बिजनौर मामले में हिंदूवादी संगठनों के साथ 'दैनिक जागरण' भड़का रहा है आग

पत्रकारिता के बुनियादी प्रशिक्षण में जब ख़बर लिखना सिखाया जाता है तो किसी घटना के संदर्भ में धार्मिक समुदायों का नाम लेने को मना किया जाता है. मसलन, किसी साम्‍प्रदायिक दंगे की ख़बर में यह नहीं लिखा जाना होता है कि समुदाय कौन से थे, बल्कि इतना भर लिखा जाता है कि दो समुदायों के बीच दंगा हुआ. ऐसा इसलिए करते हैं ताकि पाठकों के बीच नफ़रत न फैलने पाए और एक-दूसरे समुदायों के बीच स्थिति और तनावपूर्ण न होने पाए.

Failure of governance - from Kashmir to Karnataka

By Amulya Ganguli

Be it Kashmir or Karnataka, poor governance has been responsible for making a bad situation worse.

Such administrative lapses are true of minor incidents of lawlessness as well like the antics of the "gau rakshaks" or the cow vigilantes, who have been running amok from Mewat in Haryana to Bengaluru in Karnataka.

Similarly, the inept rulers have let down Delhi at a time of dengue and chikungunya outbreaks.

This is a first in a three-part series on how Birsa Ambedkar Phule Students Organisation (BAPSA) has, while effectively countering Savarna politics espoused by the Hindu Savarnas, accepted support and help from Students Islamic Organisation (SIO), the student organisation of Jamaat-e-Islami, an organisation that can be termed casteist, patriarchal and sectarian. Khalid Anis Ansari, Assistant Professor (Sociology) in Glocal Law School, Glocal University (India), explains why this must be questioned too.

Alliance on the rocks, Kashmir may be heading for Governor's Rule

By Sanjeev Srivastava

With the Peoples Democratic Party's Srinagar MP Tariq Hameed Karra quitting the party as well as his Lok Sabha seat, the countdown may well have begun for the PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir.

The coming together of the PDP-BJP in February last year was like an inter-community, inter-caste and inter-religious marriage which was not exactly fawned upon by the elders and hardliners on either side, but compulsions of realpolitik and an element of romantic optimism solemnised a union of opposites amidst much hype and fanfare.

India to miss target for universal upper-secondary education by 50 Years

By Silvio Grocchetti and Charlie Moloney

India will not have universal upper secondary education (covering the age group 14-17 years and 9th to 12th standard) till 2085, over half a century late, according to the Global Education Monitoring Report 2016 by Unesco.

By Mohammed Kashif Yunus for

If you go through the advertisement, cut outs, hoardings and pamphlets of Peace Party of India, you will find that in 90% of these displays, there is only one photograph on it: that of its National President Dr Ayub.

Sharad Pawar’s support to Muslim youth wrongly implicated in terror cases reeks of opportunism

By Masood Peshinam for

A politician knows the value of speaking the truth: at least when it gives immense political benefits. Political narratives are fashioned depending on the exigencies of the situation.

The virtue of necessity does not turn it into a vice, as demonstrated by NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar.
