  • Opinion/Editorial:
  • Jinnah, Rohingyas and Pakistan:
    69 years ago today Jinnah the founder of Pakistan passed away. His legacy is bitterly contested both in Pakistan and India. What we should be able agree on is that whatever good or bad he did, he died almost seven decades ago. It is, therefore, amusing to see some commentators still blaming him for some misfortune or the other, in Pakistan and India.( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-09-11/lahore/14015/106185)
  • Shrinking space:
    The death of Indian journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bangalore on September 6 is confirmation of the Modi government’s role in rising extremism and hate in the country. Her writing against Hindu nationalism and online threats from Hindutva activists online make this an open and shut case – while those who pulled the trigger are yet to be identified, it is clear that the rising intolerance against anyone that questions the jingoistic narrative in India is the real reason for the respected journalist’s death outside her house.( http://nation.com.pk/E-Paper/lahore/2017-09-11/page-6/detail-5)

  • IOC prepares Paris, Los Angeles award amid graft storm:
    LIMA: The International Olympic Committee opens a week of high-level meetings here Monday, preparing to rubber-stamp the award of the 2024 and 2028 Olympics as the movement battles a fresh wave of corruption revelations. For the first time since the awarding of the 1984 Olympics, the usual frenzy of last-minute lobbying and politicking by rival bid cities and heads of state will be strikingly absent in Lima. In a historic move, the IOC has brokered an agreement that will see Paris handed the 2024 Games with Los Angeles awarded 2028. IOC members are set to greenlight the deal at a meeting on Wednesday following 25-minute presentations by Paris and Los Angeles, the last two cities left in the initial race for the 2024 Summer Olympics. The formal ratification of the 2024-2028 deal will mark the end of a mostly good-natured bidding campaign notable for the number of cities who withdrew from the race citing waning public support and concerns over budget. Hamburg, Rome, Budapest and Boston all fell by the wayside during the competition, reflecting the political difficulties in persuading voters that staging the Olympics is worth the multi-billion-dollar price tag.( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-09-11/lahore/14021/106213)
