the scowler

the scowler
the scowler--Nawaz Sharif is always in a bad mood...and the howler that he crafted...the judges at least gave him enough for a crooked smile at shahbaz sharif

Mario Puzo...

Mario Puzo...
Marlon Brando still running away from facts...Asif Khoso should realize that theoretically the italian gangsters did not succeed as the FBI ran them into the ground and most gangsters were killed by their opponents...while the systems that they ran like gambling, prostitution and street protections were eventually legalized and the police became dominant..while a couple of mafiosi did get to run or become vice presidents in the USA the mafia was generally kept out of politics barring the local scene where prosecution attorneys and senators could be bought and sold...!nowhere has the military asked tobe involved in criminal investigations and the judiciary...The sindh example shows a complete failure of the JIT's when having to deal with upper level politicians or mafioso like altaf hussein...

military justice

military justice
The lillyputian PTI and PMLn who cannot standup against the army chief who wants tobe the CJ for terrorists...many suggest that other candidates for the army chief were dropped after they refused to endorse military courts...The current army chief too was considered opposed to army courts

prayers for those who are the eternal targets ...the people

prayers for those who are the eternal targets ...the people
children from a charity pray for the victims of terror...

the counter american

the counter american
The US has always been considered on the right path...but how can a upside down USA president be considered right...the multan metro is just added as a joke...!

the army chief who refuse to go away...!

the army chief who refuse to go away...!
the army chief who refuses to disappear...the army chief of islam...!Raheel Shareef has done an about turn and become the head of the Islamic Military Alliance...he had his first major dispute with Nawaz Sharif when as Army Chief he apparently refused to go to the aid of Saudia in yemen...he also refused to help out the than newly formed IMA even though its first objective was eliminating terrorism...something that can mean many things...he might have to pick up Nawaz Sharif when teh pakistanis get rid of him...! ...Dubbed the islamic nato it has a long way to go before it can setup military bases or invade another islamic country...just developing say a rudimentary airforce or forcing a terrible ruler to go away are some of the things he might have to do...other things that are more easier is advize on how to handle terrorism or destabilize a failed state...he has sufficient experience for that... whether he can handle a country that does not speak his language will probably be the test...!!

foreign policy

foreign policy
nawaz sharifs foreign policy...letter likhwao and let'm hunt some rare birds...maybe Trump and Obama will turn turtle if u let em hunt the rare birds too...and probably hu jintao and modi will probably run across to hunt birds too...!!!apparently Qatari's paid by punjab government with rare camels and buffalo's...!

a sage

a sage
Junaid Jamshed had studied mechanical engineering at the UET and was a pindi boy...i just learned belatedly he had some pukhtun roots...anyway he has been all over the place...a pop singer turned tableeghi...became famous in both roles...turned bussinessman...at home singing popular songs and naats as well as urging karachiites to clean the city...a true sage i must say...he went down smiling as his tableegh took him to chitral...The ATR could not handle it...its engine burst and a wing broke off...nothing the pilot could do...rumours about why a kakul major general was promoted...!! The PIA chairman seemed innocuos and unfit for his job...if the plane was fit than these things should not have happened...

a possible 2018 primeminister

a possible 2018 primeminister
even though he is not going tobe 45 years old the age required for a primeminister...!...!generally i regard Bilawal Zardari as a joker...he says that he will be primeminister in 2018...in that case he should start making speeches on serious matters that worry primeministers...i have here a selfie with Paris hilton...i suppose sindhi girls dont make him smile...!

The new and old

The new and old
The new and old...General Qamar Javed Bajwa...a rural from Gujranwala the general has been spending time in Rawalpindi waiting for his appointment...he superceded probably more favourable candidates and has the reccomendations of an indian army chief having served with him in Congo...has experience of Siachen and the LOC as well as murree, rawalpindi and islamabad and has almost assiduously avoided the western border wars...other aspirants had more experience fighting the war on terror...this the second time in a row that Nawaz Sharif has appointed the DG(inspection training and evaluation) as army chief...he probably has more experience of running the militaries schools rather than war...

the chinese juggernaut

the chinese juggernaut
chinese after big and small fish...trying to catch fish in rawal dam...the chinese seem tobe after our electricity production after the purchase of K-Electric...while electricity is cheaper in china it remains tobe seen if the chinese can reduce prices here

the kashmiris

the kashmiris
subjugated under the indian yolk with a weak frightened pakistan looking on the kashmiris have no other option but to fight

internal security

internal security
PMLn they say is not worried about internal security in pakistan but is palpably frightened of Hafiz Saeed frightening india...according to the Dawn's cyril almeida Nawaz Sharif threatened the army to control those who threaten india...hafiz saeed and mullah azhar in thenselves are innocuous beings and can hardly even organize anything to worry india...india has to control its own internal proplems itself and pakistan can not do it for them...this is a cartoon from teh economist depicting the syrian situation which is similar to discussions in pakistans internal security apparatus...which consists of teh direct army and ISI while teh punjab government relies on staged puls muqabila's

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived
altaf hussein given his trouble driven mentality again ordered riots in karachi and issued rash statements worse than achakzai's(perhaps) against the country given his indian driven nature...however farook sattar after consultations in jail said go to hell and took over the mqm in pakistan...usually unable to get together apart from under an altaf photo the mqm wala's agreed that altaf hussein was now history...if he had been brave and come back to face whatever music he would have have been the adored fat leader...but an end has to come and after money laundering, murder and other charges he was no longer the hero but a troubled fat man in england wanting just trouble to sustain himself ...maybe the mohajirs have finally arrived in pakistan...!!! just maybe...known as the uncontrolled troublemakers for decades they might finally have come home to roost..ending their long trek from indian slavery to being upright pakistanis whether sindhis or not...!...poor or rich...!

ethics

ethics
Pakistan armies senior officers have a low sense of propriety and ethics when it comes to land grabbing...why they are trying to grab qayyumabad's amenity plots is beyond understanding...qayumabad's amenity plots seem to have become a truck adda

flag waving

flag waving
flag waving will give us the confidence...pakistanis are so frightened of their lilliputian army failing to defend them that they more and more depend on the propaganda of flags to suggest that they like their country at least for a day...the only people protected in this country are the fauj, politicians,judges and beaurocrats...the rest are at the mercy of terrorists...!u will notice that even teh clock is surrounded by barbed wire...initially only teh american embassy was surrounded by barbed wire...than intelligence offices...now houses and schools too are surrounded by barbed wire...!

