  • Cong MPs' slur against minister, govt attracts privilege motion

    After the House was adjourned due to a ruckus over AAP MP Bhagwant Mann’s controversial filming of Parliament building, Harsimrat was reportedly talking to DMK MPs. Former Union minister  Ramesh came shouting and told Harsimrat that she was “not worthy of becoming a minister” and used foul language, which surprised the SAD minister. Another Congress MP Renuka followed Ramesh’s outburst and used “derogatory words” like “the government and ministers are ‘kachra’ (filth)”, said sources close to the minister. The Congress leaders were upset since a private members bill by its MP K V P Ramachandra Rao was listed in the Rajya Sabha for consideration, but could not be passed due to the commotion by

  • Why this man is dangerous

    It's not just his views on terror; Zakir Naik's teachings promote disharmony. But a ban won't help. Does Dr Zakir Naik promote terrorism? On Thursday, the NIA arrested a member of the Islamic Research Foundation founded by Dr Naik, for having motivated a Kerala Muslim to join Daesh. This allegation has yet to be proved. But Naik's lectures have cropped up in the background of other Daesh followers and terrorists. In his lectures, Dr Zakir Naik does not encourage terrorism. But his disapproval of it is never devoid of caveats. Perhaps the strongest condemnation of terror came in his answer to an Indian who asked whether it was ok for him to resort to terrorist acts on finding all doors closed

  • Why airlines are horses and India continues to have ghost airports

    New Delhi: Two statements in Parliament this week about airport infrastructure show why India remains a country of ghost airports and patchy air connectivity. We have close to 400 airports across the country which are un-served - they do not handle even a single flight. But we also lack airport infrastructure at several places where demand actually exists. In the first statement, Civil Aviation Minister A Gajapathi Raju laid the blame at the airlines' door and compared them to horses who can be taken near the water but cannot be made to drink it. According to him, airlines not mounting flights to many existing airports is the biggest reason for patchy air connectivity in India. The second statement

    Virat Kohli’s phenomenal impact on Indian cricket is significantly a lot more than statistics, however impressive those numbers might seem. He has injected into Indian cricket a different mindset, the sort which hasn’t been seen for a long, long time. The substantial double century he slammed on Friday night was an emphatic endorsement of that aggressive, no-holds bar mindset. For many years now Indian captains have gone into a Test match with just four bowlers. While that number would have been considerable on turning tracks where the ball would play tricks on the batsmen, the rest of the time it was a defensive move and a veritable surrender to the opposition. It straight away conveyed to the
