    A Turkish Hypocrisy

    August 5, marked the one year anniversary of the revocation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370.The effect of the decision has been felt both in the domestic as well as the foreign affairs of India. It was a bit uncanny, that there had not been much criticism of this decision by other states, as was “expected” and “feared” by the leaders of the ruling Party (as other past events on Jammu and Kashmir have shown). On the contrary, it was branded as an internal matter of India and rightly under its sovereign jurisdiction. Such an international stance on this issue was not well received by…

    Introduction: Bioterrorism is a planned and organized use of pathogenic strains of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses or their toxins to spread life-threatening pathogens on a massive scale to devastate the population of the area. People have described the next hundred years as the ‘century of biology.’ Incredibly rapid and dramatic changes in genetic modifications in biomolecular engineering and strengthened bio-production technologies may, however, make it easier for terrorists to overcome the barriers that have hindered the procurement of bio agents in the past. The danger of biological warfare has attracted the attention of Indian defense and medical experts for a long time. There have been a few episodes of…

    Economics of Cybersecurity

    National security is often regarded as a conical public good. Are all members of society equally covered under this especially in the cyber realm? Security and defence experts claim that the Cyberworld could be the ‘5th Dimension’ of warfare. With the growing number of technological advances, some profit from misusing the technology for personal gain. Why do breaches happen when there are technological solutions to prevent them? Is the cost of providing said security more than a possible loss from breach of information?   You would think that tech companies and banking and financial institutions would not take risks while handling your personal information and other confidential information you divulge…

    Lessons on Social Media and Mainstream Media in the Light of US Capitol Attack

    An EU official termed the attack on Washington incident as “social medias 9/11” and we need to acknowledge that 9/11 caused a shift in global security so should this unfortunate incident. Social media offers a platform that I free of consequences, legal and otherwise. President Donald Trump legitimized radical supporters by calling out to the on social media, in person and other platforms. Plans to storm the capitol were made in a public forum and nothing was done to combat with such obvious warning signs. The fact that mainstream media in its way enabled the attack is irrefutable. Right-wing media spread disinformation about the election and contested President-Elect Joe Bidens…

    Cracking the Code: why we need a UCC?

    No discussion on the original vision for the Indian state can be addressed without grasping the key principle of secularism and understanding the context in which the civil code was designed. Looking back seven decades to the constitutional moment, the constituent assembly was confronted with a vital question in an already deeply divided society; one that asked how an equilibrium could be reached between establishing legal uniformity whilst accounting for different religious practices. To prevent the debate around the civil code from becoming an inhibition to forming the Republic, the decision was postponed to a time in the future when the institutions and establishments of a potentially more united India…
