BBC talks to India’s Burmese community

 

Images Video Audio  
BBC Burmese is to record one of its Question Time radio programmes from New Delhi’s Taj Palace on Saturday 8 July. Dedicated to the anniversary of Burma’s uprising of 1988, the debate will involve around 50 people. It features two panels of speakers, made up of Burmese nationals who chose India as their home following the uprising. The panels include academics, members of exiled government, representative of women's groups and writers.

Tin Htar Swe, Head of BBC Burmese, explains: “The reason for choosing India for this edition of Question Time is that, after the events of 1988, the Indian government welcomed the activists and students who fled Burma. A majority of those people still live and work in India. Besides, ethnic Chin from the Burmese area bordering with the Northern Indian state of Assam are still finding refuge in India. We want to give our listeners a chance to hear the views of the Indian based Burmese community on the current political situation in Burma and on what they expect from the future.”

BBC Burmese will broadcast the debates in the evening transmissions on Wednesday 19 July, Burma’s Martyrs' Day, and Tuesday 8 August, the 18th anniversary of the popular uprising in Burma. They will also be available online, via bbcburmese.com

BBC World Service is available in India on medium and short waves and via cable television, in Bengali, English, Hindi, Tamil and Urdu.
