NewsNew York: In an effort that India is likely to snub once again US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has hinted that he is looking for a mediating role between India and Pakistan This would be the third foray by President Donald Trump and his administration into a touchy terrain from where three of his four immediate predecessors have beaten a retreat and one George W Bush pragmatically stayed away from With Washington now promoting a larger global role for India as an anchor of stability in the Indo-Pacific region and as an emerging counterweight to China the Trump administration could be looking for a way to lighten the drag of Pakistani problems on India File image of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson AP Speaking to reporters in Geneva on Thursday Tillerson said that during his meeting with Pakistani leaders in Islamabad this week "I made the observation to them ‘You have two very troubled borders You have one in Afghanistan you have one with India’ and that we’re willing to help on both of those borders and we’re not just here to talk about the situation on the Afghan border We’re also here to talk about how can we lower the tensions on the border with India" He was not asked —and he did not say —if he had made a similar offer to Indian leaders His statement came despite a long history of New Delhi firmly rebuffing involvement by anyone in what it holds is a matter solely between the two neighbours New Delhi brandishes the 1972 Simla Agreement between then prime ministers Indira Gandhi of India and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan to strenuously oppose any third party involvement in disputes with Islamabad In the pact signed after the Bangladesh War the neighbours agreed to settle disputes only by themselves though Pakistan has since sought to involve others Tillerson said in Geneva that during his Islamabad visit Pakistanis mentioned their differences with India but did not talk much about US-India ties Asked about Islmabad’s reactions to Washington’s plans to deepen relations with India he said "There was not a lot of discussion about that other than they clearly have their differences with India they have their concerns along their border with India" In what may be a sop to Pakistan he added "There are legitimate concerns on both sides of that border as well" During his campaign for the presidency Trump had said "I would love to be the mediator or arbitrator" But he carefully prefaced it with the caveat "If they wanted me to" "If we could get India and Pakistan getting along I would be honored to do that" he said "That would be a tremendous achievement" In April the US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley said about India-Pakistan tensions "I would expect that the administration is going to be in talks and try and find its place to be a part of that (process) because it’s concerned about the situation" And heightening expectations she added "And also (I) wouldn’t be surprised if the President participates as well" India had swiftly rejected the offer stating its position that any bilateral redressal of India-Pakistan issues can "only be held in an environment free of terror and violence" For all the good intentions of US presidents and UN secretary-generals it is not just India’s opposition to third party involvement that works against them but Pakistan’s powerful military syndicate buttressed by its history Kashmir which India considers an integral and immutable part of India is the core issue for which there can be no solution without Pakistan’s military’s agreement Keeping the Kashmir issue boiling – despite failing to get any active diplomatic support for its cause from anywhere in years – is the very source of the Pakistani military establishment’s power Dragging the US or others into it is but Islamabad’s ploy to try to weaken India’s resolve – a ploy New Delhi understands The last – and perhaps the only – third party mediation was in 1966 when Soviet Prime Minister Alexei Kosygin brought Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri of India and Pakistani President Ayub Khan to Tashkent after the 1965 war They signed the Tashkent Declaration that was to be the framework for peace undertaking to improve relations between the neighbours and not to interfere in each other’s internal affairs But it unravelled in five years Starting on a path strewn with hubris and failures former President George HW Bush — the "senior" — tried to mediate between India and Pakistan in 1990 through his Deputy National Security Adviser Robert Gates to defuse mounting tensions as both countries massed troops along their border Gates is reported to have facilitated exchange of information between the two sides that de-escalated that particular tension — a claim India disputes However Gates who later became Defence Secretary under President Barack Obama did not try to mediate the broader issues like Kashmir Bill Clinton who succeeded the senior Bush suggested in 2006 that Washington seek a role in the neighbour’s dispute "I think the United States should be more involved there even though I think they’ll have to work out this business of Kashmir between themselves" he said But he was roundly rebuffed by Jaswant Singh who was the External Affairs Minister George W Bush who followed him as President however was more attuned to New Delhi’s sensitivities and took a realistic approach refusing to get involved in India-Pakistan disputes Condoleeza Rice who was then his National Security Adviser rejected in 2002 Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf’s pleas for mediation "The USA is always prepared to help in any way but we don’t believe this is something that mediation or facilitation is going to help" said Rice who later became the Secretary of State Barack Obama backtracked and said after his 2008 election "We should probably try to facilitate a better understanding between Pakistan and India and try to resolve the Kashmir crisis so that they can stay focused not on India but on the situation with those militants" But the idea was smothered by India’s opposition —only for his successor’s administration to release yet another trial balloon Trump administration

shape Parliament has become an arena for noise instead of lawmaking National power grids collapse with frightening speed Crusaders against corruption become politicians overnight And Supreme Court judges and auditors usurp the right to govern India As a political commentatorI have found few cheerful subjects to write about That is until the government announced its plans to censor the Internet Why should this announcement have cheered me up Quite simply because it reminded me that however bad India looks at the momentit is nowhere near as bad as it used to be in those socialist times when I began my career as a journalist I joined The Statesman newspaper two months before Mrs Gandhi declared the Emergency and imposed press censorship The Statesmanlike this newspaperchose to defy her diktat and was forced to submit to pre-censorship On some daysthe newspaper was returned so late at night that it became pointless to print the next day As a humble reporterit was not my job to report on the momentous political changes of the day so I was secretly thrilled to become a victim of censorship personally A series I did on Delhi hospitals was considered