the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

  • Nov26-2015--Nawaz Sharif replaces GB governor with Mir Ghazanfer Ali
  • Nov25-2015--In one of the most blatant violations of justice an accountability court acquits Asif Zardari in the SGS-Cotechna...many believe that asif zardari eliminated his wife to get power as well as enjoy the fruits of corruption without sharing it with anyone...he reportedly received around 18 million dollars from the swiss firms one of which was iranian owned...the judge said he was only provided photocopies of documents...!
  • Nov25-2015--Turkey shoots down a russian plane bombing turkmen near its border...earlier the turks shot down a syrian plane as well

  • Nov22-2015--Milli Yakjehti council criticizes the pakistani and Bangladeshi SC's and Nawaz Sharifs history of hinduistic attitudes
  • Nov22-2015--despite the fact that most of the motorway has been built by his opponents Nawaz Sharif still suggests that they have halted progress...he forgets that he had used up all the resources when he was kicked out by the muhajir military chief that he had personally appointed overlooking more competent generals...he had also ignored the year long preperations for the coup and still tries to dupe the country by cooperating with the musharaf riff raff ...Nawaz despite being from a lohar family can barely think beyond roads and wants people to be fooled by the pukhtun corridor as something that will create development...even if a hundred Chinese trucks go up the karakoram highway daily it will make no difference to the countries development or the people...it will just cause more pollution...the Chinese have already been found problematic in the projects that they execute such as Nandipur, neelum-jhelum, national assembly solar system etc. and are found to be uncooperative and they are almost as expensive as the westerners...they also find it difficult getting along with Pakistani workers...a road in itself like the motorway is no guarantee of development...money has just been sunk into a road for the last twenty-five years which is at best a road for the elite...in fact the sharifs have consistently destroyed Pakistani manpower resources and wasted economic funds...while metro's can be considered extremely costly for a few busloads of people they will hardly contribute anything to the economy...at the moment the country cannot do anything itself ...in fact it does not even manufacture a mobile phone yet...!
  • Nov22-2015--factory torched in Jhelum over allegations of quran burning
  • Nov21-2015--as Pakistan crashed to a oneday defeat against England there were muted calls for the return of mohammed amir after their three fast bowlers were thrashed by the upto now subdued Jos Butler...amazingly they quickly recalled umar akmal after he he had another bout of lawless behavior into the 2020 side after the pakistani batters showed a poverty of skills...a Riffatullah Mohmand type could have blasted the English bowlers...many saw the need for both oldtimers Mohmand, Misbah and Mukhtar in the one day side after the hajj returned azhar showed a reluctance to return to form
  • Nov21-2015--four rangers soldiers killed in Karachi outside a mosque by motorcycle riding killers
  • Nov21-2015--Zulfikar Mirza bashes the PPP in Badin while the PPP and PMLn still rule the roost in two different provinces. The LG polls are openly dominated by the provincial governments and Fafen says that at least 6% polling staff were found stamping ballots..!PTI begging for army protection on Dec 5 so that they can win somewhere at least..!
  • Nov21-2015--The army chief admitted defeat in Afghanistan and the US wanted its key role back while they still apparently donot know anything about Kashmir...Biden and Raheel tried to quiten opposition to the army chiefs literal takeover of foreign affairs...!
  • Nov21-2015--In a damning criticism of the army the Dawn prints a hoodbhoy article stating "like cartoon generals who have won no wars but have medals stuck to their oversized chests pakistan now has a legion of ignoramus cartoon paper PHd professors whose research is only internet based..."...Pakistan army which has an oversized ego but has won no wars but are important for the defence or lives of rulers live on media praise and milli naghma's...the present army chief has mounted one of the most obvious media campaigns in the press and media to build himself up...apparently a film is also in the works after numerous drama's and propaganda press releases...many regard the Pakistan army as a balloon filled with hotair and their standard behavior is similar to the Abbottabad misadventure...!
  • Nov20-2015--Sartaj Aziz says dossiers on india have no evidence but show a pattern of involvement with terrorists and insurgencies
  • Nov19-2015--with the second batch of LG elections taking place Dawn highlights how shahbaz sharif and qaim ali shah have literally reduced the LG authority to almost nothing...even parks, waste management, water and sanitation is tobe handled by the provincial government thru various types of beaurocratic and private authorities...most of the work left to the low tech LG's seems tobe planning...their prime function seems tobe streets, roads, drains and water supply lines and overseeing things like natural disasters, graveyards, kilns, lighting,encroachements, bazaars and markets...how they are to help orphans and the disabled is beyond understanding...non governing parties are thus almost totally disabled...
  • Nov19-2015--after stopping polling in sanghar the ECP further stops polls in 76 Sindh councils due to the SHC's concerns about delimitations
  • Nov19-2015--Dawn points out that the military concerns on NAP are mostly about future handling of Karachi and Fata...with the mqm still not a peaceful thinker or player and Fata seemingly still lacking a way to govern...KP wants to absorb Fata while its history and lack of conformity to normal behavior suggests a separate provincial status...obviously Karachi has tobe handled by the provincial government and not by the mqm or three retired judges...
  • Nov18-2015--Jafar Express derails in Bolan killing 19...
  • Nov19-2015--while turmoil in the real sense has considerably decreased the army chief tells the US that afghan reconciliation is not possible under the present stranded turmoil...The army chief the US tells us is almost an indian in his thinking and attitude...The Indians have long protested that they cannot talk on Kashmir due to the troubled situation...it is when there is trouble that talks and reconciliation and solutions have tobe found...The army chief also wants to restrict funds to the mullahs who barring the wealthy terrorists get a few dollars from various Islamic groups or Saudi charity...The seminaries have been on the US hit list since the early sixties when ayub khan wanted to control their curriculum under US pressure...than mullahs used to be the chief protagonists against military rule and used to use the mosque to oppose militarism...as opposed to current militancy...The US was used to preotesting even anti USA mullah speeches...
  • Nov17-2015--The PMLn regime seems tobe worried at the army chief's USA visit but says a federal government representative will be present in all his meetings...
  • Nov17-2015--Interior minister says no present need to send cricket team to play in india given the terrorizing attacks by shiv sena on muslims and other extremist natured incidents
  • Nov16-2015--a Shaheen airlines pilot has been arrested for crash landing a plane in Lahore and causing the airport to shutdown...Punjab police forcibly arrested the pilot from Karachi...CAA said that the pilot was not responsible as the airline had the experience of four such incidents...others say the pilot was drunk...pilots are routinely alocohol abusers due to the easy availaibility of alcohol on planes
  • Nov16-2015--The French have found Syrian and Belgium links to the paris terrorism...many suggest that europe will have to restart strict border controls and the situation suggests that terrorists are moving guns and suicide belts with extreme ease thruout Europe...others suggest that the various factions in Syria and the opposing sides of various contending powers cause such extreme reactions especially when bombing on Syria is uncontrolled and without any specific purpose...given the situation...groups exist that can retaliate against the west and it does not seem tobe too difficult...europe is an almost undefended fortress in the circumstances...the situation cannot change too much in Syria with attacks on the IS which at best controls just a fraction of the forces which are available to middle east countries...it seems quite easy for them to attack all their opponents despite the situation which might not be too favorable given world opposition...
  • Nov16-2015--There seems tobe some disturbances in the government at the army chiefs visit to the USA where apparently he thinks he can pull some strings and straighten out some heads viz attitudes towards Pakistan especially viz india and Afghanistan...if the iSI chiefs visit is any indication he should keep pulling the new red herring for the western leaderships ie the IS...There are said tobe no problems with the USA viz military parts and spares and the only thing that the pro indian US supposes is a red herring for Pakistan has already been taken care of by the sharif regime viz further tightening their hold on hafiz saeed and the barely existing Let...apparently even though afghan negative behavior is similar to the past the army chief thinks he has some new idea's to deal with them...the army is still interested in beating up the local taleban although they are now regrouping in Afghanistan....!...Dawn says however the army chief has problems with the attitudes of the PMLn towards corruption and internal terrorist issues like NAP...recently the PMLn regime stopped an anti corruption judge who was about to issue a judgement in the SGS-cotechna case which some suggested would be 15 years RI for asif zardari...they also backed out from the Rangers campaign to control the mqm riff raff and cases against Altaf Hussain...many suggest that the PMLn had suggested to Altaf Hussein that the cases against him would be dropped if he became loyal to the PMLn...!The army chief's visit should generally be considered a joy ride for raheel sharif who