive director of greenpeace international. and the climate talks in madrid ended with a years of blame game and accusations of xenophobe what is your assessment of what
1:15 pm
was achieved at this. well the summit itself was indeed the outcome was unacceptable but i think that the finger pointing should be going at the corporate interests and the carbon pollution interests that are behind the fact that governments were not ready to come in with much deeper cuts and and actions to actually address the climate of urgency so what he was saying is perhaps if full of that away from tackling climate change than ever before what fundamentally needs to change well i think that on the one hand you see people in the streets you see that youth that were at the cop trying to push the from that side the society i think people get it they need governments to act and so what needs to change will governments need to start engaging with their citizens and putting in place national laws that are going to phase out greenhouse gas emissions in
1:16 pm
a socially just way that will then allow the un were all countries have a say and can block like wilson are like trying to move forward it really is governments at home to stop putting short term interests of their companies ahead of what their young people are saying they want to happen. so i would say that we've been through we've had so many so much jennifer we've had a silly discussions going on heads of government heads of countries talking to each other and yet every time they for shorter what they hope to achieve what is the fundamental conundrum where does one need to bring about fundamental change in the front to see. well i think the fundamental conundrum is that for example paulson our own government right now is not not acting in a way that is listening to people it is and i know i'm repeating myself but if you look at who makes company policy in germany the auto industry in germany has
1:17 pm
blocked significant action by the government so the government in germany just as an example and this is true for around the world needs to step back they need to look at systemic change they need to work with with their citizens they need to put that interest in head of the car industry and the car industry needs in a in a managed way to transform into something that's consistent with the climate emergency the atmosphere is not going to wait it will continue to bring these types of impacts we're seeing until we have a systemic change in until the young people actually are the voices that governments like germany's listen to it talking about young people because the young people are getting increasingly engagement saying this fight is a future move lens what impact do you think they could have on policy. well i think you know the young people around the world are are demanding lot but they
1:18 pm
are not responsible so what we need is actually the policy makers to pick it up. they can hopefully look themselves in the mirror hearing the young people behind him and have the courage to do something different the u.n. is just a representation of what's happening on national levels but what they need to do in the government level on young people listen to them listen to the island nations who in madrid were pleading for action because their very survival is at stake they need to to roll up their sleeves and put in place national laws that will she face out greenhouse gas emissions then maybe young people around the world will feel that they have some hope for their future jennifer morgan executive director of greenpeace international a pleasure to talk to you and. thank you. to other news thousands of lebanese protests as valid outside the parliament in better don't in clashed with police calling for a new independent head of government someone an affiliated with established
