The film is directed by Darren Aronofsky who has previously helmed Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream Indeed Mother seems like a typical Aronofsky film if we judge the upcoming film by its trailer Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem are a happy and loving couple in an isolated house until their life is altered by an unexpected arrival of strangers beginning with the brilliant Ed Harris and followed by Michelle Pfeiffer Unsettling music from a percussion instrument pervades the trailer as scary looking strangers barge into the couple’s home and Jennifer Lawrence realises that her husband is involved This is not your typical horror fare Darren Aronofsky is known for playing with his protagonist’s mind and has delivered several psychological hits over the years The people who make themselves comfortable (and Lawrence’s character uncomfortable) in the couple’s home seem to be part of a cult and here is where the film is similar to Get Out directed by Jordan Peele that was released earlier this year Get Out also started harmlessly enough fooling the viewer into complacency and then degenerated into chaos It would be interesting to see what the nature of the invaders are

legal case against Doniger for four years suddenly folded saying that it would be difficult to continue defending Doniger Related News These are grim times for scholars who study India For years in both India and the US the RSS and its allies have bullied and attacked scholars of ancient history and religion who do not portray the past and the gods according to their narrow orthodoxy What is different now is that the politics of fear is in the ascendant People previously committed to open scholarship and public debate are running for the hills And now with the withdrawal and pulping of Wendy Doniger’s The Hindus: An Alternative History the bullies have scored a major victory Penguin after fighting the legal case against Doniger for four years suddenly folded saying that it would be difficult to continue defending Doniger without “deliberately placing themselves outside the law” — the law in question being Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code which forbids “deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class of citizens” Penguin’s claim is ridiculous The lawsuit is extremely weak It is poorly written and argued contains absurd errors (even the purported quotes from the book are inaccurate) and its attempt to satisfy the law’s demand for malicious intent is childish — accusing Doniger a secular Jew of “Christian missionary zeal” and suggesting that her historically accurate references to sexual elements in the tradition were motivated by her being “a woman hungry of sex” Ironically the parts of the book that according to the lawsuit show Hinduism in a bad light are simply parts that are true and there: the Hindu tradition is replete with non-judgemental allusions to a variety of sexual desires and activities including those of the gods whether the new Hindu fundamentalists like this or not So how could anyone be convicted of defaming a religion simply because she points to texts that some people would rather forget As Doniger said recently in The New York Times the shoe is on the other foot: it is they who say parts of their own religion are bad whereas she admires Hinduism’s treatment of sexuality as natural and beautiful Indeed even a cursory study of Doniger’s career would reveal a passionate love of Hinduism combined with scholarship of the highest order Doniger a woman of boundless energy humour and joie de vivre can be found teaching approximately double the required load so eager is she to make sure that the major texts are taught in their original languages She describes her career as motivated by a dissatisfaction with the narrowness and rigour of other religions and a fascination with Hinduism’s more variegated and tolerant portrayal of human beings and the conflicts they face — “the difficulty of being good” as Gurcharan Das put it in his book of that name written after spending two years at the University of Chicago studying Sanskrit with Doniger The case then was eminently winnable and Penguin’s attempt to hide behind the law is a transparent excuse for cowardly capitulation The real story is told in Penguin’s statement that they “have a moral responsibility to protect our employees against threats and harassment where we can” Fear of violence has won; the conglomerate caves before a vague (or perhaps not-so-vague) threat Such things have deplorably happened before This time however there is the prospect (on which the lawsuit’s primary plaintiff Dina Nath Batra waxes ecstatic in an interview to The New York Times) that the RSS will soon have the power to suppress all the books it doesn’t like What then of law Is Section 295A utterly irrelevant to the current dire situation of free speech and scholarship in India Certainly law does not explain Penguin’s failure to fight a winnable case But law I would argue is not nothing either: it does collaborate with the political situation opening a door through which bullies may walk with their heads held high Group defamation is a trendy topic in the law Particularly in Europe where incivility to minorities is distressingly common and well-meaning people want to protect their dignity it has become fashionable to defend such laws or urge their adoption where (as in the US) they are not yet present A particularly influential argument for group defamation laws was recently made by the eminent British legal scholar Jeremy Waldron in The Harm in Hate Speech Waldron’s concerns are admirable: equal respect and full inclusion How he asks can Muslim immigrants ever feel themselves fully equal citizens when a sign can be put up on a New Jersey street saying “Muslims and 9/11 Don’t serve them don’t speak to them and don’t let them in” (The example is apparently fictional) Waldron argues that the usual ways of dealing with such insults (non-discrimination laws social norms) are insufficient: the law must intervene ensuring that minorities have confidence that their dignity will not be assailed by public utterances Waldron focuses on dignity not offence; he thinks mere hurt feelings are insufficient grounds for legal regulation But he gives little guidance on how the distinction would be made nor does he convince us that judges in a polarised nation would be good line-drawers All such laws are vague in a way that allows the offended party ample scope to represent a statement a placard or a book as an assault on its dignity If a requirement of malicious intent is added that too is vague and such laws often give no guidance as to how to establish it The vagueness of the Indian statute gives a virtual invitation to bullies to use it to suppress whatever they don’t like This brings us to a second problem Although Waldron’s admirable concern is with the social inclusion of minorities group defamation laws throughout history have been overwhelmingly used by powerful groups to suppress dissident or heterodox voices: “a terrible track record” says legal scholar Michael McConnell reviewing Waldron’s book What else would one expect when the powerful passed the laws in the first place and typically control the judiciary that will interpret it A third problem is that when the topic is either sex or religion almost anything anyone says will offend someone Pluralistic societies contain puritans who feel sexual references demean their dignity and others who think that the suppression of sex removes a vital part of their dignity; they contain religions and strands within religions which harbour mutual suspicion and animosity Group libel laws according to Waldron make society safe for all groups What they really do is prevent all serious public debate or research on these touchy topics since someone somewhere is sure to feel insulted The suppression of Doniger’s book was not caused by Section 295A It was caused by bullying power politics and cowardice But law has given public sanctity to bad behaviour allowing Penguin to portray itself as law-abiding rather than egregious and allowing the plaintiffs to represent themselves as wounded citizens seeking justice rather than the ominous thugs they are In the US without such laws scholars of Hinduism have been threatened with violence But the thugs who threaten them put themselves outside the law and are investigated by legal authorities: scholar Paul Courtright’s house was staked out by the FBI after Hindu rightwing threats apropos of his book on Ganesha Policemen pay attention to law and so do law professors At the time the head of the HSS (the RSS’s American wing) was a law professor So far was Ved Nanda from hauling Courtright into court that he issued a public apology to him for the harassment in my hearing at a conference sponsored by Doniger and me at the University of Chicago (about democracy and the Hindu right shortly to appear as an edited book whether anyone in India will be able to read it or not) After all Nanda as a law professor had to be manifestly on the side of law Tough laws protecting free speech create social norms which make it impossible for a respectable law professor to defend such intimidation tactics Later when threats were directed toward employees of the Harvard University Press before the publication of my own 2007 book The Clash Within: Democracy Religious Violence and India’s Future I called Nanda and asked him to stop the people who were doing this — and the pressure stopped After all the bullies were on the wrong side of the law To my knowledge no work of scholarship on Hinduism has been suppressed in the US though many have been amply insulted Law in short is not everything but it is not nothing either Group defamation laws issue an invitation to thugs to suppress speech that they don’t like while representing themselves as the righteous ones Unfortunately in today’s political climate in India there are all too many people ready to take up this ugly invitation Martha C Nussbaum The writer Ernst

issued notices were the Chief Secretary Secretary Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Department and Secretary Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department Senior advocate P Wilson who appeared on behalf of the petitioner submitted that the counsel for the State Election Commission (SEC) had filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court that the elections would be held in July 2017 When the matter came up in the apex court the counsel sought extension of time but till date the state government has not taken any steps to go ahead and start the election process he contended He also cited the previous petitions filed by the DMK in this regard and the undertakings given by the Election Commission before the Supreme Court and high court The petitioner said from time to time the term of special officers were being extended by the state government The recent amendment to municipal laws extended the term of special officers up to December 31 he said “The net effect is that the state government is managing the constitutional bodies with the help of special officers under the garb of pendency of writ appeal and special leave petitions before the High Court and Supreme
