Addresses session on ‘Musings on the future of India’ by Madin Academy

Former Supreme Court judge and Press Council of India chairman Markandey Katju said here on Friday that the next two decades would be turbulent, violent, and chaotic for Indian democracy.

Delivering the keynote address at a session on ‘Musings on the future of India’ organised by the Madin Academy as part of the Vicennium celebrations, Mr. Katju said the next 15-20 years would be as turbulent as the period of the last Mughals after Aurangazeb’s era.

“We are going to enter a period of instability,” he said.

The session pointed out that a new socio-cultural understanding should be created to overcome the threats facing the Indian democracy. Karnataka Urban Development and Housing Minister U.T. Khader, Madin Academy chairman Sayed Ibrahim Khaleel Bukhari, senior journalist Venkatesh Ramakrishnan, and Markaz Vice Chancellor Husain Saqafi Chullikode spoke.
