Musings on the politics of identity in a democracy

Speaking the truth, fighting for my ideology

We are working on survival of our ideology. The day we give up on ideology, it will no longer matter that we survive

Is there is only one kind of voter, the one who prefers the BJP to the Congress? But the 70% who do not vote for that party should matter, or not? (HTPhoto)

Leaderless and voiceless: A lament for the Indian Muslim

For Indian Muslims, co-existence, not confrontation, is the answer for survival and prosperity. People who demonise Islam to serve their personal agenda are no better than those who use it to perpetuate everything that it opposes in its true, sublime form.

It is shocking to read some people who were regular and prominent faces at ‘Liberal’ feasts today seeking a chance for Yogi Adityanath on the development plank.(AP)
