This posture is not specific only to Pakistan and China AdditionallyIndias development imperatives and its commitment to rapid socio-economic transformation require an enabling security environment free from nuclear threat or blackmail With respect to credible minimum deterrenceit is not necessary to specify the minimum in numbers This will be determined in the light of a continually evolving nuclear security environmentboth in Indias own neighbourhood and globally India does not have one minimum for Pakistan and another for China Our nuclear planning does not take place in such tightly separate compartments Concerning ChinaIndia does not need a matching nuclear arsenal or delivery capability A credible minimum deterrent is adequate vis-a-vis China or any other nuclear-armed adversary We will need a vastly enhanced conventional capability in terms of weapon systemsinfrastructureetc in addition to prevent a possible war with Chinamajor or minor This is sought to be addressed by successive Indian governmentsbut regrettably at a pace not commensurate with what is required When its nuclear weapons and delivery capabilities were in a nascent stagesoon after the 1998 teststhe criticism against India was that its force posture did not match the requirements of its nuclear doctrine and hence lacked credibility Nowwhen the force is being modernised and upgradedthe argument is that such developments are destabilising and even contrary to Indias declared no-first-use doctrine Indias nuclear force modernisation is to enhance the credibility of its nuclear doctrinewhich requires a triad of land-basedair-launched and submarine-based nuclear assets and delivery systems The survivability of these assets is a necessary condition for assured retaliation The acquisition of additional assetsthe upgrade of technological capabilities and associated command and control systems must be evaluated in that context The pursuit of R&D in Ballistic Missile Defence and MIRVing of delivery vehicles are not inconsistent with a no-first-use posture It could be argued that both enhance the survivability of assets and the credibility of Indias nuclear doctrine Official thinking in this respect remains to be ascertained The development and deployment of dual-use delivery assets is not peculiar to India This is a challenge that all nuclear-weapon states confront This does add to uncertainty and unpredictability in relations among such stateswhich are best addressed through multilateral negotiationsfocusing on confidence-building measures (CBMs) in the first instance India and Pakistan have bilaterally concluded several nuclear CBMsincluding non-attack on each others nuclear facilitiesrequiring annual exchange of lists of such facilities; the advance reporting of missile launches within a certain range of each others territories and a mutually declared commitment to a moratorium on further nuclear tests India has advocated and is willing to join in the negotiation of nuclear restraints and CBMs at the multilateral level These include an international convention on prohibition of the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons and formal agreement among nuclear-weapon states on global no-first-use of nuclear weapons Questions have been raised about the safety and security of Indias nuclear assets This is a classic case of equating the absence of information so-called opacity with the absence of systems and procedures to deal with such critical issues India should be more transparent about and welcome public debate on its nuclear deterrent There ought to be an annual nuclear posture review Howeverthe nuclear domain is a sensitive one and more transparency may not necessarily enhance deterrence stability The criticism of the DRDOs alleged penchant of overpromising and underdelivering is well taken for this reason In this casea little less transparency and more modesty would be welcome Saranformer foreign secretaryis

as he came towards the line at Tower Bridge (Source: Reuters) Top News Kenya’s Geoffrey Kipkorir Kirui prevailed in a compelling east African duel with Ethiopian Tamirat Tola on the streets of London to win the men’s marathon at the World Athletics Championships on Sunday Kirui victor at the Boston Marathon in April finally broke Tola the fastest man in the field with five miles (805 km) of the 262-mile course left after they had gone head-to-head over the second half of the race At the 19-mile mark Tola the fastest man in the field had made his decisive effort and sped away from the 24-year-old Kenyan but within two miles Kirui had hauled back the lead before surging away immediately and emphatically Kirui forged on so powerfully that by the end of the race as he came towards the line at Tower Bridge he even had time to tap the hands of some of the hundreds of fans lining the finish Kenya’s fifth men’s world champion at the distance eventually clocked 2 hours 8 minutes 27 seconds finishing one minute and 22 seconds ahead of Tola (2:09:49) The Ethiopian who had tired rapidly after Kirui’s second wind just held on for silver by two seconds from the fast-finishing Alphonce Simbu who won Tanzania’s second medal ever at a World Championships Britain’s Callum Hawkins then earned the biggest cheers from the big crowds lining the streets when he came home in a remarkable fourth place in a lifetime best 2:10:17 amid familiar African domination Enthusiastic spectators were crammed 10 deep at key points along the four-lap route which started and finished at Tower Bridge and took in some of London’s most famous sights like the Tower of London The bells chimed at St Paul’s Cathedral and they rang out for Kirui when he surged home alone on the last circuit to complete a remarkable breakthrough year He had run a similar race in Boston producing a late surge over the last few miles to destroy the opposition Now in just his fourth marathon he strode away majestically on an historic day when both the men’s and women’s races were staged On a fine sunny late morning the field of 75 had to negotiate a tricky windy course with tight turns especially when the runners