He Named Me Malala: The Ordinary Life Behind an Extraordinary Girl
Malala Yousafzai

David Guggenheim’s documentary captures Malala’s everyday life as both a young teenager and a global activist through poignant and often humorous interview scenes. Malala is followed around her home, through school, to television interviews and global summits to spread her message of educational equality.

 

Turkey’s Authoritarian Drift
Mustafa Akyol

This power transfer from the secular minority to the religious majority could have been a historic accomplishment, had it taken the form of national reconciliation — as many liberals, including me, naïvely hoped. Yet gradually, especially in the past three years, it took the form of revenge, intoxication with power and paranoia. There was a series of witch hunts, relentless intimidation, and even confiscation of critical media outlets.....

Maldives: A Nation in Freefall
Yameen Rasheed

This year witnessed the largest anti-government protests in Maldivian history. The government responded with the biggest political crackdown in over a decade. The entire opposition political leadership remains under arrest or in exile. And now, yet another vice president is in prison over his alleged involvement in a speedboat explosion on September 28. …

 

Shah Rukh Khan’s Voice Can Carry and Gain Traction — If We Let It
Shahrukh Khan

Is an artist representative of a religion, community, caste, class and, of course, craft? Can you separate one part from the whole? Within that second question lies the dispiriting fact that the two seem to be increasingly twinned, the pitch rising in venom and hysteria with each passing day. The poisonous fallout, being played out in the public domain, is to the detriment of us all.

The Economist Explains: Why Burmese Monks Accuse Aung San Suu Kyi Of Being An Islamist

…In central Myanmar, monks have reportedly been warning voters that the NLD wants to turn Myanmar into a Muslim country. Wirathu, a Ma Ba Tha-affiliated monk from Mandalay, says that the NLD cares more about Muslims than about Burman Buddhists, the country’s biggest ethnic and religious group. Where do these accusations come from, and do they have any validity?

 

America’s Broken Pakistan Policy
Brahma Chellaney

The paradox is that those in Washington who worry about a rogue commander in Pakistan seizing control of a nuclear bomb seem oblivious to the fact that the Pakistani military has already become radicalized and that the ISI has turned rogue, with its jihadist rampages spawning more dangerous Islamists.

 

Modi’s India…Pakistan’s Opportunity
Ayaz Amir

To sum up, Narendra Modi is a godsend to Pakistan. More power to Hindutva, more power to the saffron Nazism of the RSS, the spiritual fountainhead before which the Indian prime minister bows. If we master our internal weaknesses, expand the sphere of enlightenment and tolerance, there is nothing that we have to fear from any other quarter.

 

India Should Replace Secularism with Sufism: Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education, Jammu & Kashmir
Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education, J&K

Earlier, the program started with a theme presentation by Prof Naseem Ahmad Shah, who also moderated the session. It was followed by Ali Zahiri Tousi’s Sufism and its Cultural Manifestations, Sultan Shahin’s India and its Vibrant Sufi Connect and Prof Hameed Naseem Rafiabadi’s  How do we Preserve and Promote the Values Enshrined in Reshi-Sufi way.

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?
Pervez Hoodbhoy

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.