the chinese

the chinese
for the pakistanis the chinese were initially revered for providing us MIG-19's but now that they are after our jobs and our power plants many feel unnerved at a future where the chinese will have jobs and the baloch will just be looking on...u will need more than a hello and hi there than...!

bluntly corrupt

bluntly corrupt
The corrupt in pakistan...the thieves, criminals have more bravado, bluntness and can standup to the police , NAB, FIA as compared to the novice Imran Khan...one wonders who is the dupe...Raheel shareef or the people...as the jordanian crown prince said to him..."do u think u can really take on the israeli's or even the indians"...after almost ten years of fighting the fledgling taleban raheel shareef could only smile...!!

muk muka

muk muka
muk muka refers to police corruption...the PPP's zardari and even imran khan have already done their muk muka's with the rurals of raiwind...now coup plotters and article 6 accused too are doing it...is our judiciary really that dumb...maybe Ayyan Ali should have accompanied musharaf...actually he is just gone to get his HBL profits from the agha khan...!will be back after getting his spine repaired...! our doctors are so inept...?

attitude and wrong impressions

attitude and wrong impressions
wrong attitude and wrong impressions...what do u read in afridi's slumped shoulders and subjugated attitude..."u indians are so nice really i can play IPL too"...the army chief also seems tobe saying "if u are with me than go sit with your ministers Nawaz"...?

and in the Us

and in the Us
republicans move towards riots on the streets says the trigger happy trump...

syria...

syria...
god save us from the superpowers and the IS

who is teh problem...!

who is teh problem...!
Nawaz Sharif and General Raheel glowering at each other...both blaming each other for the fiasco in aiding the saudi's...the saudi's almost in dialogue mode with even the Houthis telling the iranians to butt out...

raheel shareef

raheel shareef
Raheel Shareef...!indispensable or a great general he is not...! however Asif Zardari suggests that he should decide/retire in October...tongue in cheek and not trouble the PPP too much...mqm however suggest that they are willing to cooperate in all non mqm criminal activities...!! PPP workers say that is not their view at all

corruption Inc...

corruption Inc...
Corruption Inc....while Nawaz Sharif gets his corruption payments from overseas as do the zardari's he is trying to assure asif zardari to come back...despite his involvements in terrorism and corruption...

the interiors funny side

the interiors funny side
the fledgling minister of interior is a funny character...little power but big on words

trucks

the new truck

PIA

PIA
PIA now has 1101 employees per plane a high never before experienced...an old PIA employee suggested that they have so many employees that they could fly/handle over a hundred planes..with oil prices down 30% PIA was at last profitable and Nawaz Sharif tried to make a quick buck like musharaf who ran away with the proceeds of PTCL and HBL...! however the employees a well paid and well fed horde said nothing doing...will the country benefit from privatisation we dont think so...the status quo also is no use to the people...so the government told airblue to start bringing on extra planes as the strike worsened...airblue owner is a federal minister and the PPP or mqm would both like the Rangers image hurt...the PIA unions are run by various political groups...!!!

current politics

current politics
pakistans current political policy...the SC, PPP and the army chief think alike...!!!

NSA

NSA
after Nawaz Sharif's pro hindu-houthi-shiite policies unnerved the army they took over the national security advisorship

extreme soceity

extreme soceity
india is an extreme one sided hindu soceity unable to tolerate other religions or even opinions..the modi support group shiv sena blackens a member of the extremist BJP for supporting a book.....india despite having 30% minorities only as a few minority members of parliament and recently also killed a muslim on just the suspicion of eating beef...

problems for the rich in pakistan

problems for the rich in pakistan
The Army and Rangers are trying to contain ethnic terrorism in karachi and taleban/ sectarianism thru financial choking...while seminaries are generally dependent on friday collections,hides,zakat,fitrana and some arab donations the ethnic groups sindhi, mohajir and baloch have a more varied international collection routine...the real terrorists in Fata donot seem to have any monetary problems...private schools and terrorism are the biggest risks that are felt by the rich in pakistan...security guards, bullet proof vehicles and high fees drain some people's reserves...private school fees are so high that nobody from the low-middle income group can even think of them...even the army charges civilians high fees while faujis get thru free in military run institutions...very few top notch students however emerge from the private and army schools as the majority are dependent on poorly run government schools...

the new justice system

the new justice system
the new tarazoo designed by Justice Nasir ul Mulk...in previous era's it was unthinkable ...but in Nawaz Sharifs convoluted mind anything goes

the fauj

the fauj
people seem extraordinarily frightened of anti army comments...most people restrict themselves to "we love the army' apart from the mqm and altaf hussein who hate the army...while most officers are theoretically properly trained they have a love tobe in the administration which frightens mostly politicians...so an anti army statement gets a barrage of criticism...as everyone knows a coup just requires a brigadier to go and takeover the primeministers office and residence...while raheel sharif does not look coup material the way ex faujis talk him up everyone keeps getting alarmed...we might however soon be rid of the mqm riff raff..altaf to go on a hunger strike and their top militant leaders have gone underground...so even if the army takes over there will be a new mqm...at least...!

iran...!

iran...!
the islamic revolution is over...!

what kashmiri's can expect...!

what kashmiri's can expect...!
pakistanis dont expect much as everything in this country is looted by the army, beaurocrats and politicians including free medical treatment...a pakistani can only expect free treatments if he is injured by a terrorists blast or bullet...so the kashmiris who now have to act as mediator rather than victim and get ruled by the BJP cant expect more than the pakistanis'''

Pakistans history...on indian relations

Pakistans history...on indian relations
The 1965 war resulted after the indians reneged on an agreement on kashmir arrived at in the swaran singh-bhutto 1964 talks...some call it teh chenab solution.....others say that the USA told pakistan to occupy as much land as possible...In 1965 a conventional war was possible with pakistan considered to have an edge in teh air over indian gnats/hunters to our sabres and F-104's...however the indians took a lot of territory in sindh and punjab..as yahya khan took over the fighting in kashmir and literally stopped the momentum...pakistan ran out of ammunition in just seventeen days........pakistan occupied important kashmir territory but gave it back at tashkent leading to ayub-bhutto differences which led to teh seperation of east pakistan and initiation of constitutional rule in pakistan..tashkent,simla and later agreements led to teh sidelining of kashmir and institutionalizing indian regional hegemony with no real solutions... which has led to trade being more important than kashmir as pakistani leaders backout of forcefully supporting kashmir...many suggest that the appeasement lobby aims to trade concessions on kashmir for money eventually(joke)..!!...ie if teh PPP economy ever improves...the PPP handling of teh economy has been its worst feature many say...PPP economic measures consist of raising electricity prices every month and saying we are passing thru difficult times...

