South Asia needs a common human rights organisation
From Kathmandu to Kabul and Dhaka to Delhi, there is growing recognition that regional cooperation in South Asia would remain incomplete unless a culture of respect for the basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the region’s peoples is fostered through legal guarantees and effective enforcement.

Competitive struggle among Jihadis as al-Qaeda looses its sheen
On September 3, al-Qaeda’s media arm, al-Sahab Media, released one of the strangest videos in the movement’s history, announcing the formation of a new branch of “al-Qaeda in the South Asian Subcontinent.” Strange, because of the panicked tone of the three separate statements in the video, and because its content has very little to do with South Asia.

The video betrays a deep anxiety among al-Qaeda’s original leadership about its future as the guiding movement in the global jihad.
