    Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti Slapped With PSA: Violation Of Democracy Or Essential For 'Normalcy'?

    Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have been slapped with the stringent Public Safety Act which means the two former Chief Ministers can be detained for an extended period of time. On The Big Fight, we ask by slapping the stringent Public Safety Act against Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, is the centre guaranteeing normalcy in the state or is this, in fact, a violation of democracy in Jammu and Kashmir? NDTV spoke exclusively to the daughter of Mehbooba Mufti, Iltija on the latest move by the government on the three former chief ministers of J&K.

    Centre Drunk On Power, Says Mehbooba Mufti's Daughter On PSA Charges

    "Statements attributed to Omar Abdullah by the PM were never said, they have been taken straight from a fake news website. I find it alarming that when PM decides to talk about the issue on the floor of the parliament after six months, he decides to portray all three ex-Chief Ministers as anti-nationals. This is the same Mehbooba Mufti that the BJP had an alliance with. BJP had no issues with her stand when they wanted power in Jammu and Kashmir and today all of a sudden they wake up and they realise she was against abrogation of Article 370?", says Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija.

    Republic At 70: Is India's Democracy In Danger?

    Over the last few months, beginning with the government's actions in Kashmir to the CAA, now India's democratic credentials are being questioned. This week, India slipped 10 places on a key world democracy index and The Economist has a cover story on India 'intolerant', while billionaire George Soros has made scathing comments on what he says is India becoming a Hindu nationalist state. The BJP may say it doesn't care what foreign publications write but they go out of their way to highlight positive coverage and the Prime Minister himself has written editorial pieces for the New York times which has been extremely critical of his government recently. On The Big Fight, we ask: Is India's democracy really in danger?

    Crackdown On Dissent: Democracy In Descent?

    Crackdown On Dissent: Democracy In Descent?

    For more than a month now we have seen protests across India against the CAA and the NRC. Some of these protests began violently but most settled down into peaceful demonstrations, some have been hijacked by the political opposition, but what has been remarkable about many of them has been the lack of a leader, and the participation of women, of students, of ordinary people reading out the preamble to the Constitution reminding those who have forgotten what India really stands for. The Prime Minister talks about India's democracy - he said the Indian way of conflict avoidance is not by brute force but the power of dialogue, but where is his dialogue with the students who don't agree with his government?
