Why NSA talks were sabotaged
By K.N. Pandita National Security Agency level talks between India and Pakistan stand aborted. The idea of talks was floated during the meeting of two Prime Ministers on the sidelines of Ufa meet. Pakistan called the talks off just twenty-four hours before it would have begun. Its narrative focused on the agenda of the talks. Leader of the opposition (Congress) in the Rajya Sabha criticized External Affairs Ministry for not formally finalizing the agenda of the proposed meet between the security chiefs. We think the agenda was well known and did not need reiteratio...

Ufa: Another Opportunity Lost
By Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai One thing is very clear. The statement issued by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif representing some kind of agreement at the Russian city of Ufa on July 10, 2015 seems on its face to be conspicuously duplicitous. One wonders if Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had some subordinate prepare it, trusting him to convey the intent, but never actually read what was published before it was published. Here’s the thing. There are two distinct parts to the Ufa agreement as it is explicitly written. First, It is prefaced with the gene...

To a common man the relations between India and Pakistan resemble a patient afflicted with a typhoid ailment , whose body temperatur...

Jammu people are “not” stronger than Kashmiris?
Straight talk
By K B Jandial “The people of Jammu are not stronger than the people of Kashmir”. This is reportedly said by a senior BJP Minister in the Mufti Govt. while discussing with media persons the possible result of the ongoing movement for full fledged Jammu AIIMS. Was it a poser or BJP’s final word on the people of two regions which unfortunately always look in opposite directions on almost every issue? Comparison of people in any manner is uncalled for as it is demeaning to rate people of any region as weak, timid or casual while make other an embodiment of strength. Now, when ...

Beyond AIIMS’ narrative
By K.N. Pandita State Government’s handling of Jammu AIIMS issue is a sordid story of coalition partner BJP’s capitulation to lust for power. Looking in retrospect, many Kashmir observers were of opinion that so-called coalition between the two parties, that are poles apart with regard to their ideology and vision, would not augur well for a state that is faced with grave challenges of militancy and the hurricane of radicalization. BJP should have tried for the lesser evil so that it would not need adopting the policy of surrender. Instead, it chose a party that is born fro...

A divided verdict
By Amit Kushari (IAS Retd) After every hanging usually there is a controversy as to whether death penalty should be deleted from our statute book. The same controversy has come back again.

This time another important controversy has arisen— the hanging has sharply divided the nation into two distinct parts — we stand totally polarised. After the hanging I had a casual walk in a busy market place and talked to a large number of p...

Mark the words “ financing ….. . ” They are used intentionally . Intent is to show Memon a lesser offender getting ‘ disproportionate’ penalty . That is...

AIIMS in Jammu -“Collapsed healthcare, shamed hippocratic oath prime reasons”
By Sheikh Shakeel Ahmed It was a cold winter night of 2004 when my father suffered brain haemorrhage at his shop in Jammu. He was rushed to Government Medical College (GMC) hospital Jammu where doctors attending to him told us that the patient has slipped into coma and if he survives even with a paralytic condition it will be a great deal. After having hospitalised for about a fortnight when I didn’t see any improvement in his condition I took my father to AIIMS, Delhi at my own risk. Doctor’s words in AIIMS left us spellbound rather speechless when he said, “had you brought hi...
