On Jan 2 2021, the newsrack service has been shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it was time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

This is an archive of previously crawled content that will be kept around for a few weeks.

BJP targets Rahul, sees Congress pattern in Tharoor's 'Hindu Pakistan' remark 11.1.2020 Central Chronicle
New Delhi, The BJP on Thursday stepped up attack against Congress party and its Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor for the 'Hindu Pakistan' remark and said these observations are highly objectionable. "Mr Rahul Gandhi, such kinds of abuses against Indian democracy your leaders have been using is something which has become a constant feature of the Congress party," BJP spokesman Sambit Patra told reporters here. This statement and use of the phrase 'Hindu Pakistan' is deliberate and it makes an assault on Indian democracy, he said adding "the remarks also make assault on the Hindus". Mr Patra said while there is a general mood of satisfaction in the country that the Indian economy has surpassed France - as per the latest World Bank report - but the statement was an "insult" to compare the world's sixth largest economy with Pakistan. "Modiji aur Bhajpa se nafrat karte karte, Congress party Hindustan ke Loktantra ke khilaf bolna arambh kar dete haen (By their sheer hatred for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ...
