Massive protests erupt in PoK

Raising slogans of - Ye jo dehshatgardi hain, uske peechhe vardi hain (Administration/ uniform is behind the violation) - thousands of protestors have taken to streets for the past four days. Visuals showed political leaders, men, women and people from across strata taking to streets against the suppression by Pakistan government.

India snubs Pakistan at UN platforms

The protests may be viewed against Pakistan government's newfound attempts to project itself as the defender of human rights at global platforms such as the United Nations. Islamabad has vehemently attacked New Delhi alleging human rights violations in Kashmir. While India has vociferously thrashed Pakistan's attempts by highlighting how the minorities in that country have been reduced from 23 per cent at the time of independence to merely three-four per cent by now.

A ‘European Silk Road’

Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
