More tourists doesn’t mean Kashmir is ‘normal’. ‘Naya Kashmir’ is still not in sight

Besides civilian killings, the entry of 'hybrid' or 'part-time' terrorists being recruited and trained online call into question Modi govt's claims about normalcy in Kashmir.

Let’s discuss: Is Modi govt’s Kashmir policy a success, failure or same old muddling along?

Modi govt's Kashmir policy has been a success in changing status of state & redefining what remains negotiable. To expect it was going to end terror & alienation was wishful thinking.

Modi govt’s Kashmir policy enters next phase with focus on reforms & political engagement

J&K administration has begun the process of conducting polls of district councils, amended land laws, resolved the long-pending issue of permanent resident certificates, among others.

Kashmir policy can’t just be about Army flaunting the ‘kills’

Counter-terrrosim is not the main job of Indian Army and heavy deployment in such operations has led to a ‘Pakistan-centric thinking’, which is harmful.

From AFSPA to street protests, Modi govt needs new thinking in J&K with Article 370 gone

Abrogation of Article 370 is an opportunity for India to end a decades-old conflict. Here’s what Modi govt must do to avail it.

Modi’s Kashmir move is biggest test for Indian democracy – and for the silent liberals

BJP is so convinced about the lack of support for its move in Kashmir that it has brought in even more troops to maintain ‘law and order’.

Modi’s Mission Kashmir was to make scrapping of Article 35A a necessity. That moment is now

If Modi govt fails to scrap Article 35A now, it will be loss of face for Delhi and a de facto surrender of Kashmir to transnational terror groups.

Almost 4,000 enrol for IAF’s Agnipath recruitment scheme on day 1 of online registrations

These registrations pertain to the Indian Air Force's Agniveer Vayu programme. The online portal for the first phase was opened at 10 am Friday, and will close on 5 July.

With Agnipath, Modi govt’s shock & awe doctrine may have misfired a vital reform, yet again

Modi govt's biggest flaw has been its disinclination to accept limitations of electoral majorities. This ruined land acquisition and farm reform, stalled labour codes.
