The new abnormal  in  Kashmir

Use of force and curtailment of freedoms of people will increase alienation of the people form the state. If Nationalism gets fuelled in to the same it is a path to violence. 

Armed forces special powers act, public safety act, section 144 of cr p c are all restrictions on civil liberties and instruments of repression.

 

States refusal to engage is further worsening the situation. It is been clear beyond the point that the current unrest in Kashmir is home grown and it need to be acknowledged. Government shall initiate unconditional talks with all concerned.

 

Vajpayeesinsaniyat, Kashmiriat, jamhooriat’ is a way forward.

 

Conformist nature of public opinion in matters related to Kashmir do not help.

 

Refugees

Notes

  1. India do not have a national asylum policy. All the decisions are taken case on case basis.
  2. India is not a signatory to UN convention on refugees, 1951
  3. Attitude of the communities world wide is generally repulsive to the refugees, India is not an exception.
  4. Fears of demographic change alienates the state Governments form taking a supportive action for the refugees.
  5. Security concerns are also expressed by certain states.

Chakmas in tripura, rohingyas form Myanmar, tibetans, Afghans are the various refugee groups settled in india. They do not have basic amenities, health and education, identity documents for making a livelihood.

Way forward

  1. Social sensitisation remains key
  2. National asylum policy
  3. Registration and documentation of refugees.

Issue

  2. Kyoto seconds commitment period
  3. Loss and damage

 

Rohingya - No  country for the Rohingyas

 

Who are the Rohingya?

The Rohingya are often said to be the world s most persecuted minority. They are an ethnic Muslim group in the majority Buddhist country and make up around one million of the total 50 million population.

They hail from the country s northwest and speak a Bengali dialect. Almost all live in Rakhine, one of the poorest states, with a population of three million.

About 140,000 Rohingya in the Rakhine state live in ghetto-like camps that they can t leave without government permission.

 

 

They are not regarded as one of the country s 135 official ethnic groups and are denied citizenship under Myanmar s 1982 Citizenship Law, which effectively renders them stateless.

To get citizenship, they need to prove they have lived in Myanmar for 60 years, but paperwork is often unavailable or denied to them. As a result, their rights to study, work, travel, marry, practise their religion and access health services are restricted.

 

Myanmar s government views the estimated 1.3 million Rohingya - living in dire, segregated conditions in western Rakhine state - not as citizens, but as illegal migrants from Bangladesh encroaching on scarce land. For that reason, they say the Rohingya ethnicity does not exist.

 

Indian Express

Demonetisation

Europe demonetisation effort is very much different from Indian exercise. 500 euro note is demonetised over span of 2 years and it can be exchanged in banks for ever. On other side Indian demonetisation effort is sudden with limitations on with drawl and deadlines on the time available for exchange of notes.

 

Sharia banking

Fundamental principle of sharia banking is rejection of any interest payments or receivables from money. Added to this, money shall not be used for immoral activities.

 

NeHA – national E health Authority. – it will oversee the digitisation of health information and it could launch a digital health revolution in India. But safeguards need to be put in place to protect patients privacy.
