Promoting the Hindu Way of Life

Cow vigilantes linked to extremist Hindu groups affiliated to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India have taken up the cudgel for protecting their venerable “Gau Mata” from the killers. This devotion to protect cow has contributed to rise in vigilante violence across the country, especially in the BJP-ruled states. Protecting cows, the animal which the Hindus consider holy, is laudable. But it should not be at the cost of precious human life. Human life is sacred; that the holiness of the cow must not supersede the sanctity of human life. Cow vigilantism is commonly used in India...

Red Terror a big threat to nation’s security

In spite of having enough resources, cutting edge technologies, manpower, sophisticated weapons and nothing too strenuous training to combat guerrilla warfare, each attack by the Left Wing Extremists leaves the security forces aghast and the all-powerful governments in the country helpless in containing the menace. So far, according to sources, about 14,000 innocent people including 2,700 security personnel, have fallen prey to the red terror in different states of the country. Are these attacks not indicating the utter failure of the state and the central intelligence agencies in tracking the Naxalite movements? Are these not the loopholes and failures...

In March last the central government put a new rule into the annual budget bill giving a...

Intelligence failure claims 25 CRPF personnel’s life

The whole nation is mourning the death of 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in the deadliest attack by Naxals in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh. While the ruling party leaders, including the prime minister and the home minister, condemned the cowardly act of Naxalites, leaders of various other parties, though they have also condemned the incident, but questioned the tall claim of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that demonetisation of 500 and 1000 denomination currency notes would break the backbone of terrorism and naxalism in the country. In fact, the Sukma attack by the left wing terrorists have massacred...

Modi remains matchless

In the landslide victory, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has not only won 312 out of 403 seats in India’s biggest state assembly, the most politically critical of five state elections, whose results were announced on March 11, but has also swept its rivals away in the currents of saffron. The capture of 312 seats in Uttar Pradesh (UP) was the result of hard work. Political pundits, normally a quarrelsome bunch, are unanimous in calling Modi as the biggest vote-getter. Having won power in 2014, the Modi-led government at the Centre had begun to lose momentum....
