Baba Ramdev says Sadhvi Pragya seems innocent

By Deepak Kumar Rath

Stating that Sadhvi Pragya seems innocent, Baba Ramdev said he supports her.    more >

Hindu leaders being humiliated
Statement of Shankaracharya Swami Nishchalanand Saraswati

PURI Shankaracharya Swami Nishchalanand Saraswati said that the nation is passing through a crisis and saints are being wrongly humiliated and centres of faith are in the danger of being demolished. Speaking on the insults heaped on saints, he recalled how the Kanchi Shankaracharya was jailed and Swami Laxmanananda was murdered. After all, what was their fault? His only ?crime? was that he had been serving the Vanvasis for the last 41 years.    more >

Fables from ATS
R Balashankar

MAHARASHTRA Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) has all the powers. Maharashtra is the only state armed with such ?draconian? right to excesses on citizens under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). It is safe because it is under the UPA. It is doing a job that the UPA wants it to do. It is above the law of the land, it need not take the normal legal procedures, it can even violate the fundamental rights, human dignity, religious rights and sensibilities because it is fighting terror, about which the entire nation is concerned; and no nationalist in the country wants any leniency.    more >

Orissa under Attack?II
Church strategy during British period

By Balbir K Punj

THE broad picture put out by the `secular? media, (particularly at the national level) only mirrors the position of the church; that missionaries serve the underprivileged without any evangelical agenda. The Manuwadi vested interests (read Sangh Parivar) cannot stand the emancipation of the hapless poor and resort to violence against the church.    more >

The challenges before Hinduism
By RK Ohri, IPS (Retd)

INDIA?S Hindu civilisational identity is in grave peril. After being a civilisation in retreat for more than one thousand years, we have become a civilisation under siege. Barely 1,200 years ago Afghanistan and today?s Pakistan were part of the great Hindu civilisation which extended from Bactria, Afghanistan, Gilgit in Kashmir, Seistan in Iran and Sindh to Indonesia.    more >

Pluralism in Indian religious tradition
By Arif Mohammed Khan

WHAT is religion (dharma)? The Brhadaranyaka Upanishad responds to this question by a thunderclap, da da da. It means dama, daan and dayaa, self control, charity and compassion. Indian tradition holds these values as three basic ingredients of religion.    more >

Terrorists are mercenaries
By Jagannath Dhar

PAKISTAN President Asif Ali Zardari made a significant statement when he said Kashmiri freedom fighters are terrorists. India has, rightly, welcomed it. But there have been widespread demonstrations in Kashmir Valley against this statement. That is because truth is, sometimes, such a bitter medicinal pill that it is difficult to gulp it down the human throat.    more >

What now with Obama as new US President?
By M.V. Kamath

IT has been a long, long way from the time when Abraham Lincoln fought a bloody Civil War (1861-1865) to liberate the blacks, a long way since the blacks in Montgomery, Alabama rose in anger on December 1, 1955, when Rosa Parks was refused a front row seat in a public transport bus because of her colour, leading the way for a till-then unknown Martin Luther King to make a powerful plea for the true liberation of his people.    more >

Keep greed at bay

A tiger once attacked a group of bandits who were camping in the forest after looting some travellers. The tiger kept a golden bangle from the loot for himself, as it glitter and somehow pleased his senses.

A pernicious nexus
Maoists, evangelists and jehadis

By Dr Babu Suseelan

PROSELYTISING Christism, Marxism and jehadi Islamism are totalitarian and rigid empire-building political systems for invasion, expansionism, plunder, oppression, exploitation and destruction of ?non-believers? and their traditional cultures and dogmas.

A Matter Of Economics (Organiser, 19-10-2008);
?VANI NAGARAJ, 613, Boudhnagar, Secunderabad

Shri R Balashankar has attempted to focus on parallel appeasement of the UPA government with that of US government. But the act of benevolence on the part of finance and aviation ministers to bail out the ailing aviation industry and melting capital markets are uncalled for.    more >
