blogs.economictimes.indiatimes.com — Should the secular Indian state advance the religious norms enshrined in Islamic shariah law? This is the question raised by an ill-advised move by SBI Funds Management to start an Islamic mutual fund called the SBI Shariah Equity Fund. The fund, whose scheduled launch this week has reportedly been deferred, will be benchmarked to the S&P BSE 500 Shariah Index.

President Obama Goes to India

online.wsj.com — Come Jan. 26 next year, Barack Obama will become the first U.S. president to shatter a symbolic taboo: inviting an American as chief guest at India's annual Republic Day celebrations. For Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the president's visit will mark both a diplomatic and a political coup.

Why morality matters in a market economy

aei.org — Please note this event is Indian Standard Time. In much of the world, including India, the free enterprise system has come to be associated with material greed, or wealth creation for its own sake. AEI President Arthur C.

Pakistan’s Blasphemy Impasse

online.wsj.com — Even for a nation inured to brutality, last week's murder of a young Christian couple by a violent mob stands out for its sheer horror. About 1,000 angry villagers in Pakistan's Punjab province beat to a pulp 26-year-old Shahzad Masih and his pregnant 24-year-old wife, Shama, before burning them in a brick kiln.

3 reasons India’s Congress party is in trouble

aei.org — After a string of massive electoral defeats, India's left-of-center Congress Party, which has ruled the country for all but 13 years since independence in 1947, is reeling. In The National Interest, I ask if Congress can stage another comeback, or whether it's time to start imagining an Indian political landscape without it.

RIP, Indian National Congress

nationalinterest.org — Is the party over for the Indian National Congress Party? On October 19, Congress received another jolt in what has arguably been its worst year since its founding in British India in 1885.

BJP at the Crossroads

online.wsj.com — For a political outfit often described as right-of-center, India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has long faced an odd dilemma: Even its well-wishers are unsure about the depth of the party's commitment to market-based economic reforms. The BJP is more powerful today than ever before in its 63-year history.

Seceding From India's Democracy

online.wsj.com — If you're looking for a common purpose to bind India's communists, Hindu nationalists and a gaggle of regional and caste-based outfits try this: a program of tire burning, stone pelting and bus torching. On Monday, opposition parties took to the streets nationwide to protest a government decision last month to raise fuel prices.

Malala and the Malaise in Pakistan

online.wsj.com — When the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded this year's Peace Prize jointly to an Indian and a Pakistani, the symbolism was impossible to miss. The Committee praised 60-year-old Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi for fighting "the grave exploitation of children for commercial gain."
