Opinion/Editorial:

  • Pakistan’s foreign policy orientation — :
    Pakistan remains unable to adjust itself to post-Cold War (1947-1991) realities. One of the impediments is the Cold War machinery laden with Cold War terminologies, thoughts and tactics in both diplomatic and defence spheres. One of the fixations of Pakistan is with the Cold War term ‘containment.’ (https://dailytimes.com.pk/156588/pakistans-foreign-policy-orientation-ii/)
  • The Surrender of Jerusalem?:
    Jerusalem has been at the heart of Abrahamic religions, since the dawn of history in holy scriptures. All divine Abrahamic books – the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran – have references concerning Jerusalem and the children of Israel (though the Quran never mentions the name ‘Jerusalem’, and only talks about it in reference to its surroundings and people).
