Beat it and slice it: Here’s why it’s time for balkanisation of Pakistan

indo-pak-flagsAfter the abrogation of Article 370, is it the right time for balkanisation of Pakistan? And how does India benefit?

It goes without saying that Pakistan has over the years earned the notorious reputation of being the world’s largest incubator of jihad. The Foreign Policy magazine ranks Pakistan on the top 10 list of failed states.

J&K: Full normalcy will be restored, when daily needs replace activism

security-kashmirNew Delhi, Aug 21: There is tight security in Jammu and Kashmir. Curbs are being eased gradually on a daily basis and besides a few incidents of violence, nothing major has taken place, since the abrogation of Article 370.

I have dealt with such situations and I know how high the anger and passion can be. It would have been a foolish decision to go ahead with such a decision without the restrictions, Bhushan also adds. Questioning the need for restrictions in the Valley is foolish, he also adds.

amar-bhushanNew Delhi, May 08: Radicalisation and terror down south has been a major concern. The fact of the matter is that there was always a danger lurking and it is also a fact that the agencies reacted late in this part of the country.

Was it due to the late reactions that let terror and radicalisation flourish in South India. Former officer of the Research and Analysis Wing, Amar Bhushan says that it is unfair to accuse the agencies of reacting late in South India.
