The genocide committed by Pakistan on Bangladeshis was unmatched since the Nazi holocaust. On the 50th year of this crime, Pakistan must apologise.
Isolated in the West, confronted by a pushback in the Indo-Pacific, but driven by overweening entitlement, China might trigger a conflict with India behind a smokescreen of fictional claims. Beijing should know that such an event would imperil all its world-historical objectives.

The abolition of Article 370 only opens up new opportunities for Kashmiris. Economic measures with clear signs of sustainability will establish the goodness of the Centre's political strategy on J&K, writes Lt Gen Subrata Saha
