speech on prosecution of terror cases and legal issues relating to terror propaganda over the Internet (Source: File Photo) Top News INDIAN AND US counter-terrorism agencies have agreed to make sharing of terror-related information on Internet communication better and quicker The latter have said they would part with such information with an urgency to requests made through the Emergency Disclosure Request (EDR) route However the information would be limited to developing intelligence of an immediate nature and dealing with imminent danger India had raised the issue of delay in sharing of information on terror-related Internet communication in a conference held in the national capital Security establishment sources said while the US expressed its limitations citing local laws it said it could share information immediately through the EDR route EDR it said was applicable only in cases where there was an immediate threat of a terror attack leading to the death of several people if the information was not shared and developed Sources said for routine investigation of terror cases Indian agencies would still have to go via the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty and follow due process of law as required by US courts These and other issues related to counter-terror measures were discussed during the “US-India Expert Workshop on Countering Terrorist Use of the Internet” jointly organised by the FBI the US Department of Justice and the NIA The workshop also saw the participation of Australia Belgium Bangladesh the UK and Japan among others US attorney Preet Bharara delivered a speech on prosecution of terror cases and legal issues relating to terror propaganda over the Internet “International terrorism is a threat to civilised society around the world so it is of critical importance for countries like ours two great democracies to work together in countering this global threat” Bharara said Sources said US authorities said they would be able to share content information (eg matter in an email) faster compared to non-content information (transactional subscriber information) that would involve legal issues “They expressed their inability to make it any better given the stress on privacy and free speech by the US legal system” an intelligence official who attended the event said The official added US representatives said they could not stop any material from going up on the Internet nor could they arbitrarily ask any service provider to take any content down Instead the source said US representatives said they were working with service providers and private players to use filters that would prevent content instigating terror activities from going up on the Web A number of countries facing the threat of terror being propagated through the Internet depends on the US for sharing of information since most top social media platforms have their servers there US representatives described legal hurdles and narrated a case to show that they themselves have to go through considerable trouble to get information The case sources said pertained to content on Facebook that could not be retrieved immediately as the data centre was in Ireland and the request was not in conformity with Irish law Almost all were in agreement that a massive effort was needed to launch a counter-narrative on social media to fight Islamic State propaganda US ambassador Richard Verma said “I would submit that part of the solution involves working with the private sector civil society media and religious leaders to disseminate alternative narratives These alternative narratives can counter terrorist propaganda for example by amplifying the stories of those who defect from terrorist organisations showcasing the life of misery as a foreign terrorist fighter and by highlighting the damage terrorists are inflicting on civilians and on Muslim communities in particular” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More

‘Mona Lisa of the North’ by Johannes Vermeer Related News Book- The Ring of Truth: Myths of Sex and Jewelry Author- Wendy Doniger Publication- Speaking Tiger Pages- 397 Price- Rs 899 Wendy Doniger’s latest book The Ring of Truth has 45 pages of notes and a 30-page index Yet it is so much more than a well-annotated and minutely referenced compendium of stories about rings lost and found about how jewelry can establish the identity of a person or jog a buried memory of love In Doniger’s agile mind and in her skilful hands these become stories as the very clever pun in the title suggests about truth and reality about how memory recognition and human consciousness work for the self and for the other The stories in the book come from many genres cultures and languages but the paradigmatic story here is Kalidasa’s Shakuntala — a story about an innocent forest girl who loses the ring of recognition that the king her ‘husband’ gives her and then is denied physical as well as psychic recognition on account of its absence When Dushyanta sees the ring many years later he remembers his lost love and travels through the three worlds to find her and the son that she bore him The child he encounters is proved to be his son through another piece of jewelry a band that he wears on his arm Eventually all memories are restored everyone is proved to be who they said they were and the family is reunited in love and happiness A crucial character in this story is the fish who swallowed the ring that went missing – the fish too becomes a motif in the ocean of stories that Doniger draws upon Doniger takes the many strands of Kalidasa’s story and weaves them into other stories from around the world indicating how they are alike or different from each other But unlike so many other gatherers of tales that resemble each other (Stith Thompson and Alan Dundes for example) Doniger does not care about a mere taxonomy Her interest lies not in what these stories tell us about themselves and each other but what they tell us about ourselves — how we think how we feel how we construct reality how we love those that we do and what it is both within and without ourselves that is lost when we lose our lovers and our memories Although she never leaves the world of classical mythology behind as the sutradhar who holds the thread of rings and memory Doniger takes us on a whirlwind tour of narratives from opera works from 19th and 20th century literature many contemporary works of fiction as well as to her other great love the movies In this volume we get (re)acquainted with the Celtic fairy Morgana Lancelot and Guinevere Tristan and Isolde Siegfried and Brunhilde various Shakespeare plays and a host of other lovers who are separated from each other who cheat on each other in moments of ring-induced forgetfulness who use rings and other personal objects to reveal their true identities or to unmask imposters There is also a fascinatingly detailed chapter about Marie Antoinette’s diamond necklace a rather large heavy and expensive piece of jewelry which though entirely non-existent took the allegedly extravagant and heartless queen to the guillotine Reminding us that even in the real world a piece of jewelry can be a potent symbol a metonym in fact for a person Doniger traces the story of this necklace-that-never-was through various historical sources The factually verifiable version that Doniger produces of the queens and knaves the kings and priests the cuckolds and mistresses that animate the saga of the necklace would put Alexander Dumas to shame Later in the book a corollary to this chapter about the Queen’s Necklace is a thoroughly enjoyable wise and witty takedown of De Beers the company that markets diamonds as ‘symbols myths magic’ (p259) Doniger tells us that The Ring of Truth actually split off from an earlier book for which she was collecting stories (The Woman who Pretended to be Who She Was 2004) And so it is that this book about rings of truth stays with many of Doniger’s favourite themes and recurrent concerns such as sexual masquerade and substitution Although she often refers to conventional Freudian readings of myth about real and imagined sexual encounters Doniger is not afraid to call some of these encounters between men and beguiled (and most often helpless) women ‘rape’ for that is what they more correctly are By analysing whatever devices of enchantment (curses disguises amnesia darkness fog) these stories use she brings the essential nature of the pivotal sexual encounter to our attention This persuades us to recognise how violence — emotional physical and sexual — against women is prevalent in all cultures hard-wired as it is into the stories that human beings love to tell over and over again Having said that this is hardly the point of the book which is anything but a feminist polemic against telling stories about women who lose their rings and are forgotten (or sometimes ‘misremembered’) by their lovers Rather it is a book that revels precisely in these stories and the myriad ways in which we tell them While the stories are often about sexual violence they are even more about the cognitive violence inflicted upon the self and the other by forgetting or by the wilful erasure of memory At a time when the danger of systematic cognitive violence against truth and memory is all too real it is comforting to read a book which reminds you that memories can be restored that truth can return to heal both life and love Arshia Sattar studied with Wendy
