it out’ (IE August 22) One wonders whether it makes any sense for the Central Board of Film Certification to continue in these days of unrestrained internet access The CBFC’s brand of “certification” has become synonymous with censorship The editorial suggested an alternative body that is equidistant from industry and government But in this era of a free-flowing information the taxonomy of “A” “U/A” and “U” films is bizarre It all boils down to whether a film is worth watching or not And a government body need not tell me that — JP George (Pune) The Central Board of Film Certification needs to be reformed The board is functioning like a watchman It is frankly not capable of critically appreciating and appraising films and their artistic merit The government must not have any right to ban or edit the content of a movie This is the right of the filmmaker alone A new board should be formed for film certification which simply divides movies into three categories: those that are fit to be viewed by children those that are fit to be viewed by teenagers and last those intended only for adult consumption — JM Yogeshchandrasinh (Rajkot) A tired ritual This refers to ‘Toll in Himachal bus

democracy in peril in Pakistan yet again — Ashok Goswami (Mumbai) For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsFew in India will have heard the name Bilal el-Berjawi A British citizen of Lebanese origin he was radicalised in the post-9/11 wave of extremism – like hundreds of other young British Muslims lured by al-Qaeda’s growing appeal at the time And then one day he was killed Not in London but thousands of miles away near Mogadishu Somalia Hit by a deadly missile fired from an American drone blasting his car to smithereens It was the manner of his death that made him posthumously famous; and he became the subject of an anxious debate on America’scontroversially opaque counter-terror drone programme dreamt up by the Bush administration – and since vastly expanded by President Obama who saw it (still does) as a cheaper and more effective alternative to a an expensive ground operation Representational image AP That debate has been reignited this week with the release of a cache of classified US intelligence documents by The Intercept an online platform co-founded by Green Glenwald rights activist and journalist who collaborated with Edward Snowden on exposing the British-US secret surveillance programme The documents were provided to it by an anonymous whistleblower identified only as a “source” in the American intelligence community who ran the type of operations detailed in the documents And Bilal features prominently in these papers referred to as “Objective Peckham” the codename given tohim by his American intelligence handlers in a nod to the London suburb where he lived Bilal’s case according to The Intercept typifies all that has gone wrong with the drone programme “The story of Berjawi’s life and death raises new questions about the British government’s role in the targeted assassination of its own citizens — also providing unique insight into covert US military actions in the Horn of Africa and their impact on al Qaeda and its affiliate in the region al Shabaab” it says The programme started with Iraq and Afghanistan but has since spread to other terror hot- spots around the world and has effectively become the default weapon in US counter-terror armoury And yet until two years ago even its existence was even officially acknowledged It was only in 2013 that for the first time Obama publicly acknowledged its existence but with a robust defence saying: "America does not take strikes to punish individuals We act against terrorists who pose a continuing and most imminent threat to the American people" And then he made a claim whose hollowness is laid bare by the new revelations He said: "And before any (drone) strike is taken there must be near certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured – the highest standards we can set" That boast now sounds more a like a joke in the light of “The Intercept Drone Papers” whose significance puts them almost in the same league as the WikiLeaks’ disclosure of classified US diplomatic cables and the Snowden papers American rights activists have hailed them as “a blow on behalf of transparency and human rights” with Snowden describing them as "the most important national security story of the year" So what do these papers reveal Just one statistic is enough to damn the programme and blow a hole in American claims about its safety and efficiency And it is this: in a recent five-month period in Afghanistan 90 percent of those killed in drone attacks were not the intended target In another case a review of a mission called Operation Haymaker revealed that between January 2012 and February 2013 more than 200 people in northernAfghanistan were killed But only 35 were intended targets The papers suggest that similar operations in Somalia and Yemen where reliable intelligence is even more limited than in Afghanistan drone attacks have claimed a much larger number of innocent lives than American has admitted That innocent civilians frequently get killed is well-known but what is new and startling is the high rate of mistaken casualties Add to these the so-called "collateral damage" – people who die because they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time – and it becomes obvious that the whole operation is out of control Obama’s alleged "highest standards" may exist on paper but in practice clearly they appear to have been observed more in the breach To add insult to injury the unintended casualties are officially recorded as "EKIA" (enemies killed in action) thus branding even innocent casualties as enemy combatants to justify the attack The intended targets are described as "jackpots" Questioning the apparently casual manner in which such deadly strikes are made The Intercept’s source said "It’s never considered: Is what we’re doing going to ensure the safety of our moral integrity Of not just our moral integrity but the lives and humanity of the people that are going to have to live with this the most’’ The papers which cover the period 2011-2013 purport to show that most often the attacks are based on poor intelligence end up killing a disproportionately large number of civilians and there is no accountability The Intercept’s source is reported saying that those running the programme have been extremely reliant on signal intelligence “sigint” with little or no first-hand human intelligence “humint” on the ground “It requires an enormous amount of faith in the technology that you’re using” the source said One American official has claimed that The Intercept cache relates to a limited period before Obama’s 2013 speech and “offers only a very narrow snapshot of these operations’’ A contention rejected by rights campaigners who are demanding an independent inquiry into the alleged lack of accountability and transparency revealed by the documents “These documents raise serious concerns about whether the USA hassystematically violated international law including by classifying unidentified people as ‘combatants’ to justify their killing” said Naureen Shah of Amnesty International USA while the American Civil Liberties Union called the disclosures “a mockery of US government claims that its lethal force operations are based on reliable intelligence and limited to lawful targets” The disclosures are likely to put pressure on Britain to explain its role in facilitating Bilawal’s execution which followed shortly after London had revoked his British passport in what The Intercept suggests was “a tactic” to wash its hands of any responsibility for a man Americans had in their sight At the time The Economist posed a series of questions which have remained unanswered: “Who was Berjawi What threat did he pose Was the British connection a coincidence or a cool calculation Did British politicians have any knowledge of the action" The debate is not about Britain’s alleged complicity in one individual’s death but its broader role in propping up a secretive and according to many an illegal American operation As Kat Craig of the British human rights groupReprieve argues “Our government cannot be involved in secret executions If people are accused of wrongdoing they should be brought before a court and tried That is what it means to live in a democracy that adheres to the rule of law” Feel like clearing the air Prime Minister Cameron
