muzzling the courts...!

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

the crook says he has been acquitted in 16 cases

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

the chakri crook

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

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

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

banigala house

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

The SC and article 62...

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

political dementia

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

the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

raheel shareef

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

god save us from the superpowers and the IS

who is teh problem...!

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

extreme soceity
india is an extreme one sided hindu soceity unable to tolerate other religions or even opinions..the modi support group shiv sena blackens a member of the extremist BJP for supporting a book.....india despite having 30% minorities only 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 Aug16-31, 2015

  • 31Aug-2015--In one of the many vagaries of karachis politics rumours have spread that Dr. Asim Hussein might be the behind the scenes controller and financier of Altaf Hussein and company...the resignations of the MQM are now understandable and the exit from Pakistan of Sindh's former numero uno Asif Zardari...that the mqm controller worked with Asif Zardari ie. on the opposite side seems quite shocking and surprising...Dr.Asim apparently orders people knocked off when they get too close or get too involved...while doctors always have been part of the Karachi violence that such a person would be the head of a hospital chain is shocking...Obviously the Karachi violence is undoubtly beneficial to the hospital business in the crooked sort of way...most believe that the chain of investigations might have begun from London and the discovery of huge funds in mqm residences...those investigations many believe led to people in Karachi and amongst them was Dr. Asim Hussein a person with huge interests in Karachi and obviously with access to huge resources...!!!
  • 30Aug-2015--Rangers visit Ziauddin Hospital and arrest an associate of Dr. Asim...The Asim medical empire comprises five hospital facilities all over Karachi..Rangers have issued no specifics on the Asim arrest as yet...
  • 30Aug-2015--Nawaz Sharif had in 1999 toppled the simla agreement with the Lahore agreement...which was toppled by musharaf with the agra summit...now apparently modi has bamboozled Nawaz sharif with the UFA agreement...Pakistan has been unable to make a case of indian terrorism whether it be Karachi, balochistan or the Sialkot border...unless they up the ante the Indians will continue to strangulate relations between the two countries...It means nothing that Pakistan has the power to hit back and than sit around doing nothing...!!
  • 30Aug-2015--14 militants killed in shawal air strikes...!
  • 30Aug-2015--The Sindh chief secretary says that the Rangers have killed 490 target killers, arrested 341 extortionists and freed 50 hostages...they also killed 464 terrorists and seized 349,854 bullets and 8000 weapons...Nawaz Sharif told the sindh IG not quote such figures...at him...however the interior minister has only reccommended three out of 74 Sindh cases for military courts...?
  • 30Aug-2015--The PTI announces candidates for by elections and announces a sitin outside the ECP...PTI regards politics as a mix of elections, protests and self righteousness...while the PMLn regards itself as a do nothing ruler expected to criticize the PTI of which they are frightened, wary and the only aspirant to their power.. ...The PMLn which was abusive and nasty towards the PTI resignations seems to regard the MQM resignations as unimportant and hardly worthy of any attention...In both cases the national assembly speaker literally let the PMLn handle his work...
  • 30Aug-2015--The adhoc approach of Nawaz Sharif is visible in the scuttling of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council which has overseen mushroom growth of improper medical facilities, crooked money minting doctors and medical colleges in Pakistan...The new chairman is an upstart military heart surgeon(nearly everyone in the country needs a stent theory) Maj General AzharKiani(retd) who apparently heads the Punjab paramilitary institution the Rawalpindi Cardiology institute...
  • 29Aug-2015--Sindh chief minister protests at the arrest of Dr Asim for terrorist financing saying he had not been informed and the complaints against Dr. Asim were minor...!
  • 29Aug-2015--In the bloodiest cross border violations the indians killed eight including a women and a child
