Bharat Ratna for Vajpayee, Malaviya: Govt needs to stop politicising the reward

If the purpose of the award is to bestow everlasting greatness on the recipient or etch his memory and achievements on the nations mind for ever, the Bharat Ratna has failed miserably. #InMyOpinion #Indira Gandhi #Jawaharlal Nehru #bharat ratna #Atal Behari Vajpayee #Madan Mohan Malaviya

Conversion row: Ghar wapsi is illogical and so is its ideological opposition

The Sangh's Ghar Wapsi makes no sense, unless it is a formal conversion programme like those offered by other religions. Opponents of Ghar Wapsi also are wrong to assume that all other forms of conversion are above board. #Religion #BJP #Islam #InMyOpinion #Hinduism #Hindutva #Sangh Parivar #Opposition #RSS #Secularism #Conversion #Sangh #religious conversion #Convert #ghar wapsi #Anti-Sangh activists #Christanity

Are Rajya Sabha disruptions ploy to embarrass PM Modi on insurance bill before Obama visit?

The BJP's attitude to opposition disruptions is hardening. The party has decided that is the Rajya Sabha will not pass the insurance bill by disrupting sessions, it will bring the law through an ordinance #Congress #BJP #InMyOpinion #Modi #Insurance Bill #Rajya Sabha Disruptions #Conversion Debate

God damn the Taliban: Peshawar school attack reveals our own moral emptiness

In a world gone mad, when ever increasing and spectacular violence has spawned by ever blinkered tit-for-tat rationales, children have come to represent that one, last line of moral resistance. The point when most of us will say, No, we dont care who did this or why or to whom. This is wrong. #Terrorism #Pakistan #Taliban #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #children #Hiroshima #Gaza #War #Terrorists #Humanity #Peshawar attack #collateral damage

Rouble rubble, jihad and sliding oil: Here's how the west is shooting itself in the foot

The politics of the west's sanctions against Russia and the Saudi bid to fix Iran and Russia by keeping oil prices low is driving the world to its next crisis. The west may find that in trying to fix Putin, it may be shooting itself in the foot #Japan #oil #Europe #InMyOpinion #Geopolitics #Iraq #Great Depression #West #George Bush #US Sanctions #ISIS #Peshawar attack #Rouble Crisis #West Asian Oil #Saudi-Iran Rivalry

Peshawar school attack: As Pakistan mourns, it's not the time for us to gloat

Indians may feel smug that Pakistan's support of terrorism has now begun to bite them, but there is a different lesson we need to learn from the Taliban's mass murder of children in Peshawar: theocracy kills its own #Terrorism #Islamic terrorism #Al-Qaeda #Pakistan #Taliban #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #LeT #Boko Haram #Tehreek-i-Taliban #Mass Murder #ISIS #Peshawar Taliban Attack #Tehreek-e-Pakistan Taliban #Pak Army School #Peshawar attack

Peshawar school attack: Pak Taliban killing children; when will this stop?

Where will all this stop? Or, will it? There doesnt seem to be much hope in sight. There appears to be no moral beacon left for terrorist outfits like Taliban. No leadership to tell them where to draw the line. #Terrorism #Pakistan #Islam #Jihad #InMyOpinion #Peshawar #terrorist #Jihadists #Tehreek-i-Taliban #Peshawar school attack #schoolchidlren

Step-children of Vijay Diwas: We treat our war heroes and families so badly

India does not remember its heroes of the Bangladesh War. And the spouses of our martyred soldiers often live in penury, thanks to the callousness of a bureaucratic state. We need a proper Veteran's Commission to take up their causes #InMyOpinion #Army #Indian Army #defence ministry #Vijay Diwas #1971 war #Martyrs #Vijay Diwas.
