Straight Talk
K. B. Jandial None of the past 12 Governors of J&K has spoken as candidly as the incumbent Governor Satya Pal Malik has been doing ever since he was sworn in on 23 August this year. Many a times, it appeared that the Governor has transcended the constitutional boundaries of the coveted office he holds but then, nowadays some Governors are seen to even speaking on TV channels through ‘phone-in’ while some others have raked up controversies by publically speaking against the State Governments, they constitutionally headed. When the new Governor publically spoke for the first time at the launch of India Post Payments Bank facility at SKICC on 1st October, 2018, it was tak...

Pakistan Constitution and Human Rights: inherent contradiction
K.N. Pandita UN Secretary General, now on a visit to India, pontificates that India should take care of human rights in Kashmir.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations is actually the Magna Charta of minority rights. It urges member States to institutionalize protection and promotion of human rights of its citizens without discrimination. Pakistan is signat...

Who does Islamabad want to convince by such wishful claptrap, Washington, London, Moscow or Beijing? Who has been calling Pakistan the epicentre of global terrorism? Where was the master-mind of contemporary terrorism discovered and kill...

Interrupted Peace Process and the Way Forward
Dr Ashok Bhan Peace process in Jammu and Kashmir began circa 1995 with resumption of political activities leading to the assembly election of 1996 and formation of an elected Government after a prolonged Governor/President’s rule. It peaked off with assembly elections of 2014. For a variety of reasons this election was an important milestone in the peace initiative.