  • Jan10-2011--Dawn suggests that Latif Khosa the Benazir lawyer who has been unable to keep his job and been removed from at least three positions is headed for his fourth or fifth appointment as governor punjab in this government..earlier he was the bone of contention between the SC, Zardari and Gilani...many suggest that the SC fix lawyers representation amounts/wages as whoever goes to Latif Khosa he suggests millions as the payment he will take to represent them...is that the only type of governor that the PPP can think of...
  • Jan10-2011--Gilani and nawaz sharif agree to discuss their agenda's...many suggest that Gilani has a poor understanding of the peoples problems or development needs of teh country...meaning that his knowledge of economics might be totally zero...he might be on teh same page with altaf hussein and nawaz sharif but the peoples pages has been torn out of his memory...
  • Jan10-2011--The PPP has outlived its utility..The muslim leagues,ethnicists and martial laws have warped their brains...They donot know whether they are behaving like chinese capitalists or america's Lugar allies and they hardly know the difference between an indian and a pakistani...or whether a cricket match has been bought or sold...or did salman butt spot fix or mohammed amer
  • Jan10-2011--strange things happen when an elite force policeman kills a governor..Zardari immediately jetted of to karachi and three ministers had tobe sent to get him back...and Gilani "jo sirf amreeka ki baat manta he" on drones and taxes and price hikes(everyday hilary clinton phones and says increase sugar prices or wheat prices or electricity sales taxe or atta prices or petroleum prices or RGST only effects a few people...the most famous hilary comment has been "isnt electricity too cheap in pakistan dear gilani"...!!!..no that is in china and india responded zardari...)...but he reversed the petrol price hike...and said the mqm are my friends(enemies)(most allied of allies) and nawaz sharif's agenda is on my head and eyes...others say that a strange phone call in the middle of the night in punjabi saying "we are right behind u" prompted gilani to suggest i really have never been to 90 or refused nawaz sharif anything he wants...?...some are saying the punjab elite force is now more powerful than the army and the ISI or even amreeka...?..if i can remember teh elite force was created to control law and order...this is however the first case in which challenges to a law have been taken care in this manner...the elite force now follows around ministers and governors...earlier the police was heavy handed on the people and opposition politicians but was always helpful to those in power...ie. why it is called the elite police force...used to protect the elite...?..Such fright in the corridors of power has never been caused by the army or the taleban's suicide bombers..many are suggesting that the american army chief is flying in to plan an operation against the punjab's elite force...when the matter was referred to the pakistan army chief he responded we donot have enough firepower to control punjab's elite force...american reinforcements and modern drones are needed to rectify the problem...many suggest that the countries problems are really not going tobe solved by privatisation or restructuring(ongoing since the early eighties)...many suggest that the Nepra and Pepco chief also be provided with eilte force protection...The country has slowly been sliding downhill in all deptts eversince teh privatisation exercise started...the private sector might be able to provide KFC's and Mcdonalds burgers but are unable to solve teh countries main problems...
  • Jan 08--2011--five killed in north waziristan drone strike...
  • Jan 08--2011--PPP kickout delayed...The PPP backs down completely in sindh and the mqm continues its on-off attitude by moving onto the government benches in the center...Democratic governments/systems cannot function without real opposition as teh PPP dictatorial nature falters and stutters on....In the punjab PPP could be on the opposition benches soon as they are a failure in their quasi appeasement mode...many suggest that the PPP appoint strong governors in all provinces who can control the problems that are occurring everyday with teh PMln and mqm...American ambassador says that we try to dictate government policies..explaining teh sovreign failure of the PPP regime on drones and economics...The american policies of price and tax hikes are crushing the pakistani populace and not affecting as robert munter says a few...!!many say if american aid is needed to repair just shrines than pakistan really does not need such aid...USaid distributing lugar aid in small distributed amounts which does not solve pakistans huge problems in the development arena
  • Jan 08--2011--The PPP which thinks after rather than before stops onion exports to india via wagah as onion prices in pakistan rise
  • Jan 07--2011--after a failure to lure teh PMLn and PMLq to save his government Yusuf Raza Gilani literally on his knees reverses teh petroleum price hike and begs MQM to come back to teh coalition...Government literally trying every financial trick in teh book to create an image of a financially troubled country when that is not teh case...after failing with teh RGST teh government tried to again hike taxes thru a petroleum price hike...but fell afoul of teh JUI over Hajj corruption and teh mqm too followed suit as teh PMLn issued an ultimatum and teh PMlq was willing to support a no confidence move...what is left of teh credibility of teh Zardari-Gilani governance after the additional killing of teh punjab governor and expected/possible removal from teh punjab cabinet of the mute and duped PPP ministers is quite apparent to everyone...The punjab governor also apparently ran afoul of the pro blasphemy law federal cabinet which had earlier fired upstart sherry rehman...!!!mqm a rival for the nura kushti champions the PMLn and PMLq expected to crawl back into teh federal cabinet...
  • Jan 07--2011--Azam Swati a JUI minister who was removed from teh cabinet says Gilani and his son are the most corrupt rulers in the last 63 years as the SC heard testimony in the hajj scam as accusation of large scale corruption by teh DG hajj and others...Rehman malik also involved in hajj scam as he removes accused rao shakeel from teh ECL another gilani protege
  • Jan 06--2011--As the choices for new governor of punjab were thought about many suggested that Zardari pick a more respected figure than he has been able to think about upto now...others said that both the governors appointed by him are now dead...On the PPP side there are few with any generalized respect barring perhaps aitezaz ahsan...many suggest that teh PPP can not take a chance on losing another senate or national assembly seat and probably a provincial figure will have tobe appointed...some suggest Tanveer kaira who has been working with teh PMLn government as the possibility of the PPP ministers being dropped from teh punjab cabinet looms...PPP has to realize that a governor cannot win them much support in the punjab...The PMLq did a quick about turn as many started to suggest that they might be behind another political murder and were now willing to support a no confidence move if moved by teh PMLn who dont want anything todo with the federal government...many suggested that Taseer had been eliminated by teh government itself for some internecine reason like corruption or terrorism or might be be he was being considered to replace yusuf raza gilani or even that the mqm had paid for the murder to take revenge from teh PPP for something...others suggest that smaller religious organizations than the taleban might also be more willing to use murder as a political tool as sunni political power is seen on the wane...The interior minister also supported the murderer in a way by saying that he too would kill anybody vilifying the prophet...and that no change is being made to the blasphemy law...a small victory perhaps for malik mumtaz qadri...!!
  • Jan 06--2011--The PPP workers found it difficult to bring people onto the street to protest teh Taseer murder even though lahore was deserted on his burial...most political and government leaders stayed away from the funeral due to teh controversial circumstances not wanting tobe targeted by their own security or suggest support for an unpopular cause...many suggest that security clearances were not available as teh government initiated a quick recheck of their police security personnel......a country which has seen nothing but murder, mayhem, price hikes and utility shortages for the last few years is almost unable to be even sad at another death..people find it difficult to understand the PPP attempt to politicise the murder...when it took place in almost teh calmest corner of pakistan where even diplomats are not frightened to walk around...and to show the countries polarisation lawyers greeted the arrival of the murderer in court and showered petals as some groups justified the murderers reasoning...while taseers son said that he had earlier had his own father killed...while still others said that another of benazirs killers had bit the dust and that all the numerous companies that taseer ran as teh PPP made life difficult for the people were on the verge of bankruptcy...many said that he was a front man for investing the money of corrupt politicians in punjab...Taseer who had joined teh musharaf-pmlq before benazirs death was seen by many as a controversial choice..industrialists, bussinessmen,waderas,generals have little love for the people anymore and teh country literally cant mourn anymore...