  • 28Aug-2015--Karachi police blame a group of indian trained mqm terrorists for attempting to increase the recent violence in Karachi...who are apparently in collaboration with an early era mqm terrorist named Javed Langra who went back to india and were involved in an attack on an mqm-h leader killing three...while the trade corridor is not much of an economic whirlwind the PMLn is bent upon saying that is opposed by the indians by its very association with china and the Indians have sent special guerrilla's to attack it...The PMLn has little to show for its recent term in office apart from anti people moves such as the recent new surcharges in the electricity bills...and not being able to end loadshedding even for one month when the dams are full
  • 28Aug-2015--PMLn says that it will participate in the by elections in Lahore and Lodhran as they regard the recent PTI record in by elections as abysmal having lost in mianwali, peshawar and Haripur...while Tareen could contest Imran Khan would have to back down as that would raise the prospect of another by election in Rawalpindi...!many are suggesting that the PTI boycott the elections to raise its demands to replace all provincial election commissioners...however leaving the field open would make it too easy for the PMLn and they could go in as independents in alliance with the PPP and JI and other parties...The PTI did win multan after getting behind an ex PPP independent...!one suggestion is that the PTI attack the pathetic ex speaker ayaz sadiq on his lacklustre performance viz resignations and giving up his job to the PMLn politicos...
  • 28Aug-2015--The armies top echelon says india is the only threat even though border violations occur on the Iranian and afghan borders as well...The Pakistanis however are unable to teach the Indians a serious lesson as they have been firing across the border at sialkots citizenry for many months now...
  • 28Aug-2015--In further setbacks for the PPP an anti corruption court issued non bailable warrants for Amin Fahim and Yusuf Gilani in TCP trade subsidy scams as former commerce ministers...The FIA said they were involved in dozens of cases...
  • 28Aug-2015--The Rangers tell an anti terrorist court in karachi that Dr Asim has been taken into custody for 90 days...he is accused for both misappropriating/embezzling government funds and surprising to say the least is accused also of funding terrorist activities...the latest have been attacks on Godill, wasim akram and the elimination of the Punjab interior minister...one does not know which of the attacks were funded by Dr.Asim...facially he could be either a sindhi or mohajir and for a mohajir who runs a major Karachi private sector hospital such activities would be considered strange...but he is after all close to asif zardari who is no stranger to attacking opponents and he too like mushahidullah had been selected to replace the incumbent governor...Ishratul Abad must have a lot of strings to pull and must be laughing up the PMLn sleeve...!...!during the PPP era he had disappeared to London apparently after serious allegations surfaced...others suggest that he had gone to consult Altaf Hussain on whether he should take up the Zardari offer of governorship...initially he was thought tobe a clean mohajir...!!!
  • 27Aug-2015--A PMLq type muslim league in the offing with PMLn dissidents, ex military men like musharaf and the PMLq baqiyat says the Dawn...
  • 27Aug-2015--PCB goes for a super cricket T20 league in Doha after deteriorated relations with Dubai...while T20 leagues have been held in Bangladesh, india, bigbash and west indies... Pakistan has been unable to get its own league going...the huge remunerations sought by players could see second ranked players and teams participating...however an offshore league cannot count on people participation which could have been assured in Pakistan...the kind of franchises required would need the private sector to fork out large amounts of cash which seems improbable in the Pakistan context...Pakistan cricket players who have played in west indies and Bangladesh super leagues have been waiting for the huge cash dividends...many seem to think that players could themselves form franchises if the payouts justify
  • 27Aug-2015--two soldiers killed in an IED blast in south waziristan
  • 27Aug-2015--A London court allows the police to keep the huge amounts of cash seized from Altaf Hussein and sarfraz merchants premises in a money laundering investigation...many believe that the cash come from criminal processes in Karachi and was not routed thru banks...
  • 27Aug-2015--Brahmdagh Bugti suggests in an interview that they are willing to talk...The Baloch have responded to PMLn and the chief ministers attempts...the separatist violence and its suppression has toned down to quiet a large extent...
  • 27Aug-2015--security forces kill 12 militants in quetta and dera bugti...they were apparently involved in attacking security forces and blowing up pylons, railway tracks and pipelines...
  • 27Aug-2015--Zardari aide Dr. Asim arrested apparently for illegal occupation of land...The Rangers are apparently looking into many cases of land occupation which is an MQM plank...others suggested that he might be expected to answer complaints against him while he was petroleum minister and advisor in the Zardari regime...at that time also he had runoff to England after corruption sharing complaints...now he is the Sindh HEC incharge and the army might want to influence his choice of vice chancellors or even the chief minister might want want him to follow his advice...
