The Maulana is pitching for Imran Khan’s resignation and fresh elections. In 2014, it was Imran Khan’s Dharna and in 2017 it was that of the Barelvi Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP)....

 

It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times — or so it certainly feels in Pakistan. The air too has recently decided to give up. If no one cleans house, themselves, their souls, then why must anyone else take the trouble to do so?...

 

BC Law also points out that Ayodhya was the birthplace of the first and fourth Jain Tirthankaras. It is called Ishvakubhumi in Jain writings, and the first Tirthankara, Rishabhanatha, is believed to have been born here. ...

 

Then came former Congress CM Prithviraj Chavan’s photograph alongside Hindutva leader Sambhaji Bhide, the man originally accused of having instigated the Bhima Koregaon violence, and then given a clean chit by the CM in the Maharashtra assembly. Did the Congress, conspicuous by its absence from the poll campaign, think all this would win it Hindu votes? ...

Defeating the Soviet Union meant defeating whatever progress Pakistan had made as a liberal democracy. Today, no one loves Pakistan in Afghanistan, Pakhtuns least of all...

 

Justice Khan gave the example of the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah which Prophet Mohammad signed with the hostile tribe of Quraysh in 628 AD. It had been six years since the Prophet and his followers had left Mecca for Medina....

 

Protesters have been calling for the resignation of the Prime Minister, Saad Hariri. He has ignored them. Though one of his coalition partners has quit the cabinet, the rest of Mr Hariri’s ministers are staying....

 

It’s not easy being a ‘foreigner’ in one’s own country. Ask Mahommad Sanaullah, who despite fighting the Kargil War and extremists in J&K and Manipur under the banner of the Indian Army, was locked up in a detention camp in Assam meant for illegal migrants from Bangladesh and excluded from the NRC....

 

“Kate seems to have been selected for her role as princess because she was irreproachable, as painfully thin as anyone could wish, without quirks, without oddities, without risks of the emergence of character. She appears precision made, machine made” and “a jointed doll on which certain rags are hung”, “a shop-window mannequin”, with no personality of her own, entirely defined by the clothes....

 

“No Lord but Jesus Christ. There is only one true God. Forgive us, Father, for allowing a prayer which is an abomination in your right.” This is what a group of fanatics had shouted in the United States Senate, protesting against the recitation of a classical Indian prayer at the beginning of a session in July 2007....

American officials knew that the northern Syria problem would have to be resolved, Ms. Brown said, and that only Washington had the leverage and relationships to do it. But other priorities took precedence....

 

“We have no doubt that a court fully conscious of plural composition of the court while called upon to deal with rights of various communities cannot make such observations which may appear to be coloured/biased for/or against a community. that the fact the deceased belongs to a certain community cannot be a justification for any assault much less a murder.”....

Since Independence, the Congress dealt with these issues as a kind of modus vivendi, relying on deferring them issue, or fudging along with messy compromises that were often unprincipled....

Warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who stood for president in the September 2019 elections in Afghanistan, announced post-poll that his rival, incumbent President Ashraf Ghani’s votes were “over 60 per cent bogus”, but he, Hekmatyar, had won the election anyway. The Tajik “chief executive” Abdullah Abdullah too announced that he had won the election....

 

Ataturk famously declared, “Happy is the one who says ‘I am a Turk’” — a motto still carved on public buildings and even mountaintops all across Turkey. But many Kurds didn’t feel happy with this dictate....

For America, the YPG fighters have been indispensable partners, and heroes, in the ground war against the jihadists of Islamic State in Syria and parts of Iraq. To most Turks, they are no more than a wing of the PKK...

 

So the efforts of Trump’s henchmen to use the spectre of secularism to distract people from their boss’s sins probably won’t work. But I could be wrong. And if I am wrong, if religious bigotry turns out to be a winning strategy, all I can say is, God help us.....

 

Fazlur Rahman was no less a committed ideologue and mouthpiece for the Taliban than Maulana Sami-ul-Haq. In 2002 Fazlur Rahman was the prime ministerial candidate for MMA against Zafrullah Khan Jamali of PMLQ and Shah Mahmood Qureshi of PPP. ...

 

The authors were not revealing a dark secret or a vital aspect of India’s defences. Even so, a citizen filed an FIR with the police, and a local magistrate in Bihar then filed a case for sedition under the Indian Penal Code. …

It cheered me up enormously when he announced that the thoughts of Guru Golwalkar were no longer considered sacrosanct and that the RSS did not believe any more in a Hitlerian final solution to our ‘Muslim problem’….

Had we listened to Gandhi, we could have grown together with the advantage of interaction. William Leitner, a Hungarian Jew who came to India as an educationist, wanted the Muslims of Indian Punjab to learn math and the sciences instead of what was drilled into them in madrasas. ...

On the plus side, Abiy has tried hard to be a unifier since he took office last year. He often uses the Amharic word medemer (to add together) in speeches. Millions of Ethiopians have welcomed his promises of democracy, reconciliation and reform in a country that had long been oppressed....

“Some want us to send tens of thousands of soldiers to the area and start a new war all over again,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Others say STAY OUT and let the Kurds fight their own battles. I say hit Turkey very hard financially with sanctions if they don’t play by the rules.”...

 

Remorse and guilt are important emotional resources available to a society or a nation for recovery after going through a trauma. In the case of atrocities against the Scheduled Castes, public recognition of their trauma is rarely granted....
