they are assumed to be loyal to Pakistan (absurd as they opted to stay in India); their population is said to be growing faster because they are polygamous — members of the Sangh Parivar argue that one day Muslims may outnumber Hindus (wild conjecture) — they are accused of being cow killers and so on Right after taking office Yogi Adityanath clamped down on “illegal abattoirs” in UP This is an attack on the sources of livelihoods of Muslims — most abattoirs are owned by Muslims though a large majority of wholesale traders of beef are Hindus The education system is being tampered with and India’s history is sought to be rewritten Progressive inclinations and dissenting voices are opposed — that explains the attack on JNU the best Indian university even by the standards of the Human Resource Development Ministry itself Hinduism is different from Hindutva It is not only a religious belief system but also a civilisation that evolved over time Despite all its infirmities such as the ignominious caste system untouchability and the subjugation of women Hinduism has been the single major component of India’s culture and civilisation for almost 5000 years Indian civilisation could adapt to modern challenges because of its ability to churn out mutually conflicting worldviews The internalisation of democratic values by the people of India can be ascribed to such a “composite” culture Nehru made strenuous efforts to make this composite culture the foundation of inclusive development One can debate its achievements but it is hard to challenge the core philosophy of modern India Hindutva is the antithesis of Hinduism It threatens the foundations of inclusive India It’s time for every Indian to introspect and choose between “Hindutva” and “development” The writer is former member of the Rajya Sabha and Planning Commission For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: July 26 2016 4:36 pm During her illustrious career Ghose had served in a number of positions including in Indian Missions in Austria the Netherlands Bangladesh South Korea and Egypt(Source: Reuters photo) Top News Eminent diplomat Arundhati Ghose who was India’s ambassador to the UN and played a decisive role in India’s negotiations on Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) passed away late on Tuesdaynight at the age of 76 She was suffering from cancer and breathed her last at around 12:30 am at her residence in Palam Vihar in West Delhi a family member said During her illustrious career Ghose had served in a number of positions including in Indian Missions in Austria the Netherlands Bangladesh South Korea and Egypt She was also the first Indian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Offices in Geneva Ghose was head of Indian delegation to the conference on the CTBT in Geneva in 1996 and she is hailed for strongly outlining India’s position in opposing the treaty At the conference she had talked about the “discriminatory” treaty and famously said “India will not sign this unequal treaty Not now not ever” Vice President Hamid Ansari condoling the passing away of Ghose said she will be remembered for her services to thenation including for her role as head of the Indian delegation at the CTBT negotiations Ghose who was born on November 25 1939 is from a prominent Bengali family and grew up in Mumbai She graduated from Lady Brabourne College in Kolkata and went on to study at Visva-Bharati University in Shantiniketan before joining the Indian Foreign Service in 1963 She is sister of Bhaskar Ghose former chairman of Prasar Bharati Ghose aunt of Sanjay Ghose a social worker who was abducted and killed by ULFA militants in Assam in 1997 Ghose had retired from diplomatic services in November 1997 She was a Member of the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) from 1998 to 2004 Ghose was also a member of the UN Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters from 1998 to 2001 She was also a member of Task Force on non-proliferation and Disarmament set up by the Ministry of External Affairs in 2007 For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top News In 2010, which had announced its support for Kumar.457.
