Editorial : Haryana mayhem


Parkash Singh Committee report regarding Jat Agitation

Bureaucratic inefficiency

  • Report brings out the manner in which the highest echelons of bureaucracy acted with unwarranted trepidation when circumstances required firm and resolute action against rioters.
  • It seemed that instead of controlling the spiralling violence, the state administration was more worried about how they may have to justify any tough measures in the aftermath.
  • Political interference in recruitment and postings has played havoc with the police force which has come to be dominated by the dominant caste of the state.

Inaction political class

  • Prakash Singh’s remit was restricted to enquiring into the failures of the administrative and law order machinery of the state.
  • It is clear that officials’ inaction would not have been possible without political concurrence.
  • With the Jat community threatening to renew the agitation, Haryana’s political and administration efficiency will again be tested.

Editorial : Not-so-cold war


Iran-Saudi Arabia relations are on downward spiral and India can ill afford to take sides


  • Iran is asserting that the House of Saud are poor guardians of the most sacred places of the Muslim ummah, or nation. Last year, 769 pilgrims were killed in a stampede during the Haj.
  • Saudi Arabia blamed the carnage on Iranian pilgrims, saying they failed to comply with authorities’ instructions.
  • Relations were complicated further when the two countries severed diplomatic relations in January, following a mob attack on Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Tehran after the kingdom executed a prominent Shia cleric.

About power not faith merely

  • Genesis of the conflict lies in Iran’s 1979 revolution, which brought Iran’s new Shia clerical-led regime into frontal confrontation with Saudi Arabia’s Sunni-theocratic order.
  • Tensions rose further that year when King Khalid Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia endorsed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s invasion of his eastern neighbor.
  • Saudi Arabia faces an Iranian ballistic missile programme — which Tehran says is necessary to defend itself against vastly superior, Western-equipped Saudi forces.
  • Saudi Arabia’s oil revenues are declining, even as its restive youth population is drawn to violent Islamism. It is increasingly worried, too, that US support can no longer be taken for granted

For India, with energy and economic interests across both sides of the Iran-Saudi divide, the situation is a deeply uncomfortable one — some say India has to play mediator while wisdom points towards non interference.
