Transgender people in police force: Other states should emulate the Tamil Nadu model of sexual diversity

transgender people will get the concessions of women in terms of educational qualifications, physical fitness and reservation. An amazing turnaround for a state, which in 2013 had rejected a transgender candidate when she failed a medical examination for police recruitment. #CriticalPoint #house work #Se workers #Supreme Court #supreme court 2015 verdict #Tamil Nadu #Third gender #transgender people #transgenders

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh was absolutely right in berating Pakistan at the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) home ministers' meeting in Islamabad and staging some drama because that’s the only utility of this regional body #Asean #European Union #India Pakistan relations #InMyOpinion #International relations #NAFTA #Rajnath Singh #SAARC #Saarc home ministers' meeting #SAFTA #SAPTA #South Asia

Zakir Naik and Abdul Nazer Madani’s TV preachings fuel terror on the street

Zakir Naik may find an instant audience among the unemployed, poor Muslim youth across India because they have been marginalised for generations, but trying to radicalise the Muslims in Kerala is a far more sinister idea because they are an integral part of mainstream society with absolutely no reason to complain. #India #islamic-state #Kerala #Madani #Muslims in India #Radicalisation #Terrorists #Zakir Naik
