Banerjee boomerangs on Lalu's face
From Saroj Sharma in Ahmedabad

Modi vindicated again
Yet another judicial slap for UPA

THE Gujarat High Court dismissed UC Banerjee Committee as illegal. The UPA had appointed it amidst much fanfare within months of their government coming to power at the Centre. A leading English daily headlined the story as ?Lalu proposed, Gujarat HC disposes.?

In a nutshell, the headline sums up all that has transpired since the fateful day when on February 27, 2002, coach S-6 was set ablaze at a small non-descript town of Gujarat called Godhra by an unruly mob, scorching to death 57 innocent passengers which was probably the worst ever communal crime in the history of independent India.    more >

UPA bats for dead Trishul
By Sandhya Jain

Congress has no qualms about misusing CBI
BARELY twenty-four hours after Defence Ministry sources said the defunct Trishul surface-to-air missile project would be wound up in December this year, Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee was forced to state that the project was being extended by a year. This is despite the fact that the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO)?s 15-year-old attempt has cost the exchequer nearly Rs 300 crore, and failed despite over 80 tests.    more >

A poverty of scores, profits in slogans
Balbir K. Punj

TILL May this year, the UPA Government, and more so the UPA leader, the Congress was trumpeting its achievements of two-year of rule. But suddenly the lead party of the ruling coalition is digging up the past for slogans. Handy comes the big bluff of the 70s, Garibi Hatao and Twenty-Point Programme. We are told that these slogans are to be revived.    more >

Politics of clemency
UNLIKE Mehbooba Mufti?s PDP, which is largely a platform of the extremists in the Kashmir Valley, the National Conference and the National Congress are considered more nationalist. To that extent, they used to better reflect the national political conscience in Jammu and Kashmir. Both former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah and Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad have deeply hurt the nation with their uncalled for comments on Mohammad Afzal?s hanging.    more >

Gujarat HC slams Lalu?s political Godhra probe
By Easwaran Nambudiri

IN a severe indictment, the Gujarat High Court last Friday declared the Centre?s setting-up of the U.C. Banerjee Committee to probe the Godhra train carnage ?illegal, unconstitutional? and ?null and void.? The court also said the committee?s report shall not be tabled in Parliament.    more >

Unity in diversity is the identity of Hindutva ?Dr Bajrang Lal Gupt

"THE internal conflicts going on in various countries of the world have shown that unity in diversity is a curse for them. But in case of India, the diversity is an evidence of national unity.

?We are unpatriotic, we are Communists?
By Shyam Khosla

THE CPM is unabashedly unpatriotic. Its actions, responses and mindset on almost all issues that have a bearing on supreme national interests and India?s security prove this to the hilt. The party?s interpretation of the Marxist ideology prevents it from taking a nationalist line on any major issue, though in order to confuse the masses, it names its publications with fancy names like Deshabhmani and Deshsevak.    more >

Christianity, Islam and Hinduism

WHATEVER one might say about Pope Benedict?s unusual remarks about Islam, the truth is that he was only repeating what has been obvious down the centuries, except that for the Pope to associate Islam with violence is for the pot to call the kettle black.    more >
