Gautam Gambhir Wants India to Ban Pakistanis From All Industries

April 27, 2018 (DESPARDES/PKONWEB) — Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has said that India should ban Pakistanis from all industries, including music and film industries instead of just focusing on ending cricketing ties between the two countries.

By MOHAMMED AZHAR ALI KHAN: United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says that the United Nations is following developments in Kashmir “closely” – presumably the ceasefire violations in Kashmir by Indian and Pakistani forces and the unrest in Indian Kashmir. But the solution lies not with the United Nations – which arranged a cease-fire in 1949 and has largely maintained it – but with India, Pakistan and the Kashmiris. There are subtle signals that the two countries are beginning to realize that the Kashmir dispute is an albatross that is shacklingRead More
