The JIT Investigation By Syed Haider Raza Mehdi

Be the first to Comment | 172 Views
So finally they emerged. The cockroaches from the woodworks. The JIT investigation forcing them out. The Four Monkeys. Honorable bootlickers and servants of Nawaz, Maryam, Hassan and Hussain. You know Nawaz senses he’s in trouble when he brings out his biggest rats and cockroaches, or his biggest artillery and tanks to the front. Depends how charitable you want to be towards this terrible family and those who along with them have looted and plundered this country. This pack of vultures comprises Kh. Asif of “Koi Sharam Koi Haya fame”, the Empty Suit, Ahsan Iqbal, the "Bond King" Kh. Saad Rafique…

Panama: Links to daylight Robbery By Brig (R) Samson Simon

Was Protection of Economic Reforms Act 1992 meant to build foreign exchange and kick start development? I remember the discussions that followed after 1992. Many critics argued that the law would be misused for money laundering through Hawala and remittance cycles. At the heart of these arguments were mega projects with kickbacks. But the government maintained that money laundering and operating offshore businesses by Pakistanis without intimation to authorities under the operating laws remained a criminal offence. However loopholes facilitated laundering and evasion and there was no visible intent or action to stop it. Another argument given by the…

Maryam Nawaz keeps forgetting; Truth can not be substituted By Nimrah Rafique

Maryam Nawaz keeps forgetting one basic fact, that truth has no substitute. She had started off well though, you must admit. The only blue-eyed among her siblings, her father began preparing her to carry his legacy forward when he was apparently an opposition leader and Zardari ruled the country. Back then many amongst us had welcomed his daughter’s political appearances, considering it a fresh change that might help empowering women around the country. She often admits with pride how she gave herself a rebirth after Musharraf’s “dark” era ended. It isn’t wrong either. From exercising her right to look more…

Noon League is like a business Organization with MNS holding the master franchise and is himself the top brand.MNS has very successfully integrated his business model with the Government so as to take most benefit from the Govt. Rules and regulations which are changed for self benefit. The main beneficiary of this brand are Shareef Family which has spent billions of Gov Money in building a clean image. Now when the clean image of the brand is being tarnished day and night it is highly frustrating for the brand owners. That’s why they are spending billions (tax payers money) to…

May 12th 2007 – A Decade of Defiance? By Jehangir Mirza

Be the first to Comment | 763 Views
2007 was the year of rude political awakenings. A panic-stricken dictator had begun losing his plot. One blunder followed another as political & apolitical forces converged to fill the void. By March, lawyers had taken to streets protesting detention of a sitting Chief Justice of the apex court. Tensions rose high in the federal capital as Lal Masjid authorities relentlessly challenged the writ of state.Exiled civilian leaders flew in, only to be forced out & then later back in. Suicide bombers emerged on the scene for the first time and in remarkable abundance. For once, policy cracks left behind…

اندھا کالم By Saqib Malik

" اندھا کالم" فوج پر تنقید ضرور کریں، بس افسران اور جوانوں کی تفریق دھیان میں رہے. فوجی جوان ہمارے آپکے گھر میں رہتا ہے. اسکا خون آپکے میرے خون جیسا ہے. ہمارے اور انکے دل ایک ہی ملی نغمے پر دھڑکتے ہیں. ہم اور وہ عوام ہیں. اعلی ترین افسران دراصل سیاست کی سوجھ بوجھ رکھتے ہیں. سیاست دان دراصل اعلی ترین افسران ہیں. یہ میرے اور آپکی قسمتوں کے فیصلوں کے ذمہدار ہیں. ہم تو خدا کو نہیں بخشتے اس سے بھی شکوہ کرتے ہیں تو مقدس گائے تو ہمارے…

جے آئی آٹی اور اس کے گیارہ سوال By Mohammad Abdhu

عدالت نے صرف جی آئی ٹی بنانے کا حکم نہیں دیا بلکہ جی آئی ٹی کو وزیراعظم سے گیارہ سوال پوچھنے کا بھی حکم دیا ہے۔ عدالت تو نتیجے تک پہنچ چکی تھی۔ ابھی نااہل کردیتے تو نوازشریف ہیرو بن جاتا۔ مظلومیت کا ووٹ لیکر پھر آجاتا۔ جبکہ عدالت چاہتی ہے اب عوام کو بھی پتہ چلنا چاہئے شریف خاندان چالیس سال سے کیسے ملک کو لوٹ رہا ہے۔ اس لئے اگلے دو مہینے میں شریف خاندان کے بہت سارے نئے کھاتے کھلیں گے۔ مزید اثاثے اور کرپشن کے انکشافات ہوں گے۔ جھوٹ بےنقاب ہوں گے۔ خاندان کے نئے سے…

The Panama Fizzler By Brig(R) Samson Simon Sharaf

Be the first to Comment | 361 Views
“The secret of a great success for which you are at a loss to account is a crime that has never been found out, because it was properly executed.”- Honoré de Balzac The introduction to the Panama Bench judgment is sensational and apt. Perhaps the ruling judges allowed the dissenting judges to write this much in their honour. The quote most likely comes from Justice Khosa, known for his taste of good literature. Strangely the majority judgment betrays this tempo. It is contrary; sometimes conforming to questions of law, sometimes to judicial precedence and mostly disregarding both. It has confused…

PPP & the death of Morality By Jehangir Mirza

Be the first to Comment | 730 Views
Morality is dead when it comes to Pakistan Peoples’ Party. Just as Asif Ali Zardari looked all set to launch the Punjab offensive, a leaked document detailing direct orders from PM Gillani to Ambassador Haqqani has rocked the PPP. The letter dated 2010 – now confirmed by the former Prime Minister as genuine albeit ifs & buts – empowered the Pakistani ambassador to issue visas to Americans without consulting ‘relevant authorities’ back home. In an ideal world this disclosure alone should bury Peoples’ Party & its apologist diaspora under the rubble for good but umm, not in Pakistan. On the…
