Rein in fringe elements that are dividing society

Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 | Azhar A Khan | Rampur

This refers to the editorial, “A communal cauldron” (October 5). Safety and security of the minority community rest not only with the ruling dispensation, but also with the majority community.

Sustainable India

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Major step for clean air” (October 5).

By committing to reduce emissions, incorporating a larger share of renewable energy...

Taking advantage

Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 | Abhi | Via web

Sir — This refers to the article, “Small is beautiful, for minorities too” (October 5) by RK Sinha. The practice of cheating and misleading the Muslims for vote-bank politics must stop. Instead, the community should be told how high population growth is eating into our national resources.

Linking Aadhar

Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 | TKM Kumbalamchuvattil | Muvattupuzha

Sir — This refers to the report, “Aadhar-linked social benefits swell coffers” (October 4).

Countering terror

Tuesday, 06 Oct 2015 | Nimai Charan Swain | Bhubaneswar

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Sharif’s desperate moves” (October 2).

It’s in Pakistan's interest to develop friendly ties

Monday, 05 Oct 2015 | Bal Govind | Noida

This refers to the editorial, “Pakistan shamed at UN” (October 3). It was heartening to see External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj speak at the UN General Assembly.

Political race

Monday, 05 Oct 2015 | G David Milton | Maruthancode

Both the fronts, the Nitish Kumar-led grand alliance and the BJP-led NDA, appear to be evenly matched in the electoral battle in Bihar. In the absence of a Modi wave, nobody can predict the outcome of the tight race. On the one hand, the theatrics of Prime Minister Narendra Modi...

Talking peace

Monday, 05 Oct 2015 | Ganapathi Bhat | Akola

This refers to the editorial, “Pakistan shamed at UN” (October 3). India’s frontal attack on Pakistan at the UN General Assembly is a welcome departure from its jaded ‘wait and watch’ policy. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj sent a clear message to Pakistan: Terror and talks cannot go hand in...

State responsibility

Saturday, 03 Oct 2015 | AS Narayanan | Via web

The horrific killing of Mohammed Akhlaq over beef rumours should be condemned by all. But the anti-BJP, anti-Modi zealots will do well to remember that law and order is a State subject. If these zealots hold Mr Narendra Modi responsible for the 2002 post-Godhra violence because he was the Chief...

We need to rise above these kinds of incidents (Dadri lynching) because they don't give a good name to the country.
