Khawar Ghumman

ISLAMABAD: Following the successful show of power by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) over the weekend in Lahore, the ruling PML-N has come under pressure from its own ranks to convene a meeting of its Central Working Committee (CWC) to construct its own response to the opponents.

The CWC last time met well before last year’s general elections to sanction allotment of tickets to the party candidates.

Analysis: Our enemy, their enemy

Ismail Khan

At least in tactical terms, the US and Pakistan appear to be on the same page — both are hunting their enemies in our north-western border region and that’s where there is convergence. There is divergence though when it comes to making a distinction between ‘our enemy’ and ‘their enemy’.

Pakistan’s F-16s pound targets in the remote corners of North Waziristan to take out local and foreign militants just when American drones sharing the same airspace target local and foreign militants around the same area.

“I WILL never go back to India, but sooner or later I’ll also leave this place,” says Mahesh Kumar, who is in his mid-40s, as he spares me a moment while attending to customers at his bustling general store in the Hindu mohalla. This is in Thul, a small town in Jacobabad district that takes its name from the Sindhi word for ‘stupa’.

Present-day Thul bears the remnants of a decaying European township. Residents here tell me stirring stories of the resilience of Hindus and Muslims who came to each other’s rescue during the devastating floods of 2010 that inundated every village in the area.

IS militants in Syria attacked


BEIRUT: US warplanes attacked Islamic State targets in Syria overnight, in raids that a group monitoring the war said killed civilians as well as jihadist fighters.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes hit mills and grain storage areas in the northern Syrian town of Manbij, in an area controlled by Islamic State, killing at least two civilian workers.

New Afghan president sworn in


KABUL: Afghanistan inaugurated its first new president in a decade on Monday, swearing in technocrat Ashraf Ghani to head a power-sharing government just as the withdrawal of most foreign troops presents a crucial test.

The first democratic handover of power in Afghan history has been far from smooth: the deal for a unity government was cobbled together after months of deadlock over a vote in which both Mr Ghani and opponent Mr Abdullah Abdullah claimed victory.
