From around the World

We are today living in a world of increasing interconnectedness made possible because of intensification of economic, social and political interaction across theview of earth from spaceborders, caused by revolutions in communications, IT, air-travel, and mass immigration. Events in one corner of the world impact the rest of it. Keeping in view these realities, GBPost aims to bring news items from around the globe and from across Pakistan, in order to be aware of events and processes that help shape the direction of local, regional and global change. In addition we are intending to feature leading articles, essays, and provide information on key developments in science, technology, economics, and politics.

Therefore, we invite you to discuss and express your free opinion and analysis on world events, issues, and challenges. You might be interested to look by raising questions as follows.

  • How to deal with environmental catastrophe? What is global warming?
  • How terrorism and mass violence is shaping and changing the nature of social relations across the globe.
  • What is the role of financial markets, capital in and outflows, technology transfer etc.
  • What are nuclear weapons, why do we need them in Pakistan? Should the people of GB have any particular views on Pakistan’s nuclear capability etc.

We sincerely hope that you will find our endeavors worthwhile. Should you have any suggestions at this point in time, please feel free to contact us. If you have comments, ideas or wish to volunteer for this noble mission please write to us.

    In your archives, you have posted a specific threat from the Taliban to the Ismailis. I am currently working on an asylum case for an Ismaili family from Pakistan, and getting a hard copy of this threat would be extremely helpful. I have tried calling Jang News in Pakistan, but no one spoke English. Do you have any way of getting access to it, or know of a way that I could get a hard copy?

    Thanks so much for your help.
