  • Modi's Pakistan policy is a giant mess: Why Masarat Alam must be celebrating

    Narendra Modis Kashmir policy is in tatters, characterized by U-turns and chronic indecisiveness in tackling the Hurriyat and its sponsors like America and Pakistan. CIA played a key role in Hurriyats birth in 1993 to browbeat India on the nuclear front. Pakistan is just a Washington proxy the cats paw, as it were.And Swami Agnivesh, to be honest, is only an item girl in a rapidly unfolding thriller called Kashmir. My sincere advice: Dont take your eyes off Masarat Alam whose arrest is being touted by the BJP as the biggest achievement after the 3: 67 humiliation in Delhi at AAPs hand.Masarat, to be sure, didnt go to jail kicking, screaming and crying.
