Jadhav albatross in Pak army’s neck
By K.N. Pandita Pakistan was over confident of its safe passage at The Hague. Therefore the unanimous ruling that laid bare its Jadhav perfidy came to her as a rude shock. What had made Pakistan over-confident? Usually in a conflict between India and Pakistan, western community follows the roadmap chartered by the US. Therefore anti-India stance comes handy. Besides that Islamic Pakistan’s fondness for her atheist friend sharpens her anti-India edge. Pakistan’s surprise is not only that ICJ ruling went against her; it is more that her old friends let her down. In the aftermath of ICJ verdict, Pakistani ruling circles are trying to pass the buck. The crisis is that Islamabad...

Hurriyat (G) under NIA scanner
By K.N. Pandita That the separatists have been regularly receiving huge monies illegally from undisclosed sources outside the country is no news.

It is not surprising, if some Governments in these continents reconciled to this illegal transaction. Our country is not an exception. The main reason for the compromise is that the transactions leave space for segments in the Government to become its beneficiaries. Modi Government i...

Shameful killing of a soldier
By Amit Kushari IAS (Retd) Militancy in Kashmir valley is taking a very dangerous turn now. The situation in Kashmir was always bad since 1990. However, the Government of India somehow managed to retain Kashmir valley in the political map of India with a lot of struggle and difficulty.

When the state elections were held in February 2015, the situation was somehow under control and we witnessed a 50% polling in J&K, which was quite a good achievement, considering its dismal historical record. With the formation of PDP, BJP Government, the downhill journey started and today we are on the brink of a disaster. The...
