Do we need to relook at the terror laws or is it the need of the hour?

Approximately 60,000 people a year are quizzed under Schedule 7. Schedule 7 does not define closely enough the circumstances under which the authorities could seize journalistic material, contradicting Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides the right to freedom of expression. the powers contained in schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000 were flawed. It allows travellers to be questioned to find out whether they appear to be terrorists. They have no right to remain silent or receive legal advice and they may be detained for up to six hours.

To all the "Liberals" who feel issues at Kashmir and Balochistan are the same, get your facts correct please!

While Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Gilgit-Baltistan are claimed by India, there is no claim on Balochistan. Raising Balochistan, then, is more akin to Pakistan raising, say, government action in Maoist areas or in Nagaland or Manipur.
By mentioning the three — PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan and Balochistan — in the same breath, the Prime Minister also does a disservice to India’s own case for Kashmir, a case made stronger by the fact that India has preserved Kashmir’s demographics and landholding through Article 370. In contrast, Pakistan has not only repopulated many parts of PoK, it hived off Gilgit-Baltistan by giving it quasi-provincial and self-governance powers with an executive order in 2009.

With social media roaring about Indians qualifying/participating in Olympics, it is because of lack of will and cash that India wins so few Olympic medals

Rohit pande had posted

Its almost 1/5th of humanity is not participating in the Olympics. Is it the race or sports politics or is it the craze of cricket to blame ?

China's relationship with UK 'at risk' over Hinkley Point delay

Stella had posted

How about investing the Hinkley money in other, far less expensive reactors like the Westinghouse AP1000. Or, if you want to invest in longer term, more speculative thing
