|A Breath of Fresh Air by Dr. Ahmed Javed, PTI MN |
| By Hussnain Chaudhry | 1454 Views | | Opinion Articles
In many ways attending the PTI Minnesota dinner on 01/29/12 was a breath of fresh air. Unlike the politics that at least some of us have witnessed at some point in our lives in Pakistan, this was not about swearing an undying allegiance to a leader promising a brick for a stone against another ethnicity, nor was it about our tax-payer money sponsored billionaires claiming to be a God-sent gift to the beleaguered lot of Pakistan. It was an educated lot of people who have found a home away from home in Minnesota, but remain connected through what they have left behind or what they have brought with them, be it material or recognition of what their country has given them. They are every bit as Pakistani as their brethren back home.

|The time of conflict is over: by Raoof Hassan|
| By Web Management | 1845 Views | | Opinion Articles, National
Pakistan has survived a self-inflicted bloodbath for over a decade, or has it? This is a question that continually rattles the mind in the wake of the US entourage’s arrival in the country with a body language that is nowhere close to being friendly and a message that can only get Pakistan sucked in deeper into the quagmire.

|Pakistan heads towards enslavement of the spirit and the soul by Raoof Hassan|
| By Web Management | 1663 Views | | Opinion Articles, National
Imagine Altaf Hussain proclaiming that the real reason behind the threat to dissolve the provincial assembly is the growing popularity of his party in Punjab. Or Nawaz Sharif rushing repeatedly to Sindh when Punjab, his political bastion, grossly afflicted with widespread corruption and ill-governance, is literally ‘drowning’ in the dengue epidemic. Or the Chaudhrys of PML-Q clamouring innocence and discounting the widely-held perception that they joined the government to save their tottering political dynasty.

|The indictment, An article by Raoof Hassan|
| By Kamran | 2204 Views | | Opinion Articles, National
It is a combination of perceptible predictability and an eerie unpredictability that characterise the political and security environment prevailing in the country. The predictability factor relates to the manner in which the political mafias have indulged in wanton loot of the country’s riches, deprived the people of their inherent right to security and rendered the system corrupt and completely untenable. But the grave challenges this multi-faceted rampage is likely to throw up for the country’s sovereign existence remain predominantly a matter of conjecture.

|More of the old wine, Article by Raoof Hassan|
| By Kamran | 2782 Views | | Opinion Articles, National
The announcement of the holding the All Parties Conference (APC) was followed by a spate of speculation as to its motives and possible outcome. There was a general consensus that nothing substantial should be expected as, primarily, the congregation was meant to be an exercise in semantics and no critical policy shift was planned.

|PTI Socio-economic Agenda and Policies, Sheikh Zakir Elahi|
| By Kamran | 2008 Views | | Opinion Articles, US
It is a widely held belief that if free and fair elections were held in Pakistan today, there is a great chance that PTI would emerge as a clear winner. Different independent polls put the popularity of Imran Khan, the leader of PTI, well above leadership of PPP and PML(N). Fair elections could put PTI in solid position to form next government. Interests of common people have been always been neglected by previous governments. People are sick and tired of same old faces and their unfair policies. They are looking towards PTI as alternate leadership. As the time for elections nears, voters are beginning to question what solutions PTI offers. They want to know what PTI stands for and how PTI policies will benefit their lives and their families. Most importantly they want to know about the social and economic policies of PTI.

|A case for Imran Khan, Article by Raoof Hassan|
| By Kamran | 3746 Views | | Opinion Articles, National
Imran Khan has always confronted the proverbial question in whatever he has set out to do: will he make it? That was the question when his team was losing in the earlier stages of the world cup of 1992, but he was the proud recipient of the coveted trophy at the concluding ceremony. The same was the haunting question when he launched “Imran’s Tigers” to build a cancer hospital in memory of his mother.

|There is a need to purge the political landscape of the hate-exuding instruments: Rauf Hassan|

There is a need to purge the political landscape of the hate-exuding instruments
There are no two opinions about the fact that a vituperative campaign has been unleashed against the army and the intelligence agencies in the country. This campaign has intensified since the May 2 incident in Abbottabad and an impression is being created as if the two organisations are the principal villains behind everything sinister happening in the country, be it the terrorist activity, the setbacks on the foreign policy front or the depleting economic prospects to lift the country as also the state of relations between Pakistan and other countries.

|OF NARRATIVE, STRANDS AND STRINGS by Brig (r) Samson Simon Sharaf|
| By Imran Ghazali | 1950 Views | | Opinion Articles, Pakistan, US, National
Recent events in and around Pakistan have widened the fissures within a fragmenting Pakistani society. Sensationalism combined with opaqueness in policy has contributed to speculation and rumours mill tearing at the seams. If tweets, blogs and views of an educated liberal class of Pakistanis are a measure, the events are certainly taking Pakistan to the gallows with testimonies from our very own.

| " Echoes of the heart " by Ghulam Akbar|
| By News Management | 2040 Views | | Opinion Articles
Somehow it has happened. The long-and-often-ridiculed PTI’s founder and Chairman Imran Khan has forced his way into the thought-process of even those who till recently were dismissing him and his PTI as a lost cause and a closed case.
