Sordid end of coalition government
K.N. Pandita The coalition government has collapsed, perhaps belatedly. Hindsight shows that much damage could have been averted if the government had fallen much earlier. Coalition governments are not unknown in a democratic set up. However, at least there has to be a modicum of ideological compatibility. When BJP decided to be the partner in a coalition government with PDP after previous election, two things could become transparent. One was that the BJP betrayed no qualms of conscience in deviating from its cut and dried nationalistic policy as is generally believed. Seco...

Besides being against the tenets of Islam, the violent killing of Edi...

Why doesn’t Kashmir stand up for Ramzan initiatives
Straight Talk

Anti-peace brigade is the new development in Kashmir which spikes all such initiatives. But the unexplained issue is when Kashmir will stand up to this motley crowd of youngsters. Why the politicians have conveniently slipped into hibernation? They did it when minuscule KPs were forced to mig...
