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...!

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

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

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 Aug 16-31, 2014

  • Aug31-2014--Things had stablized somewhat in islamabad however the government has no way apart from the use of partial force against what can be called militant agitators...the Imran-tahir group have put paid to any hopes of acquiring the government now or in the future...Javed Hashmi the punjab university former JI student leader who was ditched by teh PMln has now left the PTI saying Imran has turned into a dictator and refused to follow earlier decisions...many feel he is nearing retirement...The corp commanders conference has been called this evening which could decide pakistans fate for some time to come...many hope the army can come up with something more stable than the bhuttos and sharifs who are the products of two earlier coups...while Raheel Sharif is not considered coup minded the constant turmoil in islamabad would turn a diehard peacenik(unterms of politics) army chief into a coup maker...The sharif government has no way out to douse the imran-tahir agitation unless they want the police tobe really proactive...The army however which uses real bullets can easily apprehend the agitators and clear the area of continuous turmoil...however whether they too have got fed up with the sharifs is not yet known...In case they have than starting from a mini martial law in islamabad it could soon turn into an interim military regime which could easily organize elections after jailing the agitators and the sharifs or simply they might bring on a new primeminister and chief minister...In case they are pro sharif than a real military buildup would be necessary to clear the area and bring the embattled sharif government in islamabad and lahore back to normalcy...In case of an immediate agreement they could easily setup an interim government to hold elections...It would largely depend on the corp commanders whether they want to reenter government so soon after demise of the Kiani led Zardari regime with the previous coupplotter still not thri his article six trial, a new candidate could emerge for a second trial...!many have surmised that some radical general or two could be behind the agitation which in hindsight has been terribly handled by the sharif's...The country would be in deep trouble if another military religious zealot emerged to take power...many feel that militant religious zealots whether civil or military should be avoided...!
  • Aug31-2014--The PPP again turned turtle and started opposing the government as parliament house was barely under the control of soldiers with real bullets...the lawns were occupied by the imran-tahir group...the soldiers will only open fire if ordered by the army chief...karachiites also refused to leave their homes and it turned into a ghost town...intermittent clashes between police and the imran-tahir group continued...Imran-tahir-altaf propaganda against the police has failed as they are regarded as doing their duty even under difficult circumstances...Imran Khan enjoying a scrumptuous breakfast while tahir qadri was begging for water apparently...many are suggesting that the PMLn mount a similar protest against the absent rulers of KP...chief minister KP acting as imrans security guard and manservant...there were no major casaulties as the police did not use real bullets and only fired tear gas...which the protestors are getting used to...the attacks from the imran-tahir groups were vicious which is shown by the large number of tear gas cannisters lying around...many of islamabads pavements are no more which were torn asunder by the unruly protestors to use as stones thrown on police who threw them back
  • Aug31-2014--Early morning situation suggests that overnight attempts to occupy parliament and primeminister house have failed...The police handled things pretty well in the skirmishes while the army(VIP security forces) cooly stood up to invaders at parliament house...demonstrators were being shown pushed down the hill probably from primeminister house which is at a considerable height...several camera vans staffed by mqm types were opened and thrashed by the police after they started turning openly against the government...most mqm type channels were spewing out propaganda against the government including adverse statements by the sindh governor...one of the most serious nawaz sharif mistakes include not replacing the sindh governor and having a political incompetent as the punjab governor...the governor and president are literally unaware that the people are not all millionaire bussinessmen...most mqm channels were in a fix as altaf hussein did several sommersaults during the night..joining the marchers at one stage and than again moving onto a midway spot of being an anti government onlooker...altaf hussein who has suffered from allegations of killing opponents in karachi,looting people,money laundering, killing a senior party member Imran Farook and throwing people his men had killed onto the streets in body bags...he needs a government change to rehabilitate himself and bring the mqm into the government...reports of police-demo clashes on the melody-polyclinic road...while things could get hotter in karachi and lahore
