Pakistan’s Water Woes: India Bashing Continues at Higher levels!

Paper No. 6469           Dated 10-Dec-2018

By S.Chandrasekharan.

On 29th October, the Supreme Court of Pakistan overturned an order of the Lahore High Court and directed to introduce blocking of Indian Content in TV Channels.  This ruling came after Pakistan accused India of shrinking the flow of Water into Pakistan.

It is curious that the court did not examine any evidence oral or documentary to examine the accusation of India being held responsible for the “shrinkage” of water in Pakistan.

By R.M.Panda

China's natural Allies -Pakistan and North Korea in Economic Distress

Paper No. 6449          Dated 21-Oct-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan and North Korea long maintained by me as China’s only ‘Natural Allies’ are in an acute economic distress.
