Kulbhoshan Yadav’s case: Why ICJ will not give decision in favor of Pakistan?

1396/6/25 | 14:01
  Pakistan will demolish India’s “mischievous designs and motive”. India presented a memorial (petition) before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Wednesday, through which it is trying to divert the international community’s attention from the real issue, while trying to bring out the ‘humanitarian’ aspect in the case of its alleged spy Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has confessed to carrying out subversive and terrorist activities inside Pakistan.     The government also found fault with Washington’s ...

1396/6/22 | 14:01

The two-front war: Is India going to commit a grave blunder of history?

1396/6/18 | 14:01
  The Indian army chief’s controversial remarks of ‘two-front war’ with China and Pakistan have triggered a new controversy to which Beijing reacted sharply and now the state media issues a stern warning to New Dehli.   Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat statement came just a little over a week after China and India ended their two-month long border standoff in the Doklam area. In it’s editorial Global Times said, “while many people believe it is time to leave the episode of the border standoff behind, Rawat has sent ...

Will the BRICS declaration prompt a rethink in Pakistan's corridors of power?

1396/6/17 | 14:01
  Most recently, when the BRICS countries pointed to three specific groups in Pakistan and labelled them as terrorist entities, they were only echoing what the UN Security Council had done more than a decade and a half ago.     Still the line came up that ‘these groups are already proscribed in Pakistan’, as a rationale or soft justification for the fact that the groups not only exist, but operate freely and openly, propagate their literature in society, operate giant administrative operations, and in some cases, are ...

BRICS and the ‘Muslim terrorism’

1396/6/17 | 14:01

Israel sells arms to Myanmar despite Junta’s genocide against Muslims

1396/6/16 | 14:01
  Israeli regime continues to sell arms to Myanmar's junta despite reports that Buddhist country's crimes against minority Rohingya Muslims is amounting to genocide.     Thousands of persecuted Rohingyas were slaughtered and burnt alive and some 100,000 more were forced to flee their burning villages to neighboring Bangladesh, many with bullet wounds, after Myanmar’s army launched a bloody offensive on northern Rakhine state on 25 August under the pretext of fighting militants.     But none of this has led to ...

BRICS declaration: Would China support India against JeM in United Nations ?

1396/6/16 | 14:01
  Let there be no doubt about it. The BRICS’ resolution on terrorist networks is a serious matter. So far only the US, India and Afghanistan had publicly accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorist groups.   Now the same view has been expressed by the BRICS countries albeit in a polite but unambiguous language. What should worry Pakistan is that even China – which had repeatedly blocked India’s attempts to have the JeM leader Masood Azhar put on a UN Security Council blacklist – has signed the resolution.      Just ...

BRICS joint declaration: Did China play from Indian side?

1396/6/14 | 14:01

The group called for an immediate end to violence in Afghanistan. “We, in this regard, express concern on ...

In Kashmir, parents try to find their militant sons before Indian forces get to them

1396/6/11 | 14:01
  On the eighth day after his son disappeared, Mohammad Munawar Dar’s phone rang. It was an Indian army officer with news that Dar couldn’t bring himself to believe.     The officer said he had information that Dar’s son Shakoor, 21, had joined the anti-Indian insurgency in Kashmir, the long-disputed Himalayan territory enduring its worst outbreak of violence in years.     Dar never thought that Shakoor, who was studying to be an Islamic preacher, would take up arms. After Shakoor went missing, Dar had searched ...

New Cold war: Indo-US-Afghan VS Pak-Sino-Russian axis

1396/6/10 | 14:01
  Pakistan in a sign of growing maturity, is taking a firm leaf out of the US book on diplomacy and alliance building. Meaning that it is putting national interests first and is not afraid to shop around to secure those.       And so it was that this week that Pakistan took receipt of four advanced attack helicopters, or Mi-35M. This is not insignificant. For it was only back in 2014 that Moscow lifted its arms embargo against this country, which had been in place since the beginning of the Soviet-Afghan war. Fast-forward ...

Unabated nuclear expansion: Why India is leading towards a Chernobyl like incident?

1396/6/8 | 14:01
  An inherent bias towards India over Pakistan has led the world to turn a virtual blind eye to New Delhi’s alarming nuclear expansion, which poses a threat to world peace and security.   Dr Mansoor Ahmed said that India was aiming to become a major nuclear player in the world and was thus exponentially expanding its nuclear and delivery capabilities.   “The central pillar of their strategy is their ability to produce greater quantities of unguarded (not covered under International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards) ...

Movement of Shame: How a Guru makes India hostage

1396/6/6 | 14:01
  The world’s largest democracy has an image problem. When it comes to women. Or rather when it comes to taking men to task for crimes committed against women.   Over the weekend an Indian court found guilty of rape a self-styled spiritual leader. It was a long journey to get here. Fifteen years to be exact. Though this was not due to judicial laxity. But, rather, to the power wielded by Ram Rahim, leader of the Dera Sacha Sauda religious sect. The journalist who first reported the rape allegations was found fatally shot not long ...