  • Aug31-2014--In a major escalation the imran-tahir militant natured groups moved towards the primeminister house and the police retaliated with tear gas shelling causing instant problems to the violence prone followers of the imran-tahir group...at least one death has been reported...Arytv is reporting seven deaths while others are saying no death took place...numerous injuries as the protestors withdrew back to the parliament area and started brandishing sticks... they subsequently broke thru the fence and entered the parliament compound...reports suggest that the army pushed them back but they have re-entered the compound in greater numbers...cleared again says the interior minister...the intentions of the imran-tahir group are now quite dubious and they have launched protests in other major cities...tommorrow they intend to march on jati umrah the nawaz sharif residence in lahore with strikes in karachi...the MQM with its known cloak and dagger nature has also announced joining the protests...Imran khan says he is working on an agenda that creates anarchy...that makes him a disciple of the terrorist tahir ul qadri...The PMLn seemingly fuddled seems to have no clear way of dealing with violence prone militant types...while nawaz sharif might not be directly blamed or culpable he seems almost totally impotent in the face of an opponent who is not hiding in the hills of Fata...the government now should get off its haunches and deal with the situation otherwise the primeminister should resign since he does not seem to really control the country irrespective of the protests...It is the governments responsibility to deal with law and order as well as development and electricity problems and terrorism...on most fronts nawaz sharif has shown an inability to deal with the situations past and present...just sitting in cabinet meetings and rarely attending parliament..he only seems to like foreign trips but has shown an irresponsible nature in dealing with most people problems...his only success has been against the taleban whom he has doused to a large extent...he has lost more support on the electricity tariffs that he has allowed tobe introduced than anything else but because of the varying individual effects people donot react despite the harming influence of a governmental activity...it is now almost certain that imran khan only seeks to topple him and is hardly concerned with electoral reform or dhandli...in fact he seems to be participant of the london conspiracy alongwith altaf hussein...
  • Aug30-2014--Three missing baloch men found dead on teh outskirts of Malir, karachi
  • Aug30-2014--Imran Khan and Tahir(death to my opponents) literally jumped and ran to the army chief as if children to a new ball...while Imran Khan has always wanted the armys approval Tahir literally wanted some general to do his bidding...the army many say prefers the occasional shahid afridi heroics to the calm winning style of Imran Khan in his cricketing days...anyway the confusion again ruined most of it as there was opposition to the words mediator, facilitator and guarantor...the army has played this role before and usually ends up taking over...Anyway there was no major change but the talks restarted...apparently the army told Tahir that he had no major role left in the agitation and that Imran Khan should talk about the dhandli commission and they would ensure its proper working and implementation...!others say facilitation means..."better start talking or" while mediation means "nawaz is saying this what do u say"...if u have trouble meeting on the street u can meet in the ISI chiefs office round the corner...The meaning of guarantor seems difficult to define...as it could mean couping and eliminating Nawaz Sharif if he is involved in dhandli or forcibly clearing islamabad if Nawaz Sharif wins...nawaz sharif who was easily frightened by the PPP does not seem too perturbed by the drone or clone antics...others suggest that clones of nawaz sharif have been sitting even in meetings with the army chief while imran khan said tobe looking for lookalikes if he has to commit harakiri...!others are suggesting the government should be quick to a solution otherwise these pukhtuns might start building mud huts in front of the national assembly...pukhtuns have been doing a creeping occupation of rawalpindi and islamabad since the mid sixties of ayub Khan...from selling corn on the cob and polishing shoes they have become owners of plaza's and big bussinesses...all the cobblers are usually pukhtun as is the current president
  • Aug29-2014--many are particularly waiting to see if the two marches really mean todo something if their talks fail or they will just go home with the tail between their legs...so fireworks or nawaz goes or they go...bringing in the army chief is dangerous as he might get too interested and takeover since the politicians really cant control or do anything without the police and army or he might start phoning in daily advice if he is successful in defusing the marchers...!
