On the other hand, we lost areas of strong nationalism in partition. It's a fact and must be faced. There is no nation without a national hegemonic project. #JNU #InMyOpinion #Afzal Guru #Modi government #anti-national #Azad Kashmir #Universal adult franchise #national hegemony

#PachauriHatao: Guilt, shame and loneliness for the victim, impunity and immunity for the predator

So power wins again. Why should this be surprising? As women, we know by now that our protests will not be taken seriously, our complaints will be dismissed. #InMyOpinion #Sexual violence #Sexual harassment #Urvashi Butalia #Vishaka guidelines #TERI #Pachauri

Siachen: Stop the self-flagellation; it's wrong to say we Indians don't value life

Perhaps a new world order, a fresh sense of pride, more starch in the spine, the advent of technology and a wider knowledge base have all contributed to stand by each other and not give up. #Defence #InMyOpinion #Indian Coast Guard #Siachen avalanche #Lance Naik Hanamanthappa Koppad

Allah is not opposed: It's those who fear independent women that oppose female qazis

The fear among the clergy is that women qazi would be more keen to fight for the rights of women in matters of separation and alimony. And they could lead a movement for reforms and equal rights. The opposition is because of the fear of independent women. Not Allah. #InMyOpinion #Women Qazis #Indian Muslim women's movement #Khalid Usmani #Islamic history #Muslim clergy
