Witch-hunting: a social ill law alone cannot fight 19.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The recent torture and violent killing of a 40-year old woman in Rajasthan's Ajmer district who was accused of being a witch is not an isolated incident. Witch-hunts are a common practice in many parts of the country and the problem of violence perpetrated against women in the guise of 'witch-hunting' is an extremely serious one. A 'witch' (dayan, chudail or tohni) is perceived as a person, mostly a female, who is capable of performing black magic or sorcery and thus cause harm to another person or family. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), India's nodal agency for the collation of countrywide crime statistics, 2,097 murders committed between 2000 and 2012 were 'witch-hunt' murders. Moreover, many witch-hunting cases remain unreported due to inaccessibility and remoteness of places where these crimes are being committed. While we have largely come to recognise sexual violence against women as a grave threat, we are yet to acknowledge the violence perpetrated in the guise of ...

Why is govt shy of posing those queries to P Chidambaram, asks Congress 17.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The Congress on Saturday came out openly in support of former union minister P Chidambaram, accusing the government of witch-hunting his family in the Aircel-Maxis case, crossing all limits. On Friday, the former minister had dared the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to question him instead of harassing his son Karti Chidambaram. Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjeewala, in a statement, said the government was taking out political grudges instead of bringing justice to the case. He said the government was misusing the agencies to harass Congress leaders. "We agree with P Chidambaram completely. If any questions have to be asked, why is the BJP government shy of asking those questions to Chidambaram. Does it not show the double standards and malice to prosecute the family of Chidambaram? His son Karthi is being repeatedly harassed with successive notices which have no meaning, content and foundation," the statement said. Earlier, in a series of tweets, Chidambaram had accused the probe ...

Congress voices support for P Chidambaram and his son Karti, accuses Centre of 'witch hunt' 16.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
 The Congress on Saturday came out in support of former Union minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram, who are facing corruption charges, and accused the BJP government of carrying out a "repeated persecution and scurrilous witch-hunt" of the family. Congress media in-charge Randeep Surjewala alleged that "persecution, vendetta and vilification" of opposition leaders had become the "sine qua non" (an essential condition) of the Narendra Modi government. "Tragically, the CBI, ED and other investigating agencies have become captive puppets in the government's mal-intent to oppress, hound and intimidate its opponents," he said in a statement. "Repeated persecution and a scurrilous witch-hunt of the family of former finance minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis case by the BJP government and CBI/ED have crossed all proportions, in complete negation of facts," he added. Surjewala said the agencies did question Chidambaram in 2014 and alleged that they "deliberately ...
