The Government should realise that the RTI Act is an effective shield against corruption and inefficiency (Telling tales, August 29). As opined, if all five members of the CIC were to hear the appeal together, its working would come to a standstill.

Colleges in rags

The murder of a professor in Ujjain is a reflection of the extent of politicisation of our centres of higher learning, which were once regarded as the best in the world. The incident must be condemned and the guilty punished. It is time to review whether politics should be allowed any space on our campuses.

Listen to reason

This refers to the report Govt's slip-road legislations under SC watch (August 31). The little discipline attempted to be imposed by our apex court on public life should not be allowed to be nullified by legislative bodies.

Pakistan's malaise

Nawab Akhtar Bugti's killing reflects the deeper malaise of ultra-nationalism that has afflicted Pakistan ever since its birth. Anyone who disagrees with the military's Islamist ideology is termed anti-national.


Dangerous liaisons

It is sad that no attempts are being made to make a distinction between the Muslim community and jehadi terrorists. This is leading to a disturbing tendency to view the Muslim community as a whole with suspicion. If not stemmed, it will lead to an irreparable divide between Muslims and non-Muslims. On the other side of the coin, it is also the Muslim leaders' failure to effectively condemn terrorism and their tendency to rationalise and find justification for these nefarious acts that is making even right-minded people look upon them with suspicion.
