the scowler

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

Mario Puzo...

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

military justice

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

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

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

the counter american

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

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

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

foreign policy

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

a sage

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

a possible 2018 primeminister

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

The new and old

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

the chinese juggernaut

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

the kashmiris

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

internal security

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

karachi--the mohajirs have arrived

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

ethics

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

flag waving

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

the chinese

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

bluntly corrupt

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

muk muka

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

attitude and wrong impressions

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

and in the Us

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

syria...

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

who is teh problem...!

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

raheel shareef

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

corruption Inc...

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

the interiors funny side

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

trucks

trucks
the new truck

PIA

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

current politics

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

NSA

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

extreme soceity

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

problems for the rich in pakistan

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

the new justice system

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

the fauj

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

iran...!

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

what kashmiri's can expect...!

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

Pakistans history...on indian relations

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

The Daily PakistanPolitics April 16-30, 2016

  • Apr30-2016--An LHC judge challenges in the SC the SJC showcause for misconduct...
  • Apr30-2016--The US congress has refused to subsidize the eight old F-16's that Pakistan intends to purchase...Pakistan will now have to pay around $700 million for the old planes instead of $270 million...while the Pakistanis can hardly do anything more the foreign military financing was at best a loan arrangement...either the Pakistanis should go in and bomb Afghanistan to smithereens...the planes are at best going tobe cannibalized anyway since the F-16 is now almost redundant apart from the requirements of of US client states...at $700 million the planes might seem tobe expensive and Pakistan can make 35 Chinese planes in the same cost...we would suggest that pakistan airforce cancel the deal unless it is very hard pressed for a few more old planes
  • Apr29-2016--Nawaz Sharif who seems excessively paranoid is now blaming an anti government plot for exposing his families Panama leaks shenanigans...records show the sharif brothers as the only beneficiaries of the Panama Leaks scenario...most of the money went abroad in sharif suitcases which has then been returned as Panama Leaks profits...
  • Apr29-2016--india depicting its paranoia is activating laser and infrared beams across its border with Pakistan...such measures are only utilized to protect highly expensive items and buildings...crossovers on the border are very low and normal policing methods would theoretically be sufficient...such rays can be seen thru special methods and according to film theories can easily be avoided...
  • Apr28-2016--According to the PMLn regime Nawaz Sharif has disowned his children and all the suitcases that he has sent abroad...Nawaz Sharif's children are corrupt not me says Pervez Rashid the liar for the primeminister...one of the children is apparently the heir apparent Maryam safdar...!the idea that that his children only are corrupt after Nawaz Sharifs lifetime of political and industrial shenanigans is laughable at best...!obviously the government has regarded the panama leaks as fraudulent behavior of chakri rulers and decided to shift the blame to the children rather than the two who have benefited the most...what happened to the sharifs in the past can hardly absolve any present wrongdoing...the sharifs have suffered because of their own attitudes and involvement in coup plots, smuggling, tax evasion and refusing to repay loans...the sharifs had a minor factory at the time of nationalization and it was nationalized like everything else and there was no individual harassment of the fake mian's...!Pervez rashid obviously does not know any buzurg's as there are none in the PMLn nor was he ever seen alongwith his other colleagues sitting at the feet of his buzurg listening with apt attention...maybe Pervez rashid does not know what a buzurg is as the ones he thought of as a buzurg was a lifelong chakri and in and out of jail alongwith his children and grand children...!
