Army chief General Bipin Rawat is completely out of line in criticising student protests against CAA and NRC. He is factually wrong, too. The protests were spontaneous and leaderless. Men in uniform need to be neutral in deed and word. A politicised military isn’t even the last thing India needs.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
