A Twelve-Year Night is a compelling piece of art about the undying spirit of resistance in the face of authoritarian regimes.

The verdicts in the Swami Aseemanand and G N Saibaba cases expose the roguery of the Indian state. The former was let off despite clear and close links with saffron terror and mass murder, while the latter was sentenced to life imprisonment for being sympathetic to a people’s resistance to state oppression. While such fascistisation is visible across the globe, in India, it finds resonance with the hegemonic, ruling-class ideology of Brahminism, which the current regime seeks to uphold.

What constitutes anti-national activities has always been contested by intellectuals but accusing them of punishable offence is an attempt to silence the debate.
