1396/6/23 | 12:14

Hajj 2017 went well, but the Rohingya matter not a jot in Saudi Arabia

1396/6/19 | 12:14
  The House of Saud will, no doubt, be quite pleased with itself that the Hajj 2017 has concluded without any setbacks or hitches worth reporting.   In fact, it will pat itself on the back rather cynically that in addition to a smooth, incident-free pilgrimage, its enormous team of bureaucrats — including intelligence and security forces — ensured that the compartmentalisation of the Hajj as a purely spiritual-religious ritual did not stray onto “other” areas, the “other” being politics.     Saudi Arabia ...

Rohingya’s prosecution is genocide not xenophobia

1395/11/24 | 12:14
  The recent released report compiled by the UN reveals a shocking picture of the abuse and violence faced by the beleaguered Rohingya minority in Myanmar. The narrative in Myanmar is that the Rohingya are not ‘sons of the soil’ and are ‘illegal immigrants’ from Bangladesh. Even if this debatable proposition was accepted, would it justify the atrocities the Rohingya have been subjected to? The state of Myanmar, especially supposed human rights champion Aung San Suu Kyi, must investigate the claims highlighted by the report. ...

1395/10/30 | 12:14

No end to ordeal: Myanmar’s barren democracy and plight of  Rohingya Muslim

1395/1/16 | 12:14
 On Thursday, Htin Kyan was sworn as Myanmar’s first civilian president. A trusted aide of Aung San Suu Kyi, he has urged patience for both Myanmar and the world.

Already, instead of moving forward, the ruling National League for Democracy has begun to give anti-democratic signals. It has declared ...
