Dr Vivek Kaul, originally from Jammu & Kashmir, completed his schooling and pre-medical education in Srinagar, Kashmir. His father held the position of Chief Engineer in the power development department, while his mother was the head of the Hindi department at Kashmir University. Dr Kaul pursued his medical degree at Osmania Medical College and obtained his Master’s in Surgery from Bombay University. He was later selected as a Senior Resident in Surgery at the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

In 1996, Dr Kaul moved to the United Kingdom, where he worked as a Surgeon at Brighton & Sussex University Hospital. His areas of expertise included General Surgery, Laparoscopy, and Endoscopy.

Unfortunately, in 1990, Dr Kaul, along with other Hindus, had to leave Kashmir due to the unbearable conditions created by the violence unleashed on them by terrorists. Driven by his desire to make a positive impact on humanity and contribute to charitable causes, Dr Kaul is dedicated to devoting his life to these pursuits.

About the Show

Amidst widespread protests in London, over 500 individuals condemned the controversial BBC documentary “The Modi Question.” Accusations of the documentary being “anti-India, anti-Hindu, and anti-Modi” led to demands for defunding the platform. The Government of India even evoked emergency laws to block the broadcast, sparking a global debate on how the issues presented impact notions of Indianness, religion, identity, and political parties.

In this significant episode, Chief Explorer Rajan Nazran converses with Dr Vivek Kaul to explore the viral BBC Documentary that faced censorship by the government.

While the government’s ban has drawn criticism, the podcast delves into the other side of the story. Questions arise regarding the timing and motives behind resurfacing a past incident after twenty years. Is it an attempt to reignite long-dormant tensions or a genuine concern for the truth?

The documentary may present a one-sided view, focusing on the suffering of Muslims while overshadowing the plight of Hindus who were also killed. Dr Vivek Kaul points out that the narrative paints an inaccurate picture of India as a country intolerant of Muslims, contrary to reality. He highlights the unrecorded incidents of Hindus who were converted and raped, suggesting that the documentary may fuel communal tensions between Hindus and Muslims.

For a comprehensive understanding and exploration of the lesser-known perspective, tune in to this insightful podcast episode.

Produced by Global Indian Series for the Global Indian Network.
