Shame on CBI
By M.D. Nalapat

After the CBI?s successful effort to divert the blame for defreezing the Quattrocchi accounts to itself from Sonia Gandhi, the agency needs to be renamed the Criminal Bureau of Investigation. Indeed, this it has been for some time. Since the days when Mahatma Gandhi handed over the jagir of India to the Nehru family, investigative agencies working for the central government have spent most of their man-hours going after petty officials who fall foul of the powerful, usually because they refuse to do their bidding. more >

Fatwa: The parallel Islam
By M.S.N. Menon