  • 27Aug-2015--An NA-154 Lodhran election tribunal deseats PMLn's Mohammed Siddiq Khan Baloch in a contest with the embattled PTI secretary general Jehangir Tareen...The PTI has been subduing internal dissent while the PMLn has shown an impressive winning streak in by-elections...given PMLn's recent record while Khawaja Saad Rafiq went for an SC appeal Ayaz Sadiq is going for participation...all three of the recent deseatings involved important people from both sides and could pave the way for a mid term election if the PTI upsets on all three seats...PMLn seems to have reenergized its system of buying entire biradari's but that might not be able to control the Lahore seats...The PTI will also have to focus on winning and getting its voters out...however it is a major victory for the PTI to get these decisions...The tribunals found it difficult to overturn the decisions however the irregularities caused the decision to order by-elections...It is unfortunate that the biometric test in Haripur failed where only 36% voters were able to get themselves verified by the ECP machines...
  • 26Aug-2015--with the addition of two whoppingly large surcharges the PMLn regime increases taxes on electricity usage to an unimaginable 47.32%...no legal aspect is explained and no approval has been sought from Nepra or the National Assembly...!!!
  • 26Aug-2015--three soldiers die in an attack on a checkpost in south Waziristan while a militant training camp is destroyed in north waziristan
  • 26Aug-2015--Pervez Rashid and Rana Sanaullah both accuse tribunal NA-122 judge kazim ali malik of being denied PMLn favours...the judge responded that I have given over 30 judgements in favor of the PMLn but than they had nothing to say...
  • 26Aug-2015--Army chief says that there would be more military courts for Karachi and there would be no letup in the operation...while the Rangers and police have calmed down much of Karachi they have nothing more to do..Rangers have been crossing into provincial matters of corruption and political Bhatta...lately there have been some reactions from the militants of the mqm and the religious mafia with attacks on Godill, wasim akram and the police...
  • 26Aug-2015--ECP says it is not answerable to the PTI who want an overhaul of its appointees
  • 25Aug-2015--Over 4 kilograms of gold bars recovered from an ANP leaders locker apart from ownership of plots in numerous housing schemes...syed masoom shah was a nazim of charsadda and later an assistant to the ANP chief minister amir haider hoti says the NAB...!!!
  • 25Aug-2015--Interbank dollar rate also jumps after the kerb rate to around Rs104..this follows a drop in exports...and devaluations in india, Bangladesh and china...! US benchmark October deliveries of crude oil also fell to $38.6 while Brent fell to $43.38...
  • 25Aug-2015--The mqm is not too serious it seems about its resignations...there do not seem tobe too many mqm men in custody...some say only two mqm men are in custody...however the mqm has shown no inclination to give up its own violence ridden activities...many suggest that the mqm initially wanted two militants apprehended who were shot dead in a police raid...however the PPP has shown a willingness to listen to the mqm complaints if they want something done about them...when Nawaz Sharif asked them they said sure but we want FIA/NAB and Rangers to keep out of our hair too...others say first the mqm suggests that killers should be arrested when that happens they say the Rangers are only focusing on our bad men...unfortunately Karachi is dominated by the mohajirs and the good, bad and ugly all support one ethnic organization causing the problem...all the mqm leaders have to do is seek a meeting with the home minister or the chief minister and if the complaint has any justification it could be handled...the mqm has previously used the same method to subjugate the MQMh and other parties and have hung on to their biased supporters...they should learn to live with and participate with other politicos...creating one party rule in Karachi will not lead to anything good...they also object to a TV bann on indian agent Altaf Hussain speeches recorded and otherwise...everybody was getting sick of them too...as to their disappearing workers they will only come back after the operation since they are involved in all sort of crimes including police killings, Bhatta and target killings...to form an operation committee the PMLn should seek an mqm responsibility clause...Nawaz Sharif is great on committees..the army got angrier and angrier and the apex committees were formed...now the mqm is irritated and an mqm oversight committee seems round the corner...!things can only only improve in karachi if everyone is given an appropriate powerbase...
  • 25Aug-2015--a colonel and a soldier killed in shawal clashes alongwith six militants
  • 24Aug-2015--The government has allowed military courts to try around 6000 internment centers detainees who have been captured in military conflicts since 2009...area conflicts such as swat, malakand and fata...The ordnance was issued without any information to the public...