A calculated reply: Pakistan’s diplomacy stuns mighty US

1396/6/5 | 14:01
  Foreign Minister Khawaja Muham­mad Asif will next week embark on a three-nation regional tour for consultations on the new American policy for Afghanistan and South Asia.     The foreign minister’s previously scheduled trip to the US for bilateral talks with his counterpart, Rex Tillerson, has been delayed for the regional tour.     The regional trip, Pakis­tani diplomats believe, will send a strong message to the US that Pakistan cannot be coerced and that the country enjoys broad support in the region.   Both Moscow ...

India rejects Trump’s plea on Afghanistan

1396/6/2 | 14:01
 India has tacitly dismissed US President Donald Trump’s plea that India should do more in Afghanistan because it made billions of dollars in trade with America.   A statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi, however, also made it clear that India would continue to help Afghanistan, because people of the two countries shared ‘traditional friendship.’   “We have been steadfast in extending reconstruction and development assistance to Afghanistan in keeping with our traditional friendship with ...

When Israel stabbed India

1396/5/29 | 14:01
    After the end of the 50-year-long myth of Cold War in 1991, the Zionist Mafia needed a new enemy to replace Communism. What could be better than Muslims who hate West for blindly supporting the Zionist entity.   On September 16, 2001, former US president George Bush used the term ‘War on Terrorism’ – coined by his Jew speech writers (Noam Neusner or David Frum) which the Jewish-owned media turned into War on Islam.   Palestine-born German Jewish author, human rights activist and a renowned musician Elias ...

What US has gained by declaring Hizbul Mujahideen as Global terrorist?

1396/5/28 | 14:01
  US State Department declared the Hizbul Mujahideen a Foreign Terrorist Organisation and a Specially Designated Global Terrorist.   Given that the Hizb is a separatist organisation focused on India-held Kashmir, it is not clear how disruptive the US actions will be in practice.     So why has the US taken this extravagant new step? A straightforward explanation has been offered in the Indian media itself. As argued in an opinion piece in The Indian Express, “For New Delhi, the US designation is strategic and political.      While ...

1396/5/27 | 14:01
    The United States' decision to declare Hizbul Mujahideen a specially designated terrorist organisation led by an internationally recognised terrorist is "saddening", the Foreign Office said on Thursday.    Nafees Zakaria said that Kashmiris' struggle for their right to self-determination has been rightfully continuing for the past 70 years. He said Indian occupation forces had used excessive force against people in India-held Kashmir and they are "continuing to do so".     The blacklisting of Hizbul Mujahideen ...

Baron Desai: China may attack India in September 2017

1396/5/20 | 14:01
  Gujarat-born Meghnad Desai, Labour Party member of the British House of Lords predicted that China may attack India if the later did not withdraw its army from the Bhutan-Sikim stand-off.     “Even today, nobody is contemplating that the whole Doklam thing could break anytime.

India vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Day 4: India beat Sri Lanka by 304 runs to take 1-0 lead

1396/5/8 | 14:01
The end was swift for Sri Lanka as India razed their lower order in the final session to register a massive 304-run win on Day 4 of the Galle Test and take 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Needing 550 runs to win, Sri Lanka were all out for 245 with two batsmen absent-hurt. India recorded their biggest away win, in terms of run-margin, while it's Sri Lanka's biggest defeat at home. With Dimuth Karunaratne (97) and Niroshan Dickwella (67), Sri Lanka would have hoped for taking the Test in to the final day after being 192/4 at tea-break. ...

Saudi Arabia, India or the US – who is conspiring against Nawaz Sharif and why?

1396/5/5 | 14:01
  At the beginning of this month, the government found itself in something of a pickle. Regardless of a dubious WhatsApp call fiasco and alleged political proclivities of the joint investigation team (JIT) members, the Sharifs had failed miserably in elucidating a tangible money trail for their opulent assets abroad.      To truly offset the velocity of the storm they faced, they would have to counter attack with something far more potent and invidious – something powerful enough to offset the damning reality of their inconclusive ...

Hindu nationalism risks pushing India into war with China

1396/4/30 | 14:01

China ‘Ready’ for Long-Term War With India

1396/4/28 | 14:01
Chinese forces are holding an increasingly large series of live-fire training drills in Tibet, reflecting soaring tensions with neighboring India, while Chinese state media outlets suggest the nation is gearing up for a possible “long-term confrontation” with India over the border region.   The tensions center on the border region of China, India, and Bhutan. China was trying to build a road in remote Dokola, when Indian ground troops streamed across the border to stop them.

Israel’s diplomatic expansion in the face of Arab retraction

1396/4/27 | 14:01
One of the manifestations of the fragmentation of the Arab nation is the decline of the Palestinian cause on the list of regional government priorities.   Palestine was the focus of the Arab unity project from the start of the occupation nearly seventy years ago, but no more. There are many reasons for this decline, including US hegemony in the Middle East and the evil alliance against the Arab people and their aspirations. This has pushed many Arab countries not only to abandon the Palestinian cause, but also to seek normalisation with ...

Should Pakistan allow Jhadav’s mother to Pakistan?

1396/4/25 | 14:01
Pakistan is mulling issuing a visa to the mother of Indian spy Khulbushan Jadhav on compassionate grounds. Pakistan has not given this issue even a second thought. And so plays out contradicting stories from the media of both countries.   Pakistan would do well to tread very carefully. Already its overt use of the death penalty is under review at the United Nations. The concern here is that this has prompted the country’s apparent U-turn. Meaning that once the spotlight fades as the country gets down to the snail-paced business regarding ...
