LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). It has rightly said that Rita Bahuguna Joshi's exit from the Congress may not impact the Congress’s prospects in the ensuing Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh. However, it will certainly benefit the BJP which is already in an upbeat mode,...
Sir — This refers to the article, “Confronting an isolationist mindset” (October 24) by Ravi Sharma. The lack of a uniform civil code has created a ‘nation-within-a-nation’ syndrome in the country. The sooner India gets rid of it, the better it will be.
Sir — This refers to the article, “Confronting an isolationist mindset” (October 24) by Ravi Sharma. The Muslim community’s strong opposition to a common civil code, enshrined in the Directive Principles of State Policy in the Constitution, as also the revoking of triple talaq, Nikah halala and polygamy, are...
Sir — This refers to the article, “No-skin-in-the-game nationalism in obverse” (October 22) by Ashok Malik. Pakistani artistes should be banned from working in films here not because they are Pakistanis, but because of their attitude towards India. However, will sending Pakistani artistes back, stop playing cricket and barring trade and...

This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). After a long association with the Congress, Rita Bahuguna Joshi finally parted ways and joined the BJP.

Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). Perhaps the strategy, purportedly laid by election strategist Prashant Kishor, has led to the first major casualty. In her exit, Rita Bahuguna Joshi exposed the fragile underbelly of the Congress in India’s most populous State. A cursory look at...
Sir — This refers to the editorial, “Rahul Gandhi’s failures” (October 22). Of late, many senior leaders from the Congress have quit the party and joined the BJP. The latest among them is former Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi. Perhaps it’s time that the grand old party introspects...
Sir — This refers to the article, “No-skin-in-the-game nationalism in obverse” (October 22) by Ashok Malik. I don’t think the Government ever said that it will put a blanket ban on Pakistani artistes. In fact, it was the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena which said that it would not allow Karan Johar’s...
Sir — This refers to the article, “Back to religious passion to gain votes” (October 21) by Kalyani Shankar. I concur with the author’s views that the multi-crore futuristic Ramayan museum project for Ayodhya, announced by the Centre, has come across as an ace political card that has ruffled ...
