A zero-sum game

The rumour doing the rounds in Islamabad is that the Pakistan army may be planning to conduct an operation in North Waziristan (NW), a restive area that borders Afghanistan. Ayesha Siddiqa writes.

Inch by painful inch

India must realise that Pakistan is trying to turn the direction of ties away from conflict to engagement. It hopes that the present phase of the peace process becomes sustainable. Ayesha Siddiqa writes.

Caught in a vortex

Six decades after independence, the Pakistani State and society today stand irretrievably close to a right-wing religious identity. Ayesha Siddiqa writes.

An inconvenient truth

The civilian government and the judiciary in Pakistan may not muster enough courage to ensure a speedy trial of the seven 26/11 accused. Ayesha Siddiqa  writes.

A fierce competition

The new generation of Pakistani leaders must provide new slogans and effectiveness in service delivery to young voters instead of reminding them of old injustices. Ayesha Siddiqa writes.
