This is the reason that democracy is weak in Pakistan and that fundamental rights are usurped in the name of national security and patriotism....

 

The Taliban leadership had welcomed Trump’s withdrawal order and they are now participating in the talks with the US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, being facilitated by Pakistan. In this regard, the Afghan NUG is now also keen to talk to the Taliban...

 

One hundred days after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is pressing ahead with anti-dissident campaigns and ....

 

Imran Khan is talking of trade and investment with India. Everybody knows it means free trade, free movement and Indian investments in Pakistan. Who else but post-Nehruvian capitalist Narendra Modi would comprehend the significance of this kind of thinking?.....

 

Life as an exile was hard for him. He continued to profess his love for his homeland. But at last he was free. “I have left my home, my family and my job, and I am raising my voice,” he wrote in one of his Post columns. “To do otherwise would betray those who languish in prison. I can speak when so many cannot.”....

Wednesday’s women’s entry into the Sabarimala temple was a “proud moment” and “just the beginning”. Aysha is “hoping more women will fulfil their desire”. On the violent retaliation that followed, Fida said, “It is such a shame that still there are repressive forces in our state. They are actually pulling our state down.”...

On paper then, this development would make sense for all parties involved: welcome to the new Libya – the same as the old Libya, but hopefully less unhinged, and somewhat more aligned with Moscow....

 

The systematic sexual violence against the Rohingya reminded many in Bangladesh of their own painful history: During Bangladesh’s war of independence in 1971, the Pakistani military and local collaborators killed about 300,000 civilians and raped and tortured as many as 400,000 women and girls....

 

Bangladesh, one of the largest Muslim-majority nations in the world, has done well in major respects. Its economy has grown at an average rate of about 7 percent for several years. It performs better than its bigger neighbours, India and Pakistan, on development indicators....

 

Both Modi and Khan are “transformational” leaders whether the “liberals” in both countries like it or not. They can change the way the two countries have been relating to each other. Indo-Pak normalisation will lead to an “internal” normalisation on both sides

 

What is less discussed is how such stray cows involved in traffic accidents also lead to loss of human life. Authorities in Punjab had announced on April 17 this year that stray cows involved in traffic accidents have killed 300 people in the last 30 months....

If he wants to avoid the fate of the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, he would be wise to join deposed Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in Jeddah and allow the country to heal and put itself together again without the unnecessary agony.....

 

Pakistan is pinning huge hopes on the Gwadar Project as the transit point for goods from Russia and CARs [Central Asian Regions] bound for the Gulf and the East but Chabahar Port would inflict a huge financial setback for Pakistan....

 

In Mumbai last week, I attended Republic TV’s summit that glittered with BJP stars......

As things stand, the only law being sparingly used to challenge these conversions is the Child Marriages Restraint Act, 2013, ....

Our Prime Minister, who is so voluble in his election campaigns and who never tires of telling us of how the Constitution of India is the only holy book he worships, maintains stony silence even as he sees a Chief Minister handpicked by him treat that same Constitution with sheer contempt. It is evident that, for the Sangh Parivar, constitutional morality is of no value and is necessarily subordinate to the ideals of majoritarian supremacy....

BJP governments have been ousted in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. India is digesting the lessons from these defeats as it looks forward to the general election in 2019. Many policies will come under review within the BJP, including perhaps the religious fervour frequently unleashed on the minority communities....

 

The recent spate of violence has also laid bare the fault lines of Bangladesh’s democracy in which the enduring political concept of a level playing field for all contesting parties has been relegated to a dangerous fiction which, like the fabled El Dorado...

 

What is important now for Saudi Arabia is that the Houthis hand over all their medium and heavy weaponry to the legitimate state so the Kingdom does not have a militia similar to the gangs of Hezbollah neighbouring it, especially that Iran’s attempt to replicate Hezbollah’s experiment in Yemen has failed...

 

Experts say that one of the reasons behind the AL's ideological shift is the overall Islamisation of Bangladeshi society in the past few decades. The newly emerged middle class in the Muslim-majority country leans toward political Islam and doesn't shy away from displaying its religiosity....

It’s awkward to find yourself in a police state interviewing people about their leader’s penchant for starving children, torturing women or dismembering critics....

Moreover, there is also great anxiety that CPEC will convert the Baloch people into minorities in their own homeland. Nooruddin Mengal, a human rights campaigner from the Province stated, .....

 

The Kartarpur Corridor is a step forward in the right direction.....

 

The FBI grew suspicious of Aafia Siddiqui and her husband, Muhammad Amjad Khan, while they lived in America because of their donations to Islamic charities. ...

Saudi Arabia gets much of the blame for Yemen’s misery. It has bombed civilians and the government it supports is not popular. The Houthis, though, are also widely hated. They have been accused of torturing prisoners and running a police state. Many Yemenis, therefore, do not care who wins. But ending the fighting would just be a start. A political solution that assuages everyone’s grievances will take time. For now, there is only hope....
