Dr. Ramesh Kumar Vankwani has said that Sufi, Saadhu, Jogi, and Saint are the unforgettable assets of our country who are not among us today, but still the impact of their preaching of peace, love for all, and serve humanity, could be observed in the forms of their shrines....

 

Uri Choice: Leadership in Difficult Times Should Be a Cold-Blooded Business
Praveen Swami

Leadership in difficult times should be a cold-blooded business. Prime Minister Modi’s decision should be driven by a clinical appraisal of what can be achieved — not what India wishes might be won....

 
A Threshold Crossed In Uri
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain (retd)

A Threshold Crossed In Uri
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain (retd)

Should we have expected it at Uri? Intelligence agencies gave a broad warning about the possibility of a spectacular action. That is usually done every year. Professional minds would have analysed it exactly as I have done. It had to be near the LoC and it had to be a high-profile target, preferably within the Valley. There is no other objective as starkly evident as Uri....

Why Pakistan’s Deep State Chose Uri and How We Should Respond
Syed Ata Hasnain

The world is unwilling to support India’s genuine efforts to peacefully force Pakistan to retract from this dangerous path. If that be the case, all aspects of international image and standing needs to be set aside in order to secure our interests. This is a hybrid war that we are being subjected to and we need to respond in the hybrid domain....

Army’s Task in Kashmir: Restoring Order
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain (retd)

The Army’s forced vacation and reduction of strength over the past few years was due to the intense pressure that the local politicians imposed on the Government of India. A task in counter-insurgency/terror situations is never considered complete until the political legitimacy and authority is fully established. ...

 

In rural Hindu households in large parts of India, the sacrificial goat is raised with love and fed well for months and often a couple of years, before it turns into food. It may sound horrifying to some, but to the families concerned, it’s all right.  The same happens in Muslim households who believe the sacrificial goat has to spend some time with the family for the latter to develop familiarity with the animal, since sacrifice must involve giving up something dear to you....

 

Questioning the Liberal Left
Tabish Khair

For instance, by focussing on the minority practice of sati, Hinduism was defined in a certain way. Similarly, by focussing on matters like multiple wives, Zanana and veiling, Muslim societies were defined in a certain way. Such definitions — in the above cases, Muslim and Hindu societies were stereotyped as oppressing women — could then be employed to justify colonisation, and obscure the many other realities of such colonised societies....

 

Don’t Confuse Wahhabiat with Kashmiriyat
M.D. Nalapat

Appeasing the backers of Wahhabiat damages the chances of Kashmiriyat making a comeback in the Valley, and hence it is not surprising that every gesture of “reconciliation” (i.e. surrender to the Wahhabis) has been followed by a further descent into chaos....

 

He May Have Insulted Obama, but Duterte Held up a Long-Hidden Looking Glass to the US
Adele Webb

If that were all there was to it, we could rightly roll our eyes and move on. After all, Mr Duterte's language is vulgar; his slander of people and groups is liable to incite violence; and his determination to kill drug pushers (to fight "crime with crime") an abuse of power. He should not be defended for any of this. But as someone who has spent a long time studying US-Philippine relations, I think there's something more for us to see here....

 

The Rise and Fall of Altaf Hussain
Altaf Hussain

He was called a Pir Sahib for many years, Quaid-e-Tehrik (leader of the movement), Rahber (guide), and always Altaf Bhai. A strike call in Karachi would paralyse the city as Altaf Bhai would address his muhajir disciples over the phone or video links, carried live by every TV channel that wanted to be spared the wrath of the party militants for not showing Bhai’s address. If ever there was a party which once resembled those called ‘fascist’, it was the MQM. No one dared show any disrespect to the party or its leader...

 

Obama Nominates First Muslim to Be a Federal Judge

J&K: Communication Strategy is Key but First, Stabilise the Streets
Lt Gen (Retd) Syed Ata Hasnain

Only when the streets are quiet will a counter strategy of communicating with the masses become effective. Foremost must be the understanding that the Separatist leadership is now beyond repair and any chances the government had of employing it for a future dispensation are now passé.....

