the country The government will automatically be on backfoot and it cannot force the unique number on the citizen for every aspect of governance In other words Aadhaar as the government envisages today will eventually see a natural death It will be limited to what it was originally made for-transfer of government benefits No doubt the Aaadhar is a revolutionary step India has taken that is fundamental to the Director Benefit Transfer (DBT) programme conceptualised and executed by two successive governments Certainly it has helped to plug subsidy leakages to a significant extent Much work and investment have gone into the institution of Aadhaar-mechanism Already 115 crore Aadhaar cards have been issued so far The point here is it is the government’s task to convince the apex court and the general public that every concerns on privacy issues are addressed to take the Aadhaar programme ahead The Aadhaar schemeis critical for the new economic structurewhich is on the lines of certain number of developed nations with a similar unique identity structure for their citizens For this the government needs to make legislations that addresses concerns on data privacy laws something even Nandan Nilekani the architect of Aadhaar had mooted earlier More than what country’s top court says on this issue right to privacy and individual freedom are democracy’s basic commitments to its stakeholders and it’s the job of the elected government of the day to fulfill that promise The lawmakers must do what they are supposed to do at this juncture —make data privacy laws and thus help Aadhaar emerge as a winner in the new economic structure Rabri Devi has been summoned by the ED (Enforcement Directorate) on 27 October in relation to the IRCTC (Indian Railway

be misleading to interpret United States’ move to designate Hizbul Mujahideen as a ‘foreign terrorist organisation’ as purely a counter-terrorism initiative A debate framed in these terms will miss the point by a mile It is not as if the US has suddenly woken up to the fact that an organisation that has been carrying out acts of subversion and terrorism on Indian soil for the last three decades is a ‘terrorist outfit’ In fact theUS State Department notification clearly identifies Hizbul as "one of the largest and oldest militant groups" operating in Kashmir since 1989 It is helmed by Mohammad Yusuf Shah aka Syed Salahuddin whom the Donald Trump administration had branded a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist’ last June just ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s maiden meeting with the US president in Washington As part of a global effort to fight terrorism the move is largely symbolic and may only superficially affect Hizbul’s ability to raise funds Salahuddin had recently boasted in an interview to a Pakistani TV channel that "Kashmiris" all across the world are funding terrorism in India and he can procure any weapon from the international market at the right price FIle image of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahudeen ANI Will this initiative choke Salahuddin’s access to funds The notification stresses that the outfit’s "property and interests in property subject to US jurisdiction are blocked and US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with the group" but to assume that this will constrict the organisation’s operations is silly and equally harebrained is the assumption that the Trump administration is innocent of this reality Therefore instead of trying to search for counter-terrorism motives in the US decision we should interpret it as part of a series of well-coordinated steps to bolster India’s position on terrorism and security in India-Pacific region This is where the move makes greater sense because it is not a coincidence that the tag on Hizbul closely follows US announcement of a new two-by-two ministerial dialogue mechanism with India which is expected to put defence and strategic consultations at the front and centre of bilateral ties A White House statement following Trump’s congratulatory phone call to Modi on 15 August read: "The leaders resolved to enhance peace and stability across the India-Pacific region by establishing a new two-by-two ministerial dialogue that will elevate their strategic consultations" The move was reportedly also discussed during external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj’s telephonic conversation with US secretary of state Rex Tillerson Though the word ‘China’ wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the statement and Washington did not elaborate on the specifics it doesn’t take an Albert Einstein to deduce that closer India-US synergy on maintaining "peace and stability across the India-Pacific region" is a message to China The existing mechanism which the two-by-two ministerial dialogue is expected to replace had been started by the Barack Obama administration to bolster bilateral commercial ties The adoption of defence and strategic consultations in the mechanism suggests that the Trump administration places greater stress on India as a strategic partner Consider that the India-US move is being initiated at a time when China has irked both nations through its policies and actions Trump has flatly blamed China for not doing enough to contain North Korea’s nuclear warhead and intercontinental missile programsand had recently ordered a probe into Beijing’s unfair trade practices and "theft of intellectual property" triggering a stinging response from China Concurrently India and China have been locked in a tense standoff in the Sikkim sector with no resolution in sight New Delhi accuses Beijing of violating existing boundary mechanisms and agreements in trying to build a motorable road in a sensitive tri-junction area also involving Bhutan