Rusticating Dreams: Open Letter to Rohith Vemula, the Dalit Research Scholar of Hyderabad University who committed suicide
Shiv Visvanathan

I want to begin with this everyday sense of neglect because those who capture you for the headlines are taxidermists of the moment; they freeze a life into a second and forget that sense of being that made you what you were: A man who cared, a man who protested, who believed that protest and research went together, that being from a backward class meant being more than backward....

 

India has given Pakistan a long rope. A number of balls are up in the air. Gen Sharif has to decide whether jihad or India is the real threat. After investing huge political capital Mr Modi has realised that sustained engagement with Pakistan is the only viable option. But to make it work, he must carry a big stick backed by a strong internal security architecture.....

 

In The Aftermath of Pathankot
DC Pathak

The wishy-washy response of Pakistan to India’s no-nonsense stand that the resumption of India-Pakistan dialogue will happen only when decisive action is taken against Maulana Masood Azhar and his lieutenants of the Jaish-e-Mohammed has made Indian public opinion allergic to a possible repeat of what happened after the Mumbai terror attacks....

Pakistan Arrests Jaish Militants over Attack on Indian Air Base

“The objective obviously was to derail the Pak-India peace process,” said Ayesha Siddiqa, a Pakistani security analyst. “There could be nervousness after Indian P.M. Modi’s visit to Lahore.” She agreed that moving against Jaish-e-Muhammad, which was strongly suspected in the attack, was an important gesture......

 

Denialistan: Top 10 Excuses Pakistan Trots Out After Terrorist Attacks On India
Chidanand Rajghatta

Pakistan’s long history of bleeding India with a thousand cuts follows a familiar pattern. Deny, defy, and mollify are the main aspects of its terrorism policy. Here are the top 10 excuses and explanations that Pakistan, also known as Denialistan, wheels out every time it is in the international spotlight for initiating yet another terror strike against India.

 

Mufti Sayeed Believed That Politics Was The Art Of The Possible
Barkha Dutt

Mufti was an old-style politician, uncomfortable with the noise of television, the intrusion of the camera and the easy, lazy judgments of social media. Most of our conversations, like this one, were face-to-face - and informal.

A Dream Called Akhand Bharat
Tahir Mahmood

India has never forgiven the creation of Pakistan, and Pakistan has always looked at India as an enemy. After all these years, mutual mistrust and misgivings have not died out. Every sincere attempt at reconciliation and peaceful relations falls flat. Despite a Nehru-Liaquat Pact, a Simla, an Agra, and so on, political policies on both sides have kept the strife alive.

Muslims Don’t Need An Iran-Saudi War

As if the Middle East did not have enough tension, a new one has been added with the New Year: An Iran-Saudi clash, which has already deep roots, that further escalated with Saudi Arabia’s execution of prominent Shiite cleric and activist Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr. ...

Counter-Terrorist Operations: What The Public Must Be Sensitized About
Syed Ata Hasnain

Hopefully the operations will terminate shortly (no expected timelines). I need to sign off with a comment on an oft repeated issue in media reports on 3 January. This relates to the Home Minister’s statement complimenting the success of the security forces and appreciating their valor. I explained on a channel that this must be viewed contextually. The operations by our valorous men in arms have prevented a disastrous situation which could have been akin to losses of the Pakistan Navy and Pakistan Air Force in the not so distant past. A couple of fighter aircraft and helicopters on fire and viewed by international audiences would have cut a very poor image of our security forces. Loss of lives is indeed regrettable but in this cruel world images make for perceptions and it is perception that we battle more than half the time.

 

Common Cause In Kabul
Khaled Ahmed

The Pashtun ruling Afghanistan from Kabul hate Pakistan; the non-Pashtun of northern Afghanistan hate Pakistan even more for Pakistan unleashing the Taliban on them in the past. The proxy war against India has not paid off and doesn’t wash with the people at home any longer, not even the fabrication about “dozens of Indian consulates” in Afghanistan. ...

 

A Welcome’s Hopeful Afterglow
Mehmal Sarfraz

From a Pakistani perspective, an Indian Prime Minister visiting Pakistan after almost 12 years is a positive sign to a certain extent. A strong BJP government led by an extremely conservative leader like Mr. Modi is capable of delivering peace with Pakistan because its nationalist credentials will not come into question while the Congress always had to tread with caution. In Pakistan, a conservative Punjabi leader like Mr. Sharif can also afford to do the same. ...

Namaste Lahore! What Modi's Visit Means For Pakistan
Mehr Tarar

In the context of the relationship between Pakistan and India, much has happened in this over-in-a-jiffy year, and just as the naysayers were in a titter-mode, marking 2015 as another year of failed attempts to establish a working equation between the two countries, there was the Modi visit to Lahore.

 

Why ISIS Can't Make Much Headway With Muslims In India
Abhinav Pandya

When PM Modi says that Indian Muslims will not join global Jihadi extremism in any significant numbers, I believe that more than a strong prime minister he is speaking as a wise leader who understands his people. In my own explorations of the subject, I have also found that the Indian Muslim's reluctance to resort to extremism is grounded in India's civilisational roots of harmony, tolerance, mysticism and diversity.

Secure The Line Of Commerce With Pakistan
Afaq Hussain

Cross-LoC trade need not be considered only from an economic prism as there is a deeper political benefit as well, which was the essence behind initiating this trade as a CBM. The current political discussions have created the right environment to place cross-LoC trade in the overall economic agenda between India and Pakistan and eventually take this initiative beyond being a mere CBM.

 

Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan, The Creator of Pure Music with Clear Intellect
Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan

On the occasion of Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan Saheb’s 43rd death anniversary, I pray to my father and guru, like every day. May his soul rest in peace. As I have written in my memoir about Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan (1877-December 28, 1972) that for me, the seven notes of music were him. He was the epitome of music. He was my inspiration, my reason of perspiration and he was my idea of representation.

 
Christmas in The Ummah
Tunku Varadarajan

Christmas in The Ummah
Tunku Varadarajan

The Saudis export their theo-imperialist brand of Islam to murderous effect — as Paris, London, New York, Madrid, Mumbai, Bali, Raqqa, Beirut, Timbuktu, Tunis, Nairobi, Garissa, Bangkok and San Bernardino can testify. And yet, they prohibit the public practice of any faith other than Islam on their own territory.

In The Line of Fire
Khaled Ahmed

A liberal has the fatal tendency to find his locus in the middle of things. When two extreme factions are drawn out against each other, he stands in the middle and gets thrashed from both sides. In times of high collective emotion, he runs the risk of losing his life. That’s why he is usually in retreat when faced with a conflictual situation. He rarely agrees with fellow liberals. There’s nothing new about him since John Stuart Mill made liberalism look like a creed.
