"The actual price of the one ambulance was Rs 11 lakh but the government bills showed that each ambulance was purchased at Rs. 23 lakh," he said after he presented the quotation of a company which was ready to sell the ambulance at Rs 11 lakh and document of the payment made to a company which supplied each ambulance at around Rs 23 lakh.''''

  • Amidst such widespread apathy, the Muslim now wants nothing other than to be treated like any ordinary citizen, entitled to fundamental human rights. Tragically, even this basic expectation is far from guaranteed.

    Muslim community is on the edge. Only the PM can address its concerns Abdul Khaliq   

    There is a volcano seething below the surface. The nation cannot achieve social harmony or development on the basis of a hierarchy of citizenship that condemns 180 million Indians to second-class status. The creeping despair and extinguishing of hope is frightening because then one becomes nihilistic and destructive, heedless of the consequences.''

    For 90 Million Muslims i.e. Muslim Females-Indian PM and other Indians are fighting for the Muslim women uplift but 90 Million Male Muslims have become the greatest hurdle.Muslims and its clergy are biggest hurdles for uplift of Muslims .Let Muslims show one Muslim who can be the Leader of the 18 Million Muslims ?? Modi is doing good thing for fighting for 90 Million Muslim Womens rights.At least half the Muslim population will be liberated from Mullhadom.
    Reading here Male Muslims view on any subject they have toatl animosty towards majority .
    On Kashmir Indian Muslims are out of synic  with majority.
    But yes these Gau rakshkas need to be tackled harshly.
    Abdul Kahliq writes well but some where in mid of Article he meanders.He also totally ignores problems of Muslim Women. Yet a readable Article.

  • http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/with-nehru-writing-to-its-pm-israel-gave-arms-to-india-in-1962/article18591835.ece?homepage=true With Nehru writing to its PM, Israel gave arms to India in 1962 Jerusalem archival record says India wanted weapons brought in ships that did not fly the Israeli flag, but Ben Gurion said, ‘No flag. No weapons’

    Despite his strong ties with the Arab world, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru did not hesitate to reach out to Israel when the situation demanded.

    According to documents in the Israeli archives in Jerusalem, at the peak of the 1962 India-China hostilities, Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion wrote to Nehru expressing Israel’s “fullest sympathy and understanding”, and provided weapons to the Indian Forces---''

    Nehru had no shame asking help from those Countries whom he used to insult world over specially in UNO .Nehru asked USA and UK to send Air Force Planes to India to defend us.Nehru brought India on its knees before the World .The  humiliation of those horrible days we the Indians have still in our hearts .

    We all felt ashamed and humilated .Faith in Nehru was compeltely shattered.

  • US Silk Road counterpoise a boost for India

    It is happy augury that spurred by China’s ambitious and much-touted Belt and Road initiative which has the potential to link itself with markets in Europe and Africa through Asian countries and the Indian Ocean, the US has revived two major infrastructure projects in South and Southeast Asia in which India would be a vital player. India had stayed away from a crucial meeting to announce the Chinese B & R initiative largely because it involved as part of it a US $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor linking China’s restive Xinjiang region to Balochistan’s Gwadar port, built with Chinese funding. The port, Indian analysts felt, could potentially be used as a naval outpost for the Chinese military. New Delhi had expressed apprehensions that with the economic corridor slated to pass through a section of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, India’s sovereignty would be compromised. Since the access that the ‘economic corridor’ would provide to China to further its hegemonistic designs with Europe and Africa would have jeopardized American interests too, the Trump administration has announced plans to swing into alternative action. The intended US counterpoise is a resuscitation of the ‘New Silk Road’ initiative, first announced by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in July 2011 in a speech in Chennai, and the Indo-Pacific Economic Corridor linking South and Southeast Asia. A brief outline of the two projects was made available in the administration’s maiden annual budget recently, which indicated that the ‘New Silk Road’ project would be a public-private initiative in which India would be a key player. This will be leveraged through side-by-side collaboration with regional countries, other bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, and the private sector. The US said “the importance of…the New Silk Road grows” as the transition in Afghanistan continues and the US “strives to help the Afghan people succeed and stand on their own.”