  • Apr28-2016--talks with india a meaningless exercize
  • Apr27-2016--two DHA heads the corp commanders of Lahore and Karachi were demoted due to DHA scams...The DHA once limited to karachi has spread all over the country and as a result corruption has infused into the militaries otherwise no nonsense approach...in Karachi they have turned to luxury cityies and in Lahore the kianis(siblings of Gen kiani) and hammad Arshad (sibling of a singer)have apparently run off with Rs15 billion after buying land for 1.82 billion...the 13103 canals near SKMT should cost Rs14000 per canal but the DHA contractors charged the public 1.1 million each...still cheap by todays standards but who sold them prime property at such cheap rates...the corruption and more corruption has hammad arshad and the kayani siblings in trouble...!but to the moneyed there is always one solace ..more money...to the people General Raheel seems unable to control corruption in even the ministry of defence run DHA...how will he control the Dr. Asims, zardaris and sharifs...!
  • Apr27-2016--the development theme that Nawaz sharif is trying to propagate to douse the sharif's outright corruption that has surfaced in the panama leaks is also just as much a lie as anything else...about electricity generation the latest bulletin by the electricity authorities... demand 15000mw...generation 11000 mw...no bloody movement on lowering prices...my last electricity bill...15000...reduction due to lower fuel costs...5000...additional surcharges...5000...taxes 22% or Rs3000...petroleum prices are down but not one item has become cheaper...not even transportation...india has not budged an inch despite Nawaz sharif literally being in the indian pocket...so asto the panama corruption ...it is upto the PMLn parliamentary party since both Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan seem uninterested in the commission hoopla...Imran Khan has said that the KP logging timber mafia is more corrupt than the primeminister...200 billion to say 20 billion...what is imran khan saying...with SKMT rigmaroles he cant afford to go after the fat primeminister...one wonders at our politicians and their open intransigence...who is going to deal with the corrupt loggers and corrupt primeministers Imran Khan..?...and who is going to the kick the primeminister out of power...!duping the people is the only function of the Pakistani political system...!The army chief...he sells out for a measly foreign trip...!! he too really cant handle even the corrupt Lt generals and major generals what to talk of corrupt colonels and brigadiers...!!
  • Apr26-2016--The Panama leaks certainly have the Sharifs entire family linked to corruption...usually it was one or two sharifs who did the chakarbazi of bank loans and importing industrial plants as iron scrap...most of Nawaz Sharifs paper and sugar plants were imported that way and they had to spend years just installing and making them work...however Nawaz Sharif has never done an honest day of work
  • Apr26-2016--PTI minority activist held for killing Soran Singh...who was killed in a motorcycle attack
  • Apr25-2016--As the USA again advocates the baseless Haqqani theory the pakistan armed forces go and bomb 30 hideouts in Tora Cheena between Darra Adamkhel and Orakzai...and gun down five militants in mohmand...the army it seems is defending itself against meaningless US accusations
  • Apr25-2016--some sort of pre decision might have been reached in London many suggest as the PMLn pushes a lightweight judicial commission at the PTI while the PTI accuses Nawaz Sharif of fathering criminals or the corrupt...The PPP suggests that they really don't want to kick out Nawaz Sharif as he is their best bet to make some sort of a comeback...PPP has been unable to galvanize the country while Imran Khan suggests that if the government does not straighten itself out they may occupy Raiwind in the countries first corruption only political movement...Imran Khan needs to occupy Sindh in the next elections to make any sort of impact...mqm attempts a sitin outside the CM house for its lost ethnic war workers suggesting that they are willing to be PPP's babes or even the PTI's as Mustafa Kamal starts to frighten them...!!Mustafa Kamal should remember that LGs should not look like an ethnic dictatorship or karachiism at its worst and be multi party and people oriented rather than mohajir oriented only...at least in looks, intent and purpose...federal government can only be based in islamabad and karachi can have a mayor or an administrator only...many suggest that after anti terrorism was regarded as their basic job thus earning them no public appreciation the army chief too wanted to move into the anti corruption quagmire as demonstrated in Karachi but he too probably balks at going to the PM house and throwing out or dragging out the corrupt lohar...the PPP too dislikes anti corruption while mqm dislikes anti criminality...many suggest that the PPP is unwilling to let go of Nawaz Sharif thinking he will push his vote power to bring them into power rather than the PTI...
