AUKUS vs. QUAD: A Reality Check
Asad Mirza India it seems has been left out in the cold on the issue of maintaining regional security in the Asia-pacific region after the formation of AUKUS by the USA. The past week saw the US’s hard push to contain China in its own backyard, by the formation of a new defence agreement known as AUKUS, with no precedent in diplomatic world, as the regional might of the new alliance is already covered by an old alliance named Quad. AUKUS-named after Australia, United Kingdom and United States proclaims to bring hard military power to support the order built by the United States in Asia, and “sustain peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region”, as per a stateme...

UK-UAE Bonhomie
Asad Mirza The new found love between the UK and UAE might have propelled one of its former ministers to nominate the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince, for the Nobel Peace prize. The withdrawal of the US forces from Afghanistan before the deadline has dealt a severe blow to the special relationship between the US and UK and also the EU member states. They insist that the withdrawal before time was a hasty decision and their view was not taken on-board. They also base their criticism of the Biden’s decision on the inputs by both the British and other countries’ intelligence that such an action might end up in chaos, and the subsequent events leading to the rout by the Taliban forces in...

Dr. Farooq & Mehbooba’s ‘love’ for Taliban, Sharia Law
Straight Talk
K B Jandial When out of power, Dr. Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti hardly leave any occasion to vilify the Central Govt and now PM Modi, especially after “abrogation” of Article 370, even if it contradicts their own stated position or ideology. Perhaps, it is the result of politics of hatred or polarisation to strengthen their vote bank, largely in Kashmir. One such occasion has come on 15th August when the armed Talibans occupied Afghanistan, coinciding with our Independence Day. How two ‘Independence Days’ are contrasting with equally opposite modes of surge to power and ‘independence’? But for the date, there is no comparison between the two nations. India’s Independenc...

Afghan scenario in terms of history
K N Pandita China and Pakistan have joined hands to uproot the semblance of Westminster type of democracy from the Asian continent. That is what has happened in Afghanistan. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has re-emerged after fighting the invading forces --- first the Soviet and then American --- for more than three decades. Now we have three Islamic republics in the region namely Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. All of them express their allegiance to sharia law meaning the law that has been derived from two sources, the holy book (Qur’an) and the tradition (hadith). The Quran has been variously interpreted; hardly two interpretations (tafsir) agree. The Sunni Hanafi sect of...

Taliban victory puts Pakistan in a quandary
Asad Mirza Pakistan seems to be worried that Taliban styled thinking might spread to Pakistan and secondly, the Taliban might turn out be more pro-India than pro-Pakistan. Pakistani government at the moment seems to be in a quandary. The manner in which it wanted to exploit the Taliban victory in Afghanistan has rebounded threatening to reinforce religious fundamentalists inclinations in Pakistan itself. US President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan was due to the realisation that religious fundamentalismmight not remain contained to Afghanistan. The Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan may give Pakistan a choice to look at its relationships wi...
