records obtained by the Indianapolis Star The newspaper reported on Thursday that emails provided through a public records request show that Pence communicated with advisers through his personal AOL account on homeland security matters and security at the governor’s residence during his four years as governor Mike Pence Reuters The governor also faced email security issues Pence’s AOL account was subjected to a phishing scheme last spring before he was chosen by Donald Trump to join the GOP presidential ticket Pence’s contacts were sent an email falsely claiming that the governor and his wife were stranded in the Philippines and needed money The governor moved to a different AOL account with additional security measures Pence spokesman Marc Lotter said but has since stopped using the new personal account since he was sworn-in as vice president Lotter said Pence "maintained a state email account and a personal email account" like previous governors in the state At the end of his term Pence directed outside counsel to review all of his communications to ensure that state-related emails were transferred and properly archived by the state the spokesman said As Trump’s running mate Pence frequently criticized rival Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state accusing her of purposely keeping her emails out of public reach and shielding her from scrutiny Lotter said "the comparison is absurd" because Clinton had set up a private server in her home at the start of her tenure at the State Department and unlike Clinton Pence did not handle any classified material as Indiana’s governor The newspaper reported that the office of Pence’s successor Indiana Gov Eric Holcomb released more than 30 pages from Pence’s AOL account but declined to release an unspecified number of emails because they were considered confidential Public officials are not barred from using personal email accounts under Indiana law but the law is interpreted to mean that any official business conducted on private email must be retained to comply with public record laws The state requires all records pertaining to state business to be retained and available for public information requests Emails involving state email accounts are captured on the state’s servers but any emails that Pence may have sent from his AOL account to another private account would need to be retained At the end of his term Pence hired the Indianapolis law firm of Barnes & Thornburg to conduct a review of all of his communications and that review is still ongoing Lotter said Any correspondence between Pence’s AOL account and any aides using a state email account would have been automatically archived he said By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: May 17

(USCIRF) has once again indicted India in its 2015 report The USCIRF is an independent bipartisan US federal government commissionestablished in 1998 under the International Religious Freedom Act and “monitors”freedom of religion in the entire world — except the US The EU has also put India ona list of “countries of particular concern”on religious freedom India may have refused to take cognisance of the recently released report but it presents an opportunity tolook at the state of religious freedoms inour country But before we do that a mirror should also be held up to the US There is a chaplain for the Senate and the armed services Prayer breakfasts are routine in the White House Interestingly in the US Supreme Court public sessions are opened by a functionary announcing: “God save this honorable court” In Vidal vs Girard’s Executors the US Supreme Court held that America is a “Christian country” and in US vs Macintosh observed that it is “filled with Christian people” Freedom of religion is globally recognised as a fundamental human right It includes the freedom to have or adopt a religion to change one’s religion without being persecuted and to manifest one’s religion In the last few months Prime Minister Narendra Modi has maintained that every individual has the “undeniable right to retain or adopt” any faith But still there is some truth to the USCIRF report Since June 2014 religious minorities have been subjected to a series of derogatory comments by members of the ruling party and the prime minister has not taken any visible action against them Is it not a fact that the BJP’s 2014 manifestohad promised the banning of conversion Modi needs to tell his party and the RSSthat a Central conversion law would impinge on the freedom of religion and make a mockery of his promise of “complete freedom of faith” But our Supreme Court has also taken a very restrictive view of the freedom of religion It has held that under this right only essential practices of religion are protected And what is “essential” or peripheral would be decided by the court — not by sacred texts But if the judiciary is not competent to decide on policy matters it certainly should not have the power to pronounce on the essential practices of a religion Article 25 was meant to guarantee the freedom to practise individual beliefs The Supreme Court acknowledged this when it observed that “subject to the restrictions which this article imposes every person has a fundamental right under our Constitution to entertain such religious beliefs as may be approved by his judgement or conscience” The essential practice test is antithetical to this fundamental constitutional principle Under the test the court privileges certain religious practices over others by granting them legal protection The test inevitably asks the court to answer questions on religion which it is ill equipped to do The court looks to apply the certainty of law to religious questions where there is always a divergence of opinion The problem with adjudicating on cultural practices is that the judiciary prefers black and white answers whereas the very nature of culture is subjective Religion is similar eluding precise definition It is beyond the mandate of Article 25 to judicially create certainty The decisions of the Supreme Court on conversion also limit the freedom of religion In the most important case Stanislau vs State of Madhya Pradesh it was argued that since anti-conversion laws prohibit conversion they are contrary to the Constitution as they hinder the “propagation” of one’s religion But the court upheld their validity It was held that Article 25(1) does not grant the right to convert another person to one’s religion but to transmit or spread one’s religion through the exposition of its tenets The court did not discuss the definitions of “inducement” and “allurement” the primary bones of contention It is sad that the apex court did not look into the legislative history of Article 25 as the term “propagate” was included as a compromise to assure Christians that it would include the “freedom to convert” In fact all considerations applicable to the freedom of speech should also be applicable to the right to propagate The right to propagate one’s idea is inherent in the concept of the freedom of speech and expression The freedom of conscience includes the freedom to change one’s religion or beliefs It means a person is free to entertain any belief The state should not be able to enquire about or take notice of a citizen’s religious beliefs

presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on July 10 “It reflects the concerns of the country and the cultural imprint” the Panchjanya says “On the one hand it talks of the endeavour to ensure a continuing flow and cleansing of Mother Ganga and on the other announces the launch of schemes in the name of luminaries like Deendayal Upadhyay Madan Mohan Malviya and Sardar Patel” it states The cleansing of the Ganga has been high on the Parivar’s priority list particularly the VHP and its fellow travellers And the Parivar has been striving to co-opt Malviya and Patel both Congress stalwarts to make up for its own deficiency of icons STAMP OF MODINOMICS The Organiser features a morphed photograph of Jaitley a briefcase in one hand walking a tightrope The cover story observes: “Budget 2014-15 was caught between high hopes and hard decisions The finance minister in his budget speech said ‘The prevailing economic situation presents a great challenge It calls for a conscious choice to be made by all of us Should we allow this drift to carry on and watch helplessly Should we allow our future to suffer because of our indecisiveness Should we be victims of mere populism or wasteful expenditure’ In such a challenging situation instead of going for big bang changes Arun Jaitley has opted for a balancing act between ensuring growth and controlling inflation… While retaining Modi’s stamp of addressing high aspirations the finance minister has cleverly played within the limitations of fiscal restraint Therefore despite divergent views about presentation detail and specificities the budget has been positively received” The weekly sees on the budget the “stamp of Modinomics because the announcements made by Jaitley were in line with the vision and promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his election campaign” ACHHE DIN The Organiser’s editorial says: “The Modi government rode on the slogan of ‘Achhe din aane wale hain’ and created aspirations for hope and change… the Union budget 2014 was expected to be a tangible roadmap for ‘achhe din’… As far as the vision related to ‘achhe din’ is concerned by and large all sectors have given thumbs up to the budget on three counts — vision direction and content… There is a logical continuity in the BJP’s election manifesto the priorities identified after government formation the rail budget and the general budget While focusing on standard budgetary parameters of education employability fiscal discipline and rationalisation of taxes the budget smartly outlines issues of cultural heritage aspiration industry and growth security and inclusion” It argues that “the budget is a clear embodiment of the ideological vision of the government” Compiled by Pradeep Kaushal For all the latest
