Motives of Tripartite Bombers of Syria

They lied yesterday and they are lying even today. They have no remorse of how they subjected Iraq, Syria and Libya to complete ruin. They think that the world at large is unaware of their dirty designs in Afghanistan, a port from where they may ultimately embark to ruin Pakistan. Yes Pakistan; they want to punish her for maintaining a strong, disciplined fighting force with their nuclear assets. On Saturday morning, the 14th of April, Britain joined the US and France in bombing Syria. Theresa May, the British Prime Minister,…

REDISCOVERING THE FORMER STATE OF BAHAWALPUR

Nothing is immutable in this world. Everything is subject to change. Only the mutability is everlasting. So is the case of emergence and disappearance of states and people over the planet earth. Ancient history is full of such evidences that empires after empires rose to the eminence and then fell into oblivion in such a way that only the eye of a keen researcher can trace them out. There were Romans, the Greeks, the French, and the Ottomans who ruled the world in such a way as if they will…

Mugabe: Rise and Fall of the Saviour Turned Despot

Catalonia: Destination Independence

It is the people and not the geographical boundaries of any geographical entity that are sacred. People have a right to change the geographical delimitations of a state in which they live, depending upon their social, political and economic requirements at any given period of time. The concept of statehood is bound with the concept of population. People create states and states never grow from nowhere. Global history gives evidence in support of this assertion. Catalans, a nation of 7,522,596 (2016), are the most dynamic people; they have a long…

Rohingyas: The Wretched of the Earth

Who are the Rohingya? According to my own understanding, they could truly be called a species of uncertain taxonomic position. People who lived for centuries in the bordering region of Myanmar (Burma) and Chitagong, a hilly tract of East Bengal, one time East Pakistan, now Bangladesh since December 1971, but they are vehemently refused citizenship of either of these two countries. That is why no one else but only they deserve most the title “wretched of the earth”. They are mostly concentrated in the Burmese state of Arakan; the Rohingya…

“We can’t let the Tories turn back the clock… The Great Repeal Bill is not about Brexit, it is about power”

The bill before parliament today is not solely about Brexit. The Labour Party respects the result of the referendum and that our relationship with Europe will fundamentally change. The vote tonight is not about whether we ‘remain’ or ‘leave’ but whether Members of Parliament or a tiny Tory elite have the final say. The Great Repeal Bill is nothing more than a cynical power grab by a Tory Government without an overall majority. This will give unchecked and almost unlimited power to a tiny group of Tory ministers. A concentration of…
