  • No more 'calmly sailing by', not after what happened in Kathua

    Who among us today, if we were born Hindu, does not have at least one relative or acquaintance who hates Muslims? Who among us does not have friends—men and women thought to be moral and humane—that have closed their eyes to the brutal amorality of the ruling regime, seeing it instead as the political road to India's salvation? Will they be able to carry on unchanged even now, after the people they voted in have sprung to the defence of the rapists and murderers of an eight-year-old? Will they fail even now to see that a girl of that age is neither Hindu nor Muslim but only a child?
