Maldives and the Islamic State:

Paper No. 5841                     Dated 9-Dec-2014
 
By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
Since September this year, former President Nasheed has been repeatedly pointing out that “Radical Islam” is getting very strong in Maldives.  He made another significant observation recently that the strength of radical Islamists is increasing in the military and the Police. This should be of concern not only to Maldives, but also two of its neighbouring countries- India and Sri Lanka.

UNIFORM CIVIL CODE – It is time to revisit this issue

Paper No. 5742                                        Dated 08-Jul-2014

By R. Upadhyay

With the recent Supreme Court Judgement that Fatwas are not legally binding, the question of a uniform civil code is again being debated.
