 Debate
Power Consolidation in China
Asad Mirza The 20th Congress of the China’s Communist Party will begin on 16 October, a five yearly exercise. This time it is expected to approve Xi Jinping as country’s paramount leader for the third unprecedented time. Recent rumours of a military or a political coup in China seem to be largely unsubstantiated and unreliable. They can be dismissed as based on the fact that the current leadership has in the past week acted harshly against what it called a “political clique” against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and this is not a new phenomenon and more or less, happens before every major party conference. Last week, China's former Deputy Public Secur...

Even after 72 years of the Republic, the Scheduled Caste and the Scheduled Tribe population continue to be the victims of caste prejudices and atrocit...

Muslim Leaders should Focus on Social Issues
Asad Mirza Following the Supreme Court’s order in 2017, Muslim religious leaders had shown willingness to outlaw the Triple Talaq – a completely unIslamic practice, but alas even after five years they have not taken any concrete step in this regard. It seems as if every ruling party rakes up the issues related to the Indian Muslims deliberately over the years, before any elections particularly. Further, what confounds one is why do the Muslim religious leaders try to resolve the issues facing the community near these dates only, why don’t they stick to their original plans?One fails to understand the reason that why did the AIMPLB held a meeting to discuss the issue ...

Spare Tiranga from politics, Celebrate its spirit