now does not have much to do given the lackadaisical nature of the PMLn regime...the army chief seems to revel in flying visits and keeps moving around much more than past army chief's.Many however doubt that there can be anything new about Afghanistan handling or the US listening to Pakistan on indian terrorism...others are now suggesting jovially that Nawaz sharif is at best an education minister in the current scenario with the army chief taking over foreign affairs and defence...however he apparently cant handle even the education portfolio himself...however some PMLn wala's have strange notions about the army chiefs attitude and worry that he might be attempting to take over the government if he finds the right mood in the USA...he seems to have mounted a propaganda to elevate himself in the peoples eyes which many think is caused by being surrounded by media sycophants...the Pakistan army should many think focus on lowering casualties and keep their officers and men on the alert..this is not the sixties when an army uniform commanded respect and admiration and the opposing militants have a substantial fighting capability too...
  • Nov15-2015--the interior minister has removed over 13000 names from the ECL and allowed over 22000 people tobe issued passports
  • Nov15-2015--22 killed in Waziristan airstrikes
  • Nov15-2015--money launderer Altaf Khanania arrested in the USA...the Khanani part of a banned pakistani money changer he seems to have been transferring funds around for anti US groups...!
  • Nov15-2015--Reham Khan stuns people by saying she was actually not even married...!!amongst muslims there is actually no compensation for divorce...while most people thought that Imran Khan might have hit her she says that she was accused of hitting him, feeding him rat poison and being an MI6 spy...here they talk of her as an mqm/PMln undercover operative...she says she does not know his sisters and thought he was not religious and did not give her any presents...she also thought that he is uncommunicative, did not eat well and locked up her children in a room and PTI walah's sent her odd messages...he also apparently wanted her parents names so his spiritual advisor could check them out...!she says she got on well with his two bedroom living dogs and did not throw them out and even bought him a cupboard for his clothes...!and taught him about deodorants...!she says her attempt at a political wifely career floundered even though she thinks she can outsmile Imran...!...apparently she did not want tobe a chapati wife who mostly cook, clean, keep house and raise the children...!she also apparently wanted more competent domestics...
  • Nov15-2015--In what many say is a repeat of previous attacks against Islamic opponents around eight militants attacked several places in Paris killing more than a hundred...more than eighty were killed at a theatre and around forty at other sites including a football game attended by Hollande...France has angered militant islamists over the years by restricting Islamic dress norms...insulting the prophet and recently attacking the IS...Hollande vowed to fight back...in the middle east the IS is in retreat in various spheres and many find it surprising and doubt that they can even organize such overseas attacks...Islamic countries already on the defensive reacted with opposing statements condemning the attack as did various western leaders...most of the militants were killed in suicide attacks while one was shot dead by police...
  • Nov14-2015--Pakistan again tries to reengage with the afghans who are not very negotiation oriented...
  • Nov14-2015--Nepra orders a massive increase in hydel profit of Rs1.10 kwh for KP which will obviously further increase peoples woes by increasing the electricity tariff...recent massive fall in oil prices has only decreased tariff by upto two rupees and one wonders why furnace oil was rejected earlier since fuel hardly impacts prices...
  • Nov14-2015--despite increasing GST on phone usage and petroleum ishaq dar says he is opposed to increasing GST to 18%...the opposition critisized his meaningless economy which is anti people in price hikes and meaninglessly increases needless borrowing...the government seems tobe spending on a couple of projects but still the trillions in revenues disappear at even a faster rate than ever before...fiscal deficits can easily be controlled in the present economy thus reducing the need for price hikes, greater taxation and unnecessary borrowing...accumulating loans just because they might be cheap is also criminal
  • Nov10-2015--In the divorce debate Reham Khan claims that satan taught black magic was used to disrupt their marriage and the pakistani media promptly accused her of blaming Jemima...women in Pakistan have a deep belief in prayers and pir visits to ward off evil...like Imran Khans first divorce she also accused a domestic servant for attempting to cause trouble...marriage's in Pakistan are usually troubled by domestic problems , interpersonal problems and control issues...
  • Nov10-2015--The relatively small PTI is the only opposition group in parliament with all other groups almost government controlled one way or the other
  • Nov10-2015--the government which has some sort of national action plan against terrorism realizes the futility as despite Zarb e Azb militants are firing across the afghan border with the military reluctant to go after them...the other mixed up parts of NAP ie anti sunni(hate speech arrests) has failed because of its one sided approach...also deemed a failure is the action against terrorist financiers(used tobe mostly rich politicians, clerics or rich bussinessmen in the past) and foreign funding of seminaries which not many regarded as criminal since the countries major political groups are also foreign funded...what can be considered a success or a detterent are the numerous hangings which are generally abhorrent to many...other failed aspects are said tobe military courts which have been unable to show their honesty and legitimacy...however there is a general downward tendency in terrorism support and activity...sectarianism however seems to occur on and off as most sects lack religious legitimacy or religious sanction which causes many diehard militants hope of widespread praise and acclaim...
  • Nov10-2015--The Senate which wanted former members of parliament and their families tobe considered VIP's has backed down and said they are not...
  • Nov9-2015--Lawless Karachi is the creator of problems in this country...the police have suddenly realized that only half the people driving in Karachi have actual driving licenses...and now they learn there are at least 300 RAW workers installed in karachi's government dept's and someone still wanted cooperation with india on militants...India...Dawn must realize is a troublemaker...
  • Nov9-2015--The PTI protests in front of the Lahore governor house the killing of its 11 workers mostly by the PMLn in current LG elections
  • Nov8-2015--Imran Khan many say is realizing that he will have to rely on Punjabi organisers as his pukhtun supporters might have started to desert him...others suggest that removing area organisers like NA-56 's Chohan might not be enough and they should go back to to the earlier more popular elections of candidates tobe nominated
  • Nov8-2015--15 militants killed in Tirah raids
  • Nov8-2015--The media apparently finds that Pemra is turning into the second interior ministry especially on the advice on how to handle media reports about JUD, Let and FIF...usually the government has failed to prove any wrong doing on their part and reporting becomes suppression when something is deliberately not reported...the people are fully aware of the governments interest in suppressing any possibility of a restart of Kashmir operations somehow or the other...Nawaz Sharif has never been a pacifist and is now being seen as cowardly and frightened especially after UFA...
  • Nov8-2015--raheel sharif many say is about to find out that the USA might be willing to provide him planes(usually that are never ever used for a specific purpose) but they listen to india viz Afghanistan...Pakistan has recently again acquired old US trainers T-37 second hand from turkey and is interested in the US provision already approved of 14 F-16's, 59 trainers and 374 armoured personnel carriers equipped to handle IED's...why they want T-37's is beyond understanding given that they are almost 50-60 years old...!others suggest that the Karakorum and Mig trainers might have proved failures due to a lack of technology...the Army and FC have had trouble handling IED devices...
  • Nov8-2015--about three people have felt pained at the Imran khan divorce...the recent being reham khan and the previous two Imran khan and naeem ul haq...kahan dard hota he pata nahin...usually people feel a great relief when they divorce...reham khan suggests that they had no time for each other and thus could not get along and had mostly different interests...she said that the differences were due to an year long anti reham khan propaganda campaign...many felt that she had not proved her worth as the PTI went from good to worse...she also rejected that she had received money of a substantial nature even though the Imran khan camp suggests that she did...!she also pooh poohed the idea that she or somebody from her camp had poisoned Imran khan and says there was no stomach contents check...!she rejected reports that physical violence had occurred...many had worried about the reported interests in a filmi career and that she had refused the hero's role for Imran khan...she said that she despite having no filmi experience was just a mentor of a filmi company...rumours about when the relationship started had been making the rounds...others had suggested surprising resemblences... and the opposition of the family had been generally aired...others suggested that a pre nuptial was being negotiated after the marriage...women in Pakistan have in recent times expected huge rewards financially for marriage and child bearing...!!!others suggested that Imran khan had an interest in having another child...which is by the way a painful process!!
  • Nov6-2015--IMF says there is no improvement in the Pakistan economy and gives false inflation figures but still gives them another $502 million and urges more meaningless hardships for the people

  • Nov5-2015--while terrorism is at best on the wane in Pakistan the army chief still wants the Saudi's to help them deal with it...? The Saudi's have been pretty upset with Nawaz Sharif's Shiite shift in foreign policy...The army chief tried to reiterate non involvement but asks for Saudi involvement...the Pakistanis are a big joke in the international field who want money even to deal with terrorism at home...The Pakistan army has upto now refused to helpout in middle east trouble spots such as yemen, Iraq, Syria etc...maybe we should ask for Saudi troops tobe stationed in Fata and Afghanistan given our militaries weaknesses in dealing with those areas...!
  • Nov5-2015--The PMLn now wants the people to pay for gas utility losses by asking for Rs.1500 additional in terms of security charges...!first they wanted to increase rates so they could privatize the utilities...that has upto now failed...!
  • Nov5-2015--Bilawal Bhutto tobe charged for mohenjodaro festival expenses...starting straight out with corruption...!
  • Nov4-2015--CJ says laws worthless without enforcement while the people think the judiciary is worthless given its penchant to help the ultra rich and political inclinations...many have not noticed any improvement in administrative appointments nor other areas of government decision making...
  • Nov4-2015--Nawaz Sharif many say is directly following Modi orders in literally banning the JUD and LET from the airwaves
  • Nov4-2015--while Karachi is actually more peaceful due to the gag order on Altaf Hussein the government and SC refer the mqm to the LHC to enquire whether the order is permanent
  • Nov3-2015--government under threat from Modi bans media coverage of FIF, JUD and Let...while the government allows a lot of sectarian content that is likely to cause hatreds amongst peoples it has banned these organisations which are generally considered inefefctive to the kashmir cause...
  • Nov3-2015--PTI organisers call the local body elections a fraud and accuse the PMLn of suppression...in Lahore the elections had started by the PMLn mayoral candidate getting elected without any opposition giving rise to doubts about the sharifs and the PMLn attitudes
  • Nov3-2015--Apparently Sartaj Aziz cant work on afghanistan-taleban issues because of an anti Pakistan virus in the northern alliance..

the earthquake

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

the monument

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

the army image..

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

do u need this

the contest is not so straight

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

nawaz sharif's inability

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

military corruption

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

terrorists or dakoos

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

a new coas

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

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

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

cricket security

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

power crisis

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

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

tooti bhajji hakumat

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

the daily war on terror

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

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

aspiring tobe a revolutionary...?

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

the estranged privaticos

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

military despots

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

croissants...

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

beneficial tobe in government

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

the situation..

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

all but over...

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

half in half out

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

the mediator

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

degs and sidekicks

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

situation changes

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

attrition, pressurization...denoument...

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

the rabble rousers

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

shallow

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

an apt description

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

altaf hussein faultering or still blackmailing

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

the empty grave

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

french revolutionaries

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

the azadi march

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

change

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

emerging from teh underground

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

the fake revolutionary

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

just Rs.600

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

from a dawn blog

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

debacle in Dacca

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

the 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...
