Re: J&K Union Territory-2019

I find it interesting that Pakistan is quick to forget about how the muslims in China are being treated because its in their self-interest to do so. They are basically doing the exact same thing to Uighurs as the Arab world is doing to them. I am also bit surprised that this point is not hammered mo...

Re: Mangalyaan : ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission

Well, I have to say that after the very initial article from BBC with the typical "poor bla bla" attached in the end, they have done a pretty good coverage. All the subsequent articles seem to indicate a change in perspective. For example, this one even criticizes such patronizing criticis...

Re: Exit Polls & Discussion 2014 Elections
