Fears grow for British man detained in Pakistan-administered Kashmir

first_img– Advertisement – Mainstream political leaders, and many ordinary people in Pakistani-administered Kashmir, are supportive of the Pakistani state, which has been accused by India of backing separatist militants. However, voices in Pakistani-administered Kashmir calling for complete independence, as opposed to joining with Pakistan, have been deliberately stifled. The region’s constitution forbids any activities deemed “prejudicial or detrimental to, the ideology of the State’s accession to Pakistan”. Ms Rajput told the BBC the detention of her husband shows the “hypocrisy” of Pakistan’s position. last_img read more

Celtic Revival

first_imgBrad Stevens, who became a famous coach by taking the Butler Bulldogs to two NCAA finals, is now the head coach of the Boston Celtics.  I was skeptical about whether he could make the transition to the pro ranks because of his mild-mannered appearance as a college coach.  His fierce competitiveness has brought the Celtics back to the forefront; however, his team lost in the Eastern finals to the Cavaliers this year.The Celtics are predicted to dominate the Eastern Conference the next few years because they have many first-round draft picks.  Danny Ainge, their general manager, has made some schrewd trades to stockpile all of these top draft picks.  With Brad Stevens leading the team and a core of young players, they will challenge Cleveland and LeBron James next year.  I am not a pro fan per se, but I am a Brad Stevens backer.last_img read more
