Ataturk famously declared, “Happy is the one who says ‘I am a Turk’” — a motto still carved on public buildings and even mountaintops all across Turkey. But many Kurds didn’t feel happy with this dictate....

 

For America, the YPG fighters have been indispensable partners, and heroes, in the ground war against the jihadists of Islamic State in Syria and parts of Iraq. To most Turks, they are no more than a wing of the PKK...

 

So the efforts of Trump’s henchmen to use the spectre of secularism to distract people from their boss’s sins probably won’t work. But I could be wrong. And if I am wrong, if religious bigotry turns out to be a winning strategy, all I can say is, God help us.....

 

Fazlur Rahman was no less a committed ideologue and mouthpiece for the Taliban than Maulana Sami-ul-Haq. In 2002 Fazlur Rahman was the prime ministerial candidate for MMA against Zafrullah Khan Jamali of PMLQ and Shah Mahmood Qureshi of PPP. ...

 

The authors were not revealing a dark secret or a vital aspect of India’s defences. Even so, a citizen filed an FIR with the police, and a local magistrate in Bihar then filed a case for sedition under the Indian Penal Code. …

It cheered me up enormously when he announced that the thoughts of Guru Golwalkar were no longer considered sacrosanct and that the RSS did not believe any more in a Hitlerian final solution to our ‘Muslim problem’….

Had we listened to Gandhi, we could have grown together with the advantage of interaction. William Leitner, a Hungarian Jew who came to India as an educationist, wanted the Muslims of Indian Punjab to learn math and the sciences instead of what was drilled into them in madrasas. ...

On the plus side, Abiy has tried hard to be a unifier since he took office last year. He often uses the Amharic word medemer (to add together) in speeches. Millions of Ethiopians have welcomed his promises of democracy, reconciliation and reform in a country that had long been oppressed....

“Some want us to send tens of thousands of soldiers to the area and start a new war all over again,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Others say STAY OUT and let the Kurds fight their own battles. I say hit Turkey very hard financially with sanctions if they don’t play by the rules.”...

 

Remorse and guilt are important emotional resources available to a society or a nation for recovery after going through a trauma. In the case of atrocities against the Scheduled Castes, public recognition of their trauma is rarely granted....

 

It is evident that if you take the letter as a whole, leave alone sedition, no criminal offence is made out. Surely, this court decision warrants an urgent and fresh debate on the need to repeal the sedition law, for it has no place in a vibrant democracy...

Evidently, Imran had neither been briefed on the escalation matrix in international relations nor on the basic concept of war and its nuclear fallout. Hence, he displayed ignorance, immaturity and poor knowledge. Which global leader would threaten the world with a nuclear war?...

Due to the erroneous judgment of the SC, the heavy burden of proving citizenship is now on the citizens — they have to prove it on the basis of pre-1971 legacy and linkage documents. The law completely ignores the illiterate and destitute’s daily struggle for livelihood — they cannot possibly be meticulously keeping documents, particularly when most of them have had their homes ravaged by floods five to seven times on an average....

Pakistan’s aggressive, if not irrational reaction to the constitutional changes in J&K on August 5 has ensured that bilateral relations have entered a new and particularly difficult phase. ...

Here, she articulated points critical for the future welfare of South Asia. The first of these prescriptions says: “We must move beyond the majority-minority mindset… Pluralism has been the strength. So, we should be able to celebrate South Asia’s diversities in religion, ethnicity and language”. ...

The Bengalis moved to India and Assam. They were not named as an ethnic group in those places. But they were named as an ethnic group in Myanmar and they would be able to demand the right of secession. For that reason, the government can't accept the usage of Rohingya....

 

It could be time for the Prime Minister to speak up. He took too long in his first term to condemn the lynchings, so by then it was not just Muslims who were being targeted but Dalits as well....

The first ten days of the Jewish new year, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, are known as the days of atonement. It is a time in which observant Jews take stock of their sins in the preceding year....

 

It is one of the most difficult subjects in the world. The abuse of children and then the recording and disseminating of images online have reached epidemic proportions....

The graveyard in Ghari Khuda Baksh, where the family of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is buried, is a testimony that in a country where the deep state rules and enjoys a monopoly over state affairs, politicians are probably the most vulnerable and most criticized segment....

The Global Climate Movement is Failing: Why?
The Global Climate Movement is Failing: Why?
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

It has been satisfying to note the significant response to two recent climate campaigns: the actions, including the recent Global Climate Strike, initiated by school students inspired by Greta Thunberg and the climate actions organized by Extinction Rebellion….

In July 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Washington and told the Americans that Pakistan would like to exchange terror-convict Aafia Siddiqui, serving a long sentence in America, for Shakeel Afridi, also serving a long sentence in Pakistan for “sneaking” on Osama bin Laden...

 

The majority community along with Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs are predominant in the population of both the state of Goa and the Union Territory of Daman and Diu. It is unfair to keep them deprived of the modern family laws of 1955-56 which are applicable to these communities in the rest of India....

 

“We could be next. Anytime.” Panic is writ large on the face of 24-year-old Navdeep Kaur as she talks about Sunday’s brutal killing of a newly-married couple in Naushera-Dalla. ...

 

As it stands, it is a now a very good piece of legislation and should be supported by all Christians. Of course, like any law it can always improve, which can be done through amendments later on, but even as it is, it is a very comprehensive and modern law which takes into consideration Christian principles without making this civil law into a religious law....
