Where They ‘ Dine ‘ Together -Seychelles and Panama
Pandora’s Box is open
B L Saraf According to the media , The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists ( ICIJ ) has unveiled financial documents called Pandora Papers , uncovering financial secrets held by high –profile individuals around the world . These Papers carry a list of these people who , allegedly , have accumulated wealth through tax evasions and then parked it in tax ‘ havens ‘ like Seychelles and Panama . This shows how the global elite continue to exploit loop holes in local tax laws and get away with it due to lack of jurisdiction in tax havens . Earlier , we had information of such details through what was then called as P...

How feasible is a EU Army?
Asad Mirza Proposals for a EU army have re-emerged after the Afghan fiasco – but many member states still remain ‘hard to convince’, about its feasibility. It seems that the EU has learnt the lessons of the abrupt end of the US-led mission in Afghanistan and furthermore after AUKUS, that the US is a trying to build a coalition of English speaking Anglophonic nations in the defence realm and that time has now come for them to guard their interests themselves. In her annual state of the union speech in the European parliament in Strasbourg recently, Von der Leyen, a former German defence minister, described the withdrawal of the US-led mission in Afghanistan, and the subs...

Time to look beyond Government –KPs may consider

Reasons for the delay in disbursement should be examined and responsibility thereof must be fixed , lest similar situation arises in the future . The matter , however , is left to the other day . What strikes the mind , as a foremost matter to ponder over in the wake of delayed disbursement of relief ,is ...

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...
