Dive In


I'm fearing very much a repressive, very right-wing government coming.

That’s what a Swedish voter said at the polling booth this week—and the results of the country’s national elections may indeed prove him right. While the final outcome is too close to call, the far-right Sweden Democrats appear to have secured nearly 21% of the vote. With roots in Sweden’s neo-Nazi movement, it ran on a stridently anti-immigration platform. It will be the biggest party on the right—and may potentially pick the next prime minister. FYI: Sweden is known as one of Europe’s most progressive states and ranks among the happiest nations in the world.

Gyanvapi mosque ruling: Why it matters

The TLDR: A Varanasi court judge rejected a key challenge to a petition filed by five Hindu women—asserting their right to offer daily prayers at the mosque. While the merits of their case are yet to be decided, the decision opens the door to revisiting The Places of Worship Act—which prohibits the conversion of any place of worship.
