Sedition charge is silly but Amnesty's moth-eaten credibility has taken further beating

In trying to fish in political waters, Amnesty risks sullying its image further. A rights organisation's moral weight depends on whether its integrity is unimpeachable. Amnesty's is up for questioning. #Taliban #ABVP #Constitution of India #Aakar Patel #Amnesty International India #Jihadi John #Anti-India Slogans #Gita Sahgal #Moazzam Begg #Pro-Azaadi slogans #Kashmir secessionist movement #human rights violations in Kashmir #Cage

Disruptive forces: Is Arvind Kejriwal the Donald Trump of Indian politics?

The irresponsible statements by AAP's senior leaders is perfectly in line with the brand of politics sans gravitas that its leader Arvind Kejriwal represents. His authoritarian wielding of power, even when his political positions are exposed as deeply hypocritical, leaves no place for criticism, only blind adulation. #Donald Trump #Delhi High Court #Hillary Clinton #Arvind Kejriwal #Dharna #Manish Sisodia #Constitution of India #AAP #Union Territory #Ashish Khetan #Aaam Admi Party #Delhi Lieutant Governor Najeeb Jung #LG Najeeb Jung #US Presidental Election

SC's Arunachal Pradesh ruling raises crucial question: Is it time to scrap Article 356?

Given its notorious political history, Article 356 should have been scrapped long ago. If the provision has continued to remain in the statute book, it’s only because of its usefulness to the ruling party of the day at the Centre, in executing the design of destabilising Opposition-run governments. #Arunachal Pradesh #CriticalPoint #Indira Gandhi #Uttarakhand #Supreme Court of India #Jawaharlal Nehru #Constitution of India #Harish Rawat #JP Rajkhowa

Let's debate Uniform Civil Code because we've long ignored real minorities

The secularism debate, which reflexively seeks a ban on any debate over Uniform Civil Code, fails to take into account that in the name of protecting Muslims or other minorities' rights, communal rights have been prioritized over human rights of individual within minority groups. #BJP #Constitution of India #Law Commission #Uniform Civil Code #democratic #Minority rights #secular #All India Muslim Law Personal Board #Sharia courts #Article 25 #triple talaq #Zakia Soman #common civil code #BMMA #Farah Faiz

Arun Jaitley's outburst is justified: The Supreme Court is playing God

Friday's newspapers tell us that the Supreme Court has ordered a special investigation team to probe charges of wife-swapping among navy officers.
