    March 29, 2018

    Neyaz Farooquee’s first person’s account of understanding what lay behind the Batla House Encounter on September 10, 2008 — a single incident that changed the narrative of a colony that has pre-dominantly Muslim residents. Neighbors became suspects overnight and the police witch hunting created intense fear amongst the residents of Jamia Nagar in the capital city. Newsclick talks to Neyaz about his book, An Ordinary Man’s Guide to Radicalism.