  • Apr24-2016--without the CJP and a hesitant acting Chief justice the Panama Leaks probe is on hold with no consensus and how to go about it...many suggest dragging Nawaz Sharif out of Islamabad by his plug grown hair...!!it seems the Safdars and the Sharifs are all living off the Panama leaks...The sharif's panama duo have bought the safdars a condo in Dubai while Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz have received over a billion from the Panama accounts...so one does who is more corrupt the sharif kids, safdars or the sharif rulers...many have even suggested that the "mian" which is supposedly a Mughal honorary title is fake as the sharifs were not businessmen before pakistan...
  • Apr23-2016--PTI mpa quits and joins the PSP...earlier this month a PTI candidate for NA-245 withdrew hours before the election and joined the MQM
  • Apr23-2016--the luxury minded Pakistan army orders six Cessna aircraft for starting its own medical safari service...these are surveillance and medical evacuation/transport aircraft and can carry upto 14 people...usually they can evacuate one person and are generally of little use in larger military problems such as disasters and terrorism incidents and therefore will probably benefit special cases...
  • Apr23-2016--while Nawaz Sharif left with his dollar packed suitcases after the musharaf coup some in the PMLn said that suitcases have come and gone on a regular basis since than and the last suitcase could be ready too...Nawaz Sharif would in effect be ready flee/ or leave the country even if the possibility of an opposing decision are reached......even during his present tenure he has made almost 30 visits to England not all for health reasons...many think he was going to check his panama investments and during three years he has received over Rs700 million from England probably all from his panama empire...others suggest that money came from illegal foreign accounts of his mother and father...but the payments were only made to Nawaz Sharif and shahbaz sharif...others suggest that the payments came from his partymen and even the zardari empire in exchange obviously for something spurious...Nawaz Sharif should realize that reputations and character cannot be cleaned like hands with just a soap wash...In a democracy resignations are the way...if criminality is proved than he should be heading to jail or court...foreign sources of money, accounts and businesses of politicians upto now are considered major corruption pathways and the SC cancelled the sale of the Steel Mills to someone in the Cayman Islands just for that reason...Nawaz Sharif is known to have linked up with indian steelmakers thru the Caymans...!!!...Nawaz Sharif has announced a three judge Panama Leaks commission...Nawaz Sharif obviously does not have the presence of even Ayub Khan whose monthly speeches were listened too with attention...he has answered personal allegations of involvement in terrorism/weaknesses in handling Punjab and panama leaks thru speeches which no one has listened to for obvious reasons...The CJ who is on tour is a mild pro government/PMLn type character and having him on the commission is meaningless...anyway the CJ should be available to act on commission decisions even if they by chance reach a decision of guilty and there are known tougher judges available on the court
  • Apr23-2016--PTI minority mpa sardar soran singh shot dead in Buner
  • Apr23-2016--after the PMLn was found inherently dishonest the decision on the formation of the judicial commission was left to the CJP who will take the decision after he returns...the politicians have been unable to find a viable system to investigate their own shenanigans...The musharaf era NAB has been shackled and judicial commissions at best have never been able to deliver...
  • Apr22-2016--police kill three TTP militants in karachi
  • Apr22-2016--according to the ECP Nawaz Sharif is an ordinary billionaire although he has been receiving millions(over 200 million) annually from his son in England ...earlier last year he repaid a Rs6 billion 30 year old bank loan by selling his Ittefak foundry...he also has textile, paper and sugar assets which seem tobe underpriced...!alongwith agricultural property...his son in law a mansehra resident has 235 acres in Rajanpur...!his wife has properties in the hilly areas and his nephew has assets of Rs325 million...!if that isn't a "khaobatair" group than who is...his father when he came from jato umra in 1947 was a lohar..!the lohar in waiting Maryam Safdar apparently only owns panama companies...!!!
  • Apr22-2016--apart from the Baloch FC generals who might have been booted out due to indian connections the case of two Karachi corp commanders demoted to major generals after retirement for DHA shenanigans raise questions of what the military is training its generals to do...DHA made the headlines for going into luxury orientation rather than keeping itself to utility military plots and affordable housing...obviously there was more money in that for the corp commanders who head local DHA's...how military officers are going to afford multi-million rupee plots is something many wonder about...these are some of many avenues that the military is wrongly following and wasting money apparently just for perks...and making corp commander land /business empires
