Peshawar school attack: Empathy is fine but will Pakistan change its attitude to terror?

Anybody who thinks the spontaneous sympathy in India for Pakistanis after the Taliban attack killed children may mark a turning point in our relationship should think again: the attack has strengthened support for the Pak Army, not civilian rule. #Terrorism #ISI #The Neighbourhood #Pakistani army #Indo-Pak ties #Pakistani Taliban #Peshawar school attack #Peshawar Attacks

Why Pakistan always gets our goat: We are confusing public machismo with strategy

Pakistan's strategy may look irrational, but it is entirely rational from its army's own narrow point of view to retain power. This is why despite efforts to revive political dialogue, it finds ways to get under our skin #Narendra Modi #diplomacy #ConnectTheDots #The Neighbourhood #terrorist #counter terrorism #NSA Ajit Doval #India-Pak Talks

After Iran N-deal, a Modi trip to Tehran is overdue, but hard work lies ahead

With Iran now signing a deal to end its nuclear programme and global sanctions, Narendra Modi can now pursue deeper engagement with it. A Narendra Modi visit to Tehran is overdue #diplomacy #The Neighbourhood #Modi #Hassan Rouhani #India_Iran Ties #Iran N-Deal #Regional Security

The existential threat to India posed by China's Pakistan gambit

The massive Chinese investment in Pakistan has dangerous consequences for India too, and geopolitical equations change. Even China may have got more than it bargained for. India needs to play its cards extremely carefully #diplomacy #Tibet #The Neighbourhood #Xinjiang #string of pearls #China-Pakistan Investment

Sugar Daddy Xi Jinping is effectively reducing Pakistan to a vassal state

The Chinese plan to invest a massive $46 billion in Pakistan may be aimed against India, but it is also an effort to keep Pakistan in one piece and prevent Islamist jihadis from threatening China's own backyard #China #Pakistan #ConnectTheDots #Nawaz Sharif #Geopolitics #The Neighbourhood #Balochistan #South Asia #Xi Jinping #China-Pak economic corridor

Summit to nowhere: SAARC won't take off as long as Pakistan is on board

The SAARC summit now underway in Nepal will not deliver any major results because of Pakistan's decision to play spoilsport. No economic bloc can take off without key belligerents agreeing to a political deal before signing up. #World #India #Sri Lanka #Pakistan #Bangladesh #diplomacy #InMyOpinion #Nawaz Sharif #Sheikh Hasina #The Neighbourhood #MEA #External Affairs Ministry #Saarc Summit #SAARC #Pakistan PM #Syed Akbaruddin #India-Pakistan Ties #PM Narendra Modi #SAARC connectivity agreements

Freed fishermen: Modi tells Tamil Nadu parties they are part of the problem

The release of five fishermen convicted on drug trafficking charges by the Sri Lankan President at Modi's intervention has shown Tamil politicians that so far they have been part of the problem, not the solution, on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue #DMK #diplomacy #ConnectTheDots #AIADMK #J.

Double the force: Parikkar takes Modi-Doval hardline on Pak firing further

The new NDA policy of hitting Pakistan back hard when provoked is a much-needed corrective to the old policy of not doing anything to escalate tensions. #Narendra Modi #diplomacy #The Neighbourhood #India-Pakistan Ties #LoC firing #Ajit Doval #Nuclear Doctrine

It's not about Kashmir: Like UPA, PM Modi is on the wrong track with Pakistan

Pakistan's creation as an ideological state based on religion and in opposition to India makes it a genetically defective nation-state, as on Pakistani journalist notes. Our strategy needs to deal with this reality, not the romance of peace. #HowThisWorks #Terrorism #The Neighbourhood #Zia-ul-Haq #Muhammad Iqbal #India-Pakistan Ties #islamic-state #Religion as Ideology

Why it should be NPR plus Aadhaar, not NPR or Aadhaar

The home ministry is giving NPR primacy over Nandan Nilekani's Aadhaar. Actually, Rajnath Singh should use both, and the objective should be to identify illegal immigrants, but not throw them out. #Rajnath Singh #Nandan Nilekani #Unique ID #The Neighbourhood #NPR #Nepalese #Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants
