Pakistan’s image will continue to be hit badly so long as we keep deviating from the solemn promises made by Mr. Jinnah to Pakistanis and especially religious minorities...

 

Perhaps the most fascinating of these sites is the one at Lothal in the Indian state of Gujarat. In an echo of Mohenjo-Daro, “Lothal” also means “hill of the dead” and is the site of the first known dock in the entire world, which connected Lothal to the Arabian Sea via the Sabarmati River....

 

The Pakistani government, mainly under pressure from the international community, has continuously been making efforts to regulate madrasas - some of them are accused of promoting radical ideologies and having links with terrorist networks – and bring them under the government's control....

 

The latest message of Al Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahiri has called for "single-mindedly focusing on inflicting unrelenting blows on the Indian Army and government so as to bleed the Indian economy and make India suffer sustained losses in manpower and equipment"....

Nations are seeking identities away from multiculturalism and wish to protect themselves by banning immigration. Borders are being closed, and those who had crossed them decades earlier as welcome guests are being treated with intolerance....

On both fronts, India is losing ground today, largely because of Trump’s decision to withdraw from Afghanistan. Trump promised to end the war in Afghanistan and get the US out. And he is doing it impatiently....

 

To make ends meet, wives and daughters who would have been confined to the home in villages and small towns go out in pursuit of work. Unmarried conservative couples attend pop concerts and embrace in public....

 

Prime Minister Imran Khan promised the continuation of the Jirga system as it was favoured by the people. While honouring this commitment, the government would be well advised to bear in mind the Supreme Court judgement given in January this year....

 

The first aspect in the Ansari killing was that, in contrast to that of Akhlaq, it did not involve beef. The act was pared down to its fundamentals — the Muslim identity of the subject, with the charge of theft being applied as a masking agent....

The psychology and medical curriculum in Pakistan is somewhat silent about the LGBTQ community and the issues they face. Even if brought up during clinical training, cases are mostly discussed in the context of disorders and rarely from a social or human rights perspective....

 

But there was little euphoria in the Sudanese capital after the announcement of a power-sharing agreement between the junta in charge of Sudan and the protest movement that wants a civilian-led transition to democracy. “It’s a deal,” says Amjed Farid, a protest leader. “It’s a compromise.”....

 

As a humble student of Islamic jurisprudence, I reject the notion that Islam demands an exclusivist Islamic Republic. The idea of Islamic jurisprudence revolves around the “Maqasid-e-Sharia”. None of these Maqasid or objectives are fulfilled by denying equality to Non-Muslims....

A cartoon by Manjul showed Franco standing tall in full regalia while a police officer prostrates before him and, crawling on the ground, says with folded arms: “Let us start your interrogation.”

Life has become a cartoon. ...

 

Pakistan should try to implement FATF and APG conditions, but the powerful Pakistan army and its intelligence wing Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) do not want to relinquish the policy of assisting and abetting diverse terrorist outfits....

 

Ironically — or perhaps tragically — the most beautiful parts of our country are also those most ridden with conflict and violence. They include the vale of Kashmir, the forests of Central India (and of Bastar especially), and the states of northeastern India....

 

Some refugees have been living in Pakistan for three generations, have established businesses, and some of them have even married locals, and are deeply integrated into Pakistani society. They do not think of going back to Afghanistan as it would mean starting again from scratch....

 

Nothing exemplifies the resilience of the interests of capital in the Gulf more than this incoherent dialectic between the new ‘family social security‘discourse and local capital’s need for cheap labour flows. Migrants are somehow painted both as a security threat and a necessity for economic growth/activity – with the latter ultimately trumping the former....

 

Trump is capable of tweeting many things, but none of those tweets will stop that process of decline, nor will a trade war with a rising China or fierce oil sanctions on Iran....

 

And we must do so not by ramming facts down each other’s throats by abuse or hostile behaviour or through violent disapprovals but it can only be done through kindness and mercy that we can affect the people around us. [If you see that one of you has slipped, correct him, pray for him and do not help the Shaytan against him by insulting or mocking him- Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab].....

 He highlighted Pakistan’s efforts for restoring regional peace that will lead to better trade connectivity and reiterated the importance of regional security. “Countries cannot develop individually; it is the region which develops. For our region to develop we need to have greater regional connectivity among all neighbours,” he stated....

 

No Pakistani would want corrupt politicians to strut around the country. They wish to see the corrupt convicted. But some also feel that the sword of accountability is only hanging over the heads of opposition leaders....

 

Has India decided, through its election of Modi, to teach a lesson to revisionist Pakistan by becoming just like Pakistan? It may have, but with one difference: Pakistan is economically belly-up while India is still doing well. The retreat into religion by India is going to be different from the way the Middle East and Turkey have accomplished it...

The initial international reaction was horror, and a few nations and companies withdrew from an economic conclave scheduled shortly afterwards. In the somewhat longer term, though, MBS wasn’t mistaken in counting on getting away with it. It would be surprising if Callamard’s report were to seriously challenge his impunity....

 

Militancy in its extreme forms has led to the exodus of over 3.5 Lakh Pundits and also of a large number of Muslims from Kashmir. Not much has been done for the Pundits, despite different governments ruling at the Centre. The plight of Pundits needs a fresh look when today we are talking of articles 370 and 35 A...

The implications of the AKP’s defeat in Istanbul are significant even beyond Turkey. The AKP was one of the first moderate Islamist parties to come to the fore. Its primary appeal was populist, promising a better life to the ordinary man or woman...
