  • ‘Hang Ujjal Dosanjh for treason before charging Aamir Khan with sedition’

    Aamir shared his pain and anxiety about the "disquiet...despondency" abroad the land of India. For that he has been charged with sedition.

No Indian - Modi, Aamir or any other - needs to prove his/her patriotism.

Bicycle scheme for girls, 50 per cent reservation for women in panchayats, a gender budget and several women-centric moves have earned Nitish Kumar instant popularity.
