The report Pakistan court frees Lashkar founder Saeed (August 4) has reaffirmed that Pakistan is in no mood to assist India on the issue of terrorism. Its so-called war against terrorism is just an illusion to appease the international community. The Zardari government is neither inclined towards dismantling terror camps in Pakistan nor is it bothered about the dialogue process with India.

Going against themselves
It is deplorable that Rajya Sabha MPs are opposing the bill pertaining to the declaration of assets by judges (Govt mulls all-party meet on judges’ bill, August 5). Our lawmakers and law-keepers should understand that this will only tarnish their public image. People are slowly losing faith in the judiciary, especially after the Chief Justice of India admitted on record that corruption prevails in the judicial system.

No sportsman spirit, this
It appears that the BCCI and the Indian cricket team don’t want the sport to be free from the problem of doping. It’s disappointing that when almost every international-level sportsperson and sports body has agreed to sign up with the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada), our cricketers are trying to steer clear of it. The BCCI is encouraging indiscipline by negating Wada and proposing unintelligent alternatives.

EC does a good job
The report Poll panel pulls up Maya over statues (August 5) comes as a welcome surprise, especially after the Supreme Court had declined to interfere in the issue. The Election Commission has rightly voiced its concern over the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati’s attempts to squander public money to gain political leverage.