while China has blamed India for violating its "sovereignty" and has repeatedly threatened war The US hasn’t said much (chiefly because India doesn’t want this to be highlighted) but has asked "both parties to have a direct dialogue to reduce tension" – a direct endorsement of India’s stand China has refused to talk unless Indian troops are "unilaterally withdrawn" from the tri-junction area a condition that is unacceptable to New Delhi In this context the fact that Trump administration is clamping down on terrorist outfits and their leaders inimical to India and elevating the bilateral relationship by adding a strong defence and strategic component to already existing operational and strategic underpinnings are clear indications of a South Asia strategy that looks and sounds awfully like Obama’s Pivot to Asia US action against Pakistan-backed terrorist outfits operating on Indian soil is also a moral indictment of China’s position which has repeatedly vetoed all Indian attempts to blacklist these terrorists at United Nations While the Trump administration is backing India against China its military establishment has announced that it is keen to help India modernise its military "I believe that the US is ready to help India modernise its military India has been designated a major defence partner of the US This is a strategic declaration that’s unique to India and the US It places India on the same level that we have many of our treaty allies" Commander of the US Pacific Command or PACOM Admiral Harry Harris recently told PTI The bigger implication of this synergy is an increasing belief in the US that India — through its recent actions — is expressing a willingness to act as Asia’s security guarantor Make no mistake Washington has noted India’s decision not to join the Belt and Road initiative and interprets the Doka La standoff as India’s statement of intent in not letting Asia become unipolar As Richard M Rossow of at the Center for Strategic and International Studies writes inThe Diplomat the US "just received a loud clear signal that India is ready to take important steps to contribute to the global order and it should strengthen our resolve to further deepen our emerging security partnership" It has been said ad infinitum that a strong India is better for global rules-based order The US is indicating that it believes India’s time has come Kolkata: Accusing the BJP of misusing social media to spread rumour leading to communal riots West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said her government has decided to raise a peace-keeping force to maintain sectarian harmony in the state "Social media is being misused They (BJP) are spreading rumours through social media This is a trend of the BJP . a modern design of the party . That is why we are trying to caution common people" Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat this evening West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee PTI "The government has decided to raise a peace-keeping force involving local people mandated to maintain peace with assistance from the state administration and police" she said Banerjee announced her government’s decision to raise the peace-keeping force to be called Shanti Bahini amid the prevailing communal strife in the North 24 Parganas district threatening to derail the state’s inter-faith harmony Shanti Bahini would be be stationed at over 60000 booths across the state to maintain the communal harmony the chief minister said Pointing fingers at the BJP the chief minister said a conspiracy was on to foment trouble and communal tension in the state Shanti Bahinis would keep an eye on elements trying to disrupt harmony in its locality she said adding the members of the mandir (temple) and masjid (mosque) committees too would be urged to join the league "This is BJP’s modern design . I have seen images of some incidents happening outside the state and the country shown as happening here I want the people to be alert in this regard" Banerjee said "The BJP has no license to incite riots But they are doing it They are spreading hatred among people" she said "Posting the photograph of an incident that happened in Bangladesh they (BJP) were trying to spread a rumour that there had been a communal riot in West Bengal" she said referring to a rumour of stampede in Gangasagar Mela which she said "had not happened at all" The chief minister alleged the BJP has been hatching the "conspiracy" against her party and the government because it "failed to fight TMC politically economically socially and on developmental issues" "We have been noticing this for quite sometime There has been a conspiracy going on Some people are trying to stop Trinamool Congress speaking for people’s cause" she said "There was a meeting in south Kolkata If it had been in an area with people from mixed communities then a communal flare up could have taken place . and the BJP is doing this directly under their party flag" she alleged Elaborating on the role of the peace-keeping force Banerjee said "They will be on look out for people trying to create division in the society and disrupt its peace" "The police alone cannot do everything These Shanti Bahinis will be in every booth of the state Local police stations will form Shanti Bahinis involving the youth students and peace-loving people from the locality" she said Jammu: Slamming those opposed to setting up of transit accommodation for Kashmiri Pandits in the valley Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday questioned how the return of "our people" could bring about a demographic change “They (separatists and others opposed) are saying that if the Kashmiri Pandits comes back it will be demographic change How is it a demographic change" "Those who have taught us lived and