muzzling the courts...!

muzzling the courts...!
The sharifs crush the people into the money in their bank accounts...sugar and politics... The LHC escapes the punjab government strangulation and orders the sharifs that they cannot relocate three sugar mills to the south of punjab...they too accuse the sharifs of lying and refusing to obey court orders and attempting to muzzle the courts...!!!

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases
Asif zardari has gotten off for time spent in jail...while others say for getting his wife killed...!

the chakri crook

the chakri crook
the chakri crook...asif zardari looks and behaves like a corrupt politician...! who many think destroyed the Bhutto's especially Benazir Bhutto...has been acquitted in some very high profile corruption references such as the almost undeniable SGS-Cotechna case and illegal assets abroad...!when Benazir Bhutto was asked about the surrey mansion she said zardari probably bought it for his new IB girlfriend...!

gaye bhans politics

gaye bhans politics
punjab does not have much loyalty for a fallen politician according to the past...however Bilawal might still be left with just the tail...!

end of nawaz sharif

end of nawaz sharif
the new primeminister...says he has no new assets since 1980...reportedly owns Airblue...a red wire crosses out nawaz sharif as his photo lies crumpled on the dias...!

political cricket

political cricket
political cricket...imran khan himself maybe in trouble soon however at teh moment the travails of the sharifs seem to have no end

banigala

banigala
than and now---there were really no trees in banigala...on teh outskirts of rawalpindi and islamabad it was an agricultural area...now however they maybe polluting rawal dam where dead fish have been found this year...

banigala house

banigala house
imrans huge banigala place has many jealous objectors to its hugeness...said tobe 30 canals it still doe snot match the raiwind palace of the sharifs

The SC and article 62...

The SC and article 62...
it might look like a dented judgement to the sharifs but it has a lot of volume and bases...article 62 and 63 were supposedly just for show...however the Panama scandal threw up so much information that the judges found it difficult to avoid blaming the sharifs for corruption, kickbacks, lies and subterfuge...the sharifs could not prove their own cases...there was 120 million each sent to the sharif brothers...the animals gifted to qatari rulers...the sharifs dithered on who owned the panama companies...than there were the Capital FZE lies...the application said he received a 10000 dirhams salary and was chairman but sharif even refused to accept that saying it was subterfuge and Hussein owned the company...he lied to get a residence permit...there were reports of Dirhams 600000 transferred from dubai to london...it was just too much for the judges to accept...and out went the sharifs barring the shahbaz sharifs...!

political dementia

political dementia
Political dementia...everyone in the sharif family has different views about the Avenfield apartments..Nawaz Sharifs wife says they bought them for their childrens education...Hussein Nawaz says they were given to them by the Qataris alongwith loans...Nawaz Sharif says he does not know but they rented them in the 1990's...Maryam says actually she is just a trustee and hussein owns the flats...they also suggest that the fifth flat was sold to pay for shabaz and nawaz sharifs expenses...! shifty capt.Safdar says he does not know whether he signed the trustee document or someone else did...however at best the beneficial owner is supposedly Maryam Nawaz aka Maryam Safdar...!!!...army chief wants trucks for CPEC and mullah fazlurrehman says it is propaganda against CPEC...?while javed hashmi wants to know when there will be accountability of generals...!

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...!

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

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...

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

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 has 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...

The Daily PakistanPolitics 14-31 Dec, 2012


  • Dec26-2012--punjab governor asks shabaz sharif to start consultations on teh new provincial interim setup...it is not known whether teh governor will act as teh opposition leader or raja riaz...?
  • Dec26-2012--dawn says there are 1 million unverified voters in four punjab areas as compared to 3 million in karachi
  • Dec26-2012--Asfadyar Wali who has opposed creating a political provincial setup in fata calls for allowing the ANP to handle teh violence, military operations and negotiations in Fata on the pattern of teh malakand qazi courts...earlier negotiations between teh ANP and teh taleban failed...two militants killed in khyber...while teh Ji calls for a taleban office in teh country
  • Dec26-2012--In karachi the sectarian ethnic war took a serious turn as an AWSJ leader was shot and injured killing four policemen, a security guard and driver...sparking violence across karachi...16 more people were shot in different incidents
  • Dec26-2012--In a change of policy the army announced a military operation in the mashkey division in balochistan after two FC soldiers were killed...several armed men and an FC soldier killed in operation while two BLF camps destroyed
  • Dec26-2012--Dawn says that Farook H Naek has graduated from family lawyer to being teh brains of teh PPP and will handle the setting up of teh interim government after raja ashraf refused to accept Chaudhry Nisar's choices...The PPP which has had opposing attitudes in sindh and punjab has now graduated to some sort of accomodation in punjab with the appointment of a more acceptable governor...In sindh they have literally allowed teh mqm to walk all over them...raja ashraf has shown a much better sense than gilani upto now...he settled teh row over teh swiss cases and the CEC's appointment and allowed teh Zardari family to attempt a more haloed powerful and prominent look especially in sindh...he also sort of supports the PPP's divide and rule divisive policy of altaf in karachi.. zardari's in sindh... gilanis in south punjab and the ashrafs and kaira's in north punjab ...while teh two lawyer-ex judges suggested by Chaudhry nisar after top balochi leaders refused with one being a solid independent judge while teh other was a more pro government judge who headed the abbottabad commission whose report has not been released probably due to government and army objections...Dawn suggests that a tougher more political leader is needed who can resist calls for army rule by a canadian mullah recently...earlier there were reports that raza rabbani could be a consensus choice but those reports did not last long given top level PPP objections...Zardari supports politicians like mahmood ahmed teh new punjab governor with links to the sindhi pir pagara who are willing to change sides as well as work with both sides and are family politicians with past connections and area power...raja ashraf too was born in sanghar...!in the past politicians willing to retire have been selected...
  • Dec25-2012--22 children die of measles in rural sindh areas
  • Dec25-2012--ten killed across karachi in what is described as a sectarian , criminal and ethnic war...
  • Dec25-2012--the mqm wont let go of the bone...they file review against delimitation decision even after it has become law...while teh argument that delimitation in one city alone is discriminatory can be sustained the mqm has to realize that teh census is now unnecessary as Nadra data and the housing census is generally sufficient...however delimitation is carried out so that people have relatively equal representation in teh ethnic and numeric sense...teh mqm has failed to represent all teh constituents of karachi and many feel some intervention is necessary due to the mqm's violent ethnic militancy and isolation from much of teh populace...
  • Dec25-2012--Amir Haider Hoti who supposedly handles the anti terrorism of teh FC and police now wants a more sustained military campaign to douse the suicide bombers...as the senior minister bashir bilour told teh taleban we are pukhtuns and u are pukhtuns...bold and fearless...no tears for teh dead and buried...hardly worth critisizing islamabad's timid beaurocrats for...major attitude change needed...
  • Dec25-2012--after the private sector fiascos in sugar, CNG, banking, atta, electricity, airlines, ghee, cement etc. now teh government wants it in gas transmission too...!!!
  • Dec25-2012--After almost five years of terrible military economics teh NA's finance committee seeks teh removal of teh suitcase economist hafeez sheikh...as a citizen i can only point to the price of atta and the Rs15 per unit of subsidized electricity and of course the non availaibility of gas and electricity even in winter...do we really need such rulers...this is a new economic phenomenon...make teh people suffer all the problems and lets enjoy ourselves...an occasional sacrifice will suffice to subdue the aggressive popular reactions..maybe the mna's should also try to engage the people and know what they want too...its not only the economics maestro that is teh problem...
  • Dec25-2012--five killed in balochistan ...four security personnel and a nato truck driver..in a convoy attack and a motorcycle bomb...in quetta, mashkey and and Hub
  • Dec24-2012--while many feel that pakistan's remaining afghan expert amongst all the dead and past ISI experts...General Kayani... is largely responsible for much of teh militancy surviving with his timid handling and teh continuation of teh lingering afghan imbroglio...he has been behind teh americans staying on in afghanistan and also used to suggest strategic depth...others say he only changed after teh american bear hug became too uncomfortable for him personally..others feel that Hina Rabbani Khar has literally hit kiani for a six and allowed everybody to do whatever they want ...solution or no solution...this seen in the light of what many see as cross border suicide attacks...teh Dawn calls Kayani a thoughtful general who is now fully in support of reconciliation on literally all three fronts..this situation might have been realized earlier if teh PPP had not been too frightened of naming a new COAS on time...new military chiefs are known to be a breath of fresh air on complicated problems...many however feel that the US leaving could force the taleban to renew efforts to topple or trouble pakistans government even more...although if pakistan can get to mullah Omar early they could make a seperate deal for teh problems on the pakistani side of teh border...?
  • Dec24-2012--policeman among nine shot dead in karachi
  • Dec24-2012--Bashir Ahmed Bilour one of the most senior ANP men amongst children who was not made chief minister as teh ANP preferred a dynastic approach is buried...belonging to the multi ethnic peshawar the Bilours are in sharp contrast to bacha khans family dynasty
  • Dec24-2012--Tahirul Qadri holds mamoth meeting in lahore and causes fears of an interim regime that would refuse to hold polls until things impove...
  • Dec24-2012--The new punjab governor seems an enigma to many...some say he will better handle teh sharifs...others say he is gilanis man to knock out the bahawalpuris...while many feel that he could be a PMlq man who have teh ear of asif zardari...still many suggest that the zardaris have paid Benazirs legal bills and gotten rid of teh khosa...who had started a war with punjabi beaurocrats in fact asking teh LDA chief to answer charges of contempt for teh governor...i think it would be preferable to give teh PMLn adequate representation in teh punjab breakup commission to solve teh issue..others are calling him teh interim governor...
  • Dec23-2012--11 killed near the iranian border on friday...possible illegal immigrants
  • Dec23-2012--fighters bomb tirah..two killed
  • Dec23-2012--KP senior minister Bashir Bilour dies in a suicide attack apparently carried out by the Darra adamkhel TTP's revenge wing...alongwith seven others in qissa khwani bazaar...the other bilour brother blamed for destroying teh railways and declaring a prize for eliminating a blasphemous filmmaker...he was shown on TV suggesting that they had held unsuccessful talks with the previous TTP leader who had also threatened to end the ANP government...he apparently never lost an election and won five times...he always got to sites of bomb blasts and visited those that had died in teh continuing carnage in and around peshawar...The Bilours had started to court the islamist elements for the next elections..The ANP had been at loggerheads with the mqm in karachi and it could be something election related as teh ANP is teh largest party in nwfp and is attempting to go it alone having previously been in coalitions with the JUIf and presently with teh PPP
  • Dec22-2012--Pir Pagara kicks out mahmood ahmed punjab's governor designate from teh PMLf in presence of PTI's Jehangir tareen a former PMLf worker
  • Dec22-2012--The Dawn says there were 650 cases of polio worldwide in 2011 of which probably 30-60 were in pakistan...many feel that the attention from government and terrorists is overblown and people must try to get their children immunized themselves and teh facilities must be available at all times in all hospitals given the threats to polio workers...while the threats increase governmental attention they will also cause many children not tobe immunized...the government knows the problem areas and they must be aggressively targeted...vaccines widespread availaibility at a low cost could also be of great help
  • Dec22-2012--In what seems tobe relatively efficient performance teh EC says they will be able to complete verification of voters in karachi by Dec 30...mostly new ID card holders to benefit...
  • Dec22-2012--John Kerry appointed US secretary of State as teh US tries to reverse some Clinton activities in egypt and afghanistan
  • Dec22-2012--Asif zardari too becomes an orderly of the court as teh SC orders him to reappoint 2 judges one with a lacklustre performance who were approved by teh JC which he had refused to do..theoretically having signing power suggests that the president becomes the fourth power block in approving judicial nominees..
  • Dec22-2012--taleban commander dies with three others in IED blast in his rustam office in south waziristan
  • Dec21-2012--Malala seeks restoring of saidu sharif college name after students protested it being named after her
  • Dec21-2012--while the PMLf refused to endorse teh PMLn...PPP catches Pmln's mehr sultana from karak while PMln also looking for candidates in many punjab constituences...Abida and fakhr imam also said tobe willing to move away from teh PPP if denied tickets
  • Dec21-2012--an injured polio worker dies in peshawar...three punjab bound passengers shot dead in bolan...banker shot dead in karachi with one other
  • Dec21-2012--only mqm opposes new karachi delimitations as teh mqm continued to protest in a parties meeting with the EC...many regard it as difficult to dent the mqm power in karachi since most mohajirs are already brainwashed and one sees it also quite difficult to create smooth ethnic electoral communities...only punjabis have a common 10% representation in all karachi seats...theoretically the mqm power should increase by delimitation as the few seats with opposition majorities would see that lead vanish...
  • Dec21-2012--government passes a snooping bill which will allow everyones privacy tobe invaded which many say is already being done
  • Dec21-2012--Asif Zardari fires uncooperative punjab governor and replaces him with mahmood ahmed the PML-F leader to drive a permanent wedge between them and the PMLn...PMln will now have to go it alone in south punjab
  • Dec20-2012--Raisani moves no confidence against balochistan assembly speaker..some allege rules not being followed...
  • Dec20-2012--PAC says that government should stop the plots and agricultural land perks for top officers in teh beaurocracy and military...employed people are already enjoying huge favors at teh expense of teh people...however military housing policies are praised...many feel that it is time given teh situation to end plot perks to military officers and privatise the DHA...it would save the government 50-100 billion annually much more than the losses in PIA, railways and teh steel mills...
  • Dec20-2012--five gun attacks on polio workers in nwfp in three cities..two killed..two killed in sohrab goth gunfight as police go looking for polio killers
  • Dec19-2012--policeman killed in karachi...two killed at landikotal checkpost as levies trooper fires at a car which refused to stop...ASWJ worker killed in gilgit and volunteer killed in Swat
  • Dec19-2012--In what can be regarded as a strange turn of events teh military now wants to hold LG elections in the better funded cantonment areas which are generally run properly by teh station commanders...SC asks EC if it is possible at this stage
  • Dec19-2012--altaf hussein backs out of anti judiciary protest campaign as it was causing vastly negative reactions
  • Dec19-2012--another incident of terrorisn occurred outside the air force academy in risalpur where two masked gunmen threw hand grenades at job seekers gathered there injuring 18...
  • Dec19-2012--in what could be retaliatory kiling four polio workers shot dead in pukhtun areas of teh mqm infested karachi..a tribal polio worker was shot dead a day earlier...possible involvement of teh mqm and teh taleban feared...the attacks took place in baldia, landhi and orangi in which four women were killed...karachi is probably teh only major urban area where polio attacks have taken place...killing women is a new phenomenon in teh countries ongoing terrorist war...many feel the attacks against teh soft under belly of the zardari regime as polio workers are neither armed nor protected and it obviously shows a cowardly nature usually not associated with taleban related terrorism...a women polio worker was also shot dead in a village near peshawar...many now feel that the polio campaign should be more voluntary and participatory and could be handled from hospitals or government offices that are more protected
  • Dec18-2012--The interbank dollar market closed at Rs98.26 while teh kerb market went as high as Rs99.70
  • Dec18-2012--EC transfers sindh election commissioner on political complaints
  • Dec18-2012--polio worker amongst six killed in karachi...car bomb blast in jamrud kills 19...blast damages numerous shops and cars...shiite public relations director of teh balochistan government and two policemen shot dead in quetta
  • Dec18-2012--The mqm which now is regarded as little more than an organisation looking for something to create trouble as it is regarded as teh main component of teh karachi problem...they also lack the maturity of considering people as equals...altaf hussein should have flown into pakistan and presented himself as a servant of teh state to the SC and apologized for any remarks he made...but instead the mqm tries to create some instability since they have little else todo..many feel that if altaf hussain wants to participate in pakistani politics he should have teh courage to do it from pakistani soil rather than from a hideout in england...
  • Dec18-2012--according to reports in Dawn some of teh militants in the peshawar airport attack were of russian origin and one left a letter calling the pakistanis infidels who refuse to follow the divine faith and such heretics are liable tobe killed...the pakistani interior ministry also use's similar propaganda against teh militants suggesting that they cannot be muslims...the interior ministry would like to have teh militants considered as evil becauise of strange tattoos on their bodies...tattoos are usually strange in design and are sometimes used to enforce identities...rehman malik in india suggested that the indian security forces were tobe blamed for the success of the bombay militants and blamed the attitudes of hindu extremists for such reactions...in pakistan he uses the opposite logic
  • Dec18-2012--The SC inits continued activism fires the education secretary as ED of teh HEC suggesting that the HEC should hire its own...many feel when teh HEC's Javed Leghari is showing continued favoritism by extending sohail naqvi for a third fourth year term as ED teh primeminister should have teh right to intervene...Javed Leghari too is apparently working for a private university too according to reports...on a more serious note the SC took suo moto notice after raja ashraf nominated his very junior son in law to the position of executive director in teh world bank...The PPP has managed to have him promoted to grade 21 despite having a very junior status...
  • Dec17-2012--The PMlq backs out of supporting kalabagh dam...while other provinces specifically sindh are always willing to irritate or insult teh punjab they seem unable to deal with teh reverse process...many feel that sindh should bear teh brunt of electricity and water shortfalls in future...theoretically kalabagh should have no effect on sindh since their water supply could only improve and not detriorate...nwfp might have to lose 600000 acres of unirrigated hilly land and gain another lake and possibly more irrigation water so they too should have more benfits overall
  • Dec17-2012--The PPP mulling elections in march which could be beneficial to them when there are no electricity shutdowns...however given teh current situation with electricity and gas problems continuing one doubts that even march could be trouble free...however raja ashraf would prefer May so that he can rule a bit longer...many feel with current trends teh CEC might have to appoint a caretaker setup as the PPP is unwilling to start discussions on teh process although he will have to pick one from the sugegstions of teh government and opposition leader...given a raja ashraf speech in kasur it is apparent that teh PPP has nothing to base anybody voting for it in teh next elections...their prospects seem better in teh nwfp but they could still be wiped out in teh punjab...
  • Dec17-2012--five more of teh peshawar airport attackers killed at a hideout in peshawar...
  • Dec17-2012--The mqm seems frightened of bringing altaf hussein to court for contempt of court hearings...many doubt that they can bring many people to teh SC on the Jan 7 hearing...Altaf Hussein who could have to face thousands of murder cases if he returns seems unaware of how to defend a case in court...many suggest that not accepting teh judiciaries orders seem common amongst teh PPP and it might have urged altaf hussein to bring his people onto teh street even though they have backed off from militant negative behaviour of friday when gunmen resorted to firing to close shops...many feel that a contempt of court case against a person who has been teh cause of thousands of deaths in karachi is the least form of punishment...a six months sentence or disqualification from elections is the only possible outcome even though the SC is known to avoid unpopular measures and usually backs away if huge levels of street support are shown...The mqm unable to understand that a monopoly is something that is undemocratic in politics and their militancy has caused teh country enough trouble
  • Dec16-2012--three policemen shot dead in karachi
  • Dec16-2012--In peshawar an attempt to duplicate the mehran base attack failed as two taleban vehicles went up in flames killing upto five militants and two civilians...the taleban said that 10 suicide bombers had been sent to attack the airport...reports of fighting inside teh airport...a few rockets were fired at the peshawar airport area...a vehicle blew up damaging teh boundary wall and a suzuki van went up in flames...
  • Dec16-2012--Sindhs main cities remained shutdown saturdaay after goons riding motorcycles and firing into the air forced bussinesses in major cities to close down on friday...the fear and panic caused the cities to remain closed as an effigy of teh CJ was burnt in hyderabad...the mukti bahini style of the mqm protest against the SC issuing a contempt notice to altaf hussein was seen by many as a weakness of teh sindhis in general and of the law enforcing authorities in particular...The mqm is generally an ethnic based violence prone organisation supported by teh PPP inits antics in karachi but generally shunned by the rest of teh country...Dawn said that nobody had claimed to be behind teh shutdowns while there were some protest demos in karachi..many said that it was a protest while others said that teh closures were out of fear...usually busssiness remain open upto almost midnight in most areas...however normality seemed to return by saturday evening...
  • Dec15-2012--The SC in a way held out an olive branch to Altaf Hussein teh mqm warmonger to come back and answer contempt of court charges in which he allegedly brought the SC into disrepute and threatened teh court on teh karachi delimitation order...Altaf Hussein could legitimize his return by coming back and appearing before teh court and apologizing for his generally contemptuous nature...many suggest that teh mqm has already backed out of opposing the new delimitations...Altaf Hussein fled teh country after karachi gangs threatened to eliminate him in a karachi at war with itself...The courts have generally shied away from initiating cases against teh ethnically militant mqm not even insisting on restarting the over 3000 cases of murder and mayhem against them...
  • Dec15-2012--The SBP brings down its rate to 9.5% as pakistan literally destroyed by a lack of energy resources, high interest rates, continuous price hikes, an unstable rupee and declining foreign exchange resources due to IMF loan repayments...banks have made free money off the SBP and refused to lend as industrial loans are thought tobe a negative investment without adequate electricity and gas...The suggestion that inflation has fallen is only a perception as over four years money supply has risen and there have been price hikes of over a 100% in major commodities...
  • Dec15-2012--The indian agent rehman malik who is busy concocting evidence aginst teh bombay accused says he is frightened to arrest hafiz saeed on teh words of a terrorist...ajmal kasab generally stated that they trained on teh streets, hills and forests and had only seen hafiz saeed at a jalsa...the indians suspect that hafiz saeed originally a university lecturer in islamic studies was the voice that the bombay attackers talked to but many doubt that..one of teh concocted stories made fun off is that the LT had a 25 acre training site near the thatta coast and that informers had reported to police about LT training centers which the investigators never visited...!
  • Dec15-2012--fear gripped karachi, hyderabad and mirpurkhas as gun toting motorcyclists forced teh three cities to close down at 9 pm by firing into the air
  • Dec15-2012--nine PPP legislators in punjab defect to the PMLn and PPP
  • Dec15-2012--LHC CJ says that presidential immunity not absolute and that he cannot commit contempt of court...!
  • Dec14-2012--The PMLn literally drops the kalabagh dam like a hot potato and refuses MMA legislators attempt to get a supporting resolution from teh punjab assembly...Nawaz Sharif says with chances of forming teh next government he has no need to anger the anti kalabagh forces...On teh seraiki issue dost khosa says the rival groups are bahawalpur sooba in bahawalpur...seraiki sooba in multan and south punjab in DG khan...!
  • Dec14-2012--NAB chief backs down and cites procedural anomalies in tax collection and project spending as corruption...he also blamed punjab for 65% of teh corruption...he obviously forgets that increasing tax collections has made no difference to teh country..he and imran khan should remember that all tax collections are converted into price hikes...the same thing used tobe said when tax revenues were 10% of what they are now...the government must focus on reducing expenditure and ending dependence on foreign loans to improve teh economy...The PPP regime is more concerned about allegations rather than focussing on solving teh countries probblems...
  • Dec14-2012--The EC to go ahead with new delimitations in karachi along multi ethnic lines...delimitations can be carried out on computer or with pen and paper since the numbers and ethnicities are supposedly known...EC says 10 political parties reccomendations have been received...given teh overwhelming nature of teh mohajir populace the EC can in theory create more baloch, sindhi and pukhtun provincial seats although changing the national constituencies is not expected to make too much of a differnce although many suggest that at least a sindhi and pukhtun seat or two could be demarcated at teh national level..punjabis who comprise around 10% of teh constituency populations in karachi not expecting to dominate any area...
  • Dec14-2012--Punjabi airport manager shot dead in panjgur while hindu doctor shot dead in mastung..four shot dead in quetta by the LJ...In karachi four more shot dead including two police officials
  • Dec14-2012--US study says that rural households in pakistan spend upto 18930 per month while teh rich spend twice as much as the poor...most of teh spending goes to food, utilities and petrol needs...many feel that food costs more than twice as much as before the PPP rule

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...

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...

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...

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...!

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...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...
