We are passing through a very challenging period. On 5th August the parliament abrogated Article 370 and reduced the J&K state in to two union territories without going through any form of consultations with the people of the state or their representatives. Military, para military and police forces are deployed everywhere, preventive orders are clamped down and all forms of communications are cut. Many concerned people approached the Supreme Court, which is the authority and has right to give relief to people if the constitutional rights are violated; first group of people challenging the government action on J&K, and second…

On July 30, the Rajya Sabha gave its nod to the controversial Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019. This bill has already been cleared by the Lok Sabha or lower house and now just needs Presidential assent before being formally considered an Act.

The hallmark of postmodern discourse on contemporary political developments in general is its gross disregard of the fundamental and determining dynamics associated with the all-embracing and all-pervasive role of multinational corporate capital and the linkage of both state power and political parties to the crucial question connected with it.

At present, Kerala is confronting a total reversal of all the social reform and ‘renaissance’ values that it…

This is the case of all black laws like TADA, POTA, AFSPA, UAPA etc. The amendments to NIA Amendment Bill also is part of this. When the UPA govt formed NIA (National Investigation Agency) in 2008 it had many anti-people provisions. Now the Modi-2 home minister…
