Lamakaan Lecture Series presents a Screening of the film "Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai" (2014), Directed by: Nakul Singh Sawhney Duration: 136 mins. Screening followed by Q & A session and discussion with the Director online.

Synopsis of the movie: Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai In September, 2013, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts of Western Uttar Pradesh, India, witnessed their worst ever anti-Muslim pogrom since Indian Independence. More than 100 people were killed and close to 80,000 people were displaced.

In the past, the two districts have seen relative harmony between Muslims and Hindus. What happened this time? 'Muzaffarnagar Baaqi Hai?' (Muzaffarnagar eventually?) explores this question examining the many facets of the massacre- the question of women's 'honour', which was used by organisations of the Hindu right, including BJP-RSS, to orchestrate communal violence, the merging of caste identity politics within the larger Hindutva fold, the breakdown of the once powerful farmers' union, the Bhartiya Kissan Union, whose survival hinged on the unity of Hindu and Muslim peasants, the various aspects of Dalit politics in the districts, the dubious role of the Samajwadi Party, the ruling party in Uttar Pradesh and the feeling of complete alienation and marginalisation of the Muslim community. The film looks at how the massacre found its resonance in the 2014 Indian General election campaign. Finally, it tells of the continued and growing resistance in Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts against the corporate- communal nexus.

Brief note about Director: Nakul Singh Sawhney's films include the award winning With a little help from my friends (2005), Agaurav and Undecided, (both in 2006), Once upon a time in Chheharta and the acclaimed Izzatnagari Ki Asabhya Betiyaan (2012) on "honour" crimes in Haryana.
