Bringing back the murder charge on all the 12 accused in the Tabrez Ansari lynching case by Jharkhand police — after dropping it based on the same medical reports — shows a broken and insincere state prosecution system. The state needs to urgently restore faith in its police and criminal justice authorities.

Pakistan denying air space for PM Modi’s flight for his upcoming visit to the United States because of “the current situation in Kashmir” smacks of churlishness. It’s not going to turn the clock back on abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir and only ends up adding more bitterness to ties.

  1. As someone who believes better relations between the two countries are both desirable and possible, feel dismayed that even the most slender bonds are being snipped off. Closing down the two embassies is a natural progression.Have limited my prayers to hoping that we do not go to war. Will send a special note of appreciation to some channels if that eventuality comes to pass.

  2. Manslaughter and murder, the difference can be academic. All the more since most death sentences are commuted to life imprisonment in appeal. Hardly any executions are carried out. What is dispiriting, however, is the message that goes out, both to potential lynchers and the official machinery, that Muslims done to death in hate crimes, whether with or without the holy cow present, are part of a new normal. No longer shock the conscience. Not even worthy of extensive media coverage. That is what civil society needs to work on reversing. Respects to those media professionals whose reporting restored the murder charge.
