then is a break At the time of writing the civil administration in J&K had received no official intimation of the details of the investigation — or indeed of the sentence Nor is there any need for the army to do so under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) Chapter V of the Code of Criminal Procedure sets out exactly how arrests are to be made which does not give an officer the right to cause death unless there is accusation of an offence punishable by death or life imprisonment This power is already too broad allowing the police to use more force than stipulated in the UN Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials Yet the AFSPA is even more excessive allowing the armed forces to kill even a person who is not suspected of so grave an offence And although it cannot be so construed legally the public has remained convinced that this has allowed the army to overlook killings of the atrocious kind perpetrated in Machil In an article (‘State of transition’ IE November 7) Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain described what he calls the “unfortunate” killing of two young boys and injury to two others in their car as they sped through mobile vehicle check-posts (MVCPs) a few kilometres south of Srinagar without stopping arguing that “for the past few years the situation in J&K has been transiting from a typical public order environment to a law and order one” My own experience and repeated visits to Kashmir and interaction with a cross-section of its people tell me that such “transition” has long since been completed Can we hope that the Machil decision and the decisive response of army HQ in J&K in the latter tragedy — after an initial goof-up when it was claimed that a shot had been fired by a non-existent gun in the Maruti — amounts to a recognition

12:24 am Secularism takes the multi-dimensional interests of the Muslim community (economic political and social) and flattens them by defining the community solely along a religious dimension Related News The Sachar Committee report makes it clear that Muslims in India are less educated poorer and fewer of them can be found in the national and state legislatures and in the bureaucracy Experiential evidence by social science researchers also indicates that Muslims are discriminated against in the job market and have a harder time in the rental market for houses and apartments in Indian cities At the same time the state stresses its secular credentials that is it is equidistant from all religions In our view the use of the word “secular” diverts attention from the real problems faced by the Muslim community Secularism as a rhetorical political tool has done more harm than good in four ways It has flattened the diversity of the Muslim community redefined their interests primarily in terms of religion and privileged the Muslim elite It has also given right-wing Hindus a political tool to mobilise votes by using the empirically questionable rhetoric of a Muslim vote bank Secularism takes the multi-dimensional interests of the Muslim community (economic political and social) and flattens them by defining the community solely along a religious dimension Muslims are seen largely as a religious community rather than as a community that has religious beliefs that are Islamic This has had unintended consequences For the Indian state a citizen belongs to a religious community defined as Hindu Muslim Sikh etc On the ground however these identities can and do overlap For example a study describes a man in his mid-30s living in rural Punjab and belonging to the Gujjar caste who said that his idea of religion stems from what he had learnt at an ashram that follows a largely Hindu tradition He reported that he does not see this as in any way coming into conflict with his Muslim identity The Indian state and its enumerators have no way of addressing this complexity The Census of India also does not delve into the multiple religious practices of most Indians but instead uses blunt categories to ask people what religion they are Caste and its diversities have been accommodated but the same has not been done for religion In the United States for instance there are 67 identifiably different sects of Christianity Some of these exist in India but the census only asks citizens if they are Christians or Muslims For instance we do not know the number of Muslims who are Shias Bohras etc Further for a religion as decentralised as Sunni Islam with its multiple schools of jurisprudence there is little acknowledgement of those differences Citizens are classified on the basis of a large and encompassing group as “Muslim” Similarly the use of the all-encompassing category of “Hindu” is misleading because it hides the diversity within the community The words Muslim and Hindu take on unidimensional characters for another reason According