To shelter terrorists has become their calling card. US presidential debate: Poll says 62% viewers think Clinton won, only 27% say Trump did better.

What is the Indus Waters Treaty and can India abrogate it? Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called a meeting on Monday for a briefing on the implementation of the 56-year-old river water sharing Indus Waters Treaty between India and Pakistan, reported the Indian Express on Monday.

The report added that the meeting will only deal with the complexities of the treaty and is not likely to involve any move or plan towards its abrogation by India, a move which has been touted by media reports as a possible form of retaliation against Pakistan for last week's attack on an army camp in Uri. However, according to agency reports from Sunday night, the officials of the ministries of Water Resources and External Affairs have denied any such knowledge of a meeting being convened by the prime minister.

So, what is the treaty all about? Here is a primer: What is the Indus Waters Treaty? PSLV-C35 lifts off successfully with eight satellites. Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) satellite launching workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) has lifted off successfully with eight satellites. The vehicle was launched from the first launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The longest satellite launch event stretching over two hours and 15 minutes, started with the lift off of the vehicle PSLV-C35 at 9:12 a.m., with eight satellites, from the first launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

While SCATSAT-1 was launched soon after the launch of the vehicle, the rest of the seven satellites are expected to be launched between 11:25-11:28 a.m. This is the first mission of PSLV in which it will be launching its payloads into two different orbits. Neighbourhood watch: Why Pakistan is obsessed with Kashmir. In my experience, proffering the idea that Pakistan should abandon its quest for Kashmir is generally rewarded with condescension. Tell self-styled foreign policy experts of this hair-brained scheme, and you are met with the rhetorical equivalent of a patronising pat on the shoulder; one is not considered anti-national so much as naive, not unpatriotic but unserious.

In the real world of power politics, these strategic gurus tell us woolly-headed fools, states do not abandon their national interests, they fight for them — by hook or crook. Pakistan is no different. In this view, Kashmir is a vital symbolic and strategic interest, tied to both Pakistan’s foundational religious nationalism as well as its geopolitical goals. As such, it needs to continue the political, diplomatic, and yes, military struggle for Kashmir, no different to how big and small countries have fought for their interests for centuries.
