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.

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.

The Quint: DeQoded: Who and What is Behind The Spate of Killing In Bangladesh
A bloody hostage situation involving gunmen played out in Dhaka’s diplomatic area. A Hindu brutally hacked to death, the 5th murder in just a month. ISIS claiming responsibility for the killings. Not in Syria or Iraq. But next door in Bangladesh. Members of religious minorities, secular bloggers, academics, foreigners and gay-rights activist dozens of them have been killed in Bangladesh since 2013. So who and what’s really behind this? ISIS and some groups claiming links to al Qaeda have taken responsibility, but the government blames opposition parties and local extremist groups. Some government officials have blamed Israe some have even blamed the victims’ secular views! Is, as some allege, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina “in denial”? Is she playing politics instead actually tracking down the killers and the masterminds behind them? When her government did take action, it detained 11,000 suspects. How does that help? The spate of killings is apparently a response to the Shahbag protests of 2013 that were held against religious politics and demanded the death penalty for war crimes during Bangladesh’s 1971 war for independence. This angered Islamist extremists because four of the five executed were Jamaat-e-Islami leaders, the country’s largest Islamist political party. But the fight is bigger now – should Bangladesh remain secular, as enshrined in its constitution, or become an Islamic state like the erstwhile-West Pakistan, which it fought to break away from. For a country who’s national anthem was written by a Hindu Tagore who’s capital Dhaka takes its name from the city’s Dhakeshwari Devi temple which has been a great example of syncretic South Asian Islam this bloody radical turn does not bode well.