  • Jan 05--2011--while nawaz sharif wants removal of corrupt ministers many say the federal government is a burden on this country with its wasteful spending spree's unchecked by parliament... six or seven ministries are all that are required while health and education should be shifted to provinces totally...many say inter provincial coordination, law, interior,defence,communication, finance,water and power and petroleum are the only ministers that should remain with state ministers for education, health, information,transportation...
  • Jan 05--2011--Sindh raises chilli prices at kunri to Rs275 a kilo from nearly 190 a kilo...
  • Jan 05--2011--After the failure of taseer as governor many suggest that the PPP appoint a more congenial soul who can get along with everybody...kaira, badr considered better than the abrasive baber awan
  • Jan 05--2011--food convoy torched and looted in parachinar..school bus bombed in turbat
  • Jan 05--2011--nawaz sharif gives three day ultimatum to the government to agree to implement his agenda or get out of the punjab government...while an independent accountability commission would be a new thing since even teh courts are not independent one should see the history of the whole issue to see its uselessness unless the people involved in corruption at any level are removed from power...most other issues have already outlived their need and nawaz sharif should methinks change his agenda to at least include some benefits to teh populace...
  • Jan 05--2011--Governor punjab salman taseer killed in a shooting in islamabad...governor involved in various controversies with the PMln and recently the blasphemy imbroglio...said to have a wife and son in amritsar..a conservative bussinessman and supposedly liberal politician linked to the PPP, PMLq and imran kahan with supposed arab sources of funding...recently he disappeared for days without information...apparently shot dead by accompanying elite force policeman for tauheen i risalat near kohsar market..a member of benazirs economic taskforce he gave her the controversial advice that privatisation would end teh countries foreign debt..it actually tripled...later he quit the PPP over differences and was made punjab governor when he went to see zardari to condole benazirs death...zardari apparently thought he was a great bussinessman ..a controversial person he apparently bought teh Pace deptt store from imran khan and set up teh pace hotels and apartments group...he is probably more famous for running an english newspaper and a television channel..!!!He was the only governor appointed by Zardari who has been unable to appoint his governors in the other three provinces..PPP attempts to create a hoopla around the murder despite no mystery and many suggest that the PPP did it to get out of a political quagmire...many see it as a resultant of the gilani-shujaat meeting and say taseer had to pay a high price for a Rs450 rupee cup of coffee...!!
  • Jan 04--2011--Mqm mulls moving into the opposition in sindh which has no opposition at present...
  • Jan 04--2011--Army says it is converting the sui cantonment into a military college
  • Jan 04--2011--mqm's nazimabad sector incharge shot dead in karachi...mqm which has been literally absolved of everything by the PPP regime and has distanced itself from the PPP after being accused of protecting and running killers now wants an investigation of this killing..in an earlier attack an ANP official was shot dead while later a sindhi truck driver was shot dead
  • Jan 04--2011--electricity losses in punjab lowest at 14.1% while they are 37.6% in Sindh and 35.3% in KP...balochistan at 18%
  • Jan 04--2011--gilani desperately seeking PMLn and PMLq support as they try to blackmail MQM into returning to teh Zardari fold...PMLn and PMLq not willing to form a coalition to topple PPP...Nawaz sharif gives an ultimatum that his agenda too should be implemented or the PPP will be forced out of the punjab government...Gilani obviously unaware of the limits of his governing coalition...zardari refuses to become an impartial president...PPP's harsh unnecessary economics will have tobe dismantled substantially for any reasonable coalition to be stable...The PPP's inability to initiate proceedings against Benazirs killers as well as any reasonable effort to investigate teh Bugti killings has shown them tobe only in power for the prestige of governance...They have developed a harsh anti people image favorable only to the rich agricultural/industrial lobby with unexplained favors to state sector workers /army...
  • Jan 04--2011--The analysis of the PPP rule upto now shows their immaturity and taking their coalition for granted...Gilani many think is good at politiking but a bad primeminister unable to control anything...it is only the opposition fright of the army chief and forming a coalition between conflicting parties that keeps him in power and the strange PMLn logic of forcing PPP to rule for five years... The PPP think that the people will be satisfied with mere politics while they crush their living standards by price hikes, taxes, non development, gas and electricity shortages, making basic foodstuffs unavailable by cost enhancements... and a total following of teh IMF attitude/ethic with a donor related/imported finance minister...The mqm on the other hand like teh other PPP coalition partners has been a complete failure in government as in the past and been unable to support any people measures prefering teh altaf hussein threats(which a mohajirish terrorized zardari succumbs to as if out of fright and as a form of coalition threatening politics to get the mohajir ethnic agenda thru which is not anything that the people support or want...Their attitude of being unable to present views in the cabinet or to the finance minister suggests that they have an opposition mentality and are unable to participate in policy formation to any popular level...The ANP with only 13 seats has however has had most of its agenda implemented despite its unpopularity...The PPP mandate with only 127 seats out of 342 seems akin to dictatorship and they have at best outlived their utility...upto now no realistic solution to any of teh countries problems has emerged and their constitution gimmikry is regarded as a favor to themselves rather than any promotion of democratic values...gilanis latest suggestion that the people are only good for votes and they have todo nothing in return and they are only subjugate to a parliament which is at best a rubber stamp affair with the nura kushti champion nawaz sharif and a mute PPP camp...is a measure of their democratic attitudes...
  • Jan 03--2011--Gilani immediately changed his tune to nawaz sharif, nawaz sharif while yesterday he was saying that the mqm does not oppose me as the mqm moved onto the opposition benches in the national assembly...probably trying to force teh PPP to accept his diktat altaf hussein in a major change of heart pushed teh PPP into a minority status at teh center...legally asif zardari should ask the primeminister to take a vote of confidence which only nawaz sharif and the PMLq can save the PMLn protege yusuf raza gilani who many say has turned against teh ideals of teh PPP and has adopted a consistent anti people policy..PMLq,Mqm and JUI-f could possibly form a block of votes creating three big blocks in the assembly while opening the possibility of nawaz sharif joining the government if PMLn is given the primeministership..earlier attempts by teh PMLn to form a government were rejected by teh mqm...The only possibility for a PPP government surviving is teh acceptance of a joint primeministership candidate with PMLn...elections could be round teh corner if coalition attempts fail...nawaz sharif given his reluctance tobe part of a government could allow the PPP to rule on in a minority status if his views on major issues are implemented...
  • Jan 02--2011--another four gilani approved drone strikes in north waziristan kill 19
  • Jan 02--2011--Yusuf Raza Gilani seems tobe heading towards an election defeat as he announces the Gilani doctrine of "mein kuch nahin kar sakta..." drops his sunni religious coalition on the blasphemy issue and announces his drone philosophy of 'drone attacks will stop on their own',army/airforce only to fight rioters, terrorists and militants, mqm bhi ghud theek ho jaigi..terrorism aur sectarianism aur ethnicism bhi ghud khatam ho jaingi.....high taxes and price hikes needed to build high security walls around my and zardaris houses in multan and naudero and the CJCOSC offices and islamabad mariott...mehngai ka bhi kuch nahin kar sakta,indians bhi ghud hi kashmir ka solution denge...unemployment meri zimadari nahin,18/19 amendment ka pata nahin kiya faida hoga..party ke logon ke kehne pe appointments karta hun...jab job khali hoti he to jehangir badr or zardari or qaim ali shah aur multan phone karta hun ke kis ko lagaon..koi PPP wala jobless na mile to amir hoti ka banda laga deta hun......awam jain bhar men... men sirf parliament ka ghulam hun...
  • Jan 01--2011--The PPP literally succumbs like a whipped pup with its tail between its legs to mqm's troublemaking attitude/viles again and allows them back in to teh coalition as well as accepting their dictation on all sindhi issues such as withdrawal of LG legislation and reinstallation of commissioners...Zardari apparently ordered the sindh home minister to forget about their killers and save my government...?