too dangerous to be published This occasioned my first visit to the Press Information Bureau (PIB) in Shastri Bhawan that in those Emergency times was the nerve centre of Mrs Gandhis exercise in totalitarian rule The officials who manned the PIB had a full sense of their power and did not take long to convert the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting into Orwells Ministry of Truth It is important to remind you here that Indira Gandhi herself realised what a big mistake censorship was and admitted it was one of the reasons why she lost the 1977 election It should have been one of the first tasks of the Janata government to learn from this mistake and abolish the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting altogether Why this did not happen is a question that needs to be put to Shri Lal Krishan Advani who was in charge of this ministry at the time It was the one chance for change and it was lost So censorship of the electronic media continued till it became impossible because of satellites and the arrival of Rupert Murdochs Star channels in the early nineties Then came the Internetmaking censorship even more difficultwhich is why the governments current efforts are no more than a waste of time and taxpayers money After I read the list of hate spewing websites the government had decided to banI spent a morning browsing YouTube They were easily available So I saw Maulana Masood Azhar vomiting venom against IndiaQadiani Muslims and television I heard him gloat over the hijacking of IC 814 He was one of the evil men India exchanged for the passengers on that ill-fated flight I saw Hafiz Saeed making hateful speeches and I saw Praveen Togadia and other leaders of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad expound upon their own hate-filled worldview In their eagerness to implement this new exercise in censorshipofficials ended up banning sites like Jihadwatchorg This is a website that keeps a watch on jihadi activities It is not used to spread jihadi terror Will our political leaders never learn Will they never discover that India is not China and that despite their best efforts it never became the Soviet Union Or could it be that I have got it all wrong and that it was after Vladimir Putin started putting punk bands in prison that a new breeze of inspiration blew through the fetid corridors of Shastri Bhawanbringing with it memories of glory days On a more serious notemay I suggest that the Opposition parties stop blocking Parliament and use it instead to demand the abolition once and for all of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting It should never have had a place in a democratic country and certainly should not have one now Since it presides over the Government of Indias ludicrous and embarrassing propaganda advertisements in the pressthe case for abolition becomes more compelling While we are about it can we demand an end to that silly department that censors foreign magazines carrying incorrect maps of India It is yet another exercise in wasted taxpayers money since the magazines can all be read online and usually are As for those journalists who have gone out of their way to support Internet censorshipfor reasons I cannot fathommy advice to them is that they give up journalism for more profitable careers in government At least that way they will not be betraying their dharma and even if the I&B Ministry bites the dustthere will always be propaganda

bestowed by the state authorities upon the welfare of detenues who are well housed well fed and well treated is almost maternal” — wrote Supreme Court judge Hameedullah Beg in his separate judgment in the ADM Jabalpur case (1976) on the issues if citizens’ fundamental rights could be suspended during the Emergency The allusion in the word “maternal” to the lady prime minister of the time who had imposed the infamous Emergency on the country was too obvious to be disavowed And the child got his due reward from the mother Beg was appointed the next chief justice of India superseding the legendary judge HR Khanna who had bravely dissented from the majority judgment If The New York Times saluted the dissenting judge saying “if India ever finds its way back to freedom and democracy that were proud hallmarks of its first eighteen years as an independent nation someone will surely erect a monument to Justice HR Khanna” so what Nehru’s daughter never had any remorse for what she had done This was the second time Indira Gandhi had superseded a senior judge to appoint a CJI of her choice Before this in April 1973 Ajit Nath Ray junior to three judges in the apex court had superseded all three to become the chief justice Former Chief Justice Mohammad Hidayatullah had called it an initiative to produce “not forward looking judges but judges looking forward to their future” Former Attorney General for India CK Daphtary had remarked “the boy who wrote the best essay won the first prize” — the reference being to Ray’s dissent in the cause célèbre called Kesavananda Bharati delivered just two days before he took over as the CJI Appointed out of turn the new chief justice turned out to be a committed judge and a few months before his retirement in 1977 gifted to the nation the infamy of ADM Jabalpur Four of the five judges on the bench deciding this case — Ray Beg Chandrachud and Bhagwati — had gone in government’s favour; poor Khanna was the lone dissenter Ray demitted office in 1977 and Beg perhaps judged as the “runner up” in Kesavananda Bharti succeeded him as the next CJI Ray was not rewarded further after his retirement and spent the rest of his life in ignominy but Beg’s reward did not end with out of turn appointment as CJI After his retirement Indira Gandhi appointed him chairman of the Minorities Commission As against the prescribed three-year term he headed the Commission for seven years and was decorated with Padma Bhushan The majority decision in ADM Jabalpur was severely criticised everywhere then and continues to be criticised till this date as a dark spot in India’s legal history On the silver jubilee of the decision in April 2001 the People’s Union for Civil Liberties remembered it as “a judgment so shameful that even Hitler would have blushed had he the opportunity to peruse it” In his Justice Khanna Memorial Lecture of 2009 former Chief Justice MN Venkatachaliah said the decision deserved to be “confined to the dustbin of history” Delivering the next lecture in the series to honour Khanna former Attorney General Soli J Sorabjee recollected his response to the Ray-Beg ruling: “I never cry or show my emotions after losing a case But that day sitting with Nani Palkhivala in Mumbai discussing the case I cried” In a 2010 judgment Justice AK Ganguly of the Supreme Court admitted that “the instances of this court’s judgment violating human rights of citizens may be extremely rare but it cannot be said that such a situation can never happen We can remind ourselves of the majority decision of the Constitution Bench of this court in ADM Jabalpur” In a press interview given in 2011 nonagenarian PN Bhagwati said: “The majority judgment was not the correct judgment If it was open to me to come to a fresh decision in that case I would agree with what Justice Khanna did” Though too late in the day these judicial confessions of guilt must have pleased the noble soul of Hansraj Khanna who had sacrificed
