The Quint: DeQoded: How The GST Bill Will Be Good For You
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is believed to be the single most powerful tax reform that India will see. The objective is to break down state boundaries and end the headache of multiple taxes. So Central Excise Duty, VAT, Service Tax, Swachh Bharat Cess, Octroi, Luxury Tax, Special Additional Duty, Entry Tax and so on will be substituted with one GST. To simply understand a very complex taxation system, we break-down the details. For sale within a state, currently we pay VAT, Excise Duty and Sales Tax. But under the new system, we will only pay a State GST (SGST) and Central GST (CGST). For sale outside the state, we pay a Central Sales Tax, Excise and a whole host of other local taxes. Under the new GST system of taxation, we will pay a fixed Integrated GST (IGST) which will be collected by the centre. For example, a phone manufactured in Tamil Nadu and sold in Punjab will cost the same if the phone were to be sold within Tamil Nadu. Under the current regime, hypothetically speaking, a 100 rupee phone manufactured in Chennai sent in a truck to Chandigarh through six states with each state levying tax plus the central taxes will cost 130 rupees by the time it reaches its destination. But Under GST, assuming the revenue neutral rate to be 18%, a 100 rupee phone manufactured in Chennai sent in a truck to Chandigarh will cost just 118 rupees by the time it reaches because we will pay one Integrated GST (IGST) to the central government. So GST aims to make India one unified market, provided all states implement GST and all states comply with the same rates. So while it is a tall order, it will need every state to come together to make it happen! Video: The Quint Music courtesy: BigBangFuzz

Melania Trump’s well-received speech on Monday at the Republican National Convention contained two passages that match nearly word-for-word the speech that first lady Michelle Obama delivered in 2008 at the Democratic National Convention. The passages in question focus on lessons that Mrs. Trump, the wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, said she learned from her parents and the relevance of their lessons in her experience as a mother. They came near the beginning of her roughly 10-minute speech, which was otherwise distinct from the address that Mrs. Obama gave when her husband, then-Sen. Barack Obama, was being nominated for President. Video courtesy: AP/C-SPAN Music courtesy: BigBangFuzz

The Quint: We Had Pinned Our Hopes on Ronaldo, Says Pepe
Substitute Eder’s thunderous finish deep into extra time secured Portugal’s first European Championship title after they overcame the early loss of Cristiano Ronaldo to snatch a 1-0 smash-and-grab victory over hosts France on Sunday. Eder picked the perfect moment to score his first competitive goal for his country, marauding forward before letting fly with a bullet shot from 25 metres in the 109th minute. It was a cruel blow for France, who had dominated the match from and squandered a number of chances, in front of their devastated home support, who arrived at the Stade de France hoping to celebrate a third European crown. The trophy was lifted by Ronaldo, who broke down in tears at the final whistle but whose game had come to a frustrating end after 24 minutes when he was carried crying from the pitch on a stretcher with a knee injury.

The Quint: 5 Kashmiri Militants Who Are Considered Heroes in the Valley
In early 90’s, it was a common sight in Kashmir to see youngsters with kalashnikov rifles in their hands. They were successful in winning hearts and minds of Kashmiris in general. As time passed, the people of Kashmir began distancing themselves from armed revolution, and it reflected in the dipping numbers of local militants. But in the second decade of the 21st century, Kashmiris have started celebrating the deaths of militants, giving them the stature of martyrs and heroes of the Kashmiri fight to attain freedom.

Dr Zakir Naik, “Terror Preacher” or “Messenger of Peace”?
Is the hate directed at Dr Zakir Naik by the Indian media representative of the problems faced by the Indian Muslim? An english-speaking preacher who explains the Quran to those who don’t understand Arabic, but can recite the book by heart. Suited-booted and much younger than most maulvis who enjoy the same status as him, Dr Zakir Naik jokes, provokes and answers just about any googly thrown at him to a rousing applause by his millions of followers. But most news channels that have discussed his sermons threadbare have labelled him a “Radical Preacher” or a “Terror Preacher”. He has 14 million followers on Facebook, but is banned in UK and Canada. So, to understand why someone who supposedly inspired an ISIS terrorist and is being sought by the NIA, is still worshiped by millions, we got some of his more ordinary supporters, who have zero stake in politics or the media to The Quint’s office. What followed was an sensitizing, eye-opening, myth-buster of a conversation. Music: Big Bang Fuzz

Opposition BSP and Congress today created uproar in Rajya Sabha, protesting against beating up of two Muslim women in Madhya Pradesh in the name of cow protection. No sooner had listed papers been laid on the table of the House, Mayawati (BSP) said after beating of dalit youths in Gujarat, ‘Gau Raksha’ (cow protection) groups beat up two women in Madhya Pradesh over suspicion of possessing beef.

She asked Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi to respond to targeting of women of his community in the name of cow protection. As she completed her submission, BSP members trooped into the Well of the House, shouting anti-government slogans. Congress members too joined them in the well. Ghulam Nabi Azad said Congress party was not principally against cow protection but was against targeting of dalits and Muslims in name of Gau Raksha. “Let it be very clear.

The Quint: Pak Played Key Role in Fomenting Trouble in Kashmir: Rajnath
Pakistan played a “key role” in fomenting the recent trouble in Kashmir and it was sponsoring terrorism in India, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. Observing that the situation in the Valley was “normalising” gradually, he singled out Pakistan for fomenting trouble there, saying it had played a “key role” in fuelling tension and that terrorism in India was sponsored by it. Referring to the ‘black day’ observed by Pakistan on the killing a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist in Kashmir, he said it has no right to interfere in India’s internal matters, but it was doing so to deflect attention from its failures as the people there were fighting along sectarian lines. “If there is terrorism in India, then it is Pakistan sponsored,” the Home Minister said. He also announced in Lok Sabha that an expert committee will be set up to recommend alternatives to pellet guns, a non-lethal weapon blamed for causing fatal injuries and blindness among protestors in Kashmir. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed security forces to maintain “maximum restraint”, he said, but added that it cannot be denied if someone had committed some mistakes. “We all feel sad over the lives lost and those injured,” Singh said. He also noted that “barbarism” can have no place in the society as some people had celebrated when some security personnel were killed. Referring to many members’ concerns over the use pellet guns, he said one person had died due to injuries caused by these weapons, while 53 suffered injuries in eyes. These guns, categorised as non-lethal, were used in 2010 as well when it had killed six persons and caused eye injuries to 98 with five suffering complete blindness, he said, rejecting criticism that security forces used them indiscriminately. Singh then announced that the government was considering alternatives to pellet guns. “We will form a committee of experts. It will see to it what non-lethal alternatives we can bring in place of pellet guns. It will give report in two months,” he said. Video: ANI Music: Big Bang Fuzz
