The eruption in Assam - Mint
Passions in Assam, running high over the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB), appear to have boiled over after the Rajya Sabha passed it on Wednesday, making persecuted minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan eligible for Indian citizenship.
In the name of a majority - Anupama Roy, Hindu
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB), passed in both Houses this week, promises to give the protection of citizenship to non-Muslims who fled to India to escape religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. While religious persecution is a reasonable ground for protection, the problem with the CAB is that it does not include all communities that suffered religious persecution, and explicitly excludes Muslims who suffered persecution in the specified countries and other non-Muslim majority countries like Myanmar.
Govt may toss aside corporate critics but there are two things it needs to reflect on - Chetan Bhagat, Economic Times
Several senior leaders of the government reassured people that there is no need to fear the government, reacting to comments from a leading industrialist who alluded to the same. Fact is corporate India almost never criticises the government in public. Under any government, the Indian promoter knows his or her place.
Don’t expect the poor to sacrifice for climate change - Swaminathan S Anklesaria Aiyar, Economic Times
Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that without drastic action by 2030, world temperatures would rise by over 1.5 degrees, melting icecaps, hitting crops, and deepening poverty. It said the world must massively reduce carbon use, through fuel taxes and allied measures.
CAB not regressive, it’ll heal Partition wounds - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
One of the more interesting features of modern society —at least since the advent of instant, global communications — is the fleeting collective attention span of people. The tendency to jump from subject to subject or, rather, controversy to controversy, has distorted public discourse immeasurably and made it extremely difficult for policy makers to get a fix on public opinion.
What are netas afraid of? - Markandey Katju, Pioneer
A big hue and cry has been raised by Congressmen over the withdrawal of SPG (Special Protection Group) security cover for Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, alleging that it is an act of political vendetta.  One wonders what the brouhaha is all about, because they will still get Z plus security, which means that they will have commandos from the CRPF in close proximity, besides guards at their homes and where ever they travel in the country.
The Gandhi brand is losing its sheen - Kalyani Shankar, Pioneer
The Gandhi brand seems to be at a historic low at present. With its recent showing in the  Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly polls, the Congress has proved that the grand old party can survive without the dynasty.
Take a leaf out of Akbar’s policies - Markandey Katju, Pioneer
The Ibadatkhana Movement, that began recently in the Bay Area of California, USA, is going to be of historical importance for the future of India. I explained this to the members of the newly-formed Ibadatkhana Committee and its chairman Tassawar Jalali at a meeting in Jalali’s San Jose home recently. Here’s a gist of what I said there.
Is democracy in distress? - RK Pachauri, Pioneer
In recent months, there has been a spate of demonstrations, often leading to violence in various countries with established forms of democracy. The earliest of these was, perhaps, the so-called “Yellow Vest” protest in France, which began in October 2018.
How symbols persist: The curious case of the Hyderabad funds - TCA Raghavan, Telegraph India
The British High Court judgment on the Hyderabad funds case on October 2 may well mark the closure of a seven-decade-long litigation, although Pakistan can still appeal to the Supreme Court. The proximate reason for the long legal proceedings was obvious enough — an India-Pakistan tangle over money.