  • Aug29-2014--In another twist to the "two madmen" drama in islamabad the army volunteered to help resolve the two issue's after apparently suggesting that it was quite amusing and that nawaz sharif should continue his brand of non intrusive donothing dictatorship(dont know what to do please help)...nawaz sharif, his men and some of the PPP's and JI's men have failed to foment any consensus...others suggest that the JI which is particularly attractive to military and civilian dictators might be willing to form a caretaker regime under...!...many feel there is little difference in the qadri and mqm brands of terror politics...According to the Gilani precedent the primeminister has to go only if convicted or has a weak conscience...The SC said that it could order the army to clear the area under article 190...and obviously clear the constitution avenue of the riff raff...this after the delusional Tahir ul Qadri refused to accept the new FIR that the PMLn, police and judiciary had crafted...this after JIT reports said that armed men had been spotted on the rooftop of Qadri's office in the model town incident...Imran Khans constant movements even while standing suggest that he might be on insulin while his puffy eyes suggest that he should be on diuretics...!...while the Qadri-chaudhry duo accept no responsibility for the incidents the LHC has displayed a partiality for the Qadri brand of politics which may give them the chance to hang another primeminister/chief minister...both qadri and imran have to accept that the country does not need this brand of street dictatorship...there are enough education opportunities available in the country if children want to study or their parents want them to study...the governments past and present have destroyed employment opportunities for the educated and created no incentives for the locally educated...imran khan was already an acknowledged fast bowler when he went to england and only learned how to bounce from a good length...i dont think he learned his container politics from oxford which probably has a benazir tinge although she was blasted away...Qadri especially needs to know that the judiciary cannot be dictated to and probably governments as well...
  • Aug28-2014--talks faulter and meander to an unfinished end although reports suggest that Qadri has accepted a muk muka...The government should study appointing local political governors with the mqm governor almost threatening the government...both sindh and punjab governors imports...a bid to lodge a model town FIR failed as PMLn and PAT agitators barged into the police station...SC fears that such agitations could become the norm if this government is toppled as every future government could be threatened into subservience...ECP again rejects allegations and demands for its removal...PTi also submits 28 members resignations to the punjab assembly
  • Aug28-2014--three policemen and a doctor shot dead in karachi
  • Aug28-2014--In UK a man has been arrested for the murder of Imran Farook apart from three earlier suspects
  • Aug27-2014--The PTI finally able to file 31 of their 34 Mna's resignations...!
  • Aug27-2014--with the Taleban disappearing in the face of greater odds and drones...the violence prone independent groups of mohmand, orakzai and bajaur form a new group called the jamaatul ahrar
  • Aug27-2014--with PAT again threatening violence and wearing kafans...which is anti islamic as only a dead body should be wrapped in a kafan...The PMLn is unable to resolve the issue and at best they can only reasonably call a mid term election and forcibly remove the protestors...the other options are like literally accepting death sentences...the only option reasonably available to the PMLn to appease the marchers is to replace the primeminister and chief minister and tell Imran Khan and Qadri to go to hell and obviously file an FIR that is acceptable to both sides...The judiciary seems at best like firing shots into the air without giving a judgement that can resolve the situation...as the Chief Justice of the SC said they are just left to handle the dirty laundry...protestors have taken to drying their clothes on the iron railing at the SC...The three investigations into themodel town incident ie judicial tribunal, JIT and police all suffer from serious imperfections and are designed to serve various special interest groups...The PAT would probably agree now to let the judiciary handle it although the PMLn too thinks that they can handle the judiciary
  • Aug27-2014--The SC says clear the constitution avenue...the government says noone can...as the military starts getting riled up at the PMLn inability to solve things...In lahore a possibly minority judge rules that despite it not being a matter of culpability and arrest police should initiate an FIR against 29 including the primeminister...prima facie the judgement seems pretty wrong as in that case the FIR should also include the litigants that is PAT, its senior leadership and violence prone workers plus chaudhry shujaat/ qadri for conspiracy to revolt and topple a government...given the video evidence the police were provoked and forced to act and PAT according to police initiated the firing...government barriers and those privately setup are two different issues and creating nogo areas is wrong...