the earthquake

the earthquake
the earthquake jolts in punjab were severe but the damge was mostly in the KP hilly areas...a water tank was shifted from its moorings in peshawar but did not fall...

the monument

the monument
The army as everyone knows has more money to spend and is quick to serve its own interests...the APS monument in Rawalpindi's Ayub Park is incongruous and does not seem to serve the remembrance of one of the worst terrorist incidents in the countries history

the army image..

the army image..
the armies image...songs, drama's and films by teh ISPR... remembering December 16, 1971 and the current sindhi viewpoint of the Rangers... who have been a cause of the decline in politically motivated disturbances in karachi which the provincial government had been unable to handle for over a decade...

do u need this

do u need this
do u need this...the iSI and ISPR wont back down...!the campaign folders...u cannot move on and hang onto the old brass...!

the contest is not so straight

the contest is not so straight
the contest between the military and the terrorists is not so straight...both like different aspects...the army likes the martyr effect...trying to buildup a courageous image of the at best innocent victims while the terrorist likes the immediate effect the terror, fright and destruction...obviously in the end one side has to win and the phsycological warfare reaches its climax with the action and later reactions...

nawaz sharif's inability

nawaz sharif's inability
what pakistan has inits future...in two years loadshedding has not changed an iota...so what is in the works that will end load shedding...coal power plants and nuclear plants have not even gotten off the ground...cheap petroleum products has not solved it...even if neelum jhelum is completed will it make a difference...hardly ...!

electricity where art thou...!
electricity...electricity...where art thou...upto the PPP era there was usually no loadshedding when the dams were full...now in the Nawaz Sharif era the dams are full, petroleum prices are down but still load shedding continues...what utter system failure...

military corruption

military corruption
the yellow sportscar of military corruption...dont mistake the car for a military boot......while military corruption at the grassroots maybe impossible to visualize the top controlled army has revealed a list of senior generals involved in corruption...two karachi and lahore corp commanders and two former baloch FC chiefs...the yellow sportscar is a symbol how the army has misconstrued corruption, honesty and bravado mixed with dictatorial super powers of senior officers who are rarely challenged..many joke that if the yellow sportscar had been delivered to its rightful owner the army chief than who would ever have been able to question an FC chief...!how the military extorts or usurps land for its purposes is nade clear by the shenanigans of hammad arshad and two kayani brigadiers...

terrorists or dakoos

terrorists or dakoos
army and SSG called in to fight the chotoo terrorist gang...!!!after scouring punjab looking for the herds of terrorists the police and army finally find a desertified island in rajanpur where the chotoo gang has them terrified...while telling the french that they want to modernize JF-17's for a terror fight...for which an attack helicopter is supposedly more than enough...!

a new coas

a new coas
with raheel shareef breathing down his neck will there be a new coas...!or will raheel shareef be able to frighten nawaz sharif into retaining him...the frontrunner is regarded as Lt.Gen Ramday number three in the picture...but the other three are equally competent with the no nonsense Lt Gen Ishfaq Nadeem equally considered ...but many say his brusque bluntness may have frightened Nawaz Sharif...the other two Hayat and Bajwa are also just as trustworthy...with hayat having almost two serving Lt.General siblings and a father who was a major general...uptill now it was Nawaz Sharif's decision but now many think Raheel Shareef might want to keep the job...!

lansdgrabbing and bombing fata and foreign trips

lansdgrabbing and bombing fata and foreign trips
some of the favorite pastimes of the army chief seen tobe grabbing land of the poor in karachi and lahore...bombing runs on Fata...and foreign trips...regular once, twice or thrice a month...!some say he also spends ISI funds on himself and even goes to personally buy Semtex...!!

