By Imad Zafar Published: April 11, 2019 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email While Pakistan continues to voice the plight of Kashmiris and Indian Muslims, its prime minister should have stayed silent instead of ‘endorsing’ Modi. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, while talking to Reuters, gave a statement that really shocked the diplomatic world. Referring to the Indian elections, he said: “Perhaps if the BJP – a right-wing party – wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached.” India’s General Elections have started from today, April 11th, and will continue till the end of next month. The most surprising aspect about Imran’s statement is that it came just a day before the start of the first round of the Indian elections. Usually, world leaders avoid giving out statements that seemingly endorse any political party of a foreign country as it is a domestic matter at the end of the day and they want to be … [Read more...] about While endorsing Modi, did Imran Khan forget the plight of Kashmiris and Indian Muslims?

MUMBAI--Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal rose from humble beginnings to be undisputed king of India's skies. But now, at 69, massive debts have forced him to cede control of the pioneering airline he founded. Goyal stepped down as Jet chairman Monday and quit its board as part of a rescue plan for the beleaguered carrier, marking the end of an era in Indian aviation. "For the past 25 years, Jet Airways has been a way of life for me," Goyal said in an email to Jet customers on Tuesday. "I would be lying, if I said this was not an emotional moment for me," he added. Goyal was born in Punjab state in 1949. His childhood was marked by financial hardship after his jewelry dealer father died young. The future entrepreneur started his working life by selling tickets in his uncle's travel agency, making just 2,300 rupees a month ($33.40) in today's money. There was little to suggest the fame and fortune that would come. After a stint working as a public relations manager for Iraqi … [Read more...] about End of an era in Indian aviation as Goyal bows out
GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer is leading a drive to reward 300,000 Indian visa workers for taking college graduate jobs from at least 200,000 young middle aged or older American graduates. Via Twitter, the North Dakota Senator is pushing the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” which was also championed by former GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder until he lost his 2018 election.The legislation “is about exactly that: fairness,” Cramer tweeted. “The long wait for these green cards is a disservice to legal immigrants and to the potential of the American economy. Let’s get this passed.” But Cramer’s bill does not offer fairness or safeguards to the many Americans who are losing careers or starter jobs to the imported army of roughly 500,000 Indian workers and recruiters, said Dawn Collins, a former vice-president at J.P. Morgan Chase bank. Casey and other American professionals were forced out of their software jobs in 2016 to make … [Read more...] about GOP Senators Push Green Card Rewards for Indian Visa Workers Who Take College Jobs in U.S.

Asian shares barely moved on Monday as investors were unable to shake worries about global growth, U.S. politics and the Sino-U.S. trade war, keeping the safe haven dollar near a six-week top against major currencies. Chinese stock indexes played catch-up when reopening after a week-long break. Gains came as the commerce ministry said retail earnings during the Lunar New Year holiday jumped 8.5 percent from the period last year, even though growth in the world's second largest economy is slowing. China's blue-chip index surged 1.6 percent while Shanghai's SSE Composite climbed 1.2 percent. Australian stocks recouped some losses to end 0.2 percent lower while South Korea's KOSPI index was up 0.2 percent. Indonesian and Indian benchmarks were in the red. That left MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan were slightly firmer after it was toppled from a four-month top on Friday. Trading volumes were generally light, with Japan on public holiday. "Ranges have been on … [Read more...] about Asian shares search for direction as U.S.-China trade talks begin
