Kashmir & NRC aren’t the Muslim issues of our time. But Mahmood Madani wants to make them

Muslims seem to make a very clear distinction between religious concerns and political matters.

A Gujarat gamble: A likely reason Rahul is not giving Modi a fight this assembly election

I'd rather not buy idea that Rahul's holding his fire until 2024. More likely, Congress believes Karnataka offers best chance of winning a Gujarat-sized state if Gujarat is too challenging.