duplicity of the pMLn

duplicity of the pMLn

katchi abadi's

katchi abadi's
ialamabad has a particular affinity to katchi abadi's especially for christians, pukhtuns and afghans...The one in I-11 has almost 854 families and 8000 imigres...afghans, christian women,dillapidated punjabi's u name it...The CDA wants to clear them out...sending them back home is difficult and buldozers dont work in the face of mass opposition...?

iftikhar chaudhry

iftikhar chaudhry
the government must have withdrawn his bomb proof vehicle...as he now wants to enter politics...the country has already suffered under his judicial rule...the arsalan extortion would probably quadruple to the zardari levels...!

lahore flooding

lahore flooding
floods in many lahore areas are a new phenomenon resulting from teh haphazard shahbaz sharif development policies

the metro

the metro
the rains and the metro...roofs and bridges leaking all over the place...

weather weather

weather weather
the dawn image shows the variation of hot weather all over teh country...while it would be difficult to control electricity supply based on the weather the variation between hot and cold is astounding...

pakistan...

pakistan...
tears have tobe mended...accept diversity and learn that religion can not teach u anything...if u allow everything... all religions and all sects than there will always be conflict because humans will always find a way to increase conflict one way or the other...to control sects have tobe eliminated...india is not a secular state it is a hindu country and conflicts between the hindu and other religions are numerous...even the primeminister fights muslims and other religions...the control there is just the terrorizing nature and overwhelming numerous hindus...pakistan cannot create something new everyday...one system must be created and followed ..the quaid only said that everyone is free to go to their religious places but he did not mention sects and did not say that religions were free to taunt each other and run rampant unbridled in whatever direction...religions must be restricted to mosques, temples and the home...the streets must be free for everybody...!!!

inaugurating the rawalpindi metro...the ticket collector, the karyana merchant and the drugs(ecstacy )smuggler

how to protest

how to protest
the police and teh lawyers who are supposed to maintain law and order dont know how to protest and what the level of violence should be or is it even necessary...everybody dies but when they are killed by police they go crazy

cricket security

cricket security
the last cricket match that i went to they would not allow my camera or sandwiches...so things have only changed in some ways...the zimbabweans had better remember not to sit on the kerb side of the bus...the terrorists here have no rhyme or reason for their attacks...although they usually donot repeat an attack...!

power crisis

power crisis
is he chasing power the actual sort if shahbaz sharif faulters in the PAT riots case...! coal will only come online in three-four years and the country will need at least 10000MW for any real change to occur...Khawaja Asif has ridden the storm hiding behind his minister of state...not even able to replace the stealing Pesco chief he has blamed the extremely hot weather for the problems this year in the power sector...rains do help but to an extent...

the situations

the situations
the government attempting another north waziristan cleanup...asfandyar wali wants a straight line corridor...really it will not make any difference if it is connected to Ratodero or multan since a sindh to hasanabdal corridor already exists...the brave Rangers arrest a kid in karachi....zulfikar mirza forgets his sindhi cap...and information minister called a non muslim for calling seminaries a centers of illiteracy...

tooti bhajji hakumat

tooti bhajji hakumat
The PMLn in punjab can at best be described as a tooti bhajji hakumat especially in the context of the rawalpindi metro which does not seem nearing completion...in between the nawaz sharif turkish company started a garbage collection system...they placed wheeled garbage bins all over the place... however the quality of the bins probably the workmanship of the ittefaq foundry was so bad that the bins disappeared overnight while those left behind had broken wheels and dents and were usually lying around on their sides...

the daily war on terror

the daily war on terror
the 2014 year of terror...the politicians never ending trailer war...the system in pakistan is just terror prone...a new army chief justice has taken over...he will hold military trials inside military garrisons...elsewhere the double barrelled shotgun rules ...the gun of choice for security guards...barbed wires and bomb protection for schools...the daily police and ranger raids and FC shootouts...military bombings in fata and the bomb blasts and shootouts...and the winner...army trials and hangings...god save all pakistani's...

anti democracy

anti democracy
anti sunnis lineed up against teh sunnis...in an anti democracy dictatorship opposition and allies change daily...

The PMLn control withers...

The PMLn control withers...
Al Capone...By all accounts the PMLn has conceded defeat in lahore and one can only imagine what will happen on the 18th... with a government that wont implement even minimum law and order measures against a politician(?) gone haywire in his quest for power...if the country is shutdown on the 18th than can Nawaz Sharif survive in power...?

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?
rejected as a revolutionary because he repeated the stuff others had already tried...this country has already seen crazies and coupplotters who wanted to set things right but who eventually returned to the status quo ..the country has seen reforms, constitutions, martial laws, provisional constitutions,revolutions, harsh crackdowns of various shapes but still was left with the same set of crooked politicians...tobe a revolutionary u really cannot be a mullah and have the establishment's candidate tagging along...u have tobe unchallenged and be able to subdue everyone into silence...u have also need of new ideas, methods and obviously a way to topple a government and dominate the army and beaurocracy as well as teh populace...just beating up the already subdued/subjugated police does not look very revolutionary anymore and shouting speeches are really old hat...nobody was frightened and the army said we have already done all that several times already...!...back to canada it is for the failed revolutionary...

the estranged privaticos

the estranged privaticos
Nawaz sharifs privatisation commission which the photo shows are worried and holding divergent views about the strange privatisations including that of OGDCL shares...a company with over a billion dollars in profits they call offloading...youth loans which seem inherently unpopular can now be gauranteed by a grade 15 government employee...gaurantors dont want the FIA running after them as the youth will in all probability be unable to return the amounts in todays climate...apparently the judges can still pull the rug from under Nawaz Sharifs feet...

military despots

military despots
a Newsline cover in early september depicting the hopeful occupiers of constitution avenue... the two supposed military despots who would hang and jail most politicians left, right and center with corruption trials and confiscations of property,pajeros and palaces...it was not to be as their military sponsors backed out...they would have made the old tinpot dictators look like timid men...!!!

croissants...

croissants...
the dharna they say has given Nawaz Sharif such a headache that he has shifted from nihari-paye to an eggs and croissant breakfast...how will a lahorya be able to tolerate that...however eid has ruined some aspects of the dharna's with some empty tents and Imran khan also looking for qurbani skins..his Shaukat khanum ad says" qurbani for allah but skins for SKMT"...the skins are pretty expensive and used to make even more expensive jackets and shoes although the mqm and the edhi foundation also get skins from their workers and liberals who avoid religious based charities who usually take the most...

