In the M&G newsroom we despaired at how these devastating stories, and those we were beginning to publish on the Zuma-Gupta nexus, had no impact. Recent events in SA are a reminder that sometimes the returns on investigative journalism take years. But the democratic payoff comes.

Exactly a month ago his father Sadiq Sheikh died of heart failure, disillusioned with the justice system of this country. Mohsin Shaikh was the first victim of mob lynching in the Modi era.

"They shot him dead on the spot. They shot him in the ribs and the bullets came out of his back." It's still very difficult to get news out of Zimbabwe. We spoke eyewitnesses, activists, doctors and lawyers to get a picture of what's going on. It's ugly.

Wish this BJP leader belonged to a different faith. NIA would have filed a chargesheet by now with multiple ISIS connections.

In 2011, the congress regime in Maharashtra slapped sedition on teenagers for reading Karl Marx and Bhagat Singh. A bit rich when you unleash the demon and sermonise others on misuse.

A daily massacre is taking place in the streets of Sudan. It is an infuriating irony that after being the most fashionable human rights cause, Sudan is now struggling to attract the spotlight at the exact moment momentum is finally gathering against the regime.

There is lots of evidence across many domains that black people’s lives are valued less than whites’ in the US. In the media, this shows up in articles about police violence, which use mugshots of young black men murdered by police, and professional photos of their killers. /6

To arrest Anand Teltumbde is to try and silence a powerful and unique Dalit voice with an unimpeachable intellectual track record. His impending arrest cannot but be seen as a political act.

I've come to know & love , & . Few love their country as much: they're fiercely devoted to justice for India's disadvantaged people. To charge them, & with sedition is an outrage. Dissenting students & profs light our way to the future

Unless the Supreme Court strikes it down, the 10 per cent quota will be an abomination on the Constitution, an ahistorical step backwards in India’s painfully slow journey towards a more equal society.
