Some have said that the initiative is doomed. No amendment can be passed — certainly none that would weaken the power of the military — unless the military acquiesces: According to conventional wisdom, the Constitution itself gives the military veto power over any amendments....

 

New Delhi should, therefore, not be overly optimistic that growing Saudi-Indian relations in the economic sphere will succeed in prying Riyadh away from Islamabad. There are various reasons that lead to this conclusion....

That Pakistan is a fertile ground for terror networks is a well-known fact. But why would China tacitly support Jihadi terrorists?  On paper, China reiterates its "commitment" to fight terrorism. However, keeping India distracted – by requiring it to deal with terrorism and its aftermath - is in China’s interest....

 

When we think of nationalism in the Middle East, we recall “Arab nationalism” that animated Indian engagement with the region over the last several decades. But as Delhi prepares to host the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman this week, India must come to terms with an unfamiliar idea — “nationalism in Arabia”....

 

Whenever Pakistan starts to speak the language of peace, it raises hackles in India because it seems evident that something unusual is in the offing and overtures are primarily there to bait India. ....

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh went personally to welcome him at the airport. Since then, relations have looked up. Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Riyadh in 2016, and buzz of major Saudi investments in India began. The PM met MBS, seen as the real power behind the throne in Buenos Aires, during the G20 summit in Argentina, last November....

 

He placed the working of the Constitution in the context of several recent incidents, which paint the Indian state in a less savoury light, by saying, "The Constitution fails when a cartoonist is jailed for sedition. When jail instead of bail is granted to a blogger who was critical of religious architecture, the Constitution fails."....

Wealthy Jewish interests bribing U.S. lawmakers to sell out America? In addition to being false — the real power backing current Israel policy in the United States is evangelical Christianity — this is Protocols-of-the-Elders-of-Zion stuff....

 

Pakistan’s civil society must not be tricked by the way an otherwise excellent decision is presented to it; it should also not desist from using the verdict to its advantage. The verdict indeed gives it a foot in the door to contest for greater rights.....

 

In a world of inequality of wealth, brawling people and nations with no solutions in sight. Mishra describes Islamist Pakistan and Hindu India as neighbours “driven by the narcissism of small differences”....

Our ulema do not come out against these extremist organizations and even covertly support them by giving lame excuses. In 2014, they had even got justification in their actions in the event of 69 nurses from Kerala being released by the ISIS who had been kept hostage for 23 days....

Surprisingly, however, the Supreme Court’s Shayara Bano judgment (2017) does not talk of gender justice. The court set triple Talaq aside because the majority in the five-judge bench found the practice to be un-Islamic — that is, against the faith....

 

India’s Afghan policy is at a crossroads. A period of adjustment has become essential following US President Donald Trump’s unilateral announcement that he is pulling US troops out of the conflict-ridden country.....

Its reputation soared among both the Shia and non-Shia populations of the country because of its successful resistance to Israeli occupation that forced Israel to withdraw from Lebanon in 2000....

 

You cannot expect all people to accept the full spectrum of gender and sexual diversity, because that isn’t realistic. You can – and should – expect them to treat LGBT people, and disabled people and ethnic minorities as equal citizens; to protect their rights...

 

What’s the best way to fight terrorism? As the United States withdraws from Afghanistan and Syria, shifting from the unending War on Terror to the no less unending “...

 

Parties are banned. Those who ask questions are jailed. Migrants—Christians included—have no prospect of citizenship. They remain foreigners no matter how many generations are born in the UAE. “If the pope really cared about humanity, he would speak about human rights...

 

Pakistan has similarly been pushed towards Saudi Arabia by the compulsions of financial circumstances. Once again, the country needs to raise money from abroad to make both ends meet....

 

Unless the region sees a dramatic reversal in trends, India’s three-decades-long approach to the region may finally run its course. India will weather the storm, but its policy of holding the proverbial stick from the middle, however, might not....

 

The Wardak massacre amidst the Doha Dialogue can be explained, first, as a Taliban military strategy for leverage in political negotiations. Both the US and the Taliban want to negotiate from a strong position in the field....

 

He inscribed in the visitor’s book, “I have said this before and I say it again: A stable, secure and prosperous Pakistan is in India’s interest. Let no one in Pakistan be in doubt about this.”....

 

As for Muslim groups in the West, the fact none of these self-styled Islamic leaders in America, U.K., Canada, France or Germany have protested outside the Saudi or Turkish embassies tells us a lot about who runs their store....

 

These protests are unfolding in Sudan against the regime of President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide. Other presidents have committed genocide over the last century, but Bashir has the distinction of conducting three different genocides by my count....

 

This is the reason that democracy is weak in Pakistan and that fundamental rights are usurped in the name of national security and patriotism....

 

The Taliban leadership had welcomed Trump’s withdrawal order and they are now participating in the talks with the US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, being facilitated by Pakistan. In this regard, the Afghan NUG is now also keen to talk to the Taliban...