  • Aug25-2014--The PMLn is trying to gets its demo's going but the motivation or probably the money is not init...The rallies are small and donot as yet counter the PTI-PAT image...!
  • Aug25-2014--while the government and shah mahmood qureshi insist that five of the six demands have been agreed to by the PMLn...however Imran Khan is moving towards a more effective agitation method by attempting a paya jam strike...many suggest that Nawaz Sharif looks like he is waiting for a sucker punch...others say that they maybe able to appease Tahir ul Qadri by merely initiating an FIR and possibly replacing the ineffective punjab chief minister...Tahir ul Qadri's latest threat was to turn the national assembly into a graveyard...while many feel that imran khan is just shadow boxing he has been able to make many a diehard afficionada think that rigging must have taken place...
  • Aug25-2014--In what maybe called a journalist doing a journalist a favour Afzal Khan a former APP employee who has spent the rest of his life wiggling around the ECP in various positions accuses everyone involved of rigging elections in a PTI supporting Mubasher Luqman show on ARY Tv...nowadays the APP is issuing tirades against imran khan alongwith nawa-e-waqt and PTV
  • Aug24-2014--Death tolls from clashes in Kech reach 16...five militants killed in Orakzai in a clash with volunteers...In karachi three shot dead at a shrine while later two ASWJ men shot dead
  • Aug24-2014--PTI suggests that Nawaz Sharif resign for 30 days to complete the investigation of the rigged election...many feel that with the emerging situation that means he should go home for good
  • Aug24-2014--Asif Zardari went to meet Nawaz Sharif at raiwind the controversial land grabbing home of the sharifs...in an initial opening he suggested "abhi bhi 50-50 kar lo"..."kiya" says nawaz sharif..."raiwind palace for gods sake"..."no no" says nawaz..."however since u like me as primeminister so much u can join the government"..."50-50" said asif zardari again...The balochis these days are the biggest supporters of a punjabi primeminister
  • Aug23-2014--the ASWJ drops into the PMLn camp decrying the shiite supported PAT and PTI who they accuse of trying to foment a shiite dictatorship..they advocate a sunni shariah...the shiite supporting Dawn also rejects the marches...The ASWJ says 7000 of their workers have been killed by military, political regimes and extremist shiite/opponent groups but they have never mounted a street level agitation
  • Aug23-2014--another rainstorm hits peshawar killing 13 and destroyed two power pylons...
  • Aug23-2014--an FC soldier and civilian killed on the balochistan border as the intrusion of 70 men probably smugglers was blocked in qilla saifullah...In a gunbattle in dasht, Turbat the FC killed another 12 militants..
  • Aug23-2014--PTI has presented 27 of its 34 MNA's resignations to the speaker of the national assembly which should be accepted in about two weeks says the speaker...however negotiations were resumed...with some suggesting that the primeministers resignation as also discussed...The JI warned the PMLn that it might have internal opponents as well...some reports suggest that punjab governor chaudhry sarwar could emerge as a consensus interim figure although other sources suggest that it might be the unpopular finance minister...The media pressure on the PTI that it was losing support could force it to accept the SC commission...asif zardari whose do nothing attitude almost pushed the PPP into the gutter is also jumping onto the nawaz sharif bandwagon...The interior minister however continues to attempt to shift his responsibilities onto the PTI...his suggestion that the containers could stop a suicide boomber seem pathetic...even when the taleban threats were at their highest no containers were ever placed to block them barring the military establishments blocking a street and using concrete blocks in saddar rawalpindi and at the marriott in islamabad...
