Speaking on a seminar on communal amity, Vice-President of India, Hamid Ansari said the following: ‘article 21 of the Constitution provides for right to life and it was the responsibility of not only the government but people as well to ensure that every Indian is secure. “We have our own religious books, but as a citizen, the constitution is one religious book.

The Undoing Of The Idea Of India

By Suhail Qasim Mir

The lynching of Mohammad Akhlaq and brutally beating up his son, Danish by a mob in Dadri, UP for allegedly consuming and storing beef marks the travesty of the democratic and non-violent credentials of India. The culture of tolerance and secularism, which India is boastful about, is fast eroding. When endeavours are being made all over the world to embark new journeys towards peace and reconciliation, India seems to be moving back into history.

By Indian Writers Forum

Romila Thapar, at the launch of the two websites of the Indian Writers' Forum Trust, speaks on the recent attempts at the rewriting of history to suit the purposes of a Hindu India. The proponents of this theory claim that history must not only be rewritten, but corrected – a more dangerous proposition than rewriting.