    The US State Department said it will deepen support for the objectives through “far-reaching” public diplomacy programmes. According to James McBride of the Council on Foreign Relations, the New Silk Road refers to a surfeit of joint investment projects and regional trade blocs that have the potential to bring economic growth and stability to Central Asia. For India, which was apprehensive of China’s intentions on CPEC, this is a big morale booster. It goes without saying that India must go whole hog in supporting the US Silk Road initiative with an eye on containing the damage from the China-Pak Economic Corridor.----''

  •  We are not talking Peaceful, Satyagrahis here. Opinion piece writers should go and face stone pelting and then form an opinion. GoI should allow the Army unfettered powers in crushing the terrorists and stone pelters.

  • Isn't throwing stones without any provocation on soldiers not an infringement of their human rights?

    Those who talk of Geneva/Vienna conventions do not realize that it is about tackling terrrorists, which is what those stone pelters are. Even in the USA, the citadel of democracy and human rights, those who attack law enforcers are shot dead. 

    Major Gogoi did not shoot to kill. He saved lives of many people, including the stone pelters. Not a single life was lost. Isn't the right to life the most important human right?

    He is a true hero. All those who think otherwise have warped values-they think that the rights of secessionists  take precedence over the lives of those upholding the unity and integrity of India.

  • "What India Lost: Nehru’s Respect For Parliamentary Methods And Deference To Opposition Views"

    Nehru's respect for parliamentary methods was unceremoniously jettisoned by his own daughter, the architect of the 1975 emergency when the Constitution was suspended, the entire opposition was incarcerated, the press was gagged and her rogue son grabbed the reigns of power under the admiring eyes of an indulgent mother. She also destroyed the original Congress party which won us our independence and usurped its name for the party she formed with a bunch of obsequious sycophants whose primary loyalty was neither to the country, its constitution, its democratic institutions' their only loyalty was to its ruling family. 

    What India has lost during the decades of misrule by the dynasty will be recovered only when India will be fully Congress-must and rid of its pernicious legacy.

  • "Nehru in his lifetime was the most loved politician of India after Gandhi and it was because he was always truthful to his people"

    Apoorvanand seems to suffer from nostalgic amnesia. Nehru was truthful? That's hilarious. 

    1. Did he disclose what happened to Netaji?

    2. Did he disclose the true nature of his relationship with Lady Mountbatten?

    3. Did he tell his countrymen why he succumbed to Jinnah's blackmail and accepted the vivisection of India over Gandhiji's vehement objection?

    4. Was he truthful when he said he was following non-alignment when he was firmly aligning India with the Soviet Union?

    Nehru assiduously built up his image while sidelining his more illustrious colleagues like Netaji, Sardar Patel, Ambedkar and Rajaji. That is the reason why Nehru, the great democrat, became the founding father of a political dynasty which has ruled over independent India for decades.

  • "we matrilineal Malayalis who marry cousins and eat beef will have to suffer the mor­onic mores of the Yamuna plains"

    There are many Malayali traditions which have been phased out; the following are some of those "moronic mores" practiced by Ramachandran's predecessors which are no longer in vogue.

    1. 'Low caste' women uncovering their breasts in the presence of the "upper" castes

    2. Polygamy among the Namboodiris

    3. Matrilineal families which have been supplanted by nuclear families

    4. Consanguineous marriages due to increased awareness of the dangers of inbreeding.

    Rajesh Ramachandran betrays his insularity by describing the rest of India as the "Yamuna plains". As for his desire to consume beef, bond appetite. The UCC is not concerned with dietary issues.

    PS: Thanks Anwaarbhai for reminding me to counter the last paragraph of this piece. I had intended to but forgot all about it when I moved on to the 'Azaadi' issue.

  • It is a shame on our Indian Army with Major Gagoi's  inhumanism using the pelter as a  human shield to contain violence. Still more shocking is the endorsement and praise by  the Army Chief, who otherwise had  hit headlines for being elevated by BJP byepassing seniority. India has lost its morality for the gross violation of human rights. Having failed in its strategy of   bringing peace in Kashmir valley, BJP stands exposed before all nations. Modi, who earlier picked holes and derided Manmohansingh for failing to contain the excesses of Pakistan, stands clueless now. The Kashmiri  youth who are yet to see their grievances addressed by the centre are gravitated towards extremists pampered by Pakistan. Falling short of strategy, BJP stands with crossed fingers only to end up with the blame game and cheap gimmicks. The headless  defence ministry augments the woe. The poor wisdom of the  ally of BJP in Kashmir and the lack of foresightedness of BJP subscribe to the lawlessness in the valley. .
