Modi government is using the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill to needlessly bring back the ghosts of Partition. India has travelled a great distance from 1947. Harking back to it shows a bankruptcy of ideas for 2019. The bill might get parliamentary approval but this isn’t what BJP was voted to deliver.

You also know that the news media is facing an unprecedented crisis. It is likely that you are also hearing of the brutal layoffs and pay-cuts hitting the industry. There are many reasons why the media’s economics is broken. But a big one is that good people are not yet paying enough for good journalism.

This comes with a sizable cost. For us to continue bringing quality journalism, we need readers like you to pay for it.

  1. 2019 is not 1925. The subcontinent and the world have changed immeasurably, unrecognisably. Destiny and the natural talents of one sixth of the human race – which flower so much better amidst the alien corn of Silicon Valley and elsewhere – have created a situation in which the scourge of mass poverty and the many deprivations it brings with it can be eliminated within our lifetimes. Two incredibly precious mandates were meant to create a better India that subserves the needs and interests of all its people. Not excluding 200 million Muslims, for sure. We are steadily moving away from where the United States and the EU – our rock solid friends and partners for the long term – would have wanted to see us.
