Both as a member of a think-tank and having studied law, I am currently investigating the legality of the CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) treaty with special regard to International law, Pakistani national law and its Constitution, and UN conventions; focussing particularly on some fundamental legal questions. With this in mind, I would like to...

Should the Trump Administration respect the Non-Proliferation Treaty, it would withdraw its nuclear missiles, illegally stationed in Europe and would end its confrontation with Russia. Yet, EU member states opting to continue with the previous policy that they are already familiar with, rallied round the US “government of continuity” during the Munich Confer...

BHRO brings forth reports of human rights’ violation taking place due to the rigid counter insurgency policies of Government. International human rights organizations and media are not allowed in Balochistan, and local media don’t cover stories related to Balochistan due to extreme censorship by military and State’s other institutions, therefore Balochistan ...

Indian philosophy has always been preoccupied with the question of what or who is the Ultimate Reality behind the everyday experiences of life and what is the human relationship to this reality? This question was broadly framed: does such an Ultimate Reality exist, what is its nature and how do humans relate to this reality? The quest began with the Veda, th...

Jainism is a purely spiritual faith; not restricted to any particular caste. People from different castes have followed Jainism for world peace and betterment of the Self. The injustice of casteism was sought to be done away with and even non-Jains were given the right to embrace the...

The Uttar Pradesh assembly election grabbed national and even international eyeballs because of the unprecedented victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party, which its opponents had hoped to deflate in the run up to the general elections of 2019. But its most spectacular outcome was the eclipse of the ‘Muslim veto’. The Muslim vote has decided elections to...

The Uttar Pradesh assembly election results have hit the secularist lobby where it hurts most. India’s largest and politically most important state has demonstrated once again that even if half the Hindus decide to vote as Hindus, they can easily trump the Muslim vote bank. Uttar Pradesh has the largest Muslim population in the country. Muslim votes make up ...

It’s a beautiful late winter morning, the snowy Alborz mountains glittering under the sun, and Professor Mohammad Marandi from the faculty of world studies at the University of Tehran is taking me on the road, westbound. Sprawling west Tehran is a decentralization /connectivity spectacular, with its brand new highways, metro lines, artificial lakes and megam...

In only a few months, the content of the Western national and international media has undergone profound change. We are witnessing the birth of an Entente about which we know almost nothing - neither the real initiators, nor the real objectives – but whose direct anti-democratic consequences can be noticed immediately. The West is currently going through a...

Ayodhya, the city supposedly founded by the patriarch Manu, and at one time the seat of the kings belonging to the Solar Dynasty, including Rama, still decides who can rule India. It no longer arouses the passions it did ca. 1990, but we all have to live with the political consequences of the controversies of those days. In the 1980s, the Congress Party ai...

Conservatives have had a very hard time getting over President Trump’s much-repeated response to Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly’s calling Russian president Vladimir Putin “a killer”. Replied Trump: “There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent?” One could almost feel a bit sorry for O’Reilly as he struggled to reg...

Full disclosure: I’ve met with Russians. I met with a Russian this morning. She brought me coffee. Such crazy and dangerous things can occur in Moscow. I am afraid the CIA and NSA could take notice of this meeting, and then it can be used – even against you. “You have perused an article by Israel Shamir. Were you aware he had Russian...

Japan and the INA had a very realistic chance of achieving near total success, had they invaded India in 1942 or even in 1943. India might well have been freed had Bose shifted to South East Asia in 1942 itself and had led his INA in an invasion of India. Unfortunately, he was forced to cool his heels in Europe. While, The, Nazi warlord Adolf Hitler, was dis...

White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (2016) by Nancy Isenberg is a book which is credited with the groundbreaking idea of studying the history of poor Whites in America. It’s a necessary book because it gives us a lot of badly-needed historical information to analyze the major divide in the United States today: between pro- and anti-T...

All hail the King: “Elvis had achieved what no white trash working-class male had ever dreamt possible: he was at once cool and sexually transgressive and a “country boy”. No longer a freakish rural outcast, as in the past, Elvis was a ‘Hillbilly Cat,’ something many teenage boys wished they could be.” The King in American-style democracy should be White Tr...

“We are not told the whole story, then, because social insecurities and ongoing class tension preoccupied the politicized population too.” Is it any wonder the WTR is so anti-government when it is no exaggeration to say that the first thing the US federal government ever did for White Trash was to launch the Civil War! Because our Southern American readers...

Americans, whether you like it or not, and whether you admit it or not, this book review is about our family. White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (2016) by Nancy Isenberg is a book so necessary that it compelled reviews in “The New York Times” and “The Wall Street Journal” because it finally gives White Trash the place in American hi...

Donald Trump, having believed the rumors about the Russian deployment of cruise missiles in violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Force Treaty (INF Treaty), promised to touch upon revision of the previous agreements in the upcoming talks with Putin. His intention “to make America great” in nuclear weapons could start another round of the arms race. Any...

An ambitious pilot project to trigger student unrest in university campuses across the country is now fairly discernible. Behind it are acolytes of the defused ‘new world order’ that was to climax in the victory of Hillary Clinton in November 2016. The writing on the wall showed that the world’s historical template was shifting from globalisation to national...

Sri Lanka is once again under stress as the 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) commences in Geneva in March 2017, when the Human Rights Commissioner will present his report on Sri Lanka’s follow up actions to meet the requirements of the UNHRC resolution of October 2015. Sri Lanka had agreed to fulfill within two years the requirements of acc...

While Verghese Kurien is justly renowned for his contributions to India’s White Revolution, its founder Tribhuvandas Patel is not as well known to the public. His vision of milk cooperatives networked into a national grid was as necessary as Kurien’s management skills in making India the world leader in milk production. He was also the founder of AMUL, a nam...

This article is a warning - in November 2016, a vast system of agitation and propaganda was set up in order to destroy the reputation and the authority of President Donald Trump as soon as he arrived in the White House. It is the first time that such a campaign has been scientifically organised against a President of the United States, and with such resource...

The first blow to this philosophy of work happened in the early nineteenth century. As the Industrial Revolution began to reshape society, people who had once earned their livelihood by farming or through manual skills, like blacksmithing and shoemaking, began to work for wages in factories. Previously they had worked with a degree of autonomy, producing a n...

Bill Gates, the man who tops the Forbes richest person in the world list has just issued a grave warning about a potential catastrophe that could kill 30 million people at the Munich Security Conference held in Germany: “Whether it occurs by a quirk of nature or at the hand of a terrorist, epidemiologists say a fast-moving airborne pathogen could kill more ...
