Russia-Iran Defence Relations Gets a Boost
Asad Mirza The apparent bonhomie between Iran and Russia, two ideologically opposed powers, seems rather surprising. But the reality of wider strategic gains can make one eschew ideology. International politics, internal compulsions and various other external and internal threats and dynamics sometimes bring antagonist forces together. The wider compulsions force countries to forego ideological differences and stances and instead work unitedly for greater gains in the geo-political and regional level besides influencing global politics. The latest example in such a scenario is that of Iran and Russia working together in the backdrop of the continuing Russia-Ukraine wa...

Tough Days Ahead for UK: Rishi Sunak
Asad Mirza The Conservative Party of the UK showed a lot of grit in finalising the name of Rishi Sunak, as the new prime minister of the country very quickly, bringing an end to Liz Truss’s short tenure as the prime minister riddled with bad decisions. Rishi Sunak has become the UK’s 57th prime minister, the first prime minister to be a British Asian, the first Hindu, and the richest person to have held the office. Former prime minister David Cameron had exuded confidence in 2014 when he had prophesised to see a British Asian taking on his role his life time. Lo and behold, the words came true in just eight years. The Conservative Party selected the newest British prim...

‘Ab KeBaar Jammu CM’, Not Guv, LG or Advisors
Straight Talk
K B Jandial Mehbooba Mufti has somehow smeared her image in Jammu to that of anti- Jammu and anti-India, thanks to her strong and provocative statements, utterances and tweets from time to time since her Coalition Govt was dumped by BJP on June 19,2018. Her virulent statements like Tirange ko koi kandadeneywalanehimiley ga, seeking “consent from a Hurriyat party” for forming coalition Govt with BJP( PTI Dec 12, 2015) might have helped her to garner and consolidate her vote bank in Kashmir comprising mostly protagonists of soft separatism, of which she was the author, and now, even separatists, after the space has become available due to demise of Syed Ali Shah Geelani and shuttin...

U.S. brokered Israel-Lebanon maritime agreement

Power Consolidation in China
Asad Mirza The 20th Congress of the China’s Communist Party will begin on 16 October, a five yearly exercise. This time it is expected to approve Xi Jinping as country’s paramount leader for the third unprecedented time. Recent rumours of a military or a political coup in China seem to be largely unsubstantiated and unreliable. They can be dismissed as based on the fact that the current leadership has in the past week acted harshly against what it called a “political clique” against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and this is not a new phenomenon and more or less, happens before every major party conference. Last week, China's former Deputy Public Secur...

Chinese BRI: A success or a failure?
Asad Mirza The recent economic upheaval followed by the political disruption in Sri Lanka, has once again made the Chinese BRI, the focus of debate whether it is beneficial or insensitive to the participating countries besides being a success or a failure.

Itwas considered to be a centrepiece of the Chinese foreign and trade policy. Basically, Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) earlier also referred to, as One Belt One Road or OBOR for short, is a global infrastructure development strategy to invest in nearly 150 countries and in...

Why do prejudices exist against SC/ST despite stringent laws?
K. B Jandial Right from childhood to the present-day political rallies & debates, one thing is repeatedly said- “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. Even the Constitution of India guarantees fundamental right of equality, right to life and freedoms without distinction of race, colour, sex, language, religion, social origin or birth. By law, no one can be subjected to discrimination, inhuman or degrading treatment. But most of the time, this general statement looks more of political rhetoric than reality. Even after 72 years of the Republic, the Scheduled Caste and the Scheduled Tribe population continue to be the victims of caste prejudices and atrocit...
