Jammu people are “not” stronger than Kashmiris?
Straight talk
By K B Jandial “The people of Jammu are not stronger than the people of Kashmir”. This is reportedly said by a senior BJP Minister in the Mufti Govt. while discussing with media persons the possible result of the ongoing movement for full fledged Jammu AIIMS.

Comparison of people in any manner is uncalled for as it is demeaning to rate people of any region as weak, timid or casual while make other an embodiment of strength. Now, when ...

Beyond AIIMS’ narrative
By K.N. Pandita State Government’s handling of Jammu AIIMS issue is a sordid story of coalition partner BJP’s capitulation to lust for power.

BJP should have tried for the lesser evil so that it would not need adopting the policy of surrender. Instead, it chose a party that is born fro...

A divided verdict
By Amit Kushari (IAS Retd) After every hanging usually there is a controversy as to whether death penalty should be deleted from our statute book. The same controversy has come back again.

This time another important controversy has arisen— the hanging has sharply divided the nation into two distinct parts — we stand totally polarised. After the hanging I had a casual walk in a busy market place and talked to a large number of p...
