When Rajiv Gandhi decided to overturn the judicial verdict in the Shah Banoo case I was the Special Secretary in the Government of India’s Home Ministry. I remember the chill that descended in the Ministry’s corridors with officers criticising the decision, albeit in whispers.

The Shah Banoo decision shocked the conscience of all liberal minded Indians. The Hindu right, of course, gained enormously. It gave a boost to the Ram Janmabhoomi movement. It was the single largest contribution to the turn in good fortune of the BJP and the decline of the Congress.

Hemant Karkare laid down his life for his friends. Every man and woman in the land was his friend. He did not discriminate between man and woman, Hindu and Muslim, this caste or that. He was a professional policeman. And he was a patriot. And that is what people expect of their public servants.

We have been fighting for police reforms for years. These reforms were mandated by the National Police Commission. The main concern in the way of police reforms is transfers and promotions of senior officers.

s far as the appointment of DGP and CP are concerned, there was to be a security commission constituted to do the job. The security commission comprised the home minister, leader of opposition, a judge and a few non-political members.

After seeing two wars I can't run away from danger. If a bullet is destined to get me it will come with my name written on it.

General Arun Shridhar Vaidya

It said I am their number one enemy and there have been seven attempts on my life which I have escaped but I will not escape the eighth one. I am not sure if this was supposed to be the one in London
