An aurat march in Karachi | @auratmarch2020 | Instagram

Asking for consent is revolutionary in Pakistan. That is why Aurat March is creating ripples

Next time a man asks me why Pakistani women only complain instead of doing something, I will happily shove pictures from the Aurat March in his face.

Lahore smog

The Lahore smog isn’t Indian farmers’ fault alone. Pakistan should look within

The interesting thing about the ‘Lahore Smog’ is that the air pollution situation is neither limited to Lahore nor is it technically smog.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan

Pakistan’s verbose foreign minister ruined Kashmir case. Imran Khan at UN now the only hope

One doesn’t expect the UN to deliver justice on the horrifying human rights situation in Kashmir. Still, international opinion matters.
India's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru

If Pakistan wants moon landing, it needs to chase Nehru-built culture of science

Credit for India’s Chandrayaan-2 should go to Nehru. If Modi had been first PM, instead of astronomy, India would be pursuing astrology.

Budget 2020 is now useless. Modi govt must present a new one

Covid has ensured Modi govt won’t meet 20% growth in tax collection target. That would be a terrible assumption to make in a pandemic-hit economy.

Can schools & students be trusted with Covid norms or should classes begin as curve flattens?

Chinese troops present in sizeable numbers at LAC, India has done what’s needed: Rajnath

Defence Minister says India and China perceive LAC differently, leading to regular jostling; Beijing ‘should seriously deliberate’ and resolve the issue amicably.

The Chinese are so predictable, Modi & Shah should’ve seen them coming on 5 August 2019

India should’ve anticipated the Chinese appearance in Ladakh, even the timing of it, when the status of Jammu & Kashmir was changed.
