Indian Muslims’ Under Representation in Elections 2024
Asad Mirza The results of 2024 general elections in India have yet again proved that the common voter is the ultimate kingmaker, one who believes in democracy (lok tantra) and is not easily hoodwinked by the system/machinations (tantra). Further 67% Indian voters are still secular, but were browbeaten to take a back seat due to the high decibel campaigns by the Hindutva forces to silence and intimidate them. The confidence with which the BJP’s top brass in the country led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi plunged into the electoral fray in 2024, belied its expectations, finally, and many say saved the country from falling further into an abyss of intolerance and majoritari...

Despite fighting each other in some States, the I.N.D.I. Alliance managed to maintain pre-poll unity, upholding ‘gathabandhan dharma.’ It is pe...

‘Navreh’ message for the displaced Pandits of Kashmir
K N Pandita The New Year (Navreh = Nava Varsha) of the now displaced community of the Hindus of Kashmir Valley is celebrated according to the Saptrishi calendar entering the 5100th year. This five–thousand–year–old calendar was suddenly discarded and rubbished with the advent of Muslim rule in the mid-14th century. However, historians like the author of Baharistan-i-Shahi written in the early 16th century, did use the Saptrishi calendar alongside the Hijra calendar which the Muslim missionaries had brought to Kashmir. On a penultimate night, Kashmiri Hindus invariably observe the tradition of filling the platter called ‘thaal bharun'. At least seven items like a handful of ric...

Ram Lalla Mandir: Critics ‘Sink’ in Ocean of Faith
Straight Talk
