The editorial in Organiser, ‘Respond Beyond Rhetoric’, comments on the “ghastly attack on pilgrims of Amarnath Yatra”. “Though there was an intelligence input and a mock drill had been conducted in Pahalgam,” it notes, “terrorists managed to display their (one) upmanship again”.

 

We do not need foreigners to confirm that Narendra Modi remains very popular. The results from Uttar Pradesh confirmed this already.

 

After 7 pilgrims were killed and several injured in the first terrorist attack on the Amarnath yatra in over a decade, Nirmal Singh, deputy chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir spoke to Rohit E David on questions being raised on security lapses, the political fallout of the terror attacks and how local Kashmiris from across the religious and political divide came together to condemn the violence.

 

The new president of India will be a Dalit, but not an Ambedkarite. That was also the case when K.R. Narayanan was elected head of state in 1997.

 

The first terror attack on Amarnath yatris in 17 years is an act of desperation by terrorists seeking to communalise the Kashmir Valley and the country after losing several men to security forces.

 

India will ring in its 70th anniversary of independence as a modern nation-state that frequently makes global news for medieval lynchings and a rape culture.

 

Twenty years ago, on the 17th of this month, India elected Kocheril Raman Narayanan its President, the 10th in the line that had been inaugurated by Rajendra Prasad in 1950.

 

It has arrived finally, the moment of reckoning for the ministry of External Affairs, as fate sheds its veils on 39 Indians abducted by the Islamic State (IS) terror organisation in or around Mosul, in Iraq, in June 2014.

 

The terror attack that killed seven Amarnath shrine pilgrims is a deadly reminder of how fragile peace is in Kashmir.

 

In a response to a 2015 petition filed by one Satyaprakash, who wanted mandatory voting to be enforced in India, the NDA government told the Supreme Court last week that exercising one’s franchise is the fundamental right of every citizen but not a duty.

History is told by the victors but in our modern age, even contemporary events get - or are given - a slant, where some contributors soon get eclipsed from the narrative or their images tarnished.
