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

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...

The Daily PakistanPolitics Feb1-13, 2013

  • Feb13-2013--another eight killed in tirah while three are killed in shootings at shops in gulbahar, karachi which dawn says is teh new center of sectarianism..!

  • Feb13-2013--The PMLn's Nawaz Sharif urges teh PPP to desist from further fragmenting democracy and initiate the process of selecting a caretaker...surprisingly he sends a strong delegation to teh ANP's APC on combating terrorism...The PPP on teh other hand is raising if's and buts on dealing with teh TTP which has battered teh army almost into submission with the two timing rehman malik asking them to declare a ceasefire which would be ineffective if it is not a mutual process
  • Feb13-2013--The SC questions Dr Tahir ul Qadris credentials and whether his oath to a foreign queen is a bar on his seeking teh reconstitution of the ECP...many suggest that since tahir ul qadri does not seek tobe elected he cannot be an aggrieved person...while others suggest that teh SC should not go into the morality of the questioner and simply adjudicate on teh legality of teh ECP...
  • Feb11-2013--Dollar jumps acros the Rs100 barrier on government uying...high remmittances have no effect on dollar rates
  • Feb11-2013--US starts moving out of afghanistan as numerous containers cross into pakistan
  • Feb12-2013--pakistan test fires a small tactical 60 km multiple barrel launched nuclear weapon to challenge india's cold start doctrine which aims to quickly invade and capture territory in unguarded areas along teh border
  • Feb12-2013--another fourteen shot dead in karachi
  • Feb12-2013--for muslims of kashmir teh indians are a nasty and mean natured people who donot even handover bodies of muslims they hang to their relatives nor do they allow them to meet them a last time...such acts are common courtesies in most countries...
  • Feb12-2013--The SC questions whether tahir ul qadri being a dual citizen has any rights under pakistani law
  • Feb11-2013--Imran alleges massive new corruption in the Asif Zardari building of a 120 canal home in lahores upscale bahria town...!he says that he is reffered to as 'taleban khan' as well as a 'terrorist without a beard' for being pro taleban...!he said he would fight decadent practices in politics such as vote buying, voting for biradris and ancestral politics...he also alleges that shabaz sharif spent 80 billion on teh MBS while thrashing protesting young doctors who are more interested in higher salaries rather than running hospitals efficiently, repairing medical machinery such as MRI's,CT-scans, ventilators and xray machines and rather than treating patients...
  • Feb11-2013--rockets fired on quetta...nine shot dead in karachi...opposition parties says PPP has been disloyal to sindh and has handed over half of sindh to the mqm...The PPP has been unable to even appoint its governor in sindh despite teh mqm's almost constant troublemaking
  • Feb11-2013--The governments law minister says that Asif Zardari was just a beneficiary of corruption in teh country and not the main accused...one does not know how somebody who ran off with all teh corruption proceeds can just be a beneficiary(involved in SGS-cotechna and augusta submarine deals)...As the swiss route closed teh SC will have to either hear the cases itself or declare the end of the bhutto cases...the money obviously can now not be recovered however teh court could hear teh cases and decide on other ways to recover it...Asif Zardari who does not seem to have any known sources of income/ie. billions is still many say living of teh bhutto wealth...
  • Feb11-2013--The sharifs have a habit of doing odd things..the motorway was one which generally benefited the rich...it also cost a lot and has still not been completed...now they have completed teh Rs29.8 billion mass transit dedicated bus corridor in lahore...with a huge proportion of teh population owning cars and preferring tobe on the roads the punjab cities have a torrid time alongwith the deterioration in teh environment...a copy of an istanbul bus corridor it is still state owned...one corridor in brazil has private buses running with official ticketing...attempts in other cities to have a lane for heavy traffic have not succeeded...The 27 kilometer MBS runs along teh ferozepur roads localities with a 8.6km overhead and is tobe run by a turkish company on chinese made red volvo buses and could be beneficial to women, children and those who occasionally travel along its route...regular travellers now usually have their own transport..an earlier attempt at stopping wagons and suzukis along ferozepur road eventually turned into the MBS...which can be regarded as a sort of mass transit system...The PMLn have made the rest of punjab uneasy with their spending of billions in lahore...to be a real mass transit it would have tobe connected to the airport and other main areas and sort of ending up as a triangle around lahore
  • Feb10-2013--Citibank closes most of its branches in pakistan barring three..It is now literally a US embassy bank...The tottering Askari Bank taken over by Fauji Foundation
  • Feb10-2013--two shot dead in karachi
  • Feb10-2013--one dies in a quetta bomb explosion as police defuse a car bomb
