ALWAR LYNCHING: AN OPEN LETTER TO INDIA’S MINORITIES AFFAIRS MINISTER 
 
Mr Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi,
 
IN ANY different circumstances, I would have addressed you as 'honourable' minister, but you just made some effort to lose that epithet. You actually stood up in Parliament and said that the Alwar lynching of Muslims did not happen? None of your party leaders, including ministers, took that line. It is not that they wanted a more credible person to say such a thing. They, my dear, wanted a ranking member of the tribe of people who impersonate as saviours of minorities to say something utterly inane. And you made the cut. Congratulations.

We in Punjab have known this tribe. In 1984, when the Indian Army tanks came trundling into the Golden Temple complex and Akal Takht, the supreme temporal seat of the Sikhs, was reduced to ruins, we had a top cleric, the then head priest of Golden ...

What is communal is fundamentally irreligious. Religion sees one-ness in all Nature. Therefore, religion unites, and it unites not only man with man, but also man ...
  


Nationalism with different variety
27.12.16 - MASOOD PESHIMAM

Sir Winston Churchill had sarcastically thanked Germany for partially attacking England and diverting its whole resources and arsenal in assaulting Russia as it was to the advantage of England.  He could visualize the collapse of Germany under Hitler as the Russian forces were not capable of tolerating the vicissitudes of the chilling Russian cold.
 
The visualized consequences of the multiple conflicts in the teeth of the second world war flowed form Churchill’s expression.
 
It is said that the thoughts flowed from Churchill’s cheroot or the cigar. One often quoted thought of Churchill was that the politics is the last recourse for the scoundrels. With certain alteration the new concept can be defined as the patriotism is the last recourse for the vested political interest.  It is the vested political interest which has developed the knack and flair of whipping up the pseudo nationalism or the ultra patriotism carrying the undertones of jingoism ...
