Shrine needs care

We were shocked to find that facilities at Vaishno Devi are in a very poor state. The unhygienic conditions need to be improved upon immediately.

Shrine needs care

We were shocked to find that facilities at Vaishno Devi are in a very poor state. The unhygienic conditions need to be improved upon immediately. The shrine board has neglected its duty.

School of thought

Apropos of the report No interviews (May 11), the High Court has rightly asked schools to be transparent about their admission procedures. There is need to bring uniformity in fees too.

Double standards

The Sudden spurt in Pakistan-sponsored terrorism along the LoC and other parts of the country should serve as a warning signal for the troops and security agencies. This, side by side with the much talked of CBMs and ‘people-to-people contact’ as preached by Pakistani leadership, exposes Pakistan’s double standards. Utmost vigil and battle preparedness should be exercised by our troops manning the Indo-Pak border.

Legalising illegality

Union Minister Jaipal Reddy’s argument that the law should be changed ‘if 80 per cent citizens are found to be on its wrong side’, is untenable (Delhi, traders’ fortunes set to turn, May 10). Poor governance is to be blamed for this state of affairs.

Do we infer from his statement that every time the majority follows corrupt practices, the law should be changed?

Art that hurts

MF Husain’s paintings are being defended in the name of freedom of speech and expression (None of your business, May 8). But he does hurt the sentiments of many. If the media continue to defend him, he will continue to make objectionable paintings of gods and goddesses.

Discriminatory laws

Corruption produces inequalities by favouring the bribe-giver (A graft crusade on NHRC radar, May 10). If that is so, is the government right in moving a parliamentary bill to seek a stay on the sealing and demolition drive?