  • Apr22-2016--As the "khaobatair" or "botoxyPM" started another round of investigations into his own corruption scandals the army kicked out senior army generals for corruption...earlier a chief justice had been indicted for a Bahria paid Rs.300 million Luxembourg vacations and even General Raheel Shareef spent a three week family holiday in "Sun city"...Our poor system of controlled investigations renders the corrupt almost free to ply their wares...earlier the NAB had verified and supported corruption by just asking officials to return the amounts...that excludes the millionaire billionaire type of corrupt which includes Nawaz Sharif, doctor asim, iftikhar Chaudhry and asif zardari...!!!The case of the corrupt generals relates to a confiscated sports car by the FC in balochistan..two other officers were killed while testing the sports car...!!!The car had apparently been given to the FC chiefs son...!!!while military officers are notorious for receiving commissions and going on paid tours funded by suppliers they are never usually indicted for corruption..they usually get fired and than reemployed in AWF and FF...routine corruption is also common among the administrative and supply divisions and corps routinely collect bussiness payments which are spent for spurious purposes...in the old days the corps used to make and sell their own drinks as well...military officers are routinely involved in over land smuggling from various points in Pakistan while smuggling arms has been going on from balochistan by military police since the 1970's......earlier this year according to sources raheel sharif and family spent a vacation in Suncity while others say he had just gone to scout the vacation city for the future...!many suggest that with the high level of medical care available in Pakistan many are shocked at Nawaz Sharif's visit to England for a medical examination...others say he had just gone for another round of face fillers (botox injections)and a nip and tuck...at least one industrial minister made fun of the primeminister's apparent corruption by sitting at his meeting with eyes closed...army corruption can only be ended by the widthdrawal of all types of perks...earlier the last army chief had literally allocated all defence commercial areas in Rawalpindi to kayani's...!while raheel shareef has allowed some investigations into the misdeeds of kayani's and come NLC officers there has never been any wholesale corruption challenge to army officers...earlier apparently an ISI chief appointed only kayanis thruout his army tenure to whatever position he could in the ISI...The refusal of the ISPR to tweet on the matter is quite surprising since he had been tweeting even on serious policy matters...maybe he too is on the take...!
  • Apr21-2016--seven policemen shot dead in Orangi Town area who were there on polio duty...
  • Apr21-2016--five apply for the job of PCB cricket coach..mickey Arthur, dean jones, tom moody, stuart law and jimmy saddle
  • Apr21-2016--The irresponsible Pakistan army wants a whopping Rs920 billion for the next fiscal year apart from all the CSF funds and 1 billion dollars a year for Fata as well...the threat perceptions that it cites it is already capable of handling and it should use corp earnings and substantially reduce unnecessary perks and investments in upmarket DHA costs..if the army which is now usually coming from well off families is worried about housing for its retired officers than the askari style is more than sufficient and restrictions should be placed with one plot or house during a career...DHA which is too expensive for officers anyway should be wound up or privatized...
  • Apr20-2016--The army which has effectively failed to root out terrorism now also wants across the board accountability...surprising for the army that its chief wants that...the military has always wanted praise even for just doing its job...many have wondered how the Abbottabad commission report was never published...why open and shut corruption cases against the likes of zardari, Nawaz Sharif and Iftikhar Chaudhry disappear into thin air...it has always been the military that protects its hired angels...Nawaz Sharif the corrupt angel now also wants to investigate the funds collected by Imran Khan for floods in 2010...while that might be necessary too why he remembers it now when he is the one facing the current charges...he only needs answer the charges against himself and his lohar and pehlwan family...!!!it clearly reflects his personal involvement in chakri financial deals and receipt of suspect funds from panama sources
  • Apr20-2016--suicide attack on tax office in mardan one killed
  • Apr20-2016--chotoo gang surrenders in rajanpur
  • Apr19-2016--after its plans for a watered down commission failed to excite anyone the PMLn now wants a parliamentary committee to get the PPP to support it and wrangle some laws thru the senate as well
  • Apr19-2016--Inzamamul haq already afraid of cricket czar role as he shys away from even dictating the team selection saying he will cooperate with coach and captain
  • Apr18-2016--The Chotto gang on the backfoot on rajanpur islands as SSG commandos, helicopter gunships and family arrests complicate their survival...with air superiority and surveillance there is little chance for the gang
  • Apr17-2016--while David Cameron is being referred to as "Dodgy Dave" due to his links to the Panama accounts many think Nawaz Sharif has outlived his utility and should be referred to as the "Chakry Sharif"...both Cameron and Sharif have listed huge contributions from their equally chakry parents...which many regard as corruption payments