to Ashutosh Varshney the Hindu/ Muslim divide along religious lines is a master narrative of independent India Hindus see Muslims as a religious community first and vice versa The state sees Hindus and Muslims especially the latter as a religious community Consequently the religious elite and religious bodies become guardians of the community’s interests It is the religious elite who for many in the Indian state define and understand Muslim interests The intellectual elite especially those educated in the best Western tradition associated with the Congress or the left often assert that only they the secular can address the problems faced by the Muslim community Secularism reduces the entire set of problems the Muslim community faces to one of the state retaining its “dharm nirpekshita” For them the state must retain its secular credentials for the good of minority Muslims in a predominantly Hindu country While there is some truth to this these policies have privileged Muslim upper castes over others in the community The Congress party that has governed India for most of its post-Independence history has relied upon the support of Muslim elites (and not those who are economically downtrodden) The National Election Study (NES) 2009 by Lokniti-CSDS suggests that in states with sizeable Muslim populations the Congress’s support is largely upper-caste Muslim communities (Figure 1) In Uttar Pradesh and Assam where the party contested the 2009 elections alone its support among upper-caste Muslims was approximately twice that among lower-caste Muslims In states where the Congress had a pre-poll alliance such as with the RJD in Bihar and the TMC in West Bengal it drew less votes from upper-caste Muslims The repeated rhetoric of the secularists of protecting Muslim interests has also given the Hindu right (the BJP and its affiliates) an issue on which to mobilise its ideological extremes Any step to accommodate Muslims economically and socially is projected as an appeasement to woo Muslim votes This has resulted in the construction of a narrative of majoritarian victimisation that is violently manifested in parts of the country The Hindu right also complains of a Muslim vote bank We find this argument hypocritical All over the world it is common for a community to turn out to vote for one political party in larger numbers — for example African Americans and Hispanics vote for the Democrats in the US and immigrant populations in the UK support the Labour Party Upper castes in India have voted as a bloc for the BJP If the upper castes and Dalits can vote en bloc then why can’t Muslims The data presented in Figure 2 shows that Muslims and upper castes are more similar in their voting patterns than the Hindu right would like to acknowledge Muslims and upper castes split their vote amongst the fewest number of parties (around five) In fact the upper caste vote was the least fragmented in 2014 — that is most upper-caste Hindus voted for one party in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections The scheduled tribes (STs) are the exception and they are least likely to split their vote In case of STs the lower level of dispersion is not surprising since they are geographically concentrated and party competition in these pockets is less fragmented Since Independence non-Muslim secularists by working with the Muslim religious elite have focused their attention on maintaining their secular credentials rather than the fact that Muslims in India face discrimination and marginalisation in their daily life The facts belie that the secular credentials of the Indian state are all Muslims need This is certainly not the case If this were true Muslims should have been better off than they are today The Hindu right and especially the BJP should not gloat over the failure of the secular project as far as the well-being of Muslims is concerned There is sufficient data to make it plainly obvious that Hindus discriminate against Muslims and that Muslims have genuine grievances If the BJP truly wants to see “one India” and a “prosperous India” it has to address these concerns head on Since Prime Minister Narendra Modi claims to be not a man of tokenism but a man of substance the BJP should pass and enforce strict anti-discrimination laws against any community in the private sphere This would give Muslims and other marginalised communities a level playing field in the market Modi has often proclaimed that secularism for him means “India first” For India to be first he should create conditions so that the market opts for the best talent and does not discriminate on religious grounds As the leader of a right-wing Hindu nationalist party only he has the political capital to make this move If he fails to do so Muslims will largely stay with the Congress and the BJP will remain a sectarian party whose electoral success