beneficial tobe in government

beneficial tobe in government
it is still beneficial tobe in government...shah mahmood qureshi has ten illegal electricity connections in one house in multan...nawaz sharif in one go has gotten rid of twenty year old references...dawn sees the dharnas as an unguided missile they dont know where they are going and change direction everyday...and Go Nawaz Go is plastered on islmabad traffic and lane signs...it has also been heard in national assembly committee and several government functions in lahore...Imran Khn apparently thinks that the containerstop(dharna) is just the last stop before they jump into government...!

the situation..

the situation..
blasts, metro and a huge PTI rally in lahore...Imran Khan goes for rallies but does not want to end the dharna which has outlived its utility...Nawaz Sharif seen as defensive behind the barriers says he is still working while others see his government as unable to handle things...Bomb blasts have resumed while karachis burn and kill politics continues despite an year long operation in which the Rangers say they targeted everyone...the most effected were religious groups, criminals and the lyari groups...mqm says its 45 were killed but they still have their firepower intact say others...so the situation is now almost similar to PPP rule...a government seen as ineffective, bomb blasts and a resurgent PTI threatening to have the primeminister removed thru the SC...does the primeminister have enough immunity...things could turn out differently with the 2013 elections being hounded into the ground...Dawn suggests that a south punjab diversion thru parliaments could be the way out...but it is difficult for the punjab when everyone rejects a mohajir sooba and a hazara sooba...

all but over...

all but over...
its all but over...even if an election is held in three or six months the huge support of PMLn not expected to shift to PTI-qadri...their meanness is too dangerous for their elite...the dhandli was but a ruse...with the floods and mean and nasty natures of imran khan and tahir ul qadri containergate is all but over...it is just left for them to decide when to paddle back to lahore...the floods were devastating but while the nasty containers wiped the smiles off the faces of the lohars of jati umra they were satisfied to a certain extent that they could not fool the SC and the corp commanders...it is just a hyde park for imran khan he can make as many speeches he likes and when his throat starts to wither he can head home like javed hashmi...

half in half out

half in half out
half in half out...there is really nothing to smile about...while qadri who here looks like Modi here has got what he wants Imran Khan lacking political sense does not know what todo...everyone else says go home we will manage it...imran khan only knows how to play tough cop and is unaware that u sometimes have to throw matches just to achieve an end...both seem to have behind the scenes conspirators who are not worried by what they do or achieve or the trouble and damage they do to themselves and the country

the mediator

the mediator
The National Assembly which has failed to represent the people under attack by two clonelike formations with no interest inits survival...further damage has been done by bringing in the army chief as a final mediator...a coup in but name...!..earlier reports that the army might be behind the street demos...earlier even Qadri was making claims that he was here to defend Nawaz Sharif otherwise there would be a coup...PMLn had made attempts earlier to draw in the army chief...however the utter failure to reach a decision has increased the army chiefs strength...it is yet tobe seen what leverage he has on the two attackers...

degs and sidekicks

degs and sidekicks
degs,sidekicks, sideattractions,mediators, cricket analogies, power arbitrators and a dumb umpire...is nawaz sharif waiting for the sucker punch...!venturing into the punjab...the PPP's cautious two... Zardari flew in from Dubai while aitezaz ahsan from europe where they were waiting for the coup...!! they must think the taleban are now done for ...?

situation changes

situation changes
the dawn says that the attacks on fata could be politically timed to the situation...others say that while zarb arb might have reached a conclusion the americans and Nato keep ordering more attacks...planes have bombed and troops have attacked the taleban...now troops patrol the constitution avenue...will the army one day bomb and open fire on unruly politicos to save a government...Imran Khan might soon test that theory...the dawns depiction of civil obedience seems unrealistic but the situation might have reached that stage with utility bills going out of range and prices skyrocketing...malala seems so unrealistic in this scenario... she was the heroine of the taleban era...the PMLn keeps trying to suggest that the country is faced by many dangers while the imran-qadri duo suggest that it is the sharifs who are more dangerous...!the solution suggested by finance minister crazy qadri...more taxes...!

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

attrition, pressurization...denoument...
continuous attrition...while one does not know what are the objectives of the Azadi march apart from a major demo or a semi violent or even peaceful few weeks in Azadi square...obviously if Nawaz Sharif crumble' s and announces a mid term election after just one year it would be a bonanza for the PTI who expect a better showing although one has not noticed any new election management techniques apart from the raking in of a few small groups...if they could draw in the PPP they could do much better in the big province ...!

the rabble rousers

the rabble rousers
PAT rabble rousers who fought thepolice to a gory end as they refused to allow barricades tobe removed...

shallow

shallow
teh shallow nature of Nawaz Sharifs policies seems very apparent when u look at how his taleban containment policy has worked out and his some say idiotic policy on india and obviously many donot think he has any policy on sectarianism...most governments tilt towards teh shiites who are regarded as serious sunni killing machines too...teh taleban were supposedly his friends who troubled his opponents into smithereens... and his disliked budget and his policies that seem just ordinary at times...his dragging along of nargis sethi when she should be retired...is another case in point...!and his interior minister was fast asleep at home as the karachi terror attack took place and NS could not find him because he was asleep too...!

an apt description

an apt description
an apt description for the PMLn attitude...! as an afterthought even after the budget had been presented teh PMLn regime which is attempting to impose sales tax on shoes, clothes,medicines etc.they announced a one billion handout or a pilot program for the pooorest poor 's health insurance...unlike Obama they did not ask teh poor to pay for that too...

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing
altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing,...as altaf's arrest in london was announced for corruption he was sent to hospital for ordinary blood checks which can be conducted in a few minutes..rumours of a blocked artery stalled the british police...ever since he formed the mqm with a group of others who he has had killed he has blackmailed the pakistani governments continuously on the base of support of a majority ethnic group of karachiites...all governments benazir, ziaulhaq, nawaz sharif, musharaf, PPP, PMLn, ANP did his bidding but he always ended up trying to seperate karachi as a province or state...the "mein na manoon" ran as the operations started in karachi and decimated his 3000 man army...for twenty years he kept up the rigmarole of killing opponents, bhatta and blackmailing one government after the other...he now has the support of another east punjabi mohajir nawaz sharif who quickly issued him a passport and nicop...the british hid him from sight in a hospital on the ruses of an illness...having gotten fat over the last twenty years life in calm britain does not suit him...but the british many say want the killers of imran farook and than he might make another attempt at life in pakistan...otherwise british jails are a very comfortable place too...the mqm has karachi in a dither and everyone looking on to see how they get out of this situation...!!!

