      + Statement by Concerned Christians on UN Panel on
      Accountability in Sri Lanka
      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


      the Sri Lankan government and the UNSG is not
      allowing us, Sri Lankan citizens to read the full
      report that deals with a critical and tragic part
      of our history. We are disappointed that after
      almost two weeks, and after several promises being
      made, the UNSG had not extended the same courtesy

      members of the Department of English, dated April
      15, 2011, to be notices issued each one of us.
      These notices, absurdly invoking Ordinance18 and
      the High Court Order in the Kalindi College case,

      THOSE who believe on either side of the
      India-Pakistan equation that Kashmir is a Muslim
      entity are sadly missing out on the contribution
      of Kashmiri Pandits to the limitless enrichment of
      the subcontinent's secular culture, chiefly of
      the Urdu language and the aadaab-i-majaalis,
      social (...)

      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


      It has been and is my biggest relief to be among
      people who are sane enough to be against this
      practice of subjugating women through veil. But
      finding so many friends and fellow rights’
      activists among those protesting France’s ban on
      Burqa is shocking and disappointing both. The
      anti-ban crowd (...)

      Confronted with the intractable problems that the
      messy but occasionally creative world of democracy
      brings with it, some civil society organisations
      prefer to substitute democracy with
      administration. Establish a Jan Lokpal, endow it
      with colossal power, bestow on it the status of a
      Leviathan, (...)

      the politically conscious and democratically
      oriented sections of society, especially the
      women's rights organisations, need to realise
      that protection of women's rights is hardly a

      The grave nuclear crisis in Japan has highlighted
      the issue of safety in atomic installations the
