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.

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 ...
