Until last night, there was an invitation to kill an “unislamic” professor. Is Facebook a social network for hate crimes?

It’s hardly Santaland but as Christmas approaches Montoo’s bakery, in a dingy lane in central Kolkata, is one of the city's hottest addresses.

India's forgotten Chinese internment
In 1962 India and China went to war for a month. But India interned thousands of Chinese for years. There have never been any reparations. Neither has there been an apology. Most Indians know nothing about this chapter in their history.
