As regional tensions rise, what are the security relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia ahead?
It's been a rough couple of weeks for both Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Riyadh took a major hit to its Aramco oil refinery earlier last month, paving the way for a "maximum pressure operation" toward Tehran and more U.S. forces in the kingdom
On the other side, the attempts of Islamabad to globalize the Kashmir issue are now followed by security assurances for the kingdom and a rare attempt at Gulf mediation. In order to maintain its consistent support for Riyadh, without sacrificing neutrality towards Tehran, Pakistan should concentrate its aid on Saudi military capabilities rather than "ambitions" and relate future efforts to the larger cause of regional peace.
The key to Pakistan's success with Saudi Arabia has been its basic strategic distinction: to support the external security interests of the Kingdom without acting as an inlet of internal convergence. Almost all of the forces that have had a voice in Riyadh's foreign policy planning have ended up in practice. Washington's joint military operations in Syria and Yemen, Tel Aviv and Riyadh's brazen armed repression of Tehran, the UAE's revived determination to suppress Houthi insurgents, and the Saudi-led bloc's coordinated isolation of Iran and its allies.
A city Durga Puja council has set off a discussion by playing Azaan- - a Muslim call for petition - alongside Sanskrit psalms as the signature music of the merriments. The coordinators says it was in accordance with the "mutual concordance" topic picked by the panel during the current year's puja. Santanu Singha, a Calcutta High Court legal counselor, said he documented an objection at Beleghata police headquarters on Friday blaming the coordinators for "irritating harmony and serenity" in West Bengal. Police, in any case, said they are yet to get a protest. "I was stunned to discover Azaan being played each 10-15 minutes inside the puja pandal. They are stating the topic is mutual congruity. What sort of collective agreement are they lecturing by harming the suppositions of Hindus during Durga Puja?" Mr Singha said on Monday. Mr Singha said he has chosen to move court against the coordinators. The main benefactor of the puja advisory group, Trinamool Congress MLA Paresh Pal, said the subject of the puja is "Amra Ek, Eka Noi" (We are one, not the only one). He said separated from Azaan, the ''Om'' mantra is likewise being played. Hindu Jagran Manch pioneer Vivek Singh additionally took steps to move court. "For the sake of puja topic, can we really play with the subject of Durga Puja, play with our religion. A FIR has been documented at Phoolbagan police headquarters and, if necessary, we will take the legitimate course against Paresh Pal and his partners," Mr Singh said. Paresh Pal, then again, said the puja pandal has themes of sanctuary, church and mosque to extend the soul of comprehensiveness. "The puja pandal has themes of a sanctuary, a congregation and a mosque to extend the soul of our comprehensiveness. We have attempted to demonstrate that humankind is above obstructions in our embellishment and signature tune," Mr Pal said.
