LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
This refers to the editorial, “Watching over Dawood” (August 25). For several years, India has been crying from rooftops that it's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim lives in Pakistan right under the nose of the Pakistani establishment. The UN committee's endorsement of this fact only adds credence to India's claim....
This refers to the editorial, “The jostle for justice” (August 25). It is painful that budding wrestler Narsingh Yadav has been slapped with a four-year ban by Court Of Arbitration For Sports for using banned substances. Even if any or all of the three top sporting bodies are held responsible...
This refers to the article, “Depleted arsenal, hollow threat” by Pravin Sawhney (August 25). After years of projecting itself as a weak and meek nation, India is now adopting a somewhat aggressive posture — this the writer criticises as a “confrontationist pitch” and nearly blames the Indian leadership...
This refers to the editorial, “ULFA abduction horror” (August 24). The insurgency in the North-East continues much to the chagrin of the common man.

There is no doubt that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for an immediate dialogue to restore peace in Jammu & Kashmir within “the ambit of the Constitution”, made at his meeting with Kashmir’s opposition leaders led by...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “RBI under Urjit Patel” (August 23). Urjit Patel will be taking over India’s central bank at a critical juncture. His predecessor, the incumbent RBI chief Raghuram Rajan, has already institutionalised many reforms and stiff measures for which he had to take a lot...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “RBI under Urjit Patel” (August 23). RBI chief Raghuram Rajan has succeeded to a large extent in defending his legacy. By ushering significant economic reforms at a time when the country found itself struggling with double digit inflation, a volatile rupee, falling forex...
This refers to the article, “Balochistan: Pakistan's dark underbelly” (August 23) by Sandhya Jain. The writer ought to realise that a few speeches here and there is scarcely going to make a difference to jihadis sitting in the Pakistani Army headquarters. Having struck while the iron was hot, from the...

If you kill the dog, females will breed more. Dogs will also come from outside. I’m with the people of Kerala, but if you keep killing dogs, you do things that do not work.
Sufi saints were given birth by women. Then why we are barred (from entering the inner area of Haji Ali dargah)?
