What a week for Trump, Netanyahu and Modi!

This past week has been a very exciting week globally. At home, in the USA, there was the much-anticipated House hearing of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s one-time personal lawyer, the ‘fixer’. He appeared fully prepared, genuine, believable and remorseful for his previous support and lying on behalf of his former boss whom he described as a con-man, liar and cheat. Trump is also a racist and a bigot. None of these epithets for Mr. Trump is, however, new. He is worse.

Lalin's Column : Independence turned National day parade, an utter farce

The 71st Independence Commemoration day in 2019 was an utter farce. The ‘ordinary’ people were excluded from the major event, the parade on the Galle Face Green. It may have confirmed the government’s attitude to them. Way back, especially when it was held in Kandy, Galle, Kurunegalla, Badulla, Trincomalie and Matara, the parade drew tremendous and excited crowds as it did in Colombo before 2015.

Letter From America: The Myth of ‘Bengali Migration’ to Arakan

Genocidal crimes don’t occur by chance and require years of preparation. The rationale for justifying such horrendous crimes is often provided by the evil geniuses or the ideologues within the dominant group. This ominous task is sometimes shared by other powerful groups within the perpetrating community, e.g., religious, business, social and political leaders, let alone a chauvinist government, stimulating the general population to participate in the elimination campaign against the targeted group, which is viewed as ‘different’. As a matter of fact, ideologues like Julius Streicher acted as the catalysts to expedite the ‘Jewish solution’ in Nazi Germany. They popularized Hitler’s fascist agenda and made his mission a national project inside Germany.

Letter From America: Racism in our time: can it be defeated?

How pervasive is the race problem in the USA?

To find an answer we don’t need to look beyond the latest revelations from Virginia where Governor Ralph Northam, a Democrat, has been accused of posting about a racist image that appeared on his 1984 medical school yearbook page. He admitted to darkening his face to portray Michael Jackson in a 1980s dance contest in San Antonio.

Something is grossly wrong with our friendly neighbor

After playing the religion card in politics for over a decade, radical Hinduist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to be feeling the necessity of getting itself from the dirt of being branded as an extremist pro-Hindutva force. Although it is well perceived by everyone – BJP is a brainchild of Rashtriya Sawamsevak Sangh (RSS), which is the platform of ultra-nationalist and radical Hindus. In the past, RSS had hands behind numerous religious riots in India, while the RSS-BJP nexus has been greatly responsible for tarnishing the secularist image of the largest

Super Blood Wolf Moon: Flat-Earthers come up with their own model to explain it

If we wanted to insult someone who, along with us, was born in the 20th century, the easiest way to do it was to brand him or her as someone who still believed that the Earth was flat. In the 21st century, however, it’s not the case anymore; there is a growing community, especially in the USA and UK, who believe that the Earth is, in fact, flat, not spherical.