  • Aug22-2014--The pakistani economy has taken some hits from the marchers with the dollar getting to 101 as people like ishaq dar and nawaz sharif probably started to buy dollars to cover their families foreign stays...bussinessmen and teh rich are not very patriotic in such circumstances
  • Aug22-2014--It seems to have become apparent that the PMLn has been elected by the ECP rather than the people...the assemblies apparent suggestion that asking for the removal of a primeminister is unconstitutional seems pathetic in a parliamentary democracy...only the courts can declare anything as unconstitutional...The PPP and PMLn both seem tobe supporting a dicattorial primeminister who wants to do whatever he wants rather than be a point man for the people...the nawaz regime seems tobe moving towards being a GHQ controlled democracy...many are comparing the 2013 elections to the musharaf referendum and the ayub khan basic democracy elections...4% votes and i am president...it is the general impression that the PMLn elections were padded with extra votes which is why they are frightened of checking a large number of constituencies...that is the reason for the PTI's call for removing the fake primeminister...many feel that since most politicians are descended from the ayub khan military regime they have a basic animosity with the people and consider personal dictatorial rule as a preferred mode...if recent events are tobe studied than crowds have proved tobe government removers in many places...
  • Aug22-2014--by evening the government was again turning cagey on talks and had fired the Islamabad IG Aftab Cheema as supposedly he had asked for written orders on attacking the marchers...the PMLn also orrganized an attack on shah mahmoods multan home...in his place comes khalid khattak...!...the police are looking like very decent people compared to the violent verbally and otherwise politicians and danda/stone/iron rod biradri...apparently mustafa khar agreed that PAT had fired just four bullets at the police in model town incidents...mustafa khar in his time had organised a police strike and than brought in PAT type workers to handle roundabouts...Imran Khan has backed out of talks after the government refused to as they say even talk...he castigated the US for their interference and threatened the new IG and interior secretary as containers were again being placed to contain the demos...many feel that nawaz sharif can easily be replaced by almost anyone in the PMLn without it making too much of a difference...Shabaz Sharif considered by many tobe spine of the sharifs seems to have been knocked out by tahir ul qadri and in his place the innocuous or dumb looking punjab governor has started to lead the pack ...tahir ul qadri made fun of the empty national assembly and said that they even charged the country for aspirin and obviously suggesting that his one man dictatorship would be much better...
  • Aug21-2014--by last evening both marchers had issued their demands and committees for dialogue were in place with the PAT-PMLn meeting already having taken place and the PMLn-PTI meeting was taking place around midnight...emerging from hibernation into the committees were the controversial mustafa khar from PAT and ejaz ul haq from the PMLn...the imran khan demand was the resignations of Nawaz Sharif and ECP with new elections and Dhandli accountability...at the moment the PMLn was saying nothing doing on the resignation or an interim government...however Nawaz Sharif was scheduled to address the nation tommorrow...he could be gone by midday leaving a PMLn in turmoil with no suggestions who would takeover the reigns...other suggestions include an acceptable interim PMLn premier with Nawaz Sharif receding to Jati Umra while some are suggesting that he could jettison Shabaz Sharif while holding on himself...still others suggest the president could than ask him to carryon until a solution or heir is selected...that would solve the resignation issue in the interim...Imran Khan however is so in love with the roads of islamabad he says he wont leave until the Election Commission aka nawaz sharif at least go...what Imran Khan wants is a new election under a new ECP with accountability of dhandli...The PMLn according to their propaganda says that democracy and the constitution should be kept in the framework...when a premier can resign asking him to so is hardly unconstitutional...the situation handling of a fraudulent election is not in the constitution...the constitution can only deal with constituency aberrations...The PMLn is saying that a commission should look into dhandli allegations with the JI suggesting that around 30 constituencies be checked...an agreement could easily be reached on various aspects of how and when...the Qadri demands relate more to the model town incidents since noone wants him as a one man dictator..the PMLn says that the one man tribunal has reached conclusions without any evidence and now Qadri who intially opposed is supporting the tribunal report while the PMLn is opposing...again ways can be found to reach an agreement...
