Isn't that funny how both Khan and the opposition both are so obedient to US interests in your view.

Neither Khan nor the opposition. It's the military which survives on (and thrives on) military aid by the US.

Civilian governments don't matter when it comes to US-Pakistan relations, or, if they try to chart an independent course for Pakistan like Khan tried, can be dealt with.

Has nothing to do with the US. Khan said so

Forced to say so by the military.

Suits the US, since they need to use Pakistan's airspace to fly drones to Afghanistan and can't have Pakistan fully under China’s thumb.

The election is a farce anyway with the most popular (and least corrupt) politician in jail on trumped up charges just because he refused to toe the line of the military and wanted to align with Russia.

The Biden administration must be happy that they have managed to stifle whatever democracy was left in Pakistan.

Trump-Xi-Putin working together to undermine democracy but we aren't there yet.

Yeah Trump did not get played by Xi in San Francisco, and it’s the Biden administration as much as any previous which has supported dictatorships like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

Your fake soundbites about 'democracy' ring hollow.

What's that got to do with Trudeau denouncing Islamophobia? Sure seem to be a lot of people upset about Islamophobia being denounced.

The question is why only denounce Islamophobia while looking the other way when places of worship of other religions are being attacked.

A couple of days ago the largest ever drug bust in the Prairies occurred, but Trudeau will never address the tons of meth and fentanyl being brought in because the major players in the drug trade are another one of his favorite vote bank.

But eating meat once a week or once a month makes you vegetarian in the eyes of India. Even the article discusses this point.

LOL.

I prefer vegetarian cuisine but that does not make me a vegetarian. Whatever the 'eyes of India' think about it.

If you're going to argue about the ethnic similarities between Muslims and Non-Muslim Indians then you're going to have a hard time. You could write an encyclopedia about the ethnic differences that Muslim communities have.

This is not just off-topic but also incorrect. Muslims are a religion, not an ethnicity.

There are Arab Muslims, African Muslims, Central Asian Muslims, Caucasian Muslims and Indian Muslims.

Though of course you would say that Indian Muslims are not Indian at all.

The majority Hindus are vegetarian.

If you bother going through the link you yourself have shared, it reiterates that only 44 percent of Hindus consider themselves vegetarian.

But keep on bringing arguments out of your rear because it fulfills your agenda.

If it uses a meat product then it's likely to be a Muslim dish. Most Indian dishes such as (Hindu/Buddhist/Jain...) rarely use meat at least historically.

LOL your Muslim obsession again.

Butter Chicken was invented by KL Gujral and KL Jaggi in their restaurant Moti Mahal, both of whom were Punjabi Hindus who migrated from Pakistan to India after Partition.

Many Hindus are non-vegetarian, and North Indians love Mughlai cuisine. Just try asking a Bengali Hindu to go without fish for a few days.

Chicken Tikka Masala is the most popular curry dish in the UK. That is the same as Butter Chicken Curry in India.

Both dishes are actually different.

The list of illustrious guests at Moti Mahal include Richard Nixon and Justin Trudeau.

Considering that both turned out to be against India for different reasons, could it be that the Butter Chicken that they had over there gave them the Delhi Belly?

It's well known in Delhi's culinary circles that Kundan Lal Gujral and Kundan Lal Jaggi both were inventors of the dish and partners in Moti Mahal.

However, seems that the Gujrals have totally removed Jaggi's name and refuse to give him any credit after they parted ways.

That is why you don't get severe controversy in areas with large Hindu-Christian populations because they are ethnically more similar.

No one trying to make serious arguments would call a NorthEast Indian ethnically similar to say, a South Indian or a North Indian.

You are confused between religion and ethnicity which are 2 different things.

Posted in: U.S. to keep supporting Ukraine if Trump returns to power: Pompeo See in context

Unconditional ceasefires hardly require any negotiation.

That's shifting of goalposts.

A few months ago most of the Ukraine supporting liberals were so confident that the war will be over with Russians running back with their tails between their legs. Turned out it was just bluster to keep the taps open.

Ukraine decides its future.

Ukraine’s donors decide its future. It should be obvious to anyone.

nothing to negotiate and no levers that should be pushed.

Yeah because the liberals will lose face if they admit otherwise. A war that could have ended a year ago will get dragged further because of the obstinacy of the liberals, and their obstinate-in-chief.

we do know that the Rupee is all that matters.

Or the dollars. That's what keeps the proxy war going I suppose.

Posted in: Indigenous faithful and Christians work with environmentalists to conserve India's sacred forests See in context

But most of that is aimed at Muslims who are often viewed as ethnically different from Non-Muslism.

As this article suggests the Christians tend to be viewed as being more ethnically Indian/Hindu. Its the same throughout South Asia, especially South India where there are more Christians than Muslims traditionally.

Nowhere does the article suggest that. The Indigenous tribal communities of the North East were not Hindu either and their forest rituals had nothing to do with Hinduism. Many were converted to Christianity by the British and then some later adopted Hinduism but both are far removed from their Indigenous culture.

Besides, ask any NorthEast Indian if he has never been at the receiving end of racism in the Indian mainland and your half baked arguments will fall flat then and there.

They have also been affected by the Indigenous population’s conversion to Christianity, which began in 19th century under British rule.

They viewed their new religion as the light and these rituals as darkness, as pagan or even evil.

Yet another damage that the British rule brought to India. The British think that they did some great favour to inferior races by colonizing the world, and the missionaries justified all the worse parts of colonialism by arguing that they were spreading the light in the darkness.

Posted in: U.S. to keep supporting Ukraine if Trump returns to power: Pompeo See in context

He is speaking in reverse.

The fact is that even if Biden returns to power, the Biden administration will ask Ukraine to go for a settlement. It should be quite clear to the State Department and the Department of Defense that there is no chance Ukraine will regain the territories it lost.

But they are not in a position to admit it because it will make the Biden administration look weak and vindicate the position of the other side.

Some of the 'expert' commentators on here were claiming the Ukraine will regain Crimea this summer, and this Russia-Ukraine conflict is existential for the West. This was hyperbole of the highest order.

Americans and Ukrainians can thank Biden for spending 75 billion USD on Ukraine (for different reasons), and Kyiv is still standing whereas Crimea is still under Russian control. Both sides have a chance to walk away with whatever they have, but the Biden administration will not allow that to happen because it's election year.

Once the election is out of the way and in the slim chance that Biden returns to power, they will start singing a different tune and push Zelensky towards negotiating with Russia.

The rest of the world in the meantime has already moved on to more pressing problems.