entered the business area of The City with the real contenders just sparring over the first two laps With the field having gone through half-way in 1:05:28 though Tola Kirui and another Kenyan Gideon Kipkemoi Kipketer opted to make the race-changing move as they forged ahead Three quickly became two as Kipketer began to pay and eventually trailed home fifth Meanwhile the race favourite Daniel Wanjiru who had won the London Marathon in the spring run on a very different course never looked comfortable eventually finishing eighth The real shock though came from Hawkins who evidently inspired by competing in his home championships was perfectly happy to take up the pace over the first half of the race and then held on superbly to record the best ever finish by a Briton in a world championship marathon For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Madhavi Goradia Divan | Updated: February 27 2015 12:45 am If promoting obscurantism and superstition is a concern as it appears to have been for the CBFC when it banned ‘MSG’ then television is doing far more damage than films Related News Move over Ranbir Kapoor The rockstar-godman has arrived The film MSG: The Messenger reportedly trumped Ranbir Kapoor’s Roy at the box office Only last month the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had refused MSG clearance on the grounds that the film promoted obscurantism It was released on clearance by the appellate tribunal after a few cuts and is reported to have opened to staggering box office collections Was the CBFC whose members resigned in a huff soon after their decision was upset in the appeal right in prescribing a blanket ban on the film In a country where godmen and godwomen abound on national television prescribing remedies as ridiculous as eating paani poori to be rid of worldly woes perhaps not The film originally titled MSG: Messenger of God features the over-the-hill outlandishly outfitted rockstar-godman Ram Rahim of Dera Sacha Sauda who performs astounding stunts and conquers all evil from prostitution to drugs An exhibition of crude narcissism masqueraded as godliness the film is more tragicomedy than a message from god But that’s not reason enough to ban the film The Cinematograph Act 1952 requires films to be certified by the CBFC before they can be released for public exhibition The guidelines for recommending cuts or denying certification are in line with the grounds on which the fundamental right to free speech under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution can be regulated Restrictions on free speech can be justified only by the reasons spelt out in Article 19(2) namely “in the interests of sovereignty and integrity of India the security of the state friendly relations with foreign states public order decency or morality or in relation to contempt of court defamation or incitement of an offence” On which of these grounds could the ban on MSG have been justified Morality But morality is itself a nebulous notion A constitutional protection for the freedom of speech and expression is that the restrictions under Article 19(2) must be “reasonable” The expression “reasonable” appearing in Article 19(2) has been judicially interpreted to mean restrictions that are minimal only to the extent absolutely necessary and proportionate to the purpose of the restriction Given these constitutional tests it is hard to justify a complete nationwide ban on the film as the CBFC directed The appellate tribunal’s order reversing the CBFC ban and permitting the film to be released with a 60-second disclaimer at the start and end coupled with the deletion of a few scenes where the protagonist proclaims he is god is a more reasonable approach If promoting obscurantism and superstition is a concern as it appears to have been for the CBFC when it banned MSG then television is doing far more damage than films It has spawned a whole industry of godmen feeding 24×7 on gullible audiences One godman ensconced on a mock throne prescribes gastronomical solutions for wideranging worldly worries and charges a few thousand rupees to every entrant paying obeisance at his “durbar” One devotee sued him when he got severe indigestion after following his prescription of a daily dose of kheer But the baba is unfazed and it’s business as usual on television An Indian audience goes to the theatres to watch a film in anticipation of a fantasy While watching a film there is willing suspension of disbelief While watching television at home it is not quite so People are likely to shrug off MSG and his supernatural stunts as being in the realm of fantasy A television audience is likely to be less discerning The Programme Code under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Rules 1994 proscribes shows that encourage “superstition and blind belief” It is worth examining why these provisions have not been invoked by the ministry of information and broadcasting for all these years As for the argument that MSG was provocative and could spark off a law and order problem the solution cannot be to ban the film The threat to law and order has to be a very serious one not the usual bluster of a handful of miscreants shouting slogans tearing down posters or disrupting screenings It is the state’s duty to uphold law and order and prevent goons from having a field day not to throw up its hands in helpless inertia As a footnote it is worth mentioning that the CBFC was once called the Censor Board By an amendment to the Cinematograph Act made in 1981 the name was changed to the Central Board of Film Certification The purpose of the amendment was to lean towards granting certification rather than censoring films While the CBFC’s concerns may have been justified the blanket ban was excessive The CBFC’s scissors can snip only within the confines of Article 19(2) The freedom of expression entails the right to make films both good and bad How good or how bad must be left not to the judgement of the censors but to that of the audience The writer is an advocate practicing in the Supreme Court of India and is author of ‘Facetsof Media Law’
