Law Commission in J&K
By B L Saraf What was conceived in summer this year is, hopeful, getting delivered in the winter? State Government, we are told, is in final stages of giving shape and form to the first ever State Law Commission. In July this year government ordered creation of a Law Commission with the aim and object, ” to weed out archaic and redundant laws, besides help the State to be in know of the laws which, in future , changing times may render obsolete, and keep it alive to the necessity of new laws demanded by the emerging situations and developing circumstances .” Much water has flown down the legislative drain in the Sub – Continent ever since Lord Macaulay took ov...

Farooq Sahib, PoK doesn’t belong to Pak
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Controversies are neither new to Dr. Farooq Abdullah nor is he averse to these. Many feel that he deliberately creates these but the fact is that he probably relishes controversies that are almost synonym to him. The beauty about him is that his controversial observations are usually applauded by the audience wherever he speaks especially when he mixes a heavy dose of his emotions with raised pitch to sound logical and correct, but more often he is not. The recent much talked about his statements on PoK and mocking PM Modi and BJP to dare getting it vacated from Pakistan and hoist Tricolor at Lal Chowk, fall in this category. Farooq Abdullah is technical...

Dark Memories of 8th November 2016
By Amit Kushari I don’t think I can ever forget 8th November 2016. The festive season had just ended with Diwali, Kali puja and Bhaiya dooj coming to an end. I had come back from my evening walk and had switched on the TV. The PM had started giving his historic speech on demonetisation. I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears……the PM was saying, ” Aaj raat 12 baje ke baad 500 aur 1000 ke note legal tender nahi rahenge.” A few days back I had withdrawn my pension in 500 rupee notes and on the morning of 8th November my wife had withdrawn her arrear pension in 500 rupee notes. My sister had arrived from USA the same day and from the airport she got a bundle of 500 rupee notes in exch...

Playing the politics of obduracy
By K.N. Pandita Obduracy and inflexibility are not the tools to play politics with. The Hurriyat leaders believe their success lies in being obdurate to the hilt. Who forces them to walk the talk? Actually, Jinnah can be called the founder of the politics of obduracy. He was an intelligent person and committed no fault in reading the mind of Indian Muslims correctly. ‘As long as there are fools in the world a clever man should never worry about his bread and butter’, said the great historian Ibn Khaldun, Hurriyatis, think Jinnah has left a model for them to follow. In the new permutation ISI replaces the colonial rulers and Hurriyatis the Muslim League. Therefore the battle lin...

Greater Autonomy: A Step Closer To Azadi?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial After long time, autonomy debate has come to the centre stage of J&K and national political discourse, mainly due to P Chidambaram's support for ‘Greater Autonomy’ for J&K, broadly calling ‘azadi’ seekers as autonomy supporters. Like a hot potato, the Congress party immediately distanced itself from Chidambaram’s controversial remark. Chidambaram’s statement has opened up a Pandora Box with politicians of all hues joining the fray- for or against autonomy- cum –azadi for ‘restive’ J&K. While PM Modi didn’t miss the opportunity to condemn the former Union Home Minister and a senior lawyer for batting for “azadi” seekers, Dr. Farooq Abdullah slammed one and...