the empty grave

the empty grave
democracy is an organized process and one cannot as they say run wild like the PAT and PTI...The PMLn also unable to control them...In the PPP era the same container mullah was used to threaten to create an mqm type terrorist politico but whoever controlled the strings pulled out...now in a different government with the pathetic duo of sharifs unable to handle the agitation cum protest and are in fact trying to buildup two demagogues or demonizers...unless the sharifs step into the qadri grave the status quo cannot change...The people are not worried about a change in power but the armed forces can be frightened of the inability to handle as well as the prospects of two demons who wont accept normal control mechanisms...that frightens the army more than a rough and tumble few weeks...with qadri attempting to suggest that he can form and run a dunda army in the punjab and imran khan showing off his tremendous support things cannot change too much unless the sharifs cut and run...nawaz sharif trying to placate both amid the vulnerability of unpopular rule which is more dangerous...qadri and imran khan can see the weakness...the only option for the sharifs is also to use their popular support which could be difficult to galvanize in times of trouble but good for a vote...creating an mqm type terror outfit which could with imran khan make substantial changes in an election scenario..but the elections are too far and how much support will nawaz sharif lose by that time...he can easily frighten a lot of people to vote for him again...the race between the azadi and inqilabi marches is nearing an end but it could develop into a lower economic front backlash for the sharifs...eventually shahbaz sharif will have to go as he has turned into a toothless tiger batted around by the violence prone PAT/MWM/PTI...!!!

french revolutionaries

french revolutionaries
the french revolutionaries...finger waving fiery oratory and almost trapeze artists as they swing from one position to the other...both nearing their ultimatum ends and imran khan says he will walk down the constitution avenue hoping police donot fire at him...there can still be tear gas and rioting...below the kings balloon fillers who alongwith abid sher ali have become the biggest failures...

the azadi march

the azadi march
imran khan the hardened pukhtun warrior literally lunges into nawaz sharif's pleasure trip or final trip as primeminister...probably fedup sitting in opposition wants the sharifs to go home for good now...!while a handshake with the PMLn tigers tail might look odd at this time...while the PMLn finds a huge 200 feet pole for the flag raising...!independence or azadi is meant to celebrate rather than protest...azadi does not really mean that u can do anything ...!

change

change
the winds of change ..usually means a fresh pro people change in government...with ishaq dar killing any love for the government with high electricity bills...imran khan looking for a change most likely in the top position of punjab...khawaja saad rafik seems tobe ogling the chief ministry with a demonstration of his ability to handle and explain things...would that be enough for imran khan...many suggest kicking the dubious judiciary out of the electoral process...

emerging from teh underground

emerging from teh underground
emerging from the underground/hiding and resurfacing in the USA...The Zardari's after nawaz sharif started facing problems with qadri's and imran khan's...we ar'nt frightened of a four seat recount they say...!...there wont be any suicide bombers in washington...son..!!!

the fake revolutionary

the fake revolutionary
the fake revolutionary and the failed revolution...in the sixties the communists always wanted a body to create political nuisance value by running withit thru the streets...it never really worked here...now the fake revolutionary a topi wearing firebrand television evangelist living in canada created an event where he rioted and fired at the police causing the death of his men and nearly succeeded they say but for the dumb....than he said a revolution was near...today...tommorrow...whenever it is announced...!a truckdriver can be a revolutionary but a canadian mullah mouthing socialistic pipedreams of jobs for the people...nobody believes that ...neither the army or the people...!!!however the people who rioted for him seemed trained to riot and probably many said were ISI workers or even the work of hamza shahbaz sharif...!a revolutionary industrialist...!!nah...

just Rs.600

just Rs.600
while just Rs.600 to 350000 poor families of KP per month might not be much but still the PTI uses it to demonstrate its charitability...many feel that the tribals what with their smuggling, dacoities and bhatta were already quite well off...

How it all started...coups and politics and islam and democracy...

from a dawn blog

from a dawn blog
pictures from a dawn blog...These pictures depict what has happened to pakistan...charing cross, lahore in teh 1930's...punjab huge and powerful has been crushed by teh PPP thru electricity shutdowns and stoppage of power projects but still they plan to divide it into three so sindh can seem tobe part of pakistan even inits meanness...teh ethnic/terror/sectarian wars in gilhgit-kohistan, karachi, Fata and balochistan mirror east pakistans uprising but the solution is still the same... crush them...the liberalism of teh PIA advert in the sixties and seventies shows how conservative we have become...the quaids mazaar under construction on a mound in karachi's sixties...would'nt it have looked better that way...looks so different now...in east pakistan the army still so considerate...openup...and teh most effect that something has had on pakistan teh india afghan border in teh 1930's...

debacle in Dacca

debacle in Dacca
total humiliation...India had steadily destabilized east pakistan over twenty years playing on ethnic, financial, development and military concerns...pakistan was not that rich at that time and the ethnicists played on phsychosis generated by cyclones, floods, tea and jute...the army and west pakistani politicians could not accept a bengali dominated government and a small army contingent could not defend against the mukti bahini and the indians as teh US withdrew its support as usual...When teh going gets tough teh US chickens out as usual...!! The indians have continued teh same themes in karachi, sindh and balochistan but similar tougher responses have not allowed their success although pakistan is now at best a divided land with a pathetic center...!!While it left pakistan numb at the time many now feel the seperation was a proper solution as east pakistanis did not get along with pakistan and they would be better able to solve their problems with india...others still pine away for the lost land of rivers, tea and jute...others suggest that india should handover kashmir in exchange...while some still want to repatriate those considered pakistanis and left stranded in bangladeshi camps...others however heave a sigh of relief as teh problems with the remaining provinces are generally insoluble.....and ethnic regionalism or provincialism mixed with economic and racial nonsense is not a pleasant mode of politics anyway...

the chabri wala

the chabri wala
the failed industrialist dawn suggests is actually doubling as a rehriwala attempting to sell rotten fruit to unknowing foreigners...since he has no real expertise to run even a factory many say...while foreigners have only bought straight commercial successes such as PTCL, UBL, kot addu, KESC, one does not see any real bilionaire type landing in pakistan to purchase its smallware...ie. troublesome distribution companies and successful but gas less SNGPL and SSGPL...etc...teh reasonings for privatisation to foreign companies or even foreign sounding companies is that teh people will not complain if some gora raises electricity prices or cuts off their connections...while terrorists remain tobe subdued they have not troubled any industrialist usually hitting on small time bussinesses...
