Irrfan Khan and call for introspection in Islam: Why we need to encourage more like him

Irrfan may not be the reformer many hope he is and the entire debate might even be an offshoot of a promotional event around his film but this quibbling over motive is ingenuous. Public figures like Irrfan needs our encouragement. #Terrorism #Islam #Hinduism #Kabul #Ramzan #Baghdad: #Dhaka #Shia #Irrfan Khan #Sunni #islamic-state #ISIS #NICE #Christanity #Ayyan Hirsi Ali #terrorism and religion #Id-ul-Fitr #reformation in Islam

RSS flip-flop on homosexuality indicates gay men in India remain in exile, writes Ashok Row Kavi

RSS flip-flop on homosexuality indicates gay men in India remain in exile, writes Ashok Row Kavi

My submission to the RSS is: “You’ve come a long way. Now listen to the scientific evidence". The World Health Organisation has removed homosexuality from its list of mental diseases over two three decades ago. The Indian Psychiatrist Association has officially given a clarion call that homosexuality is a “normal variant of human sexual behaviour”. And it’s time you moved on homosexuality too. #InMyOpinion #Hinduism #Homosexuality #RSS #Transgender #LGBTQ #Ashok Row Kavi #Dattareya Hosabale

Shashi Tharoor defended his argument against Anupam Kher's comment in a column on NDTV calling it absurd. He pointed out that it was perhaps the minorities in the country who had to struggle much harder to be accepted, something that the majority Hindus take for granted. #Congress #Hinduism #Shashi Tharoor #GoodReads #Anupam Kher #Twitterm SAnghis #Twitter spat
