In my last post, I considered one factor contributing to mass violence—a form of domestic terrorism–in the United States. That factor is the corrupting of the U.S. Constitution by extremist right wing groups—often supported by and aligned with the National Rifle Association.Continue

Self-identified former “extremists” and survivors have formed a social network aimed at helping young people avoid political violence and gang culture. The Against Violent Extremism network believes that radicalization is less of a religious and ideological issue…Continue

About the book:

In this groundbreaking work, Vijay Mehta shows how attempts at peaceful national development are routinely blocked by Western powers. He locates the 2008 financial crisis in US attempts to…

Commenting on the Occupy Wall St protests recently, the anti-war activist Matthew Good complained that protesters were wasting their time camping in downtown Manhattan. They should, he argued, be gathering around the Pentagon. After all, the 700 billion dollars that US spent bailing out the bankers is a pittance when set against the annual one trillion dollar US defence budget.
His analysis assumed that the issues of rogue banks and outlandish defence spending were separate. Yet our…Continue

The recent terrorist tragedy in Norway has garnered major attention in the news as of late, and also sparked much outrage at the instant accusations launched against Muslims for the attack. The media ran purely on speculation that the attacks were linked to an Islamist group based on incomplete and unverified information, and although the real culprit, a blonde and blue eyed Norwegian, has now been caught, the vast majority of the media has shown that so-called “Islamic” terrorists and…Continue

Getting a second life – the victim of June 13, 2011 suicide bombing speaks.
Monday June 13, 2011 was another day at work, and Waseem Umar went to the bank at about 2:30 pm, for a transaction. Parking his motorbike in front of the bank next door like so many times before, he admired the red colors of its signage. The guard at the door frisked him with a hand held metal detector, and waved him in.
As he sat with the customer service executive, she asked him for…Continue
It has been a week since I arrived back in my home city, Islamabad. However, I do not feel the same attachment for the place, as it feels alien to me now. The city, being the capital of Pakistan, has perhaps the largest number of security checkpoints in the country, manned by both police and army personnel. The scale of security apparatus has both pros and…Continue

in losing you
i have lost
against all edicts
from pulpits high
day in day out
to start my day
the dusk of which
took you away
where can i again
for it was you
i believe that general zia ul haq, the military ruler of Pakistan from 1977 till 1988 was the architect of the taliban phenomena, and the current situation we face is a consequence of his rule.
zia ul haq
had you known
how much we would have
to do more
to please the masters of fate,
keep your double clasp,
with the double hug in place,
and the grin and uniform intact.
would you still have

The 2010 Democracy Index, developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has just been released.
It shows a decline in democracy over the last 2 years. The Index correlates well with the Global Peace Index but one of its sub-components, the well-functioning of government, correlates even strongly with peace.
The EIU states "Problems in the functioning of democracy in leading Western states diminish the scope for credible external democracy promotion. The…Continue
