Is this the end of Gandhi dynasty in India?

1396/10/1 | 16:57
  As 47-year-old Rahul Gandhi becomes the sixth member of his family to head the 132-year-old Congress Party, I argue that a combination of circumstances and personal qualities will make it hard for Gandhi to claw his way back to power. Of course, South Asia isn’t the only part of the world where political dynasties bloom. (Just ask Justin Trudeau or Shinzo Abe.) But until recently the region has provided a handful of families exceptionally hospitable conditions in which to pass down power like a family heirloom.   Should Rahul ...

More US lawmakers line up to derail Trump’s $110bn arms deal with Saudi

1396/3/8 | 16:57
  US President Donald Trump’s massive $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia faces a bleak future in Congress as more lawmakers raise questions about the regime's atrocities in Yemen. Trump signed the multi-billion dollar deal with Saudis during his maiden overseas trip to Riyadh last week, boasting that it was going to make and save “billions of dollars and millions of jobs” in the US. Besides fighter jets, warships and other weapons, the deal also included precision guided munitions (PGMs), the sale of which was halted last ...

Kashmir plebiscite: Would BJP listen sane voices in India?

1395/5/5 | 16:57

Administration is divided and the government, which should support people, is using weapons against them.”Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are in a coalition ...

Shrinking space: The appalling state of Indian minorities

1395/3/26 | 16:57
 The Human Rights Commission of the US Congress on Tuesday expressed concerns over the growing violence against minorities in India. Joseph R Pitts, Co-Chairman of the Commission noted growing ties between the United States and India in different sectors but said these relations have failed to take note of the rising tide of human rights violations in India. “Many of these developments, certainly positive, have overlooked a troubling array of human rights concerns that should give us a pause,” said the Congressman. Lynching of Muslims ...

Indian lobbying: Pakistan losing charm for US

1395/2/12 | 16:57
 Several members of the US Congress launched on Wednesday a multi-pronged attack on Pakistan, questioning its policies and priorities. Pakistan had to bear this humiliation for the $742 million that the Obama administration has proposed for the country in the next fiscal year. The lawmakers suggested using this money somewhere else. Two US officials, Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Olson and US Agency for International Development’s Donald Sampler, made feeble attempts to defend the proposed aid but they could ...

A ticking bomb: US terms Pakistan a potential threat

1394/10/26 | 16:57
 Observing that "instability will continue for decades" in many parts of the world including Afghanistan and Pakistan, US President Barack Obama on Wedensday said both al-Qaida and ISIS pose a direct threat to the US during his final State of the Union Address to the Congress. "Both al-Qaida and now ISIL pose a direct threat to our people, because in today's world, even a handful of terrorists who place no value on human life, including their own, can do a lot of damage," Obama said.

The march will start from Parliament House and party leaders are expected to ...

Address to congress: Would pope leave an impact on the US political agenda?

1394/7/7 | 16:57
Pope Francis dove into some of the United States' thorniest political debates during his historic visit by urging the world's wealthiest nation to welcome immigrants, to end homelessness and do more to address climate change. Sometimes his political messages were blunt, like when he pleaded before the U.S. Congress for Americans to end "hostility" toward immigrants. Other times, they were more subtle, like the climate-conscious pope's decision to ride around in a tiny Fiat rather than a gas-guzzling SUV. Shortly before arrival, Francis denied he ...

Failed to sabotage Iran Nuclear deal: Has the AIPAC lost its clout?

1394/6/23 | 16:57
 It is hard to exaggerate the damage inflicted on AIPAC by the congressional defeat of its efforts to torpedo the Iran nuclear deal. It is not as if AIPAC won’t live to fight again, because it will, but this defeat has ruptured the status quo, possibly forever.  The extent of its efforts to defeat the deal was unprecedented even for a lobby known for its no-holds-barred wars against past White House initiatives it considered unfriendly to Israel, going all the way back to the Ford administration. AIPAC, and its cutout Citizens For A Nuclear ...

Communal violence: Modi distorting image of secular India

US-Iran deal: Let the congress exhaust

1394/2/23 | 16:57
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency)-Republicans who are determined to sabotage the emerging nuclear agreement between Iran and the major powers wanted to pile on a number of problematic amendments but debate on them was precluded because of party infighting.The rationale for Congress to get involved in approving the Iran deal is perhaps a unique one: that Congress had initiated some of the economic sanctions on Iran—the harshest ones yet—that would be lifted in connection with the agreement. Other sanctions, imposed by the administration and ...

US-Iran deal: Congress playing in the hands of Zionist lobby

1394/2/17 | 16:57
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency) Members of Congress said they remained unconvinced after Secretary of State John Kerry and other administration officials on Monday briefed them on nuclear negotiations with Iran. Republicans overwhelmingly oppose the framework agreement, arguing Congress should have a say on any final deal. Corker who proposed a bill against the dead said that he believes his bill to require congressional approval can withstand a threatened presidential veto. The bill also would prevent President Barack Obama from easing ...