  • Aug20-2014--three policemen shot dead in karachi
  • Aug20-2014--In lahore the LHC sought government comments on why a lahore model town judicial enquiry report should not be made public...In related comments Qadri said that he had funds for running an agitation for two years...
  • Aug20-2014--In continued airstrikes on taleban hideouts in khyber and NW 48 militants were killed and 12 hideouts were wiped out...This comes in the wake of some renewed taleban activity...In Bajaur six were killed as a roadside bomb struck a school van...
  • Aug20-2014--In what can be termed as a breaking of the shackles the PAT and PTI moved into the red zone...It can also be termed the crane march as a crane was used to remove numerous containers on the way...with the march leaders agreeing not to attack buildings and the diplomatic enclave the governments resolve crumbled and the VIP security service, police and rangers cleared the way and moved inside buildings like the parliament...Imran Khan said that if nawaz sharif did not resign than they would occupy the nearby primeminister's house...Qadri however said that was imran khans shararat...the sitin was tobe outside parliament however in the morning the qadri supporters had moved to the gates of the state secretariat further up the road...The imbroglio deepened with no contacts between the warring parties...The ISPR in a surprise move asked the government and opponents to exercise restraint and initiate a dialogue...opposition initiatives fell by the wayside as they generally opposed imran khan/qadri's extreme moves...
  • Aug19-2014--The pathetic Modi regime calls off secretary level talks as is the general nature of most indian governments...they say the pakistani ambassador met a hurriyat leader...pakistani leaders and ambassadors have been meeting hurriyet leaders for over a decade and they have even visited pakistan...so that is nothing new and no reason..many feel that the indians with the Nawaz regime in trouble would prefer to wait and see whether the pathetic do nothing PPP regime returns to power...whom they could roll around much more easily...
  • Aug19-2014--four killed in karachi in probable sectarian atatcks
  • Aug19-2014--The JI has suggested that 30 seats from three big parties should be opened for reevaluation and if things seem tobe dhandli prone than relections be ordered countrywide...while this is constitutionally impossible legally it could lead to opposition from the sindh, balochistan and KP provincial assemblies...meanwhile the PTI suggested that they were ready to resign from the assemblies but were heldup by complications from KP...many have questioned why the PTI is sitting in assemblies that might have been elected by fraudulent means...elections have tobe held within a stipulated time frame after the assemblies are dissolved or resignations take place...The Election Commission has again rejected allegations of fraud and dhandli...Imran might yet reach the primeminister house as he has threatened to invade the inviolable red zone with Qadri saying bhe will spread his agitation countrywide...The KP ministers were celebrating as they would not collect federal taxes or pay taxes/utility bills...many suggest that one option could be for Nawaz Sharif to form a wide ranging coalition or even find a consensus primeminister to handle the crisis...
  • Aug18-2014--after dousing his threats to invade the primeminister house Imran Khan labeled Nawaz Sharif as corrupt saying that he has bribed judges, journalists and even attempted to buy generals...despite his own views of literally doing a french revolution on Nawaz Sharif he said that he would be peaceful but the workers might not be stoppable...he announced a civil disobedience movement and some say he wanted his mpa's and mna's to resign as well...tahir ul qadri announced a 48 hour ultimatum and tried to suggest that he was just a normal revenue gatherer and he would subject the populace to just more taxation and the problems in his path too were just the Sharif's...Nawaz Sharif on the other hand also tried hide behind the limited existence of parties like the ANP, Mqm and JI...and he was trying to make multi party negotiating teams for the two diehard opponents...it could be an exercise similar to the failed taleban negotiations and Imran/Tuq should ask for talks directly with Nawaz Sharif our a senior minister...!
  • Aug17-2014--In late developing news Imran Khan who seems tobe attempting to snatch the crazy crown from tahir ul qadri said that they would occupy the primeminister house today...that would be a severe challenge for the security apparatus as the army has been specifically called in to protect that area...even though the constitutional avenue is not too well protected it depends on Nawaz Sharif whether he would block Imran khans new movement plans...ie give the order to shoot and kill or hand over the primeministers house...
