How is Presidential Order under Article 370 a fraud?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial While concedingthat the recent Presidential order issued under Article 370 is a deft political move of Modi Govt on the eve of Lok Sabha election but to call it a “constitutional fraud” or “ violation of Article 370” is in fact, a poor understanding of constitutional law besides politicizing it. On March 1, 2019, most of the media reported that the President has issued Ordinance giving benefit of reservations to certain categories of the people of Jammu and Kashmir “by amending a clause of the contentious Article 370, which gives special status to the state”. It was a patently wrong reporting that also agitated the Kashmiri political leadership and civil society to...

Straight Talk
K B Jandial Can’t our politicians allow the nation to bask in the glory of Air Surgical strike at Jaish training Camp at Balakote in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the wee hours of 26 February, 2019? This moment of glory was given to the nation by 12 Air Force warriors flying Mirage 2000H fighter jets through their unprecedented and remarkable punitive air strike at the indented targets, about 80 km deep into Pakistan. It was ‘Bharat ke Maan’ ke baat. With India becoming the third country in the world, after Israel and US, to successfully undertake such air operation deep in the adversary’s territory to avenge the killing of its citizens (martyrdom of 44 CRPF men at Pulwama) and restore ...

Pulwama Massacre: Pay Back To Pakistan But How?
Straight Talk
K B Jandial The worst ever terror strike at Pulwama on February 14 martyring 40 brave hearts of CRPF has united India in grief and anger. As the shroud of sadness descended on the nation the political parties temporarily buried their mutual animosity and politics, and announced full support to Central Govt for taking any step that is necessary in the situation. Regrettably, the political unity didn’t last more than 48 hours. And in seven days this façade vanished with politicians lashing at each other even when pyres of the martyrs are still smoldering. PM Modi has warned Pakistan and terrorist organisations for this horrendous terror attack four times in just 24 hours whi...

It became viral and their purpose was served. Uploading the video on social media is meant to send a message across that “informers” in the valley would meet the identical fate. Until this day, so many killings have taken place for the same reason. And silent and non-reacting Kashmiris c...
