    On the Monday edition of Times Now's show The Newshour, editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami referred to journalist Asad Ashraf as a 'cover for the Indian Mujahideen'. The following is Asad's own take on that particular situation and the present state of journalism as a whole: As I sit to write this piece, images from the day Arnab Goswami called me a 'cover for the Indian Mujahideen' in his studio, return to my mind.

  • Gold slides to three-month low as dollar soars after Yellen comments

    By Vijaykumar Vedala BENGALURU (Reuters) - Gold fell below $1,200 for the first time in more than three months on Monday, as the dollar hit its highest since end-April against the yen after U.S. Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen said the central bank should raise interest rates. The Fed should increase interest rates "in the coming months" if the economy picks up as expected and jobs continue to be generated, Yellen said on Friday, bolstering the case for a rate hike in June or July. Gold fell 0.8 percent to $1,202.80 per ounce at 0313 GMT, after earlier touching $1,199.60, its lowest since Feb. 17.

  • What govt hasn’t declassified: In defence archives, book that suggests Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose survived Taipei crash

    The official stand of the government and the findings of at least two commissions may be that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose died in the Taipei plane crash in 1945, but a book commissioned by the government, which has remained with the Ministry of Defence’s historical division since 1953, gives the impression that he escaped alive from the crash. Despite the political rush to declassify Netaji files – the Centre has so far declassified 175 files and the West Bengal government 64 — the MoD has thwarted all means including RTI applications and court orders to reveal the contents of the book, A History of the Indian National Army 1942-45, written by historian Praful Chandra Gupta at the behest of the central government. In a note signed by Gautam Bambawale, joint secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs, on June 22, 2011, the ministry said publication is unlikely to impinge on or affect Indian’s relations with any country more than 60 years later, so there is no objection to the draft volume on that count.

Dr. Swamy was very clear despite many attempts at persuasion that he will only come for a one on one interview and will not be part of a panel discussion. So we decided to have him at the top of the show for 10 minutes. He can say his piece and then our panel of experts can put his claims through a fact-check.