  • Aug17-2014--In developments that caused more hilarity the march participants were seen roaming around murree reported one Tv channel...Imran Khan seemed to diasappear after a fajar speech...and tahir ul qadri reverted to his unconstitutional takeover threats by literally kicking imran khans views in the butt...most of his views seemed to reflect those that comeup after a military takeover...many feel that tahir ul qadri could be a front for a retired general or a party licking its wounds with no hopes of power...with coup plotters in attendance many regard the march leaders as dangerous...who could even have more dangerous hidden liaisons...In further trouble for the Sharifs a lower judiciary judge ordered that a case be initiated against nawaz sharif, shahbaz sharif and his ministers for the model town violence
    ... Nawaz Sharif who seems to lack a capacity for self thinking wants to rely on the JI chief for negotiations but he became controversial by saying that he is now in the Imran Khan camp...many felt that the punjab governor was unclear in his thinking despite hearing verbal violence from the march camps...Tahir ul qadri tried to get shops to open in islamabad suggesting that his violence prone followers would pay for what they took..others commented that those who did not pay toll taxes would hardly pay for anything else...The two marches only agreed on their animosity to the sharifs otherwise they were poles apart...If the Sharifs go than they could be replaced by others from their parties. Not many place much hope in any acceptable interim setup for elections...most are thinking of the slow and plodding Mariam Sharif who was becoming a possible heir apparent...until things started to unravel...
  • Aug16-2014--In another development the SHC refused to deploy judicial officials for two by elections in sindh...
  • Aug16-2014--four militanst killed near landikotal as security forces fire a rocket at a car that would not stop for checking
  • Aug16-2014--the two marches finally arrived in islamabad in the night and camped on two parallel roads the suhrawardy and the kashmir...rains pelted islamabad and more were forecast to possibly drown their unconstitutional intentions
  • Aug16-2014--The SC hearing a petition from the SC Bar association barred all state functionaries primarily the army to resist any unconstitutional urges...while the army has let Nawaz Sharif handle everything the situation could turn uncertain given dictatorial tendencies in the march camps...an earlier decision also bars SC judges from supporting any unconstitutional power monger...one judge Saqib Nisar however was missing from teh panel...
  • Aug16-2014--at least sixteen people were killed in peshawar rainstorms causing criticism tobe levelled at the chief minister who was whiling away his time in a state guest house in islamabad participating in an imran khan march...alongwith his ministers...
  • Aug16-2014--by midnight both marches were near or on the outskirts of rawalpindi and there was some confusion where they would be held ...Imran Khans trek on a truckcontainer ended in gujranwala where PMLn protestors showered him with bricks and shoes...there were allegations of bullets being fired at the container and PTI leaders finally shifted to cars and drove on under police protection...what Imran Khan was saying that he would not budge from islamabad until Nawaz Sharif resigned...that presently seems impossible so there would have tobe some sort of negotiations before the sit-in ends...Nawaz Sharif is not regarded as too strong willed but there is no heir apparent in the PMLn...If the army does not push than Nawaz Sharif can survive...if Nawaz Sharif goes than so will his long time colleagues and possibly a younger candidate could takeover...There is no possibility barring unconstitutional means in which Imran Khan /tahir ul qadri can literally be handed power...the two marches headed out seperately and tahir ul qadri continued his unruly behaviour by suggesting that he be allowed to roar on the constitutional avenue...The interior minister made it clear that the red zone must not be breached as it would be dealt with uncompromising force...the sitins on offer were initially zero point that shifted to the kashmir highway for the PTi and Pat was refusing to hold theirs on the seventh avenue...

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
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...

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...

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 ...!

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...

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...

teh arabs really cant solve anything without a bloody fight...aspects of iraq and beirut make syria look like a new beirut...teh destruction in Homs

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...
