"PAK wants our land, not the Kashmiris"

Special Report


The Kashmiris understand Pakistan is playing with them. Pakistan should stop interfering and sending money, ammunition, weapons, foreign terrorists, training militants: ‘Pakistan wants our land, not the Kashmiris’. Pakistan didn’t have any reservations in absorbing the Northern Areas, this is pure and simple partition of Jammu and Kashmir .......More >>>>

Steady progression of extremism

What others say..........


From crisis to crisis, the world has stumbled, confounded, in its ‘war against terror’, with polices marked by incoherence and damning contradictions. Meanwhile, the forces of extremist violence and those who secure their inspiration from the ideologies of hate are recovering from their brief disorientation to consolidate their networks and .......More >>>>

Asia: A period of change

Yashwant Sinha


Terrorism stalks Asia as never before. India a long-standing victim of terrorism was hit again yesterday. Mumbai was deliberately chosen because what these terrorists and their sponsors envy the most is India’s success in the economic field. The relative stability that ASEAN enjoyed over the last few decades has also been shattered by the rise ......More >>>>

What is the Kashmir conflict all about?

Ajai Sahni


For years now, the Institute for Conflict Management has built the case that the conflict in Kashmir is not about Kashmir; that it reflects, rather, an irreducible conflict between the ideology of religious exclusion and hatred that underlies the creation, existence, politics and strategic perspectives of Pakistan, and India's secular, pluralistic   .......More >>>>

Policy on Terror needs reconsideration

Swaraj Singh


After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, President Bush declared that to fight and curb terrorism was his top priority. After almost 2 years, if we review the situation, then one factor becomes evident: the fight against terrorism is far from over. Actually, terrorism seems to be increasing. The recent attack on the UN office in .....More >>>>

Islamist terror arrives on Indian streets

Swapan Dasgupta


There is a tendency, distressingly familiar among the global fraternity of liberals, to shy away from facing awkward realities. India is no exception to this escapism. In the aftermath of the two bomb blasts that killed at least 50 people and injured another 160 in the center of Bombay -- India´s largest city and the nerve center of its entrepreneurial .......More >>>>

A case against Mrs. Sonia Gandhi

T R Jawahar


The reader, pardon, leader of the opposition, Sonia Gandhi, appears to have had a wonderful day out in Parliament yesterday, if national dailies are to be believed. And at the end of the day it seems all the veterans, sniggering veterans at that, were floored by her, just a novice, and left crawling on the floor of the House. Probably, some even  .......More >>>>

Increasing polarisation and divisions

Swaraj Singh


If we look at the state of our society fifty-six years after independence, then one factor emerges as most striking: there is growing polarization of society and divisions among people are deepening. Actually, there are two completely different India's which seem to be existing side by side. One is the westernized elite and the other is the rest of India—which.......More >>>>

Good fences make good neighbors  

Gary Fitleberg


The Arabs living in the "disputed territories" want the right of "self-determination" and their own statehood. But they also want to have freedom to be able to send their various terrorists utilizing many names, including but not limited to, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, et.al., to travel into what is what is proclaimed as Israel´s borders .......More >>>>
