उत्तर प्रदेश : दलित वोटों का बंटवारा और बसपा का विकल्प

विद्या भूषण रावत

उत्तर प्रदेश में बहुजन और दलितों का नेतृत्व करने वालों की कतार लग गयी है. ये कोई बुरी बात नहीं है क्योंकि लोकतंत्र में ऐसा होगा. पिछड़ी जातियों की भी तमाम पार्टियां बन चुकी हैं और हर एक जाति भी अपनी एक पार्टी बना रही है. समस्या यह नहीं कि जातियां पार्टी बना रही है बल्कि यह कि व्यक्तिगत महत्त्वाकांक्षाएं पार्टियां बनवा रही हैं. इस व्यक्तिगत महत्त्वाकांक्षा को 'समाज' की 'चाहत' का नाम दे दिया जा रहा है.

Are Kashmiris really fighting for a freedom?

By Ibrahim Yousuf for TwoCircles.net

Living in a nation, yet not being called its citizen is a matter of shame. But we must not forget that this is our nation and we Muslims had decided to stay here and not to go to the other side. This nation belongs to us as much as it belongs to other Indians. They are nobody to suggest us to cross the border and we need not to prove our love and loyalty to the country.

Sonia to use 'Ganga' as a weapon in Varanasi to discredit Modi

महाश्वेता देवी : श्रद्धांजलि के साथ राजनीति की चुप्पी

अनिल मिश्र

शोक के वक़्त कोई खटराग शोभा नहीं देता. ख़ामोशी ही सबसे उचित लहज़ा होती है. लेकिन जब जीवन के उत्सव और उसके मूल्यों में भी कुछ लोग आडम्बर का चोला ओढ़ाने लगें तो कोफ़्त को ज़ाहिर करना चाहिए और महाश्वेता देवी दी की जनपक्षधरता का, दोहराव का ख़तरा मोल लेकर भी, बारंबार उल्लेख किया जाना चाहिए. यह उल्लेख, सच्चे लोकतंत्र और राजनीति की अपनी परंपरा और विरासत की दावेदारी का न सिर्फ अहम उत्तरदायित्त्व बन जाता है, बल्कि आने वाली पीढ़ियों को भूलभुलैया की अंधेरी खोह से बचाने के लिए ज़रूरी है.

डॉ. खजान सिंह

हाल ही में दबंगो द्वारा गुजरात के ऊना में दलितों के साथ किए गए अमानवीय व्यवहार ने सारे देश के बहुजनो को हिलाकर रख दिया. वैसे तो देशभर में आए दिन इस प्रकार की घटनाएं देखने-सुनने में आती रहती है. पर इस घटना से एक बात साफ दिखाई देती है कि दबंगो के हौसले कितने बुलंद है कि दलितों की पिटाई सबूत सोशल मीडिया पर वायरल करते है.
