Dear PML-N, Bashing PTI’s Party Workers Will Do You More Harm Than Good!

Dear PML-N, Bashing PTI’s Party Workers Will Do You More Harm Than Good!

By: Haider Rifaat PML-N has yet again managed to exercise unlawful power on innocent civilians, or the opposite party, thereof. Yesterday, the Youth Convention was intervened by a group of police officials who apprehended, jostled and harassed several PTI members including women and had the area evacuated on an urgent basis. It goes without saying that this obnoxious, dimwitted strategy was pre-planned by Nawaz Sharif and his party members in view of the protest scheduled on … Read entire article »

Account of an enlightening evening with PTI’s Minister of Education

By  Sipah-e-Jinnah Today i.e. 25 June 2016, my wife and I went for an Iftar dinner in Islamabad. It was a farewell for a Spanish diplomat I know from gym.  I was unaware of who the organizers were. There I was introduced to four  “boys” (these were 30somes and 40somes) who were all standing together awkwardly.  One of them introduced himself as the Minister of Education in KPK. When they found out I was from Lahore, they volunteered that … Read entire article »

NAP- without Abdul Aziz

NAP- without Abdul Aziz

By Dr Muhammad Hassan Auj The National Action Plan failed to deliver in the areas associate with religious extremism and is fizzling out in the air. Though its efforts should be applauded to whatever success it has made, but it failed to strike in the areas that were crucially needed. Eyebrows will be raised and questions will be asked to the one implementing NAP, not on the attack of Bacha Khan University and Charsadda where 21 … Read entire article »

Significance of the Name of a Political Party

Significance of the Name of a Political Party

By Obaidullah Khan You might see an illiterate man with a name Ilm Din or a poor lady with a name Dolat bibi. But you would not hear a right wing political party named as Communist Party or a left wing party with a name Islamic party. Name of a political party is to be suggested thoughtfully. It reflects its manifesto and popular tide it is planning to go with. Our political arena is demanding a new … Read entire article »

Leadership: Irking Passions or Guidance

By Misbah Azam During the mid-1960s, when America witnessed the Civil Rights Movement and the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, then the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which gave the voting rights to African-Americans, the Republican Party Presidential candidates, Berry Goldwater and Richard Nixon exploited the Republican Party’s “Southern Strategy” to woo the white conservative voters by appealing to racism against African Americans. Historians believe that 1960s Republican’s strategy created ready audiences for … Read entire article »

Aleem Khan’s politics: From NA-127 to NA-122

By Awais Saleem There is never a dull moment in Pakistani politics, more so when electoral fever is in full flow. The by-election in NA-122 has become a “do or die” affair for both PMLN and PTI. Battle lines have been drawn, emotions are running high, claims are being made and supporters of both sides are baying for each other’s blood. The PMLN, having the advantage of incumbency in the Center as well as Punjab, has traditionally … Read entire article »

Old habits die hard

By Dr Misbah Azam Pakistani society came from centuries old monarchies, oligarchies and the tribal systems. Almost half of its history Pakistan was governed by military and dictators belong to bureaucracy and feudal/family oligarchies. Consequently, masses still have propensity to look for messiahs who — in their beliefs — would drive them in the right direction where all of their problems would be fixed. Even after the globalization and free media access they show the proneness to idolize the politicians who boast about huge changes and talk what people want to hear. This behavior was clearly observed during last decade when the masses — especially the young generation — treated the electoral process as a war between the forces of malevolence and the benevolence. Most of the political elites in Pakistan … Read entire article »

Nilofer’s Corner: Interview with Seemi Ezdi Candidate for Islamabad Local Bodies UC 42 Election 2015 area f/10: 2,3,4 PTI

By Nilofer Qazi With the local bodies elections planned in Islamabad I thought it would enlightening to speak to a candidate before the elections and ask her a few questions on my mind. Since there is little information available thus far why not ask the candidates themselves. I hope to be able to ask similar questions from other candidates vying for seats in Islamabad. Today I ask Seemi Ezdi a woman standing for chairman of UC … Read entire article »

Nilofer’s Corner: Judicial commission’s findings do not imply that 2013 elections were ‘fair’

Nilofer’s Corner: Judicial commission’s findings do not imply that 2013 elections were ‘fair’

By Nilofer Qazi Imran Khan accused the electoral managers of ‘rigging’ the election of 2013. It has been over two years since these accusations were made; a protest that lasted 4 months and nearly brought the sitting Government to a standstill resulted in little change, attention or review of Pakistan’s electoral system. Many who support PTI have also observed Imran Khan’s statements claiming irrefutable proof of pre-mediated irregularities & fixing that have been shared with the … Read entire article »

I Have Lost All Respect For You, Mrs. Reham Khan!

I Have Lost All Respect For You, Mrs. Reham Khan!

By Haider Rifaat So, the hard hitting truth about Reham Khan’s fake journalism degree finally unraveled yesterday. The 42-year old journalist was thrown under the bus soon after the British newspaper had reported that her degree was forged and that she had not been entirely truthful about her qualifications. Even the ‘North Lindsay’ officials claimed, ‘We do not have anyone by those names or date of birth having attended this college. We have never done a degree … Read entire article »
