Is Pakistan Doomed to this Mediocrity?
Ayaz Amir

Call it a diarchy – two strands of influence and decision-making – but it is working. Left to himself, Nawaz Sharif would have found it hard to resist the temptation of charging at windmills, this being his old, virtually uncontrollable propensity. He is being kept in check by the army. But the army is also being kept in check by democracy.

 
Win Pak-India Nuke War?

Win Pak-India Nuke War?
Pervez Hoodbhoy

Tactical nukes will not make Pakistan more secure. This dangerous programme should be immediately abandoned. Nukes may win a battle for us but at the cost of losing Pakistan. Instead our security lies in ensuring that Pakistan’s territory is not used for launching terror attacks upon our neighbours. ...

 

Separate, But Not Different: While India Takes Stock After Dadri, Pakistan’s Minorities Continue To Languish
Khaled Ahmed

In Karachi’s Jogi Morr in Qayyumabad there are slums where human beings live in excrement. The slum is worse than usual because the inhabitants are Hindus. It has been home to 4,000 Marwari-Gujaratis for the last 60 years. They must have moved to Karachi from the desert, their original home. Their leader, Krishan Bhandari, says the locality gets no water or electricity for days. “Our children left school because they don’t have identity cards as Hindus,....

 

What Happens When NYT Reports Our Shame
Aakar Patel

I was going through The New York Times (NYT) on 18 October, and there it was on the front page: “Indian writers spurn awards as violence flares”. A long report, with a photograph, on recent happenings in India, accompanied by a second item profiling the writers and their work. It was reported in detail and unambiguously specified where the blame lay.

Executing Mumtaz Qadri
Syed Kamran Hashmi

Executing Mumtaz Qadri
Syed Kamran Hashmi

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan upheld the death sentence of Mumtaz Qadri, a hero in the eyes of many religious zealots, who killed the then governor Punjab, Salmaan Taseer, while serving as a member of the police elite force appointed to protect him in 2011. Taseer was an outspoken critic of the blasphemy law.

Pakistan: Inching Towards Complete Army Domination
Syed Ata Hasnain

Sartaj Aziz, the suave and experienced diplomat who is Pakistan’s Foreign Minister and NSA, all rolled in one, is expected to make way in the appointment of NSA to Lt Gen Nasir Khan Janjua who has just superannuated after the command of 12 Corps, Quetta. He also wore the second hat of the Commander of Pakistan’s Southern Command, the most awkward of command and control arrangements which characterize Pakistan’s faction and ego ridden Army.

 

Pakistan's 'Truth' On Kashmir Is Mostly Argumentative
S.Mubashir Noor

For starters, Pakistan's "truth" on Kashmir is absolutely majoritarian. The "Dushman Hindustan" (Nemesis India) narrative is the national gospel and any political rhetoric wrapped around the "Kashmir banega Pakistan" (Pakistan will conquer Kashmir) chant preaches to packed crowds.

Nuclear Tango in Afghan Shadow
Rakesh Sood

The U.S.-Pakistan nuclear tango in the 1980s took place during the Cold War. Today, India-U.S. relations are qualitatively different and successive leaders in both countries have contributed to realising the potential of the newfound strategic partnership. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gone out of his way to build a personal rapport with President Obama, reflected in the frequent summit-level interactions.

 

What Is It Like To Be An Indian Muslim?
Aakar Patel

What is it like to live under segregation? I prefer that word to “ghettoization” because overuse has desensitized us to this second word. We no longer pause when we see “ghettoization” and reflect on what it means. It means a community that we have shunned and rejected as being unequal and unfit to reside with us.

Dear Mumbai, Here’s What You Can Learn From Karachi
Anahita Mukherji

On a Wednesday night in Mumbai, a young boy and his family from Karachi found themselves sleeping on the pavements because no hotel in town would allow them entry. My colleague, Mateen Hafeez, a tenacious crime reporter with a pulse on Mumbai’s grimy underbelly, wrote of how this family was denied entry to a dozen lodges and hotels because they were Pakistani....

