The Jabidah Massacre

Season 1, Ep. 12
The Philippines is a country rich in culture and history. That history goes far back and is characterized by both pre-colonial achievements, 300 plus years of Spanish rule and post-colonial turmoil. A lot of the problems the Philippines still experiences today have their roots in our colonial past.The Jabidah Massacre is no different. But apart from its roots in our colonial past, the Jabidah Massacre is a story of an overly ambitious and yet morally questionable government, of an ethnic group being deceived for selfish reasons and a historical claim to a piece of land that, arguably, should probably just be left alone.As a result of this massacre, not only did the Philippines see a weakening of our relations with an important Southeast Asian neighbor, but a worsening of internal relations with our Muslim Filipino brothers and sisters, as well. And yet some individuals still believe that the massacre never happened.Listen now to know a bit more about this historic crime that changed the course of Philippine history in a substantial way.Please note that this is the final episode of this season. Season 2 will be launched soon.

The Sialkot Lynching

Season 1, Ep. 10
Less than four weeks ago, Pakistanis woke up to some horrific news out of Sialkot in Punjab. The images and videos uploaded on Twitter and YouTube by locals from the area showed a mob beating a single man who could barely defend himself. What was his sin?The actions were incomprehensible and forced Pakistanis to look inward and to inspect the laws of the land. With the rise of far-right and extremist ideologies all over the world, it is now Pakistan’s turn to have a long look at the compromises it makes that further legitimise elements in its society that lead to destruction, death and international disrepute.Please note that if you do google the videos and images of the crime perpetrated in this case, consider yourself warned as the images are very triggering.Asia In The Shadows is on social media:Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/aitspod/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/aitspodcast Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/aitspod/ Music Credits:Displaced Memories - David HorowitzCursed House - Sergey CheremisinovDISCLAIMER:The views and opinions expressed by the podcast creators, hosts, and guests do not necessarily reflect the official policy and position of Podcast Network Asia, the hosts of the program or other programs of the network.
