Naik has always maintained that his speech was taken out of context and media is trying to put him in a bad light by being ‘devilish’.However Naik’s reluctance to return to India have only raised more suspicion The Narendra Modi government’s decision to end Haj subsidy — the nature and amount of which Mecca-bound Muslim pilgrims never knew — has been welcomed by Muslims and non-Muslims alike India is a secular state It is secular because Indian society has always been secular – not because Indira Gandhi introduced the word "secularism" in the Preamble of the Constitution It is befitting therefore for the secular Indian state that it must stop funding religious activities of all kinds The next course for the government should to withdraw itself from administration of religious institutions like Hindu temples which can use their funds to transform themselves into universities of music dance and Indic literature It must also end subsidy for the Mansarovar Yatra which was doubled from Rs 25000 in 2015 by the Akhilesh Yadav government and doubled again to Rs 100000 per person in 2017 by the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh Karnataka gives Rs 20000 per person for pilgrimage to Chardham: Badrinath Kedarnath Gangothri and Yamunotri The Indian state must also stop funding Hindu festivals Currently it spends up to Rs 5000 crore on Mahakumbh at Ujjain alone In 2013 the Manmohan Singh government diverted Rs 800 crore – which was meant for irrigation and urban development in Uttar Pradesh – towards organising the Kumbh in Allahabad It is not the job of the secular state to fund religious festivals though building fundamental infrastructure such as roads or water and electricity supply lines can be justified The amount spent by the Indian state on Haj subsidy which was Rs 405 crore in 2016 down from Rs 680 crore in 2013 – is not even a fraction of what is spent on Hindu festivals Representational image Reuters The Indian state must also withdraw from the management of Haj This is necessary because it has led to politicisation of a matter that is purely religious Haj committees set up by governments in different states have become corridors of politics and must be abolished Since the number of Haj pilgrims from different countries is set by Saudi Arabia which Indian Muslim goes for the annual pilgrimage can be decided through a lottery system Once a pilgrim gets a token number they should be free to book their flight and travel to Mecca for Haj possibly through private operators Currently Saudi Arabia permits 175025 Indian Muslims for Haj This is not a vast number Each of these pilgrims can manage their flight travel food and stay The All India Muslim Personal Law Board which welcomed the termination of Haj subsidy made a telling remark: "The subsidy was not given to those going on Haj but it was for Air India that is running in losses It was an eyewash Muslims were cheated in the name of the subsidy" People created governments to better their life But governments became too big and a necessary evil The government must stop forcing Haj pilgrims to travel by the state-run airline Once Haj pilgrims are permitted to buy their tickets from different airlines it will unleash competition between different private carriers The cost of air ticket is bound to crash The actual discount or subsidy if you will will be much higher benefitting the Haj pilgrims If the current government doesn’t stop forcing Indians Muslims to travel by the state-run Air India and does not cease funding Hindu festivals it opens itself to a charge that the ending of Haj subsidy is a communal act meant to consolidate Hindu votes Even though the decision follows from a Supreme Court directive the fact remains that Haj subsidy – and not subsidies for Mansarovar Yatra or Kumbh festivals – has been a potent political issue benefitting the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party Announcing the decision to withdraw Haj subsidy on 16 January Union minister for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said: "Haj subsidy funds will be used for educational empowerment of girls and women of minority community" It is understandable that democracies must give welfare benefits to those who lag in life but there is a serious issue with this statement This means the Modi government which was thought to be different from the previous so-called secular ones believes in appeasement of communities In a secular republic communities cannot be a criterion of policies The only criterion must be the citizen Any Indian – irrespective of caste and religion – and living below the poverty line (BPL) should get welfare benefits Since Muslims are poor they will automatically be the major beneficiary of welfare policies Do not start a new minority politics while

structures is adopted we want to emphasise that it is important that the RBI have both the responsibility and accountability for monetary policy Related News As India moves towards the implementation of an inflation-targeting mechanism the debate about the structure of this policy has intensified Till date monetary policy has been the exclusive domain of the RBI and within the RBI under the exclusive and sole discretion of the governor To be sure the RBI has a large and competent staff that gives inputs to the governor In addition the governor has a seven-member technical advisory committee (TAC) composed of non-RBI experts who deliberate on and recommend monetary policy including repo rates to the RBI However the RBI is not bound by the TAC’s recommendations In this regard the RBI governor has complete and absolute authority on monetary policy as do his counterparts in Latin America (for example Brazil Chile Mexico) and New Zealand (a partial list of countries where the central bank governor has absolute authority) In March 2011 the previous UPA government appointed a nine-member Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC) under the chairmanship of former Supreme Court judge Justice BN Srikrishna The commission was to decide on various regulatory aspects of Indian financial institutions including the RBI Justice Srikrishna had just completed (June 2010) a tenure for the UPA government on the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh which eventually did happen in 2014 UPA finance ministers (P Chidambaram and Pranab Mukherjee) consistently had problems with RBI governors Possibly because of these strained relationships the FSLRC seemed to endorse the view that the RBI’s wings needed to be clipped and then some In the first FSLRC report (V10 March 2013) the proposal for monetary policy implementation was as follows: “…the creation of an MPC [monetary policy committee] that would determine the policy interest rate In addition to the chairperson and one executive member of the board the MPC would have five