Redefining the nation: What India must learn from Pakistan’s mistakes

The two-nation theory, which held that Hindus and Muslims were separate nations and hence can not exist together, championed by Mohd.

Rohtak brave-hearts: The ritual of social media outrage is all ‘chutzpah’

Kiss of Love: RSS better watch out as campuses lead charge against moral policing

Since it involves young people, coercion is bound to meet with resistance. They won’t wait like elderly and more mature people hoping for the storm to clear. They will strike back. We saw it in Kerala and now, it is Delhi. That they would move to the RSS headquarters suggests what they perceive to be the root source of the problem #BJP #Delhi #Kerala #Kiss of Love #Kochi #moral policing #RSS
