'The most significant consequence of the Burhan Wani killing can be the emergence of more Burhans.'With 34 deaths so far, it has been six days of turmoil in the Kashmir Valley after violence erupted in the aftermath of Hizbul 'commander' Burhan Wani's death in a firefight with security forces. Siddiq Wahid is a political historian and activist. He was also the founding vice-chancellor of the Islamic University of Science and Technology in Kashmir. In an e-mail interaction with Rediff.com's Archana Masih, Professor Wahid says the parties to the dispute are suffering not because of any collective prejudice or bigotry between peoples, but because their political establishments do not have the political will to address the historical foibles, legal convolutions and political prejudices that inform the J&K dispute.

The immediate need, of course, is for the security forces to do what their … [Read more...] about ‘Rest of India needs to listen to what the Kashmiris have to say’

Mr Nelson, who ends his term as director of the memorial this year, made the comments while unveiling plans for the memorial’s redevelopment with Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the ABC reports. He also defended the $500 million price tag during his speech on Monday. He said the government already spent $60 million per day defending and maintaining defence equipment. “Our responsibility to tell their stories, tell them now and proudly, is no less than the decisions to send them on operations in the first place,” Dr Nelson said.

A middle-aged man, carrying a plastic bag, that said Mamta Tailors on it, was walking swiftly along the ocean promenade at Carter Road, Khar, north west Mumbai, at about 9 pm. In his pocket, or maybe in his hand, was a silver/white cellphone and Rs 100. He was probably slightly out of breath, or even sweating, given that he had been walking about 40 minutes or much more, all the way from Santa Cruz East, north west Mumbai. By the side of the road were clumps of water-logged shrubs, perhaps mangroves. The moustachioed man was headed to this jhar (greenery) to dump his plastic bag.

The police, suspicious of a man racing away, came after him and nabbed him. When they opened the Mamta Tailors bag they … [Read more...] about Sheena Bora Trial: Were the driver’s call records tampered with?
