Pakistan's self-defeating policy - Vinay Kaura, Pioneer
Despite Islamabad's proclamations that it no longer distinguishes between ‘good' and ‘bad' terrorists, the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani Network have been spared by the Pakistan military. The international community must ask Islamabad to clarify its policy on terrorism.
Brexit: Revolt of the poor and marginalised - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer
Much of the early commentary following Britain’s sensational vote to quit the European Union (EU) was conspicuous by an aversion to admit that Brexit represents a revolt of the poor, marginalised working and middle classes that have long been at the mercy of a dehumanising system of mobile capital aggravated by cheap mobile labour. The fact that some racist attacks followed the June 23 referendum does not mean that the vote was principally motivated by racism, as some have insinuated.
Curious twists to jehad in Dhaka - Swapan Dasgupta, Pioneer
The attack on a posh restaurant in the Gulshan area of Dhaka and the explosions at an Eid gathering in Kishoreganj may have occurred in neighbouring Bangladesh, but they have sent shock waves in India. Coupled with the arrest of members of a suspected ISIS cell in Hyderabad, the news that a clutch of people from Kerala have left the country to fight in Syria-Iraq and the invocation by the ISIS to Indian adherents to stage ‘lone wolf’ attacks, the incidents in Bangladesh have raised the possibility of similar attacks happening in India.
ISIS down, not out: Ways to kill it - Ashok Behuria, Pioneer
Close on the heels of the Holey Artisan Bakery attack in Dhaka’s posh Gulshan area on July 1, came the brutal attack on a multi-storeyed shopping mall in one of busiest corners of Baghdad on July 3. The former attack, orchestrated by a team of seven young men of decent pedigree, claimed 22 lives,  most of them foreigners. The latter, caused by a suicide truck bomber, has so far claimed 250 lives, most of them Shias.
Terror in Bangladesh by the privileged - Hiranmay Karlekar, Pioneer
A large number of people, particularly in Bangladesh, are shocked by the fact that all except two of the terrorists perpetrating unspeakable acts of savagery during their capture of a Dhaka restaurant on the night of July 1 to July 2 were from affluent families and have been to some of the best schools in the country.
Border disputes, emerging problems, major challenge to India China ties: China - Indian Express
“As the two neighbouring countries, China and India have historical issues such as the border dispute and also some emerging new issues with the development of the relations between the two countries. How to deal with these issues is a major challenge for the relationship between the two countries,” Chinese Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs Li Huilai said.
Telling Them Why - Khaled Ahmed, Indian Express
Recent developments signal the need for change in Pakistan’s strategic outlook. There is alarm over India’s recent moves in Afghanistan and Iran, two of its neighbours that feel threatened by Pakistan. The Indian PM has gone to the US after the two issued warnings to Pakistan over safe havens in Pakistan still available to terrorists who strike across borders. 
New face of the Taliban - Pioneer
Voicing serious concern on the deteriorating security scenario in Afghanistan, India's demand for United Nations sanctions against the new Taliban chief Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada is considered timely action which represents the country's stand on global proliferation of terrorism. India must pursue it and take up the issue with major terror-affected nations like the US, China and the European Union.
Xenophobia in UK - Sunanda K Datta-Ray, Deccan Chronicle
It will be the death of an international ideal if Britain votes on Thursday to leave the European Union. Listening to Sunday’s orations at Speakers Corner — the bit of London’s Hyde Park where Krishna Menon once mounted a soapbox to demand Indian Independence — I wondered how many speak up for remaining in the EU. We’ll know on Friday after the June 23 referendum.
Restricted religious freedom in China - Claude Arpi, Pioneer
Beijing insists that there is no religious discrimination in China, particularly against the Muslim populations (Uyghurs) of Xinjiang. Religious freedom has reached an ‘unparalleled’ level; it is at least what a document published by the State Council Information Office in Beijing on religious freedom in Xinjiang says. The publication coincides with the sensitive month of Ramzan.
