Cast the First Stone
The UK is rocked by sexual scandals and yet the BBC moralises on the atrocity in Delhi by claiming that this is a disease in Indian society. For the sake of balance, the BBC should at the outset say this is a worldwide problem in which Britain has one of the worst records. Where is the BBC documentary looking into the harrowing tales of sexual abuse of which we have been hearing of almost everyday?

Is this Evil?
If nothing is done, IS will be free to continue its rampage against the ancient treasures of Iraq and Syria, several of whose most important sites are under the group’s control. This may seem unimportant in the context of so many human lives being lost, but from my own acquaintance with Iraqis and Syrians, I see it is deeply demoralising to people who have already lost family, friends and homes. It’s salt in their wounds and it takes away hope for a post-war future.