 

India’s Great Educational Divide
Aatish Taseer

I spent the duration of the election shuttling between its crucible, in Eastern Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, and the drawing rooms of Delhi, where the political elite of the city, a cozy cabal of like-minded journalists and politicians, quaked at the rise of Mr. Modi. I had grown up in this world, and it was one in which class mattered much more than political difference. Nor was its cynicism confined to any one party. I remember being present when the son of a B.J.P. chief minister, a woman now in trouble over corruption, was asked why he wanted to enter politics. “Money,” he said easily, and no one minded. That was the kind of world it was. Mr. Modi posed a mortal threat to the safety and entitlement of this world, ....

 

Forget Hindu, Muslim
Javed Anand

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s sweet homily to the nation over the lynching of a Muslim in Dadri amounts to nothing more than preaching to the converted. That too reluctantly so, after 10 days of cajoling from innumerable quarters urging the country’s prime communicator to break his silence, and a day after President Pranab Mukherjee felt compelled to speak up and remind us of our “core civilisational values”.

India, Pakistan: Same to Same
Javed Anand

Laws banning beef are not new to India, but new beef-ban laws are to India what the obnoxious blasphemy law is to Pakistan. Human beings are killed in Pakistan in the name of the holy Prophet. In India, they are lynched in the name of the holy cow.

Is The PPP Dying?
Khaled Ahmed

Pakistan’s only “federal” political party, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), suffered a blow to its solar plexus when Asim Hussain was arrested in Karachi for corruption on August 26. An old schoolfellow of and personal physician to PPP boss Asif Ali Zardari, Hussain was federal petroleum minister in the PPP government till 2013.

 

Why And How Media Should Promote Peace Between Religious Communities
Endy M. Bayuni

Indonesia’s 70th anniversary this year is a celebration not only of our independence, but also of our diversity. How more than 250 million people, made up of different races, ethnicities, cultures, traditions, languages and faiths, have survived as one nation for seven decades is a question historians will have to answer.

Muslim vote must unite; Muslim voters must show wisdom; Bihar election will give direction to the nation; Secular parties should give a united fight; People of Bihar should support secular leaders; Is BJP going to gain from Majlis and Mulayam?  These are some of the headlines that are appearing every day in Inquilab, the Urdu daily published from 14 cities including Delhi and Patna.....

Misconceptions About Manto
Saadat Hasan Manto

Saadat Hasan Manto’s final days open a vista onto the creative struggle and state of chaos that plagued the short story writer. However, a touching tribute can do little to make a martyr of a man who is termed an anti-hero, even decades after his demise.

 

Francis, the Perfect 19th-Century Pope
Pope St. Francis

St. Francis is undeniably cool. He once worked as a nightclub bouncer in Buenos Aires. He got a serenade to “Frank, baby,” from his fan Stephen Colbert. He spurred nuns to have a tailgating party at Catholic U. before his Mass, inspired the Internet to erupt in photos of dogs sporting miters and persuaded a blubbering John Boehner that he would never have a day that good again.

 

Weed Out LeT and Its Sponsors to Boost India-Pakistan Ties
Shishir Gupta

During a meeting in New Delhi this month, the United Arab Emirates’ minister for foreign affairs, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, surprised the Indian side when he linked the birth of global terrorism to three cataclysmic events in 1979: The erstwhile Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan; the overthrow of Shah of Iran Reza Shah Pahlavi by cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; and the siege of the Holy Mecca shrine by ultra-orthodox Islamists known as Juhayman’s Ikhwan led by Juhayman al-Otaybi.

 

A Gay Muslim Filmmaker Goes Inside the Hajj

Growing up in the northern Indian city of Saharanpur, where Muslims made up a sizable minority, he was routinely bullied for being gay, Mr. Sharma said. He found solace in his mother’s Bollywood film magazines, spending hours cutting out pictures of his favorite stars to design posters for the fantastical movies he dreamed of making.

 

Think Morocco: Like France, India must explore cooperation with this strategic North African nation

Morocco has been championing a moderate version of Islam that is in consonance with the principles of twenty first century democracy. Under the guidance of monarch King Mohammed VI, the initiative is part of a well thought-out strategy to fight the scourge of Islamic extremism. For this purpose, the Mohammed VI Institute for the Training of Imams, Morchidines, and Morchidates – an 18 million euro facility – was opened in March this year. French imams will receive their training here.....