  • Feb10-2013--The taleban offer of talks is still making some waves as Maulana Fazlur Rehman has added his support and has flown to Qatar to meet teh afghan taleban negotiators..?Rehman malik although says the taleban are not serious as he refuses to talk to adnan rashid probably involved in a bannu jailbreak who escaped from jail...Many say the PPP is only interested in fighting which hardly generates any sympathy amongst pakistanis...The PPP has been accused of playing both sides while seeking extremist votes from teh AWSJ/MWM and keeping the pot boiling with teh taleban...The Dawn suggests that the TTP has signed around 16 agreements which have all failed...however they point out that hakimullah mehsud has survived and he probably does not make all teh decisions with their being many factions...however both sides have suffered a lot and a start should be made towards a solution even if they talk on till 2014...while not being a state teh taleban have become a known terrorist organization with a definite capability of fighting the pakistan army in hit and run as well as suicide attacks/IED's/car bombs etc. off and on even though drone attacks also keep pegging away from teh government side apart from military operations and airforce bombings of tribal militant areas and helicopter gunship attacks...
  • Feb10-2013--In a move that could assuage the feelings of the wary PMLn the government replaced KP governor Masood Kausar with Shaukatullah a state minister and bajaur mna...the government has now replaced teh governors of punjab and the KP with border line supporters both controversial as one seems to be a bahawalpuri province supporter turned seraiki nationalist and teh other from the rebellious tribal region...Masood Kausar many say has been unable to handle the taleban...
  • Feb10-2013--In other news teh indians (probably at the behest of rahul gandhi) hanged a kashmir rehriwala afzal guru for the 2001 attack on parliament by five gunmen who were killed...initially it was claimed that the five were pakistanis and afzal supplied teh arms...however since the guy was obviously a fall guy with no direct involvment death sentence seems unfair...occupied kashmiris claim martyrdom...indian hindu extremists attacked teh protesting few in delhi...the indians also hanged ajmal kasab who also cooperated with the indians and told them a tale about the bombay attacks...many feel since this directly concerns teh kashmiris another event could take place
  • Feb10-2013--In what has turned out tobe teh biggest coverup in history the swiss refused to reopen teh Zardari-Bhutto corruption cases...others point to teh fact that the money probably has been relocated by teh Zardari's and many point to Bilawal as the person who has made the money disappear...coincident is the new found sudden love for punjab by teh zardari duo after their nefarious attempts to divide punjab...they apparently have discovered another Benazir built Bilawal house...this time in lahore...where teh two aim to live for a long time...!The Zardaris have shunned lahore for the past five years...also in a related move NAB says the Bahria town chief is not corrupt in acquiring by crooked means 1400 canals of public utility land in the rawat area...
  • Feb9-2013--The sindh high court not known for its activism orders the sindh government to appoint an opposition leader within ten days on the plaint of teh PMLf
  • Feb9-2013--two FC men killed in rocket attack in Kech, balochistan...A iranian tribal elder and his guard killed in taftan by assailants who fled back into iran
  • Feb9-2013--A Herald survey suggests that apart from the over 70 group teh PPP leads in most age groups...in teh over 70 group 46% support the PMLn while the generally held belief that the PTI leads in teh youth group is also not borne out...however teh PTI comes across as teh third largest party with a huge support amongst pukhtuns and hindko people...in teh voter % the PPP leads with 29% followed by teh PMLn and PTI...The PPP leads the pack in the proportion of supporters in the under under Rs.10000 earning group with 44% to the PMln's 37% and the PTI's 26%... despite PPP's price hike philosophy and bad image..PMLq's supporters are also mostly in the lower income groups...In the mid income group teh PTI leads with 59% to the PMln's 55% and PPP's 53 %..The mqm/Ji/pmlq/PTI lead in the 45000-100000 rupee earning group...rich people vote less than the poor and middle income group...The PPP could benefit the most if it went into elections in a coalition...however PTI and the PMLn have their own support group or coalition plans...Inspite of teh survey the PPP is said to have around 15% of teh countries support apart from amongst sindhis where it leads by about 55%...many feel that if the elections see a disastrous result or loss of support to the PPP teh ANP and mqm could quickly turn independent...Many also feel that the election could turn into a two way race between teh PMLn and the PTI if the best candidates are brought forward by the PTI...With a loss almost forecast for the PPP in teh punjab the PPP could be the third largest party after teh elections and could join any other coalition..The PMLq also expected to lose heavily while the mqm could possibly pick up a few seats in sindh and the federal capital..if the PPP forms a real coalition in KP they could defeat the ANP otherwise a comeback of teh PMln-JUIf-JI and the emergence of the PTI in KP is one of teh possibilities...The Herald is generally regarded as pro PPP and anti PMln
  • Feb9-2013--lawyer shot dead in peshawar sectarian attack
  • Feb9-2013--eight militants killed in another drone strike in Fata
  • Feb9-2013--Asif Zardari seems to have teh wrong concept about law and order...he seems to think that the law does not apply to him of he is in bahria town...LHC continues tobe hoodwinked by teh government and its lawyers about the meaning of teh word presidency and being presidential
  • Feb9-2013--Bomb blast in orakzai bazaar kills ten while military planes continued to bomb various areas
  • Feb8-2013--The CEC says that the election commission has been properly appointed and that they are not politically affiliated...Tahirul qadri has initiated a case suggesting that the members were not selected by a parliamentary commission which is only needed if teh opposition leader does not agree...
  • Feb8-2013--a karachi police van was bombed in Orangi town killing one police official...another fifteen people were also shot dead in karachi...The karachi police has taken to using small suzuki vehicles and these obviously cannot survive a blast...many suggest that police vehicles in problem areas be tougher or bomb proof...
  • Feb8-2013--Nawaz Sharif urges the irresponsible PPP to immediately start negotiations with the taleban...although one does not know what the taleban mean by guarantor one supposes that it means that specific negotiators can freely move around and that the army will not interfere in teh process...uptil now teh army has been handling all aspects of the FATA war...many suggest that a team of a top general, politician, fata expert and a foreign office official with experience of negotiations be announced to talk to teh taleban...mostly teh taleban seem to have problems with the military, ISI, liberal politicians and teh shiite sect...to move towards a problem both sides must announce a ceasefire as a first step so that at least elections can be held peacefully...
  • Feb8-2013--I-11/4 katchi abadi knocks out CDA's attempt to get land vacated...mostly pukhtun landgrabbers most of whom seem to belong to one family...In islamabad and surrounding areas most land grabbers are usually christian, pukhtun and from the southern areas like cholistan and sindh...
  • Feb7-2013-AWSJ man an a shiite amongst three shot dead in karachi
  • Feb7-2013--US drone kills three in north waziristan as another ten were killed as jet fighters bombed orakzai
  • Feb7-2013--An interesting case in the LHC on the PPP's seraiki attempts to divide punjab for political purposes...The litigants argue that teh PPP has no mandate on teh issue and it is not mentioned in their manifesto...the seraiki province has only previously been advocated by a one member taj langah party and most observers suggest that it is jealousy against development in lahore that is teh base cause...otherwise development is similar apart from a cricket stadium in bahawalpur, DG khan and chakwal...The constitution only allows changes in provincial borders...The SC has suggested that no major changes to the constitution can be allowed...without either a referendum or teh formation of a constituent assembly...The PPP has literally strangled the center and changed teh constitution into a provincial one from a federal one...many suggest that those for reform should urge the election of a constitutional reform 100 member elected assembly...to rewrite a new constitution which is clear and implementable..many have pointed to teh clause where the government has to provide security of life which is unimplementable under current conditions...measures to form new provinces and end issues of provincial ethnic fighting and tribal rebellions can than be considered..provincial autonomy obviously does not solve problems in KP,fata, balochistan and karachi...
  • Feb7-2013--The ECP stops government from hiring employees at this juncture...the railways and sindh government were attempting to hire people for political purposes...ECP allows non political forces like the army and judiciary to continue hiring..The ECp should also study teh governnment announcing new policies at this juncture and distributing of solar UPS's by shahbaz sharif..he is to distribute 17000 UPS's to matric students in rawalpindi...
  • Feb7-2013--The Government says that asif zardari will no longer use teh presidency for political purposes and will do it from other places...teh government suggests that teh PPP is not in power and is just a family platform with teh PPP(parliamentarians) ruling teh country...the PPP(parliamentarians) was last mentioned in teh last elections...The ECP should not allow teh use of teh name PPP as it is not a registered political party...The LHC should many say disqualify all members of teh PPP from participating in politics...!..for hoodwinking the populace...for practical purposes both have teh same members
  • Feb7-2013--Imran Khan's PTI who is seen by many as teh behind the scenes force of the Pat attempts to form an anti ECP coalition with Qadri but refuses overt support to his six city revolutionary marches...There seems tobe nobody else opposing teh ECP barring the military coup component of teh PPP ie PMLq...the generally PMLn opponents have supported the Qadri platform which is generally unconstitutional in an attempt to divert attention from the surging PMLn
  • Feb6-2013--Aslam Raisani has apparently sent his resignation to the JUIf and BNMa so that they can urge teh government at the center to reconvene teh balochistan assembly and end governor rule...
  • Feb6-2013--The PTI given its new status as a major political party starts looking for allies apart from those in government...they are looking at smaller parties, tahir ul qadri and teh JI...they feel that tahir ul qadri has a following which many still think remains tobe tested...they are also looking at the MWM a shiite party with a small but vocal following...the party itself has several prominent shiite leaders...Imran suggests that his apparent support of teh taleban is due to their agressive anti americanism and his opposition to drones...however he opposes suicide bombings but has a high regard for the taleban's militancy...their party elections have thrownup three groups with Ijaz chaudhry emerging as a possible punjab strongman...
  • Feb6-2013--three days of rain and snow increases teh cold and river flows with record snowfalls in malam jabba of 10feet
  • Feb5-2013--In a another turnaround teh PPP which had been studying ten retired generals for the caretaker position fell back on a retired judge Chaudhry Arif and Salahuddin Abbasi for the punjab CM position while teh JI reccommended a retired judge Mian Allah Nawaz and Dr. Safdar Mahmood...The PMLn has also recommended two well known judges for primeminister...in this situation the PMLn and PPP could take one caretaker slot each in punjab and teh center which are more important politically...a more neutral person would be needed in nwfp while PPP can browbeat teh MQM in sindh and teh magsi's will probably select someone in balochistan
  • Feb4-2013--The PPP seemingly supporting teh violence prone lal masjid mullah who has been acquitted in 26 out of 27 cases..one wonders who was managing the mosque and women seminary when all teh violence took place...if radical elements go scot free due to bad governance or questionable military decisions than such things will happen again many suggest...and pakistan will literally have to import Hollandes frenchmen to control Karachi and Fata...since our fauj and politicians cant handle these things effectively or quickly...might be the terrorists(ethnic or religious) understand french better than the governments lingo...
  • Feb4-2013--five shot dead in karachi..many feel teh killings are a reflection of a frightened ethnic mindset that will not tolerate any opposition to its area power and control...
  • Feb4-2013--NAB attempts a gol mol on the suspicious death ofits investigator(attributed to PPP killers)and the rental power fiasco
  • Feb4-2013--Raja Ashraf takes over from wattoo as punjab PPP president...wattoo/faryal had started picking up possibly stronger candidates from teh opposition as the PPP is being referred to as a breed of dying nineteen-seventy era policy-less politicos and have riled teh PMlq by suggesting that they should become a subordinate power...PPP at best trying to play area politics of biradris/groups which is a muslim league strongpoint having no policies/candidates left to attract the populace...many say that Faryal Talpur can play the aggrieved/apologist in one party sindh but in the multi party punjab she runs straight into a wall..given PPP's anti punjabi mechanisms and attitudes
  • Feb4-2013--The TTP effectively the pro terrorism anarchic taleban wants to talk to teh PPP government inits dying days and asks for PMLn, JUIf and JI tobe guarantors...The PPP too has been announcing policies inits last few days which should have been made in the first few weeks ofits government...many feel that the taleban should wait for the next government and start off with a positive mindset...the taleban will have to end violent activities and become peaceful tribals as a quid pro quo...The PPP has developed a beaurocratic mindset and lacks teh energy, intellect and willpower to make good decisions...militant groups continue fightouts in the tirah region
  • Feb4-2013--JUI-f makes fun of the PPP attitude in balochistan suggesting that they can select a new chief minister for them...the balochistan assembly can have a good opposition and government which could make it work in a normal manner...former chief minister raisani had inducted 64 of teh 65 members of the assembly into the government thus making a mockery of democracy...The PPP has been pushed only by a judiciary literally working as a strong opposition to teh PPP's attempts at making a mockery of decision making,avoiding handling teh countries problems, misguided concepts of democracy, bad appointments and haphazard governance...

  • Feb1-2013--The IHC showed its lack of maturity by not considering the illegality of General Kianis's three year extension...The army chief can only be appointed for three years with usually no extensions...a standard procedure followed since ZAB's times apart from the martial law durations in which army chiefs also refused to go home...many ponder the rumours that GHQ had literally threatened teh PPP regime to get Kiani's extension...The appointment is a political governmental order and does not fall under teh army act...
  • Feb1-2013--The Supreme Courts Chief Justice gets a whopping Rs.784000 as salary apart from the arsalan iftikhar earnings...?

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...

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 ...!

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
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...!!

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...!!!

how to protest

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 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...