 

Haj, Humanity and Saudi Arabia
Rafia Zakaria

Haj is a religious imperative, seen as a route to spiritual salvation. Regardless of where they come from, pilgrims arrive with the hope of seeing a holy place they have turned towards five times a day for their entire lives. The fact that such holy places are located on Saudi territory means that admission and entry are dependent on the Saudis....

An Open Letter to the People of Brazil
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

In the struggle to make this world the place of peace, justice and environmental sustainability that it could be, the people of Brazil have been playing an inspirational role. You do not need to let this coup be more than a temporary setback. You also have solidarity allies around the world and many of us are willing to assist you, if you decide to let us play a role too...

 

Guerrilla Art Exhibit Unmasks the Face of Terrorism
Peter Baker

Eight months after the attack, the killer’s face hovered over Dizengoff Street again, full of menace and malevolence. On a giant outdoor screen, the killer, Nashat Melhem, talked about death and cursed the Jews as evening strollers passed by, a chilling voice from beyond the grave that was taped on his mobile phone before he opened fire on the crowds gathered here on New Year’s Day....

 

U.N. Human Rights Chief Blasts ‘Demagogues’ of Western Nations
Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein

The Strategy behind the ‘B’ Word
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

Remember Pakistan’s chaotic internal security situation and obsession with seeking its space in Afghanistan leaves it little time for Kashmir. Cornering it by imposing caution and giving enough signals about the future intent being in the same domain as that of Pakistan in Kashmir, could force a rethink. However, a one off smart move which has had strategic overtones needs sustenance for continuing effectiveness. ..

 

A Redefining Moment for Muttahida Qaumi Movement
Khaled Ahmed

Its ailing leader Altaf Hussain, banned from Pakistani TV channels through a court order, addressed a hunger-strike audience via telephone and lambasted the state of Pakistan: “Pakistan is a cancer for the entire world. Pakistan is a headache for the entire world. Pakistan is the epicentre of terrorism for the entire world. Who says long live Pakistan… it’s down with Pakistan. Pakistan Murdabad! (Death to Pakistan)”....

Janamashtami – Lord Krishna’s Birth Celebrations
Dr. Mike Ghouse

The true way to celebrate Lord Krishna’s birth celebrations (or appearance as the Hare Krishna folks call it) is to read at least a chapter from Bhagvad Gita. I am inspired by it, and I am a Muslim today because of reading a verse from Bhagvad Gita that called on each one of us – finding the truth is one’s own responsibility....

Balochistan – Pak’s Untold Story
Col. R. Hariharan

Hafiz Saeed’s “warning” to India to either accept the separatist Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s 4-point formula on Kashmir and “withdraw security forces from the Valley, or face the decision in battlefield” has an ominous ring. It raises the uncomfortable question is Pakistan preparing for Operation Badr-2...

 

We Hope Pakistan Will Change the Narrative
Suhasini Haidar

So we hope that the narrative that has been there for decades is not going to be acceptable for the region, for Afghanistan and the international community — and Pakistan will change it, for the sake of themselves, the world community, and Afghanistan....

 

Did Munich Killer Lure Children To Their Deaths On Facebook? Police Probe Fake Ad for Free Food at Massacre Mcdonald's Where Iranian, 18, Killed First Of His Nine Victims before Turning Gun on Himself

Munich was in lockdown for a major police operation around the city's Olympic Park, after the 18-year-old Iranian opened fire at the fast food restaurant, before targeting shoppers in a busy mall in the district of Moosach. The killer's body has been found half a mile from the scene after he reportedly turned the gun on himself. Police now believe he may have acted alone, after they initially went in search of three gunmen yesterday....

There Is an Urgent Need for India to Reclaim “National Interest” From Its National Media
Shah Faesal

My fears were proven right: Soon, I was told, there was a huge mob outside our colony, rallying against the remarks of the Zee News anchor asking the dead militants to be burnt along with garbage instead of being buried in India’s land; the studio and the street were competing with each other.....

An Old New Militancy
Syed Ata Hasnain

A terrorist’s days are always numbered and so were Burhan Wani’s. Leading the new militancy in South Kashmir, the 22-year-old angry young man from the passionately anti-India town of Tral brought an aura of romance to terror in South Kashmir....
