Tourism in Pakistan : An Untapped Potential
Tourism has approximatly 10.5 per cent share in Global GDP. It contributes 3.5 per cent of total GDP of Asia. Despite huge potential, Pakistan has very weak tourism industry. The snow-covered Himalayas, lush green valleys, charismatic lakes and meadows, diverse cultures and historical buildings present tremendous opportunities for tourism industry.

Major U.S. Military Contractors Stand to Reap Huge Windfalls from Escalation of Conflict with Iran
Meet the CEOs Raking It in from Trump’s Aggression toward Iran
CEOs of major U.S. military contractors stand to reap huge windfalls from the escalation of conflict with Iran. This was evident in the immediate aftermath of the U.S. assassination of a top Iranian military official last week. As soon as the news reached financial markets, these companies’ share prices spiked, inflating the value of their executives’ stock-based pay.
I took a look at how the CEOs at the top five Pentagon contractors were affected by this surge, using the most recent SEC information on their stock holdings.
Northrop Grumman executives saw the biggest increase in the value of their stocks after the U.S. airstrike that killed Qasem Suleimani on January 2. Shares in the B-2 bomber maker rose 5.43 percent by the end of trading…

Silencing The Truth
Truth indeed is a powerful weapon, which is perhaps the reason why social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube have now decided to filter any content which mentions Kashmir. https://twitter.com/arsched/status/1163803181090070528 https://twitter.com/AliJaved24/status/1163601741096640513 Ever since 5 August when the Indian authorities imposed a curfew in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, many activists from around …

NZ Mosque Shooter Either Ex-Military or Trained by Ex-Military?
In my view, the most lucid commentary on yesterday’s mosque shooting in Christchurch comes from international security analyst Dr Paul G Buchanan, director of 36th Parallel Assessments. The latter is a non-partisan non-governmental geopolitical risk and strategic analysis consultancy located in Auckland, New Zealand.
Buchanan, an American expatriate, is a former intelligence and defense policy analyst and consultant to US government security agencies.
As quoted in a Radio New Zealand interview, Buchanan points out that automatic and semi-automatic weapons are extremely hard to come by in New Zealand without a license. “The weapon, from what I can tell, may have been modified. It takes some technical skills to modify a hunting weapon into something that’s semi-automatic. [The shooter] had high capacity magazines and may have used a bump stock which was used by the Las Vegas shooter.
Buchanana adds that the shooter’s skill set indicates he is…

Eight Thoughts On The Christchurch Attack
Source: Eight Thoughts On The Christchurch Attack – Caitlin Johnstone – Medium
With permission from
Three people are currently in custody in New Zealand for terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch. As of this writing, 49 people are dead and 48 people are being treated for gunshot wounds. Explosives were found in two vehicles but none were detonated. It was the worst attack of its kind in New Zealand’s history.
One of the three individuals, a 28 year-old Australian man, live-streamed himself shooting mosque attendees and published a white nationalist manifesto explaining his motives. I don’t feel like linking to either of these things, the former because sharing it would be gross and the latter because the manifesto contains calls for further acts of terrorism and suggestions as to how they might be carried out, as well as instructions on how best to circulate white nationalist…

Sir Syed’s relevance in contemporary India
By Javid Ahmad Ahanger
The founder of Aligarh Muslim University, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s 201st birth anniversary was celebrated on 17 October 2018 at a time when the whole debate is about nationalism and hyper-nationalism in India. We are living in strange times where false narratives are constructed by none other than ruling establishment [BJP] to push their political project. The party is working overtime to erase the past and create new versions of past on falsehood and lie. The past lies are now accepted as final truths because the rulers of the day don’t like to accept the past reality.
The divisive politics of right-wing parties is the only accepted norm in present-day India. From South to North and East to West, the only principle that has helped the ruling establishment to capture power is mobilizing the voters on a communal platform and other similar issues. It is…