grown up with us and in whose homes we used to eat food and those who are an inseparable part of our culture what demographic change will there be if they return back to Kashmir I fail to understand this logic” Mehbooba said while winding up the discussion on Motion of Thanks to the Governor’s Address in Legislative Council in Jammu Though she did not name any party or group Mehbooba was clearly referring to the separatists and some mainstream political parties which are opposing setting up of transit accommodation for Kashmiri Pandits as part of their return to the Valley from which they were forced out in 1990 Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti PTI “Our people want to come back and we say this is demographic change They want to live in transit accommodation and we say that this is demographic change This is absolutely wrong It is not Kashmiriyat And the true spirits of the real Kashmiriyat need to be revived again in the Valley "We need to work unitedly and together for this cause and without it there is no alternative” Mehbooba said She said during the past 25-30 years "we have suffered huge loss of lives and property in the turmoil The composite culture has received a setback The composite culture of the tolling of bells of temple (on Hari Parbat hills) and prayers at Makhdoom Sahib’s Ziarat and the ‘path’ (Sikh prayers) from the Gurudwara — I don’t know what has happened to this culture An unpredictable atmosphere has been created" The chief minister said Jammu has become an example of Kashmiriyat as it has provided a home to all the people of Kashmir including Kashmiri Pandits Kashmir Muslims and Kashmiri Sikhs “I feel that Jammu has become Kashmir today (with regard to composite culture) and Kashmir has reached somewhere else In Kashmir Kashmiris do not have any sign of happiness on their faces but when they reach Jammu I feel they are alive The people of Jammu have adopted the true culture of Kashmir (Kashmiriyat)” she said “But when the government talks about taking back Kashmiri Pandits to Valley and honourably rehabilitating them there then an issue has been created" she said "Forget about others even the mainstream people talk about demographic change We should stop raking up the issue of demographic changes repeatedly It is not Kashmiriyat" the Chief Minister said She said such things may be happening in Afghanistan Syria and in Iraq where guns rule the roost "but this is not the culture of our Kashmir" "We need to find out solution to this issue from this House only" the chief minister said about the Kashmiri Pandit rehabilitation issue On the issue of Article 370 which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir she said there is a need to understand its "depth" "We should not think it is a word written on the piece of paper but go into the depth to understand its ascents Article 370 is not only about securing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir but it is more about securing our culture brotherhood and heritage" Mehbooba “Article 370 is close to our chest but the soul of Article 370 is safeguarding the individuality cultural heritage brotherhood in the state" she said She said Mahatma Gandhi had seen a ray of hope in Kashmir when the entire sub-continent was in flames in 1947 "but that ray is now seen rarely The soul of Kashmiriyat which is being protected by Article 370 has been lost somewhere in Kashmir and this Kashmiriyat is seen in the streets of Jammu" When militancy erupted in Kashmir Kashmiri Pandits migrated to Jammu and lived in camps and later in colonies "and today we see that Kashmiriyat — Pandits and Kashmiri Muslims walking together on the roads of Jammu" she said “This is Article 370 and this is the Article 370 to safeguard this composite culture and we have lost this in Kashmir We have forgotten this"

victims Registration of births and deaths has been mandatory in our country since 1969; yet its enforcement is very poor because of lack of awarenessparticularly in rural areas Not doing so attracts only a paltry fine of Rs 50 Actuallythe purpose of the statute is largely advisory and not punitive The first occasion when a birth certificate needs to be produced is at the time of admission into a school; it is never required if formal education is not received and rarely noted down if the child is born at home in a village In the absence of proof of exact agethe most natural date of birth becomes the minimum age of admission in the school on a particular date One can see many with a similar birth datea typical dateparticularly in the educational institutions But such certificates do not suffice for investigation purposesand medico-legal examination becomes important for cases of kidnapping of a minor (girl under 18 years) from lawful guardianship and rape (of a girl under 16 years) where consent of the victim is immaterial The burden of proving the girls age is on the prosecution In the absence of a true birth certificatethe police have to rely on the findings of a radiologistwhich depend on the ossification of certain bones But this method of determining age gives only an average age because the ossification of bones varies with climatic conditionsdiet and heredity The factor of average age is used by defence lawyers and a margin of two years is added on either sideas an accepted ruleto the age determined by the doctor Doctors who do not keep pace with

be expected to formulate a uniform standard for the determination of age for the whole of India After allowing for a margin of six months on either sidean approximate age can be calculated after considering the physical characteristicssecondary sex characteristics and ossification tests The Supreme Courtruling on a case of minor rape (State of Uttar Pradesh vs Chhotey Lal (2011) 2 SCC