  • 23Aug-2015--In another dangerous move the SC refused to allow a military court death row prisoner leave to appeal saying he should goto the HC first...The military had not provided the prisoners family a record of the verdict necessary for the appeal...The court should have simply ordered the military to provide the record of the trial..The prisoners family also stated that the prisoner was under age at the time...The SC turning the whole issue into a judicial joke said that the family should provide detailed verification of the prisoners name, age and education...!!!The new CJ it seems is also a controlled one...
  • 23Aug-2015--After the Indians arrested two Kashmiri leaders in New Delhi to stop any meeting with the Pakistani NSA Advisor Sartaj Aziz who was dillying dallying on Kashmir and attempting to blowup the case of Indian involvements in terrorism in Pakistan also backed down and cancelled the trip to india...Sartaj Aziz who is seen by many as serving iranian interests had earlier forced the UAE shift to the indian sphere with offers from arabs to invest 75 billion in india...Newspapers lambasted Nawaz Sharif and the army chief who were willing to go along with the indians and only talk about terrorism...The Indians apparently were perturbed by Sartaj Aziz waving indian involvement dossiers at them...The Indians want a one way street on everything and are refusing to move ahead on Kashmir and other contentious issues such as cross border incidents and indian terrorism in Pakistan...This has happened despite pakistans continued cooperation on a gas pipeline to india and forgetting the indian army orchestrated samjotha blast...Pakistan should many say solve bilateral issues before allowing india further economic freedoms such as gas pipelines thru Pakistan...
  • 23Aug-2015--The Election tribunal in NA-122 and PP-147 ordered by-elections...that caused the PMLn to lose its speaker National assembly Ayaz Sadiq and Mohsin Latif...a major victory for the PTI...Ayaz Sadiq said he would appeal to the SC...The decision comes more than two years after the elections were held in 2013...
  • 22Aug-2015--Mqm irritated by Nawaz Sharif attitude of not mentioning the Karachi operation during his Karachi visit...the PPP chief minister had indicated that he led the operation and Nawaz Sharif thus could not form an unconstitutional committee of the mqm to oversee the operation...Mqm thus indicated that there was now no reason left for the resignations not tobe accepted...
  • 22Aug-2015--India continuing to try to subdue Pakistan thru three way tactics...refusing negotiations on Kashmir, refusing pakistani meetings with hurriyet leaders...attacking and murdering innocuous kashmiris as freedom fighting militants...cross border attacks on pakistan...subduing harmless pro indians agents like Nawaz sharif and sartaj Aziz and obviously attempting to create only one issue meaningless talks of terrorism...terrorism is a local issue and talks would only be needed if Pakistan wants to provide information against kashmiri and indian militants...!recently both sides have mutually agreed not to process samjotha train terrorists and Bombay raid controllers
  • 22Aug-2015--NA-144 PMLn mna disqualified for submitting a fake Larkana BISE FA degree
  • 22Aug-2015--In a dramatic night raid twenty Rawalpindi police vehicles picked up four from an Islamabad seminary in connection with the khanzada blast in attock...they were released after a few days in custody...
  • 21Aug-2015--Pakistan's three mafia type cricketers will be allowed to play after September 1...Mohammed Asif, Salman Butt and Mohammed Amir...apparently they got involved in a betting scandal for deliberately bowling noballs...which in itself is not illegal since a bowler can overstretch deliberately...salman butt a senior batsman already had over 90000 dollars in his accounts but he was also caught travelling with a huge amount of cash...The craze for money amongst sportsmen is said tobe the cause...while salman butt was not considered exceptional he was playing well as an opener and captain...at that time Pakistan regarded asif and amir as two of their best fast bowlers...however it remains tobe seen if they recover their form and can get selected...some former cricketers have suggested that they should not be considred for reselection...
  • 21Aug-2015--Pakistan's national assembly speaker cancelled a parliamentary gathering after pressure to invite the speaker of the indian held Kashmir a Modi man...Pakistan however went ahead with a controversial Turkmenistan pipeline to india despite almost continuous firing and killings by india on the borders...Pakistan said that it was a Turkmen project and they would theoretically only be paid in gas for the transmission...?Pakistan has already collected around 85 billion from gas consumers in the country for the project and still hiked gas prices as well...
  • 21Aug-2015--reports suggest that an old servant might have been behind the suicide attack on the Punjab homeminister however police insist that LJ or other south Punjab militants could have been behind the attack...145 have been arrested from south Punjab in recent days...Shahbaz Shartif seems in a fix on whome to appoint as home minister given the positions controversial nature...The last two handlers of the position have had problems...
  • 21Aug-2015--The Mqm seems to have failed in forcing an unconstitutional oversight role to itself...Nawaz Sharif has insisted that the karachi operation intensity should be enhanced given recent occurrences while the chief minister suggested that he was in charge and the mqm their childishness not withstanding should contact him if they have any reservations or problems with those arrested or killed or under interrogations...
  • 21Aug-2015--53 militants killed in air and ground assaults in the shawal valley says the army...while the army has played up their success they still insist that the shawal valley earlier considered inaccessible to the military is the last bastion where numerous militants are holed up...a week long air attack suggests that the militants still have a largish concentration and the army despite reservations has been forced to move into the area on afghan and US insistence...
  • 20Aug-2015--Mqm to talk directly with Nawaz Sharif or the interior minister on why it wants itself and its workers given any immunity in the Karachi operations...many suggest that they now have also increased their security demands and might be asking for bullet proof vehicles as well
  • 20Aug-2015--Polling for the first phase in 25 districts of Sindh and Punjab's will take place on October 12 and the other two stages will be completed by the years end...the provincial governments reluctance/fear to hold polling until they had legislated assured control over the nazims has been subdued and almost total control has been ceded to the courts and the ECP
  • 20Aug-2015--while the Indians ie. Modi & co are not oblivious to using the Pakistani support base in occupied Kashmir to form governments... Pakistan rejects them by not allowing a hindu occupied Kashmir speaker into Islamabad while the Indians are threatening to torpedo any meeting with the hurriyat leaders that the tremblingly weak Sartaj Aziz had arranged...earlier the Indians were distressed with the meetings of Hurriyet with the Pakistani ambassador as well while the huuriyet leaders have earlier even visited Islamabad...the indians suppression of travel and meetings shows their pathetic suppression of leaders who are not powerful enough to mount an independence fight...
  • 19Aug-2015--The SC suggests that the ECP can independently announce election dates for LG polls in Punjab and Sindh without consultation of the governments and the SC since it is a constitutional obligation...!earlier the SC questioned why they wanted to hold elections over three days
  • 19Aug-2015--police claim to have knocked off the karachi head of alqaeda
  • 19Aug-2015--Imran Khan who finds criticism difficult to digest says that his wife will only partially participate in politics after being criticized for the Hazara election loss...The PTI must realize that it will be difficult to counter a PMLn alliance with the JUI and PPP...while others suggest that the hazara loss is due to the Humayun Akhter group rejoining the PMLn...Reham Khan apparently turns out tobe from hazara
  • 19Aug-2015--the mqm reportedly resigned because the Rangers would not layoff picking up their operatives or workers for criminal activities and than knocking them off in fake encounters...The PMLn which has lost all credibility over the last few years had to send another troublemaker Maulana Fazlur Rehman to handle the mqm resignations...The mqm initially said the maulana must come to nine-zero...as that happened Karachi's famed motorcycle killers attempted to knock off Rashid Godil an mqm backbencher and Mna...Godil was struck by several bullets and was in a critical state while his driver was killed...in a jovial sense of mqm's attitude many asked the maulana... clear kar lein Altaf Hussein se...pakren ya na pakren...!at least one motorcycle was seen on a television video
  • 18Aug-2015--Airstrikes kill 65 in north waziristan and khyber agencies...unless the attacks are to satisfy Afghanistan Zarb e Azb might not have been totally successful leaving pockets of hidden militants
  • 18Aug-2015--Mqm displaying an immature duality in attitude and a basic inability to comprehend police work says that they have not asked for ending the Karachi operation...mqm which is not part of the government theoretically cannot have a role in any oversight process which is the responsibility of the provincial govertnment, police, rangers, army and federal government...many suggest that they want to be part of the government and are seeking a ministerial level appointment...!reports suggest that the Karachi operation has decreased criminal,religious, militant and political violence
  • 17Aug-2015--The Zarb e Azb operation is going along in fits and starts as another 40 killed in north Waziristan airstrikes
  • 17Aug-2015--Punjab wazir-e-dakhla or home minister Shuja Khanzada dies near Attock in a suicide blast which levelled his dera...along with 18 others including DSP Hazro...it seemed to have occurred on the same day as an earlier attack on the Kamra airbase
  • 17Aug-2015--three soldiers killed in a cross border attack near Chagai.
  • 16Aug-2015--Mushahidullah the minister for climate change has sent his resignation from the Maldives say the PMLn...he had accused than ISI chief Lt.Gen Zaheerul Islam Abbasi of attempting to sow chaos thru attacks on parliament and occupation of the primeminister house...the alacrity with which the PMLn and army denied the story is pretty surprising as nothing was said when a similar report had appeared in the Daily Dawn some time ago...The difference between the Dawn report was only that Abbasi when queried by Raheel Sharif had denied that the recordings were his......reports of ISI funding and support for the PTI Dharna have been quite common...the ISI chief many say was upset at not being considered for the position of the army chief...similar comments are aired about the dharna involvement of another DG ISI Lt General(r)shuja pasha...Mushahidullah is a mohajir and was earlier considered for the position of Sindh governor...In other ISI news one of the most controversial ISI chiefs Hameed Gul died in Murree of a brain hemmorage...that almost closes the Taleban and afghan liberation groups chapter...

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 contest is not so straight

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

military corruption

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

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...!

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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 ...!

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...

syria a new beirut

syria a new beirut
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...
