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. Latest scary news comes from hitherto peaceful environs of Jammu city. Be it the escape of Pak terrorist from a Srinagar’s Hospital or breach of security in Sunjuwan Military Station, there seems to be no end to terror strikes. 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. Leave aside unanimity, the dirty politics has gone to the unacceptable extent that even one senior NC MLA and forme...

By K.N.

Observers say that intensifying terrorist attacks is because President Donald Trump has designated three Taliban leaders and NATO has accelerated anti -Taliban operations in Helmand region. Whatever the causes, situation in Afghanistan is going from bad to worse. More and more areas are slipping out of the hands of n...

South Asia: Re-alignments on the anvil
By K.N. Pandita In bilateral relations, there are no permanent friends or foes: there are only permanent interests. US-Pakistan relations almost reached nadir when President Trump; twitted “lies and deceit”. Nobody had anticipated that relations between Pakistan — a country once more aligned than allies— with the US would sink to such depths. 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...
