Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 30Aug 17,Privacy vs Aadhaar
The recent verdict on the Aadhaar card from the Indian Supreme Court was a landmark judgment and a great relief for billions of Indians (“Ruling a blow to the government”, Gulf News, August 25). Before introducing this, the previous government thought of the privacy of the people. Despite the extension dates, many have still not received this card. Privacy should be preserved and that is the fundamental right of every Indian citizen.

Letter Published in KhaleejTimes UAE on 28 Aug 17,Condemn the violence
Filed on August 27, 2017 | Last updated on August 27, 2017 at 10.39 pm

The recent protests in the Indian state of Haryana by Ram Rahim's followers have led to the death of 31 people. This is unacceptable. Protesters should do it peacefully and not loot public property and kill innocent people. In India, people blindly follow politicians, actors and fake gurus. As an Indian citizen, I strongly condemn the looting of public property. A sad state of affairs.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on  28 Aug 17Some hope for gender equality
The Supreme Court’s verdict against the triple talaq is favourable to Muslim women and is not only a dramatic development, but also a hope for gender equality (“Petitioners: The women behind India’s instance divorce verdict”, Gulf News, August 23). This is mainly due to five women petitioners who turned the future of Muslim women around. It shows that women should be respected and given equal importance.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 25Aug 17,Train tragedy
This was a tragic accident and in recent months, I feel many similar ones have occurred. The reason for this is yet to be known, however we can assume that poor maintenance is the main reason. The railway authorities should pay attention to this issue, and the person responsible should not be spared. Passengers’ safety is important and that should be the utmost priority of the railway administration. I pray for the victims and those injured.

Letter Published in KhaleejTimes UAE on 24 Aug 17 ,Ban on instant divorce in India  The recent verdict of India's Supreme Court on the triple talaq (India's top court bans instant divorce, August 23) is commendable. It not only is a landmark judgement in favour of the Muslim women, but also addresses the issues of gender equality. It shows women should be respected and given equal importance. - K Ragavan, Bengaluru

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 24Aug 17  Sad news
It was disheartening to read that Spain was hit by a second car rampage, after the first attack killed 13 (“Suspects killed in second Spain attack”, Gulf News, August 19). The brutal attack by terrorists is highly condemned. Today, the entire globe is witnessing terror attacks and this is unacceptable. It is time the international community joined hands and eradicated this menace. Will they come together and make people’s safety a priority?

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 23Aug 17,Stop political corruption
I have been watching India’s politics for five decades (“Inquiry ordered into Jayalalitha’s death, merger chances brighten”, Gulf News, August 17). My observation is that whoever comes to power does not serve the people, despite the promises they make before the elections. The recent developments in Indian politics are not healthy. Tamil Nadu is facing tough times. After the demise of the late Chief Minister Jayaram Jayalalitha, the party has divided into three factions and everyone is claiming their eligibility to rule. Their party symbol is also under threat from the election commission. To get their famous two leaf symbol back, the factions have to merge together and prove they are one. Today, corruption and nepotism are more visible in Indian politics. People should think and choose good governance with a full majority. By adopting this method, political parties and their numbers game will be eradicated, and clean administration will replace it. Will the people select an honourable party for the sake of development and prosperity?

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 22Aug 17,Censoring the chairperson
The Central Board of Film Certification’s chairperson, Pahlaj Nihalani, was sacked, and this is welcome news for Indian film producers and directors (“Indian censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani fired”, Gulf News, August 12). His adamant attitude towards dialogues in films may be the root cause for the sacking, by higher authorities. The award winning, Prasoon Joshi, may deliver better and make the film fraternity happy. Good luck to Joshi.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 17Aug 17,Action  needed    It  was sad to read about the deaths of those 60 children in India. The reason is unacceptable. The government should investigate this and find out the real cause, whether it was due to an oxygen shortage or the lack of cooperation from the doctors. The guilty should not be spared. Safety for the patients and proper medical facilities including emergency items, like liquid oxygen, should be made available, always. Hope Uttar Pradesh, under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, should take up this issue.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 2Aug 17,An admirable resignation
The recent development in the Indian state Bihar, the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s resignation made a turning point in Indian politics (‘Nitish wins trust vote, opposition cries foul’, Gulf News, July 30). Just because of his deputy chief minister’s corruption allegations and no proper decision taken by him, Kumar has to take his decision to quit, because of his principles against corruption. Since his alliance, Congress’ high command has not taken action against the deputy chief minister, so Kumar taking this decision is highly admirable. In politics, one should be sincere without corrupt practices and Kumar is known for that. With this development now the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA)-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government will join him to continue the state for development without corruption. This development may bring Bihar and the future a new model for a corruption-free state.