  • Apr17-2016--PMLn trying to form a commission on the damaging Panama Leaks which have clearly shown the corrupt financial nature of the sharifs headed by a judge whose wife is a PMLn worker...PTI wants it headed by the CJ while the PPP is seeking a parliamentary commission headed by Raza Rabbani...in a democratic system elected officials found involved in corrupt practices usually are supposed to resign
  • Apr17-2016--many feel that a selection committee of acknowledged successful cricket players like inzamam and mohd Yusuf is better than selectors headed by failures like Haroon Rashid...however the mentality that a team cannot function with regular changes will have tobe changed as failures need tobe replaced by emerging successful players...England became successful after they brought in known t20 players with both bat and ball...however they too failed when they thought that full length deliveries could not be hit for a six...at that stage a fast bowler who could bowl bouncers at the chest was the only possibility of success or bowling way outside the offstump...Stokes failed when he decided to bowl on the legstump...Eoin Morgan made the mistake of not changing a strategy even though he was faced with a player who could bat and bowl...and they had not seen his end ball heroics before...Braithwaite was the complete t20 player...a fast bowler who had also opened for the west indies and luckily wanted to play for the west indies as a country...it was noticed how top order batsmen came out and slogged away...even the staid indian openers were willing to step out and hit...only the big hitting sides survived to the last four...Pakistan had no such batsmen...tobe successful on the Pakistan scene inzamam will have to take over coaching and management as well and become another moin khan...Shehryar Khan should accept failure and retire peacefully or be ready tobe picked up and thrown out of PCB headquarters by u know who...!
  • Apr16-2016--Inzamamul Haq who early on did not know how to take singles or run between wickets being considered for chief selector...while inzamam has been successful with Afghanistan as a coach his success as a selector is unlikely as he rarely looks for new talent and prefers dragging a team along...most Pakistani selectors look amongst the smouldering deadwood for replacements rather than bringing in and training new talent according the requirements of various types of cricket...it is not just selection but forcing the players to play according to the requirements of various formats...In the recent PCL all the captains are retired...however the burly inzamam who once took a bat to beat up indian spectators will obviously not be interfered with in matters of selection or sifarish...
  • Apr16-2016--The SC supporting anti PPP forces allows secret polls tobe held for LG top positions...that would allow some government opponents tobe elected...In a secret ballot u could theoretically even buyout the mqm in karachi
  • Apr16-2016--The brave toungue wagging clapper army has finally descended on the dessert plains of rajanpur to bomb out what can at best be described as rural or katcha area dakoos who were apparently mishandling the police...pictures show that rajanpur islands seem tobe open space uncultivated islands and can hardly hide dangerous terrorists or dakoo's
  • Apr16-2016--The chakry PMLnwala's are trying to appoint Sarmad Jalal Osmany one of the many controlled Sindh judges from the retired pool to a one man weak commission to investigate the financial wranglings of the sharifs...recent revelations showed that Nawaz sharif, shahbaz sharif, Maryam safdar, the sharifs mother, the sharifs sons are all involved in financial irregularities viz the Panama leaks and 200 million level gifts to the sharif brothers...how a Pakistani industrialist who rules Pakistan can have such wranglings in panama and England and how Maryam can send over crores of rupees which she gets from committees...!!according to one source she and other industrialists have setup 300 crore rupee committees...!!!many feel that a one judge commission is too inconsequential and a three man serving judge panel is essential to investigate the sharif family chakar's...according to one source Nawaz sharif was seen on his hands and feet begging for a favorable commission...!while judicial commissions usually push things under the carpet...example the Abbottabad commission report as yet unpublished...there also should be an across board power to the commission to initiate judicial proceedings on all controversial and illegal activities of the sharifs financial activities in England...be they hedge funds, sister loans, English bank loans or gifts from their mothers and fathers...panama accounts, multiple residential estates and supposedly a high rise apartment complex...!on the local level how Maryam committees run into crores of rupees and how the money is transferred abroad...?

the monument

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

the army image..

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

the contest is not so straight

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

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...

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...!!

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...!!!

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...

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 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...
