At Jamia Millia Islamia’s Gate No. 7, where the stir began, hangs a banner with Maulana Mohammad Ali, Jamia’s founder, in the middle and Mahatma Gandhi and Dr Ambedkar on either side of him. Ambedkar is, quite literally, the face of the movement....

Anecdotes about adversity and the spiritual and practical strength of the KPs have been part of the informal education of every child. And the one mantra to conquer all is universally regarded, within the KPs, as education – a source of liberation and empowerment...

 

The worsening security situation in Afghanistan also impacts Indian security with Al Qaeda continuing to assist Taliban in its campaign against Afghan security forces. Add to this, the Islamic State Khurasan Province (ISPK), operating around the Khyber Pass area....

 

Moving from an easy-going young man, shy with strangers but equipped with a ready wit in the company of friends, given to a liberal Left inclination, heavily influenced by classical Persian traditions though he studied and taught English literature…

 

The Christians, Parsis, Hindus and others have made notable contributions towards the progress of the country. Take the case of the judiciary alone....

Our friends are going out in protest marches and shouting Azadi slogans till their voice goes hoarse. They say they want Azadi from communal politics, Azadi from so many other things they think ail India right now....

 

But it was not always so. The Hindus of Pakistan were once a proud, vibrant people; the bearers of an ancient civilisation that flourished on the banks of the River Indus. They stood their ground as one invading army after another passed by on their way to subjugate India...

The curiosity and surprise that have met the Gambia’s bold step remind us that this universal mantle is rarely worn by African countries. The Gambia’s initiative signals a promising new direction....

 

We’re only a few days into the new decade and it’s somehow already a bigger dumpster fire than the last. On January 2nd, President Trump decided to order what one expert called “the most important decapitation strike America has ever launched...

World order is conditioned by relations between countries. The breakdown in bilateral relations often determines how world events either progress, or regress. An important component of why two countries are willing to maintain or end their relations is sometimes governed by their commitment to bigger, more influential powers....

 

However, this is a time to engage with alternative diplomatic mechanisms to contain the conflict. Russia, China and the European Union would certainly have to become more proactive....

 

An excerpt from Justice Isa’s judgment: “Politicking, manipulation of media undermines integrity of armed forces. Pursuant to the judgment in Air Marshal Asghar Khan’s case, the involvement of ISI and of the members of the armed forces in politics, media and other ‘unlawful activities’ should have stopped....

 

What is of ultimate concern is the fact that higher the frequency of such acts of hatred and vengeance, lesser the likelihood of suffering being reduced in the future. In building a new India, the divisions along religion, gender, caste and economic class will lay the foundation of a violent...

 

Three generations have been brainwashed and wasted by dictators like General Ayub Khan, General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq and General Pervez Musharraf, and now perhaps the current hybrid martial law will swallow another generation....

 

With his general’s blood on American hands it will be harder than ever for Mr Khamenei to cross the Rubicon and accept the offer to talk that Mr Trump made last year and reiterated on January 8th....

 

There is a significant body of evidence that human extinction is now imminent; that is, it will occur within the next few years and possibly this year: 2020. There is also a significant body of evidence that human extinction is now inevitable; that is, it cannot be prevented no matter what we do….

 These brutal, cowardly acts of degeneracy and fundamentalism/fanaticism committed by the Empire have to be stopped, sooner or later, in the name of our human race. Otherwise, soon, there will be no humanity left!...

But like Baghdadi, he had created something much bigger than himself that does not depend on him alone. His network will still have much the same capabilities as when he was alive....

General Qassem Soleimani had perhaps come to believe in his own invincibility. This once reclusive force behind Iran’s military and political outreach across West Asia had, over the last few years, acquired a unique celebrity status in his country...

From Baghdad airport, where an American air strike killed him, to his hometown of Kerman, about 1,300 kilometres away in Iran, hundreds of thousands of people filed into the streets to mourn General Qassem Suleimani on January 5th....

 

Iran's threat is more in its willingness to use force when its adversaries don't want to be attacked. That is why tactics such as the kidnapping of academics, or the waylaying of a U.K.-flagged tanker, are its preferred methods....

 

Take the period since 9/11. Back in 2001 President Bush’s threats against the “axis of evil” — Iraq, Iran and North Korea — led to a widespread expectation that after toppling the regime in Baghdad, Washington would take down the clerics in Tehran...

 

The present dispensation is what it is, but it says something about the state of our (better) educational institutions that this “complaint” could even be initiated, let alone entertained....

“We are here because we are afraid that what is happening in Xinjiang will happen in Hong Kong in the future,” says Tony Mak, a student at City University and a veteran of the pro-democracy protests that have disrupted the city for the last six months....

 

What happened in India on the eve of 2020 is unbelievable even given India’s decline into religion, especially for Pakistanis who have been suffering under Islamic extremism for decades....
