Terror strikes put question mark on Kashmir policy
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial Hardly a day passes when the nation doesn’t hear chilling news of one killing or the other in the hinterland of Kashmir or on the LoC.

While it is causing huge concern to everyone but regrettably there is no unanimity on this ever lingering bloodshed with political parties not restraining from playing politics on killings.

South Asia: Re-alignments on the anvil

We have the habit of assessing US-Pakistan relations from the prism of Indo-Pak relations which, however, are not cordial at all. This is not the right way of analyzing their relations. Ever since the birth of Pakistan as a new state on South Asian map, she has been integral to the western bloc. The feudal-cum-army led Pakistani stat...
