Institutional nephews

I have been following Kangana Ranaut with a mixture of fascination and admiration ever since she showed the extraordinary courage of taking on the bigwigs in Bollywood by attacking the source of their power—nepotism.

I was born a bad person and my fellow savarnas, so were you all

I was born a bad person and my fellow savarnas, so were you all

I was born a bania, a savarna or upper-caste, and that is why I was born a bad person. Let me explain.

(IL)Logic in the service of prejudice: Why the blame on Tablighi Jamaat with the use of wrong math? 

CO-Written by Akshat Jain & Divij Oberoi In the great ancient tradition of our country (bharat ki mahan aur pracheen sanskriti), we have yet again decided to start a witch-hunt against the members of a minority community.

Islamophobia is a harmful misnomer for anti-Islamism

Islamophobia is a harmful misnomer for anti-Islamism

There is no such thing as Islamophobia. There is only anti-Islamism. A Hindu, Christian, or secular liberal does not have a mental illness that makes them afraid of Muslims, they are against Islam as a political ideology and value system.
