Pakistan and Bangladesh
The theme of these articles is a lack of dependable democratic stewardship, and leadership, which includes failure to respond to citizens' needs due to social chaos and civil unrest. Bangladesh is mired in political corruption; Pakistan is engaged in jihadist-related civil strife and has struggled historically with floods, hostility and distrust vis-a-vis India and Afghanistan -- in part due to the use of "relentless propaganda" (Khan, 2010).

But if a government is forced to bow down to a corrupt political party, it seems that it is already dysfunctional. The BBC reported that Bangladesh is ranked "as the most corrupt country on earth" and that "corruption is widespread" (Rahman, 2014). Meanwhile when an eight-story garment factory building collapsed in Bangladesh on April 24, 2013 "scores of people were killed" and the terrible plight of factory workers was again shown to the world (Bari, 2013). There is in Bangladesh "…a deep-rooted political and economic corruption" of the ruling class that don't care of workers' safety is jeopardized.

' Indians across the political spectrum, especially the country's powerful nuclear weapons establishment, are critical of the NPT, arguing that it unfairly warps international hierarchies to the disadvantage of the non-nuclear-weapon states" (1998:15). In its efforts to balance the pressures from the international community with its own self-interests in formulating foreign policies, the position adopted by India has been starkly different than other countries. In this regard, Karp concludes that,