leaders in the alliance discussions ministers Vinod Tawde and Prakash Mehta and BJP city chief Ashish Shelar were taken aback at being offered 60 seats When one of them called it an insult to the BJP Mirlekar reportedly responded: “Is it okay to reduce Sena’s tally from 155 seats contested in 2012 to 113 now as per your offer What about the Sena’s respect” It came as a surprise to many in

life he ensured the supplies reached an effort that was appreciated by Balasaheb He then became a trusted aide and Balasaheb then nominated him to the Upper House of the Legislature in 1996” says one

the period of high inequality prior to about 1930 ( Source: Reuters ) Related News THOMAS PIKETTY’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century has attracted a great deal of attention especially (it seems) where I live in Washington DC Some people have said the city has caught a severe case of “Piketty fever” Everyone seems to be talking about the book — clearly many more people than have read its 700 pages Yet I venture to guess that not too many in Washington had even heard of Piketty — a distinguished academic economist at the Paris School of Economics — before the book appeared Piketty’s book is mainly about inequality in the rich world — its historical magnitudes (based on an impressive data effort) and the factors influencing it (based on economic analysis) The book is a major contribution to ongoing debates and it deserves attention I hope it helps advance the policy debate in the US But how relevant are its messages for India Let me be clear from the outset that I share Piketty’s concerns about the potential damage of high inequality This is something India should be concerned about especially given the signs of rising inequality that we have seen (There are uncertainties about the inequality measures from standard sources for India; if anything we are probably underestimating the rise in inequality) But “inequality” is a big word Policy has to focus on the most important sources of inequality in the context at hand Piketty’s book is mainly about what can be termed “high-end inequality” — notably the top 1 per cent in the rich world And the book is mostly about a specific source of that inequality: the rising concentration of non-human wealth — Piketty’s “capital” in his title comprises physical capital financial capital and real property This is returning the US to levels of inequality not seen since the first few decades of the 20th century In assessing the relevance of Piketty’s book for India three points come to mind: first Piketty’s analysis of rising inequality in the rich world rests on believing that the rate of return to capital appreciably exceeds the rate of growth in national income Piketty demonstrates that this has been the case over the last few decades in the US and that it was so prior to World War I Then we can expect to see capital’s share of total income rising Since capital ownership tends to be very unequally distributed inequality will tend to rise over time (Diminishing returns will set in but not enough in Piketty’s view to stall rising inequality) However given that we don’t expect India to return to its old low-growth path any time soon this dynamic will be more muted or even absent The second point relates to poverty Piketty says surprisingly little about the low end of the distribution but what is happening there must surely count heavily in how we view the changes at the high end The incidence of absolute poverty is falling in India That is not true for the US in the current period of rising inequality Piketty makes much of the similarities between the current period in the US and the period of high inequality prior to about 1930 including the famous “gilded age” between the Civil War and WWI But there is a big difference he does not note Unlike the current period the earlier rise in inequality in the US was accompanied by the falling incidence of poverty People don’t realise just how poor the US was in the mid-19th Century As best I can determine from the data available the proportion of America’s population living below India’s poverty line was roughly as high then as it is in India today The period 1850-1929 saw the poverty rate fall by some 20 percentage points The US saw great progress against such extreme poverty in this period despite rising inequality This is not to say that rising inequality is justified as long as poverty is falling There are other costs of inequality But at least India does not have America’s twin problems today of sharply rising inequality coming with little or no progress against poverty Third the distribution of human capital is hugely relevant to India but plays little role in Piketty’s analysis for the rich world High returns to India’s very unequally distributed human capital are undoubtedly putting upward pressure on inequality Human underdevelopment linked to poverty represents lost economic opportunities for India’s poor who can have little real hope of sharing in the new sources of wealth And it breeds an inequitable growth process While India has seen higher growth rates since the early 1990s and poverty rates have thankfully been falling the antecedent inequalities (especially in schooling) have meant that the country’s poor have shared less in that growth than they could have While the country has made progress against poverty better policies including policies to address the inequalities in human development would have assured greater progress The inadequate schooling and healthcare available to India’s poor is socially and economically disabling — creating a loss of freedom to fulfil a great many people’s potential in life It limits employment opportunities beyond traditional subsistence farming impedes physical and social mobility weakens democracy and renders a person more vulnerable to subordination to the will of others and exploitation in all domains of economic life Women are especially disadvantaged This is hardly news Thankfully there has been progress especially in the form of higher primary school participation rates among poor children However their participation drops off quickly at higher levels and poor quality schooling remains a problem in much of the country (as the Probe Reports have demonstrated) And poor people across India tend to have poor healthcare and poor water and sanitation services India’s future social policies will determine how equitable the country’s future growth will be Consider the US again From the 19th century America was especially good at fostering high quality public education for all which was a key foundation for its equitable growth until the latter part of the 20th century Here there is another (more positive) lesson from American experience The writer is professor of economics at Georgetown University Washington DC and president-elect of the Society for the Study of Economic Inequality

year the civic body received routine complaints against doctors who left early from hospitals for private consultation Former additional municipal commissioner Sanjay Deshmukh had conducted surprise checks only to find senior doctors at KEM Hospital absent from their duties and posted in either clinics or private hospitals In addition to a digital monitoring system a new app has been released for doctors to track and apply for leaves “If a doctor is meeting someone or is busy with some other work he can apply for leave through the app itself The request goes to the head of department who then approves the leave” added Supe However there are still some infrastructural challenges to complete the digitisation In all peripheral hospitals the systems have been installed but the lack of a stable WiFi network means that the entire system is not online “The biometric machines that record our fingerprints are there but there are WiFi issues that don’t allow the machine to function properly” said Dr Pradeep Jadhav in-charge of the peripheral hospitals The doctors on the other hand are concerned with the system interfering with their work Some doctors worry that the timings of operations will
