The media is a buzz with the failed Turkish Coup. Images on TV, Social Media kept the world upto date and totally involved with the unfolding events. The public came out on the streets to thwart the Army's attempt to disrupt Democracy on the call of a popular leader. They lay down in front of Tanks, arrested and beat the soldiers. A victory for Democracy. Rest is now history. The dynamics of the Turkish Coup is a story by itself best left for another day. The most pathetic aspect of the Coup in Turkey transpired in Pakistan. PML-N, the ruling…

The month of July saw martyrdom of Burhan Wani, the freedom fighter from Indian occupied Kashmir, after that a sequence of violence erupted where scores of civilians were injured, martyred by the occupying Indian Army. Guns showered pellets on the protesting unarmed women, children and families who supported Burhan Wani Shaheed as their saviour. Curfew imposed with dozens of protestors left blinded by those millions of pellets showered on them ruthlessly! Is it for the first time that Kashmir has seen such bloodshed? No! Is it for the first time that people protested against the atrocities of Indian occupying army…

The U.N. has declared March 20 as World Happiness Day, recognizing “happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world.” Although, all 193 UN member states have adopted the resolution calling for a happiness greater priority but many of them are failed to adopt an inclusive and balanced approach to achieve this fundamental human goal. Some countries, however, have made happiness a public policy goal. Bhutan, Ecuador and the United Arab Emirates have appointed “Ministers of Happiness” to achieve the said goal. According to “UN World Happiness ‎2016” report, Denmark, Finland, Iceland…

ایسے وقت میں پختونخوا عوام نے تحریک انصاف اور عمران خان پر اعتماد کرکے حکومت کرنے کا اختیار انکے حوالے کردیا جب پختونخوا کا ہر ادارہ تباہ حالی کا شکار اور بدعنوانی میں بے مثال تھا، اقتدار ملنے کے بعد تحریک انصاف کی حکومت کیلئے سب سے بڑا چیلنج کے پی عوام کو تبدیلی کا نعرہ حقیقت میں ثابت کرنا تھا،__ عمران نے جمود کے شکار اور مسلسل روبہ زوال روایتی سیاست میں ایک نئے نعرے "تبدیلی" کے ذریعے جان ڈال دی، اس نعرے کے ذریعے ہی آپ نے روایتی اور خاندانی سیاستدانوں کی مروجہ سیاست کو چیلنج کیا، اس…

We have always been told about the horrors of Warfare when one is stuck between bombarding and marauding armies.We are often told about those of isolation when one is stranded off some island in the middle of the Pacific and then also about the dread of being left astray in the dessicated hell of Saharan Africa. A voice inside me asked me if our lives here in Pakistan are better than the war stricken Afghan, Somalian, Iraqi, Rwandan cities? Better than Saharan and sub saharan african countries so badly struck with famine and disease and civil war? Better than the…

ابھی دنیا کے سرکاری ہسپتالوں کے بارے میں رپورٹ پڑھ رہا تھا بڑی خوشی ہوئی کہ پاکستان کا نام بھی ہسپتالوں کی وجہ سے رپورٹ کا حصہ بن چکا ہے، یہ الگ بات ہے کہ نام کمانے کی وجہ خراب کارکردگی اور گرا ہوا معیار ہے، تحریک انصاف اور شوکت خانم کینسر ہسپتال کو عطیات دینے والوں کو یہ دعوی کرنے کی ہرگز ضرورت نہیں اور نہ ایسا کوئی دعوی برحق ہوگا کہ پاکستان کا نام رپورٹ میں شوکت خانم کینسر ہسپتال کی وجہ سے آیا ہے، میں دعوی کرنے والوں کے گوش گزار کرانا چاہتا ہوں کہ یہ رپورٹ…

There is an old saying that "health is wealth". A healthy person can work with efficiency to earn wealth, health being most important for a human being . In Pakistan health system is not up to the mark compared to any developing country of the world. In developed countries they give more attention to health system than road networks. Here in Sindh, the civil hospitals are in a dilapidated condition. The authorities have ignored basic facilities for the public, from thousands of villages and towns of surrounding areas people frequently visit government hospitals, but it is sad to say that…

Devoid of Foreign Policy Cohesion By Dr. Shireen Mazari

Had the latest Modi statement on Pakistan not coincided with Sartaj Aziz’s attempted redemption-seeking press briefing with journalists, after the rather visible and destructive policy drift, one would have been able to blast Modi for what one could term his usual anti-Pakistan tirade. Sadly, though, Modi’s lament as to whom India should talk to in Pakistan in terms of policy issues was given a damaging legitimacy by Sartaj Aziz when he declared that Iranian President Rouhani was correct in saying that Kulbhushan was not discussed in his meeting with General Raheel Sharif. So effectively Sartaj Aziz was terming the ISPR…

On May 6, this year, in an emotive moment, Obama embraced 79-year-old Shigeaki Mori, who survived the inhuman and first ever nuclear attack as an eight years old innocent child. At the occasion Obama said everything about ethics and humanity but couldn’t pick up the guts to extend an apology because that needs courage and a character. This pompous and arrogant side of US is not something new. Dig out the history and there is not a single incident where one will find them extending apology over their glaring mistakes, wrong doings and shameful acts, may that be dropping atom…