external members Of these five two would be appointed by the Central government in consultation with the chairperson while the remaining three would be appointed solely by the Central government” However V10 did allow the RBI governor veto power over MPC decisions under “extreme circumstances” The FSLRC’s V10 was a mixture of vote and veto — two members from the RBI (governor and deputy governor for economics and monetary policy) two external members selected by the governor and three selected by the Central government All five would however formally be appointed by the Central government (ministry of finance or MoF) Implicitly four of the five external members of the MPC would have to agree to a course of action different from the governor’s to override him Subsequently the RBI’s Urjit Patel Committee report in January 2014 recommended an MPC with a different balance The report advocated inflation-targeting along with an MPC and the latter was to be constituted as follows: “The governor of the RBI will be the chairman of the MPC the deputy governor in charge of monetary policy will be the vice chairman and the executive director in charge of monetary policy will be a member Two other members will be external to be decided by the chairman and vice chairman on the basis of demonstrated expertise and experience in monetary economics macroeconomics central-banking financial markets public finance and related areas” This report was noteworthy for the fact that it would be near-identical in its power structure to the present no-MPC structure that is the RBI is in control Even if both external members of the MPC disagreed with the governor he would always have at least a 3-2 majority On July 23 the FSLRC responded with its Version 20 of the MPC which would comprise of three members of the RBI (instead of two earlier) and four external members nominated by the MoF — and no extreme circumstances and no veto power This recommendation goes against almost any definition of an independent central bank — and in our view will not be acceptable to the MoF or the government The table lists the practice of monetary policy in 15 selected countries As is well-known the US system of setting rates is based on “consensus” with seven of the 12 FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) members being selected by the president and ratified by the Senate The other five rotational members are regional bank heads and are therefore (implicitly) appointed by the central bank The FSLRC’s V20 is comparable to a few of the selected countries — for example Korea Norway the Philippines While some sections of the media have suggested that the Indian structure is similar to Thailand’s that is not the case While Thailand does have a seven-member committee all seven members are appointed by the central bank Our first proposed structure (and the one we really prefer) is that the MPC be a formal five (seven)-member body with the governor as chairman and four (six) outside professional experts as members The tenure of each member should be five (or seven) years The experts cannot be employees of either the RBI or the government of India All four (six) members must have knowledge and expertise in macroeconomics and monetary and/ or fiscal policy The government will have the right to suggest a list of names for the consideration of the RBI but the governor will have the right to choose and appoint those he wants subject to the above criteria The decisions of the MPC will however be binding on the governor This means that if and only if three (four) of the four (six) independent members of the MPC agree on a policy course different from that proposed by the governor would he be obliged to accept their decision Israel seems to have the best mix among the existing systems The governor chairs the MPC consisting of six members with three outside members selected by the government In case of a tie the chair has the deciding vote (not clear on Israel’s central bank website) This is our second proposed structure for the MPC based on the best in emerging-market practice Again we would recommend a five (or seven)-year term Regardless of which of our proposed structures is adopted we want to emphasise that it is important that the RBI have both the responsibility and accountability for monetary policy It should also be and seen to be independent of the government of India Finally accountability of the RBI would mean twice-a-year presentations (and grilling) by parliamentarians not unlike the practice in the US The latter of course cannot happen if Parliament is not allowed to function Bhalla is chairman Oxus Investments and senior India analyst for the

state alleging that it had failed to take any preventive measures State BJP president Dilip Ghosh said that the government was not serious in dealing with the flood situation and had instead resorted to blame the Centre over it “The flood situation is grim in Bengal North Bengal is cut off from the rest of India and the chief minister is blaming the centre However it is clear that no preventive action was taken Floods come every year But no survey was ever done embankments were not repaired” said Ghosh during a press conference at the party headquarters in Kolkata The state BJP chief also blamed the state for not co-operating with the Centre in tacking the flood situation in Bengal “One of the (state) ministers was heard saying that the Centre is not looking at Bengal but Bihar and Assam on the flood issue But why is the state not co-operating with the Centre Why didn’t the state government informed the Centre over the flood situation here The state government has no information about the flood situation Some one is saying that the floods have incurred Rs 55 crore losses while someone else is saying that the losses are to the tune of Rs 400 crore” he said Ghosh alleged that even after the floods ministers were not seen visiting affected areas “Only Mamata Banerjee went to one spot near Kolkata and took some pictures The government is not serious in tackling the floods” he said Ghosh also said that the chief minister should immediately convene an all-party meeting over the flood situation “The chief minister should also sit with all agencies and NGOs and have a clear cut plan of action on the floods and relief measures” he added Regarding Darjeeling Ghosh said that the party wants a solution and blamed Mamata for inciting violence in the Hills “There is politics going on regarding Darjeeling Mamata Banerjee incited violence there Police fired and lathicharged on the protesters Over 90 tea gardens are shut and tourism is badly hit I have spoken to the Hill parties and Union home minister Rajnath Singh a number of times I have told him (Singh) to do whatever possible for the people of the Hills” said Ghosh The state BJP president also stood by the
